33 Inspiring Thank You Messages For Your Personal Trainer

Expressing gratitude to your trainer is kind and thoughtful. A thank you message is great for letting them know you are happy with your results. 

Sharing words of appreciation with your fitness trainer is a fantastic way to acknowledge how you’ve benefited from their expertise.

In your note or thank-you message, you can include the results you have experienced.  The best compliment for the trainer at your gym is letting them know about your success because of their work with you.

Many examples will be provided. You can also thank them for their time or the program if it is self-guided. There are examples of thank you messages for appreciation for your trainer during any time of the year and a section for a Christmas message to a personal trainer.

 Also, Personal Trainer Awareness Day is on January 2nd, if you want to mention them to others on that day!

Delivering the Thank You Message

You can write your trainer a handwritten thank you note, email, or text message. 

If you choose a handwritten thank you card, you can hand it to them at a training session. Asking for their home address could be against the facility’s rules.

Their email address is probably on their business card or website. If you have your trainer’s phone number, you could also text them.
