Diary July 27th 2018 - related laws for personal trainers

the following is a given topic for this week's ACSM exercise physiologist study group.  " Should a breach of contract be treated by tort low or by contract law ? "

sample answer
A contract is simply a promise or performance bargained for and given in exchange for another promise or performance, all of which is supported by adequate consideration. In examining exercise testing and prescription activities, the law of contracts affects the relationship between exercise professionals and clients. The client may receive physical fitness information and recommendations on exercise training. Likewise, the professional may perform exercise testing in exchange for payment, or some other consideration to value. This contract relationship also encompasses any related activities that occur before and after exercise testing, such as health screening prior to testing, exercise prescription, and first aid and basic emergency care that arises from exercises temporally associated with on-site provider services. If expectations during this relationship are not fulfilled, lawsuit for breach of contract may be instituted. Such potential suits allege non fulfillment of certain promises or a breach of alleged warranties that the law sometimes imposes on many contractual relationships, contract law also has implications for inter-professional relations, such as those with equipment companies, independent service contractors, and employees (ACSM, 2005).

ACSMエクササイズ・フィジオロジスト自主学習グループのサイトで出題された今週のテーマは「パーソナルトレーニング契約等における契約不履行は不法行為法で対処されるべきか? あるいは、契約法で対処されるべきか?」

パーソナルトレーナー関連の資格試験にはよく出題されるテーマだと思われます。
