Do you have a strong woman in your life? GIVEAWAY TIME!

Hey guys!

Mother’s Day is coming up and I’m trying to be a good daughter by planning a lil trip for my fam this weekend! Actually, Jackelyn pushed me to stop working on the weekends and she’s helping me get everyone together. I got us a cool AirBnB on the beach!

My mom loves the ocean and sunsets so I think she’ll enjoy it. She works so hard taking care of the family, so I really wanted to surprise her with something special.

Do you guys think I should vlog it? Maybe take some photoshoot pics? Either way, it should be a good mini vacay with the fam. I hope we don’t end up just yelling at each other the whole entire time….I’m going to try to instill the relaxation vibes as soon as we get there! :D

Mother’s Day.

Obviously a day to honor all the mama’s in the land, but also a day to send love to ALL the strong women in our lives too. One of my good friends from high school just gave birth to her first baby boy today! It is SO CRAZY what women can do. WE MAKE HUMANS.

WHAT.

I’m making an effort to spend more time with my girl friends this year because they make me happy. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful, positive, smart and talented ladies like these…

Last night when I was at UC Riverside teaching a POP Pilates Class and doing a Q&A, one of the questions asked was “How does it feel to be a part of the Girl Love Squad?” Hahaha – I didn’t even know our friend group aka “squad” had a title. But I guess it does now and I’m ok sticking to it!

The squad consists of Rosanna Pansino, Lilly Singh, Justine Ezarik, Lindsey Stirling, and me! We naturally formed a bond when we all went to dinner together and started connecting over discussions regarding business, YouTube, boyfriends, managers, and being our own girl boss etc. I love that we all have different talents and bring something unique to the table in a humble and grateful way. So to answer that POPster’s question on how I feel about being part of the Girl Love Squad…I honestly feel…included.

I know that is a weird thing to say but I’ve never been “popular” and I always have felt left out when it came to social activities. But now, I feel like I have friends who get me, accept me, and respect me. It’s a really nice feeling :)

But also!! I feel like I am a real life Sailor Scout out to fight evil and promote happiness!

Hmm, actually I think these Disney princesses are much more accurate. 

BTW…I am working on a new Disney Princess sketch for you guys that focuses on DIETS. I think you will love it! Hopefully it’ll come out by the end of the month if we get everything together!

I really hope you guys are CHOOSING to surround yourself with inspirational friends who encourage you to be better versions of yourself everyday. Get rid of that negative, competitive attitude that many women have towards each other. Choose to LIFT each other up and help each other GROW, instead of tearing each other down. Learn from each other. Be kind to each other.

On this planet, we all have this one life to live. So choose to make it the best, most positive experience. It starts with people. And it ends with love. We all want to be loved, so choose to give love to someone else. It’s the best gift anyone can give.

Now…in honor of Mother’s Day, I’m giving you a chance to win this POPFLEX x PIIT28 prize pack for you AND another strong woman in your life! That means I’m giving away 2 of these prize packs!

  • Crissie Woolard

    My mom definitely deserves this. She is the most selfless person I have ever met. She does so so much for others but never for herself. She has taught me how to love unconditionally and I love her beyond words. Thanks so much for the giveaway and happy Mother’s Day

  • Janice

    I would be thrilled to be able to give this to my mother as a mother’s day gift :) She is the most amazing woman and I am incredibly blessed to have her in my life.

  • Elisabeth Redman Briant

    My mom is my rock! She and my dad raised me and my siblings (14 of us) and still made time to exercise and eat right!! She is a saint and deserves everything in the world! I whole heartedly believe that my mom would benefit from this! I wish I could give her something this special for everything that she has done for me! She encouraged me and my siblings to “shoot for the moon. And even if you fall short, You’ll land among the stars.” I love my mom for so many, many reasons, but most of all I love her because she never gave up on me! She is my biggest encouragement and my greatest roll model!!

  • Gabby B.

