As a personal trainer you do everything you can to keep your clients fit and healthy. But while you give advice and guidance to help them stay in good shape, there’s still a risk that they could injure themselves and, as a result, make a claim against you. Whether you’re a self-employed fitness instructor or run personal training business, it’s vital to ensure you’re protected financially should things go wrong. From legal battles to damaged equipment, disgruntled employees to your own injury, controlling risk with a good fitness liability insurance plan is essential for anyone in the industry, whether a business owner or self-employed trainer.

Hiscox fitness instructor insurance will also provide cover for those who teach groups, rather than 1;1 training. Class instructors provide training advice and lifestyle guidance for each of their group members, and must ensure their instructions are carried out in a safe manner. Our fitness fnstructor insurance offers protection for you, your equipment and your clients in the face of an accident.

Tailor our policies to your business needs and vulnerabilities; choose the products that are right for you and create a single, comprehensive personal trainer insurance solution.
