A. Our PT insurance policies all include the following as standard, which provides comprehensive cover to personal trainers.

  • Personal trainer liability insurance – Either £1m, £2m, £5m or £10m
    Liability insurance for personal trainers covers them for claims, damages and injury to members of the public or their property. This could come about if you or one of your clients causes damage to the gym in which your sessions are held.
  • Professional Indemnity cover – level matched to that of your Public Liability
    Should one of your clients injure themselves and deem it to be because of your negligence, then Professional Indemnity protects you. Any claim could be the result of a client claiming you gave bad advice or set them a task which in turn, caused them an injury.
  • Sports Equipment cover – £500 as standard for FREE (up to £30,000 available)
    The tools of the trade which you use are protected by our policy too. Up to £250 of cover is included as standard, which ensures any damage to your equipment caused by a client or third-party is covered.
  • Personal Accident cover (not included as standard – optional extra)
    This part of the policy protects the personal trainer themselves. Depending on the specific injury, your policy could pay out if you were to injure yourself while taking a personal training session.
