Let’s Develop the Blogilates Fitness App Together!

Hey POPsters!!!

So you know how you’ve been asking me to create a Blogilates app since like, forever!???

Well…yesterday I met up with someone who said they could help me develop this app and guess what? Turns out he’s the boyfriend of one of our POPsters!

I love this theme lately…POPsters helping POPsters all over the world and right here in the Bay Area!

I get a lot of emails from companies wanting to develop things with me but all of those letters seem so sales-y and uncaring. For whatever reason, when I got this particular email, I felt that it was exceptionally genuine and decided hey why not, let’s meet up, couldn’t hurt right?

I am so happy I did and that I followed my gut. We bounced ideas throughout lunch and got super excited over the potential collaboration! And now I wanna ask you guys to actively help develop this app with us! Because you are the reason this app is happening – it’s a fitness app for OUR COMMUNITY so I want your direct input on what you think would help motivate you, inspire you, and keep you focused and connected!

Please tell me in the comments below on my blog or YouTube!! It would mean so much to me to hear your input!

Also, just for commenting, I’ll be giving away a TRAIN LIKE A BEAST LOOK LIKE A BEAUTY or TRAIN INSANE OR REMAIN THE SAME top randomly on Friday. $20, see all colors on shopblogilates.com.

  

By the way, if you ordered anything from August 15th and up until Sept. 7th – all orders will be shipped on Sept. 8th. I hope you read that on the homepage and on the individual product descriptions before you purchased. If there are any issues, please just email help@ogorgeous.com and let us know if that is a problem and we can take care of it for you. I’m going through a phase where I kind of just need to stop, hold on, and gear up for the new oGorgeous stuff coming in!!! New gym bags, new wallets, new hot yoga bags…ahhhh!! So I am very very sorry about the inconvenience but do not worry, we will take care of ANY CONCERNS you have!!!

Okay need to go to bed!!!

Oh actually one more thing.

I’m kinda oddly addicted to this song “Gangnam Style” right now?!!?? I know a fair amount of you are K-POP fans and honestly, I never gave it a chance, but oh man. This is good. Very very good. It has over 62 million views!!! We should do a workout to this. It totally pumps me up!!!

Haha, what do you think?

<3 you,

Cassey

  1. If some one wishes expert view regarding running a
    blog afterward i propose him/her to visit this blog, Keep up the pleasant work.

  2. Hi Cassey I bought the fit journal for the 12 week program and was thinking it would be awesome if you could make one that goes along with your app so you can log it all in your phone for any program you are on with measurements as often as we want and pictures etc. I absolutely love your app but this would be a great addition. please and thank you :)

  3. Hej Cassey,
    Thank you, I have just watched the video to the new app and it looks awesome.
    But when will it be available for the Android Market?

  4. Hey Cassey so I just got your app :) and I bought the calendar log thingy. I was just wondering how to cancel the subscription after one month. I’m really confuse. Please email me back. Thanks!

  5. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I truly appreciate your efforts and I will be waiting for your next post thank you once
    again.

    Intense abb workouts, arms, tone up, cardios, eating meal plan, calendars, hmmm……

  7. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!|

  8. I have been browsing on-line greater than
    3 hours lately, but I never found any fascinating article like yours.
    It is beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you did, the internet will likely
    be much more useful than ever before.

    I’m so excited for your app Cassie! I love your website and all it’s positivity! :)
    Blogilates is the only way I can afford to do pilates now that I’m in college and not still waitressing!!!! I just take my iphone to the school’s gym and its so cost effective!
    Can’t wait for the app- you’ll do great!!!

  10. Everyone’s suggestions sound amazing and I’m sure you’ll make a fantastic ap :)

    My main suggestion is: Please make it available on Android as well as iPhone!!!

    Thanks!

