People make decisions every day. Some are relatively simple and affect only the individual: bagel or eggs for breakfast? Jeans and t-shirt or khaki pants and collared shirt? Other decisions require an individual to process multiple aspects of a situation involving others and make a decision based both in logic and emotion. In cases such as these, individuals must follow established guidelines, along with their own personal code of ethics, to help them make the soundest decision possible. Personal trainers, along with other health practitioners, find themselves making such decisions every day. It is important to keep in mind that health practitioners are held to a higher standard than the average vocation because of the uneven relationship between the professional and the patient, so trainers must be especially careful to follow ethical guidelines and maintain the highest professional standards possible.
