"I have been training with Malik for about a month now. As a person who's had several trainers I can tell you that Malik is excellent. We discussed my goals and he designed a workout for me. He is patient and encouraging, yet he challenges me to get the most from our sessions. I like his style. He's easy to work with and I am seeing and feeling results! I would definitely recommend Malik. He is professional, punctual and a great trainer A+!"

"I’m writing this review to tell you how Joe, Peter and the rest of the Body by Design team saved my life. I’m an interior designer and personal stylist so appearance is very important in my business and my life. I came to Body by Design when I was 5’ 3” inches tall and with my weight ballooning to nearly 200 pounds. I had been an emotional eater most of my life, but had never weighed or looked like this – I was too big and unhappy. Joe began working with me slowly, not just with physical training, but with emotional support and knowledge too. When I came to Body by Design, I had severe diabetes, high blood pressure and clinical depression – and littlelief that I could change things. I also love clothes. I had a closet full of beautiful designer clothes that I was too big to wear. Now after working out with Body by Design, my situation is completely different. I weigh 102.5 pounds and in my early 60’s look the best I ever have. Earlier this year the local TV station even did a story on my success, which I would never have imagined! I continue to train twice a week with Joe and my new, healthy weight has been stable for more than a year. My diabetes has disappeared and my doctor has taken me off medications for that and high blood pressure. My weight would have shortened my life, if not killed me, but now I have a new lease on life and Body by Design to thank."

"I started going to Jayd for personal training once a week about a month ago. I had previously been going to Title and doing power hour multiple times a week plus eating well for many months. Since starting with Jayd I can see MUCH more differences in my body. Working with her has pushed whatever barrier was keeping me from the results I wanted. Checking in on Trainerize makes me feel accountable for what I'm eating and how much I'm working outside of our sessions because I know she can see. I'm just starting to play with other features in the app but I like that she uses something that keeps track so I don't have to! I definitely recommend her if you're ready to add that extra component to your routine or if you're just getting started and need the motivation!!"

"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!"

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.
