You can sync the exercise videos on your YouTube channel with your Trainerize account to use as custom exercises in your exercise library.
Step 1: Connect your YouTube account
Navigate to the "Addons" page in your Trainerize account and scroll down until you see the YouTube option. Click the option to "Connect your account"
Step 2: Import Your YouTube Videos
Once your YouTube account has been connected you can sync your YouTube videos to Trainerize by navigating to the "Addons" page, scrolling to the YouTube option, then clicking "Manage" > "Import YouTube Videos.
Check the boxes beside the videos you would like to import from YouTube to Trainerize. You can also select what type of exercise you would like to import the videos as. For more information regarding exercise types, please see this article.
Your exercises will now be viewable in your exercise library. Custom exercises you upload are viewable by you and your clients and are not viewable by other trainers using Trainerize.
Step 3: Make sure your YouTube videos are set to "Public" or "Unlisted"
By default, YouTube videos are set to "Public", meaning they are searchable and viewable by anyone on YouTube. If you want your clients to be able to view your exercises in Trainerize but not have them visible on your YouTube channel, make sure they are set to "Unlisted".
To do this, navigate to your YouTube Creator Studio, click "Videos", then check the boxes beside the videos you would like to use in Trainerize but not be visible on your YouTube channel. Click "Edit", then "Visibility", and choose "Unlisted".
Step 4: Make sure your videos are able to be embedded
Your YouTube videos must have the embeddable option turned on in order for them to be usable in Trainerize. To do this, navigate to your YouTube Creator Studio, click "Videos", then check the boxes beside the videos you would like to use in Trainerize.
Click the "Edit" button, click "Embedding", then make sure the option is set to "On".
Are there any copyright issues when using YouTube videos (with or without music)?
Please note that using YouTube videos do not pose any copyright risk as YouTube already checks for copyright permissions when creating a video. If you are using someone else's exercise videos, as they are already public, it does not pose any copyright risk.
