August Workout Calendar! Get PW by signing up for my newsletter.

 

Hey guys!

August. The last summer month. I always remember back to my school days where I would start getting more and more nervous as the first day of school got closer and closer! Ahh the nerves! But you know what made it easier? Having friends I could look forward to seeing.

I encourage you to surround yourself with people who make you happy and who actually are excited for you when something good happens, versus being jealous. I’m currently dealing with some *ahem* “divas” who only expect things out of our relationship. And you know what? That is when the unhappiness begins to creep in.

My life motto is “Give, give, give. The more you give, the more you receive.” Anyone who doesn’t believe in the same thing? Sorry, we can’t be friends!

ANYWAY…let’s talk about the August Workout Calendar!

Click to download

Each day is focused on one target area but we always start with a type of cardio to keep your heart your up! This will help burn more calories throughout the workout.

Be sure to check out August 9th! There’s a special birthday that day! 5 years ago I uploaded the “POP Pilates: Instense Ab Workout” and it’s been a classic ever since. Do it with me that day to celebrate!

Friday is a rest day where you will stretch and make some fun #cheapcleaneats recipes!

Additionally, you will find that on Saturday the 1st and the 15th, there is a workout you will not find on YouTube. That is an exclusive “Pilates Perfect Legs” routine you will only find in the Blogilates Official App (free to download on iPhone and Android)! Make sure you subscribe to the calendar in there and you will be given 100% of the videos in this month’s workout plan!

Also, I would love it if you could give the Blogilates app a rating! It really helps me continue to create more features inside the app if I know you like it. Thank you in advance :)

Oh! And here is the 7 day #Planksaroundtheworld challenge that the Calendar is referring too! Please see all the details on how to join the challenge on my Instagram @blogilates. It’s gonna be fun and there will be prizes!

Remember, if you’ve been itching to join the challenges but you feel like you’ll be annoying your friends with all of your fitness posts…then listen up! One of the most liberating things you can do is the start an Instagram account DEDICATED to your fitness journey! Follow other POPsters and I promise that they will follow you back. Make sure you’re using the hashtag #blogilates and you will find so many amazing people who share the same passions as you :)

And you know what? I love rewarding POPsters who are KILLING IT daily! Check out this new program we have!

popsteroftheweek

Every Friday, the I, along with the @blogilatesdesigns team will be looking to crown a POPster of the Week! If you read the blurb up there, you will get a sense of what we’re looking for. And every Friday, one special member of the community will be awarded a full Instagram feature on the @blogilatesdesigns page and s(he) will also win a $25 gift card to www.blogilatesdesigns.com. To be considered, just tag your IG pics with #blogilatesdesigns when you’re in Blogilates or BODYPOP gear! Or maybe it’s even your dog on a Blogilates mat! Or your latest detox bottle recipe!

Check out all the Detox Bottle Designs here.

Whatever it is…I wanna see more of you and thank YOU for being an amazing POPster.

I also want to address something here. I noticed that when I put up this post on Instagram, so many people were commenting that I was being “discriminatory” and “mean” for not putting “he”. The truth is, looking at the analytics of this blog, the YouTube channel, my social media pages etc…I can see your gender! And female is pretty close to 100% :) But to be clear, I will never out-rule a guy who shows major POP love.

Ok! That is all for now. I want you to print the calendar out. I want you to ask a friend to do it with you. And I want you to share a calendar selfie with me before you hang it up! Comment if you’re in!

    I love Cassey and all of her workouts, but is it just me noticing that the daily workouts and calendars she composed 2-3 years ago were a lot more difficult ? More cardio? I just add more in now to supplement…but are you all noticing a lot of fat burning with these current calendars?

    Maybe I’m in a workout rut….not stopping though. Still need my pop pilates daily! <3

  • Meg

    I seriously need help with not straining my neck! Just finished today’s work out, almost ???????? Any suggestions/tips? They would be greatly appreciated ????

  • Ana

    Hey Cassie and fellow POPsters, I have been doing the Blogilates monthly calendars for a while now, but I have always wondered what the “New Workout” every Monday is? When I don’t get an email on a Monday I just pick one of my favorites and do it in the place of this “New Workout”. Suggestions?

    • Abby

      Ana, Cassey always posts a new video on her YouTube channel, so that’s what the “New Workout” is referring to!

  • Anon

    Just in case no one found it, the “Bikini arms and back” for August 6th, is actually
    “How to Grow Taller. Exercises for Better Posture!”. Found it from Cassey Ho’s Twitter.

