As a fitness professional, you carefully plan out every workout for your clients. As an entrepreneur, every equipment purchase or marketing effort is carefully calculated. We know how detail-oriented you can be, but sometimes accidents slip through the cracks when we least expect it.

Just one accident could cost you thousands in medical bills, lawsuits, or property damage. Without insurance, you would be expected to pay out of your own pocket.

Even the most meticulous fit pros experience accidents; that’s why they turn to personal trainer insurance for protection. Today Insurance Canopy is sharing six stories of real claims our customers have faced and how their policies covered what would have otherwise been expensive out-of-pocket costs.*

6 Claims Fit Pros Face

1. A fitness pro had to defend themselves in a lawsuit for an incident they were not at fault for. The total cost of this claim was $61,045. Professional liability insurance allowed them to get coverage for the wrongful suit.

2. A client's exercise band slipped and shattered a glass door, causing $3,000 in damages. General liability insurance allowed the trainer to cover the cost of replacing the door.

3. A client tripped over an object during a fitness class and needed surgery. The medical bill and lost wages of the client totaled $43,175. General liability insurance allowed the instructor to cover the cost of the claim.

4. A client was injured on a weight machine during a workout. They sued the gym and the trainer for negligence and injuries. The trainer’s professional liability insurance policy was able to pay out the $217,814 bill.
