Why do fitness instructors need insurance coverage?

Your goal is to improve your clients’ health, but exercise can also cause injuries. Business insurance helps cover expenses when someone claims your training caused an injury. It provides peace of mind and covers theft of exercise equipment, muscle strains, and other risks of personal training.
