Your focus on health in your community is at the heart of your mission. You need to protect that mission, along with every other aspect of your operation. This may include your members, employees, property and any clients or athletes you may train.
Our coverages for gyms and other health and fitness organizations are focused on the physical and mental practices that enrich our lives and lift our spirits.
Why You Need Coverage: Claims Scenarios
A client sustained a chronic shoulder injury to his right shoulder after several training sessions. He sued his athletic trainer and the gym for neglecting to tell him how to do an exercise properly. After speaking with their designated claims staff, the gym felt protected by their Great American Professional Liability policy, which included coverage for failure to instruct.
Equipment Breakdown coverage
A swim club sustained a power surge that caused electrical damage to equipment in the pool’s control room. The swim club had to close its doors for seven days to make repairs. Fortunately, the club had added Equipment Breakdown to their Specialty Human Services policy. Equipment Breakdown provided coverage for the damage caused by the power surge, loss of business income and the communication expense to announce their reopening.
