Hips, Butt, Thighs & Internet Lies…SCANDAL ALERT!

Hey guys!

HAPPY MONDAY!!! Do my Americans have the day off? Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Just got back from teaching my second to last Sundance Pilates class. It was so wonderful to see you guys there!

popsters in utahSuch spectacular energy and good vibes. Thank you for making my early mornings so cheerful. I seriously LOOOOVEEEE meeting you guys in person. Last class is tomorrow 7:30am-8:30am at the YouTube House, 596 Main Street in Park City, Utah. Come if you can! It’s free.

Also! Here is your new workout!!! This one is fun – I turned the music up and stuck to some good, classic, and intense POP Pilates moves that will shape your lower body nicely. Print out the printable to take with you when you’re not by the computer. I’ve seen some POPsters creating lovely binders of printables. Being organized is a sign of a clean lifestyle inside and out! Now here’s the video…do it with me!

And now to a kinda bitter subject.

I want you guys to be REALLY CAREFUL with who you’re dealing with on the internet. You never know who is behind that screen – it simply acts as a mask. Anybody can pretend to be ANYBODY and if you’re not pay attention you can get tricked or bullied very easily.

I sent out a newsletter a few weeks ago alerting you of the Blogilates Crime Report and unfortunately, I have some news that I just need to get out here on my blog so that I can prevent other people and companies from being taken advantage of. Including me.

Several companies have been approached by some fake person named “Taylor” in Peabody, Massachusetts who has been impersonating me from the email blogilatestv@gmail.com which is NOT my email. My real emails are blogilates@gmail.com for business and POPsterPost@gmail.com for fan mail. She or he has been telling these companies that she’ll review their stuff if they send her free gifts. Then after they send it (sometimes hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of gifts), she goes quiet and I end up receiving emails from upset and confused companies that were expecting a full blown out post on my blog. Not very pleasant for either party is it?

I usually don’t like to bog you guys down with business-y, non-fitness related or somber information, but I think it’s really important that you protect your identity and truly WATCH who you’re dealing with. And especially for those of you who want to start blogs one day, you need to be aware that anyone can be anyone and some people don’t give a care who they’re hurting. As long as they get what they want, they’re done.

What kind of life is that? To steal someone else’s hard work and fool people. It’s robbery and it’s a crime. We are all put on this earth to contribute something special to one another’s lives. Each and everyone of us has a talent and we must nurture it, work on it, and use it help benefit others. Stealing is not ok in any shape or form. Never in my life could I ever EVEN THINK of doing something to abuse someone. Does that make anyone feel good? Really??

I’ve been robbed before and it’s freaking scary. I hate it. I hate that someone can take your possessions and invade your home and make you feel afraid. Powerless. This is the same thing. Except it’s my reputation and good will that’s on the line. I will not let anyone mess with that. “Taylor” I am warning you to get out of my house.

Below is a email thread between imposter “Taylor” and “Company X” which I will keep private for their security and protection. I am posting this because I want you to know how manipulative people can be…and how easy it is to get tricked.

Hi Person X,

 I’m definitely interested in reviewing items from the collections you sent me! I would love to make a gift guide or lookbook for the holidays. I really like the items in the Fall 2013 collection. I also have interest in reviewing clothing – I found a lot of great pieces on the website. I look forward to working with you! :)

Thanks,

Cassey

Hi Cassey,

No problem at all! That’s great you’re interested in featuring a variety of the items of your gift guide/look book for the holidays. We could definitely coordinate some of their yoga clothing as well if you’re also interested in that. Once you go through everything and determine what will work best, just let me know and I can let you know what we’re able to coordinate samples of.

Thanks,

Person

Hi Rachel,

That’s perfect! I will be doing multiple posts (probably 2 or 3). Here’s the shipping address:

I ship all of my packages under “TAYLOR” to ensure my privacy. Thank you!

Okay first of all everybody, if you follow me you’d know that I’m based in Los Angeles, CA and that you can actually write me or send stuff to my REAL NAME “Cassey Ho” at my PO BOX here:

5482 Wilshire Blvd #299

Los Angeles, California 90036

I also want you guys to know that if I ever do review or share something with you, it’s because I genuinely like it, believe in it and think it could somehow enhance your life. I don’t go around asking people for free stuff and then spam your feeds with my product endorsements. I keep the content quality here on Blogilates very high, and everything I do, I do it with your best interest in mind. ALWAYS.

I apologize to all of the companies who have been tricked into this debacle. Thank you for contacting me and helping me pinpoint the problem. I hope this all gets sorted out soon.

Thanks for listening guys! It means a lot to me that you come here daily to read my blog. The one thing I want you to take away from today’s post is this:

Live your life to your own best potential and embrace everything that makes you uniquely, YOU. This is how you become happy and successful.

Don’t be fake!!

<3 Cassey
