This requires a lot of hands-on instructions, helping clients through complex movements and tough exercise routines. Within the industry, many accidents occur each year. A client slipping on sweat as you run them through cross-training stations is one of a million all-too-common unforeseen events that can seriously impact a trainer’s personal finances and put a career in jeopardy.

Coverage should be accessible and reliable, such that when you have to file a claim, you have confidence knowing your insurance company has your back. A good policy combines great coverage provisions, affordability, and excellent customer service. Find out more about our highly-rated programs designed just for personal trainers.
Personal training requires clients to conduct exercise. Conducting almost any exercise requires some form of movement. Movement creates opportunities for accidents and injuries to occur. When you are engaged with a client, you are responsible for their health and well-being. Liability insurance covers those liabilities which are inherent to the business such as injury, damage, or other mishaps.
Broadly, general and professional liability helps cover the majority of claims that can arise. These provisions have generous coverage limits in order to safeguard policyholders to the greatest extent possible, while also maintaining affordability and quality of coverage. Without personal trainer insurance, you could be left paying the thousands that a claim can incur completely out-of-pocket.
Our plans come with robust coverage limits and additional protections that help safeguard our members from a wide array of possible loss events. Personal trainers retain a large amount of liability because their services are generally hands-on and can be physically tough. Examples of coverage afforded under our plans include:
- General liability claims - a client is switching positions in a tough P-90X workout routine when they slip on some chalk left on the floor from the last workout. Their broken hip requires surgery which they hold both the gym you are working at and you personally liable for.
- Professional liability claims - a client is performing the set of front squats you told them to, with the weight you loaded, and then hurts their back going a little too heavy. They have demanded that you cover their medical bills for their back surgery and ensuing disability. For professional liability claims like this, our policy includes a $1 million per occurrence limit with a $3 million annual aggregate.
- Product liability claims - you quickly wipe down a piece of machinery before a client does their reps and they have an adverse allergic reaction to the cleaner. They are insistent that you are responsible for paying for the doctor’s visits the reaction necessitated. Claims like this have a $1 million per occurrence limit.
- Stolen equipment claims - you are packing up your slam balls and kettlebells after a session when a robber demands all your gear. You are afforded $1,000 worth of coverage with just a $250 deductible under our program.
- Damages to rental property claims - you are renting a space in a CrossFit gym and the client you are working with slams their barbell after clean and jerks. When the weights slam into the wall, they leave a gaping hole in the drywall that your landlord says you are responsible for fixing.
