Why do I need this bond?
Health club bonds act as a security deposit to ensure that patrons of the health club will be refunded if the club closes prematurely due to bankruptcy. These bonds also protect consumers if the principal (health club owner/operator) breaches the terms of a health club contract or the requirements for health club contracts as specified by §3 of the Health Club Act.
