Why do fitness studios need insurance?
Fitness studios work hard to meet the goals of a thriving business while helping clients meet their personal health goals. Unfortunately, even the most successful studios are not exempt from substantial insurance claims for client injuries or other unforeseeable accidents. Exercise your right to ensure your facility is protected by insurance experts who are ready to do the heavy lifting. American Specialty Express makes purchasing insurance quick, painless and simple, providing coverage for the early risers, the late-evening lifters and everyone in between.
The following information is offered as a snapshot of the coverages provided through the American Specialty Express fitness studio insurance program. For a complete description of coverages and exclusions, the policies should be read and reviewed in detail. The precise coverage afforded is subject to the terms and conditions of the policies as issued.
What are some parameters for this type of coverage?
Our fitness studio insurance program offers the ability to customize coverage to the specific needs of each individual business. Studios made up of primarily instructor-led sessions are a perfect fit for this type of coverage. Liability protection includes coverage for injuries to patrons, and independent instructors can be added as insureds. Additional coverage options are available for higher limits of insurance to protect the business’ contents and equipment, including inland marine, hired and non-owned automobile, and abuse and molestation coverage.
What kinds of classes would an eligible fitness studio offer?
Cardio Kickboxing (Non-Contact Only)
What are some general examples of when this coverage might be used?
Scenario 2: A new participant arrives at a Saturday sunrise yoga class. After completing the required registration forms, she joins the group of regular attendees. The class seemingly goes very well, and all participants claim to leave feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day. Two months later, however, the new participant files a claim for a pulled hamstring which she claims was the result of an inadequate warm-up prior to yoga. The claim totals $60,000, including bills for physical therapy as well as lost wages from an inability to attend work. The fitness studio owner is shocked by the demand, but not surprised by American Specialty’s readiness to handle the claim.
Scenario 2: The family fitness studio grand opening was full of great snacks, colorful face painting and eager customers purchasing new memberships. After the event, however, it was discovered that a significant portion of studio equipment had been vandalized. It will cost an estimated $10,000 to replace the damaged yoga mats, free weights, stretching bands and exercise balls. The owners are disappointed by the occurrence and file a police report. Thankfully, they purchased the optional contents and equipment coverage* for their fitness studio insurance from American Specialty Express. They quickly forward the claim to the skilled claims adjusters at American Specialty who begin exploring coverage for replacement equipment.
*This example is eligible for coverage based on the added inland marine coverage to protect the business’ contents and equipment.
