Anyone out there have experience in this subject? Currently shopping around for insurance for a commercial property that Im buying.

Should I even mention that theres MMA or Boxing classes being conducted, and just use the umbrella term of "fitness facility" or "martial arts school".

Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

 I don't do insurance but I did write a lease for a jiu jitsu school last year.

Are you using an insurance broker?  Make sure that the policy covers the type of claim you might be subject to.  Put another way, don't sign a policy tailored for a fitness gym that would not cover a claim for bodily harm caused by a staff member (who might just be an instructor sparring in your case) and things like that.

Where are you contemplating opening a gym (if that's not confidential)

Not using a broker...yet. Yeah, I hear what your saying about the fitness angle.

Opening in Pennsylvania.
