Tips To Keep In Mind
Your liability insurance
must cover substantial insured amounts for bodily injury caused to third parties in general. Plus, do not forget to extend the guarantee for deposited goods (changing rooms), etc.
Exhaustively list all activities proposed in particular optional like massages, sauna, etc. and declare them to your insurer. Check that they are included in the definition of the activities insured by your contract. Also, any new activity must be declared prior to the contract.
We advise you to ask any practitioner for a medical certificate, dated less than 3 months, of not having any physical or mental ailment. This request must be repeated every year.
Qualified supervision is essential for devices using freeloads (bars with load discs, etc.) as well as for devices that operate on electricity.
Your equipment must be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. A regular, visual and manual check must be carried out regularly. Plus, a more elaborate check must be carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, any absence or delay will engage your responsibility in the event of an accident.
A maintenance book listing the various checks as well as the various anomalies noted must be kept by the personnel of the fitness room.
Remember to inform your practitioners in writing of the need for them to take out personal trainer insurance
in the event of a bodily accident occurring during the practice of physical activities which will compensate for their damage in the absence of any responsibility.
There are always inherent risks in personal training sessions. This insurance protects the gym owner and the personal trainer, from claims of any mishap that could happen during a session.
