Personal trainer insurance
Even if your client’s injury during their workout wasn’t your fault, it’s nice to know you’re insured. And if someone damages your equipment, the right cover will take care of that too.
What does personal trainer insurance cover?
Seeing a range of fitness journeys first-hand, giving all-important motivation and helping clients reach their peak physical fitness is why you became a PT. But while your clients rely on you to get them into shape and give the best advice, sometimes accidents can happen as a result of your guidance.
10% of personal trainers paid £5.89 a month or less for their Superscript business insurance between July and September 2022.
Our insurance for personal trainers is designed to protect you from incidents such as a client suffering an injury, someone's property getting damaged during one of your sessions, an injury to you or your equipment getting broken.

What insurance do personal trainers need?
Professional indemnity insurance
Part of being a personal trainer is giving tailored guidance and health plans to your clients. And while you'll always try to give the best advice, sometimes it doesn't go to plan.
A client could easily leave out some vital information or misinterpret your advice, which could then cause them an illness or injury. If they went on to sue you, professional indemnity insurance would cover legal and compensation costs that are linked to the claim.
If you run a blog or social media account to show the results of your client's progress, you'd also be covered for claims like accidental copyright infringement under our PI cover, as it includes media liability insurance.
Public liability insurance
Public liability insurance for personal trainers is a popular cover as you regularly work with and around people. This type of cover steps up if a client or member of the public sues you as a result of an incident that happened in one of your sessions or under your direction. This could include a client pulling a back muscle after attempting a move incorrectly, a weight landing on someone's foot or a phone falling out of a pocket during some jumping.
Claims that require legal defense and compensation can become expensive, which you would have to cover yourself if you didn't have insurance. But from £6.84 a month, you can protect yourself and your reputation from claims and the costs associated with them.
Another thing to consider is that if you're renting gym or studio space, the owner may require you to have public liability insurance.
Personal accident insurance
With all that movement and equipment, it can be easy for you to have an accident yourself. If you, or one of your employees, suffers an injury that means you're no longer able to work – either permanently or for a period of time – personal accident insurance can offer compensation to cover your earnings.
Sports equipment insurance
If you supply your own workout equipment and it gets broken accidentally, our equipment insurance will cover the cost of repair or replacement, so you don't miss a single session. Sports equipment insurance will also cover equipment that you transport to different locations.
Employers' liability insurance
From fellow PTs to part-time admin support, if you hire any employees, you’re legally required to have employers' liability insurance. It's similar to public liability insurance, but covers injury and damage claims made by your employees as a result of being at work.
Our employers' liability offers £10 million of cover as standard.
