What is the purpose of a Florida Health Studio Bond?
The Florida Health Studio Bond is required for all health studios that collect fees more than 30 days in advance and has a third party collecting the fees. The health studio will have to get a surety bond that is good for a period of five years.
This surety bond provides financial protection to members of a health club that closes unexpectedly, compensating members who had purchased long-term contracts. The required bond amount is set at $25,000, and it is required by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. This premium on this bond is generally as low as 1%.
