When there are two people & two actions, what determines the past participle agreement ?

In the following example......Elle m'a récompensé pour ________ à la gym.

She rewarded me for going to the gym........Who is doing THE action that determines the past participle agreement?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Pour être allé = Cause for going (complex expression)"

The lesson says to match the participle to the person doing the action. In your example the action is "having gone to the gym". The person who went to the gym is "me". So it depends on the sex of the speaker, in this case.
