Health clubs operating in Virginia are regulated by the Virginia Health Club Act.
The Commonwealth’s Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs (OCRP) enforces the Act.
Virginia health clubs are required to furnish a surety bond amount which corresponds to the number of active contracts.
The Virginia health club bond ranges from $10,000 to $100,000; there is also a $300,000 surety bond.
Under Schedule A the OCRP provides you with a way to calculate the amount of bond required.
The bond amount is based on the number of unexpired/active contracts. The breakdown is as follows:
0 to 250: $10,000 surety bond;
251 to 500: $20,000 surety bond;
501 to 750: $30,000 surety bond;
751 to 1000: $40,000 surety bond;
1001 to 1250: $50,000 surety bond;
1251 to 1500: $60,000 surety bond;
1501 to 1750: $70,000 surety bond;
1751 to 2000: $80,000 surety bond;
There is no $90,000 Virginia health club surety bond;
2001 or more $100,000 surety bond
These surety bond amounts are for each location of your Virginia health club facility.
An exception to the above surety bond amount is the following:
If your health club company posts a single $300,000 health club surety bond, then the bond is applicable to all facilities owned by the same health club.
