About Me

My interview with New Media Rockstars in Santa Monica, CA
My interview with GetFizzycal in London
Hey there!

So a little about me. You can read this or just watch the videos above!

BACKGROUND:

Hello! My name is Cassey Ho and I am a certified fitness instructor, creator of POP Pilates, the designer of oGorgeous Bags, and a lover of all things healthy. I am so happy that I get to spend my time teaching people how to live to their best potential all over the world thanks to YouTube and this blog. Here’s my story :)

I graduated with an honors degree in Biology from Whittier College in 2009 but decided not to pursue my parent’s predestined path for me in medicine. While in school, I started teaching Pilates as a sophomore at a small studio down the street from our campus. Right then and there, instructing became one of the most satisfying parts of my life. (I am certified by NESTA and Balanced Body University for mat and reformer.) Since then I’ve worked at numerous gyms and currently am teaching POP Pilates at Equinox West LA. You should come by and take a class! Here’s the sched.

Senior year, I launched oGorgeous when I couldn’t find a yoga bag that was stylish enough or big enough to fit my mat and gym things in. My first design was the Beverly Bowtie yoga bag, complete with tons of pockets, satin lining, gold chain straps, and a glam bow of course. Super girly, it attracted the attention of my students. Orders started to roll in and the next set of designs were drawn.

After working a bit in corporate America for a fashion retail company in buying, I realized that my passion for design and entrepreneurship could no longer be a “side thing”. It was around this time too that one of my biggest dreams came true…the Pleated Pocket Sparkle yoga bag was featured in SHAPE Magazine and on the Wendy Williams Show!

I remember running to Target after getting a text from my sister saying that her friend thought she saw my bag in the magazine. I can see myself so clearly right now flipping madly through SHAPE. My heart pounding. My fingers shaking. Was it true? When I saw the picture, I melted onto the linoleum floor and cried. It was an amazing feeling.

So I quit my job.

POP Pilates, YOUTUBE & BLOGGING

I first got interested in Pilates when I was 16 and about to enter a pageant. I was looking for a fun way to tone up when I saw an infomercial on TV with Mari Winsor showing the audience some core tightening moves…it was so intriguing. I begged my parents to buy the DVD set for me. When they said yes, I was overjoyed. I started doing Pilates religiously!  Not only did I end up winning that pageant, Mari inspired me to get certified sophomore year of college. To this date, I’ve been doing Pilates for 10 years and teaching for 6.5 years.

I came up with the idea for POP Pilates as I was teaching classes at the gym because I loved the music on the radio and I wanted to give Pilates a little boost in energy. The reaction was positive, my students loved it, and I’ve been teaching a more upbeat style of Pilates ever since!!

My first POP Pilates video was made after I graduated college and before I moved out to the East Coast…it was more of a farewell thing for my Pilates students in CA. I didn’t make very many videos back when I was working because I didn’t have time. But after I quit, I started YouTubing and blogging religiously. When things started to pick up, I moved back to CA and focused on running oGorgeous and making more workouts for my POPsters.

And guess what? I eventually got to meet Mari Winsor and thank her for inspiring me to teach Pilates. I sounded like a lunatic when I saw her at the BeFit studios in Hollywood before our taping of “Fit at Any Age.” I just had to let her know how much I appreciated her! See episode here.

Let me tell you, it’s hard work but it’s the most satisfying work in the world to me. I don’t care that I don’t sleep until 3am in the morning everyday. My job is my passion and my passion is my job. I feel so lucky to be able to encourage you to eat healthier, train harder, and live happier lives by doing what I enjoy. When I get to do Blogilates meetups in different cities, it warms my heart to know that you all are such good, positive, and inspirational people. Here’s a recap of the New York meetup that was just insanely energetic…I’ll never forget the experience!

 

And here’s a video from my Boston Meetup!

 

I never expected my blog or videos to be helpful to so many people. So thank you for continually motivating me to be a better instructor. You helped me win the Shorty Award for #SocialFitness this year (see my funny acceptance speech here), I was named the Best Healthy Living Blogger of 2012 by FITNESS Magazine and am the #2 most influential online personality by Sharecare…only second to Jillian Michaels.

My life consists of lots of working out, eating clean, cooking clean, teaching fitness classes, designing for my store ShopBlogilates.com, writing, filming, editing, picture-taking, modeling, and producing. Oh and tweeting. Lots of tweeting. (Follow me @Blogilates)

train like a beast look like a beauty tank

I also competed in a fitness Bikini competition once. You may find that interesting so here’s a link if you wanna see how it went! Here’s basically what my meal plan looked like if you want to get started: 90 Day Challenge.

I love my POPsters and the Blogilates Community!!! Thanks for inspiring me to be the best I can be daily. You make me who I am and I love you for it.

In early 2014, I was on the Dr Oz and Steve Harvey Show! Check out my Steve Harvey episode here:

K, well follow me on facebook and twitter and let’s keep the convo going!!!!

Much love,

Cassey

  1. Hi Cassey. I’ve been doing your workout videos for nearly 7 months now. I love them, I love your enthusiasm. I’ve even gotten 2 of my classmates to join in the fun with me :). However, lately I’ve been feeling a bit bored with the continuous repetition of the same moves in almost all videos posted for the particular day. How can I jazz it up again? Or can you possibly come up with new more challenging moves please. Thank you and keep inspiring young girls like me. You are literally my hero. I feel like my self confidence has grown ever since I began your program. Stay lovely :D
    -Kay.

  2. Hey Cassey,
    i love your videos! Thanks to you I have been doing sport everyday for almost a month now!

    I think she would be awesome!!

  4. OMG yass!!!

  5. Michelle Sadowitz says:

    Hi Cassey! I love your workouts and I love that it challenges me to push myself. This is really random, but I really enjoy watching dancing with the stars, and I thought that you would be a great person to be on the show! I’m sure that it would be a new challenge for you and you love new challenges right?! And I would get to see you dance :)

    Hey Cassey,

    I just happened to stumble across your workouts on YouTube while my son was watching his shows. I have since downloaded the app and printed off the March calendar and the Inner leg challenge. I love these workouts because they are simplified enough that even someone who is a beginner to Pilates can do it. I also love that the calender breaks everything down so that its easy to follow being a working mother its hard to fit things in sometimes but this makes it so compact and ready to move. My goal is that by the time my wedding happens in June that I will be slimmer and sexier. I plan to keep following the calenders from here on out!!!

    Thank you so much!!!!

  7. Hey Cassey! I just got done doing today’s burpees and realized my upper body strength sucks (I mean, I knew that already, but it was a painful reminder).

    I think it would be awesome if next months challenge was focused on arm strength. I love the challenges they help keep me consistent and get me in the mood for the rest of the calender!

  8. Cassey,
    I ordered both your Total Body Workout and Flat Abs Fast DVD’s from your site.
    I love them both! They are the best Pilates workouts I have ever done! They are tough workouts but your bubbly personality made me want to keep going.
    I was sore after doing both of them but I can tell that I’m going to see results.
    I can’t wait until you come out with another workout DVD.
    Thank you for your great workouts! :)

  9. Hi Cassey!
    I love your workouts so much and your meal plans have helped me feel better about myself and my body while losing weight with actually enjoying what i eat.
    However , I started university this year and put on weight since I am still trying to adjust to the food in a different country. I decided to start your meal plan again and I was really excited but I only could find the first week. Where is the rest of the meal plan gone? Are you planning on uploading it again?

    Please help!
    Thank you!! xxxxx

  10. Hi Cassey! I’m jenny. I’m a thirteen year old ice dancer and I train six times a week. I really have fun and enjoy your workouts. I was just wondering if there were any workouts to make your butt narrower? Also, are there any tips to make muscles less bulky? Thanks! Jenny.

  11. Hi, Cassey!
    my friend first introduced me to your workouts in January and i was totally hooked! however, like with every other workout plan i went on, i had a hard time staying motivated and slacked off. A LOT. I was wondering if you had any advice on staying motivated?
    thank you so much!!!

  12. The only way that you will ever feel confident is if you love your body. The issue is not your body; it’s your attitude towards your body. Learn to love your body and focus on being healthy rather than being skinny, and you will feel much more confident in your body!

  13. Hi Cassey,

    Thank you for creating Fit Journal. The colors and pictures are so appealing. I used it everyday to record what I eat, and exercise and adapted it to reflect on my moods. This action catapulted me to write my Gratitude journal and graph out my moods on a weekly basis to report it to my doctor. All thanks to you!

  14. Hi Cassey! My name is Sarah and I am 17 years old, I’ve always noticed that my left bum cheek was smaller than my right but recently my left butt has become significantly smaller and I’ve become really self conscious about it. What can I do? Please help!
    Thank you x

  15. Casey,
    It doesn’t matter how many squats I do, how many miles I run, or how clean I eat, I can not lose or tone my legs. I don’t want to accept my shape because I feel like I can and should be able to change. I’m an hourglass shape, my weight is fine, but I hate my thighs. I feel embarrassed in jeans and in swim suits. I just want to be able to feel confident and not hate the way I look. What should I do?

  16. Hi Cassey,
    My name is Dorothy Madronich I have recently found out about your youtube channel and workout videos from a friend and I love them! I am currently a sophomore at California State University Sacramento and I work as a Residents Advisor. I love your videos so much that I really want to do a blogilates program where I play some of your videos in the rec room and invite residents to come and do a workout together. Of course there will have to be snacks so I would provide water and some sort of health snack to eat. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for some videos that would be good for a large group setting? I want all residents to feel welcome and would not want to to a video that would make a person feel uncomfortable about working out in a group. I look forward to hearing from you and I can not wait to do this program!

  17. hey cassey im Hannah and I would really like to lose some weight if you can give me some advice and tips I would really enjoy it

    kind regards Hannah x

  18. Hi Cassey!! I have to say I’m happy my friend mentioned about you and your workout videos! it has really helped me with my back a lot. I tend to hunch back a lot, since I was a kid, and I’m just learning how to position my lower back by simply doing the pilates for beginners video.I was wondering if there was some exercises you could do to fix back postures; for some reason I can’t seem to position my shoulder in the correct way :( . I seriously envy how straight your back is! lol, I have small curvature on the top part of my back I want to fix. please I would love your help!!! And seriously thank you for your awesome videos!! I love them!!!

  19. Thank you for letting us know.

  20. Cassey,

    You are my inspiration. I am currently an undergrad completing my B.A.. However, I realize that office jobs just aren’t for me. I’m planning on getting the CPR and CPT certification this summer. I also plan on getting the CPT by NESTA. I admire how driven you are to do what you love and the steps you took to achieve it.
    I hope to meet you one day!

    Thank you,
    Connie

  22. Hey Cassey
    I was just wondering… if I buy something from shop blogilates, will shipping cost extra? I live in South Africa so…
    Thanks!

  23. Hi just wanted to let you know that the 2015 fitness planner that I got has one of the ‘calendar’ pages upside down. Not a big deal but I just wanted to say something in case that was something that happened to all the books or if it was just mine. I still LOVE it though. :D

  24. Hey Cassey! I was wondering about how tall you are? And have you done a get to know me or ask me video before? :)
    I looove your videos, and they’re in my daily routine of workouts. haha

    – Simone

  25. Cassey! I started working out and making lifestyle changes this January because of the way I felt uncomfortable in my own skin and at first, I was only doing it to feel comfortable but I began to love it. A few months ago, I began occasionally using your videos as part of my workouts, and now I am SO hooked that I even downloaded your Decemburn calendar and it is brilliant. I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am to you for helping me stay motivated, because, you know, everyone has their bad days, and you’re the one who teaches me all the time that it’s okay.
    Thanks so much. Much love.

  27. Celena Courchaine says:

    Casey,

    I hope you know that you are truly an inspiration! I was just browsing through Pinterest and found a video of yours which soon started a new lifestyle! I’ve always been fairly fit, but never capable of keeping a habit for a long time. I’m not really sure what it is about your videos, but I am now working out daily and consistently doing so! The crazy thing is that I have to do it everyday! You are so great and genuine and I am so happy to have come across your blog! Thanks for being you :)

  28. oGorgeous says:

    Hi Savvy,

    We’re sorry about that. Could you please email us your order number?

    Thank you!

  29. Hello Cassie,
    I wanted to thank you for your videos. You’re a great help. I was starting to dispair about my belly and thought it was getting bigger and bigger. I started doing your workout about a month ago and it’s already showing top results. Somebody even wondered if I’d had an operation.
    You’re great and I love you videos.

  30. I had the exact same problem! i have the exact sane detox bottle as yourself and i loved it! Never have i put it in the dishwasher or even used hot water and the slogan began to smudge all over my hands and now its literally disappeared! It’s kind of a bummer really cus the slogan was my motivation!

