Hey all, 

I was wondering whether anyone ever "tips" at a gym they've visited in Thailand, and if so, what the etiquette is?

I'm thinking especially when ones spent some time at a particular gym, and you feel like the trainer has made an extra effort with you. 

Thanks for your thoughts!

When I was in Chiang Rai I added extra cash to my envelope at the end of my stay to both tip my trainers and cover gas costs as they drove me around town a bunch on their bike. I also bought them 4 chickens because they cooked for me several nights (the trainers were brothers and their mom cooked for the family plus me the hungry farang). I am not sure what the proper etiquette is in Thai culture, but they were very thankful for the extra cash/gifts, same as I was very grateful for the extra care they showed me.

The above suggestion is great, if you wish a little money at the end or a gift will make their day.
