The fitness industry may have been permanently transformed by COVID-19. Virtual and outdoor sessions are still popular with fitness fans searching for low-risk ways to exercise, and traditional gyms are reopening. As the industry continues to recover, your personal trainer clients might be busier than ever.
Allied Health Combined Liability (Allied Health)* insurance can help them protect their small businesses. Now might be the perfect time to consider how you can best serve the personal trainers on your books, whether they are seeking Allied Health cover for the first time or are ready to renew.
Allied Health Basics for Personal Trainers
Allied Health insurance is essential for personal trainers, providing them with Professional Indemnity and Public Liability coverage. This combined cover protects them against allegations of negligence and claims resulting from their advice, as well as customer injuries or property damage claims.
Key Allied Health Exposures for Personal Trainers
Allied Health Combined Liability insurance can help shield personal trainers from key exposures, including:
It’s easy to accidentally leave out information during a busy training session or overlook a client’s medical questionnaire. An Allied Health policy can help your personal trainer clients prepare for potential claims around advice and recommendations made to their customers.
Injuries are common in the fitness industry. Your personal trainer clients will need coverage for their legal and defence costs if a customer is injured due to their real or alleged negligence.
These exposures and others show the importance of Allied Health coverage for personal trainers. These policies are likely a ‘must have’ for your SME clients and their fitness businesses.
Here’s an actual claim example** from an insurer partner showing an Allied Health policy in action:
The Insured is a sub-contractor providing personal training services at a gym. The Claimant attended an exercise class conducted by the Insured and sustained serious injuries to her knee. The Claimant sought damages from both the Insured and the owner of the gym.
A settlement sum of $110,000 was agreed upon based on noneconomic loss, out-of-pocket expenses, future medical treatments, past economic loss as a result of needing time off work for treatment, future economic loss, and need for domestic assistance. A further $25,000 in legal costs were incurred to defend the Insured.
