"Maddy is very caring and very good at what she does. I am glad I took her class March 16 2019. She made me feel comfortable and at ease and was good at helping us through the process and answering all of our questions Katherine"
~ Kate B. from Gilbert, AZ on Yelp on March 16, 2019
"This is my second class at Zen CPR! Professional, very thorough yet doesn't take all day. Lingfei has a perfect set up for classes and all the equipment needed. She has a very good hands on course and is certified with The American Heart Association . I've noticed other locations charge so much more and Lingfei is very fair with her prices. There is no one who charges less.
Lingfei has other talents and gifts as well and is a wonderful and caring healer. She genuinely cares about people and knows her life purpose.
I called her last minute in a panic as I had to have the CPR within one day and she said come down if no one else can do it. She is such a kind person and showed up just for me to get my recertification . Who does this these days? NOONE! I would go to no one else! Very lucky and blessed to have this person and service in my life and career!"
~ Krissy L. from Mesa, AZ on Yelp on March 1, 2019
"I have been in the medical field for about 12 years now, and I haven't had a CPR instructor that stands out until attending Lingfei/Matty's course. She is easily one of the most down-to-earth people I have come across and she makes the course absolutely enjoyable. I have taken my necessary CPR certification course through her twice now and will continue to do so. See you again in two years for my renewal, Matty!"
~ Tara C. from Mesa, AZ on Yelp on Nov 13, 2018
"Came back for my renewal! Still loving everything about the class! I had to reschedule my class and just a quick email/text made it so easy to do! Thanks, Matty, for another great class! See you in 2 years again when I have to renew my certification haha."

"My wife and I are special needs foster parents and we take CPR serious in our home. We searched out for good quality training for continuing education we wanted to make sure we got trained correctly. We highly recommend Matty at Zen CPR we got fantastic training on CPR , AED and first aid to help us be prepared for care for our sweet children. W feel much more prepared."
~ Erik G. from Gilbert, AZ on Yelp on Aug 10, 2018
"I've been a nurse now for 15 years so I have had my fair share of CPR instructors. I loved the atmosphere of this location, very relaxing and comfortable. The instructor was friendly and very down to earth. She made a not so fun class a fun and lively experience. Will definitely use her in the future!
A bonus- she donates some of the money she receives from teaching to the Humane Society."
~ Linda E. from Hammond , IN on Yelp on July 3, 2018
"I had just had our babies and wanted to make sure we and our friends and family were prepared for infant CPR if the need ever arose. Matty was excellent to schedule with and was able to do a private class for just us and she even came to us so we didn't have to pack up our infants and go to the studio. It was so nice to have that one on one instruction so we all felt comfortable with what needs to happen during an emergency. We received our certificate same day and couldn't have asked for a better class!"
~ Lindsey Fink from Gilbert on Google on April 5,2018
"I enjoyed the class the instructor was friendly and helpful. I was able to schedule the class on the weekend which was very convenient."
~ Shaniee Williams from Maricopa on Google on April 1, 2018
"Recently had her as BLS CPR trainer and she was extremely insightful. I thought the lesson would be tedious or monotonous, but with her great personality and indepth knowledge of the skill, I was able to retain the information easily. I could truly see the genuine passion she has for teaching this vital procedure and I wish I had more instructors like her in college. I definitely recommend her!!! 😄"
~ Autumn B. on Thumbtack.com on Dec 13, 2017

~Danielle R. from Phoenix, AZ on Yelp.com on May 12, 2017
"As an instructor for BLS in the military many years ago, the instructor did an amazing job of bringing it all back to me. Making the new changes to me seemed very simple. I would recommend ZenCPR to anyone, ex military or not. The class was informative, and we all had a lot of hands on training. Exactly what I was looking for to bring my CPR back up to par!! Thank you ZenCPR!!"
~ Wes McLaughlin on Google in May, 2017

~Ian Y. from Gilbert, AZ on Yelp.com on May 1, 2017

~ Allyson P. from San Antonio, TX on Yelp.com on April 7, 2017
"ZenCPR fit me into class fast & stayed late when I couldn't make it on time, in order to complete my training. The instructor was not only able to answer all my complex questions but elaborated & provided insights, to give me a firm grasp of the subject at hand, so as to improve my judgement capabilities. I have knee problems, and was shown how to compensate in multiple ways. I was given the time & freedom to practice on the manequins as long as I wanted. My CPR card was emailed to me before I left. It was the best CPR class I've ever taken. I really enjoyed it."
~ Judy B. on Thumbtack.com on March 11, 2017