    Enjoy! :)

  • Samantha

    Does cassey ever read these comments? Just wondering because I’d like her to create an ab series for people with diastasis recti! I love all the videos but I can’t do any of the ab workouts due to this condition. Please make at least one ab video for this?

  • Luce

    Just finished the beginner’s calendar! Quick question: should I start the August calendar from the beginning or just pick it up on today’s date and move forward from there? Thanks guys, have fun this month!!

  • Niki

    For the date of August 6th on the calendar, I cannot find the bikini arms and back anywhere!!!

    • Karuna

      I couldn’t find it either! And we have to do it again on August 20th… if anyone finds it, can you please post the link here??

    • Tez

      Same!! I was hoping someone had found it :/

    • Ellen

      I know it’s late, but it’s How to Grow Taller video. At least that’s what the Blogilates app says :)

  • Telma

    I couldn’t find the “bikini arms & back”work out!

    • Satinder Kaur

      Me either! :(

  • Tina

    Hey Cassey,
    Just wondering if we’re supposed to do cardio in conjunction with these videos, and if so, how many days a week? After the cardio days are we supposed to go back and do the Pop Pilates day we missed or should we just do the current day’s workout?

    Thanks

  • J.Nice

    Question, if I’m starting the calendar late, is there anywhere else to see the videos? Doesn’t look like its on her youtube “playlist” and I can click on the day on the app -> pay .99 but I don’t know if it includes the links to the videos. Any help… Thanks!

  • jnoire

    I am now staring I can’t wait to start to love it like u all

  • Natalyne

    Cassey! Thank you so much for all that you do! I love following your workouts because it’s so fun, challenging (i love a good sweaty workout!), fuss-free (i love that we don’t need equipment at all) and convenient (I LOVE YOUR VIDEO PLAYLISTS! all i have to do is click play and follow along!!)!! I watched your videos 3 years ago and I’m very thankful and glad that not only have you continued making videos all these years, but you have also made it so much easier for us to follow along (love the timers and the video playlists)! <3 <3
    I can only imagine how many mean and negative comments you get on a daily basis, simply because you put yourself out there on the web, but thank you for staying strong and continuing to make videos for us!! <3
    following your workout videos make me so happy! thank you!!! (:

  • Malin

    Hi Cassey, I just wanted to say that I’m LOVING these challenges. I’m hoping they’ll just keep on going. I started a special IG account just for these challenges and it’s so much fun! :)
    I have a request ^^ I specially loved the #Journeytosplits, since we had a common goal to work for, and even though I wasn’t able to do the splits by the end of the month I saw a big improvement in my flexibility, and that’s the important thing. I’ll keep on stretching and hopefully I’ll be able to do the splits sooner than later :P
    So, the request: I’d love it if the next challenge would be a #JourneyToHeadStands, I’m sure we’re quite a large bunch of POPsters that would like to be able to do it, and it’s be easier to achieve it with your guidance ^^
    Thank you for keeping POP Pilates this amazing! Never boring for sure! <3

  • Lexy

    The only thing that sucks is when you download the app and you look for perfect legs and click on the video you have to pay for it :/ is it okay if I just do the perfect leg workouts that’s on YouTube instead since it’s free and basically kinda the same?

  • Jordan

    Hey all! So I just joined blogilates (yay!) and decided to do the work out calendar. However, I’m not sure where to get the work outs listed on the calendar, help?

    • Ess

      youtube.com/blogilates

      she posts playlists for the workouts everyday so you dont have to go searching for ’em! just go to the playlists section and it’ll all be there. good luck :)

    • Tina

      On her youtube channel she uploads a playlist of the workouts for each day. Also you can just search for the videos on her channel :)

  • PK

    Please post calendars in a larger font, so that they can be read easily. Or maybe a link will help….something.

    Thanks,

  • Anne

    is there a way when you print the calendars that they are bigger in print so you can read them the print is so small? thanks for all the time you put into this it seems to be a lot of work .Anne

    • Aleesha

      Hey Anne! Save the webpage as a picture on your desktop. Open it and print it from there! That’s what I did :) I hope this helps. xoxo

  • Tia

    Hey Ladies! I just wanted to tell ya’ll that I printed out the calendar at 120% and I can read it wonderfully now!

