Fitness, Food, & POP PIlates
So hard :( it is not for beginners at all!!
It burns so good!
Is it ok if I can’t do all the reps? My abs esp. during the extreme ab workouts hurt so bad that I have to stop and take a break. I feel like I’m cheating myself but it hurts so much that I just HAVE to stop.
I’m not Cassey but from experience trust me it’s ok and it’s not cheating yourself if it’s your muscles telling you to stop. Keep try and one day you’ll be able to finish. I was the exact same way when I first started but now they hurt but I’m able to push through cuz my abs are much stronger =) as long as your doing your best you will progress trust me <3
question: is it more effective to do four videos focussing on one body part/day than to do one on abs, one on butts, one on arms etc. everyday or every other day. I usually do three or four a day covering various body parts instead of the way you design the calendar….does it really matter?
love love love your fitness videos, you a make it super fun and motivating yet hard all at the same time. Fabulous!!!! I’m solo glad i found your website, my 11 year old also loves to do them with me.
winter is so great because i love to cozy up next to the fire and read or get out and hit the ski slopes, or of course bust out some fabulous blogilates videos and then hit the shower and sip some cocoa
Recently I was introduced to your workout videos. I enjoy yoga and Pilates. My daughter and I often search for workout videos to do together when she is home. Over Christmas break she introduced me to your Blogilates. What an AWESOME discovery!!!!
I absolutely love your enthusiasm and energy!!! So motivating. And your workouts are simple and so effective.
I would like an opportunity to win today’s “Christmas present”: the Beats and the steps/calorie tracker. In answer to the question, my favorite thing about winter is waking up to a MN sunny day when the trees are covered with frost. The combination of snow on the ground with frosted trees and sunshine makes the world sparkle and feel so peaceful!
Thanks for the new fun and challenging way to workout!
I’ve been watching your workout videos since last summer and the ab videos motivate me to push myself to continue working on my abs/stomach which I have a problem with, which is why I came on your blog right now to write this comment.
Okay first let me give you some basic information about myself:
Gender: female (obviously)
Body physique: thin/lean/toned a little , barely fat except my STOMACH -.-
Genetics: most of my family members are thin
Diet: I have high metabolism so I don’t worry too much about how much calories/fats I consume,
but I try to fit vegetables in somewhere between lunch and dinner time.
Workout/exercises: ever other day I lift weights to gain muscles around my body, stretch, and do ab exercises.
Problem: I notice change in my arms and a little on my legs, but I still have the same fat belly!
I’d appreciate it sooo much if you could please help me.
Awesome ab workout, even for a 53 yr old guy like me.
I like growing a beard in winter to keep my face warm during early morning workouts.
What I love about Winter is what I call the FOUR F’s: Family, Friends, Food & Festivities. Gathering with family and friends…..joining in the traditions and eating some yummy food. Keeps you moving through the winter months so you can eat those extra calories. Love going for walks too with the crisp air and the cool breeze on your face. Yes winter is fabulous and only the strongest can stay fit through this season with all the rich food and extra calories. Go blogilates I love you!
My favorite thing about winter is getting to do winter sports with my friends and family. Snowshoeing, downhill skiing, winter hiking, the first sign of snow and I get excited. I just bought cross country skiis, I cannot wait to try them out!
My favorite thing in winter is decorating and baking all those goodies! So fun to make colorful cookies and gingerbread houses right?!
I’ve struggeld with health problems since august till now, you give me the strenght and motivation I need to get back on track. It’s almost 6 months ago since I’ve got a good workout and it’s very hard to start again. I know your calender starts on 1 december and i’ve missed it but I’m going to do all your workouts I’ve missed. I’m probably too late for the giveaway but when you ask me what I like about the winter? Sitting inside with the people I love, cook healthy snacks, watch a movie ( christmasmovie) while it’s snowing outside, laughing in front of the fireplace.. Those moments really make me happy!
I want to thank you for all your help!
My favorite thing about winter is when there are giant snowflakes falling outside and the only thing you have to do that day is sit in front of a fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa, watch movies and snuggle with your pets and friends!
My favorite thing about winter is decorating the tree! Even though our tree is fake and a little wimpy it still brightens my day to walk into the living room and see it :) Thanks for the great video!
My favourite thing about Winter would definitely be in the morning when you wake up all wrapped in blankets like a burrito. Nothing like that toasty warm feel to start the day!
