  1. Hi Cassey!

    I need a little bit of advice. I have been working hard to lose body fat weight through working out and eating better. I have a good variety of workouts that I do, and stick to a pretty consistent schedule (5 days a week). Living in a college dorm though, it is really hard to eat healthy. I don’t have any money, so I am left with dining hall food (uck). Most of the food is undercooked, deep fried, or full of sugars and salt. There is a sandwich bar, but they only serve white bread. The salad bar only has spinach that I can eat, and the cucumbers, tomatoes, pineapple and melons they serve, I am all allergic to. It makes it very difficult for me to eat well, but even when I do, I end up giving into cravings after about a week. It makes me feel terrible, so I workout even more, and I have reached the point where I am physically in pain all of the time from working out so hard, so often.

    So that brings me to two things. First of all, what are some thing that a person can do to prevent or ignore cravings? It is very hard for me, and, so far, nothing I have read online helps. Secondly, do you have any advice on body positivity? I used to be very fit and the freshman 15 got to me very quickly, and soon became the freshman 25. I am not used to have a body I do not like, and I do not know how to be positive about.

    Any feedback would be absolutely lovely.

    Best regards!

  2. Hey Cassey! I just finished your beginners workout calendar a couple days ago and I feel great! I signed up for your newsletter and everything but I was wondering how you get the password to access monthly calendars??? I really want to continue using them and I was wondering if you or anyone who knows could tell me how. Thanks (:

  3. hi cassey :) i really like your workouts< and your really inspiring and extremely motivating! ;) but i wanted to ask, whilst doing one of your 30day challenges do i need to incorporate gym workouts like the tredmill?is it really necessary or should i just stick to your programs completely?
    thanks :) Sonia<3

  4. Hi Cassey! I was wonder if you could share your tips and tricks to keeping your workout clothes clean, smelling GOOD, and how to take care of it for a very long time. Workout clothes are very expensive and it is very upsetting when one good shorts, pants, top, or bra rips or have a terrible smell to it!

    It would be very helpful :D

  5. Hi Cassey!
    I love your videos, but I find that I really struggle with my hip because it’s really tight. Do you have any suggestions as to what kind of streches that will help me to loosen it up? My dance teacher keeps telling me that I have a really bad second position, but I just can’t seem to get it any better!

    Thank you so much for being an inspiration for such a great community!!

  6. Hi I am trying to get on pointe but I know that I need to work on my core. I also wobble a lot when I am balancing. Any suggestions?

  7. Hello Cassey! Today i’ve join a marathon event in my town for this april and today i’ve started to jog a little and i felt my body heavy and i got tired easily. Could give me an advice to increase my stamina, please? I would be very grateful for your help.

    Hi! I was wonder if you’re going to restock your detox water bottles! I really like the “Dream Believe Achieve” bottle but it’s sold out! If you can answer back, that would be great! I’m looking forward to having my own blogilates detox bottle soon! <3

  10. Hi Cassey!
    This is just a suggestion, but if you ever find the time to do so, could you please make a log in for this website? I just think that it would be really great and convenient if everyone could make there own account so that we could all connect online and see the different work out plans that everyone’s doing and compare.

  11. Dear Cassey,
    More song challenges please! I love doing the high intensity workouts for a shorter amount of time, i feel like it’s easier to push myself to the end if i just keep telling myself “the song is almost over”

  12. Dear Cassey,

    I love you Daily Workouts! I am so pumped for March to be working my body and feeling good. However when I’m working out its hard not to sweat. This is fine when I am showering before class, but my skin can’t take showering everyday even though I’m working out everyday. Do you have any tips for freshening up after a workout so I’m not going to school worried? Thank you :)

    -Sarah

  13. Hello Blogilates friends, I have a question about the 30-day challenges: do we do the reps more than once per day or only 1 time with the specified number of reps? Also, is it really effective and correct to do the same exercise every day: I knew that you should give your muscles a break and not work the same muscle two days in a row or it won’t be as effective…is that the case?

  14. Sorry, Cassey not Cassie.

  15. I love the fit journal and i tried to order one mid January but they are all sold out! Cassie you should totally get more and keep them in stock! They are great!!!!!

  16. Hey Cassey :) I had a question about the 30 days butt challenge. I would like to know how many reps do we do for each day, for example on the first day we do 5 squats but do we repeat it 3 times or we just do it 5 times ? If you could write be back it would be awesome :)

  17. Yeah, I signed up for the newsletter but I haven’t got the password yet :'(

  18. Shana Jones says:

    Hello Cassey,

    I signed up for the newsletter and still haven’t received the e-mail with the password. Is there an alternate method or should I just try again?

    Thank you,

    Shana

  19. Just to let you know, I did sign up for the newsletter.

  20. Hey! I was just wounding where I could find the password for the monthly workouts. I’m really excited to get started!!

  21. Hi, I am trying to download and print the 90 day meal plan and I am having a hard time, may you please update its format so its a little easier to print. Thank you

  22. Hey Cassey!
    I’m 20 years old, 90 pounds so I’m pretty skinny all around, but I get really uneasy about my hips, which have an indent in them. My hips are already narrow which makes me feel more uneasy because I feel like it makes the indents in my hips stand out more. I was wondering if you have any tips on how to make hip indents less noticeable. Thanks!

