Hey POPsters!

Welcome to the Beginner’s Calendar 2.0! Lots of you were asking for an updated beginners calendar with all the new videos so I thought the beginning of the year would be a perfect time to do it!

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!


1. Subscribe to

2. Print the calendar and hang it 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!

6. Download the Blogilates App (free on iPhone and Android) to make friends in there! It’s such a fun and inspiring community! This calendar is available there as well. For only 99c you get all your videos in one place (no need to search YouTube) and you get to electronically check off your daily achievements. It’s pretty cool!


New workout videos are uploaded every Monday on 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!

    Hey! So I’m on week 4 of the beginner workout and even though I’m pretty far in, I still somewhat feel weak and like I keep taking too many breaks. Do you suggest that I try going through the calendar again once I’m done with it or should I move on?

  • Helen McArdle

    Hey Cassey. I started the beginner’s plan today with the total body workout. I only made it half way through! What do I do? Do I keep trying the same thing until I finish it? Or do I just try the next day on the calendar tomorrow? Trying to stay positive but a bit disheartened.

  • Bethany Fief

    Hi Cassey!! I just finished your beginners workout and loved it! I broke my foot pretty bad last week and cannot put any pressure on it whatsoever. I am an avid fitness lover and have been doing military style workouts at a boot camp class full of heavy lifting and running. I was getting stronger but didn’t feel like I was trimming down. I’ve been really eating healthy and am about 85/15 right now with my food. Two questions! 1) will the beginners workout program work for those who cant stand? :( And 2) since I’m obviously very limited I won’t be able to do burpees or a ton of cardio. Do you think the program will help me keep my strength and trim down during this crappy six months!? Of course right in the middle of summer! But I don’t want to give up!!! Thanks so much! -B-

    I’m on day 17 of this Beginners 2.0 challenge (the longest I’ve ever committed to a workout plan!) But I thought I would be getting better at it by now! How long does it typically take to get better and stronger at these types of workouts?

  • Lily

    Hey guys just about to start this challenge but pretty new at this! Have ye guys found it helpful and what do ye feel it helps?

  • Loise

    Hi Cassey!
    I just stumbled upon your videos in youtube while search for some body workouts and I enjoyed your videos a lot.
    I am planning to do this Beginners Plan workout, can’t wait to see the improvements!

  • Emily

    Hey, I’m just about to start on the beginner calendar! About how long does each workout take? Need to plan how much time I will need every day.

  • Maya

    Heyy, how long do you think it takes someone to move from being a beginner to being intermediate?

  • Tiff

    Hi Cassey!
    I did my first pop beginner today and when it came to legs I couldn’t do barely anything caus it hurt so bad in hips! Now I’m a big walker, pushing my double pram so do you think my form wasn’t right? I didn’t feel any burn in my legs or butt!
    Thanks :)

  • Sara

    Would it be a problem if I star this tomorrow? I know it’s not the first day of the month but I only found about this like..on Friday. I plan on following the 4 weeks, but I’ll be a week late…

  • Robert Kleinert

    Hi Cassey,
    got a quick question regarding days 1 and 2: Both days include ab workout, but as far as I know (my wife is a physical therapist) you have to give each muscle group a rest of 48 hours in order to let them grow?

    I’m so proud of myself, because I did it! I’ve lost 4kg (almost 9 pounds) and I’ve never felt better! I’m definitely going to continue with the monthly calendar.
