"The trainer was very down to earth and informative. I really like the way he explained his training process to keep me informed. He also went out of his way to make the session fun. The best part is that he works with your schedule as much as possible."

"I’ve been a client of Body by Design’s off and on for over 3 years and it’s been a great experience every time! I’ve been a gym rat and runner all my life, but when I hit 50 I started gaining weigh despite my workouts and runs. I thought I knew it all when it came to fitness and diet, but at that point I knew I might need to get some short-term help. I found Body by Design on the internet after doing a bunch of research and went in for a free trial. In one hour I found out just how much I didn’t know about working out! In three months I lost 32 pounds of fat and built my body back into what it looked like when I was 30 years old! I took the knowledge and advice they gave me and was then able to train myself much more effectively. I go back every three or four months for a “check up” and more training just to keep me honest. I look good, feel good and now consider myself a REAL fitness expert thanks to Joe and the trainers at Body! "

"Derrick helped me start a strength training plan after I received lousy numbers from my doctor. He started me out at a pace I could handle and challenged me appropriately as we continued. His advice and guidance helped me lose over 40+lbs in 4 months and get my type 2 diabetes under control. I would highly recommend him for anyone who is either just starting out or looking to improve on what they are doing. He is on time and focused every single session. I can’t recommend him enough."

"I've always struggled to put on weight and muscle. And before Audra helped to train me, I'd never had a workout routine that lasted over a week. Thanks to Audra and her incredibly detailed workout plans and diet specifications, I was able to put on 15 pounds (most of it lean muscle) in the span of a few months. Thanks to Audra, I still work out today, and she is always available whenever I have any follow up questions."

"Jonah is absolutely wonderful. He's experienced, professional, and a pleasure to be around. I always felt like he truly took into account my personal fitness needs, and he never failed to inspire me to keep pushing myself. I feel it is very important as a personal trainer to be simultaneously motivational and knowledgeable - Jonah definitely has both of those valued characteristics. I highly recommend him!"

"Aaron is an EXCELLENT trainer. Not only has he been extremely motivating and inspirational - he is an awesome teacher. I feel more in tune with my body than I ever have, and my fiancé (who is training with us, and is much more experienced in fitness than I am) has been pain-free for the first time in 5 years after a back injury after working with Aaron for 1 month. Aaron is thoughtful, flexible with my schedule, and is helping me overcome physical and psychological obstacles related to my health and fitness. I HIGHLY recommend Aaron - from beginner to expert - for realizing your potential and reaching your goals in fitness."

"I am glad that I was able to meet Larry Bratcher through Thumbtack. I had been out of the gym for a long time, and Larry understood that. He's been able to customize a training program for me that is flexible and varied. Several months ago I broke my elbow and he tailored my workout around that. I would highly recommend Larry!"

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.