  23. Hi there !
    I’m a french fan and I’m 18.
    I’m quite small and my curves are a little round, especially my hips, butt and thighs, as a lot of young women I guess. I feel a bit uneasy with my body and I work a lot about it.
    I practice some martial arts ( Karate ) and I try to have some workout routine at home.
    So I heard about blogilates and watched some videos on youtube, worked and did my best to follow the rythm. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to keep the routine at first try.
    Fortunately, I eat ealthy or at least try to. I drink a lot of water.
    The fact is I have difficulties to shape my body so that my butt and thighs would seem less bigger. I really don’t like my lower body the way it is right now. I just would like to have a nicer shape, something more thin and nice to look at.
    Do you have any tips ? Any particular exercise that would help me lose butt fat ?
    I guess my problem is that I don’t know how to target the exercise.

  24. Hi Cassey!

    Being a college student, I was wondering if there are any exercises like ab exercises we can do while sitting in lecture. Sometimes I’m too tired to work out after a full day of lectures, so it’d be awesome if I could work out in class in a subtle way! Thanks!

  25. Tiffany O says:

    Hey just wanted to give you a suggestion since you are a huge Taylor Swift fan. Do you think you can do a full body workout to her 1989 album?

  26. whats the best way to get rid of side fat rolls, like what exercise would you best suggest??

  27. Hi Cassey! I’ve been doing your workouts since I started my fitness journey two years ago and I love it – especially since I combine your videos and challenges with my regular routines and other exercises like yoga. Anyway, recently I found out I have a meniscal tear in my left knee and have since been having a hard time doing some of your workouts. I was wondering if there was a routine I could do for lower body that doesn’t aggravate my knee pain? Thanks a lot in advanced. :)

  28. Brea Nichole says:

    Hey Cassey! I am a junior in high school trying o change my sluggish fat food life style. I have two jobs and involved in school activities. School food does not give us the foods we need, and i tend to eat out more, like salads and stuff to get the energy i need. I’ve been running/walking 3-4 miles at night when i have energy to spare….but i am becoming more tied. My goal is to be fit by prom which is May 2nd. i am 180 Ibs. and want to be 140ish……HELP??!!!! PLEASE!

  29. Nathalie Standing Cloud says:

    CASSEY HELP!!! Everyone is afraid of the freshman 15 when they start college. Freshman 50 is even scarier, and as a Sophomore it’s already happened to me. My question is HOW CAN YOU EAT CLEAN IN COLLEGE?! Some of us students are on scholarships and don’t have enough free time to get a job in order to buy healthy foods ourselves. So then we are forced to rely on the meal plans at our university. And lets face it, in the college cafes there are very slim pickings for healthy food among the easy hamburgers and pizza. What can we do? Drinking water is half the battle but food is energy and healthy food is medicine! Could you please give us some advice on how to eat clean on a meal plan in college. Thank you so much. -Nathalie

  30. Hey Cassey,

    I had a question about muscle. I noticed that when I do intense leg workouts (3-4 of your thigh workout videos) two days in a row, my legs tend to look thicker and more muscular as opposed to when I do it every other day (along with a healthy diet) my legs tend to look and feel thinner and lighter the next day. Am I going crazy or is this totally normal? Also, since I’ve been doing your videos for a long time, I’ve increased the number of reps that I do each exercise…does that have anything to do with my legs looking more thick and muscular the day after doing two intense leg days?

    Thank you so much!
    I love your videos and blog, keep up the great work!

  31. Leidys Palacios says:

    Cassey, I really want to know more about you, and get more inspired to hit the day :)

    So I want to know your snapchat username :/

    Please answer, because I know I’m not the only one who wants to know it :D

    <3 xoxo

  32. Hey Cassey!
    I just wanted to know your thoughts on an Australian YouTuber, Freelee the Banana Girl. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of her, (or her boyfriend Harley, aka Durianrider), but basically she preaches to aim for a diet consisting of a “a baseline of 2000 calories but in order to really thrive 2500″ (direct quote from her website), aiming for this calorie intake to come from 90% carbs, 5% fats and 5% protein. Personally, from watching her videos and reading accounts from other individuals who have interacted with her or her boyfriend over the internet or taken up her dietary advice, I hold some pretty negative views towards the pair.
    She’s also done a video in response to one of your ‘What I Eat in a Day’ videos, (I think that was it), and was curious on your thoughts on that too.
    I really trust your opinion and feel that you’re super well informed, well researched and just a infectiously kind and beautiful person, and would really value and love to hear any of your thoughts relating to Freelee.
    Thanks for having a read!
    -Julia :)
    P.S.; Also, obviously a huge thanks for inspiring me to be happy! Love ya!

  33. Cassey has a video on her YouTube page about periods! Definitely check it out, it’s very helpful :)

  34. Dear Cassy,

    First, i really really want to say thank you sooooo much Cassy! I started follow your youtube video since last year November. At the beginning, i was just watching the videos just tried to kill the timest, and also kepted say to myself : i’ll start next week. and then i started follow your Instagram, and i got really inspired from you, and finally i started work out at the first day of this year, and also signed up gym ! Never in my life hit the gym, but i will never forget the feeling that i had that first day i did work out .. feels amazing ! But here comes a question, i will having my period verysoon likly in 3 days, is it okay to work out during period or shoud i stop ? It will be really really great that hear from you. thank you !

