Ken Reinig, speaker and health club insurance expert, encourages health and fitness club owners to review their insurance policies in light of new trends taking root in the industry to make sure they are not subject to liability claims.
Lakewood, Co: January 16, 2017– Ken Reinig, well-known risk management specialist, posted a new blog on his website entitled “Play It Safer,” in which Mr. Reinig encourages health club owners to be aware of safety protocols as new trends become mainstream.
Reinig launches into his blog saying, “Here we go again on another 365-day spin around the sun! We’re just about halfway through the first month and your club is probably busting at the seams with new members and old alike launching into their New Year’s Resolutions to trim down, beef up, get flexible, and hopefully not give up before the first month of the year is over.” He continues adding, “This is a great time for you club owners to review new trends that might be taking root in the health and fitness club industry and make sure your safety protocols and insurance coverage will protect you as these new trends become mainstream.”
According to Reinig, “The trend of one-on-one personal training is shifting to group personal training sessions. As more people look for ways to socialize and do things together, working out as a group is becoming popular. And many of these group-training sessions are taking place out of doors.” He adds, “If you employ trainers and they are making this shift, you’ll want to make sure your liability insurance includes coverage for incidents that occur during off-premise training sessions.”
