Our Weight Lifting Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our worldwide travel insurance can cover you whilst weightlifting abroad for leisure or competition. This includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation, and more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have a travel insurance policy with another provider, such as your bank, but it does not include cover for weightlifting, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection under our “Activity TopUp” policy.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you for weightlifting in the UK. Our policy provides personal accident, and if selected, can include additional Income Protection.

What does Weightlifting Insurance cover?

Weight Lifting Insurance is designed to financially protect the insured should they get accidentally injured whilst weightlifting in the UK and abroad.

Our policy will protect you whilst weightlifting in the UK or abroad, whether Olympic or gym style depending on your requirements. 

For those weightlifting in the UK, our Sports Accident Insurance covers things such as broken bones and physiotherapy costs.

We can include Income Protection on this policy which safeguards a percentage of your take-home salary. That way, if a weightlifting injury meant you were unable to work, your insurance policy would provide you with compensation for the work you miss.

If you are heading overseas, our Sports Travel Insurance policy also covers a range of eventualities, from lost luggage to the cost of medical care if you sustain an injury or become ill.

Woman exercising with weights

Why do you need Weightlifting Insurance?

Weightlifting sits amongst the highest risk sport groups due to the increased risk of injury from repetitive muscle movements and heavy weights being lifted.

Weight lifting (gym work) is a common exercise to undertake in the gym as it is a proven technique in enhancing and building muscle strength.

Weightlifting (Olympic style) involves two standard lifts which are used in weightlifting and these are known as the ‘snatch’ and ‘clean and jerk’.

Making sure that you have personal insurance in place to protect yourself is key before you begin to lift any weights.
