We have recently obtained a new building with various rooms and ample space. The building will be used as a senior center. When it comes to renting or providing space for independent fitness trainers to provide services to their clients, who is responsible/liable if something were to happen? Does the trainer need to provide their own liability insurance? If there are other aspects that we must keep in mind as landlords please let me know, I would like to offer these spaces to people looking to start their fitness services, they might even get some clients from those attending the center.
as Natalie said, an independent trainer must have his own professional liability insurance with your location listed.
However, I would suggest that you also check with your insurance about liability from the moment the person sets foot into the building to walk to the space the trainer is renting. This may already be covered since you plan to use it as a senior center. I would also check with the city to check whether you have any obligations to check for compliance with business licenses and things like that.
