IS IT mandatory to have insurance?

is it mandatory to have personal trainer insurance and how much?
Why is insurance NEEDED?
I am about to start my own PT business. I am certified, I have flyers, business cards, etc. ready to go. In my arsinal of introductory paperwork I have the trainee liability form, which I will obviously be having filled out by everyone I train. With that being said, why doesn't this form absolve a trainer from needing the insurance, as the trainee is signing a liability WAIVER?
I'm not opposed to the insurance, and I'm not trying to skip a step in the process,I would just like to know why it's necessary even with a signed liability form. Starting out, most of us don't have the funds, so knowing where/why all funds are being allocated just seems smart..... Thank you for any help/tips/info ya'll can give!
no liability insurance and starting to work with clients as an unqualified personal trainer
I am currently training to be a certified personal fitness trainer and am starting some fitness sessions with a group of 3.
I will ask them to complete a par-q form to assess if they are fit for exercise but i do not hold any liability insurance at present or a cpr certificate.
I have made the clients aware of this stating that any exercise they participate in will be at their own risk. However i cam considering asking the clients to sign something to cover myself? Is there a form i can use with them to ensure i am not liable for any injury or accident?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Training a friend in a public park, first and only client so far
(Los Angeles, CA)
I am the proud new owner of an NSCA certificate and CPR/AED certification. I'm close to getting a job at a big-box gym just to gain valuable experience, but I have a friend who would like me to train them. I don't want to ask them to pay for a membership AND my services at the gym I'm going to work at in the future, and I already looked into one-on-one training at a public park in Los Angeles (according to the park ranger, there's nothing they can really do about it), so that's all good.
I was wondering what kind of insurance, if any, I would need for this sort of operation. I have one other friend who expressed interest, but seeing as I still need experience and will (hopefully) have a full-time job soon, this operation isn't going to go beyond that for quite a while.

Does a Personal Trainer Legally Have to Have Insurance?
I recently started working out with a personal trainer in Texas and he let it slip out that he does not have liability insurance. Is he required to have this in order to be a personal trainer?