Hope I get through! (And thanks for your videos!)
What I love about winter is the snow!
I live in Canada and snow in winter just makes me pumped up for the holidays just like how Blogilates gets me more pumped up to challenge myself even more in winter
When I think about the positives of winter, two things come to mind!
1. The fashion! I love to wear long sleeved dresses with colorful tights and high heeled boots.
2. The look of snow, not the process of cleaning it off my car, but seeing a fresh sheet of snow that hasn’t been touched is one of the most beautiful sights out there.
:) Loving blogilates so far!
this was so insane, i love it!!
I’m such a huge fan of your videos! I’ve done a couple of them so often that I can actually repeat word for word what you say when you say it!! Also, the beats and fitbit look amazing!!! My favorite thing about winter is all of the fun, festive things leading up to christmas. I just love the smell of holiday baking and festive scented candles. I also love the excited feelings that come along with christmas movies, music, christmas decorations, holiday shopping, and more! The excitement of the holidays and spending time with family is the main reason why I love winter!!
For a lot of the exercises involving the legs I feel it more in my quads, and it’s my quads getting tired that prevent me from finishing each set. I’m really trying to activate my core but it still doesn’t make that much of a difference. Is my core just really weak or am I just not working hard enough?
I’m a pilates teacher/movement therapist. What you’re noticing is a muscle timing issues. It’s not that your abs are weak, per se. It’s more that you are more dominant in your quads, so you are feeling them take over the move, in place of your abs.
That being said, this workout favors extended knees and exercises that actually set you up to use your hip flexors more than your abs, so it would actually be quite difficult to find your abs given the timing of the exercises and the variations being demonstrated. If you want to find your abs, try softening your knees, slowing down and focusing more on the articulation of your spine, instead of finding large ranges of motion.
The big variation may look more impressive, but you’ll actually work much deeper going smaller and slower. Hope this helps!

Love this abb workout – did it a few times now and my lower and upper tummy hurt for 4 days!!! Great workout Casey, Thanks
That was a great workout! It was difficult in comparison to the others, but I love working those transverse abdominals like that! Also, you should consider being a superhero or a villain! The outfits you can make with them are very cool. So check those out!
whenever i do the earthquake move my legs lift off the floor an i cant do it properly :(
I couldn’t resist commenting. Very well written!
Hey! So, I really like this workout video, but my lower back always ends up hurting. Any suggestions?
I also have the same problem..my back hurts more then my abs. Is this supposed to happen? Am I doing it right?
I love this workout! My only problem is, when I am doing the earth quake move, if I go too low, I rock back, so my stomach muscles aren’t actually giving out, but its like I’m top heavy and so I role to my back. Am I doing something wrong?
Hey I have been doing blogilates for a week now and I am loving all these different excercises but just wondering when should i reach to a flat belly?
You should totally do Extreme Abs 2, Extreme Legs, Extreme Arms, etc… :)
I love this exercise, please make more extreme ab exercises.
Its really good for our abs. Thanks for sharing this video.
why do my comments seem to get deleted? :(
i really don’t want to harm someone here with pointing out that on the blogilates website the videos are not linked properly. this is just giving advice :/
greetings from a popster (have been for years) from germany!
This definitely hurt my lower back and hip flexor. am i just weak there or is my form probably bad?
Many of these moves give me a lot of hip pain, especially ones like the ‘jumping reptile’. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to modify these movements? I used to be a dancer and have had hip trouble for ages. Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!
I can’t seem to choose an alternative video today, used the youtube channel instead. Also any chance of grouping the body focus into cardio/mat work only? I do my cardio outside as I live in an apartment!
I can’t choose a different one either! It’s been that way for a couple of weeks now..
yup. i cannot chose different videos either. it’s really annoying. so i look up the videos on youtube atm.
anyone else having that problem?
I’m having the same problem! It’s driving me crazy!
Same problem it is driving me crazy too!
It’s been like this for months! Can someone fix this please? :/
It’s driving me crazy!
Anyone else still having this problem? Seems like the other videos are not linked properly?
Same problem here!
Yup; still like that! :/ I actually emailed Cassey about it weeks ago but no response.
still like it.
why no response to this? :( cassey?
Thank you for mentioning an alternate move for those in apartments! It’s difficult to find workouts that I can do in my apartment and I really appreciate you addressing that! :)