  31. Wajiha Sharief says:

    HI CASSEY!
    I really feel bad doing this because I am such a big fan of yours. You’ve inspired me to change my life completely with your energy and workouts. I’m always motivated and always happy and energetic now thanks to you.
    I’m writing to you because I purchased a Detox Bottle on August 31, and it arrived September 7th. It was the Train Like a Beast Look Like a Beauty one. I immediately fell in love with it, and used it every single day. But after a week and a few days, so around Sept 15ish the purple writing started rubbing off. It would stain my hands and I would ignore it and assume it was nothing. But now some of the writing has completely rubbed off. I’ve never put it in the dish washer, I’ve only rinsed it out and set it to dry before I used it again the next morning. Do you know why this could have happened? I wouldn’t mind buying another one, maybe the one I got was a defect out of 500. But I wanted to ask.

  32. Hi Cassey,

    This is Chaitra from India.
    I must tell you, you have made fitness and exercise so simple and doable. Your words in the videos are so motivating. Thanks for all the good work.
    I feel amazed to see you so committed to fitness.
    Hats off!!!

  33. Hi Cassey could you please do a video about chia seed? I got a lot of co-workers recommending it to me but I’m a bit iffy about it. It seems too good to be true.

  34. Hi, I”m trying to download the meal plans, but I can’t seem to do it. I put in the correct password and nothing happens. I don’t really have the extra money around to buy the journal and plan and was wondering if anyone can help me get the other weeks plans.
    Thank you.

  35. Hi,
    I’m no nutritionist or dietitian, but maybe if you’re having trouble feeling sick from healthy things you’re eating in the morning, try doing dinner instead. Ease yourself into eating healthy, but start with dinner and work your way backwards in the day. That way, after dinner, you can go to sleep, and hopefully that sick feeling will pass.
    I would also say that you might have a sensitivity or intolerance to something that you’re eating, if you’re feeling that sickly from something that you’re eating. Do you keep trying with the same healthy recipe or similar healthy recipes? Maybe try something completely different and see if that changes anything. I know I tried to eat healthy for a long time and just kept getting sicker, until I figured out that I have a high intolerance to nuts, apples, and broccoli. It took a long time to figure that out though, so don’t get too discouraged. You could always try talking to a dietitian or your doctor as well.
    Keep trying, and don’t give up!! You can do this :) Make sure you’re getting some physical activity in too. That usually helps me feel better (although not while I’m working out. Sweat = EW.)
    Hope this helps!

  36. HI Cassey!
    In a first time i’m french so sorry for my english!! ;)
    i just want to tell you that your videos are very great et give me every day motivation to change my mind on my life ….

    So thank you for your energy , your smile and your joy
    i’m going to continue et follow my own way

    Have a good day xoxo

  37. Cassie ,
    I have been in fitness my whole life. I’m older now, love your workout clothes. Could you design some thing like shorts a little longer and shirts with cap sleeves. I always look for workout clothes like this and can’t find it. That’s what I would design.
    Thanks and congrats on your success.

  41. Andrea Taylor says:

    Hey Cassey!
    I discovered your Youtube channel and videos after I suffered a miscarriage in May, I needed to get into shape again and your videos helped me so much with that and keeping busy during that difficult time. I completed all of your beginner July calendar when I found out that I am once again pregnant! I am praying all goes well this time and that I will remain in healthy shape for my baby. It would mean the world to me if you would make a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester pregnancy workout that I could follow as I am no longer able to do many of your intense workouts and abdominal workouts. Please consider! Thank you so much! You are such an inspiration to me (and my husband loves you as well!)

    yeah, i dont know it either……. could you tell me please…………..?

  43. Hey Cassie. I’m 17 and love your videos. I just recently found them. I would love for you to come and meet me and my mom. I ‘m training her and maybe you could help. I live in Port Angeles, Washington.

  44. Hi Cassey!! Just wanted to say I recently discovered you on youtube and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your vids! You are so funny and genuinely a positive person. It’s like you send me good vibes via internet! LOL You have inspired me to get up and get moving, oh and to eat clean too. Thanks a bunch!! Keep up the amazing work!! <3

  45. Ana Raquel says:

    Dear Cassey,

    I just wanted to say thank you. You have been a great inspiration for me! Thanks to you I have been learning to love my body and eat cleaner and healthier.

    Greetings from Panama!
    Keep inspiring people!

  46. Hello, Stephanie! I just read your comment and felt like replying because I truly understand what you’re saying up there. I’m a vegetarian, too, and have the worst sweet-tooth ever, so I often find myself craving anything sweet that, most times, isn’t the healthiest option. It’s normal to feel discouraged when you don’t see immediate results, but have no doubts that you’ll definitely see your progress if you keep going instead of quitting. I understand that loving our bodies isn’t easy at times, but trying your best to think positive will definitely help you make this journey a lot easier because is not only a physical process but also a psychological one. As for the portion size issue you mention up there, I try to use smaller plates (if they’re of a color that contrasts the one of your food, even better!) and drink a glass of water before each meal. Also, try eating until you’re satisfied, not about to… you know, explode, and let your brain assimilate that yeah, your hunger’s been satisfied and, therefore, it doesn’t need any more food. Try drinking some tea, too! It’ll help reduce your cravings. Oh, and this is something I recently learned but I think it’s really useful: when you workout, truly enjoy it. Even if it’s so hard and you’re sweating, embrace it and try to have as much fun as possible!
    I hope this helps you as much as it helped me~

    Hello Cassey,
    I am Shermaine from SIngapore ! If you are looking at this , just want to say a great big fat THANK YOU for being so inspirational to me :) Thanks to you, I have been out of my depression. I have been gaining weight ever since i started university , hence losing alot of confidence and also getting sick very easily.

  48. Hi Cassey!

    I love watching your videos! Keep on being an inspiration! :D

  49. Carmelita says:

    Hi Casey!

    I just want to say that I love your positive outlook on life and you’re really motivational! Your videos have a way of picking up my mood even though they are a pain in the butt sometimes. I appreciate that you encourage people to have a healthy relationship with their bodies. So I came across a site where membership is exclusive and mainly based on appearances. Have you heard of beautifulpeople.com? It’s a social networking site where membership is based on looks. What is your take on this site? Is it shallow? silly? Legitimate? I’m pretty sure we can all agree on it being a little ridiculous but I wanted to hear your point of view.

  50. Melissa says:

    Hi! First off, I love your blog and I think what you’re doing is amazing. I know that when your body is used to being unhealthy and you suddenly change that, it shocks your body because it’s not use to that many vitamins, whole grain and stuff like that. so every time I try to eat healthy (like one of your recipes) I can’t last past noon without everything wanting to come back up, it just rejects it and I feel sick then I eat chips or something and I feel fine. It’s terrible and scary. Friends tell me to just ease into the change in diet but I don’t understand how to do that without falling back off again. Do you have any suggestions, tips or advice that could help me?

    Sincerely,
    Failing Before I Even Started

  53. Stephanie says:

    You will gain muscle if that’s what you’re going for :)

  54. Stephanie says:

    Hi Cassey! I have a question that I’m sure other people have asked you regarding diet. I am a vegetarian and need advice on how to lose to weight without eating meat. It’s hard for me to find meals without meats so I end up eating lots of junk food and gaining weight easily. I’ve never been good at managing my weight and have ended up dealing with eating disorders (not anymore). But clearly, I have issues controlling my food intake and portion size. I’m not fat, but I am in no way happy with my weight and appearance and tend to get discouraged when I workout because I don’t notice a difference right away. And of course I realize that it takes time to reach your ideal weight, but I find myself thinking about the body I had when struggling with an eating disorder and don’t see myself ever being that size again without the drastic measures I took to get it. I really just need motivation and advice on how to get fit and healthy.

    And I want to say thank you for all your videos and recipes! They help me so much and inspire me to keep working for what I want!!

  55. Thank you soooooooooooooo much,
    you are the best ,
    I start exercises week ago after long time recovery of my injury andIfeel great

    wish you the best
    god blass you

  56. Katherine says:

  57. I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS!!! And your story is truly awe-inspiring, you’re an amazingly inspirational person!!

  58. I have paid for everything with Tone It Up and I feel I’ve benefitted way more from you!
    The Tone it up girls are great of course but your positivity shines through and gives strength and you feel very genuine

  63. Emily Byrd says:

    You are such an inspiration Casey! Thank you for sharing your life and passion with so many of us!

  64. Danielle says:

    It would be so fun to come to a meet-up definitely keep us posted in advance on the next one!!! You should do a poll: Minneapolis anyone?

  65. Thank you so much! :D

  66. Deb Willman says:

    I love your workouts. They are hitting all those spots where I have extra skin hanging down. I am feeling sore but loving it as I know that your workouts are helping me get back into better shape. Keep it up girl!!! :)

  67. Cassey please come to VIRGINIA BEACH (Blogilates on the beach- how fun would that be!!) or the WASHINGTON DC AREA!!!!

  68. Hi Cassie!
    THank you so much for everything you do! Until I discovered blogilates I was never able to maintain a routine. You’re an inspiration! PLEASE come to DALLAS!!!!!! I dont know if you have but if so, please come again! lol.

  69. michelle says:

    cassey just wanted to say that in my opinion you are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than jillian michaels. i find her kind of judgemental and unkind; you are anything but, so caring and encouraging!

  70. I just found this blog yesterday and i cant stop watching the videos, i already went over onmy data usage (lol)! They are so much fun! I have been doing T25 and Chalean extreme, im gonna add these workouts in for an added boost! Thank you!
    Abby

  71. Enjoy working out with your videos.

    Was that you dancing with Kevin Bacon on Friday’s Jimmy Fallon Show?

  72. Oh baby doll <3 muscle never builds on top of fat. When you start to build muscle it helps burn the fat! Leah has got it on point, strength and cardio….and to be honest it should be mostly strength work outs and a bit of cardio.

    Good Luck?

  73. Pilates is all about toning so you can shape your body even if you don’t lose weight! You should do a combination of strength and cardio .

  74. Hey Cassey,

    PLEASE COME TO TORONTO!!!! PRETTY PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE :)

  75. This definitely isn’t for women only!! There aren’t a lot of guys who do it, but it will definitely help you health wise. Start with the beginners calendar and just take it slow, building up your strength will take time. Go ahead and get started!!

  76. Is this stuff for women only ? Im too overweight & hi blood psi { now on meds. } Im looking to get healthy w/out having a heart attack and this looks fun and doable. reply ? any help advice ? thanx

  77. Hi! I’m from Turkey :) i am 16 years old, 165 cm and 66 kg. I lost 6 kg so far with my own diet :D i’m still on a diet but i read something, it’s said that if you do exercises instead of fat burning, you will have muscles on your fats. And i thought that would look bad so i stopped doing hard exercises. I just walk and run and do some squats. Is it right? What should i do? What do you recommend? (By the way thanks for all the videos and apps)

  78. Hi! Just found your videos a few days ago and I love them! However, I see a lot of people here talking about how they’ve lost weight with the help of your videos. But I want to GAIN weight and I’m not really good at anything to do with excercising and stuff. So I’m wondering if these workouts (especially the butt/legs/thighs workouts) are actually for me if I want to gain weight?
    Thank you!

  79. Hi Cassey!
    Found you on youtube and not even sure how I was lucky enough to find you and your adorable videos! I just turned 50! I have been doing your workouts for a few months now! They are very challenging so I have to modify lots but still pushes me farther to keep trying! Thanks for you wonderful sunny attitude. I love your videos!

  80. Hi
    I am looking to start blogilates and get my unhealthy self in too shape haha, I was just wondering if the blogilates app is available for windows phones.
    Thank you
    Michelle

  81. Hey! So I have a question! I’ve followed your plan religiously for months and I havnt seen any results :( I exercise 5 times a week eat clean and drink a ton of water but the scale won’t budge and I don’t notice much definition change anywhere on my body?? What can I do to fix this? I’m stumped! Love the program though!

  82. Hi Cassey! I love your videos! You’re always so happy, energetic, and you love what you do. You really inspire me to work out, not only to lose weight, but to be healthy. I am on day nine of the beginner’s calendar and I’m already noticing that I’m gaining muscle! I really like Pilates because I live in Minnesota. It’s really cold right now and I can’t ride my bike for exercise. I’m aiming to lose 5-10 pounds by April 1 in time for vacation. Wish me luck!

