Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, 2012/06/11 - With the increasing popularity of CrossFit, Lackner McLennan Insurance has an industry specific program. Joanne LeGal, Account Executive, has become a CrossFit enthusiast herself giving personal insight into the insurance needs of her clients.
CrossFit, a unique body strengthening and conditioning system is rapidly growing in popularity. Also growing in popularity is the customized insurance program offered by Lackner McLennan Insurance (LMI) to meet this demand. In fact, LMI reports a growth rate over last year of higher than fifty percent in policies requested and written specifically for the CrossFit industry.
Ask Joanne LeGal, the motivator behind the development of LMI’s CrossFit insurance program, how her interest in CrossFit began and why she is now so passionate about it, she smiles and says,“In 2008 I wrote my first policy for an individual CrossFit Trainer. As so often happens, he started to refer other CrossFitters to me. Curiosity got the better of me and I wanted to see what it was all about so I signed up for a month of classes.” That was in 2009. Since then not only has LeGal become a devoted CrossFitter herself but her husband is now just as committed to the sport.
The advantage to clients of LMI’s insurance program is that while although many elements of the program are common to all CrossFit affiliates, it can be customized to meet individual needs. The policies they offer cover not only individuals, but studios, trustees, employees, teachers, sub-contractors and volunteers.
“Our policies really do encompass all aspects of the CrossFit world.” explains LeGal,“and furthermore, professional and commercial general liability as well as equipment coverage are all done under one policy so there’s no need to go here and there. It’s all taken care of.”
LeGal is just as passionate about her clients as she is about CrossFit itself. “It’s a great combination. I get to meet, work and workout with terrific people and we all share the same passion. I couldn’t ask for anything better!”
