The Blogilates Social Network + Best Thigh Slimming Exercises

blogilates profile

Hey guys!

Do you see the beauty that is that photo above? Yes. The Blogilates Social Network (beta) has LAUNCHED!!!

2 YEARS in the making.  THOUSANDS of development hours later…your ideas and my vision have intertwined to create this ultimate health and fitness haven.

What is it exactly?

Well, imagine a place where you can go in and be immediately embraced by love and inspiration from people all over the world. A place where all your friends support you and actually want to see you succeed. A place where you can equally exchange ideas, tips, and stories with people who appreciate your contribution and who need you as much as you need them.

This community is made up of POPsters from all over the globe who you may not know yet, but will become very close friends with very soon :) If you share a passion for sweat, salads, smoothies, and motivation…this is the place for you!

Why did I start it?

Back in 2012 was the first time Facebook started charging me to share my posts with you guys. And no, I am not talking about “sponsored ads.” They changed the algorithm so that if I (the owner of a fanpage) posted a status update, like a simple picture of me stretching, NATURALLY the picture would only show up in the main feed for 10-12% of my facebook fans. Why? Well see below:

facebook charging

I understand that every company needs to make money, but not like this. $1000 so that I can show all of you guys my new yoga pose? Back in the day, what I post is what you see! Because you made the effort to come all the way over from YouTube or this blog to give me your “like” and subscribe to my posts. But nooooo, facebook didn’t want it that way, not without a price.

I was OUTRAGED! Not only did my likes go down, but the worst was the loss of the community we had on there. I used to be able to see your posts, reply to them, and get a sense for who you were. But after that, no more. I felt sooo disconnected from you.

So what was a girl to do?

Start her own social network. THE BLOGILATES SOCIAL NETWORK.

blogilates map

THE MAP. It’s amazing how you can take anger and frustration and turn it into positive energy :) Above is one of my fave features from the Blogilates Social Network! It’s the POPster map! This was a snapshot from yesterday as people were pinning themselves! Soon enough, you’ll be able to find local POPsters in your city to workout with, train for a half marathon with, or even just grab brunch with! The point is the connect you guys together…to make real, long lasting, healthy friendships.

[Note: Currently we are dealing with some bugs in the beta mode of the Blogilates Social Network, which includes the location pinpoint issue. If you are adding your location and don’t see yourself on the map, please be patient! We are working on fixing this issue!]

my.blogilates leaderboard

GROUPS. One of the best parts of planning the site for you guys was thinking up what groups you would want to join! This is a fantastic way to meet other POPsters with your same interests. Some are by location (ie. Aussie POPsters) and some are by hobbies like “runners”. Join as many as you fancy!

THE LEADERBOARD. Oooh? Did we never discuss? You’ll see that when you’re logged in, you are able to earn POPster Points. What does that mean and how and where and omg!!??? Haha, you shall see :)

blogilates workout calendar

THE CALENDAR. Working out couldn’t be any easier. Here is your #AprilAbs workout calendar complete with playlist :)

blogilates forum

THE FORUM. So far, I am most addicted to the conversations in the forums. I LOVE how you guys are spilling out your real thoughts and emotions in here. I think it has to do with this one common thread we all share. We trust each other and we know we’re here to genuinely help one another. Guys, this is special. Never lose this.

Guys, after 2 years of developing this site and starting from SCRATCH with 3 different development companies, I can’t believe we finally launched! It really took me so long because I only wanted to give you EXCELLENCE. Nothing less.

The first 2 companies I worked with delivered sub-excellence and I wouldn’t have it. We were so close to launching both times but I said, if it isn’t going to be good enough for my POPsters then it isn’t going to ever go live. The time and the money spent over and over again on getting this right finally paid off…because after seeing your tweets to me upon initial launch, I knew you appreciated everything you saw :)

Oh and ummm…upon launch y’all broke the internet. The site died for a good 40 min before my developers could put it back together. You were stampeding to my.blogilates.com!! It was a scary but proud moment for us all I think :P

Now, the site isn’t perfect. We’re still in beta and from your responses, I know that there is a page loading time issue and a profile editing issue. Please be patient as we debug everything! Also, comment below if you see anything weird with the site. You feedback is necessary to make the site better and better every day!

Anyway…I really hope you guys like it! This project is made just for you :)

OH!! And before I forget, here is my latest video “5 Best Thigh Slimming Exercises”:

The 5 best exercises to sculpt your thighs are:

1. Inner thigh lift

2. Pointed inner thigh lift

3. Criss-cross scissors

4. Leg circle Lowers

5. Butterfly kickouts

Alrighty guys…GO MAKE a my.blogilates.com account now!!! I’ll see you on the inside. And don’t forget to add me as a friend!

    I wanted to check the site out since i hadn’t been there in a while. Now it’s gone. i really want to know what happend.

  • Shaylyn

    Did my.blogilates.com get taken down or something? The links all direct me back to this website, anyone know why?

  • SondraVee

    Hi there!
    I was wondering what happened to the community?
    It seems to be gone, the link is redirected to the blogilates homepage?

    Thanks for any news on this. :)

    • Diana

      I wonder the same thing!! Cassey please answer!!

