"My son participated in youth track under Coach Barr for several years in addition to several periods of individualized training sessions. Under his dedicated guidance and knowledgeable instruction my son consistently placed well in the regional track meets and was selected to run for the varsity squad in his freshman year of High School. My son credits coach Barr's encouraging personality and positive style of training for much of his success. As a parent I was very grateful for Keith's patient personality along with his expert coaching. "

"Awesome trainer! Unconventional training was new to me - battle ropes, mace, kettlebells. He really knows his stuff and he walked me through it. By the end of the session, it was fluid and hit muscles I didn't know I had. An amazing work out. But his mobility training was what really BLEW ME AWAY! The techniques he showed me released some chronic knee pain I've had for TEN years. I've been gutting it out and thought: hey, we all get older, right? That's what happens. Things wear down. I just assumed I would live with forever with the pain, develop a long term relationship with advil or have to get surgery. Nope. GONE! I can't thank you enough bro and I can't wait to learn more at our next session. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WITHOUT RESERVATION!"

"I’ve had many people throughout my life’s in various sports with the title “coach” but I could honestly say that I guess I never understood what a coach was until I worked with Ilya. You aren’t just another monthly payment and you don’t even be handed cookie cutter BS. He does and will go above and beyond your expections of a coach and will always do his abolsute best to ensure you’re getting the best advise and coaching for YOU. I can’t thank him enough. Pictures: a few months before working with Ilya—> 1 year year later under his coaching."

"Lamar is a special kind of trainer. I say that because whatever your goal is, he goes out of his way to find the solutions that work best for you. He could easily just give you a cookie cutter program and absent himself from your goals; but whether it is using technology or putting his own body to work with yours, he exhaust himself finding the best solution for you. He will meet you at your level and then help you improve and become better at what it is that you do. In my case I have been an amateur martial arts athlete most of my life and in my late 40's I have decided that competing in the open Ultra Heavy Weight Class in Brasilian Jiujitsu would be a blast. But I needed to improve my conditioning. I called on Lamar. Not only did he design a program for me and my specific needs as an older athlete. He also suited up in a Gi/Kimono and drilled with me until neither of us could barely move. The result was both a bronze and later a silver metal in my first two competitions. I could not a have achieved my goals without his help. That is what I want in a trainer . A trainer who cares about what it is I want to do rather than making me into something I'm not. I find that to be the difference between a novice and a master level trainer, of which is the latter, Lamar McKay is a Master LevelTrainer. Jose A. Esquea"

"I’ve been working with Mike for over a year and half. I had wonderful results until I fell off with life’s curveballs. Mike’s energy and motivation gave me energy to push through on days I did not want. Mike is a very professional trainer at all times, his punctuality is outstanding, for example: you have a 9:30am session with him, Mike is there at 9am waiting for you. Most trainer are accessible all times of the day, unlike Mike you can hit him up pretty much anytime and he will reply back. Mike is the BEST!!"

"I first met Marie when I was looking for a trainer to help me get in shape for the police academy. I was never a runner, but in about 6 months, Marie whipped me into shape. Since then, for the past 8 years, I've trained off and on with Marie (depending on what my schedule allowed). Marie always makes our training sessions fun and different. You never really know what she has in store for you before you get there. Marie has always taken into account my own level of fitness as well as others who have joined in group sessions. She never pushes us further than what we can handle, but always encourages us to go just a little more than we did the last time. My favorite workouts are Bleacher Bootcamp days, where she mixes running with assorted strength training exercises. Your muscles don't know what hit them! "

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.  

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..

Is kickboxing hard?

Kickboxing is as intense a workout as you want it to be. As with any fitness regimen, the more effort you put in, the more results you will get. The type of kickboxing you do will determine how physically challenging it is. Combat or self-defense kickboxing, where you train in a martial arts studio with sandbags or spar against combat partners, can be an intense physical workout. Group kickboxing classes that use sandbags as part of the workout will also elevate the degree of intensity, because of the level of exertion punching and kicking the bag requires. Cardio kickboxing group fitness, which employ kicking and punching moves but no sandbags, has comparable intensity to jogging but works a wider range of muscles while increasing strength, flexibility and coordination. Here are some of the core kickboxing moves:

  • Cross: A straight punch that you throw slightly across your body, using your dominant hand.
  • Jab: A quick, straight, face punch. Usually thrown with the non-dominant hand.
  • Uppercut: A punch thrown up from the midsection (using either hand) that connects with the underside of your opponent’s chin.
  • Hook: A curved punch (using either hand) that connects with your competitor’s jaw or chin.
  • Side kick: A kick delivered when your competitor is at an angle to you. Raise your leg to the side, then bend at the knee to deliver the kick.
  • Front kick: A kick delivered straight on while you are facing your opponent.
  • Roundhouse kick: A kick delivered by swinging a leg up in a clockwise or counterclockwise motion (depending on which leg you’re using) with momentum to strike the opponent with the instep of the foot.