    Cassey I was wondering what day do we find out the winner? Cause wasn’t it over at 10am this morning? Not trying to be mean or impatient, I just sincerely was wondering. Love ya!💕

    • Meher

      she might’ve meant 10pm, not sure

  • Cindy Tan

    Would definitely give it to my best girl friend. Both of us are international students studying in Australia. We studied at once of the most prestigious university in Melbourne, so everything was not easy. We need to study really really hard to pass the exams, especially since we come from a country where the education standards are set lower than Australia. Moreover, English is not our first language, thus it makes the whole thing more thrilling and challenging! For me, everything was great. What I need to go through is typical international student life, but for my best friend, in the middle of her course, her dad’s business got a problem, so her dad cannot fund her anymore. That was a major problem for us, international students. First of all, international students have limited working rights in Australia, only 20 hours maximum per week. Also, it is hard for “foreigners” to get a job as Australia would prioritise the locals (no hard feelings; totally understand). The only jobs left for international students are usually very very underpaid (because locals would not want to get those jobs) and “illegal” as it is not registered, so my best friend got it. As the job is unregistered, she can work more than 20 hours, but of course, highly underpaid. She worked really hard. Once she only slept for 3 hours everyday for a week, because she got work to do and exam on the same time! However, the craziest part about this is that she NEVER complained about it. She didn’t ask for anyone’s pity. She never blame her dad. She never said “I wish this didn’t happen to me”. She just endured it all. And she is happy. H.A.P.P.Y. She managed to give thanks under any circumstances. SHe survived the exams and get mostly HD. How awesome! Bestie, you really are my role model. I am so proud of you <3

    There are so many ups and downs in my life eapecially when it comes to family and friendship. My (mental) illness literally gives me this love-hate relationship between my family, best friends, and I. But none of them has given up on my circumstances. I have so many strong people in my life because of that but for this giveaway, two people come to my mind — my mother and my best friend. Both of them deserve this Prize Pack for so many reasons. To my mother, who’s currently stressed out because she and my dad sacrificed a semi/luxurious life in tropics to move and give my siblings and I a better future. And then there’s one of my best friends, who’s so patient even how distant I become. She’s turning 21 soon and I would LOVE to give this to her as a present. I’m caught in a dilemma right now!!

    My mami ist the strongest woman in my life. She trains so hard and motivates me and my bro to do so as well. Before she was very self conscious and she’ll only go to the gym with a friend, never alone. Now she loves it and she trains whenever she can, alone or whatever; she even made her own crew at the gym. I admire how she tries to train even a little every day because her schedule is very complicated and she must travel a lot.I think PIIT28 will help her and me spend more time together and achieve our goals.

  • Jessy María

    My mami deserves this Prize Pack because she is always training hard and motivating me and my brother to do so as well. Even though her schedule is super complicated because she has to travel almost once a week, she finds time to do her workout and when she does it she feel like the happiest woman in the world. I love how she tells me about how she challenges herself doing heavier lifts or just mastering a move she thought she’ll never be able to do.
    I think PIIT28 will help her and me spend more time together and achieve our goals.

  • Katherine S

    The most powerful and inspirational female figure in my life is my mother. Yes, this is a generic answer, but that does not strip any truth from it. As a single parent she raised my sister and I to be strong, as well as to never waste a moment being rude or angry. Without laying a hand on me she disciplined and taught to always consider the perspective of others. She is both my role model and my best friend, and that is why there is no one else I would rather share this prize and continue my fitness journey with. Thank you Cassey for your great generosity, You are yet another important female figure and my life and have helped me through so much, even if you are unaware of it. Good luck to everyone!

  • ambra shiroka

    if i had a srong women in my life she would definitely be my mum.She is the one that suports me ,the one that protected and by that i dont only mean in advising ,but being the shield of mine many cases when i was little . For me and my sister she has gone through circumstances than a normal woman would never allow but she did it .I dont know if any of you can understand it ,i can now, that a real woman can barre anything to maintain her family.Thats my mum .The one and only hero of mine .The only person that knows and suport my dreams 🙏🏻🙌❤️

    (Entry #2)

    Hi (again) Cassey!