  11. I also love how you put the hit music in your workouts which makes it better, and keeps me going.

  13. I love your workouts Cassey, it keeps me and my family in shape!

  14. I think it’d be awesome to have a calculator so readerss can plug in how many hours they worked out this week. It’d be fun to see the total (POPsters logged xxx,xxx hours this week!) And to see the average workout time per POPster…. ie: the average Blogilates reader worked out for 2.26 hours this week. You could have some fun crunching numbers to see trends to (does that # go down during the holidays? Time for a POPster holiday challenge!(.

  15. i love you casseeeeyyyyyy :) YOU’RE AMAZING AND YOU’RE SO INSPIRING AND MOTIVATING AND I HOPE YOU NEVER CHANGE :D

  16. fitnessloverxoxo says:

    cassey i was just wondering when you were going to pick the winner and if you did already then what video is it in?

  17. I forgot to say:

    A visual goal, for me, is important. This is just an idea, but may like a widget that gets smaller the more you workout, like a bikini visual or a platter of lousy foods turning into healthy stuff. I don’t know. But if that were on my android, slowly dwindling based on my hard work, that would be amazing!

    The inspirational push notifications were a great idea, too!

  18. I am so excited to have an App based on the workouts I love!
    Here are some of my suggestions; sorry if some of them are repetitive!

    1.) Upon start up, ask your weight, height, age, gender, BMI and weightloss goals. It would be great if it could generate a safe plan to stick with to help reach that goal that, perhaps, suggests a certain amount of videos to do each day adding up to a specific amount of time. Also, if you were to mention areas you would want to tone more than others, it randomly generates more of a certain toning video to accommodate that.

    2.) Maybe you could incorporate a bonus workout video once a day and consider it a Workout Command? Or, instead, have something in Settings scheduled to initiate a Workout on Command?

    3.) Also, a section listing all your workouts, frequently updated, would not go amiss! You’re constantly making new ones and I don’t want to miss any of them! :D

    4.) Another section, perhaps, for recipes and a way of adding our own or ones we’ve tried. Some foods, I admit, I can be a skeptic. If I see reviews on them, it helps me decide to try it, as well.

    5.) A water notification would be great, too!

    6.) Maybe a section on great articles you can support about health or those you’ve written yourself? I like doing as much research on these things as possible. A review coming from a face we trust instead of those trying to make a sale would be awesome!

    Honestly, I’m not going to expect all of this. They are just what I’d like to see based on other fitness apps that seemed lacking and my own opinions. I’m sure something of that magnitude would not be created in mere days either. I just hope it helps from a fellow POPster hoping to become healthier! Thank you for always taking our opinions into consideration!

  19. Hey,

    some ideas….

    - make the app “communicate” with the phone calendar ( like if you’re doing the 90 days meal plan maybe put into the calendar the last day or something , add a reminder if you decide that you want to do a particular video workout every monday or something ) that’s not really complicated to do you just need to add one button under every video or anything that could be useful in the calendar and done!

    - the videos and some meal plans need to be there the printables too I thing that everyone agrees on that

    - than maybe a calorie counter or like a meal diary as well as a workout diary would be nice

    - easy to do and always nice for a Bogilate : being able to keep track of your weight there are many apps that can do that but it would be awesome to have everything together in one blogilate app! The most “easy” and clear app that do that is weightbot maybe there are some ideas that can be borwed there

    - gym abc is an app that you could inspire from even if a lot of people say that it is too complicated so maybe keep in mind to have it simple but at the same time try to have all the essential functions in it … your blog actually is like that “simple” but with it all !!!

