Answered by Michael Siler on Mar 13, 2013

After looking over W.I.T.S.'s website and reading into them some, they seem reputable to me. They're also a National Board of Fitness Examiners Accredited Certification according to IDEA (http://www.ideafit.com/certifications/personal-trainer?pid=25) which is good news.
