Wowzaaaa I have so much to tell you I don’t even know where to start! (This is a life post btw.) Well I’m gonna first begin by saying that I am blogging from a hotel room in LA at 1:23 am and I just painted my nails a pretty nude and sparkle color! Feeling like a snowflake today. There’s no good lighting in the room so I will instagram my nails tomorrow! Are you following me there yet? It’s so much fun! Find me @Blogilates!
So 12.16.12 finally came and with it, the debut of the very first POP Pilates DVD!!!!!!
AHHHHHHHH!!!!!! OMG the day has finally come. Can you believe it!!?? The first time you guys asked me for this was like over 2 years ago when I was just starting out on YouTube. I finally got myself together and filmed a wonderful routine for you in a gorgeous house on top of a hill in the East Bay. If you read the orig. post on this, you’d know that my parents filmed it! Hahaha. It’s def been a long journey and there have been a TON of bumps in the road like you wouldn’t even imagine, but the DVD is here thanks to you guys! Seriously, you helped shape and sculpt the final product. You chose the cover, you told me what moves you loved most, and voiced what you liked and didn’t like about POP Pilates through comments, tweets, and emails. I have slaved endlessly over this alongside family, POPsters, friends, and colleagues…and I wouldn’t have it any other way! If you knew me in school, they used to call me “Miss Perfect” because I would stay up super duper late putting finishing touches on a project even if it didn’t raise my grade any higher. I just wanted it to be perfect and beautiful! So…when you guys get this…I hope you think so too!
What’s included in the POP Pilates: Total Body Workout DVD?
- Full 1 hr POP Pilates routine (just like if you were in a real live class with me!)
- Double sided glossy printable to take with you anywhere
- Music on/off option
- Fan albums and bonus videos (really cool!)
- Plays worldwide (so yes that means YOUR DVD PLAYER will accept it!)
I sent out a newsletter yesterday with a secret coupon code that will give you a nice discount for supporting the Blogilates Community and getting my first ever DVD! Sign up for the newsletter if you want it. Also, I want to note that this is a private presale for POPsters only from today until Dec 31st when it will be shipped. It goes pubs in the new year! So special pricing for you guys only…reserve your copy now and get it first!
Beginning Jan 1, 2013 the DVD will go back to normal price at $19.95!
Yay! So again, thank you guys for all of your support! I guess releasing a DVD for a fitness instructor or trainer is like a music artist releasing a new album! Kinda crazy huh? Speaking of crazy…I met Sam Tsui and Chester See a couple weeks ago!!! I asked Chester if I could use some of his music in our vids and he said yes! I’m hoping Sam will say the same but just waiting to hear back from him! They both were really cool, do you guys follow them? If not, you should! Great singers and musicians! I have been following Sam Tsui for a very long time so seeing him in person was so nuts! I was nervous but whatever, I got over it and introduced myself! I also hope to meet Ryan Higa one day and the whole YTF crew! He’s so funny and just wholesome good funny. Nothing crude or extremely political that it just goes over my head.
Who do you follow? Did I just go YouTube fangirl crazy on you right now? Sorry but those are great people I want to introduce you to!
Okay…I said this was gonna be a looooooong lifey type post so allow me to continue…
Well…you know I’ve been going to LA A LOTTTTT right? Like almost 2-3 times a month. For work. It’s been literally KILLING my diets and workouts and I really really REALLY hate traveling. I like being in new places but I HATE the act of traveling. Airplanes. Packing. Car rentals. Ugh. Ugh it all!
I wanted to move to LA when I first moved from Boston 1.5 years ago, but ended up in the SF Bay Area which was beautiful, (cold), but near mi familia. I went to middle school and high school in the bay so it was nice to be back on familiar grounds.
But POPsters! The time has come…
I just found an apartment in LA yesterday…and will be moving down to SoCal!
I’m really super happy and excited because I’ll be back where I grew up as a kid and went for college. I love LA and all that it offers (cept the traffic) and cannot wait to start anew down here. My main requirements when people asked me where I wanted to live were as follows:
- needs to be by a trader joes
- needs to be by a whole foods
- needs to be close to my gym
- nice neighborhood to run around
That’s it. Then I’d be happy.
And after daysssss of searching, I found the perfect place!
Hmmmm…I am not sure if I should be posting this because I didn’t tell my students at the gym yet…but umm…guys, if you are reading this…I’m telling you when I get back next week! That’s the one thing I hate about moving though…leaving my students. You create such a unique bond with your gym friends that takes a good amt. of time to build and flourish. To leave it…is just sad. Ugh.
But I guess that’s the whole reason why Blogilates is even here today! It started with me wanting to leave some videos for my LA students to work out to after I left for the East Coast.
Full circle huh?
And now we’re back in LA!
But you know what’s fun about moving? DECORATING!!!!!! I am a big Anthropologie FREAK and was browsing the store yesterday for bedding and fell in love…I cannot choose which one I should get. What do you guys think?
This is Georgina! I love the flowers.
And this is Rivulets. OMG ruffles galore.
Which do you like better? I can’t choose…help! I am also trying to decide what look I wanna go for in my new apt. I am thinking “beach cottage”. Do you think that’ll suit me? If you have any pinterest boards or looks you think I may like, please link me in the comments! Would love your design advice!
Okie dokie. I better get to bed. It’s been over an hour now. There is more exciting news to share later on. But I don’t wanna jinx anything by telling you too early! One thing at a time k? Just know I’m working hard for YOU!!!!
Happy Holidays and seriously guys…thanks so much for all of your love and enthusiasm for our community and for supporting me along this Youtube Pilates journey. You’re the best :)
PS – btw for those of you who noticed (bc I know you’re gonna comment on this) yes the cover had to undergo a last min change!
