Hi Chris,

What type of insurance are you after - property, public liabilty, personal?

What equipment are you after?

Cheers

Ham

Hi Richard,

From what I've gathered so far I'll be needing public liability and professional indemnity - the fitness facility specific ones in other words.

Equipment wise - just the basics: Barbells, dumbells, and some CV equipment (probably just a C2 rower). I was wondering if you went to any suppliers who do trade prices really or whether you stick to commercial suppliers.

Cheers,

Chris

For cheap kettlebells try this. I havent personally bought any yet but a couple of people on here have and I am sure they will let you know of the quality

Chris,

Forgive me for sounding silly but why do you need prof indemnity (what cover will it offer you that you cant get from pub liability)?

Equipment, I have made a contact that potentially has 6 ( I am after at least 1 maybe 2) used c2 rowers for sale but I am waiting to hear from him and get the ok - I will keep you posted if anything comes of it if your interested.

Climbing rope I have just got from http://stores.ebay.co.uk/UK-YACHT-RI...D-SUPPLIES-LTD

made to order - seem very helpful and delivered in under 24hours - cant be bad :-)

I have no specific contacts for weights and plates etc but am looking so if I find anything then I will let you know

I was under the impression that if you were instructing clients, then you would need professional indemnity. I may well be very wrong. Insurance aint my strong point!

Definately keep me posted on the C2 rowers. You're welcome to email me - the address is on my profile.

Thanks.

Chris,
The insurance I carry, covers me for client injuries through direct training or advice given and sports rehab for up to 2m and cost me 100 per annum - as a sole trader thats all I need apart from building/contents insurance

Go to www.exerciseregister.org for more info on the insurance

Hope it helps

Richard
