"Matt has been training me 2x per week for the past 4 months. I went to Matt because I hadn't ever worked out in a gym on my own and wanted to learn how to build strength, lose body fat and create good habits. Matt is an excellent trainer, making sure that I'm using proper form, that I'm mentally and physically supported, encouraged and yet pushed hard. Every time I walk into the gym, I know that Matt will challenge me...but I also have a sense of accomplishment and pride because he doesn't set me up to fail. Slowly but surely I'm seeing the results and now I love going to the gym. The workouts are hard, but it feels so good! I just signed up for another 4 months under Matt's tutelage. I would highly recommend Matt as a trainer to anyone looking to get healthy through hard work!"

"I’ve been working with Hector for some time now and I enjoy my work out sessions with him a lot, I’m even looking forward to my training! He is very friendly and professional but most importantly, he listens to my concerns and customizes my exercise plan accordingly. My back has always been a challenge and some days are better than others but he always manages to make me feel good and to try to alleviate the discomfort by thinking of new exercises or stretches I can do. He would even help me find alternative exercises to follow through with PT programs. In addition to being an awesome trainer, Hector is flexible with the schedule and always provides a good dose of humor so the trainings are fun and beneficial at the same time!"

"I've spent the past few months training with Beth and have gotten so much out of a short time! She was amazing at pushing me to a point I haven't gone before and taught me so much about strength training, the importance of cardio, and also nutrition. She was extremely knowledgeable and you can tell she truly has a passion for what she does. I highly recommend her for all of your personal fitness goals!"

"Pete is awesome! When I first started working with Pete, I was an over-stressed, overly-sedentary fellow at one of Boston's many training hospitals, and had lost all motivation to work out. I couldn't go a quarter mile without huffing and puffing and giving up. After a little while, I not only got back to doing 5Ks, but managed to complete a half-marathon, which was a long time goal! Pete was always great at coming up with new, fun workouts that kept me motivated. Coming for a session never felt like an extra stressful chore on an already overly busy schedule, but was something fun to look forward to! Sessions were never discouraging, but rather helped me to keep working towards my goals. I highly recommend Pete, and only wish that I still lived close by enough to keep working with him!"

"The sessions with Greg are/were awesome! It was a perfect balance of pushing me to a level that I didn't think I could get to, while adding some compassion in the coaching approach. Things were never the same, there were lots of ways that he switched up the sessions so that our bodies would not get used to the routine. I hate that I am no longer close to where he is to take advantage of his training, but if you are in the Boston area definitely look him up! It is worth every penny and then some!"

"Hector has been great! My wife has had three sessions so far and feels that he has her on the right track. He has worked with her on nutrition as well as doing interval strength training. I will have my wife review Hector after a month and see how she feels. So far, so good."

"I have been working with Geoff for 3 months now and it has been an awesome experience. He is passionate about his work, which reflects in my training. He is super nice, fun to work with and knows what he’s doing. During the week when I am not training with him, he maps out personalized workouts through an app that is easy and fun to use. He is also readily available for questions through text or email. As for my results, so far I have lost body fat and gained muscle, definition and strength. This has also been a great learning experience, he has taught me much about weight training and nutrition that I can carry on with me throughout life. Would highly recommend, thanks!"

"Very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and highly skilled therapist. I have been working with Brett for over 3 years now. I first started working with Brett for personal training. After a back injury I started working with him as my physical therapist. I am always impressed and satisfied with services received; he takes the time to explain the causes of symptoms and pains and explains what needs to get worked on, why and how to safely go about it. My back pain is much more controllable and less frequent and I am much stronger than before we started working together. I would recommend anyone suffering from joint pain, an injury, or looking to step up his or her training gives Barbell Therapy a call."

"I started training with Billy in Jan 2017 after losing 50 pounds on Weight Watchers. I interviewed other trainers at the time but never found a good fit. Upon meeting Billy for the first time, I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and experience about nutrition, strength training, anatomy, and overall fitness. He is an excellent listener and employs routines and strategies that support his client's goals / needs. Little did I know that I would reach my goal weight (lose another 30 lbs for total 80 lb loss), succeed in strength training taking me to new personal records that I never dreamed of (deadlifts, etc...), firm up body and run my very first 5K within 6-7 months of starting to work with Billy. I have had a few injuries (shoulder, back) from extracurricular sports that have required physical therapy. Billy understands PT's approach, is happy to communicate & build plans with them, and then modifies our routine to support PT objectives while continuing to stay on a path supporting strength training and overall fitness. I plan to continue working with New School Fitness / Billy on a regular basis (training for "Tough Mudder" or possibly "Spartan" - can't believe it - so amazing). After such a successful, and fun, first year training with Billy, I am happy to highly recommend "New School Fitness"."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is CPR training?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

What is first aid training?

With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

  • Asthma attack
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Choking
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • External bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Poisoning
  • Neck, head or back injury
  • Stroke
  • Seizure

First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

How do you get your first aid certificate?

To get your first aid certificate, you must take a first aid training course designed for certification. Certified training professionals offer courses to employers, schools or other groups. For an in-person training, you may go to a training location such as a Red Cross classroom, or a professional first aid and CPR trainer can come to you or your office. Most first aid training courses take three to five hours or more, which prepares you to take the first aid certification test. To boost your chances, you can take online practice tests or review study guides. Once you pass the first aid exam, an official digital certificate is emailed to you. You can also have a wallet card or printed certificate sent to you.

What can you do with a first aid certificate?

People with a first aid certificate are trained to respond quickly and appropriately in life-threatening situations. Although a first aid certificate alone isn’t enough to secure a job, it can make you more attractive to certain types of potential employers. When you have a first aid certificate, you’ve proved that you know how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and handle emergency situations like choking, heavy bleeding, a heart attack or stroke, or anaphylaxis. Most parents prefer babysitters and lifeguards with first aid certification. Many professionals, especially those who work with children, are required to have first aid training, including teachers, coaches, counselors and therapists, firefighters, and social workers. In addition to adult and pediatric first aid plus CPR and AED courses, you can take first aid training specifically designed for babysitting and child care, for health care settings, and for swimming and water safety situations.
