The activities that take place at gyms expose these businesses to a wide range of risks, including both property and liability risks. Gym insurance helps protect gyms in Vermont from many of the risks they face.
Gym insurance is a specialized form of commercial insurance that’s specifically intended for gyms and similar businesses. Policies typically contain multiple coverages in order to meet these businesses’ varied risk mitigation needs, and gyms can usually customize the coverages in their individual policy to suit their particular situation.
Most gyms, fitness clubs, sports complexes and similar businesses in Vermont can benefit from the protections that fitness club insurance provides. Thousands of people are injured during physical activity each day, and liability lawsuits arising from injuries are just one potential risk that these businesses face. Not having coverage can be financially devastating if a business is named in a liability suit or faces another major disaster without any policy in place.
As mentioned, fitness club insurance policies normally make multiple coverages available, and those coverages can include both liability and property protections.
Some of the more commonly chosen liability coverages that gyms get include:

Our business was with the same trusted agent for over 20 years. Mike Bancroft offered to evaluate our policies and see if he could save us some money on both Workmen's Comp and general liability. He did, and in the process even moved us to better coverage. Mike also offers a superb quality of service. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Mike Bancroft has been great to work with. He has assisted with my Business Auto, Tool Coverage, Homeowners and all other types of insurance needs. I wouldn't be surprised if they change their name to Paige, Campbell & Bancroft soon!
Extremely prompt, personable, and professional service! Despite only needing a workers' comp policy for one employee, Paige & Campbell was very receptive and ensured to shop my policy around to ensure I received a great price that was almost half of what another broker quoted me.
Most gyms have paid employees and therefore, need workers compensation coverage. This coverage insures against job-related injuries and illnesses that employees might sustain, and it’s generally required by state law if a business has employees.
Whether workers compensation is purchased through a fitness club policy or as a separate entity, however, depends on the situation and policies available. The coverage may be added to other protections in some situations, while other situations call for getting it via a stand-alone policy that’s separate.
Gyms that offer high-risk sports, such as rock climbing or parkour, should speak with an insurance agent who specializes in fitness club insurance. A specialized agent will be familiar with what risks various sports present and know how to best insure against those risks.
Gyms that sponsor contact sports leagues likewise should speak with a specialized agent who’s familiar with these policies. An agent who can review a gym’s particular situation can provide the best advice regarding policy and coverage selection. They’ll know what type of policy to look for if contact sports are a consideration.

Mike Bancroft is simply an amazing agent. When my business got burglarized, I was so upset and didn't know what to do. I contacted Mike and he was very prompt in calling me back and he put my mind at ease. He made me feel so much better and handled all of the paperwork immediately. His customer service is top notch and I highly recommend him to be your insurance agent!
