Personal Trainer Liability Insurance
As a certified personal trainer, it is vital to protect your fitness career against potential liability issues in case a client gets injured during the course of training. NACAMS offers personal trainer liability insurance that is specifically designed for fitness professionals like you. For less than the cost of a yearly gym membership, you can reduce the risk of being held liable for third-party claims arising from bodily injury, medical bills, property damage and related legal defense costs.
Do Personal Trainers Need Insurance?
In a perfect world, there would be no need for personal training insurance, but the fact is - injuries and accidents happen.
In 2015, Planet Fitness agreed to pay Susan Butler $750,000 to settle a personal injury lawsuit in which she broke her hip and wrist while working with a personal trainer at Planet Fitness.
According to Smiley & Smiley, LLP, one of their clients sued a personal trainer for negligently recommending an unsafe exercise. The parties eventually settled for $300,000.