  83. Hi Cassey,
    This is my first time on your blog and I have started the beginner’s workout calendar. I’m on my thirst day and i find it amazing!
    but i have some questions. on your calendar says everyday to woke up and do 1min plank, 10 roll ups, 10 burpees, 20 situps, and go on. I managed to find out what the two first was but can’t find the others. Where can I find and explanation about the others workouts to do, as I am a new member in all of this I am not familiarized with the names and I would love to do it! Thank from Spain.

  84. Hi Cassey,
    First of all thanks for what you are doing!! you are fabulous.
    Would yo do a face exercise? there are so many online but I would not trust them.

  85. Hi Emma
    Which videos did you did for 3 weeks?
    Thanks in advance

  86. Dear Cassey,
    I cannot express how grateful I am to have found you and blogilates! I’ve put myself on a diet and exercise regiment this year to whip myself into shape. It’s been about three weeks now and I’ve already lost an inch off of my waist and dropped one whole pant size! Without you and your upbeat workout videos I don’t know how I would have even made it this far. You inspire and motivate me. Thank you so much!!
    A very grateful soul,
    Emma :)

  87. Hey Cassey,

    So a few days ago i subscribed to a gym! I was very excited…
    But now i saw that when you’re younger then 16 you can’t go there without someone who’s older then 16. So my sister ( who’s 19 ) also subscribed to that gym, but then to another establishment and now it turns out that she can go to my establishment after she’s had her subscription for two months. So we can’t go there together which actually was our plan.. I’m really freaking out right now because i don’t know what to do.. Do you know if gyms make a big problem of it when you go there alone and you’re not 16 yet?

  88. How peculiar I actually found you searching for this pilates video by Mari Winsor.

  89. Tegan Payne says:

    Hey!!

    I am a massive fan! (something I bet you hear all the time) I was just wondering how much cardio you do a week? I love pilates but I feel like it’s not enough to just do that :) Thanks for changing my life xx

  90. Hey, Cassey!

    I really really hope that you’re fine! I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for your great inspiration! Now I absolutely want to get fit and to eat cleaner than usually!

    Greetings from Germany xo
    Take care!

    Cassey,
    It was great to see you post a picture with our beautiful little Polabear at Sundance. She was helping us promoting a documentary in the festival called Alive Inside. It’s a film about how music helps Alzheimer’s and dementia patients come back to life. A beautiful and amazing story that will change the way doctors treat Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. We had our Samoyeds with us to help get us in touch with people. We are so happy to see that Polabear there touched your heart and you posted a picture of her. She is our pet and so is Floppy Bear and I’ve included links to their social pages. Please if you don’t mind repost the picture or another and put down this information it would help us all greatly I’m sure you know this is a very important cause.

  95. Hey Cassey!
    You have been so amazing in my life.
    I’ve never been a “big” girl in my life, I was always really slim, and did dance for numerous years, but didn’t know how to be healthy…I struggled with eating disorders when I thought I wasn’t skinny enough, or thought it would help to make me appear more fit when I thought I wasn’t
    But one day I came across your videos and your bright personality and kindness made me realize that healthy doesn’t mean skinny, healthy is healthy, but eating clean, and actually listening to your body knowing what it wants versus what it needs…
    No one ever knew of my struggles with body image, but you helped me more than you know, in a short amount of time, you’ve raised my self-esteem to love my body and appreciate it for what it is.

    Even in your videos, talking to anyone who watched, it made me feel as if you were talking to me, instead of just telling me what to do, your energy was so high, I was happy to workout and enjoy doing your videos! You really inspire me to live a healthy happy life!!
    Thank you so much!! I’m never been so content and happy with not just my body but with my life, and to be happy as much as I can!

  96. A New POPster says:

    Hi Cassey! I learned about your blogilates app from a friend of mine. In high school I kept in shape by practicing martial arts regularly, but during and after college I fell away from it and couldn’t keep up the schedule. For 2014 I resolved to try out your month of beginner workouts in January, in addition to running regularly, to try and get back in shape. It’s only been a week but I already feel significantly better physically and emotionally than I did a short while ago. Your encouragement, friendliness, and positive attitude are contagious! Clearly I’m just one of many people you’ve helped over the years, and I’ve just started but I already feel that I should send a huge THANK YOU for the lessons, motivation, and positive message you’re sending. I know it’s not easy (even though you make it look that way). Hugs!

  99. Hey Cassey,
    My friend introduced me to your YouTube channel about 9 months ago. I’ve been chubby my entire life, and overweight since, well, probably “technically” since I can remember, but I’ve always had a long torso and bulky quads & hamstrings, so “normal” height/weight ratios don’t really fit with my natural build.

    Anyway, since starting college, things have gotten kind of out of hand. I’ve been religiously pre-med since the beginning, and when you double that with being a physics major, that leads to a lot of stress-eating and not much time to exercise, and I gained something like 40 lbs in the first 2 years. I’m now in my senior year and last semester I learned that I LOVE going to the gym. But when it’s cold out, and the gym is on the opposite side of campus, it can be a bit of a drag. And though I love my workouts, I often end up doing the same thing day after day.

    With a little bit of help from your videos, Cassey, I’m hoping to maintain a good workout regimen & see if I can’t make the cafeteria food work for me somehow. Thanks so much for doing all of this for us – for free!

  100. forst of all you are amazing. you make worksouts less painful more fun :) just wanted to ask you what do you think about bread in the diet.? i could live with bread but i know it is fattening

  101. Hi casey, im a 14 year old from Australia and i do 3 of your workouts each day ! IM IN LOVE WITH THEM. i really enjoy pilates and would one day like to become an instructor myself. Could you upload another ab workout because i’ve done all of yours and its kinda boring doing the same ones everyday!! thank <3

  102. Cassie you are so motivational and beautiful!!!
    I was super into gym and cardio for ages and then got sick and somehow training stopped for almost 6 months, you’ve made me motivated again to train hard and eat clean! Have subscribed to your youtube and am looking forward to doing your other workouts (at the moment my fav is the call me maybe squat challenge) :)
    Love from Australia!

  103. cekavazosia says:

    you should do every video on that day, For example, on the 2nd December you have to do the new video, legs for days cardio, work B* abs, Abs on fire and Miley Cyrus abs : )
    Good luck on the 12 week challenge! I started it too ^^

  104. stephanie williamson says:

    how do the calendars work… whats listed is to do that day or to choose witch work out do? i am starting the 12 week new body makeover tomorrow.

    please help me with this question.

    thanks

  105. No way to get out of the lunch, but you don’t want to screw your diet up.
    You must get the individual plan with the help of the dietician.
    Its alright though, your about to learn some real solid advice that’s free of charge and will
    serve you well on your quest to getting in shape.

  106. The password is on her most recent video on her Youtube account :))
    I haven’t gotten an email either though

  107. ok i am getting pretty irritated. I signed up for the new body makeover, purchased the fit journal, set up a you tube account, joined the newsletter and still have not received a password to get into the body makeover. Can someone please help me.

  108. Cassey, You’ve truly inspired me. You literally made me who I am today. Around three years ago I was 14, weighing 130 pounds while being only 4’10” tall. I discovered Blogilates while searching in Youtube for some fun exercises. I’ve been doing your videos rigorously for a little more than three years now and I’ve never felt better. I’m weighing around 98 pounds and everyone noticed my transformation thanks to you. CASSEY YOU ARE TRULY THE BEST, YOU MAKE PILATES AND EVERY EXERCISE FUN AND I THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU, WITHOUT FULLY KNOWING, HAVE DONE FOR ME. -Julianna from Puerto Rico

  109. Hi Cassey,
    Been watching some of your youtube videos and followed some moves. Really interesting and motivating. My body mass has been fluctuating and am slowly losing the curves these few months – stressed from work and planning my wedding! Ive really tried to keep track my meals and keep a food journal but my discipline is ZERO. Ive recently moved after getting married and the neighbourhood is wonderful! A park to run, 2 fitness corners and even a nearby gym which is a 5min run frm my place… Wanted to go back to my workout regime but my dad passed away last week and have spending alot of time grieving with my mum. Anyway, 2 nights back I read ur post on ur upcoming journal and am so thrilled that finally a fitness/wellness community is doing this TOGETHER. So, i purchased the journal and here i am waiting for it to be delivered. Meanwhile, im gonna start swinging my bells first thing tmr AM. Im gonna keep a journal of the total number of swings i can do with an 8kg kettlebell from Nov 16 to Dec 16. Oh btw, I love your POP HIITS. Gonna do one of them after swinging my bells. Its good to know that you incorporate kettlebells too. Every lady should lift. It is sexy! Now, im gonna put on my moisturing mask and have a good night sleep.
    Speak to you again.
    Yours in health and fitness,

  110. Wow Cassey! I just stumbled on your site and I’m obsessed! I’m really loving your recipes, can’t wait to try some of those desserts Thanks for great content! -Sarra

  111. Hi Cassey.

    I have been into fitness and healthy eating for some time now and had been doing extremely well. I was never over weight but when I was in my early 20’s I realised I needed to get fit and eat better so I began bootcamp classes, along with walking, which eventually turned into running. About 6 weeks ago I had an injury to my back, which was caused from wear and tear along with some weight sessions during bootcamp. My SI joint popped out and I discovered I have a low grade bulging disk. As a result I have been advised against my bootcamp classes. I was devestated over this as not only were they great for cardio and toning, but I also enjoyed the fun I had with the other class members, as I had made some good friends along the way.

    Another worry for me was that I wouldn’t have the motivation to work out myself at home. I always found it easier paying in advance for a class as even I was having a bad day I would make myself go so I wouldn’t lose out, as opposed to just sitting infront of the TV for the evening. Thankfully I have been able to return to running however I needed something to keep me toned.

    I discovered your blog while searching for Pilates videos. I have just completed day one and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I can definitely feel my muscles burning after it, but as they say no pain no gain :) Thanks for taking the time to post these and help people like me get back into fitness.
    I’m already looking forward to completing day two.

    Your blog has made it all the way to Ireland, and I will definitely be telling friends about it.

    Keep up the good work and looking forward to more classes with you along the way :)

  112. Hi Cassey!! I love you so much. I saw in some comments that you’re helping out in some people’s health and weight loss. And I really needed help… please help me! :(
    Here’s my story.
    Last year in 2012, that’s when I started taking note of my body and how much I’ve gained weight because since young I was always that skinnier girl in the family who can eat almost anything and everything and still be slim but when puberty hits me, I gained so much fats that I evem cried. So I worked out every day and changed my diet drastically and lost 6kgs in like 9 months. Amazing but I didn’t know I was doing it the wrong way because I got really skinny and I lost my period…
    Then after 1 month of holidays I gained 5kgs back but back to the normal average weight. But I’ve gotten fatter again. And flabby. Now I’m still doing cardio like running and elliptical 5 to 6 days a week while doinh some weights. I try to eat mostly lots of fruits n veggies and lean meats like fish chicken turkey. But I don’t know why I’m still not lpsing weight because my shorts are getting tighter!!! Help me… I do blogilates too!

    Xo

  113. i absolutely love this

  117. Devon Moretti says:

    Hi Cassey,

    I’m currently writing a paper for my college English class on my future career which is becoming a personal trainer. I have to have five sources, one being an interview. I was wondering if I could interview you by asking questions through email? Please email me of you are willing!
    Thank you,

    Devon :)

  118. Love it love it……it started with me finding you on youtube for a trx exercise, the legercize video, went from there to the 2 ingredient cookie, then found your website and now I’m addicted. I have your app on my phone and tablet. You are the BOMB Cassey, I can’t get enough. You are a one stop shop. I just want to thank you. I love your energy, humor and all that you offer as far as getting into shape. Thank you thank you thank you……and in a couple months my husband will be thanking you when I have an awesome boooty…..

  119. I LOVE YOU ! every morning i do your pilates workouts. Im 14 and started doing yoga recently and i’m hooked. I do track most days but i find pilates balances it all out and gives you an even better body then lifting weights ! You’re so bubbly and i love you !

