Personal Trainer Liability Insurance

As a certified personal trainer, your focus is on improving people’s lives. But liability’s always lurking: a client could drop a kettlebell on her foot or sprain an ankle during a workout. Things happen. And even if it wasn’t your mistake, you’ll need to have liability insurance in place to protect your savings account (and business) if you need to hire lawyers or pay settlements.

You may already have insurance through your employer, but know that their policy might not be enough to fully protect you in the event that you’re named in a lawsuit. That’s why many fitness professionals, and personal trainers in particular, choose to buy their own liability insurance, too — it’s an added layer of security that’s dedicated specifically to protecting their assets, careers, and reputations.
