Blogilates is YouTube’s NEXT TRAINER!

…And so that’s the big news! I found out last Friday and I think that’s when I went crazy on facebook and told you guys I had a secret but couldn’t tell you til Wednesday! If I did, YouTube said they would kill me. Def didn’t think it was worth dying.

I am very excited to be named one of YouTube’s next up and coming faces of fitness! So what does this actually mean? Well I had to enter my Blogilates YouTube Channel into a competition against other fitness channels all over the world. Then YouTube judges selected 16 winners. I was one of them! Oh and so was Bex! Yay!! Remember the workout we did together a month ago?

YouTube is giving me $15,000 worth of video equipment and promotion to help me make a “real career” out of making YouTube videos. OMG. That is a lot of mojo! They will also get industry professionals like Billy Blanks, creator of Tae Bo, to help coach us young fitness lads. SO COOL.

So remember when I said that this secret would benefit you too? Well guess what POPsters!!!! The only outcome I could EVER hope to come out of this experience would be to grow the Blogilates community more and more…to help you guys make friendships with each other and connect through our strong bonds…and to make more fitness and cooking videos for you to learn from. I’m not being cheesy, I’m being real.

When I was coming up with something to say in my Bio vid for Next Trainer, I wrote something about our community and it made me cry. Yea, it was weird. And although I’ve always been attached to you guys, I now know that I truly love and care about each and every one of you. That’s why I take your comments so personally. I see you as my students and friends. The particular thing I wanted to say was cut out in the actual vid you see up there…but just imagine me in the red shirt at the end going on for another 30 sec or so about how you guys have molded me into a better instructor and how much I want to meet you all one day.

So to add on to this whole community thing – I honestly believe that a ton of you are seeing results from the 90 Day Challenge because of the supportive network we have grown together. You guys are inspiring, motivating, and seriously, soooo nice. Your enthusiasm on facebook is ridiculous! I read your comments first thing when I wake up every morning and it makes me smile. My hope through YouTube Next Trainer is to get more POPsters on board and have more classes for you guys. One day my ULTIMATE DREAM is to have a crazy world wide POP Pilates meet up and teach every single one of you in person. I want my Ambassadors and POPstars up front and center leading the moves with me. Oh man…guys, I hope one day we can make this happen.

You should be expecting higher quality vids from me now…haha yay. And more frequent vids!!! For the next 12 weeks, YouTube Next Trainer will be putting all of us through a filming/editing course and mentorship program with top fitness professionals.

COOL.

    Just wanted to drop a note to say ‘thanks so much’ for your pop pilates workouts on youtube. I’m an American, but have been living in Brazil for the past 4 months. Gyms are insanely expensive here, are are yoga and pilates classes. I resorted to the internet, so I could keep my sanity by working out on a regular basis.

    I stumbled on your videos, when doing another youtube pilates course.

    I’ve tried several of your workouts and love them all. They are challenging, and I can’t wait to explore even more.

    Thanks, again!

    I took a peak of some of the other channels, because I tought, maybe I will find another great trainer or videos, but sadly, no one like you. I visit you blog everyday first to pick one of your amazings workouts, and then I try to do some yoga. You workouts are hard and inspirational, I have been doing pilates for about seven years, but I can tell you that after three children and almost 42 years old, I have the best body ever. Thanks for your entusiams, and congrats for this recognitions, you really deserve it.

  46. Susana Mota says:

  47. Not that you needed it, but this is just more validation that you are doing what you meant too. MEGA CONGRATS CASSEY, you deserve this and so much more. Keep the workouts coming, they are often the highlight of my day and I’m sure many other Popster’s feel the same way. MUAH!!!!

  48. Congratulations Cassey! OMG CONGRATS!!!!! You deserve every bit of this you’re such a hard worker great job girl!

    ( also I can’t wait to be working out live with the YT Next Up Trainer tomorrow!)

  49. Christine says:

    You so deserve this and much much more! You give away so much help, you ask nothing in return for all the work you do, and that changes lives, I for one, am so thankful that I tried one of your videos. Thankful that it was out there for FREE in the first place. I love your personality, and your vidoes are HARD. You’ve blessed so many people with your generosity, it’s about time it comes back around to you! So stoked for you!!!!!!

  50. That’s soooo great!!! I’ve been following you regularly since July last year and I am so amazed at how the community has grown! I’m not big on comments usually but I do read most of what’s going on here or on Facebook and I looooveee it :-) But this is just amazing! I just watched some of the other nominated trainers, but I have to say you’re by far the best when it comes to amazing but doable workouts and a nice smile :-) Congratulations Cassey, great work!!!!

    Awesome stuff Cassey, I am so proud of you and all your accomplishments. Even my fiance noticed how happy/healthy looking you are since mid summer whenever I’m been doing your vids at home and he hears you chatting/singing to the songs – you’ve def become more confident and are having lots of fun teaching the Popstar crew and it shows in the vids.

    Keep up the amazing work and NEVER EVER let anyone get you down and keep flashing those pearly whites :D