    I previously discussed why I would share the pack with my mother, but I now want to talk about my beautiful best friend Suhani. I’ve known her since the third grade (we’re both now in 7th grade), and she’s one of the strongest and most supportive people I know. She’s always there for me, and so easy to talk to. She’s been through her fair share of hard things (I don’t know if she’s comfortable sharing, so I won’t go into details), and she’s stayed strong through all of it. We’re both very involved with fitness and we love working out. It’d be so fun to go on the PIIT28 and 28 day reset journey with her, as we have done with every other journey in our life. I’d like to once again restate, in case you haven’t read my previous entry, that you (Cassey) are also an incredibly strong woman in my life. You inspire me to be active everyday and stay confident no matter what! Your positive vibes make my day and I can’t imagine working out with out you. Love you!

    – Meher

    Hi Cassey!
    I’d give the prize pack to my mom because she is definitely a strong woman in my life. I’m too young (13 years old) to have been through anything incredibly difficult in my life, but even through the small things my mom has been there for me. She is the most emotionally strong and spiritual person I know, taking every challenge in life head on. She never gets discouraged no matter what. There was a time a few months ago when neither of my parents had jobs, and it was very stressful, but she was still able to push all of us through and she’s very happy at her new job. My mom and I are both incredibly busy and I LOVE the fact that your program requires such little time to be taken out of our day to workout. The transformations of some other popsters are incredibly inspiring and I would love to have an oppurtunity to try out your program (with my mom of course)!! I’d just like to tell you that you are an incredible and strong woman in my life as well, always pushing me to the limits. I love how much you care about all of your followers and I especially love the positive energy you spread. Keep doing what you’re doing Cassey, you are changing lives!

    Hi Cassey! I would love to win this contest – the May calendar has really made me love the PIIT style workouts! If I won this I would share it with my Mom. She is the strongest person I know and 5 kids later she is still kicking. This would only make her stronger by helping her reach her goal of eating better and getting back in her pre mommy shape!

  • Kate

    Hey Cassey! I was just wondering, when are you going to post the winner?

    • Gabby B.

      I think she will post it within an hour or two. She’s probably still deciding. 🤗💕

  • Gabrieli Rigoni

    I have a lot of strong women in my life. First of all I have my mom, then the blogilates community, my aunt, my friends from college, so much great women… But one is special: my BEST FRIEND MIRIAN 💕 She is the most supporting​ person in the world! She always put me up when I’m feeling down. Together we are complete like one, we met in the college and never be apart. Our friendship is that one that last forever. Unfortunately we don’t live in the same city, we don’t study together anymore but I always feel like she is by my side. So this is why she deserves win this contest with me. ♥

  • NICOLE VIZER

    Hello Cassey! I hope you are having a wonderful year so far! My mom is seriously the best mom anyone could ever have. I play cello and she takes me to my practice for the Symphony I’m in every week. Also, she takes me to my private cello lesson. Not only that, but she always supports me with everything I do, including track and field! Honestly, you inspired me to join track and field to show my friends that I wasn’t just a girly-girl and could be fit. With my mom and your support, I am able to be confident in myself and actually have fun working out! I love working out with my mom to your videos and I absolutely adore your clothing! My mom is trying very hard to lose weight by eating a more balanced diet and sticking to your monthly workout calendar. Recently, we have actually adopted a puppy from the streets of New Delhi, India for my mom’s birthday! That makes her schedule even more full by having to take care of my cello routines and three pets (we also have two guinea pigs). So, thank you so much for all of the support and my mom and I feel that you have a great purpose when working out and your spirit keeps us going. My friends have actually gone through depression and almost suicide, which is sad, but their moms and even my mom was there for them. She is seriously so supportive and helped my friends with recovery. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for my mom and I, as well as you! (My dad and I were planning on taking my mom to Disney, which is where she wanted to go!)
    Your avid workout fam,
    Nicki
    P.S. (I hope you and your family have a wonderful vacay! You totally deserve it considering all you’ve been through! And thank you so much for the confidence and support because sometimes I feel left out of social things and not “popular”, but you and my mom always give me the support I need!)

