"Initially, I was skeptical about "distance coaching". How could someone in another state, that I'd never met, be my fitness coach? But it works. Getting the benefits of working with a professional trainer, on MY schedule, has been invaluable for me. Through the use of videos, Skype, emails, My Fitness Pal and texts, Brian and I have kept in close contact and have worked together successfully for several months now. He's been able to correct my form to make certain movements more effective, offer nutritional advice and continue to make the process fun and engaging. Brian took the time to find out what my goals are, what my challenges are, how many days I have to devote to training, what equipment is available to me, etc. It's never felt like One Size Fits All; everything has always been geared specifically towards me and what I'm trying to accomplish. Knowing there is still an accountability factor is important for me. Regular check ins are a key to making sure that I'm still on track and that any questions or concerns either of us has have are addressed."

"There are times in our busy lives we lose track of our health and our inability to stay fit. We do not realize how important eating healthy and staying in shape is, until we hit that dead end and our body and mind no longer can function properly. It is a certain person, who steps into your life and makes you conscious of how crucial it is to focus on yourself, mentally, physically, and emotionally. And for this, I owe it to one unique, extraordinary, intelligent, energized, determined, focused, young lady I have the privilege of calling my mentor, Amanda Fisher. Amanda approached me one day as she invited me to attend one of her boot camp sessions. There were no strings attached, she did not hassle me to attend, just asking to try it and see how I feel about it. Of course, my mind felt as though I really needed some change in my life, although my body wasn’t haven’t it. It almost seemed as though my brain was playing mind games with me. I literally had one excuse of not going after another. After much thought, I did attend her boot camp session. BEST decision ever! Amanda is an awesome trainer! Focusing on each individual’s physical capabilities. Gentle, but motivating you to push and take the next step. Her workout principles consist of stretching techniques, movement drills, and prevention of injuries. Amanda’s approach is to incorporate physical activity, conditioning that maintains performance, prevents injury and illness, and maintains a state of health and well-being within your life. It’s with sadness I say this; she is no longer in Arizona, but Michigan you have gained an asset, an Awesome Physical Trainer that is!!!! "

"My experience was very positive. Ken and his wife Marisa are very knowledgeable about diet and exercise. They were very encouraging when it came to developing better eating and training habits. They also have a nice at home training facility. Scheduling was my big problem, but only because I work an off shift. I would recommend them if you have a set schedule all ready. "

"Deana is a wonderful personal trainer! Truly Cares about your progress both in and outside of the gym. The workouts she puts you through in a half hour are more productive than any 1+ hour workout you've ever done! They are tough workouts but she really motivates and pushes you through the workouts. Plan on working with her long term!! -Bre"

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.
