Enjoy total peace of mind - be protected with specialist insurance that includes public liability (£10 million) and personal accident cover. You will also have the support of numerous helplines providing legal and tax advice, risk guidance and counselling when you need it.
Being a health and fitness professional carries that small but nagging risk of injury befalling a customer. As professionals we do our best to minimise this risk but it is also a comfort to know we are well covered should the worst-case scenario materialise. This is one of the reasons our insurance offers £10 million public liability cover. As distressing as it is, imagine the costs involved should an accident happen and one of your customers were unable to walk again. We hope this never happens to you but our insurance provides peace of mind to know you are in the best position.
We work hard with our insurers to make absolutely certain the REPs insurance offers the very best cover. Other policies have lower levels of cover, and restrictions on the covering of fairly standard activities such as Olympic Lifting, Bootcamps and even tyre flipping.
Please be confident our policy covers you for all the health fitness activities that you are delivering where you have completed a REPs recognised piece of training, endorsed through PD:Approval, our independent quality assurance provider, as long as your certificate of achievement shows that the programme was endorsed at the time you completed it. If training is not endorsed or the training was undertaken before or after it has been endorsed by PD:Approval it is not covered. Please check with your training provider or PD:Approval if you are unsure.
All members of the Register at levels 2, 3 and 4 are required to hold adequate civil liability insurance which covers your legal liability for death, injury or illness to others and loss of, or damage to, third party property. Validation is confirmed at the time of first registration and then at every annual re-registration.
Insurance through REPs is only available to REPs members. To join REPs please follow this link.

If you would like to add it during your membership contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 033 0004 0004
