You can go here to find out "about" them (click on "about" if it's not already there) and then pay the $15 if you insist or just go to youtube and subscribe to their channel for free or just watch the huge number of videos they already have posted (also free):

Also, if you have favorite videos or see one that you might like, you can see if the instructor has a website. Often, the instructor will list his or her certifications on their site, usually in the "About" section.

Here are some examples. (I picked three people off the top of my head.):

I'm not sure that there's a way to find that info, especially since there are various certification companies out there. If you are interested in a program though, you should be able to email or call the company before purchasing to see if they will give you that information. They should at least be able to give you the name of the person in the video and you can try doing a web search to see if you can find out more about them.

Hi everyone,

There may be no answer to this, but I have to try.

I'm basically in a place where I am starting over for what feels like the hundredth time...it's been a good three or four years since I have exercised regularly, and I've lost quite a bit of ground in the meantime.

I don't have access to a gym and can't afford a trainer to the extent that I need one...and I really don't know what else I can do. I have this quirk problem: I'm uncomfortable committing to a program without being able to verify that the instructor on screen is nationally certified first. Laugh if you must, but this matters to me.

I'm finding most sites aren't providing this information without committing first, so I feel like I'm playing Russian roulette. Does anyone know of any sites or trainers (this would include YouTube if we must) that can be verified ahead of time? I don't think lowering my standards is a good idea otherwise...

David
