Why do gyms and fitness centers need business insurance?

Fitness studios and gyms face high risks when clients push their physical limits. If a customer suffers a weight-lifting injury, or slips on a treadmill, you could face a lawsuit. Business insurance can cover legal costs and medical bills, and helps you fulfill the requirements of state laws and leases.
