Personal Trainer Insurance

What is the purpose of Personal Trainer Insurance?

 If you work at an educational function or trainer in the fitness industry as a personal trinear, fitness economy class, a fitness instructor or something like that, you are responsible for the health and safety of people who are monitoring and training.

No matter how much care is taken to provide a safe learning environment, there is always the possibility that someone under your supervision may suffer an injury that affects long-term or permanent. If this happens, depending on the circumstances, they may be entitled under the civil law of the United Kingdom to claim compensation from you.

If the nature of your injury is severe enough to affect their long-term quality of life or ability to work and earn a living, you may be responsible for the costs of medical care for their lost income. Potentially, you can spend the rest of your life to compensate pocket.

It is precisely for this reason that a certain type of insurance policy is required whenever the education or training of any kind in the industry of fitness is achieved because the claims that are made by anyone you are responsible for is going against your insurance provider, not against you personally.

This is not only common sense, it is a legal requirement. Instructors and personal trainers, depending on your circumstances, may not be equipped to provide financial compensation for significant long-term claimants. This could only condemn the coach to spend his career fighting to pay off a debt, but leave the plaintiff uncompensated without the financial means to maintain their quality of life if your injury or health problem removes their ability to income. 

It is precisely for this reason that the law requires industry professionals the opportunity to have an insurance policy with an insurance company duly registered because the insurance provider will have the means to meet claims of success.

Usually only training professional fitness on their own personal trainers, independent, they must obtain their own personal insurance policy. If you are under contract labor by a third party, such as a gym or a health and fitness, insurance will be your responsibility.

Note that if you rent space for a meeting or training class that works as a private company, the premises of a third party which is not the same as being an employee of the third party, and will organize their own insurance policy as it does not protect you.

When I was in college, two groups of boys they knew were at boxing and kickboxing club  for students of each sports center at the University.

Coaches kickboxing club had qualified an insurance plan in which an insurance provider will assume all liability for claims in exchange for an annual fee. Each student who joined the club at the beginning of the year has been charged with a nominal fee for coaches to fund the insurance contract.

The other guys who were training at the boxing club do not bother with insurance at all police. Nobody was seriously insured in this club I'm aware, but if one of the students had received a blow to the head which caused brain damage or something and they had left him unable to continue their studies and pursue a career, the boys club training is economically hard hit by probably the rest of their lives, if the injured party or his family had successfully claimed compensation.

So if you want to work for yourself as a personal trainer or something similar, be sure to meet their legal obligation and sort an insurance provider for the benefit of themselves and those in their care.
