Hey POPsters!

I developed this Beginner’s calendar to help those of you who are just starting out on your fitness journey and are unsure about how to ease into the routines. I want you to know that you are capable of ANYTHING and that all it takes is a little practice. This is a structured 4 week plan and compilation of videos that will really help you understand the basics of Pilates – like proper form, proper breathing, mind-body connection. Once you finish this calendar, I guarantee you’ll be ready to do the monthly calendars!

HOW TO USE:

1. Subscribe to YouTube.com/Blogilates

2. Print the calendar and hang on your wall

3. Do each of the videos once (video playlists are listed per day in the table above)

4. Check mark each video you do

5. Sign off and then tweet or instagram me your accomplishment @Blogilates! (I highly recommend creating a twitter and instagram account to get more active in the Blogilates community. It is also easy to communicate with me there!)

NOTES:

New workout videos are uploaded every Monday on YouTube.com/Blogilates. “Cheap Clean Eats” recipes also air every Thursday for your healthy foodie desires :) Although the new vids are not included on the Beginner’s Calendar, I encourage you to take a look at them when they come out. Please try if you want to challenge yourself! If you can’t do it anymore, just stop, and start again. NO BIG DEAL. Breaks are ok. Everything you do is PROGRESS!

Do the best you can! All it takes is hard work and determination. If you want it bad enough, your dream of becoming fit will turn into a reality. I promise.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I am your friend and your instructor and I am here for you!

<3 Cassey

    Losing weight tops my new year’s resolution lists this 2015. My friend introduced me last year to Pilates, but I’m such a procrastinator. I really want to be back on track again and face those morning grind by injecting my daily exercise again to my schedule. That calendar is such a big help for me. Looking forward to an amazing transformation with this blogilates calendar.

    Is there a calender after the beginners one? one a little harder? And maybe has like protien and whey shots to take before and after the work outs? I’m loving this website !!

  4. I have a question, before doing the videos mentioned in the calender, should you stretch and warm up? Because it specificly says to stretch on day 4, so I am not completely certain. Also before and after videos in general? If it is only a 6 min. work out, do you really need to stretch and warm up before hand?
    Thanks in advance to anyone who answers :)

    • Hi Kirstine!

      Yes you should always stretch. There are a couple of good stretching video’s Cassey made. It will help you avoid injuries. Good luck!

    • Yes u should stretch before and after all workouts even on rest/stretch days
      It will help from mucle strains or other injuries

  5. MUST LOSE FAT says:

    how much fat do you lose when your done?????
    PLEAS REPLAY:)

  6. I’m having a lot of fun doing your 30 day challenge…… sort-of. I am in medical school and studying or working constantly so I’m not doing the whole thing, but I start the day with 10 push-ups and then do one of the videos for the day on your calendar before bed. Day 2 and going strong!

    My problem is the eating. I get too little sleep and spend a lot of time commuting, in lectures, and reading and it seems that every time I sit down I get so sleepy. I end up eating to stay awake because I have to get the reading done. I don’t drink coffee or tea. Any suggestions on other ways to stay awake during lectures and studying? And is there any way just doing the exercises will help me improve my weight and body shape if I don’t change my eating habits?

    • Hi Linnea,

      Exercising, especially in the morning will help you wake up a bit more, but there’s no real substitution for getting enough sleep! One thing I’ve found helped me stay awake at work was trying to cut back on refined carbohydrates (white bread, white pasta etc) and replacing those with whole grains as well as cutting back in sugar. I definitely noticed I’ve stopped getting those post lunch crashes.

      Doing the exercises alone will improve your muscles and your body shape (particularly if you’re not particularly overweight) but if you don’t change your eating habits at all you’re unlikely to lose much weight.

      I definitely can relate to that hardcore studying phase so good luck! The more you look after your body the better you’ll feel!

  7. I had lost 55 pounds in 5 months doing blogilates and eating clean, then I found out I was pregnant!! I had by baby exactly a month ago. The dr said I can start working out again so I am starting from the very beginning, the beginners workout calendar. Can’t wait to be slim and toned again!

    Just finished #Day1 .
    So happy, motivated and proud of myself! :)

  9. I’m loving the beginner calendar
    Can’t wait to go onto the monthly one!
    You’re the best Cassey

  10. Hi Cassey,
    my doctor and my psychologist recommended me to train in the morning to be awake in the morning. Could you advise me a routine to do that is not too long please?

    Thanks a lot,
    Maude

  11. First of all: Thank you Cassey for offering your passion and these workouts for free!
    As I am starting this calendar for the fourth time now, I wondered if you would consider making a DVD out of the beginner videos? I often don’t have good internet and therefore have to take breaks in the middle of some exercises to get the video going again. Pleeeaaase?! :*

  12. Hi! I am loving this, and I’ve even gotten my husband to join me. He rolls his eyes sometimes, but it’s totally kicking his butt. (The other morning he was looking in the mirror, and said “hmm… My shoulder hair is gonna look weird in my backless dress…” Completely deadpan. Love him.) anyway, my question is this: any sort of teaser move, or when you have us on our tailbones, I either fall off to either side, or if I manage to stay balanced on the center, my tailbone hurts. Is this normal and just part of the process, or is there something I can do to minimize the pressure on my tailbone? My family says I’ve always had a bony butt… Also, my hips do this fun tendon-rolling-over-bone popping thing. I’m used to that one, and while its uncomfortable, it isn’t painful. I danced a lot growing up, so I dealt with it then. Just wondered if anyone had ideas on how to deal with that, too.

    thanks!

  13. Hi Ali. I have the same problem. I forget, or I don’t have time for lik 3 days in a row. It makes me feel like I’ve failed, and have to wait until the next month to start again, and then the same thing happens. But this month I have decided that when I miss days, I will just come back to it from where I left off.

    I think I did day 1 on the 3rd, day 2 on the 5th and only today on the 8th am I up to day 3.
    Sure, it’s not as solid as if I were remembering every day, but I can keep that feeling of moving forward, despite missing my work outs some days. I WILL get to the end of this calendar, even if it takes me 2 months. And surely that sense of accomplishment is better than feeling disheartened by my attempt to take better care of my health, I I am always moving towards that accomplishment, not constantly feeling like I have failed /again/.

    Perhaps this approach may be helpful for you too as you find a way to work pilates into part of your daily routine?

    All the best, Ali. You can do this. <3