  120. Hi Cassey,

    I’m from Chile and this week I’ve been found your videos.. I’ d loved it
    Many thanks for them. Every day from last monday I’ve been doing 2 classes Iam very happy..
    :)

  121. Hi Cassey,
    I am a 22 year old mom of twins and thanks to your workouts I have a better body than I have ever had in my life and mind you I did sports all my life, but I have never been this toned before. I am completely obsessed with your workouts! I tell all my friends about you!!
    I love you, you’re such an inspiration :)
    Thank you

  122. Hi Cassey,
    I am a nearly 50 year old faithful follower of yours, and after years of trying to find an exercise routine I actually see results to, I finally found you with thanks to my niece, and am seeing definition and muscle form on my legs ( I am very small up top & mid section) ! I will continue to use your great websites as well as the iphone app I have to carry you with me at all times!
    What I really need help with is eating! I don’t know if you can answer, but I want to get into better eating, I am phobic about food! I don’t eat red meat, and eat chicken occasionally. I have issues with my stomach & digesting food, which makes me get a little fearful on some foods. Thus, I loose energy and become winded sometimes when I do your workouts. I wondered if you could suggest some choices to help with energy?
    Also, there is a Trader Joe’s opening soon in my area, what is the possibility of having a grocery list on your phone app to carry along with the other great choices on there? Just a thought?
    So, in conclusion, I thank you so much for your great workouts, and all the motivation you give! Especially to us older folks :-)
    With kind regards,
    Kristin Espinal

  123. I love u workouts ,u r a great trainer and I love u website

  124. I am 50 and my daughter showed me your page. I hope it will also help my back -aches. And of course let me look as young as I feel! Thanks for your motivation, yes, I’m dieing and it is fun.

  125. Savanna Stiefel says:

    Hi Cassey!
    I just want to say you are an amazing trainer!! I just recently got back into working out, I am a full time college student and I am a part time hostess at Bone Fish Grill (which is in FL, and is owned by the same owners as Outback) and i really did not have the time for conventional workout plans that took over an hour to do. i have never done Pilates or yoga always did the same boring workouts i saw in magazines or in books. But I came across one of your workouts on Pinterest and i thought “maybe I should give this a shot” so I did and I LOVED IT!! It was probably the only type of workout that really made me notice a difference in how i workout and how everything should feel when you actual do the exercise right. Your workouts make me feel amazing and not gross or like I want to throw up!
    I just wanted to let you know you are amazing and I am officially in love with Pilates or Blogilates in this case.
    I can not wait to continue on with your beginners workout program and cant wait to ACTUALLY see some real results!
    Thank You again
    Once again you are awesome!
    Savanna Stiefel

  126. I was wondering if you or your staff was interested in doing a story about eating healthy on set or the woes of working in a skinny world!

    Here’s a little more about me!
    http://www.nettiedavis.com
    http://fat2fine.tumblr.com/

  127. I’ve been working out for over a month now and I’ve felt so good ever since I started. I’ve been trying to find a type of sport, fitness you know anything that would fit me. I tried running but that wasn’t for me, I tried insanity which was amazing but hard but Pop pilates is something that suits me. It’s fun and makes me feel fit and graceful and you motivate me daily into being healthier which makes me live happier!
    Thanks Cassey, I hope to enjoy your fun personality and brilliant work-outs for many more months – no years to come!
    xx

  128. All to be said is thank you, your amazing Cassey

  129. I kept my breath until the end, you are just a.m.a.z.i.n.g, and so is your hard work for us all!!!

  130. Your videos are great! With my ex roommate, we worked out together at home a few times, but it never became a habit, lack of motivation, and we weren’t really looking for the same things (she wanted to tone and slim down and I wanted more curves). Two years later (a few weeks ago), we spoke on the phone and realized that we both work out several times a week with YOUR videos. So we worked out together with your videos and it was lots of fun.
    I actually started pilates last year at a great school but had to stop because of money problems and looked for videos on youtube to practice what I had learned. I alternated between a few and finally stuck to yours because of your fun style, it’s more motivating.
    I actually have a few requests and I don’t know if this is the place to put it…
    1- I love your back attack video but it’s getting kind of easy for me. COuld you do more back videos, maybe something relating to POSTURE?
    2- How about a stretching video for posture also?
    3- It would be fun to have a video using those bands to stretch or give resistance.
    4- Could you do a video to work out the pelvic floor? I heard pilates is great for that.
    thanks so much and keep up the amazing work :)

  131. As someone who spends most of their free time in front of a computer gaming, I probably would have never heard of blogilates until my girlfriend showed me. Though now after 2 weeks of trying out the different ab and glute workouts and whipping up a few recipes, I am hooked. I admit doing some of these workouts were way out of my comfort zone, but eventually it became a fun way to exercise, even if my butt is dying. One recipe I could not stop making were the flourless protein pancakes! They not only tasted excellent, but I was able to use them to make sandwiches, so good!! Overall this was a completely new experience and I’m proud to say that only after 2 weeks I’m starting to notice some results! :)

  132. Hi Cassey! First off I LOVE what you do it is, in one word, AMAZING. Thank you!! My favorite has been your bikini blasters series. Everything about it was perfect it was fun and gave me a rockin bod! I am commenting to ask if you could PLEASE do another series as intense as this one it was incredible. Keep doing what you do happiness is to serve others and for this blog you truly do. It is part of what makes you and individually great human being.
    Love,
    Victoria

  133. What’s Taking place i’m new to this, I stumbled upon this
    I’ve found It positively helpful and it has aided me out loads. I’m hoping to give a contribution & help other customers like its aided me.
    Good job.

  134. Try following the 90 day meal plan. if you are a beginner, you can try the beginners calender and then start following the monthly calenders. after the 90 days, feel free to repeat the calender til you get to your ideal weight.
    If you want to add variety to the meal plan, try skinnytaste.com

  135. If you eat healthily and exercise, then yes you will probably lose weight! Eat clean 80% of the time and then go a lit crazy for the other 20% or a meal/snack! If you don’t want your calves to get any bigger-don’t do the calve exercises, skip them or do something else. Cardio is a really good way of losing weight and so is weight lifting- I am a huge fan of weight lifting because I don’t like long cardio sessions like running. I also really like HIIT, which is quick easy and really effective!
    Good luck on your journey and remember to stay happy- if you are tired or (truely) hungry, then listen to your body, it gives you lots of signs that can help your performance! :)

  136. I blog frequently and I genuinely thank you for your information.
    The article has really peaked my interest. I’m going to book mark your site and keep checking for new information about once per week. I subscribed to your RSS feed as well.

  137. oh and my calves are very big, its all muscle.I dont know if it will build more muscle if I do more calve exercises?

  142. Hey Cassey,

    I am just starting the beginners calendar and my body is sore all over, I mean sitting down is a struggle. I was wandering if you could do an episode on cheap clean eats for breakfast smoothies that keep you full till lunch?

    Thanks a bunch

  143. Hi Cassey, I have been trying to sign up to your newsletter for a week now. I think the link doesn’t work, could you please help?

  144. Very nice write-up. I absolutely love this site.
    Stick with it!

  145. Hey Cassey,

    I just wanted to say how much I love your website, videos, and workout/meal calendars. I’ve recently started the beginners workout calendar and I’m loving it. I just wanted to ask a healthy meal question: Is couscous bad for you?

  146. Good post. I am dealing with some of these issues as well.

    HI Cassey, I just wanted to say how inspirational you are. I’m 16, overweight and have tried so many times to try and lose weight but have never had the motivation to stay consistent with the exercise and healthy eating. This is the longest I’ve ever stuck to it and thank you, because its all down to you. I generally look forward to doing your videos everyday and I can say I’m finally feeling more comfortable with myself as I’m starting to notice a difference. So, thanks again!

  150. Hi Cassey!

    I just wanted to tell you that you are so motivating and inspiering. I’ve ben wanting to workout for a long time and started but I’ve always quit because I never had motivation.
    And I want you to know that you’ve help me to realise that of course I need to train like a beast to look like a beauty and then that I can workout hard through my bad times in life instead of cutt myself or smoke or whatever. Maybe it sounds lame but it’s true.
    The way you motivates me on has inspired me to keep doing your workouts to get to my goal to look like a beauty, to be proud of my body.
    I’ve also had thoughts about maybe start doing videos about training to motivate people like me. And especially get people that are depressed or something else to train like a beast instead of doing bad stuff.

    I’m so sorry for my bad english, I’m from Sweden but I hope you read this and maybe leave a comment on my blog. I will be very happy if you did :)
    Love you :)

  151. Casey! You are so fantastic! I’m in love with your site. Every morning when I wake up I turn on my computer to check what you up to, and what’s on the agenda! I use to be a gymnast I was training for the Olympics when I fell and broke my back. It was a miracle that I can walk today.
    Unfortunately I started gaining weight and became so depressed. Your site has motivated me to start exercising and lose weight, due to fact that Pilates was recommended by my doctor! I have already lost 10KG. It is hard work but it’s so worth it. Thank you Casey!

  152. You look amazing. Just goes to show how much hard work and dedication truly works! Keep it up and keep inspiring all of us to do the same. Thanks!

  153. Cassey!! I just now found your blog when I was looking for a healthy pizza recipe! Love your recipes and workouts! I am actually a personal trainer in Birmingham, AL but am moving to LA in the next month!! I am super nervous but excited at the same time.. I will have to come take your class.. I even thought about training at Equinox.. If you ever need some help please contact me!! Also for your bikini comp. did you ever post your workouts? I saw your meal plan but didn’t know if you posted your workout plan! Thanks!! Please email me I would love to have some friends when I head to LA! :)

  154. Greetings from Brazil!!!.. Thank you Cassey!!!

  155. I have never known I could work out like that before and it was the best week I have had so far. I have only been doing this for a week so far and I tried Cassey’s home made banana ice cream cookies they were delicious.

  156. Cassey, your videos and your calendars are a fitness treasure! I’ve been working through the June and July calendars and I see such a difference in my strength and cardio fitness. Thank you for producing a high quality resource and allowing people to use it for free. I recommend you to all of my friends!

  157. Hi Cassey,

    I recently found your workouts on YouTube and am hooked! I have suffered from lower back pain due to bulging discs–too much performance dance over the years–and have tried everything from chiro, PT and yoga (forget the downward facing dogs and swan dives, that pushes the bulging discs right into my spine, ouch!) But with Pilates I seem to have found a form of exercise that strengthens the core and doesn’t aggravate those nasty discs. I was wondering if you might consider putting together a beginner/intermediate-level Pilates video dealing with lower back pain for those of us who need to continue the back strengthening. Thank you! Alicia

    Hey Milla!
    I am not Cassey, but just know that your weight is NOT a big deal, people who are making fun of you ?
    They may have a fast metabolism and be slim, but in a few years, it’s gonna be different.
    You really seem to have a lot of motivation, but make sure that you are doing all of this for yourself and not for anybody else.
    Remember that it’s a lot about what you eat, but also portions. Now I’m not telling you to be super strict, you don’t even need to count calories, listen to your body and be careful when it comes to emotional eating.
    Don’t forget to respect your body, it’s the most important thing. You can look good and be overweight, beauty =/= weight. You can try and follow Cassey’s calendar, they are really helpful for me, don’t expect instant change, but I promise you in the long run, you will see change.

    Respect yourself, you are strong & beautiful and ignore everyone making fun of you, they’re not confident.

  159. Chzarlotte says:

    I’m trying to get back on my old routine of working out. I am currently rebuilding myself with the Beginner’s Calendar and have just successfully finished Day 2! I don’t eat clean but I do drink lots of water, green tea and snack occasionally. Cassey, you are my role model and idol. When I couldn’t find motivation to start working out again, I got on Blogilates and told myself that Cassey can help me. Thank you so much for your workouts, meal plans, tips and tricks to help me get back on track! :)

  160. THIS IS IMPORTANT…………………….
    hey Cassey , so i am under 16 years old but i am over my healthy weight with 15 kilos.that’s a lot i know but seriously i don’t know how did i get here i was always the skinny kid.i am one of those hard weight losers that means i don’t lose wight quickly not at all in fact i lose it slowly maybe it’s me genes my mother also gains weight quickly and she is overweight too . but i don’t what to do anymore half of my cloth fit me exactly some of them are even tight many people make fun of me and i get so jealous when i see skinny girls eating what they want and wearing pretty things while i can barely find things my size in the shops. i workout and eat about 85% healthy. i need help really i do and schools are starting at 8 september. i want to look good by then.

  161. I found this website after looking for some stretching routines to help me do pilates. I just started, and am a MAJOR beginner. This website is amazingly made. The concept and organization of this website really shows how intelligent and business-savvy Cassey is. I’m excited to start tomorrow!

  162. I would love to sign up for the newsletter, but it says my email address is wrong. I restyled it several times. The address is correct. What shall I do?
    Thanks!

  163. Hi Cassey! Just want to say thanks for doing all of your wonderful videos. You have inspired me to try pilates and eat better! I love your upbeat, bubbly personality, it (just!) gets me through those tough workouts haha :)

  164. Sarah N says:

    Hi Cassey!! I love all of your posts and videos and was browsing the site when I realized you updated this section. Your story and how open and honest you are really inspires me and I truly believe you are a great role model for girls (and guys too!) everywhere. Just a suggestion even though I know you are always super busy with everything, but when I was looking above I saw that Jillian Michaels has a few books and I would really love if you wrote a book! It may sound weird, but when I read your posts I can hear your voice in my head and having you in book form would be amazing!

