Top gift picks for your personal trainer 2019
What do you buy for someone who pushes you to your limit? Depending on how well you know your trainer, finding a gift can be tricky. If you haven’t been working with this personal trainer for long, you might err on the safe side and gift something small like a water bottle filled with stocking stuffers. But if your trainer has been helping you for years, you probably know more about their likes, interests and hobbies outside of the gym.

How to pick the best Christmas gift for your personal trainer
The gift you select for your personal trainer will depend on how well and how long you’ve known them, their age and their interests outside of training.
If you’re looking for a small, simple gift to extend a kind gesture during the holidays, try something like:
- Stainless steel water bottle
- Duffel bag
- Fitness cookbook
- Dried fruit and nut mix
- Gift card
If you’re going for something a little more personalized, how about:
- Favorite protein powder
- Athletic apparel
- Training equipment
- Outdoor apparel or hiking gear
- Something related to their favorite hobby other than working out
What can I get a personal trainer who has everything?
It might seem like getting your personal trainer something fitness related would be easy, but you might quickly find out that he or she already has every health and fitness gadget under the sun. If so, you might opt for an “experience” gift, like a gift card to a local health foods store or restaurant or tickets to see their favorite play or band.
