What kind of insurance is best for Pilates instructors?
If you own a Pilates studio or similar business, you can be sued – even if you have done nothing wrong. Your best solution is to protect yourself with liability insurance.
The exact coverage that is best for you depends on the details of your business. Many Hiscox customers seek to optimize their coverage by choosing both professional liability and general liability policies. To assure that you get the best coverage for your Pilates business, see the examples below.
Professional liability insurance, sometimes called errors and omissions insurance (E&O insurance), is insurance coverage for claims against businesses that provide professional and personal services – for businesses like yours. When is it important to have professional liability insurance? Examples include:
- Dissatisfied client: A Pilates studio owner provides private instruction to a busy business executive. The executive is dissatisfied with the progress he is making and requests more frequent training sessions. Soon afterwards the executive starts to experience severe back pain and makes a claim against the studio. Professional liability insurance, sometimes called errors and omissions insurance, could protect you if such a claim is made.
- Liability for medical costs: A regular Pilates client starts to experience severe back pain and makes a claim against the studio for negligently instructing her. Professional liability protects Pilates instructors and studio owners against such claims and will appoint an attorney to defend them, if necessary, even if they haven’t made a mistake.

General liability insurance, sometimes called Commercial General Liability (CGL), could protect your business from another person or business’s claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, and damage to property. Having this kind of coverage is beneficial in several instances:
- Bodily injury: While adjusting her machine in the Pilates studio, a student slips, falls and injures herself and by hitting her head against the Pilates Reformer machine. General liability insurance could protect the instructor against such claims made by another person.
- Slander: A new Pilates instructor made disparaging and untrue remarks about a client. Another client overheard and the conversation got back to the client, who sued the spa for slander. General liability insurance could protect Pilates studio owners against third-party claims of slander, property damage, bodily injury and associated medical costs.
- Property damage: A Pilates instructor is visiting a client’s home for a private session and accidentally knocks over a laptop, breaking it. General liability insurance could protect Pilates studio owners against third-party claims of property, bodily injury and related medical costs.
