Are you seeing great results after working with a personal trainer? Thank them. Let them know that their program, encouragement, or motivation worked for you!
In your note or thank-you message, you can detail the results that you have experienced. Your thank you note may read like a testimonial. They may share it with others (hopefully, with your permission) on their website.
In this guide, you will learn how to thank your trainer for your results.
Many examples will be provided. You can also thank them for their time or the program if it is self-guided. There are examples thank you messages for appreciation for your trainer during any time of the year, and also a section for a Christmas message to a personal trainer.
Sharing words of appreciation with your fitness trainer is an awesome way to acknowledge how you’ve benefited from their expertise. Also, Personal Trainer Awareness Day is on January 2nd, if you want to mention them to others on that day!
Delivering the Thank You Note
The best way to give your personal trainer a handwritten thank you note is to hand the card to them in person when you work out with them at a physical location.
It’s not good etiquette, and it could be against the facility’s rules, to ask the trainer or coach for their home mailing address. Or if you have their email address (perhaps from their business card), you can send them a thank you email.
If you are in an online program, you probably already have an email address for them. So you can email the trainer a thank you email.

Thanks for posting this! As a personal trainer, i LOVE getting thank-you notes and other positive encouragement from my clients. Too often they seem to forget about me the moment they walk out of the gym. :(
As a personal trainer, testimonials are lifeblood of our business, but a hand written know comes from the heart.
When I get a note from a client, it does make it all worth it. As a personal trainer helping people is why I started this profession and hearing how you made a difference in their lives really does put a smile on your face. Thanks for posting this.
thanks for the information