  • Rachel Cooper

    I’d give my prize pack to my mother. She’s currently on a health kick at that moment, she’s wonderful inside and out but would love to help her feel as beautiful as she really is!

  • Katie Patchell

    Ahh–just saw the email, so hopefully it’s not too late. My mom means so much to me because…wow. For so many things. One of the things that stands out is she raised me as a single mom, and made sure that I never knew how poor we were. Years later she told me that at the end of every month she counted pennies (literally) to see that we could buy milk…yet I never knew. As far as I knew, my home was stable, life was fun, and my mom was both playmate and teacher. She sacrificed so much and taught me (looking back now) how to do the same for those you love, and when God blessed us (which is very, very true, and He so did) with the chance to live with my grandma, my mom made sure to march into the Welfare office and take herself off the list. She smiled, and thanked them so much (they were shocked), and in this too she taught me that when you need help, take it, but to then do your darnedest to stand on your feet. And when you do, to thank those who helped you.

    Ok, so our relationship hasn’t always been perfect–we butted heads a lot (and still do occasionally), but as a 21 yr. old, just-graduated-college person, I’m happy to say that we’re at the place where we can TALK about issues without floor stomping. :) I’m a really strong-willed, driven, passionate person, and I learned how to embrace this AND also tone it down because of my mom. She always, ALWAYS puts others first and thinks of them (dating back to the time when I was 4 or 5 and she–gently–bit my finger back as a lesson to not bite people. When I said “OW!” she said, “See? That’s how it feels to the other person. Don’t bite.” And I never did again. Way to parent, Mom!). Now tolerating jerks? I never learned not to kick an annoying guy at school… I go into Avenger mode more often than her, but hey, no one’s perfect. ;)

    Ok, finally (so this doesn’t get even longer), what I love about my mom is how fun she is. I LOVE traveling with her, because she’s the ultimate adventurer. Any side road, field, patch of woods–even driveway–we find that looks interesting, she’ll instantly encourage/persuade/force the entire car to check it out. She’s dubbed it: Adventure Taxi. In foreign countries while driving on the other side of the road…there ARE a lot more N.D.E.s (Near Death Experiences)–but we’ve always survived, and in the survival, had fun! #worthit
    I also know that my mom’s always got my back. Maybe it’s because our family unit was ‘2’ for the longest time, but one of the things I value most (right up there with courage, determination, and joy!) is standing shoulder to shoulder, back to back, with someone. She’s taught me how much loyalty is connected to love and courage, and beyond that, she’s showed me repeatedly!

    Sure we still butt heads–we’re travelling overseas soon and my post-college career search is beginning, so there are plenty of opportunities for us strong-willed women to have very different opinions (thank God for my gentle, peace-loving step-dad). :) But I know she’s always on my team, and I’ll always be on hers, rooting for each other to develop and grow, laugh and become stronger in whatever–and wherever–we go….whether in the same state or on the other side of the globe.

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    i’d give it to my friend Tina. She is a mom so loving and caring and even thow she has a lot of work she can always find time for friends and family. Now I’d like to see she can take a bit of time in a day for herself. She hasn’t took a day off in a long time so even an hour of a work out would be a world to her.

    I would share the Cassey love with my mum. She is always working so hard and it would be LOVELY to treat her to something amazing like this. I have shown her the PopFlex website and basically all of the stock and fantasising about all of the brilliant active wear, cute stationary and pretty mats -the list could go on! (Also not to mention me bragging about how good and positive you and your workouts are 😄)!!
    I cannot think how happy we would both be (I suppose I would be double happy as it makes me happy when anyone, but especially my mum is happy). Wow, So many happys! It’s great! Haha.

