The Ideal Coverage for You

Insurance Canopy offers you a combination of both General and Professional Liability Insuranceon our personal trainer policy, while other insurance companies will make you purchase both separately.

  • General Liability Insurance protects you against third-party bodily injury or property damage claims that arise out of your training operations. For example, if someone slips in your studio, you could be at risk of a claim.
  • Professional Liability Insurance insures your training practice against negligence claims, meaning you were negligent during a session which caused injury or harm to your client. Whether it was on purpose or not, you could be held liable to pay for any client injury.
  • Tools and Equipment Insurance offers you protection for any gear you have in transit or in storage at your facility where you work. If someone were to steal your training gear and you get it on camera, your insurance could help you out.
  • Medical Expense Coverage is a good-faith portion of your insurance which could pay for the medical expenses of someone who gets injured under your training guide. Instead of going to court, you could cover their fees and be at peace in the situation.
  • Additional Endorsements are available to be added to your personal training insurance base policy. If you offer professional dietary or nutritional advice to your clients, you can purchase this coverage to add to your policy. Other endorsements can quickly and easily be added to your policy during checkout.

Protect Against Risk

You might not be aware of the types of claims you could face while training your clients, but the truth is that accidents can and do happen and you need to be protected against the worst case scenarios.

  • Slip-and-Fall Incidents- Say you’re training out of a home gym and your client slips on some water and sprains their ankle. You could be liable for the medical expenses of your client.
  • Property Damage Claims- When you rent space in someone’s facility, you could be liable for any property damage that happens as a result of your training.
  • Stolen Gear Claims- If you travel to-and-from your gym with all your gear and it gets stolen out of your car, you could file a claim and get help with recovering your items.

Yes. Unfortunately, accidents happen everyday due to physical activities or negligence of a personal trainer. Personal trainer insurance is an important component of your business and is designed to protect your financial assets if you were to be sued as a result of your business operations.

You could be held liable for claims that include injuries, illnesses, or damages arising from your personal training or massage services. The legal costs alone from claims like these can be financially devastating. You also may be held liable to pay for multiple doctors visits, and any loss of income if your client is unable to work. With personal trainer insurance, you'll have the protection you need just in case something goes wrong, and avoid having to pay hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars out of pocket. Hopefully you won’t ever need to use your insurance coverage, but it is much safer for your business to have a policy in place in case anything ever happens.

Having an additional insured means that you can add property management or HOA’s to your insurance policy so they can receive protection if they are named in a suit due to a covered business-related loss or claim you have caused. If you do in-home training at your house, you could add your HOA as an additional insured. Or, if you are training someone in a privately owned gym, you can add that gym as an additional insured.

In addition, a written contract, such as a venue, studio rental, or employment contract is required to add another party as additional insured. Additional insured status cannot be granted to a friend or co-worker as an extension of your policy. Each individual must purchase their own policy to obtain liability coverage.