    P.S : #30days AbsChallenge is really working !

  35. Hi Cassey.

    I’ve never worked out in my life. And I’m about to give it a try with your beginners 2.0. I hope that I am able to complete it and if I do, I just want to plan ahead. What video or calendar would you recommend next?

    Thank you for your videos and encouragment!

  36. Anne Mette says:

    Hey Cassey! I’ve been doing the ab-challenge this month and then I thought about this: how about a booty-challenge for next month? I think that would be SO awesome!

    You’re amazing and I love your videos!
    XOXO Anne Mette ;-*

  37. Hi Casey, I might be quite young to be doing your workouts but are you able to make aN effective workout for someone based on their physical appearance? I can’t seem to find the one that is right for me and my body type that won’t be too strenuous since I get winded easily. My only Choice of exercise was my conditioning for High school marching band but I just finished it for my freshman year but I want to maintain a straight workout routine even after the season is over. Thank you

  38. Hi Cassey,

    You have such a positive energy and you are an inspiration! I think that it would be great if you did Dancing with the Stars! I know that this past season Bethany Mota (who is a youtube star) was on it and I think it would be amazing if you did it! Would you considered it?

    let me know,
    Lily :)

  39. Hi Cassey,
    First thing: thank you for the inspiration, the positive thoughts and energy you give – it really really helps! You played a gigantic role in my decision of studying to become a Pilates instructor (and hopefully, later a Pop Pilates instructor).
    Couple of questions: any chance to get Pop Pilates logged into MyFitnessPal? I was used to use it, than I quitted because the logging- thing was getting a bit too obsessive, but I m now considering going back to it because I apparently can’t lose the weight I aimed to, despite doing your workouts every day + some classes at the gym and eating clean (and being happy).
    I thought MFP might help, but logging your workouts as Pilates is a little reductive, as Pilates can also be very very soft.
    What do you think?
    Also, a funny one: everybody always mention inner thights -that is cool and important, i am all about it. But my “inner knees” really looks ugly- fatty and stocky and just miles away from being toned!I m working on my legs and see some improvements but still, that specific part (and my saddle bag..sob) seems not be very receptive to all of my efforts!!
    Do you have any advice?

    If you find the time to get back to me, thank you!
    If not, thank you anyway :) i hope you ll have a session here in London sooner or later.
    Xx

  40. Katie Anne says:

    Cassey,
    You probably won’t have time to read or respond to this but..
    I want to start your 90 meal plan from a couple years ago, and I understand that eating smaller meals throughout the day is going to be much better for my body, but my schedule is so busy that it doesn’t really allow for meals every 2-3 hours.
    As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, I spend a great deal of my time out preaching. We usually take a short break mid-morning, and have lunch around noon or one, but then I tend to go straight from my ministry to work and I can’t eat during work unless I’m on my break. When I work a long shift, I only have one chance to eat anything and by the time I get home, it’s late and I don’t like eating after 7pm.
    How can I combat this challenge without resorting to eating fewer meals or larger portions?
    Maybe a fellow POPster can help me out? Thanks so much.

  41. Hey Cassey, sometimes I don’t have internet access so when I do I download videos. I just recently downloaded your first beginners calendar. One of the videos won’t let me download because it says “This video may be inappropriate for some users”. I thought this was odd b/c there’s nothing inappropriate about your videos. The video was the Amazing upper back and legs stretches. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veAmTwJsaV0

  42. Carlie v Wyk says:

  47. Thanks! I wasn’t Sure if there was a link for each week/day like I noticed there was on the beginner calendar. Youtube it is ;)

  48. On youtube. Search for the name of the workout on youtube and you’ll find it! :)

  49. telizeh271198 says:

  52. Hey!
    So I am a new blogilates fitness fan, but I am having issues with the January 2015 Calendar. I have signed up several times and received the confirmation emails, however I have yet to receive any passwords so I am unable to access the Calendar. Please let me know as soon as you can what the issue is because I am very very eager to start. Thanks!!

  53. Hi Cassey,
    For those of us that are just starting out and want a way to measure progress, do you have a fitness test suggestion? I keep finding things like see how many situps/pushups/burpees you can do in 60 seconds, do you have any other suggestions? I would like something I could record in my new blogilates 2015 planner and track my progress.
    Thanks!
    xoxo
    Kristy

  54. Hi, i just downloaded your Blogilates app and i paid for the subscription to get your beginners first month plan. But im wondering if im goimg to be charged every month for that calender, and if not is the new plan i get for the next month still considered beginners?

  55. Okay I have a serious problem.. In summer I started running and worked out from day to day.. It was fun and I did feel better, however now this is really not possible for me.
    I have osteoarthritis, my knee hurts like sh** due to the cold weather here in Germany. I can’t even walk normally, how am I supposed to run or do any other kind of sports? I can’t hold my leg straight up in the air because even that hurts. I am frustrated.
    I really do wanna lose weight, but since my metabolism for some reason is SUPER slow, I need to do sports to change something. Has any of you guys experienced the same like me and what did you do or what can I do to make things better?

