recomp personal trainer insurance

insurance trainers need

Recomp insurance covers coaching both the general public and athletes, with heavy weight training, bodybuilding, powerlifting and even prescribing the sports nutrition essential to body recomposition. It is the coverage that most Personal Trainers do not realise they do not have!

Personal Trainers insured with Guild or Marsh insurance (or others) are not covered for coaching clients in intense weight training, bodybuilding or powerlifting, nor writing diets or providing sports nutrition advice. AusActive has defined these practices (and all sports coaching) as outside of the Fitness Professional’s Scope of Practice.

It is appropriate that fitness insurance does not cover body recomposition training because fitness is a health service for sick people; not a service for healthy people to develop athletic bodies or capabilities.

Recomp is the relevant registration body for PT’s and Strength Coaches to insure through to provide the training and nutrition to successfully manipulate body composition. Recomp registration replaces AusActive registration and dispenses with the need for CEC points forever.

nutrition insurance

The Recomp Insurance also covers prescribing bodybuilding diets. All Personal Trainers with Certificate 4 in Fitness are eligible and no other formal nutrition qualifications are required. It’s another critical capability for body recomposition that is unavailable to Personal Trainers in the fitness industry.

not for everyone

Recomp Insurance is for Coaches who specialise in body recomposition weight training and diet exclusively. It is not for aerobics, CrossFit, sports coaching, rehabilitation or any other fitness activity. The nutrition coverage only applies to intelligent sports nutrition plans designed to achieve measured and documented body composition change. It does not cover diets intended to treat metabolic illness or irresponsible malnourishment (eg sub-1000 calorie diets) for wholesale weight loss.

Make sure to read our Scope of Practice to understand the inclusions and exclusions.
