What does Sports/Fitness Instructors Insurance cover?

Professional Indemnity Insurance: If you give professional coaching advice, clients can hold you liable if that advice causes them to suffer injuries. A Professional Indemnity policy that’s designed for sports/fitness instructors is essential to cover your liability exposure.
Public Liability Insurance: If you accidentally injure third-parties (e.g. members of the public, other gym attendees) during your sports/fitness coaching sessions, you can be held liable for that injury. Public Liability Insurance covers you for legal costs like settlements/damages, and lawyer’s fees.
Work Injury Compensation Insurance (WICA Insurance): WICA Insurance is required by MOM for all manual workers, and all workers who earn below $2,600/month. Manual workers would include sports and fitness coaches. Under WICA legislation, employers are liable to pay for work-related medical expenses, and lost wages while on medical leave. WICA Insurance will cover these costs. Given the high cost of healthcare of Singapore, WICA Insurance is critical for sports/fitness companies.
Commercial Vehicle Insurance: Some sports/fitness instructors will have a commercial vehicle (e.g. a van) to transport their fitness equipment. Commercial vehicle insurance would cover damage to your automobile, and also cover liability to third-parties on the road.
What are the major risks sports/fitness instructors face?
Sports instructor liability: Being sued by clients for injuries as a result of your sports coaching. Such lawsuits can easily cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars, and could lead to bankruptcy if not properly insured against.
