What insurance do fitness instructors need?
Public liability insurance
As with any job or vocation that requires working with people, public liability insurance is an important cover for fitness instructors. Sometimes "no pain, no gain" goes a little too far!
From park pothole-induced twisted ankles, to a dumbbell on someone’s toes, if it happens under your instruction, you could end up with a claim on your hands. It's not a legal requirement, but is one of the most popular covers for businesses.
Two reasons why you might want to consider it:
- If you’re renting space, it’s likely that the owner will require you to have a public liability insurance in place, and may even specify a minimum level of cover.
- Could you afford the cost of a potential claim? For as little as £5.13, you could get cover for the month.
Professional indemnity insurance
As a fitness instructor, clients may seek your advice. With all the best will in the world, you can’t be sure that the advice you give is always going to be helpful. Perhaps the client left out key information when they sought your guidance, or simply interpreted your suggestions incorrectly. Either way, if it results in injury, they may sue you. Professional indemnity insurance covers legal and compensation costs in relation to this type of claim against you.
Our PI also includes media liability insurance, which relates to any media (e.g. images, information) that you share in a professional capacity. This may be particularly relevant to you if you run a blog or social media accounts, as it covers things like accidental copyright infringement.
Sports equipment insurance
Our equipment insurance will cover the cost of repair or replacement of your equipment. Whether you own or rent your own dedicated gym space, filled with your equipment and furniture, or you transport your equipment to different locations for class (e.g. client’s homes, the park, rented space), you may want to think about getting it insured.
Employers' liability insurance
If you hire any full-time or part-time employees, you’ll need employers' liability insurance. It works in the same way as public liability insurance, except that it’s designed to cover injury and damage affecting your employees, rather than members of the public. It’s the only element of business insurance that’s a legal requirement, if you have employees.