"Loved Ling and the CPR/BLS class!
Price = 5 stars
Ease of signing up online = 5 stars
Class availability = 5 stars
Length of the class = 5 stars
I've taken many CPR classes. And this is probably the only one that I've retained and understood most of the information.
I would definitely take this class again when it's time to re-certify and recommend this to all my coworkers and friends! Thanks, Ling!"

~ Alyssa M., from Gilbert, AZ on Yelp.com on May 26, 2016
"I have a wonderful experience with ZEN CPR. Ling is an amazing instructor who made the entire process smooth and fun. I needed a CPR?BLS card for nursing school and called her late for an early morning class the next day. Even though I was the only one that will register for that class she helped me out and drove from Scottsdale to Gilbert to make sure I can learn and receive the proper CPR training. Thank you Ling!"

I definitely encourage this BLS training course. You will not be disappointed!"
~ Jessica E., from Coolidge, AZ on Yelp.com on March 22, 2016
"My experience was fantastic. This is my 3rd time doing CPR/AED and first Aid. Matty did a thorough job teaching the techniques. I would definitely recommend this company and Matty (Lingfei) to any individuals or company."
~ Emily A. from Phoenix, AZ on Yelp.com on March 11, 2016
"First time using Thumbtack & had a great experience. ZenCPR (Ling) responded within 20 minutes & accommodated a class time that worked w/ my schedule the very next day. I'm so happy she responded, I met a great professional who is passionate about her work (goes well beyond CPR/BLS certifications) & gained a friend as well. I highly recommend ZenCPR."
~ Rhonda W. from Gilbert, AZ on Thumbtack.com on OCT 1, 2015
"Ling is very knowledgeable in first aid and CPR and taught our company a lot. I am confident that all of our construction crew members will be able to do what is necessary in case of an emergency where one of them isn't breathing. Being able to save a life is one of the most necessary, valuable things we, as individuals, can offer to another human being. I hope our guys won't have to use the skills they learned today, but in the event they do, they'll be as nest prepared they can be."
~ Elena C. from Tempe, AZ (Ideal Energy of Arizona LLC) on Yelp.com on Aug 18, 2015
"I earned my healthcare professional CPR/AED certification from ZenCPR. I also earned my First Aid card. Ling was my instructor and she was great! She made it easy to remember the procedures and steps. She explained the reason behind all the procedures which gives you a much better understanding of why you're doing what you're doing! I highly recommend ZenCPR!"
~ Alyssa W. on Google+ on April 28, 2015
"I took the First Aid/CPR Training and Ling was great. She made it a fun learning experience to get certified. She focused on the main points and always would ask if we had any questions."
~ Patti A. from Glendora on Yelp.com on Oct 31, 2014
"Personable and accommodating, Ms. Ling is very professional and is able to schedule her time around mine. She is very helpful in providing explanations and reminders along the course, whether it is renewal or brand new certifications. I highly recommend this course."
~ S. L. from Arcadia on Yelp.com on Oct 11, 2014
"I have taken cpr and first aid classes in both New Jersey and in LA for the past 15 years. Since living in LA I have gone to the same place for convenience. This year I have decided to find someone a little more local who could train both myself and my staff. I had an appointment with another instructor who had fell through at the very last minute. Leaving us in a scramble to find another instructor a.s.a.p. After reading Ling's awesome reviews, I gave her a call.
She was informative, patient, reliable and very professional. She was even very knowledgeable about my field as a Early Child Care Educator and day care owner. She came on an early Saturday morning, which I really appreciated and was so awesome and making sure to keep us engaged. Her material and training was relevant to our day care center which impressed me!
My staff was kinda of deeding cpr/first aid class, after 5mns of meeting Ling they were relaxed and laughing. By the end of class they really appreciated her sincerity and empowering them with the confidence to react and help in case of an emergency situation.
I love that Ling kept clear communication with me. She is very thorough and passionate in what she teaches. I highly recommend her, especially anyone in the field of early childhood education. Ling is truly the best!"
~ Sylvia A. from Glendale on Yelp.com on Oct 3, 2014
"I took this CPR/FirstAid and it was great. Wonderful staff, comfortable accommodations, great time and good price."
~ Kimberly L. from Covina on Yelp.com on Sept 22, 2014
"Ling does an excellent job as a trainer for CPR/AED and First Aid. She finds out what level of "hands on" experience or previous coursework you have already had and tailors the class to meet your exact needs, while at the same time making sure to provide a thorough and complete training. Her class in interactive; engaging the learner in multiply ways to help make your learning the most effectual. Ling has a humble, friendly, respectful and fun personality. I can't think of any person who I could not recommend her for. She goes the extra mile to find ways to accommodate your schedule; helping you to find the easiest time and place for you to take the class. If you're like me, after taking her class, you'll wonder why you put off getting your certification for so long!"