    So please, please, please consider writing a book??

    Love you so much and thanks for all you do!

  165. Jenny Nguyen says:

    Hi Cassey! My friend has been telling me about this fitness/weight loss thing called Intermittent Fasting. What are your thoughts on this type of diet/exercise?

  166. Hey there,

    I’m really impressed where you’ve taken this. That old east coast gig was a turning point for you!

    Rock on!

  167. Natalia says:

    I never knew you did other amazing things other than pilates, truely inspirational. I hope to find something that I am as truely as passionate as you are for what you do!

  168. First off – oh my god I never knew there were adorable yoga bags out there. I need to get one asap! I live in the gym and always wanted a cuter bag since I am always using it.

    Secondly, I read your story and it really inspires me. I am training for my first bikini competition and have decided that health and fitness is where I belong and want to make it my career. I’ve started with working on my blog to gain popularity and plan to go to school to become certified in personal training and nutrition. Reading your story just pumped me up and I can’t wait to see my work in a magazine!!

  169. It’s so nice to actually read an updated “about me” about you…whoa weird wording here (whoa alliteratio here lol)…

  170. Thank you for all of your effort and consistent positivity. It’s been absolutely thrilling for me to finally find a fitness idol that I can relate to and feel inspired by.

  171. I cried watching this, there really are amazing people following you…
    I´m so happy youre happy cause you truly desserve it Cassey, I love you so much!

  173. Hi Cassey!
    You are the absolute best! I have a whole stack of your youtube videos on a playlist and loved having a POP workout of 10mins so readily available. You are incredibly giving and I love you for it :):) Also, I have never had the experience of laughing so hard during an exercise video and you do it to me all the time, in fact i rewind a lot of the videos just to hear your killer comments! BOOTY SLAP! LOL Love your work, Sharanya xxx

  174. michelle says:

    hi cassey, can you do more calves and arms exercise?.I really love your videos and it really works.Hope you do more videos and also healthy food videos.=]

  175. Hi Cassey! You are such an inspiration to me. I used to eat a lot of junk food, didn’t drink lots of water and settled for sugary sodas instead and I just didn’t exercise at all which didn’t improve my weak lungs. I got a cold so easily, had bronchitis a lot and wheezed every time I ran for PE. But now, I have been getting slimmer thanks to you and eating clean and my lungs’ condition have been getting better and better. No more wheezing and colds? I don’t get them that easily anymore! So thank you, thank you, thank you and THANK YOU! You inspire me to live healthily and to love food and not shun it. I’m living a happier life now and I couldn’t have done it without you. You are far too awesome :3

  176. Hi Cassey.. I just wanted to know if you’re going to make another fitness calender for July. I started really late on the June beginners fitness challenge calender thing and i want to start on a tough advanced July one and finish it :D maybe a meal plan too, i’m thinking of eating clean! :D sooo Yay ok bye i love you cause you’re spiffy!! BYYYYEEEEEE

  177. Hello Cassey!

    I really want to thank you, you’ve been the butt kicking I needed to start again.

    I was in the military before, and whn I quit, I started eating less healthy and working out less… Result: I’M flabby and bloated… Also bigger than even…

    I started again this week with Blogilates meals ideas and workouts!

    Thank you so much and keep on the good work!

  178. I just have to say Casey before you I was so sad and unhappy but now I feel so happy and energetic and alive without you I would’ve spent the rest of my life wondering if I should do something but now I realize how strong I am and I am so proud of myself and my toned body I have not yet even reached my goal tho !!!! I hope you read this because that would be my dream come true also if you replied back CASSEY HO. You have changed my life .when I am doing something hard or whatever you know I think ughhh it’s to hard I should stop and then I remind myself of how strong I am and how strong you are and I remind myself you would cheer me on and tell me to challenge my self . Thank you cassey so much <3

  179. Hi Casey…love your videos, you are a ray of sunshine! Could you please please please make a video on how to slim down calves and get rid of cankles? I used to be very athletic and developed large muscles in my thighs and calves and now that I have gained weight and got out of shape I want to transform my body from a former muscular one that turned flabby into a lean thin sexy one. Please help me get rid of my huge calves and cankles so that I can finally wear some high boots!
    -Rach

  180. Hi Cassey! I love love love your workouts even though they kill me. What size mat do you use? I am going to buy one but unsure about what thickness to get so thought i would comment and ask my fav fitness guru!

  181. Ive always been so lazy and anti-exercise because I have never had a weight problem and never felt the need to. I came across your videos on Youtube about a week ago and now I am OBSESSED! You truely turned me into a believer, a lover, and an addict for exercise. I want to thank you so much for changing my life, my health, and my adittude. I can’t even work out without using one of your videos, you are so inspiring and the random talk makes me forget what Im doing. My new fav saying “Train insane, or remain the same!”

  182. Hi Cassey!

    I just stumbled upon this website yesterday (literally found it on stumble upon.com) and immediately began your beginners work out calendar! Today was my second day and I already feel sore. I used to do pilates and ballet years ago so I really enjoy your workouts, and I love how you laid out all the videos and made them easy to access. I honestly look forward to waking up every morning and doing your next video. Gonna tell my roommate about this site so she can do it too!
    Thanks again. You are awesome and such an inspiration!

  183. Hey Cassey!
    Your videos are great! i love to train with these videos – you are such an inspirating person!! i dont know how you are so fit! respect!! :D
    you are my ideal ;)
    thx a lot :)

  184. I just like the valuable info you supply on your articles.
    I will bookmark your blog and test again here regularly.
    I’m moderately sure I’ll be told a lot of new stuff right
    right here! Good luck for the following!

  185. You have to sign up for her newsletter and she’ll send you an email with the password for the workout. Have fun doing the workouts! :P

  186. Hi Cassey! When I’m trying to open “your may calendar” it says that iI have to put there my password. What does it mean? Sorry I don’t get it:D BTW I love your videos!

  187. I absolutely lovvvve your workout regime! Thank you so much for putting them on YouTube for the rest of us to discover you!! I am so sore almost right when I’m done with your workouts! It’s hard for me to feel challenged like p90x did, but your vids rose to the occasion! You have succeeded in kicking my rear! YOUCH! But a ‘good’ “YOUCH”! Lol. Soooooo SO glad to have found you Cassey Ho!!

  188. Hi Cassey! You really inspire me? Can I ask how much do you weight in the first picture? That one which you are wearing a pink bra. It’s my “motivation picture”! :) How did you get in that shape? Did you follow the 90 days challenge meal and workout plan? Keep up the good work!

  189. Hello to every , as I am genuinely keen of reading this website’s post to be updated on a regular basis. It consists of fastidious information.

  190. Hey there! I just would like to give you a big thumbs up for the great info you have here on this post.
    I’ll be returning to your web site for more soon.

  191. Vince Hannah says:

    Go Poets! 562 Baby! My GF loves your videos, has helped her get motivated and get much more fit?

  192. Having read this I thought it was very enlightening. I
    appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this
    content together. I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and posting
    comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  193. Amanda says:

    Hey, Cassey! I’m new to your POP Pilates and I’m loving it! For about a month and a half now, I’ve been doing cardio for 20+ minutes with your pilates to follow it, and I’m trying to eat clean as much as possible. Unfortuantely, I haven’t lost any weight yet. Any tips to help lose the weight? Thanks!

  194. You have made some really good points there. I checked on the web to learn
    more about the issue and found most people will
    go along with your views on this site.

  195. Hey Cassey! I just stumbled upon your workouts through youtube a few days ago and I’ve been doing at least 2 videos a day since then! I’m hooked. Do you have any recommendations for how I can build core strength up again after two c-sections. I’m in relatively good shape but my lower core strength is just shot after having two kids and I find it hard to do a lot of the ab exercises. Is there anexercise I can start with that’s easier to build strength?

  196. Hi Cassey! I just signed up for your newsletter because I have decided to challenge myself to complete your monthly May calendar. I have always been naturally thin so I’ve never pushed myself to work out but after exploring your videos I would like to see what results I can get when trying to make my body strong not just skinny! I just completed the longest workout I’ve ever done using today’s videos on the April calendar. I feel very sweaty, proud, and excited to prepare for my big training month in May! Thanks for the inspiration!

  197. Katie Greenlaw says:

    Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me the measurements for the size small booty shorts? The ones that say “Keep going”

  198. GCassey! Your videos are amazing and I do them with my friends in college every night. But I have a question. What do you snack on when youhave those urges? I have a problem with binge eating and have been fighting it and got better though.

  199. Cassey your videos are so motivating and your bubbly personality makes the workout routines a lot more fun!! :D The work that you do and the passion that you have to deliver to your viewers is very inspiring. Keep up the good work!!!

  200. Hi Cassey,

    I have stumbled upon your video randomly two evenings ago and since than I have a fun way to exercise at home! I am already on the slim side but sitting long hours in an office environment the last couple of years have taken its toll on some of the biggest muscles on my body, my thighs and glutes.

    With summer right around the corner, I have re-started my membership at the gym (once to twice a week) and working out at least half an hour worth of your videos (all the remaining 5-6 days!). Your videos are so fun and I hope that one day I can get my body to the point I am comfortable enough to wear those cute shorts just like you!

  201. Veronica says:

    I just stumbled upon your youtube recently and I’m still on day 1 of my routine but thank you! It’s sooo hard since I don’t really have a lot of strength but you keep me motivated and your songs are really catchy so I get so pumped. Thanks so much Cassey!

  202. Thank you Cassey.
    I just finished your beginner Pilates YouTube class.
    You are a motivating and amazing woman.
    Keep your fire burning.

  203. Just wanted to say a word of thanks for creating these videos. I haven’t been able to get to the gym these past couple of days and your workouts have certainly helped me. They are hard. They are fantastic. Consider me a fan.

  204. Thank you soooooooo muchhh for everything! I wish you all the love in the universe!

  206. Hey Cassey,
    I’m a year 12 Student at Nazareth Catholic College in Australia, I’m doing a compulsory research project in order to get my certificate of education. My research project is on “What impact does branded sports clothing have on young women’s self-esteem and motivation to exercise?”
    I am in the last stages and have been doing your workouts for months online but it didn’t even occur to me that i could try and contact you. I was wandering if i was able to send you through some questions via email for you to answers regarding how clothing motivate young women to do exercise. If you can would you possibly be able to reply to me ASAP, with an email address i can send the questions to.
    Thanks,
    Holli

  207. Hello Cassey,

    My daughter got me to look at your you tube videos and i am so excited to get started i have a lot of self esteem issues and don’t like to work out around any one or at gyms really to many good looking people who i think are always looking at me like” what is that fat ass doing here” So i am interested in trying some of your workout Pilates videos and i have taken like 1 class before but i really need to make a change i am a diabetic and i have migraines and i am asthmatic as well I have a lot of issues and i really hope i can get off my butt and make better choices and look better doing it as well thank you and God Bless

  208. Hi Cassey,

    I’m a huge fan of your video workouts. Having done Pilates for years I know how expensive classes can be and am so glad I stumbled across your challenging and varied workouts online! While I’m not always as self-motivated as I’d like to be when it comes to keeping fit and toned, your combination of exercises and dynamic teaching style always help me to stick it out no matter how much my thighs or abs are burning in the process :)

  209. Valeria says:

    Hey Cassey,
    I am not a fan type of person actually but I have to admit that I totally admire you. Love your workouts so much and because of The great amount of diffrent workout videos it is so easy to change workout routine . Besides I love listening to you! you are such a motivation and so cute actually. You are so full of energy! you are really a role model in a way. Btw. I like jillian michaels too so thank you for mentioning her.
    Im so glad having found your youtube account! Those workouts are so damn good! Love this satisfying feeling after having done sports . Awesome!
    Thank you so much!

  210. I used to work out about 2 to 3 hours a day six days a week and was in great shape. I moved to the St. Louis area 3 years ago and gained 30 pounds and lost all motivation to workout again. Cassie, you have rekindled my motivation. You’re so much fun. I just love you, and I’m so excited to have found you.

  211. Hey Cassey

    I just wanted to let you know how much I love your website! I do about 30 minutes of your videos a day and love that they make me feel strong – I exercise to get fit rather than just get skinny now.

    I don’t know how you manage to make ‘kill your love handles/butt’, ’30 seconds of intense pleasurable pain’ and so on sound fun, but you do.

    Please come teach a class in London!

    Amy

  213. Dear Cassey,

    Do you think you can teach me a split in 4 days? we have a school talent show coming up so i really need the lessons.

  214. hey Cassey!

    You are awesome but can you teach me a split in 4 days with no pane?

