In-Person Workshop: September 15, 2022 in Omaha, NE
LAW for FITNESS/WELLNESS DIRECTORS and MANAGERS/OWNERS
Protect Yourself, Your Business, and Your Clients!
As a fitness/wellness director or manager/owner, do you know that:
1) Numerous exercise-related injuries and subsequent negligence lawsuits are filed against fitness facilities and programs every year.
2) Given our litigious society, injured parties do not hesitate to file a lawsuit. Lawsuits are time consuming, stressful, and costly with some verdicts in the millions of dollars.
3) Injuries and litigation can be prevented through learning the law and effective risk management strategies.
