    1 / 11 You may not enjoy getting your butt kicked every time you hit the gym, but your trainer can definitely be considered a teacher with all the advice and wisdom he or she dispenses.

    Do you ever get the feeling of dread before you step into the gym to see your personal trainer because you know you’re gonna get tortured? Doesn’t it feel the same as dreading school because of the homework you’re gonna get?

    Personal trainers are a lot like teachers if you think about it – they teach you how to move right, eat right, sleep right, and train right. Without this knowledge and guidance, maybe you wouldn’t have made the changes in your health and physique that you’ve achieved so far. So what better way to thank your trainer than by showing them your appreciation on Teacher’s Day?

    Get something nice for your trainer or coach this Teacher’s Day with these gift ideas that will help them inside and outside the gym. And just maybe, you’ll get an easier gym session next time.
