Personal Trainer Insurance
Insurance for Personal Trainers
Insurance coverage designed for personal trainers who are based in the United States and are directly supervising or instructing personal training, exercise, aerobic, Pilates classes or an individual or group engaged in fitness and exercise activities.

Virtual Training Insurance Coverage for Personal Trainers
The policy provides insurance coverage for virtual personal trainers under your direct supervision or that is organized by you for your clients, including material created by you that is accessible to your clients only (through a private platform such as a password protected website or a closed Facebook group).
The policy does not provide Insurance coverage for any training material that is accessible to the general public.
You are required to maintain all reasonable precautions when you are assessing potential new clients online, including but not limited to:
- health assessments
- waivers/release forms
- interviews with clients prior to instruction or training
We encourage our clients to consult with their attorney to consider special waiver/release agreements that will apply specifically to online virtual training.
Virtual training/instruction does not extend to:
- Gymnastic apparatuses
- Stunting (including pyramids)
- In-water activities
We do not provide coverage for cyber liability, so if you are taking payment or collecting personal information online and it is compromised, there would be no coverage under the general liability policy.