    BTW, in 2012 I ripped my cruciate ligament, menisci and both outer bands in my right knee (yes, I know, I’m clumsy :D). Because I didn’t go straight to a doctor I got osteoarthritis and this is basically my story..

  56. Carlie v Wyk says:

    What do you do for fun , except that you do poppilaties what else?

  57. HI!

    Do you have any tips for a hurting tail bone? I love the floor work but often times my tail bone is hurting by the end of the workout! :( Any suggestions?

    <3
    Kim

  58. Hi Cassey, I’m trying to lose weight, but with school and classes it’s been really hard. Do you have any tips? Thx :-)

  59. Hey cassey! Is it good to work out with an empty stomach every morning? Before breakfast?

  60. Hi Cassey! I am so glad that my co-worker told me about your website because it helps me a lot to do a workout that is actually fun because of your video(your peptalk, music et al). I admit that I havent actually done a full month’s workout, only following certain videos that I like. But for 2015, I am all for doing the ab challenge and starting the beginners 2.0 workout. I also got the new 2015 journal the other day and my workout outfit a couple of weeks ago so I am ready to tackle this new year in style. Best of luck to you on this new year coming and thank you for providing us with a good workout

  61. Hi Cassey! First off I just want to say THANK YOU for everything you do :) Also I just got the 2015 fit calendar and I cannot wait to start using it! It is GORGEOUS. I actually wondered if you (or anyone reading this) had any advice for me. I am sixteen and I really want to be fit and healthy. I always feel GREAT once I’m done exercising. But I have SO MUCH trouble during a workout. I feel like I am too weak and I can’t keep going – this is especially when I do abs or arm work. I get really really discouraged and upset and feel like I’m not getting stronger… I’ve been doing your videos off and on for a year and a half but it’s hard to stay consistent because of school and everything. Does anyone any tips for how to stay on track during the school year and for getting through a hard workout?? I’d love to hear back :)

  63. Hi Cassey!
    Should I do cardio every day as well as the calendar workouts or is it not necessary? If anyone could let me know that’d be great.

  64. Hi, Casey and everyone!

    Can ANYONE at all PLEASE tell me what exercise Marilyn is doing in the right picture/page?

    http://www.trashydiva.com/wpsite/wp-content/uploads/Marilyn-Monroe-shape-2.jpg

    I’ve also seen it here:

    http://marieclaire.media.ipcdigital.co.uk/11116/00007dc7d/c723_orh1000w646/BED-EXERCISE-L.jpg

    and in a ton of Japanese media!

    What is this exercise? I really want to know how to do it correctly!

  65. Hi Cassey!
    Let me start out by saying you are truly inspirational! Your workout videos always put me in a great mood, even though it’s challenging but your enthusiasm keeps me going! This might be completely random, but I was wondering what your day to day schedule is like? i know you must be super busy with all that you’re involved in, but I was curious. Do you take time out of your day to workout for yourself when you’re not doing videos? How do you find the time to cook healthily when you have so many projects going on? As a college student I am always running from place to place so I was wondering how you make time to keep up with your lifestyle.
    Thanks!
    Krystin

  66. Hi,
    I was wondering if you could recommend any ab exercises or variations for those with a bad back? I have some back problems and I am not able to do all of the workouts :(
    Thanks in advance !

  67. Cassey should totally create a design for something like this!

  68. Hi Alicia. My case is similar to yours. I’ve erbs palsy on my right arm which hinders the amount of arms exercises (and even push-ups, planks, etc.) that I can do. I’ve asked several fitness instructors as to how I can exercise with this condition. ALL OF THEM said that I do whatever is comfortable for me, but I still have to keep trying, but to a suitable limit.

    So, do the exercises, but don’t force yourself too hard till you hurt yourself. Just do it enough that it’s challenging.

  69. Where did the Blogilates Social Network go? I loved it! Will it be back?

  70. Thank you Cassie for making this beginner calendar. I’ still on the first week and already I can feel more flexibility and energy. You’re amazing, you make it fun and I love your personality.

    hey, so I am 161.5 lbs right now and would love to get to 120 before February of 2015 I have 3 months to accomplish this goal, how and what is the best way to do it. I haven’t eaten any carbs on a regular basis and I have also been doing about 100 push ups and curl ups a night. i need to get some cardio in. What is the best way to lose about 41 pounds in 3 months. PLEASE HELP ME AND GIVE ME SOME SUGGEGESTIONS AND ANSWERS , IT WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED. SORRY FOR THE CAPS LOCK LOL MORE ATTENTION!:)

  72. Hello guys!

    I have following blogilates more or less for about 3 months now. I have not seen any like major results due to the fact that I have not been really following the meal plan strictly, as I should have. It is just that I am not places every 2-3 hours where I can grab food. The foods are not in school, and I do not have the things she lists most of the time. I am soon to be 17. So it is really hard for me to follow any of it at all. I have tried for a couple of days, and I just got headaches, because I did not eat reguarly because of I was always in mid lessons and such. I’m not allowed to eat in class. Also, I have been sick for over a week now. I am just now somewhat back to my normal self again. And I am trying to exercise again, even though it is really hard. Please, can somebody help me? I want to be those girls who have a before and after picture, where people just think WOW! I am doing this all by myself, and it is really hard to do things everyday since I have work and school. There can be a lot of stress in my life. Can somebody hep?

