Gifts for Personal Trainers

Updated on November 13, 2013

Top Gift Ideas for Personal Trainers

If you're searching for the the best gifts for personal trainers, look no further. Here are the perfect Christmas, birthday, and "just because" gifts for your favorite fitness instructor.

We love our personal trainers. They help us to succeed by pushing us beyond the point we would normally push ourselves. The knowledge and training they provide have helped us live healthier lives. They watch us sweat and strain, and listen to us grunt, groan and whine. It doesn't get much more personal than that!

To show our gratitude for their hard work and dedication to our goals, we want to give them fitness-related gifts that are both thoughtful and useful. There's something here for every type of trainer. No matter your budget, these gifts for a personal trainer are a great way to show your appreciation.

Workout and Exercise CDs and DVDs - Cardio, Dance and Exercise

Sometimes, even professional trainers need a little assistance with staying in tip top shape. Upbeat music can make a cardio workout more enjoyable and beneficial. These CDs and DVDs are designed to do just that. Instructors can use them personally or to help teach an exercise or Zumba class.

Selecting the Best Equipment for Personal Trainers

Functional Style on the Go

Best Gym and Locker Bags

Personal trainers often spend a lot of time traveling back and forth between the gym and home. Many of them offer private instruction at a client's home or group training in various locations. A good gym bag with lots of room for their gear and personal effects. These are some of the highest rated fitness bags.

UA Locker Duffel Bags by Under Armour

Live Well 360 Luxx Fitness Bag

OGIO Locker Bag

Stay Plugged in While Working Out

Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

This is by far one of the most popular headsets to work out in. The band just wraps around your neck and the earphones are magnetic so when not in use, they just snap easily onto the band. No clumsy wires to get tangled in while exercising or running. And the price is set to sell.

Mix it Up with a Personal Blender

Tribest Personal Blender, Compact Package (PB-100)

Great for busy fitness trainers on the go. This compact blender includes 2 large "blend-n-serve" cups and lids. Easily blends and grinds your favorite foods.

Client Database Management App

The Training Notebook (or T-Notebook for short) is an excellent app that helps trainers and instructors manage their client database. Go ahead, check it out!

Glad you could stop in. Feel free to ask questions, leave comments or just say hello!

Let me know you were here!