~ Sherry M. from Sun Valley on Yelp.com on Aug 29, 2014
"I took a BLS class with Ling, and it was a great class. She made the material very fun and informative. No one fails her class, she says. I like the way she teaches. Her prices are super reasonable. She will even travel to you or your workplace, for a fee. Highly recommended."
~ Roseanna L. from Azusa on Yelp.com on July 26, 2014
"This was my first time taking a CPR class and it was amazing. She did a wonderful job i understood everything and i would definitely recommend her to anyone thinking of taking the CPR class."
~ Natalie C. from Arcadia on Yelp.com on July 12, 2014
"This class was super informative and not nearly as dry as the info given in other CPR classes I've taken. Ling is knowledgeable, experienced and through in her teaching. We had an amazing experience with Ling! I highly recommend Ling's CPR and First Aid course!"
~ Mediha V. from Irvine on Yelp.com on May 19, 2014
"Pros: Best CPR/First Aid Class for the money....
Cons: None, in my own humble opinion.
On April 26, 2014 - I went to a CPR/First Aid Class at Wellness Works in Glendale, CA. The class was thought by "Ling Hui" a US Navy veteran, Holistic Healer and certified instructor extraordinaire to say the least. It was a small intimate class which worked towards the students advantage hence the special attention. The class was presented in a very practical, straight forward, no non- sense and fun/funny way (not boring at all.) As, I have taken CPR/First Aid numerous times I would like to point out that Ling covered the new modern updates not to mention elucidated very well what brought the certain changes in CPR/1st Aid training. A special added part of the course is the AED certification. She provided a very practical approach on the hands-on portion of the course. The certificates were handed out immediately after the class was completed and out of the kindness of her heart informed us to get in touch directly with her in case a replacement certificate is needed plus if we need any other resource....
Overall, my experience with Ling's class was very positive. Ultimately, the final test of First Aid know how is to be able to save a life given the situation. Ling recommended very good apps for smart phones which is more cost effective than having to buy class materials. In less words it is never about the money for Ling since the cost of the course practically covers the course materials/certificate and she made a special arrangement with Wellness Works to help fund the Veteran's Welcome Center in providing much needed health services to veterans and their families.
I recommend the class to save money and at the same time support a worthy cause.
Thank you, Ling for your military service and your continued service and support you give to Veterans and for everything else. God bless and full speed ahead...."
~ Patrick I. from Glendale on Yelp.com on May 16, 2014
"Entertaining, & very lively. Highly recommend this class. This course went through more material than any other class I've taken before. Ling is very helpful, skilled, and very funny. Makes the time go by fast."
~ Laurie G. from Sun Valley on Yelp.com on April 26, 2014
"Fantastic! Great CPR/BLS class; I totally recommend it to anyone in need of a recertification. I just took the class with Ling and she was very thorough. I definetely will be coming back. She has two locations, duarte and Burbank."
~ Stephen G. on Yelp.com on April 8, 2014
"I am a Girl Scout leader and needed to recertify and thought my Girl Scout troop would also benefit from a First Aid/CPR course as they are starting to babysit. Ling did a wonderful job teaching my Girl Scout troop. This is my 4th time taking this course and I still learned a few new things. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the curriculum. In addition, she kept the subject matter interesting for my middle school aged girls. Great course, great teacher! Highly recommend Ling!"
~ Jennifer P. from Camarillo on Yelp.com on March 29, 2014
"Ling was the best CPR instructor I have ever had. Her course is less expensive than the Red Cross and is much more interesting and fun. She is clear and concise and incorporates humor to reinforce important points. I drove 17 miles to take her class. It was definitely worth it."
~ Evette R. from Pacific Palisades on Yelp.com on March 25, 2014
"It was fun taking Ling's CPR class. She is knowledgeable on the topic and I learned a lot from her. I needed this course for my program of study and had to take it as soon as possible. I was so lucky and fortunate she allowed me to take her class even though I enrolled last minute. Although she has classes scheduled on certain days and time, she is flexible and may be able to work with your schedule. I highly recommend you to take her class. You won't regret it. In addition, the price she offers for her class is unbeatable!"
~ Liza W. from Los Angeles on Yelp.com on Jan 16, 2014
"Thank's Lingfei for CPR class !!!! Ling was a Awesome Teacher. If any one done's or know CPR it's can be long and boring!!!!!! Ling made it fun and I learn some new stuff.