  73. Keyanna Sutton says:

    Hey Cassie

    I am 17 years old and I just want to know how many sit ups and crunches should I do to get abs and how long does it take to get abs?

  74. Hey Cassey, hey girls,
    I have a problem. I’m 17 and because of a problem in my left arm I’m not allowed to strain my arm. So I don’t know what workout is the best for me, because most of the plans you can find online and here have a huge part on arms and that really hurts.
    I would be very thankful if there is somebody out there who could help me.
    Thanks in regards
    Alicia

  75. Hello sunshine ,
    cassy you r an amazing person ,I’m always too tired to workout ,but do you know what’s motivate me ?
    your smile , your amazing spirit , love your chat with us while working out , please keep it up and wish you all the best .
    by the way , I don’t need a working out gear ,but I will order some of your designs because I love you :)

  76. Hi Leanne,

    I am Katie and I know how you feel. It’s like you don’t have the motivation to workout anymore. TOTALLY THERE AS WELL.

    First thing is first, I am a chiropractic assistant and one thing I have learned from working for Chiropractors is that there is no such thing as a slipped disc. You might have a herniated disc (The disc is being squished by the two vertibrae), and that might be causing a lot of problems. I would actually recommend a chiropractor. Find one that can help your extremities (knees, fingers, ankles, feet, elbows, etc.) and also find one that will take an x-ray of your spine :)

    For the working out part……I think it’s important to find balance. Instead of working out/training for 3 hours, only do 30 minutes to an hour, 4-5 times a week for starters :) Make sure to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water every day, get 7-9 hours of sleep, and eat clean :)

  77. Hi Ladies! I need a kick up the butt!I’m 43 years old and I used to be pretty fit and strong. I used to be a Chinese Lion Dancer and advanced kung fu student plus I did weight training. ANyway I was diagnosed with 2 slipped discs and told to not exercise and then after that I was scared to do anything for the fear of making it worse.So this was afew years ago and I’m better but I can’t run and my hips and knees are feeling the affect from being the heaviest I’ve been for a long time more or less 80 kilos.

    The thing is I have become the person I used to berate for being overweight,eating bad food and being depressed.I have lost weight recently thanks to pop pilates and zumba but dueto a stressful l.ife the last few years as soon as I get ill, I’m ill for about 3 weeks and then I can’t find the motivation to start again and this is not like the old me.I trained every Sunday for 3 hours for 2 years in advanced Kung Fu plus Lion Dancing on top. I don’t know if it’s my stressful job Teaching and how stressed I am affecting me or If I have used up my quota of fitness for life! lol I feel lost I really do and I hate not having the willpower to stop eating crap which I know is not doing me any good.Am I pushing myself too hard everytime I get ill i.e I get ill,eat crap and then go OTT when I start again? Any ideas are welcome as I want to change from the inside out and thank you for any advice will be appreciated.

  78. Hey everyone, I NEED URGENT HELP!!
    Im 16, fit, and athletic BUT I still have a small pooch with a line underneath it. Im skinny too so it confuses me as to why i still have it. I have been doing Cassey’s videos every single day since the middle of August, while running and working out because of Lacrosse. If anyone has any tips on how to get rid of that pooch line, PLEASE TELL ME!! I’ll take anything i can get but only natural ways :)!
    Thanks!!

  79. Hi Hailey! I have felt your pain in the past, until my husband got a better job and I was able to quit mine, I was in the same boat. I learned that extensive planning in those situations is everything. I have a Franklin daily planner and I schedule everything in my life in it. It got so intense at one point that I was Scheduling when to get up and shower, when to eat, and when to workout. Even if you have to be that scheduled, at least you can still fit it in. Also try adding in some B12, Vitamin C or iron for energy. I got the supplement called FerroFood that has all three and wow it made a difference in my energy, even when I was pooped! Hope that helps a little bit!

  80. Hey Ladies I need help!!!! I work every single day between my two jobs. I have noticed my health going down hill. my one job we are so short of people I wont get a day off for a long while. I have a hard time finding the strength and time to workout. if I do have time I am so exhausted that I don’t want to do anything. I also don’t want to wake up very early and do my workout at 6 am because I desperately need my sleep. what can I do to get back in the game and start feeling good about myself and start looking good?

  81. Hey Cassey, can you make a calender were it is what you are going to eat every day! that would helped me much! Love you! you are helping me so much! :)

  82. Hey Cassey I was on Pinterest and saw a website for cheap Nike shoes!! I thought of you when I was checking the site out and thought you would like it. http://www.2014frees.com Happy shopping:)
    Have a great day,
    Holly

  83. Hi Cassey,

    Firstly, I have to say that I love your posts. I used to do many of your workouts and they are very great, especially for a beginning like myself.