  215. hey cassey!

    I love your videos on youtube can you possibly teach me how to do a perfect split on the ground without pain in 4 days? If not thanks anyways you’re still awsome.

  216. Hey Cassey! I just wanted to say that you are such a big inspiration to me. I’m going through that point in life where I have no idea which career to pursue besides the one my parents want me to go into. Your workouts and healthy snacks honestly are such a relief to me because it takes several loads off my back. So thanks!!

  217. Hey Cassey!

    I recently came across your channel on YouTube and I have to say I am SOOO ADDICTED! You’re great at what you do and in the last week I’ve already felt a difference in my body strength! So thank you so much for A. Being Awesome and B. For Sharing all your awesome tips, advice and work outs!

    Hi Cassey!!

    Your my inspiration and motivation for getting back in shape! I’m diving head first into your routine and at times I admit, I feel like I’m going to drop and not get back up again. My boyfriend and I broke up three weeks ago, and instead of moping around, doing your workouts made me feel better, mentally and physically!! I love your personality and how you keep me energized! Thank you for your hard work!! I literally look forward to working out everyday, its Amazing!!!! Thank you!

  226. Eesha Khan says:

    One day I was randomly searching for Pilates videos on youtube and somehow I came across pop pilates and I thought I’d try it. I loved every second of it! I actually got my obliques sore in one of the workouts. Now you’re my favorite instructor and you’ve inspired me so much! Thanks for posting all those videos.
    P.S. I really love how lively and fun loving you are. I just adore your personality. I’m a huge fan of yours and I do your workouts all the time!
    LOVE YOU

  227. Meera Abdul says:

    Hey Cassey! Stumbled upon your videos on YouTube and just wanna let you know how much I enjoyed watching them! Your videos are well loved halfway across the world :) I come from
    Sunny Singapore and its great to know how convenient your trainings are. Thanks a million and I’m on my way to a life of pilates! :)

  228. sheena aposaga says:

    I was inspired of your videos… and i really wanted to go to your class. do u have a training center in los Angeles, Ca? thanks

  229. Hi Cassey!

    I just want to say thank you SO SO much. You have no idea what I am/was struggling with. As a teenage girl, I have been struggling with an eating disorder and came across your blog a month ago. Not only have you taught me to be positive, you’ve taught me and helped me though a hard time by recognizing I don’t need to be unhealthy and go through severe actions.

    I know this is very open of me, but I feel this website has helped me out more than I can express. I only hope it will help others out too. I look forward to your workouts everyday, I follow your calendar and can’t wait to see what to do for the day as it’s always new, exciting and challenging!

    Reading others comments/advice are encouraging as well, thank you for starting such a wonderful site!

    I tried out a couple of your workout vids some days ago, and although I was near death for those 10 or so minutes, I realized that my former-athlete-out-of-shape-self loved every minute of it. I’ve been on and off on so many exercise programs and workouts that I just end up dropping and not following through on, because in all honesty, I end up getting bored. But your workout programs are just perfect because they’re exactly the kind that I love – high intensity (blame it on the ADD, I really need stuff to be really really high on energy levels AND interest levels for me to keep going) and with lots of variation.

    Just wanna say thanks for putting those videos out there. You’re helping a lot of women become even better, me included. :) Love and well-wishes to you!

  231. Hi Cassey….I just want to say congratulations!!! I’ve been following you for years now and you’ve gone from strength to strength!! I can’t believe how successful you’ve become- you totally deserve it!! and you are the most inspiring person I’ve ever come across…thank you for everything XOXO

  232. I have really skinny legs and since im tall, their 36 inches long and I SERIOUSLY want to get muscle on my legs, will casseys Pilates help or just make them skinnier?

  233. Belcy Hayter says:

    Hi Cassey!
    I am loving your exercises!!!. I just found about your Bikini Blaster Series…..and I am absolutely dying on it but doing my best at trying to lose weight and sculpt my muscles. I also want to say that through your workouts I feel healthier, energise and I start to see very good results in my body in and out. Thank you so much!. You have proved to be not only a pretty face. Your routines are graceful, clever, original, challenging and inspiring!. I really have fun with the paper plates, they work so well on the carpet. Once again thank-you very much, ;). You are doing a great job, Darling. Cheers.

  234. Thanks for everything you’re doing! As a missionary/wife/student overseas it can be really difficult to get motivation to exercise and figure out how to eat healthy in local cultures. I’ve done a few videos and am enjoying your site. I love that your videos are short, focused, challenging, and entertaining. The calendar is really helpful too! Thanks for sharing about yourself here. Keep sharing your passion.

  235. Jessica Frankovich says:

    Hey Cassey! I just wanted to say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR NEW SITE DESIGN!!!!! <3 You are also completely wonderful and my room mates and I do your workouts before bed most nights!!! <3<3<3<3

  236. I found this site from Pinterest and happy I did. There are no pilates classes that work around my sch and I miss pilates so much. I’m glad you have printables and calendars to keep me on track. Also I like how you motivate your followers!!

  237. BAHAHAHAHA!!! Casey your going crazy this month!!!! HOLY repeats!!! I’ve been following your calendars for two months… and OMG i’m finally enjoying my body!! I LOVE waking up the next day and being like Fal lalala Ouch i have muscles there? ahaha its just great i don’t know why but your program works my body like no other!!! I love it, so Thank You!!! I’m still working on the diet part, i’m hypoglycemic, and i started the 90 challenge and my blood sugar bottomed out to 54 so that was a bad day lol. However i’m tweaking my meals and trying to find the happy medium which i will. Thank you for taking your time to prove such astonishing methods to those of us who cant find it for ourselves!!!!!! I’m so jealous of you opportunities and amenities, I live in a little town in South Dakota, where we have Zumba once a day, Yoga but non for beginners, ZERO Pilates (breaks my heart), a crossift center (they scare me) and we have like 3 gyms with no classes offered… so your my saving grace!!!! thank you thank you thank you!!!!

  238. I am new to the site and I love it so far. I just got done watching the video where people were talking about the site and it brought me to tears because I know how much I want my body to change like those other beautiful women’s bodies have. I am three days into your workouts and one day into my soda free and clean healthy diet. I can’t wait to gain motivation from new friends on the site like the others. I have taken before picture and can’t wait to send in a video of my own with my results.

    Love,
    Marissa

  239. Hi Cassey, just want to say thank for your VS workout series I have to say the abs one is my favorite I’m 16 and I never felt so good working out to your video I’m 171lbs and petite(5’3″) so I’m overweight but my goal is to lose 35 pound as my new year resolution.

  240. Thank you for these super workouts and I think that they are great workouts for ever size and type of person sofar I have lost some weight with this programs

  241. Whoops, *Cassey, sorry, it was spell check I swear!

  242. Hey Cassie! This the first time I’ve posted anything, but felt that it was time since I’ve been doing your workouts now for two months. :

    Some back story on how I found your website:
    My roommate and I are at totally different fitness levels. She is very slim and used to run all the time, but hurt her knee a couple years ago. I used to be very fit 7 years ago and had “let myself go” for a few years now. My roommate wanted to start working out at home and asked if I wanted to do it with her. I jumped at the opportunity to have a live in workout buddy that I get to roll out of bed and meet up in the living room. At first we tried to alternate between yoga and the Insanity workout. Everyday kicked my butt, however my roommate didn’t always get a good work out. Then her sister shared your website with her and we’ve been doing them ever since!

    Your workouts are challenging for me to work up to doing all the reps and advanced forms. My roommate gets a great workout from you every time!

    My roommate is moving out, today :(, but we are still going to do your workouts and text each other when we’ve completed them. I love your style and energy, don’t ever change!

    Thank you!

  243. Hello Cassie!! Thank you soo much!! I love all of your videos, they really inspire me to keep fighting for that body I want. Your videos are so helpfull, all of them!! And the recipes are great, specially the banana pancakes :). Since I’ve started watching your videos I’ve been eating clean, and I realise its waaay easier to loose that extra fat that I thought would vanish only with pilates…thanks once agaain, love you soo much!!
    Oh, and where did you announce the winners of the app? I cant find iit

  244. Hi Cassey

    When are you bringing out your own dvd? one hour sessions would be great. Just a suggestion :) These 10+min clips on youtube are not long enough for a good workout.

    Cheers.

  245. Chelsea Chaelynn says:

    Cassey!! I absolutely ADORE your workouts, it’s the first one I actually have fun with!! (Ask my boyfriend, who thought I had jumped off the deep end when he came home to me working out in stilettos!!) I have just recently discovered you and am doing the workouts and eating healthier. My question is what products do you use as in protein, pre-workout, etc? I am using Fireball from Vitamin World as pre-workout and it works amazing but I am new to all this intense training lol…Again you are awesome and keep up the amazing work!!<3
    -Chelsea Chaelynn

  246. I m so excited! Juz signed up on blogilates after confirming that I can stand cassey’s nonstop chatter *_* in fact, it’s wat makes her so real tat I can relate ! Kudos to u, cassey!

  247. do you use a ipod band for your arm at the gym? I’ve been thinking about getting one, but i don’t know their credibility.

  248. Brianna Smith says:

    i can’t get my December calender :(

  249. Amazing! I’ve never felt so successful after a work out. I feel the burn non stop and i LOVE IT!!!! Blogilates just top any other workout plan, style, instructor just everything!!! Your enthusiasm is remarkable!! I appreciate you sharing you Bikini competition with us to prove that the burn, and killing fat is soo worth it! Thank You!!

    p.s. i hope you beat Jillian someday, because your approach is so much better and it truly works!!

  250. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I just love your approach to working out. I loved workouts before I found your videos, but I never knew if I was doing enough or getting even the least bit stronger. Now I know what I need to do to get stronger and fit. Thanks SO much!! You are AMAZING!

You’re my thinspiration and my motivation and i know i can reach everything i want to ’cause your positive energie helps me to keep going on and working hard..so thanks for every tipp and every workout..everytime i do your videos i think somebody does the same like me right know and feel the same burn …so i try to smile and try to give 110 % like you do..So much love to you !! <3

  252. Geraldine Muteka says:

    Hi Cassey

    I simply love your website and workouts. I started a few days ago and can still not finish one workout, but I am so encouraged that I will continue. I am super unfit, actually if you look up the word unfit in the dictionary you will most probably find a picture of me :-) So my focus is not only weight loss and toning and so on, but really discipline and control. I believe your workouts can help take control of my body even it is by gently forcing it into positions that I never thought possible.

  253. You are amazing – thank you for the motivating videos/workouts – I’m a runner looking to really get toned and these make me feel great! Hopefully I can just stick with it and see some results soon! Thank you so much for all you do : ) -MK

  254. hazalouliania says:

    heyy cassey if you like have a broken arm or leg or something but you want to continue working out what could you do? i know like its definetly not going to be like an extreme workout and all but even if its a slight workout i dont want to stop completely!

    xoxo

    ps. ive been following your workouts for about 4 months now and im eating clean and everything and loving every moment of it its incredible im so glad i found your blogg!! :D <3

  255. I seriously stumbled across your blogilates site after looking at some tumblrs. I decided to check it out….AND I AM HOOKED! I’ve been doing AT LEAST one of your videos everyday for the past three weeks and I am already seeing changes in my body. I am so happy. Pilates is so much fun, and you make it really accessible to everyone. I feel like you’re really in the room with me, pushing me to work harder! I love it. Best of luck to you, you are amazing!

    Sabreena

  256. Hi Cassey :)

    Your website is really famous and great! You have a very nice figure. I also want!
    So .. Can you tell me some exercises for the hips and tummy? Please.

    I will like, when you answer to me ([email protected]), thank U so much.
    Lots of love, your fan!

  257. Lucy Dwyer says:

    Hey Cassey!
    I’ve been doing your workout videos for about two or so months now and I feel great! But what I wanted to ask you is if you have any apps in the making? I think it would be such a great idea to have a little app with all the videos on it and a daily message from you or little things like that! Maybe we could take photos of our progress day by day, just brainstorming. Well have a great day and stay fabulous!
    Lucy x

  258. hi cassie! i love your videos they are super fun and super challenging! I am like 85 pounds and im 5′ 0 so i am very petite. i swim in the fall from august to november. now that im in my off season i have been doing your blogilates vdeos. my goal right now is to get a nice flat tight lean stomach. i naturally have a very fast metabolism was wondering what foods i should eat to achieve my goals. As well i have been doing your excersizes for a few weeks now . everyday i have been doing Good time abs challenge, brokenhearted abs challenge, abs all night challenge, pop Pilates ab challenge and also the victoria secret model ab workout yet i havent been seeing much results and i know for a facim doing them right because i can feel my abs burning when i do them. Can you help?