    - oh I don’t remember where I had that but it’s really nice … While your working out ( I mean not in front of a video or anything just like running outside or something ) it would be nice to have a step counter for running and stuff and why not add your voice to it so that we could have like every 5 minutes or so a little Cassey that talks to us and motivates us there’s already other apps that do it with NFL and NBA players but YOUR voice could be awesome ( now I think I remember it’s the nike boom app that does that )

    well that’s all for now
    Thank you for everything that you do

  20. So excited! Didn’t have time to read through the 650+ comments so forgive me if these suggestions were mentioned multiple times :)

    1. Recommendations – based on user logging in weight, height, measurements, BMI, etc… as well as what workouts completed, to then get a recommendation of what videos to do that day. May be a little much to ask for but that would be the most useful for me. Feel like I pick and choose blindly and not everyone has the same needs (based on following the calendar workouts).

    2. From the comments I did read, I ditto the workout commands – the user can schedule how many times a day and perhaps at what times of the day they need a workout command coming from you.

    3. Also like the idea of having contests for swag :)

  21. This video is hilarious. You should definitely use the song for one of your workouts .
    You are great Cassey

  22. Wow, this app is going to be awesome if you can incorporate everyones ideas! Just a thought but since we are all at different fitness levels maybe you could include a difficulty level (ie just starting, not quite there, beast). Would love to have the app alert me to do work out commands ;o) or try a new food item/recipe. Ok ok one more, simplicity to start it off and hit us with something new in every update to keep it fresh.

  23. i don’t really care what kind of stuff is on the app, i just ask – no beg! – you to make it available for blackberry PLEASE. there aren’t many fitness apps for blackberry. :|

  24. i really enjoy your HIIT cardio workouts – and i was thinking it would be cool to have a timer that gave an alarm every minute. the alarm could even be a recording of your voice, hahaha that’s always encouraging! and maybe even something beep-test related.

    i love the other suggestions too – a calorie counter (with kilojoules available please!) and daily inspiration quotes. nothing like waking up to an inspirational push message!

    also: i really hope this is being developed for android as well as the iphone! :)

    good luck! <3

  25. For the App, i think that you should put the calendar on it, aswell as meal plans, workouts plans and maybe if possible, workout videos? it would be cool if we could enter contests to win train insane or remains the same shirts and stuff too on it. Just make it super colourful and really fun! i know you will do great!!! :D

  26. omg, that video was hilarious. catchy but seriously i was thinking of the donkey style instead of gangnam style. hahah

  27. a calorie counter and a daily workout alert.

  28. some kind of timer would be helpful too!

  29. a couch to 5k like thing in your app where you can “come with us on our run” and shout out support and commands and motivation and all that fun stuff!

  30. I’d love to see a points system that unlocks new “levels” and “goodies.” Can’t wait for this app!

  31. how bout something so we can keep track of our cals! like a cal. counter! something so that when we eat we can type in the cals we intake n it can help us keep track. and maybe have it so u can set the cal. intake u want in the day. n when your gettin close have your voice pop in n say “your getting close!” or “if your still hungry try drinking some water!” something like that! that would be neatO! def help keep us on track in our weigh loss jerney! :)
    <3

  32. u should do something special for all of those who dl the app :D dont matter wut! just something :) lol

  33. definitely a way to link your blogilates calendar to our phone’s calendar… or something like that. Just so it’s easy to know each day what we’re supposed to do! Yaaay so excited!

  34. work out commands! :D YESSS

  35. a place for us to shop n buy some work out swag!! :D mmmmHM

  36. DEF some motivational quotes from u to pop up on our phones!!! :D get us in the mood to work out n work out HARD! <3

  37. your workout songs u have are so fun n upbeat n DEF get u in the mood to work out n work out HARD! so u should have them available to listen to while we jog/run/walk! :)

  38. Definitely motivational/inspirational pictures and quotes for each day. I’d also like it if we each had a profile like instagram where we could post our own things like, our workouts, progress pics, workout songs, and other things!

  39. A daily motivation/affirmation alert. A phrase or quote that we can program to go off at certain times that will motivate and inspire us to be happy and healthy…and to TRAIN INSANE OR REMAIN THE SAME!!

  40. For those times we can’t watch a video (or need to go at our own pace), a section for the printable workouts/written versions would be awesome!