      • Nicole

        Same

        • Amanda

          Same here! Loved having all the daily videos all lined up, but with some effort I can prepare them the night before instead, it was just super convenient having them ready! Any plans on bringing the site back?

    • supremely

      any update on what happened to the social network??

  • At this time it sounds like WordPress is the top blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  • Miruna

    You are just AMAIZING Cassey! I love you! For real. I like your new social network. It is a great idea. But you have to fix the notifications. I can’t see them. Anyway, you are doing a great work. You are helping so many of us to live healthy lives and be stronger. Cassey, you are serious motivation. :)

  • I LOVE the social network!! It’s soooo so great!! Congrats. I have three ideas to improve: Today’s workout keeps landing on april 7. And second, when you message a person – the newest messages are at the bottom so you have to scroll all the way down to read the newest message. Also, third, I love the design but each time I click on something in my menu in my profile – I have to scroll down to see it – which means that the profile info etc. takes up a lot of space… I don’t know how this could be improved…. Maybe the menu could be deleted, since it is also in the right side of the website – as far as I can see. And maybe the trophy-thing can be removed or minimized – maybe next to the name – because it takes up about an inch of space.. :) But I love that you have done this, it shows that you have a passion and you fight hard to achieve your goals!! you are of great inspiration!

    • may alrent

      how can i post something here ?

  • Christina Henderson

    This is so beautiful! I think I will have an easier time staying motivated and active.

  • BIkkaTeeks

    I LOVE YOU Cassey.
    No, really. Thank you for all the videos and now for the social networking site! I found you a some weeks ago and I’m hooked. I joined the website a few hours ago and now I have friends and having conversations, giving supports, and receiving them. This is amazing. THANK YOU and keep up the good work! Sending tons of good karma your way! XOXO

  • Rachel

    Hey there! Here’s a bug I found – I’m trying to edit my “base profile” and get this error every time: “Please make sure you fill in all required fields in this profile field group before saving. ”
    I’m filling in ALL the fields, and I’ve tried in both Safari and Firefox.
    I’ll keep trying :)

    • Jessica

      Same thing keeps happening to me too! Hopefully it will get sorted soon :)

  • Carina

    Hey Cassey!

    I don’t know what to do. Please help me i really want to use this platform :/

    • Julia H

      • Carina

        Yes i have but they’re not in there either. I checked every folder there is :/
        But thanks for the suggestion :)

  • Ashley

    I;m still wondering what the PoPster points are for! #curious

  • Pris Bustamante

    I don´t understand all the complains about the calendar being available only at the social network, it is still available here, and the videos are at YouTube as well…

  • Kristy

    The site worked fine yesterday and I loved it but today it won’t let me login. It keeps saying “unspecified error”

    Kristy

  • Angelique

  • Caitlin

    Hi Cassie!!!

    I want to go on the new site, but it’s not loading for me:(
    should I try something else?

    Caitlin

  • Izzy Burridge

    Cassey, someone thought of a name for the may calendar on the app, we would like to ask for it to be focused on the lower body and butt: so it could be called May Bootay! Or something like that… :) thanks so much for these monthly calendars you do for us, we appreciate it!

  • Daniela

    Dear Cassey:

    I love your website and everything you do with that kickass energy you have! I’ve been following your workouts as much as I can, every morning specially. Thing is, I cannot enter the new website, therefore I can’t watch all the videos for todays workout: :/ I’m from Chile, would that be the reason why? I get is a beta version, but I hope it will work soon :)
    Thank you for cheering me everyday to shape my body the way I want it!
    Lots of love!!

  • Julia H

    Hi Cassie!

    I tried to create an account but I keep on getting invalid keylinks :( Could you please ask your people to fix this?

  • Navina Bonsack

    I NEED HELP BECAUSE I CANT REGISTER!

    Dear Cassey and dear community,

    you are great and such an inspiration and therefore I love talking with you guys. Cassey, the idea of an social network is fantastic but I’ve got a problem. I tried to register three times now and I neither get an confirmation e-mail, nor can I log in! I’m so sag especially because your calender is only availbale at the network. I hope you can help me guys because I want to be part of our network too!

  • Lena

    I just signed up for it and am amazed with all the supportive and friendly POPsters out there!
    But I was wondering if I could somehow link my account to my Facebook account? I noticed that I was given the choice of doing that when I was creating the account and I now regret not linking it :/

  • Briana Courtney

    That’s awesome! Oh, and this has nothing to do with this post, but I noticed some of the items in your shop like the seamless thongs don’t have an XS size, and me, being a tiny 15 year old, would LOVE it if you made some! Thanks Casey! You are such an inspiration! :)

  • Anne

    Hello Cassey
    I am so happy to join this social media platfrom. I keep sharing ideas and thoughts and found few good friends here.
    NOTE: I am facing problems with the POPsters point. It is all stuck to a number and only increases when I am adding a buddy. I am just curious to be visible on the leader board too but I am stuck. Please help. Thankyou.

  • Amanda

    Hi Cassey.

    Thanks for providing a community for your followers! I like the site. I’ve tried to edit my profile and even though I’ve filled in every box, I keep getting an error message that says: Please make sure you fill in all the required fields in this profile group before saving. Thanks again.

  • Dayna

  • Irmina

    Cassey! I love your social media platform! I had problems with finding POPsters in my country and now it’s no problem! Thank you:)