  259. Hey Anna! I’m also a bit too young to crazily diet (I’m 13, 14 in two months). It’s super easy to eat healthy. Basic rules: 1.) Avoid junk food as much as you can! Although, it’s okay to have a bit in moderation. 2.) Try to eat as much whole grains as you can. Whole wheat bread, whole grain pasta, the like. 3.) Lots of water, especially if you’re active and/or live in a warm climate! 4.) Fruits and veggies! They can also help to keep you hydrated. 5.) Try not to eat added sugar or salt. Just avoid putting extra salt or sugar in foods (potatoes, hot chocolate/coffee, etc.) It’s super easy to eat clean early on. Hope I helped! PS. I am not a nutritionist; I don’t know everything. (:

  260. how should we alternate the muscles we work?
    ex). is it OK to do abs 2 days in a row, even if we are still sore from day 1? or does it have something to do w. muscle recovery?
    thanks!

  261. Cassey has helped me target my problem areas! I tried Insanity and I must say her blogilates work outs are just as hard and insane. I love them! You rock Cassey!

  262. Hey cassey
    I just luv u and ur videos so much.you are such an amazing trainer.
    I’ve been doing pilates for about one year and it mkaes me feel really happy and I’ve noticed such an amazing change in my body!
    thank you so much and keep on working.

  263. dexterrose says:

    your such an amazing person! thanks for being who you are. :)

  264. Allison Sears says:

    OMG Cassey! I love you SOOO much! <3 You are so beautiful (inside and out) and SO inspirational. I try to do your videos twice a day and i have seen an awesome difference within 3 months (I'll be honest)… Without really eating that clean. :P But your keep me motivated to just keep working out and to try and better myself!

    Congrats on your Bikini Comp! I know you will do great but still the best of wishes are with you!! Your Beautiful and you Shine like a Star! POPstar?

    Keep up the great work! I'll be with you every step of the way!!! <3

  265. Hiii! Love your website, and love your “pop-pilates” workouts(: I would really love if you could answer to this : I’m 12 years old, and I was wondering if there is anything I should watch out for food wise, like, for my age? I’m obviously not going to follow the 90-day diets and all because I’m pretty sure that could cause harm to me and my growing. But I was just wondering if you have any tips for healthy eating,for a younger audience maybe?(:

    Thanks!xoxo
    Anna

  266. Hello Cassey,

    That bag, that bag…with the bow, the light pink bow handbag? Where is that bag, and how much is it? The bag is gorgeous!

  267. CASSEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY omg i just wanna know how you keep your legs so straight, i mean what do you do to keep them straight because mine are retarded and bent :L

  273. Sabrina Lillew says:

  274. I can’t wait till payday so I can get some too – and the ‘train insane’ vest top :)

  275. There isn’t one at the moment, but that would be so AMAZING! I always use the workouts as part of my gym routine and am totally addicted to blogilates – Casey can you create an APP for us?!

  276. Frances Mortensen says:

  285. Love the oGorgeous Yoga pants :) I may get some!

  286. nittaya says:

    So I am trying to figure out something. How can I eat small 5 meal when i work fully day. When I come home i have dinner. I live with my parent. So suer I still eat Pre even after my dinner and sure i eat my post after my work out? Also your videos are amazing!

  287. Dear Cassey
    :(
    I have been a great fan of your workout videos ever since i first lay my eyes on them. I always had the zeal to complete your workouts and have fun. But the lastfew days suddenly turned to hell for me. I lost a neighbour of mine, we had known each other since childhood.It was all so sudden and horrid.Now I just want to get back to normalcy because the gloom is eating me from inside. I no longer like doing anything,having fun,listening to music, doing your workouts,i just want thinks to become ok again.:(
    Please be safe on roads and keep reminding your friends and loved ones to take the precausionary measures and be careful.
    Take care.

  288. Hi! I love your videos! I just started to do your workouts and I love your encouragement in every video of yours! I was wondering if you could make a workout video for thinning down calves (not big and bulky)? If so, that’ll be wonderful! Thank you so much!

    You’re very pretty by the way :D

  289. katie swafford says:

    Cassey
    you are such an inspiration to so many girls & women everywhere. I absolutely love you! You have changed my life & have made me want to be a better mother, wife,sister, daughter…..just an all around better person! My body & MIND have been transformed, all because of Blogilates & you!
    Thanks for giving someone like me who was teetering on the brink of insanity, a reason to grab life by the horns & go for my dreams. You are the BEST!!!

    MUCH LOVE,
    KATIE

  290. Caitlyn says:

    I just want to say I love your videos and posts! I have felt unmotivated and weak for a long time and then I came across your videos and decided to try them out. I have finally started to love my body again! Thank you so much for all the effort you put into these posts and videos, you have truly inspired me!

  291. Chrissie says:

    Hey Cassey!
    I’ve been doing some of your videos on youtube and they’re brilliant and are really motivating!! Thank you sooooo much!! I was just wondering how I subscribe to get your July workout calender when July comes as I’d really like to get fit and actually stay fit!!!

    Thanks again!

    Chrissie xx

  292. Hi Cassie, I’m sure you are helping more people become healthy than most doctors! I hope your parents’ hesitation is only because they love you and want everything to work out well for you. Once they can see that you are happy and making a living, I hope they will be able to relax and appreciate your career path.

  293. Hi Cassey,
    Your youtube videos have been really helpful and I love your sparkly personality.
    I run a lot and don’t really do strength training/pilates because there was no good platform for me to learn from previously. Now, with your videos, I can do it anytime, even when I come home after work at 10 pm. Thanks so much for inspiring me to get toned up. Keep your videos coming! :)

    Love from Singapore,
    Jayne

  294. Just wanted to say how brave I think you are for following your passion. It is difficult to not do what is expected of you by your parents.

  295. did u check spam?

  296. Faviola says:

    Hey Cassey,
    I was just wondering i want to loose five pounds in like a month and a very flat stomach and want to be kind of toned but yet have skinny legs. I would like to know what do you suggest i eat? And what do I do to get skinnier legs and also arms? It would be amazing to have the body I have always wanted. I was always wondering how to i loose weight without loosing my butt? And how can I loose fat fast? And if i eat something that has fat how much should the fat be?

  297. Hi, I entered my email address to subscribe to your newsletter, but I didn’t get the confirmation email. Please add me to your mailing list!

  298. Hi Cassey,
    I was doing one of your videos and i couldnt help but notice that you looked short. I was wonder how tall you were than… so, How tall are you?! I was just curious thats all.

  299. hi cassey, I recently found your blog and I love it, I love they way you write, your videos and the energy you put in your work. I started to run since 5 months ago and I drop 10 pounds which I love, now I will complement it with you workouts, and great eating ideas! tks for sharing you knowledges with me! rgds, dalys (a stay at home mom of a 5YOgirl)

  300. Anna Brown says:

    I just discovered your videos on youtube about a week ago. On the days that I do not run I always go to youtube and do one of your video workouts. I love your energy and passion, keep it up!!

  301. Brittany B. says:

    Just discovered the wonderful world of printables! I don’t own a printer but can do them from my laptop! I’m so excited because I am not able to watch videos all the time with my internet package and trying to do workouts from memory usually results in weaker performances, so this will be very helpful!

  302. Hi!

    I work out to your videos, and they are great! Thank you for being such an inspiration :)

  303. Gracie Decker says:

    I stumbled across your youtube videos the other day when I was trying to find an ab workout to challenge me, and now I am addicted! Your videos and blog have been such an inspiration to me and I’m going to try the 90 day challenge to start eating clean :)

  304. Haley Goddard says:

    Your videos are amazing and I really feel an improvement in myself!!

  305. Christina says:

    I just want to say that you are amazing and I love your videos!
    Especially the New Year special Pop Cardio Dance, I could never get tired of dancing to it over and over again : D

  307. Hey Cassey,

I will be using these for sure and thank you for making them freely accessible to us – I can’t begin to say just how much I appreciate that! Can’t wait to start using them and then reporting back on how I get on! Plus watched your video on Eat Clean – I have that book too and LOVE it!

    Thanks again

  308. I have a question for you, Cassey! I’ve been reading your blog for a while (love it), and was wondering if you do a low-carb, high-fat diet most of the time?

    But many of your recipes seem low-carb. Do you do high-carb, low-fat?

    I’m wondering because I’m in the process of being healthier and eating clean, and I’m not sure which way to go!

    Thanks for taking a look at my question. Keep doing great work. :)

  309. thanks for the 2nd part of your comment. i alwyas try to use the least amt of equipment bc i know not everyone has the tools. plus ur body is a big ole weight itself!!! so i am very happy u notice that!

  310. Hey Cass!
    I have been following your videos for few months and (this might sound creepy) i am so excited to wake up and workout with you in the mornings! I look forward to starting my day with your positive energy that streams out of you, all the way through the computer to my home and gives me strength to attack my day! Even my 1 year old son loves to dance to the background music from your videos. You are so easy to relate to. You, Cassie, have put the joy right back in to my healthy lifestyle. My favorite part of your workouts is your constant dialogue. You leave no doubt as to what i should be making my body do, or where to position my limbs, or if i am doing it right! And your dialogue constantly motivates me with “think skinny jeans” and “strapless dresses” and even the random comments about “the gravel hurts my hands” or “dripping sweat on the carpet” keeps me going. I seriously laugh so hard all workout that it is like an extra abb workout in the midst of what im already trying to do.
    Also, i was SO shocked to read mean comments directed at you from other women. No person has the right to tell you what you are worth. Remember that!
    And i do have a suggestion for a video. I would love to see more yoga moves incorporated into your videos. Women want to be limber and yoga can be SO hard! I would to have the balance and strength to one day do a hand stand or crow pose…or some cool party trick ;)
    LOVE
    Jocelyn

  311. Hi, i really need you help. I’m 14 but I gaeind so much weight. I need your help. Cow can I lose weight? I can’t go to gym ’cause I’m too busy for that. I always do your pilates videos but I just won’t lose weight. What are the cardio exercises I can do at home? Please help me.

  312. Hey Cassey,I made a youtube aconuct so i could talk to you, your videos (especially this video) Have saved my LIFE! thank you so much (i’m sooo excited to be talking to you, your like a celebrity to me or better! (:) i’m just so happy that you would do this for us.! thank you so much i just can’t be more excited to talk to you!

  313. thank u for ur kind words!!!! i’m so happy for ur progress.

  314. Dear Cassey I’m so glad you didn’t study medicine but followed your heart!
    For over 30 years I suffer from daily back pain due scoliosis.
    Went to Chiropractors, Physiotherapie and made my back exercises, I even had a Boston brace as a child to avoid surgery.
    It was a hard and painful live but now I found your Pop Pilates videos and thought some of the exercises look like my back exercises only yours are advanced.
    I started to do what I felt alright and now after only 3 days my lower back pain is gone!!!! (Have to confess that some other parts hurt but that is a good pain *g)
    Anyway, my lower back feels stronger (like something is supporting my spine to stay straight) and I have hope to get ‘fit for life’!
    It feels soooo good and I’m very thankful!
    I hope more back pain sufferers will find your web site and find hope for pain relief!
    Many blessings wonderful Lady!
    Keep up your fantastic work!

  315. so cool! c/o 09 right here!

  316. Stumbled across your DIY shirt on Pinterest and was floored that it was a WC shirt. I graduated from WC in 2006 and proud to see people spreading the Poet Pride.

  317. Hey Cassie, I was just wondering, what is your ethnicity?? I’m guessing korean?

  318. Hey Cassie!
    Just want to say that you’re my inspiration! I’ve only been doing Pilates and your videos for 2 weeks but I’m already seeing a difference and I ADORE it! To burn fat fastest what do you think,I’ve been trying to do between 30-40min Pilates workouts every day and then I hop on my elliptical for another 10-20…..is the elliptical enough cardio to burn the fat that should? I mean if I’m eating right and doing Pilates,or should I be doing more cardio and less Pilates? Or something other than the elliptical? And I will switch it out with running or a cardio workout too…..
    Thanks so much again for your videos and your attitude! Keep it up girl!

  319. Hi,

    Just want to say I love your website! I’ve got four stone to lose and have been trying for ages to find exercises that are lost cost and low impact on my joints, then you were recommended! I’ve now woken up aching in the right places instead of my knees and ankles, so a massive THANK YOU! Going to stick with your workouts in hope of getting fit (and slim, cus yer know, that’s nice too!) for summer!

    Thanks for the brilliant videos!

    Love!