    I would really love, though, for you to shed a little more light for those of us dealing with personal body image issues. Even though you don’t mean to, a lot of your videos focus on the idea of trimming down and sculpting your body, and although that is very awesome, I’d really love for people out there to learn a thing or two about what it might be like for those of us with disordered eating issues. As a recovering anorexic-turned-bulimic/compulsive eater, I know that the tendency for those with eating disorders is to go to your website. And even if that’s not your target audience, a lot of young girls/boys who are struggling with these issues use your blog as a means to achieve what they perceive to be the perfect weight/body shape. Because of that, I think that if you happen to write something to address these ideas, it’ll get through to so many people.

    I hope you consider it!

  84. Hi Cassie-

    Can you PLEASE make a bra bulge toning moves video? It is a very problematic area that I have been having trouble toning despite doing regular cardio, pilates and dieting.

  85. Hi Cassey,
    Just a note to say I have been teaching your videos as a class for around 4 years now at the university of North Dakota in grand forks nd. Something special about my situation is that I am actually physically disabled. I have right hemi parisis, basically symptoms of a stroke without the stroke. Because of my physical challenges, I teach by video. …I have studied Pilates and your videos of pop Pilates and I have come up with ladder system of skills, between beginners and intermediates and advanced, which you so kindly demonstrate for the class! It has been so successful. I wish I had a beginning and after photo for you from me! I don’t have much but wondering if you would ever consider coming to my class to teach one day! We would love to have you!

  86. Hi Casey ! I have been doing the beginner workout. It’s my second week which I have completed. I just have one problem I have notice that I have cellulite at my bottom and my thigh and it doesn’t look pretty at all. Is there any treatment or exercise for that. I’ll be waiting for your reply. Thank you!!!!!!!!!

  87. Hey Cassey!
    I need an workout that will help my butt!!! i need to define and lift my Gluteal Fold. I started eating better and doing yoga and working out to your videos (which are AMAZING) and i lost it! Please help me get it back!!! Cant wait to hear which video will be best for my butt!
    Thanks Girlie :)

    Hey cassy
    I would like to take ur advice about working out specially that I am a new mum….I delivered my baby about 1 month ago.. should I workout like before I got pregnant?
    Please give some advices that will help me to lose the baby weight
    Thank you in advance…

  89. Hello Cassie,

    I know you read this all the time, but I love you and your workouts! A-MA-ZING!
    I have a really bad case of lordosis, and so I can’t do some exercises. I was wondering if you could do a Pilates Ball workout for us who can’t do all tipes of movements. This can really help to improve core without hurting.

    Thanks!

  90. Hello Casey,
    I was wondering if you could recommend which videos would be best for prenatal workouts. Seeing as you have sooo many women following you and watching your videos. I think it would be a really great to have that option in the mix. It is important for pregnant women to continue to be fit and healthy while pregnant.
    Thank you
    !

  91. Can you show your BB pin?

  92. Hi I was wondering if you deliver to the Channel Islands as I really would like the DVD

    Thanks

  93. Hi Cassey

    I noticed before on your FAQ page you talked about the myfitnesspal app and what we could put your videos under in the exercise section. It’s not showing up when I click on it. Is anyone else having this problem or is it just me? If anyone remembers what they were thatd be great

    Thanks

  94. Hi Corinne! The monthly calenders incorporate cardio and a lot of Cassey’s pilates moves increase your heart rate so do act as cardio. For me, when I was first starting out the calenders were enough to help me lose some weight even when that wasn’t my goal. Since then I’ve started incorporating at least two days at the gym where I train with heavy weights and do intervals on the treadmill to ensure I don’t plateau but that’s a good year after I started pilates. In the beginning I personally found the calenders had enough cardio moves to aid weight loss. Building muscle also helps you burn calories throughout the day so I think the calenders are much better for sustainable weight loss than a simple cardio routine.

  95. Sorry wrong post lol

  96. You should post a picture of one of your drawings of your clothing designs!!

  97. Hello! I was wondering if Casey or even anyone anyone can help me out, I’m sure this questions been answered before but I can’t find anything about it. I want to lose weight and thin out; if I do the monthly calendars just like they are will that work for what I want? Or do I have to add cardio with that?

  98. Hi Cassey,
    I just started with POP Pilates two weeks ago and I can already see a difference. I don’t want to loose weight, I just want to get lean and toned and your workout plan really helps!
    Since about 6 months I’ve been trying to get lean and toned but it didn’t really work, even tough I always ate completely clean and worked out 5 times a week.
    Now with your workouts I see so much more progress than in the last 6 months! You’re such an inspiring person and I’m so thankfull to have someone who helps me with my own fitness journey.
    Thank you very much, Cassey!

  99. Vasudha says:

    Good idea.. I will love to do workout on Bollywood songs

  100. Marissa Nevel says:

    Hey Cassey, hope you are doing wonderful.
    I just wanted to ask if you would consider going back to multiple body parts targeted per day for the August 2014 workout calendar. As you know, sometimes we get busy and might miss an extra day here and there. I have found it much easier to stay in shape doing the workout calendars if multiple body parts are targeted throughout the week, such as your June calendar. That way, for example, If I miss the arms day, I’m not totally missing out on working my arms for the week if I know that it’s arms and abs twice a week instead of one arms day and one abs day.
    Anyways, your calendars are always awesome i’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with next!
    Thank you so much for all you do.
    xoxo,
    Marissa

  101. Hi Cassey! You are awesome and I love your workouts! I just wonder about crossfit workout video, what are you think? ;) It would be great do this workout with you!