    Thank you Cassey for hosting this giveaway. I hope it makes you just as happy as it makes me seeing somebody so elated after they win something as AMAZING as this. It must be such a thrill!!
    Thanks again, Ruby and her Mum, Morven ❤️

  • Virginia Denia

    I’d share this amazing gift with my little sister, probably the woman I admire the most in the world. She had a lot of problems during the adolescence and even got lost in some ways. Our relationship hasn’t been always like nowadays, we’ve been very far away for each other.

    But on the last years, we are closer, we share our concerns and victories, we laugh a lot and we speak often. We both are twenty-odd, but had lived a lot. First of all, we are adopted children, so our bond is unique. If some of you know something about the adoption thing, I’m sure you’ll understand.
    I think she is just amazing. She is beautifully stunning, a warrior, modest. And besides she is a mother! It’s crazy that my little sister is now a mother but she is. Less than two years ago she gave birth a marvelous tiny lady who is just perfect. The fact that my sister finds time to work out, take care of her daughter, be a wife, study, do an intership, draw or design always astonish me. My sister is my superheroe.

    I’d love to share this with her because she loves working out. I’m not very constant with my work out but she always supports me. And since I discovered Cassey, I’m improving! So, this would be a crazy and pretty way to share Popilates with her. Big hug to everyone who read this, hope you have a strong woman in your life that inspires you as much as my sister does to me.

  • Ayla

    I thought really long about this. My mum really is a fascinating strong woman. However she has already discovered her thing to do and be fit. I feel like this would rather be a great, no fabulous gift for my twin sister. She is the one who always had to struggle with everything, while things were a cake walk for me most of the time. Almost everything was easier for me than for her, including social situations, outlook in life an the world. She has loads of insecurities and is much rather left in her comfort zone than taken out of it. Why then is she strong and inspiring you might ask. Because for one thing, she never gives up, no matter how unfair the world is to her, or seems to be, she shrugs her shoulders and just continues with whatever she needs to be doing. While I could often draw energy from being applauded for my achievements, being praised and approved of, she did and does everything just for its and her own sake. In that she is really badass, as she doesn’t give in to social pressures as tot he what she ought to be studying, liking, doing etc. but rather just does as she deems best. She doesn’t fight, she doesn’t yell, she is calm, she is composed. And quite often she makes me think that strength showes itself in very different ways.
    Aside from this, I am astonished, amazed and oftentimes inspired by her absolute dedication. And what is more, while I was always better academicwise, she is the real knowledgeable one. Stuns me, what she knows and understands of the world while I float around in my bubble and endeavour in a purely theoretical philosophical pursuit here and there.
    I would truly and honestly love to give this gift to her. To das thank you for one thing for being the quiet badass woman she is and the one keeping me on the ground. But I would also like to give this to her, because once I could actually help her with one of her struggles, in a way that enables her to help herself. Feeling happy in her own skin, is something she has never mastered to this day. She does your videos here and there and some others too but it never follows a plan and when she picks a vid, that is far too advanced for her she gets discouraged again, because she can’t do the excercises or she follows through and is than so extremely sore for days on end, that she doesn’t move at all in this time which makes it difficult for her to develop a habit of taking care of herself. Starting with PIIT 1.0 and slowly progressing further and further and actually noticing the changes in mind, body and soul might be the thing to help this calm badass person to be a little stronger in the outside world as well.
    Even if I can’t get drawn for this giveaway, maybe there could someday be another one like this, even if it’s not for two, but just to give away to someone special. I’d like that. It helps to make people think if others rather than themselves which helps to make this world a better place than it is now. :)

    My grandma. Because at 70 years old, she can do double leg lifts with perfectly straight legs – better than me!!!

  • popster_Rose

    Hi Cassey,
    Woohhh i would like to join in the contest! :D
    I would absolutely share it with my best friend! When i went through a hard period in my life, she was there for me, always, even when i called her at 3:00 in the night! My mum was really ill and fighting for her life and sometimes things just get a bit too much. My friend was always there to support me, even though she was going trough a rough time herself as well. So i would definitely give her this price <3 To thank her once more and it would be perfect since she's losing weight now as well! (And i introduced her to blogilates so it would be super duper awesome if i could give her this awesome package!!).