    Cassey, Thank you so much for the motivation and fun things we can on instagram. I don’t have one yet but I want one and you may be one of the only people on there but its still great and I truly enjoy your workouts. I have kept it up since April and I can see a difference. Thanks again and I am going to try out some of your gear soon.
    Love, Tia

    Hi, could anyone explain the “new video” on mondays? thanksss x

    • Angely

      She makes new videos every Monday and you have to search those ones up on her Blogilates channel on Youtube.

  • Connie

    Hey guys! I’m new here and I just checked out the workout calendar! Wow, it’s AMAZING, I really want to try it. But I’m wondering about that am I too young for this ( I’m 12). I mean, there’s a lot of strength tar inning means to gain muscle and I want to know that will gaining muscle have some affects on my height growing ? ( I’m not tall tho…) Plz reply, THX! ( I’m from Asia, so don’t judge my English… )

    • Lara

      I don’t think you’re too young. I’m 12 and I’m doing it.

  • Eri

    Any tips on what can help my lower back/tailbone pain…? I finished the beginners wo and July wo without any issues, but for one weird reason today’s wo was a bit challenging due to the dull pain on my lower back/tailbone pain… I constantly had to stop, which was disappointing for me because most of all the videos required me to be on my back… Help!

  • Shen Salarda

    Hi, Cassey and Fellow POPsters!

    I have been having weight loss issues due to my lifestyle. Working at night and sleeping by day does take a hard hit on my metabolism. Turning the big 3-0 in September, I want to take control of my life. I want to be more healthy and more lean than ever.

    I am so happy to have found this page. I have been doing some of the videos from YouTube last July. This time, I will try my best to follow the August 2015 Calendar. I am a few days late (it’s already August 3 here in MNL). Hoping to get the results I want soon. I’ve got 2 1/2 months left before the big day arrives! Can’t wait to be reunited with the man of my life. #longdistancerelationship

    Let’s do this! Goodluck fellow POPsters!
    Thank you so much Cassey. You are such an inspiration!

    “Train like a beast, look like a beauty.”

  • Jasmine

    This months calendar is super hard to read. I’ve printed your calendars before and they have been fine, but with this August one I can barley read it

    • Lauren

      Press “Click to download” it should become clearer then!

    • Tia

      Try printing it at 120% it worked for me. Good luck :)

  • Luiza

    the only thing that bothers me is the regular calendar doesn’t have links to the video like the begginers calendar has.

    • Maria

      She posts a playlist everyday on her youtube page! :)

      • Rebeca

        omg, really!?!? ♡ ♡ ♡ i’ve been spending some precious minutes looking for the vídeos, yoy’ve just made my day! Thknz :*

  • sirine

  • Connie

    Hi Cassey and all the other POPsters ! I’m new here. I just checked out the workout calendar and it seems awesome! But, I want to know that am I too little for this? ( I’m 12) I mean, will this affect my height, like…. Not growing up? Plz reply, THX!!!! LOVE U GUYS ALL!

  • Chelsey

    Almost finished with 3, 30 day challenges, abs, thighs and arms. What would be a good next step? Thanks!

  • Diana

    Is there anyway to print this out?

  • Popster

    So exciting for this calender ! But… I can’t workout, I’m sick. How to be fit when you can’t workout ? Can you write a post on this please ? Thanks !!

  • Meilan

    Hi from China! I’m a doing a student exchange in that food paradise and if not for your calendar, my body would hate me forever! I never managed to stay committed through a whole month calendar until now, but I hope I can make it through this month as I realized this week that I am the happiest girl in the world and working out just makes me even more happier, it brings me closer to the person that I want to be and that is somebody who shines with happiness. I really enjoy doing your workouts as they are fun and they have their own flavour. I really hope though you could include some videos suggestions for stretches in the calendar! I feel people tend not forget as much to warm up before doing their workouts, but often forget that when it’s done we should stretch our sore muscles. And sometimes it’s a little bit hard to target the right muscles right after the workout, as for myself, I feel no pain right after the workout, it’s the next day that I discover new muscles I never knew I had before.
    In any case, I really want to thank you for the time you take to make these beautiful calendars! I would be great if we could check them on the computer, as form instead of printing it (let’s save more trees!). Maybe a computer or Ipad/tablet version of the blogilates ap? I couldn’t find it for my Ipad and I don’t like it so much on my cellphone as a cellphone is such a small screen ):
    Let’s rock this august calendar together! It’s time to prepare the back to school look and who never dreamed of starting school over as a better person than the year before! xP

  • Hannah

    Cassey,
    Thank you so much for all you have done for your Popsters. You are such an inspiration! I am a rock climber and you have helped me train like a beast! And Happy Birthday! My bday is on the 8th so I will make sure that some of my cake goes to you! :)

  • Leena

    I am so far loving the new workout calendar! Even though I have only done it for one day… I was just wondering if it possible for me to get one of the water bottles here in the UK?

