For those of you who sub-lease space from another gym, studio, etc.,…

I found a lot of posts about sub-leasing but couldn’t find anything about the following specifics:

How does insurance work? Do you insure yourself or do you fall under the insurance of the facility you’re sub-leasing from?

Do you have to have any other (professional) certifications in addition to CF certs to gain insurance? Do you have to have any certifications at all? Does it vary by state? I’ll be in FL.

Do you have to form an LLC or something similar? What licenses do you typically need and is there a difference if you’re sub-leasing vs. leasing your own facility?

How much does it matter if you get your CF certs after you affiliate? Is it harder to get a sub-lease without any certs in hand (CF or otherwise)?

Any other advice / tips about sub-leasing would be greatly appreciated.
