With over seven million people in the UK members of a gym or fitness club, it’s never been more popular to work out. Gym instructors have an important role at any gym, hosting fitness classes which could be for all fitness levels from beginners to more advanced. It’s important that gym instructors are not only qualified but experienced, as they will usually need to manage a group of people attending a class – this could include everything from handing out medical history questionnaires to supervising people using equipment and ensuring that equipment is properly maintained.

Improper supervision of a class or failing to show individuals how to use equipment such as exercise bikes, dumbbells or exercise balls correctly could lead to injuries, and a gym instructor could be held liable if there is evidence that they were negligent. If you have been injured by a negligent gym instructor, the good news is that you could be eligible to claim compensation.

Claiming compensation for personal injuries sustained at the gym

Whilst accidents can happen at the gym, there is a difference between an accident which is nobody’s fault, and one which has been caused by somebody else’s negligence. In exercise classes of any kind, from dance and Pilates to kettlebells and spinning classes, there will be a qualified, experienced gym instructor on hand to supervise the class and make sure people are carrying out exercises properly. Warming up and winding down are essential parts of any class, to avoid injury, and you should always be shown how to use equipment properly. If you become injured due to inadequate supervision or using equipment which isn’t suitable for your level of ability, your gym instructor may be held liable if there is evidence to prove they have been negligent.