    As i read through the comments i discovered it's going to be a hard choice because there are so many amazing strong woman! Good luck to all popsters and i hope you have an amazing mothersday! <3 <3 <3

  • moni

    so who is the winner?

  • ashley

    ‘Though she be little she be fierce’ My daughter, 7, inspires me daily. I am not entering this contest to win. I am entering to give a shout out to the most amazing little girl. She has been bullied at school this past year, little girls are so mean. But instead of being sad or changing who she is…..she has made the choice to be happy and kind! She carries herself with dignity. As a mom I want to fix it, make it better for her, take away her pain. I told her this one night and I started crying. Her wee face looked at me and said, mommy I am happy. Those girls are mean and I cannot help that, but I don’t want to be sad, I chose happy. I nearly fell over. She gets it at 7 she gets it. Physically she is beautiful, however her real sparkle comes from her spirt, strength, and the ability to remain true to herself.
    I could go on and on, I will just say that her and I both LOVE you. We one of your videos everyday. Although, my daughter, hates the 100…..says mummy I will just do more butt work, shall I? Gives me such a tickle!!
    Have a great weekend with your family. And keep the challenges and videos coming!!!
    XOXO

    My best friend Victoria and I literally do everything together! We are doing this thing rn where we are doing 1000 crunches a day for 22 days so we can loose just 1 pound and tone our abs for the summer 😊! We talk everyday and FaceTime all the time!

  • Marina 🏹

    When God created the Earth, everything was made with great prescision and according to plan. In order to form our galaxy, solar system, and planet, Adam and Eve were introduced to the world to enjoy nature’s beauty. They had many descendents, but all of them were chosen individually from the midst of an infinite number of humans. I can’t be lucky enough to have a mother that happened to be a very special edition. Mothers are the greatest. They inspire us and motivate us to get better and be stronger. Without their support we would be nothing.

    Hi Cassey :). How are you doing? My name is Peter-Gay and I live in Jamaica. I can truly say that everything I am today, my mom helped me to be. I too, am trying to be a good daughter and so I would definitely give the Prize Pack to my mommy dearest! For as long as I can remember my mom has always been very hard working, she takes really good care of her family and she has always been in good shape. About 3 years ago my mom became ill and had to have an hysterectomy done. My mom is a nurse and so she is very use to being up and about helping others, however that meant that she had to be on bed rest for several weeks. She recovered fairly quickly, however she started to gain weight especially in her abdominal region. As soon as she was able to begin exercising again, I told her all about you and your journey and how you encourage and inspire others to workout and be in the best mental and physical shape. I have been watching and exercising to your POP Pilates videos, following you and trying your Cheap Clean Eats recipes for several years now and I have definitely become stronger and healthier. Mom started exercising to your videos and she LOVES working out with you; she especially LOVES working out to your videos for abs because that is where she wants to focus on mainly. She has seen a significant improvement and she is continuing to work out and says that she will continue to for as long as she is able to. I see that she is becoming so much stronger and healthier and I am so PROUD of her! Thank you Cassey for helping my mom. I just want you to know that you are helping so many persons in so many ways and we appreciate you so much. What better way to treat her than to surprise her with this – a Prize Pack from Cassey! She would be so happy about that. Happy Mothers’ Day to all mothers and may you enjoy the day to the fullest! I LOVE YOU MOM! ❤❤

    Oh yeah! My mom is the strongest woman in my life! I get my grit and determination from her. She taught me love. She taught me to be myself and love myself no matter what. She taught me courage and strength by living her life. She has been a single mom forever. When her health was down and people thought she couldn’t walk anymore, she refused to let that define her. Walking her to brush her teeth took more than 15 minutes. Today she lives in an apartment complex on the second floor and she takes the steps every single time she goes up and down! So yeah, if I win this it’s all hers! She deserves it and so much more. Much much more!
    She’s in superb health now and that’s all coz of her mental strength!