    Greetings from Poland <3 !

  102. Serrie V says:

    Hey Cassey,

    Hope you are doing well! I was wondering can you do a Bollywood music workout? Bollywood music is so energetic, lively, and AMAZING to work out to. [maybe it could be called Bollywood booty ;), Bollywood beauty, Bollywood total body workout?] I suggest songs from Yeh Jawaani Heh Diwaani, Student of the Year, or Main Tera Hero. It would be awesome if you could consider!

    Thanks!

  103. Hello Cassey! I’m Laura, and I might be your youngest POPster. I’m 8 years old. Could you come to Cleveland, OH? I would really like to meet you and take a live class!!! If you come to Cleveland, could you do a healthy cooking show or a healthy snack tasting and a class? I want some healthy & yummy snack/meal ideas. Thank you Cassey!
    Love,
    Laura

  105. hey cassey , i like your videos :) really u Change me, Thank you.

  106. Hi, I am new to blogilates. I am doing a lot of the beginners workouts on here, I am trying the july calendar also :) I had a question for cassey (love the name! *giggle*) I am still trying to get my stomach under control from my pregnancy a few years back and was wondering if there are any videos you have for the post partum bellies/ab muscle separation?

  107. Mary H. says:

    Hey Cassey, I was looking at your transformation stories and thinking today that you have another that you’ve shared and you just don’t mayb realise it….Yours!

    When I first started blogilates this was one of the first videos I saw:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7I-c-yw5ZrQ&feature=kp

    and now this is you girl:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1lwcu1_LUs

    In between there was the bikini competition you, which was incredible but the way you look now is completely healthy, inspirational and beautiful <3

    I just wanted to tell you your own journey has been an inspiration to me me as I work towards my own goals. Thank you =)

  108. Hey Cassey! I love your song challenges!! I am ordering my fit journal today! Sooo excited for the 12 week challenge!! However, I don’t follow the calendar. If i do 1 hour of song challenges such as “Drive by Inner Thighs” and “Call Me Maybe Squats” instead everyday and follow the diet, will i still see results? Has anyone done that and seen results so far? :)

  109. thank U cassy!

  110. Shoua Lee says:

    Hi Cassey!

    I really enjoy your workout videos, boy they are a challenge, especially burpees! But I’ve been having this question on my mind a lot. Do you think that body wraps and tea toxing are good ways to loose weight and inches? Have you ever tried it? Please let me know, I’m very curious.

  111. Hey, Cassey.

    I just wanted to let you know that your website has a recurring pop-up. The title in the tab is ‘Christina’s Ultimate Dieting Secret Revealed.’ The URL is celebritybeautymag.com.

  112. Hey Super Cassey! I love your videos they really put a hurting on me that i love! though i am having a slight issue. i follow your workouts but i have not followed your meal plans, i eat clean and have realized that i have a problem getting over 1200 calories (eating 6 times a day) and noticed i am gaining weight. i am a bit lost on what is going on with this. I am 28 yrs old and 5″4, my head is telling me to eat less but i know that is the wrong way to go. Do you have any suggestions? – Or – Is it essential to consume more on the work out days? and this could be the root of my issue?

    either way! keep up with the great work and i hope you do more full 10 minute videos!

    Sincerely,
    Tabi

  113. Marissa says:

    Same here!

  114. Marissa says:

    Same here! I’m in college and during school breaks I follow the calendar but during the school year can only workout 2-3 hours a week at best. I’m having trouble transitioning back into not exercising as much and i’m not sure what exercises to do to maximize that time (HIIT vs. strength vs. straight cardio?)

  115. valerie says:

    I agree the workout on the calendar is way too long…I have a young baby at home and I can barely get 30 minutes to workout….

  116. Marissa Nevel says:

    Hi Cassey,
    I know you are super busy and probably get a ton of mail every day but I just want to let you know that you are AMAZING! You have made such a positive influence in my life on my road to health and happiness. I struggled with ED tendencies and poor body image for years. After incorporating clean eating into my life and doing your videos regularly, I went from fear of gaining weight and fear of food, to a love of my body and what it can do, a love of cooking and confidence that is priceless. For the first time in my life, I looked in the mirror and loved and accepted what I saw, and felt it wasn’t some temporary fluke or just from skipping a meal. I have had amazing results and the best part is it’s maintainable! I don’t feel like I’m going to wake up one day and lose the progress I’ve made if i’m not perfect. That is huge for me. I can’t thank you enough for everything you do. You have made working out for me fun, instead of a chore.
    I’m so happy to see all the publicity and success that you’ve gotten lately and that you have stayed authentic and yourself.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    Much love,
    Marissa

  117. I love this idea!!

  118. Lilah Salazar says:

    Hi Cassey i just wanted to thank you for the work you do, you are absolutely AMAZING!! i love your videos, all of them! Today was my first day with your DVD, i had… such a hard time with those exercises,i would stop and lay there and i could just hear you motivating me and it worked, i got through the whole hour!! so i’ve gotta say….i hurt so much, it hurts to sit, to bend over, it hurts to twist when i look at something behind me,my sides are killing me! I hurt so GOOOD!!!!! I couldn’t stop thinking about how YOU must have been sore! But, you powered through it and finished that DVD, you are truly an Inspiration! Again THANK YOU!!!Love you Lots!!! ~Lilah

  119. Christina says:

    Hey Blogilates!
    I love your work, and everything that you do, but I am having a problem. I can never stay on track with my diet. I will follow my workouts, but then I always overeat, or get off of my plan.
    Can do you suggest?

