A health club bond is a type of surety bond required by health clubs that wish to collect fees from members upfront. This type of surety bond is a financial guarantee in the case that the health club closes unexpectedly, ensuring all prepaid members would be reimbursed. Many states require health clubs to obtain a health club bond before being legally licensed to open.
The cost of health club bonds varies based on state regulations. Some states may require different bond amounts depending on prepaid membership terms. Some health clubs may offer 12-month memberships paid in advance, 12-24 month memberships, or even up to 36- month prepaid memberships. Depending on the type of prepaid memberships your health club plans to offer and specific state requirements your total bond cost could range anywhere from $50,000 to $150,000. Health club owners will not be required to pay for the entire bond cost, rather just the bond premium which is usually between 1-4% depending on the owner’s credit and financial history.

The obligee is the state or local government that requires the bond and the surety is the agency responsible for underwriting the bond and providing the guarantee.