    Hi Cassey,

    I’d love to give the prize pack to my mom. My momma is your biggest fan. Seriously. She have been dreaming about getting your transformation pack, but we couldn’t afford it. Anyways, my mom wanted to make changes. She wanted to have a healthier life, she wanted to lose weight, but she knew it wasn’t easy. She lost motivation, she felt fat and she was self-conscious about her body. She IS still self-conscious now. She shouldn’t be like that because she is the prettiest and she has everything, she has love and a family. I don’t know what to do. She should not be ashame of herself. All I want to do now is help her and make her smile again. I don’t know why I should win this prize pack and give it to my mother because there is a million of other stories even better than mine. But I know one thing. I know, maybe, I could give some motivation to my mom by giving her this prize pack, keeping her on track by her biggest idol. She could regain her smile and I can regain mine. I miss her smile, but I love my mom. (Sorry for my grammar and english spelling, i’m French, love from Canada xox)

    I absolutely have a strong woman in my life! This goes out to Denise Mayfield my best friend! Known her since middle school and I want to use this to truly give back to her. She let me move into her home just back in March which was a huge help because I was going through a lot at the time. I was living with my ex-boyfriend and his family for almost 3 years prior to that and I was just miserable! She hated seeing me that way and I consider her strong and empowering because she is there for me when I need her and we have the most amazing friendship! She is really inspired by my healthy lifestyle and would love more than anything to have this incredible opportunity alongside me! I’ve been following Cassey pretty much since the beginning and I actually really love the PIIT series. I love the intensity as I need more cardio along with the strength training to lose the rest of my weight! I have lost about 30 lbs since November and want to keep the momentum going! I’d love to have this journey with my best friend! She will also be trying to lose all the baby weight which I think this program would suit her as well! She and I have both had a troubled past with family so we can really relate on that but we have been empowered by eachother and realize we are the TRUE meaning of family. I love her with all my heart!

    Hey Cassey! I’m Emilie, 15 years old and I’m a passionate dancer from Germany.
    (Update: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/26ff255bea076073c8afec9f9eca1e1b75037bcad3004ffe141fcdd38ed6d403.jpg Here’s a pic of what I made for my mom! <3)

    I've watched your Youtubevids since July/August 2016, because I hadn't had any training session at my dance school (because of the summer break), but I wanted to stay fit! So I did your WOs like 3-4 times a week after my streching routines.

    When school started again I was more busier than ever with school and my dance classes. So I neglected working out…

    but then around spring break, I started to do it again (that was like in the middle of March!). I dowloaded your April Calendar and could finish it successfully. I was so proud of myself, hihi – I told like all of my friends from dance about your calendar and your videos!

    So right now I'm in the middle of the May Calendar and I REALLY like the new concept of it. I have to say that although I'm a dancer and already have a good endurance, it's still hard for me to do the workout 4 times! But you always push me (and the other POPsters) to our limits!

    I'm so thankful to have this opportunity to win something big like this stuff! So I recommended your channel and she’s absolutely in love with it! (She’s turning 29 in June, so I thought that would be a great gift.)

    Just let me say one thing more:

    Thank you for your videos, Cassey! You get me to push trough my limits and believe in myself.

    I wish everyone good luck! :)

    XOXO Emmi

    (p.s.: I couldn’t say everything I wanted to say bc English isn’t my native language.<3)

  • Hi Cassey! I would share my gift with my Godmother (who is also my aunt) and a Popster herself! She is one of the most important women in my life <3 Not only she helped raising me, but she was also my wedding godmother, we are best friends and I'm her daughter's godmother as well. We laugh together, cry together and push each other to get stronger with blogilates! She is kind, sweet, funny and both like a mother and a sister to me. A mother is not only who gave birth to you, is mostly the person who raised you and made you who you are* Happy mothers day, for all women who raise anybody, wether if it is a son/daughter, but also nieces/nephews, granddaughters/sons, cousins, friends, etc!