    • Tamia

      Hello
      Yes im sure they do ship to the UK and all the other countries. And if you cant get a Detox water bottle at the blogilates shop, im sure you can get a similar one at your local shopping centre!:)
      Thanks
      Tamia

  • Sheri

    I love your workouts and videos but this months calendar is really hard to read

  • Barbora

    Hi Cassey!!!! ???????? I’m from Czech republic (Europe), So I’m sorry for my bad English. You are my pattern!!!! ☺️ I started with your calendar today, it’s so hard ???? But I will try☺️…This is my first calendar from You.
    With love, Barbora ????☺️

  • Wendy

    Hi Cassey The workout Calender is unclear . I can’t read IT.I am following your Calender for some months now and I didn’t have this problem before.Please help ,I am subscribed so that isn’t the reason.
    By the way I really Love you and your workouts.Sometimes its a bit Crazy but aus you know I LOVE THE CHALLENGE although I am 43 yeasrs old
    I Love you Wendy

    • Hi, Wendy! I actually had the same problem too! i found that if you CLICK on the calender, it’ll direct and show you the full image much more clearly. Afterwards, you could download or print it from there. Hope this helps! :))

      • Wendy

        Hi Sandy
        IT worked , thank you very much .Now i can Start with the Calender.Yeeeh ????????????????

      • Milla-Maria

        Hi! Thanks for your help :) I also had the same problem, but now the calendar is clear :)

  • Aneesa

    Hi, Cassey!

    I just wanted to throw in my two cents regarding using “she/her/hers” pronouns in your posts:
    Even if it looks like almost 100% of the popster community is female, I think it’s really important to remember that many analytics tools, social media sites, etc. only allow a gender binary–so users must declare themselves male or female. But there are many folks who don’t actually identify as either, or who might use different pronouns–they/them/their, for instance, which can also be used as gender-neutral.
    I know it might not seem like a huge thing, but in my experience, this community is hands-down one of the warmest, most inclusive and encouraging ones out there on the internet, and I think switching to talking about popsters in a gender-neutral way would be just another step in adding to that inclusivity. Please think about it!

    POP Pilates has consistently pushed me to get and stay in shape since the middle of high school (over 5 years now!), so thank you so much for everything you do!! :)

    • Lisa

      Well said! when I saw the thing above about looking for the next popster of the week “Who is she?” my immediate thought was “Why can’t the popster of the week be a he?!” but your point is equally valid – celebrate diversity in all its forms :-)

  • Mia

    Hi Cassey,
    I just wanted to tell you….THANK YOU SO MUCH!! YOU ARE AWESOOOOOOOOOOME!!!! :) I wasn’t allowed to workout for a …. well… longer time that I wanted… :D A half year?! And I missed you soooo much!!!! I’m so happy that I can workout again moreover that I can do it with your support!! My legs are pretty sore after first workout and… I LOVE IT! I LOVE YOU! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING FOR ALL OF US. Thank you for who you are. ;)

    Hello! I’m so excited of this calendar, but I have a problem with printing it: I can’t get it to the right size, it’s always too small in the corner of the paper or too big and doesn’t fit to the paper :( and it doesn’t feel the same just looking it on the screen…please help me if you know how to print it.

    • Lisa

      If you’re not in the US it might be because US paper sizes are slightly different to other countries (well, I know they’re different to the UK, where I’m from). Try saving the calendar as an image and then paste it into Word or Publisher or similar, then resize it yourself to fit your paper.

  • Seda

    I finished beginner’s calendar 2 days ago and starting this today! Sooo excited! <3

    Good luck popsters!

    • Carmen

      I know me too I am so excited!!!

  • Anshata

    Hi Cassey!
    I have a doubt about The 7 days plank challenge: how many secs do we have to do each position?
    Does anyone know?
    Thanks!

    • Lisa

      I would say hold it for as long as you possibly can! :-)

  • Cris

    Hey Cassey, thanks for your inspiring work, I just would like to say that there must be thousands of male popsters so HE could be also the Pospter of the Week :D please don’t exclude them, mua!

  • Hey Cassey, Im so excited to be starting the August workout routine….

  • Kat

    I am so so so so in!! I cannot wait to do this calendar.
