Ken Reinig, speaker and health club insurance expert, turns his attention to the potential liability claims that could hurt club owners as members and trainers get lured by the fresh air and sunshine of summer to host events and exercise and train in the great outdoors.
Lakewood, Co: July 15, 2016– Ken Reinig, well-known risk management specialist, posted a new blog on his website entitled “Do You Know Your Club’s Liability During Off Site Training or Special Events?” Mr. Reinig understands the allure of training out in the fresh air. He also knows the potential liability dangers.
Reinig says, “It’s summer time and the great outdoors is calling to your trainers and members alike.” He continues, “Everyone enjoys spending time exercising and training outside and health clubs break out of their indoor routines as soon as the weather permits. Many clubs host yoga and fitness classes out of doors as well as running and walking clinics and events. As a club owner, however, you might want to review your insurance coverage, keeping in mind that outdoor events can increase your exposure to liability claims.”
Reinig advises, “You may need to contact your agent to add specific overrides before the club or any of your team members start promoting and offering offsite activities or events.” According to Reinig, “You’ll want to make sure you’re covered in case one of your members is injured while participating in a gym or club sponsored offsite event.”