  • I would give it to my mom who encauraged me to start doing workouts. She spend a lot of time working, but when she’s back she never complains, she has amazing energy and she’s really positive. She always supported me and helped me with my troubles. I love her so much! She’s the best and the strongest women I know!

  • Kiyah Vaught

    Hey Cassey!! I think that if I were to win this I would give it to my mom because she is a huge inspiration and a very hard worker who is always at work and never has a lot of time to workout and she and I have been trying g to lose weight together do I think that this would help us both out a lot.

    Hi Cassey :) The strongest person in my life is my mother. Both her and i have struggled with binge eating disorders for most of our lives. Ever since a very young age, she’s been abused with words. Her own parents calling her fat, boys that she liked, etc. She’s been through points in her life where she’s starved herself, forcing herself to puke, and having to make constant visits to the doctors. She has never felt beautiful. As someone who has experienced a sliver of what she has, i know how much pain comes with being told that you’re fat. I know the feeling of staring at myself in the changeroom mirror and falling to the ground crying because i let my binging go way past my own control. I can only imagine the pain my mom must feel… having to deal with this for as long as she has. About a month ago, my mom and i made a pinky promise that we would start loving ourselves. And to do that, we need to do things for ourselves that make us happy and radiant. We came to the realization that healthy, nutritious meals made us feel that way. That the rare occasion when we would excercise, we felt beautiful and invincible. That’s what made us happy, we just forgot. So since then, we have been making choices that are making us happier than we’ve ever been. I showed her your videos and we do them together everyday on our living room floor. We cook together, and we use that time to bond and laugh- something we both needed. This lifestyle change (although it hasn’t been too too long yet) is something we never want to give up. Thankyou for being such an inspiration to both me and my beautiful mother. We love you so much Cassey and all that you do. ❤ :)

  • AJ

    The strong woman in my life is my older sister, Sarah. She’s not just physically strong, although she’s fairly in shape, mostly from backpacking. I have always been the weaker one given some health issues that I’ve had for a few years, but she’s always been both emotionally supportive and physically available to drive me around or whatever I need, all with a great attitude.

  • anna.bawse

  • Ma. Diahndra Panganiban

    Hello Cassey, Im Diahndra from Philippines. I would share this with a beloved from of mine, Ate Kat. (ate is sister). She won the 4th place in her first 10k run in correigidor. She is amazing. She trained just two months for that! Did all diets and committed herself to that. I am the one who follows your blog (i keep doing your challenges, i even have a checklist! For which one on every month!). I told her about you and shes very happy that I exercise just like her. She deserves this more than I do. It would be an honor. She inspires me to be healthy in food and mind. She sees the world in a different pattern, I am glad to be a part of her life.

    The strong woman in my life is my mother. Everyone can say so, and it’d mean different things. So what does it mean to me and in my family? I’ll tell you the story…
    I was a naive girl, who managed to get a state-funded place at university in the capital of one of third-world countries. I was over the moon. I was to embark on my English studies. A high achiever in the small town I was devasted to see my fellow students were much more knowledgeable and having more opportunities than me. I was killing myself to catch up. I didn’t sleep and didn’t eat, I was too busy and stressed. At one point my jeans were about to slip from my thighs, I got so thin. My fam was far from me and when they saw me they got concerned. My mom saw my determination, and… she stated saving money for my trip to the language school in the U.K. My two siblings, and the granny with cancer were on her. My dad was trying hard, but mom had a better job, she ended up having so much pressure, but she persevered and persevered and I went to the U.K. I felt to quilty and grateful. The next year my mom managed to send me there again. Thank you, mama!

    4 years passed, with the help of my husband I sent my sister to the U.K. to help her to improved her English. She did. It’s my thank you to you, mama!

    All strong people have their weaknesses. For my mom it’s her fight with extra 5-7 kg. She punished herself by not buying new clothes as often as every woman is supposed to do. It breaks my heart. She waits until she gets more slender. I want the beautiful popflex sports clothes to show her she IS right now an attractive woman.

    Even if i don’t win, no problem, I can buy. I just wanted to put my thank you to mama in writing.
