Adam Paris
Owner, Chicagoland Fitness & Orangetheory Fitness
We have had a fantastic experience since switching to Players Health for our business insurance needs. They were able to save us $2500 per studio annually! Just as importantly, they didn’t miss a beat on the service side either. When a fire caused damage to one of our studios, Players Health was instrumental in navigating the insurance claims process to make sure we were taken care of and the costs of getting our studio repaired and restored were covered.
