Next Insurance Partners with National Academy of Sports Medicine and Athletics and Fitness Association of America to Offer Tailored Coverage for Personal Trainers


Partnership with Top Fitness Certification Providers to Offer Simple and Affordable Professional and General Liability Insurance Policies

PALO ALTO, California, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Insurance, the leading digital insurance company for small businesses, and both the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), world leaders in fitness education and certification solutions, are proud to announce a partnership to offer tailored, digital, insurance policies to NASM and AFAA certified professionals directly through their websites. The partnership indicates the appeal of fully digital small business insurance that is simple, affordable, tailored to specific classes of business and accessible 24/7.

Today's small business insurance landscape generally consists of blanket policies that do not consider specific business requirements. Next Insurance uses deep industry knowledge to tailor insurance policies for personal trainers as well as other professionals. The insurance policies for personal trainers offer both General and Professional Liability coverage, as well as an optional add-on which covers supplement/nutrition advice. The policies offer wide coverage including insuring trainers for work performed throughout the US, as well as coverage for online training, training in public parks, and more.

The Next Insurance offering to NASM/AFAA certified professionals includes:

  • Fully online process, complete in a matter of minutes
  • Monthly payment option available at no additional cost
  • Ability to add unlimited "Additional Insured" (e.g. the gym, client's home, park, etc.)
  • Ease of downloading of Certificate of Insurance as needed
  • Policies from $11 per month

"We are excited to be partnering with these leading fitness education organizations," said Guy Goldstein, CEO of Next Insurance. "World-renowned for their specialized certification programs, NASM and AFAA certified professionals can now access simple and affordable insurance, tailored for them. Personal trainers and group fitness instructors can push forward knowing that our insurance policies are endorsed by industry experts they trust."

Laurie McCartney, President of Global Fitness & Wellness Solutions for Ascend Learning adds "We're proud to partner with Next Insurance as they provide real value to our trainers, who will now be able to buy a policy online in minutes, then get back to doing what they love with total peace of mind."