~ Chrissy C. from Santa Clarita on Yelp.com on Jan 15, 2014
"The course was simple and fun! Since I'm a student taking the course, I had a great pricing plan to take the course. Really great price! Rather than the price itself, course was fun too because the instructor was a comedian and passionate. She's a people-person, and she gives a very good vibe around. Last but not least, there's good parking there, so don't worry about parking."
~ Daniel C. from Los Angeles on Yelp.com on Dec 26, 2013

~ Catherine S. from Sylmar on Yelp.com on August 29, 2013
"First I needed to have a CPR class as soon as possible. I called and left a message and received a call back in less than an hour. Ling made it possible for me to meet her a day later for a 1 on 1 class. The 1st Aide Classes are on dvd's to watch, Ling made that part of the class to the point and in sections easy to understand. The CPR was also just the way you need to learn by practicing on the dummy bodies an Lings training was perfect. Ling's business office was very roomy, clean and comfortable.I would highly recommend the 1st Aide & CPR Classes to anyone who needs to take the course. Ling is a very vivacious person and I really enjoyed her class. Thanks
~ Victoria C. from Calabasas on Yelp.com on July 17, 2013
"I had to get my BLS CPR very last minute - I literally only had one day to meet my deadline. I was scrambling everywhere & Ling was very helpful & was able to fit me into her busy schedule within an hour of calling her.
I enjoyed the one-on-one format of her class & she's very thorough & teaches you all the CPR that you might miss when zoning out in a classroom format class.
Her rate is also VERY reasonable & much cheaper than anyone else, especially for a one-on-one class.
Thanks again, Ling for all your help & for saving me last minute!!!"
~ Crystal W. on Thumbtack.com on May 17, 2013
"Very knowledgable, great instructor. Very down to earth. Mad us feel comfortable bs answered all of our questions."
~ Alisha P. on Thumbtack.com on May 2, 2013
"I hardly ever write reviews for anyone; however, AFTER taking a class with instructor Lingfei…I couldn't resist not to spread my SATISFACTION with this class. I took a re certification CPR class with Lingfei earlier Today. This was hands down the best class, and best CPR instructor I've ever had. What I loved about this class was the fact that I had one to one time with the instructor.
In addition, I LOVE the fact that Lingfei was fun, passionate, funny and very KNOWLEDGEABLE at what she does and teaches. She makes sure you understand the information, and doesn't waste time on information that you already know. In addition, she proactively reaches out to her students to inform them about any changes in logistics of CPR from previous books. She certainly closely pays attention to how the student performs and promptly gives feedback as well. The benefits of the one-on-one class is that I got all of my questions answered and full attention on ME! Lingfei works at YOUR pace, and even goes over everything in detail with additional time left for questions. She was SO helpful, My favorite part is that it didn't take up to 4-5 hours like draining group classes. I learned all the necessary techniques and passed the test.
I also liked the fact that Lingfei is very affordable & FLEXIBLE in accommodating her student’s schedule. Lingfei also provided me my CPR card on the same day AND even scanned a copy of it (and e-mailed it to me in a PDF file for my own records). This class is hands down: awesomely informative, easy to pass, fun and knowledgeable. I will highly recommend this class & instructor Lingfei to everyone.
Great class! THANKS AGAIN LINGFEI!!!
