Lowest Annual Rate with No Added Fees
A quick scan of the membership rates below shows that IdeaFit has the lowest rate among the competition. But looking closely at IdeaFit’s personal trainer insurance rates shows you’ll also be paying a membership fee. Most insurance carriers not only charge an annual premium but then also tack on additional fees like IdeaFit’s membership fee. Be sure to watch out for paying extra to add more modalities, surcharges based on your locale, and other hidden costs. We don’t want to add any confusion to our rates, so we offer one, flat annual rate to all our members across the country. With no additional fees, IFG sprints past the competition with the lowest annual rate.

HIGHEST PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY AND GENERAL LIABILITY LIMITS
K&K Insurance ranks number one with high limits for their general and professional liability. While high limits might make you feel more secure, it may actually offer no real benefit and in the case of K&K, causes their rates to be the highest of those we compared. Personal trainer insurance coverage limits should be set with extreme prudence. Too high means your members are paying for something they will likely never use, too low and they might not have enough coverage in the event of a claim. Our limits are set following years in the fitness and wellness industry. Understanding risks helps us set smarter limits, which balances great coverage with affordable rates.
Occurrence Form Coverage Included
Occurrence form coverage is crucial for allowing you to still file a claim for an event that happens when your policy is active but after the policy itself has expired. For example, your policy expires on December 31st but a client that attended a class several weeks before waits until January 1st to file a claim. The claim event occurred while your policy was active but without occurrence form coverage, your insurance carrier will most likely not honor the claim. Insurance carriers that say you have to file a claim while the policy is active for it to be covered use what’s known as a claims made policy. Be careful, 40% of the carriers in our comparison do not use occurrence form, even though this is by far the industry’s preferred coverage.
INSURANCE PROGRAMS USING OCCURRENCE FORM
PROGRAMS NOT USING OCCURRENCE FORm
- Sports & Fitness
Stolen Equipment Coverage Included
As a fitness instructor, you rely on your gear in order to put clients through the perfect workout routine. When this gear is stolen, your ability to give a great session can be severely impaired. This no-fun scenario is unfortunately a real possibility members can face at some point in their careers. That’s why we include up to $1,000 of stolen equipment coverage with a $250 deductible with our personal trainer insurance program. Of the programs in our comparison, we are the only one to include this important coverage.
Identity Protection Plan Included
Today’s business environment necessitates using technology but this opens you up to a cyber incident putting your identity at risk. We produce personal trainer insurance for the real world and provide a full $25,000 to use towards identity recovery services if your identity is ever stolen. K&K insurance is the only other provider to also include an identity protection plan.
Personal Trainer Student Insurance Available
Training to become a personal trainer can be intense. You will be required to learn a variety of subjects in a relatively short amount of time before jumping right in with clients. Knowing students are the next generation of fitness leaders, we choose to provide our full personal trainer insurance program to students at the discounted rate of only $59. Sports and Fitness also offers a student rate but tacks on additional fees.
