What is wellness and fitness insurance?

Wellness and fitness insurance is a type of professional liability insurance that helps protect professionals like personal trainers and yoga instructors against claims of injury and negligence.

Liability insurance provides financial support for hiring lawyers and paying settlements, so you don't have to dig into your savings. It also provides peace of mind that you'll have support if a claim is filed against you or your business.

We know your job is taking care of your clients. Our job is to provide the insurance you need. The GEICO Insurance Agency has teamed up with Berxi to make insurance easy for you. Together, we're ready to help you with affordable, same-day coverage, 24/7 access to your online account, and a team specialized in wellness and fitness insurance.

Who needs wellness and fitness insurance coverage?

A professional liability insurance policy is often carried by fitness professionals to provide protection from certain liability claims and damages.

But why would you sue a fitness instructor? Say you're leading a class, and a client who's attending sprains for their ankle and is out of work for a few weeks to recover. Or you're spotting a client when a piece of equipment lands on their foot, and they have medical expenses as a result. In both cases, your clients might want to be reimbursed — so they file a claim against you and your business. Even if it's not anyone's fault, it's incredibly helpful to have liability insurance to lean on if you need to hire attorneys or pay settlements.

How much does wellness and fitness insurance cost?

Wellness and fitness insurance policies can cost as little as $169 a year. The price of each policy depends on things like:

  • Your line of work
  • Your years of experience
  • How much you work
  • Any previous claims filed against you

What does wellness and fitness insurance cover?

Berxi offers wellness and fitness insurance options that include flexible limits of liability coverage and convenient payment plans. The most common wellness and fitness coverages provided by Berxi are:

  • Professional Liability Insurance

    Protection against claims of negligence or making a mistake that caused bodily harm to another. Typical limits of liability range from $500,000 per claim/$1 million in aggregate to $2 million per claim/$6 million in aggregate.

  • Defense Counsel

    If a claim is filed against you, we retain a lawyer for you from our network of defense attorneys specializing in wellness & fitness–related legal situations. We also pay for related defense cost (e.g., lawyer fees, court fees, expert witness costs). These defense costs are outside the limits of your insurance. This means that money spent on your defense won't be deducted from your insurance limits — so if you have a $1 million limit, you'll still have $1 million to pay for any settlements or damages.

  • Consent to Settle

    We work with your lawyer to reach the best possible outcome for you. We won't settle a claim without your approval.

  • Good Samaritan Coverage

    If you provide professional care to someone who is not your client in a first aid or emergency situation and that person files a claim against you, your policy still applies.

  • HIPAA Violation Defense

    If a claim alleges that you violated privacy rules in connection with private health information, we provide you with access to counsel and will reimburse you for costs related to HIPAA proceedings — including relevant HIPAA fines. Amount covered: $25,000 per policy period.

  • Licensing Board Protection Defense

    If a professional licensing authority is investigating matters related to your professional conduct, our policy provides you with legal defense. Amount covered: $25,000 per policy period.

  • Wage Loss/Deposition Expenses

    If we ask you to attend litigation activities (e.g., a deposition), our policy reimburses you for actual lost wages and any necessary expenses you incur (e.g., travel, meals). Amount covered: up to $1000 per day.

  • Reputation Coverage

    If you face a threat to your professional reputation, we can provide you with a crisis management/public relations consultant to help clear your name. Amount covered: $50,000 per claim.

  • Worldwide Coverage

    Your policy applies on a worldwide basis, as long as a claim is brought against you in the United States (which includes any U.S. territories or possessions).

  • Business/General Liability Coverage

    The policy applies if someone files a claim against you alleging that your premises or operations caused them bodily injury or harm. Amount covered: $1 million occurrence/$1 million aggregate.

  • Medicare/Medicaid Reimbursem*nt Endorsem*nt

    If you're audited by either Medicare or Medicaid, we offer reimbursem*nt for related accountant or attorney costs that result from the investigation or defense of the audit proceedings. Amount covered: $30,000 for a covered audit and related expenses.

  • What are wellness & fitness insurance "limits", and how do they work?

    Wellness & fitness insurance limits are similar to what you may see on your car insurance policy. Limits break down into two parts shown below:

    Example: $1 Million/$3 Million

    • The first number ($1 million) is the "per claim" limit, meaning the maximum amount of money your policy will pay for each claim.
    • The second number ($3 million) is the "aggregate" limit, meaning the maximum total amount your policy will cover you in any policy year.
  • I already have personal trainer liability insurance through my employer. Why would I need more?

    Think of it as an added layer of security that's dedicated specifically to protecting your assets, career, and reputation.

    Your employer (e.g., a large gym) might have a policy that protects its brand, but in the event that you – an individual instructor – are named a lawsuit, your employer's policy might not fully protect you. Or your employer might want to settle a claim, but you might want to dispute it. Having your own policy can help you feel more in control of the outcome.

  • Where can I manage my wellness and fitness policy?

    It's easy to manage your policy with Berxi. Please see Berxi's contact info, for help to make a payment, file a claim, and more.