  320. Cassey,
    I absolutely love love LOVE your videos. Their amazing and I love doing them. I love that you are my “YouTube trainer”. You’re so amazing.
    After doing just one of you’re awesome workouts, I felt amazing. I do at least one video a day in the morning. I love the 2 part summer/bikini workout, it’s amazing.
    Gah I can’t stop saying how amazing you are. You are my hero.
    Love all that you do.

  321. What?! You moved from Boston before I had a chance to meet you! This really upsets me. By the way, I’m majoring in Bio as well and on the path to med school. Partially my parents decision, and partially mine. I’m glad you ended up choosing what you like best. You are such an inspiration! Peace, love, and continue being yourself, because you’re awesome just the way you are :)

  322. Hi Cassey! OMG that’s all i got to say! Your workouts are freakin amazing, i recently stumbled upon them on youtube by accident and after trying just one video i felt the BURN. Now i am totally hooked. I love your positive attitude on screen. You are indeed my fitness guru now.
    love, Samia

  323. Hi Cassey,
    I adore your work and your attitude toward it! It keeps me motivated, positive and, well, going with the moves :-) I’m a PhD student from the Czech Republic, now living in Turkey, and I discovered your videos only recently, when I wanted to change my workout routine, and got addicted. Thank you so much! I wish you all the best in what you do!

  324. ur welcome!

    Hi Cassy i´m from Germany and i love your POP Pilates Videos. After a hard working day i enjoy it to do some sport…
    It´s good to my body and my soul!!!

    Thank you!

  326. you’re welcome!

  327. Cassey, I just discovered your site and I LOVE it!! Thanks for all that you do :-)

  328. you are one of the inspirations that i finally wanted to do more with my life, i want to become a fitness instructor/trainer!

    you really motivate people to push to their limits in working out and i like it :-) more! more! and more!

    may god bless you always

  329. I meant to say I think you are such a great person. TYPO!

  330. Hi Cassey I you are such a great person and your attitude is amazing! You really keep me motivated. Thank You so much!!

  331. Hey! I came across your videos on YouTube a few days ago, and they are amazing! Im going on vacation April 8th, and I was wondering, how much weight is it possible to lose in about 6 weeks (from now to my trip)? I weigh 140, but I am 5’7 and a dancer, so I am moderately active. I’m 13 by the way haha. But, I just want to tone up and slim down before summmmer time! My tummy is tight and is defined, and my quads are very muscular, but I don’t want them to get bigger. Is running going to make my thighs and butt bigger? Or will it get rid of fat and tone my muscles to make me thinner? Thank you!

  332. I love you! A month ago me searching for internet videos of Pilates found you and i was hooked! Your very encouraging and so much fun. Your great, Just wanted to say thanks for all you do and keep the workouts coming! :)

  333. Hey girl, I just found your blog! I love your design and outlook! You seem really fit and healthy, keep it up that’s great :) Just wanted to say hi!

  334. *LEAST NOT Lease haha

  335. Just wanted to say THANK YOU! Your videos have inspired me and I do at LEASE one everyday, sometimes two. :) I feel more energetic than ever before and self confident. Thanks for being amazing,inspirational and fun! Keep it up !

  336. ahh wow! ur in jordan now?? what for?

  337. Hi CAssey! i love the way you instruct Pilates and how you make it easier for us to follow. love love love!!! cheers!

  338. I can’t believe you’re teaching at Bally’s in Fremont! Before I moved to Jordan, that was my gym. My parents still go there, so I think I have to ask my mom to attend one of your live sessions! =) Hopefully you’ll still be around this summer when I visit! *must do more Cassey workouts daily* Oh, and thanks for this website! As much as a gym enthusiast I was in the states, I’ve had a hard time really feeling comfortable in the gyms here. You make working out at home fun and productive =)

  339. no prob!

  340. Hi,
    I’ve just found your website & you have some great-looking recipes. I’ve just started Pinterest. Would you mind if I post some of your recipes there? Thanks!

  341. OMG! i don’t know how i missed those. thank you dear! and thank you for getting me excited about working out again! You are a life saver.

  342. yes, have you looked under POP cardio?

  343. Is there a cardio video? I have knee problems and cannot run, jump, squat, lunge, bike or walk far. I’m allergic to chlorine and its too cold to swim in the lake. I need to get my heart pumping! Is there a sweat yourself silly in the comfort of your own Living room cardio video?

  344. Augustino says:

    I like these videos. I like you amazing workouts.

  345. thanks for updating me! i am changing it now.

  346. Katharina says:

    Dear Cassey,

    I’m a huge (non-American :) I hope my English doesn’t sound too strange) fan of yours, you’re super likeable and I love watching your videos. I already do a lot of sports and your workouts are just the perfect complement to my daily routine. Thank you!!!

    (None of the links on this site are working, could you please fix that? I would be really interested in your first POP Pilates video… :))

  347. Cassey!

    I think you are wonderful and would like to thank you ever so much for posting your FANTASTIC videos on Youtube. I seriously cannot get enough! I do pilates classes at the gym I go to at my university and was looking for some pilates instructionals I could do at home on my off days – yours are just ideal! I love that I can do full-on and effective workouts without having to leave my bedroom!

    You are amazing, thank you so much!

  348. Hey! I’m 16 and just discovered your blog and youtube videos. I’m a competitive soccer player, but on days off i love doing yoga (and now pilates) to get more toned and to gain more arm strength. My twin sister and I started doing some of your workouts and I am unbelievably sore! I just wanted to say that your workouts are AMAZING and I am planning on trying your recipes :) Is there a healthy substitute for protein powder if you don’t want to use that?

  349. oGorgeous was something I started back in college and then just recently picked up full speed this year after quitting my job. Blogilates wasn’t planned and wasn’t really supposed to happen this way. My best advice is to be yourself 100% and be genuine. Your fans/students can tell when you’re being real. Authenticity is key.

  350. Hey Cassey,
    I love your vids and your entrepreneurial spirit. It is so cool that you have made Pilates work so well for you! After just graduating from college I am trying to do that same in NYC. But alas, it is not easy.
    I follow your tumblr and saw your giveaway. I wanted to let you know that I would really love to sport your pleated pocket gym bag in either black or chrome dazzle. I love them both and it is so hard to decide. I also would love to learn more about how you launched yourself and the hardest things that you have faced along the way.

    All the best,

    Elly

  351. You’re seriously awesome. Thank you so much for all your hard work you’re putting into your blogs and videos. You’re really changing the lives of many! Thank you for your encouragement, your kindness, and making workout fun! You really are changing the world even if you don’t know it.

  352. Most of the pilates vids will be ok for u to do. Just avoid only planking, lunging, and my pop cardio videos.

  353. Welcome and I am so happy u found me!

  354. DiAnn Nicole says:

    Hi Cassey!

    I stumbled upon your videos on youtube and I absolutely love them. I think you have an elite sense of fashion and amazing body sculpting work outs and tips. I am from Texas so San Francisco is a little far for me to attend a class in person but I thank you so much for helping me get back in shape online!

  355. Hi Cassey,

    I’m new to your page, and your workouts look very exciting. In November, I injured my foot while running. Are there any low impact exercises I can do to stay in shape while my foot is healing?

    Thanks!

    Kim

  356. Welome!!!! I am so happy you stopped by. Let me know how everything goes.

  357. Hello!

    I’ve never really been into pilates, I’ve attended a class here and there, but it never really excited me into working out. When I saw the POP Pilates on YouTube, I was intrigued. After watching some of your videos (and, naturally, visiting the site!), I’m actually excited to start doing these videos! Maybe the energy wasn’t high enough in the courses, but your enthusiasm and energy pops out of the videos! You really have a gift!

    I wanted to thank you for all the work you’ve put on YouTube and I can’t wait to starting working out with you as a teacher. =)

  358. Aww thanks Ghada for stopping by! Nope, I’m not the owner of Pilates on Page. Don’t u love the Bay??? Welcome to the community my dear!!

  359. Ghada Yasin says:

    Hi Cassie! I was just doing research on on-line Pilates because I love working out at home, and now that I am living abroad in Amman, Jordan, I am so happy I found your videos! I am an S.F. native (actually born IN SF!) but grew up in Marin, so I’m even happier to have come accross your website! Especially the cardio ones with my beautiful bridge in the background. I was wondering: are/were you the owner of Pilates on Page??? I used to walk by that studio often when I lived in Hayes Valley during my law school years. Also, in case you were wondering, I learned about you on Shape.com’s Best You Tube Workouts article. Congrats on your success, and thank you so much for sharing your talents so generously. All the best!

  360. Hi Cassey!
    I just found you on Youtube while doing ab exercies. Girl, you totally rock and I can´t believe I haven´t seen you there yet!
    I am in ♥.
    Thank you so much for doing all this.
    As a vegan I was pleasently surprised to see that you offer vegan options in your mealplan, too :)
    Lots of Pilates loves,
    Michaela

  361. Hi Cassey! I LOVE your videos and how accessible you make them to everyone :) I posted about you on my blog and hope to get even more people engaged in what you have to offer!

  362. Hi Cassey..

    I love your videos specially when you do it with a smile and so easily which makes me think even i can do it… You are a true motivation for me..
    Well im 68kgs and my height is 5’2 my ideal weight should be 55kgs..
    Iam actually an active person but because i developed PCOD it is difficult for me to lose weight.. :-(
    You have any special excercise for me..!!?? Need help

    Thanks

  363. cassey aww, just reminiscing about your growth as a blogger, haha. I can’t wait to meet you!

  364. I don’t know bc I love what I do now!

  365. Luv it! Luv it! Luv it! Pop Pilates is all that I do now. I love how you use weights also in some of clips. Keep up the wonderful work. So Cassie you have a degree in Biology. What type of career would you prefer second to what you’re doing now? I love to garden– organically of course and everything to do with nature on this planet. As the cliche goes you are what you eat and include excerise too, specifically pop pilates!
    Cathy

  366. I didn’t know you were in the bay area :) I’d love to take a class from you in the future (when I don’t have two jobs)! For now, I’ve been doing kickboxing twice a week and have been biking to work…I read your blog for inspiration! Thanks!

  367. You look so beautiful with that smile Cassey, and keep smiling.
    Just to add that you are such a friendly person, God bless you.
    All the best.

  368. AWWWWW love u!!!! That was sweet.

  369. Cassey,

    You and your brand are simply amazing. It is so hard to find a workout buddy in the world today between work weeks, social life, laundry, etc, and I wanted to say thank you for being mine! You are an inspiration- mind, body, and soul. I admire your positive energy :)

    Thank you for pursuing your dreams!!!

  370. Hey thanks for stopping by! No I don’t follow weight watchers. You can get 100% whole wheat bread anywhere these days but I suggest Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Try Ezekiel bread.

  371. I have just discovered you through youtube.com. I’m a huge pilates fan, but have been stuck doing the same Windsor Pilates 20 minute routine for several years now and it’s not working for me anymore. I’m REALLY hoping your Saddlebag Shaver works miracles! haha Two quick questions for you: (1) Do you follow Weight Watchers? (2) I am not a cook and discovered a lot of my foods have refined sugars/carbs. I use these foods for simplicity & ease. As a working wife and mother of 2 small children, how would you advise me to eat healthy? Just as an example, where do you find WHOLE WHEAT bread and not enriched whole wheat for starters? It’s VERY difficult and discouraging to eat well when time is limited and experience in minimal.

    Thank you and look forward to my future workouts using your methods.

    Teresa :)

  372. Awesome! Welcome!

  373. Hey! I found your blog on pinterest.com when some one posted your 20/20 workout. I loved it and I love all of the stuff on here! Just wanted to say thank you for sharing all of this information with everyone! And you have two new followers, me and a friend of mine that I introduced to this site!! :)

  374. I did PIlates for about 4 years before teaching.

  375. Hey Cassey, how long have u been doing Pilates before teaching a class?

  376. Tall? I am 5’5″. That’s funny because some people say I look really petite but in real life when they see me, they say I look a lot taller.

  377. How talk are you?? Because u look really talk. I Love your video. What age should people start working out? :)

  378. That’s wonderful. You’re welcome!

  379. Hi Cassey,

    I am a 29 year old mommy – I had a 5 month baby and I am getting in shape with your exercise while she is asleep:) I cannot describe how good I feel and see how my body is getting back in shape – especially the abs that I lost during the pregnancy and the butt:) Thank you :))))

  380. Hi,
    I came across your videos when I was looking for excercises for my aching back. I love the way you give a detailed description about the moves :-) Real fun! Keep on posting videos, etc… And thanks my back is improving :-)

  381. I love your videos, you’re amazing. And like you, I’m starting to become vegetarian, pilates is my obsession and fashion is something I can´t let go. I’m your fan.

  382. Just wanted to say that I lover your videos, they are awesome!
