Insurance Policy Changes for 2019-2020

Due to changes in our insurance cover the following changes are required to be implemented at CrossFit Mallow.

Age Limit of 18 years of age.

Only adults aged 18 or over are permitted to train at CrossFit Mallow. Unfortunately this means there will be no CrossFit kids programme for the next 12 months. Teenagers are also not permitted to train at the gym. Kids are also not allowed to set foot in or remain at the gym while parents workout as they are no longer covered by public liability insurance. I apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but when it comes to insurance the letter of the law must be followed.

‘Drop - Ins’

CrossFit Mallow is now insured as a members only facility therefore with immediate effect  ‘drop ins’ are no longer insured. Friends, relatives, tourists etc that are visiting can no longer train at the gym.

It is a requirement that all people that train at the gym are fulltime adult members that have completed a screening form, foundations course and are registered on the Glofox CrossFit Mallow App/Website.


Personal Training Clients.

Personal training clients are required to fill out a screening form and register as fulltime gym members. This is in addition to their personal training fees. The maximum number allowed in a PT session is two clients.


Insurance has unfortunately become a major issue in the leisure and fitness industry in Ireland over the past year. Many business have been forced to shut their doors due to the rising costs and increased clauses in policies.

I apologies for any inconvenience these new measures may cause any of the members of CrossFit Mallow but it’s an issue totally out of our control. Until such time as the compensation culture in Ireland is addressed and changes are made in legislature governing insurance there is not much that we can do about it other than follow the rules imposed.

Thank you for your co-operation.
