    It’s Smart to Have Good Insurance

    Whether you’re training professional athletes, consulting people on a healthier lifestyle, or offering tips to your kid’s soccer coach, your certification and skills place your service in high demand which also comes with legal risk. Accidents simply happen. Regardless of training environment, any number of day-to-day factors can pose a risk, even if managed and mitigated with great attention. Don’t risk your career and your professional reputation.
