Bespoke, cost-effective cover protecting your fitness business

 

We are able to provide your gym or fitness studio with various types of cover to suit your specific requirements, such as:

 

Public liability

Protecting your business against bodily injury claims or third party property damage claims that may occur, which the gym may be held responsible for. We can include various cover limits for your policy - ranging from £1m to £10m.

 

Employers liability

Employers liability can be a legal requirement even if you employ staff on a part time basis or have volunteers helping the business. We provide advice on this area of insurance as it can often be a grey area for gym and fitness businesses due to the nature of how staff are employed. Employers liability will protect the business from injury / illness claims by employees that the gym may be accountable for.

Buildings and contents

We can include cover for additional contents including gym equipment and machinery that you need to insure. You may also own the building or require insurance as part of the lease agreement. Please let us know your requirements and we can provide you with specialised cover. 

Business interruption

This element of cover can often be vital to a package policy for gymnasiums and fitness studios.  For example, should your gymnasium have to close for a lengthy amount of time due to flood or fire, business interruption cover will allow your business to still receive the turnover it would have gained if it was able to trade.
