While you’re required to carry CrossFit affiliate insurance, you want to enjoy real benefits from it. Other than meeting your contractual obligations this insurance offers real benefits for you and your gym. These benefits include:

Fulfills Your Obligations

If your gym is in the United States, there are federal, state, and locals laws that require you to maintain a certain amount of insurance as a business owner. This is to protect you, your staff, and the members of your gym.

Since you’re licensed as a CrossFit gym, you also have an obligation to the CrossFit organization to maintain an affiliate insurance policy. It’s essential that you complete your contractual obligations, so you can keep your affiliation.

Help When You Need It

If you’re served with a lawsuit, it can feel disorientating. With liability coverage, the insurance company provides you with an attorney to represent you, your business, and your policy.

The insurance will take over negations for a settlement or send a lawyer to represent you in court. They want the situation handled as fairly and inexpensively as possible.

Protection for Your Investment and Cash Reserves

Accidents happen in seconds, but you can spend years fighting a lawsuit or paying off a judgment against your business. In some cases, the claimant might even come after your personal assets.

CrossFit affiliate insurance offers you a safety net when the worst happens. The liability insurance will absorb judgments and settlements, so your business remains intact and your cash reserves stay in reserve.
