Florida Health Studio Bond

How much does a health club bond in Florida cost?

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services requires health studios to post surety bonds in either $25,000 or $50,000 to legally operate within the state. The state ultimately determines the amount of bond coverage required, so applicants should verify their required bond amount prior to bonding.

These bonds are subject to underwriting, which means the amount you’ll pay depends on a review of your personal credit report. Because the amount of coverage and price can vary so much, we recommend submitting a bond request to connect with an expert surety specialist who will provide you with a free, no-obligation surety bond quote.

Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Florida health studio bond, the principal (health studio) pledges to abide by all rules, laws and regulations stated in section 501.012 through 501.019 of the Florida Statutes, which is also referred to as the Florida Health Studio Act. Specifically, the bond ensures that the principal provides all services as contracted and reimburses members for any contracted services not delivered.

If the health studio violates any of these terms, a claim can be filed against the bond to protect club members from financial loss up to the full bond amount. The studio must then reimburse the surety for damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Health club studio surety bonds in Florida remain continuous until canceled. The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice of cancellation to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The notice must contain the full name, city and state where the principal is located, as well as the agency code number assigned to the principal by the department. Cancellation becomes effective 30 days after the department receives the notice.

If a health studio collects fees more than 30 days in advance or has a third party collecting the fees, the owner of the health studio must be bonded for a period of 5 years.
