Does anyone know if this personal training certifying body is legit? I can get six weeks of courses and the test for about 700 bucks....Should I go for it??

WITS is way more legitimate than jokey certs like ACE, AFFA, AFPA, NETTA, ISSA, etc., but it is less respected than NSCA and ACSM. ACSM is the most legitimate certification. I am getting my ACSM certification now just to have something else to put on my resume, but I am still glad I did WITS through my local college. I had no problem getting personal training jobs at fitness centers with WITS. But ACSM is the gold standard.

WITS is legitimate, but not very well-known yet. Some local colleges partner with WITS to offer courses and certifications. I took a summer course through WITS and a local college and enjoyed the experience. The class was taught by a power-lifter with a PhD in exercise physiology. I really liked the fact that we got lots of class time and hands-on experience. Too many certifications these days are just study on your own at home with a book. We had lots of class time and lots of lab time. I had to complete a written exam (which was pretty difficult!), a practical / lab exam, an internship, and a CPR class to get certified through WITS.
