Leading the plié squat leg warmup!

Hey guys!!

I hope you had a lovely weekend! I just got back from San Francisco teaching a couple big classes near Pier 39 at the SHAPE Magazine Summer Shape Up event with Jilllian Michaels.


It was so exciting to see you guys there sweating, smiling, and completely BEASTING it alongside me!!! I am so proud of you!!


Loved getting to know you better, hear your stories and how you began to take control of your life. You’re all so strong, beautiful, and vibrant! BTW, loved it when you guys had pose ideas! Had one POPster pick me up!! That was a first.

Going around and checking form. For the most part, really good.

 I was there all morning til 4pm. So between my classes, we walked around and of course…I dog stalked. This one, I call him “Little Lion Dog”. I think he must have been cold without his natural coat.

Thank you to all my POPsters who came out to work out with me! I need to do a huge meetup back in the bay some time soon! In fact…I need to do a huge national (maybe international) tour too! So this brings to mind a couple questions:

1. Where should I go?

2. What cool activities/things do you want at the meetup besides a class and a meet and greet?

Please let me know so I can start planning something epic. And when I say epic…I mean…I want this to be beyond memorable for you! I’ll be waiting anxiously for your comments.


Also! I posted a new video on Thursday on juicing since I’ve been getting a ton of questions on the subject. Will it help you look better? Feel better? Will those 7 day juice cleanses ACTUALLY make you lose weight for good?

Please watch the video to hear my thoughts on how I feel about juicing. Oh! And there’s also a giveaway happening on twitter right now for ten $25 gift cards to Jamba Juice to you can try their new whole fruit/veggie juices. All you have to do is write:

@blogilates @jambajuice If I were a fruit or veggie I’d be a … #juicebyjamba

Good luck! I will be choosing the winners randomly on Tuesday this week! Only open to US POPsters this time. But you can tweet as many times as you want!

Lastly, I want to leave you with this. The quote above resonates with me so much. Don’t you remember being a little girl (or boy) and thinking “One day I’m going to be president, a movie star, an astronaut, a princess, a doctor, a nobel prize winner…etc.”? I do.

When I was growing up I had huge dreams. (Still do!) I always wanted to be the best I could be no matter what. I would never settle for less. Sometimes that made the other kids not like me…sometimes it made me “uncool” – well, stereotypically uncool, but what now? To really be cool is to be confident in who you are, know what you want, and go after it.

So, now I’m a woman…and a woman with a dream to help guide people to discover their own best potential. All I ever want is for you to take something away from my videos and my blog, and light the fire in your own friends and families to live happier, healthier lives. That’s all I ask. Thank you for helping me live my vision every single day.

Much love,

<3 Cassey

I know a lot of people in this area would love seeing you.

    Hi Cassey
    I think you should do an international tour and come to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    You could do healthy cooking classes and also you could do a workshop to cut old t-shirts like you do on the DIY videos. And another thing you could do is dance classes or a dance off
