The Practical Skills Certifications
W.I.T.S. is the standalone industry Practical Skills Certification. Everyone needs practical skills to lead a client or athlete. Core Knowledge is half of the equation for a successful career. W.I.T.S. took the national stage in 1993 to launch the fitness industry into the national level to set standards with our colleagues in the health occupation fields.
The lack of hands-on training left personal trainers and other fitness professionals (group fitness, senior fitness, medical fitness) struggling to succeed and make a living. W.I.T.S. is the only certification group to have college credits in four different certifications.
Our course design is user-friendly education with a comprehensive practical approach to ensure you can perform safe workouts
to get results for your clients. Employers request the W.I.T.S. certification at a very high rate. We are the first in the fitness industry to get NCCA
Accreditation in testing the written core knowledge and practical skills.
This fact shows employers you are a great asset! To this end, our dual mission is to provide both health occupational type education and useable certification programs for the career. W.I.T.S. collaborates exclusively with colleges and universities in North America. Frankly, we provide the best personal training schools and certification in all of the fitness industry. Online education and online testing does not prepare students for leading “PERSONAL” training. Role-playing in-person brings it all together.
Our Certification Council is comprised of a certification director, four W.I.T.S. Certified Personal Trainers, and a public member. Meet our
Our mission is to enhance public protection by developing and administering a certification program that upholds standards for competent practice in personal training. All of our fitness professionals are qualified to help improve the fitness and health of clients.
