Solid, Affordable Health & Fitness Insurance
Working in the health and fitness industry naturally means you’ll be working closely with clients and members of the public. Having the right cover in place is vital to protect yourself if you’re faced with a client who suffers an injury as a result of a service or advice that you offer them and then decides to sue you for compensation.
Dependable insurance doesn’t have to break the bank. Our Fitness Gold policy (one of the Salon Gold family of policies) offers a selected package of covers to protect you against the risks you face in the course of running your health or fitness business. You can rest assured that it provides full liability cover and you’ll be surprised how affordable it is.

With Fitness Gold, we also offer some optional covers that you might wish to add to your policy. These include employers liability insurance, which is a legal obligation if you employ staff in your health or fitness business. You may also choose to add personal accident cover, or stock and equipment cover. You can add any extra covers that you want, but you don’t end up paying for covers you don’t need.
As a general rule, employers should have insurance that covers all their members of staff, so if you’re working for a professional health and fitness establishment, such as a gym, then check that this is the case and you shouldn’t need to take out additional insurance yourself.
However, if you’re self-employed, or if you’re employed but you do extra freelance work, then you will need to hold your own insurance policy.
At Fitness Gold, we include Public Liability, Product Liability, and Malpractice Insurance as standard covers, up to a maximum of £5 million. Our affordable rates mean that you can easily protect yourself from a huge range of issues which could leave you and your business exposed to substantial claims and hefty legal costs.
