Wellness and Fitness Insurance
What is wellness and fitness insurance?
Wellness and fitness insurance is a type of professional liability insurance that helps protect professionals like personal trainers and yoga instructors against claims of injury and negligence.
Liability insurance provides financial support for hiring lawyers and paying settlements, so you don't have to dig into your savings. It also provides peace of mind that you'll have support if a claim is filed against you or your business.

Who needs wellness and fitness insurance coverage?
A professional liability insurance policy is often carried by fitness professionals to provide protection from certain liability claims and damages.
But why would you sue a fitness instructor? Say you're leading a class, and a client who's attending sprains for their ankle and is out of work for a few weeks to recover. Or you're spotting a client when a piece of equipment lands on their foot, and they have medical expenses as a result. In both cases, your clients might want to be reimbursed — so they file a claim against you and your business. Even if it's not anyone's fault, it's incredibly helpful to have liability insurance to lean on if you need to hire attorneys or pay settlements.
How much does wellness and fitness insurance cost?
Wellness and fitness insurance policies can cost as little as $169 a year. The price of each policy depends on things like:
- Your line of work
- Your years of experience
- How much you work
- Any previous claims filed against you

What are wellness & fitness insurance "limits", and how do they work?
Wellness & fitness insurance limits are similar to what you may see on your car insurance policy. Limits break down into two parts shown below:
Example: $1 Million/$3 Million
- The first number ($1 million) is the "per claim" limit, meaning the maximum amount of money your policy will pay for each claim.
- The second number ($3 million) is the "aggregate" limit, meaning the maximum total amount your policy will cover you in any policy year.
I already have personal trainer liability insurance through my employer. Why would I need more?
Think of it as an added layer of security that's dedicated specifically to protecting your assets, career, and reputation.Your employer (e.g., a large gym) might have a policy that protects its brand, but in the event that you – an individual instructor – are named a lawsuit, your employer's policy might not fully protect you. Or your employer might want to settle a claim, but you might want to dispute it. Having your own policy can help you feel more in control of the outcome.
