How much does a health studio bond cost in California?
The California Secretary of State requires that health studios post surety bonds in varying amounts prior to offering services. The required bond amount varies according to how much business the health studio receives. Applicants should verify their required bond amount with the state prior to bonding.
Since the bond amount requirement varies, the price you’ll pay varies as well. A review of your personal credit report will impact the price you pay for your California surety bond. Ready to begin the bonding process? Call 1 (800) 308-4358 or click here to receive your free surety bond quote!

Why do I need this bond?
California health studio bonds hold the principal (studio) responsible in the event that the principal breaches the rules and regulations for health studios outlined in Title 2.5 (beginning with Section 1812.80), Part 4 of Division 3 of the Cirvil Code of California. The provisions strictly prohibit studios from doing the following:
- enlisting contracts worth more than $4,400
- enlisting contracts in excess of 3 years
- requiring payments past the term of the contract
- failing to disclose the length of the contract in 14-pt type
- failing to include a cancellation clause in the contract
If the principal fails to conduct business ethically and lawfully, the bond protects individuals or groups of individuals that are harmed as a result of the principal’s actions. The surety will compensate harmed parties up to the full penal sum of the bond, and the principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
