Ottawa Fitness Insurance

According to the International Health, Racquet and Sports Club Association (IHRSA), your industry has experienced continuous growth over the last twenty years. One reason for this is the media; the fitness business is the beneficiary of a remarkable amount of free promotion every year. This is because the benefits of regular exercise are constantly touted in print, on TV, and on the internet.

More recently, two other factors have impacted your business:

  • Corporate involvement – 31% of Canada’s larger corporations subsidize employee health club memberships, according to IHRSA.
  • Health insurance involvement – An increasing number of health insurance plans reward their members for participating in regular exercise programs.

All of this exposure means you’re probably seeing new members representing non-traditional markets such as seniors, children and sedentary people coming into your club. They want a facility that is safe for exercise. That’s where insurance comes in.

Your organization is exposed to unique risks and you need health & fitness business insurance that can cover you on all fronts.
