We'll help you work out the best cover for your gym but here are a few of our gym specific cover options.
Experience tells us that long standing businesses are lower risk. However, no matter how long you’ve been trading, we can offer advice along the way to help get the right cover and reduce your risk. For example, did you know you’ll need to have your lifting equipment inspected periodically to meet health and safety regulations. We can help you get this done. Naturally, all premiums and rates are dependent on risk and business factors.
We know that the modern gym isn’t just a few dumbbells and machines. Often there’s other office equipment (including computers and other electronics), stock (e.g. protein shakes and supplements) and sometimes even kitchen and health care equipment. The good news is, provided you tell us about everything you’d like covered, we can cover a huge range of contents under this policy. We do need to say however, our cover is subject to certain minimum security requirements.
We build in a degree of flexibility so that you can get the right cover levels for you from the outset. If for example you start offering new treatments or activities, you will need to update us. However, if you’re taking on more staff or your turnover has increased, we will review this at renewal and update your policy then. We can tailor cover to include activities away from your gym provided you give us full details when you set up your policy and cover is agreed. In terms of your buildings and contents cover, we recommend that you base this on the current replacement values to avoid 'under-insurance' in the event of a claim.
As a gym owner it’s likely that you’ll have a mixture of full and part time/temporary employees to run your classes. If this is the case, you can rest assured that all employees under your supervision and control as an employer will be covered as part of the employer’s liability aspect of your policy. We can offer £10 million employers liability cover to make sure you’re well within the legal requirement of £5 million cover.
These are just some of the key features and exclusions, full details will be found in your policy wording. Show policy documents
If and when it comes to the crunch and you need to make a claim, we have an in-house team who work hard to understand all the details of your claim then get these to the insurer to get your claim resolved as quickly as possible.
If there are any complications with your claim, we’ll follow this up with the insurer and keep you updated with the progress of your claim.
Call us or email us with; your policy number, a phone number to reach you on, details of your claim and photos where possible and relevant.

As the system measures an insurer’s financial situation, allowing you to predict their ability to meet ongoing policy obligations, it is an important factor.
Also, there are a number of main contractors that will not sub-contract works to any companies not insured with an insurer with a minimum of an A-financial rating (as determined by established ratings companies).
