Ken Reinig, speaker and health club insurance expert, reviews solutions and methods that can be implemented to ensure a safe workout environment for 24/7 key clubs even when no one is around.
Lakewood, Co: April 18, 2016– Ken Reinig, well-known risk management specialist, posted a new blog on his website entitled “So You Want to Open a 24/7 Key Club.” Outlining why most yoga teachers don’t carry insurance, Mr. Reinig elaborates on the importance of coverage.
According to Reinig, “24/7 key clubs appeal to a certain type of person. Those whose work does not allow them to workout during normal club business hours as well as those people who prefer to work out on their own are particularly attracted to 24/7 key clubs.” He continues adding, “These kinds of people are naturally more risk tolerant for starters. As you can probably imagine though, a fitness facility that allows its members to workout anytime they choose poses a unique set of problems during those hours when there is no staff on duty.”
Reinig states, “The insurance industry has struggled with this perceived increase in liability exposure and most insurance companies today will still not offer protection for these types of clubs.” “However,” says Reinig,”the good news is that there are solutions and there are methods that can be implemented to ensure a safe workout environment even when no one is around.”
As Reinig emphasizes, “The first step is to inform the potential member that they will be joining a facility that may not have staff on duty during the hours that they choose to work out.”
