    Fitness instructor

    We have students and teachers.
    we have doctors and patients.
    we have servers and clients.
    I don't know what the appropriate word is for "fitness instructor" and "his/her ".

    A fitness instructor could have clients or customers. I don't know what your question is regarding "his/her".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I meant “ I have been doing TRX workout. I have an TRX instructor/ trainer. She is my instructor, and learns me how to practice. So, I am her client.” I was looking for the word “client”.

    I don't know what's sophisticated about "client" but I'm sure you have a homophone problem.
