Our Fitness Instructor Program is designed for U.S.-based personal training, exercise, aerobic or Pilates instructors directly supervising an individual or group engaged in fitness and exercise activities. Coverage is provided by a carrier rated A or better by A.M. Best Company.
We're happy to advise that coverage includes virtual training provided by fitness instructors to their clients. The policy provides coverage for instruction under your direct supervision or organized by you, 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) - Coverage does not extent to any training material that is acessible to the general public.
We expect that all reasonable precautions will still be taken when you are assessing potential new clients online, including but not limited to: health assessments, waivers/release forms, and 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 virtual training.
Please note, virtual training/instruction does not extend to any training/instruction that includes gymnastic apparatuses, tumbling, or stunting (including pyramids), or 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.