  120. Hi Cassey,
    First i want to say that such an inspiration for me, thanks you so mutch for that. I’ve been using blogilates for 3 months now, and i love it. So i dissided to buy the calender. But now it’s not working and i did pay. But it still says that i need to pay to use the calendar. But i already did. I hope you can help me with this.

    Sanne

  121. P.S. Forgot to ask in my previous comment…to follow your workout calendar(s) do I need to buy your DVD’s or can I find all the workouts on YouTube?

  122. Cassey,

    I have been doing your workouts on YouTube for a while and just subscribed to your channel and to the Blogilates newsletter. I love how positive you are and I always feel like you give me the energy and determination to power through the tougher parts of the workout. I had a baby 18 months ago and never did follow through with my plan to get back into shape but I decided this summer I intend to be a MILF ….so to speak lol. I have a couple major trouble spots though…will starting with the beginner calendar help tone up that fat I have above my knees? Or should I do something else? Also, where clean eating is concerned…I’m a HUGE coffee fan…what do you think? Do I need to give it up?

    Thanks for any feedback,
    Amber

  123. Saffron Hebouche says:

    Cassey your such an inspiration and you so beautiful! You’ve done so much for me and my body and I no longer feel so insecure I will never be able to thank you enough,i wish with all my heart that we can someday meet and do an extreme training session together,i’ve tried to order some of your stock but the request never seems to go through maybe its because I need to convert the money or something but its really bugging me that I cant order such amazing gear! You inspired me to get of my lazy bum and turn it into a toned and sexy booty <3 You've changed me for the better and i now feel so much more comfortable in my own skin,I love you cassey x

  124. Hi Cassey!
    As the weather’s getting nicer outside, I realize that I need to lose some weight and fortunately I found your amazing website. I just wanted to know what you would recommend. I’m in high school and don’t have much time on my hands to exercise and it’s also difficult to eat clean :(
    Please give me some advice!!
    Thank you :)

  125. I suggest her beginner’s bubble butt video! Do it like 2-3 times a day, 5 days a week <3

  126. Me too! My schedule for the next 4-5 weeks will be 12 hrs a day, 6 days a week. UGH! I’m so exausted at the end of the day, and I have an office job so I don’t get to move around a lot. HELP!

  127. Hi Casey,

    I can’t follow the daily workout because my work takes most of my time during the weekdays. I do workout during the weekends though. Can you make a workout calendar for those like me? What can you suggest so that I can achieve the body that i want?

  128. Hey Cassey!
    I haven’t started your workouts yet, but I am planning on it!
    I found out a few days ago that I’m going to Italy in July and I told myself that I have to get in really good shape before I go. I’ve been doing home works outs for a while now but I don’t really see any changes. I was wondering if your beginners workout calendar was good for shaping my legs/thighs? I really want to feel confident with the way I look and I was also wondering if I have time before July to get the body I want..

  129. Hi I`m a beginner and I`ve only been with you for 9 days. The first days I could really feel the burn, but not now, and I dont know what im doing wrong! I feel so bad! Even the “muffin top massacre” i didn’t feel that much right after… what am i doing wrong?
    I want to get rid of my muffintop but i cant since i dont feel anything…… HELP!

  130. Hey Cassey!! I’m a rather tiny girl with high metabolism but i have this big flat rump so i was wondering what kind of workouts i should do to shrink it down, lift, and tone those butt muscles?
    Thank you<3

  131. Hi Cassie,
    Please take down your “kegel alternative exercises” post on YouBeauty. Three of the five exercises you recommend are BAD for the pelvic floor! Someone can end up with pelvic prolapse or worsening an existing condition. Sorry, thanks.
    Micki

  132. Hello Cassey :)
    I weigh 117 lbs,but I have a little muffintop , do I only do toning or do I mostly concentrate on cardio or both because it’s not a lot of fat just a little. I have a trip to catalina island in 2 weeks and I want to you know look good in a 2 piece :) and one more question my inner thighs are not were I want them to be it has some cellulite, are squats and cardio good to tone my inner thighs ? Thank you Cassey so much your videos they have helped me tremendously even though sometimes I feel like punching you or something because I am in pain , not gonna lie . But because of you I am going to look beautiful for prom , summer and for the Rest of my Life !!! Thank you cassey :) !! Thank you for being my personal trainer :)

  133. Do the monthly calendars. One 10-15 minute video may not seem difficult but paired with 4 or 5 others adds up to a great workout — I’m almost always dying every time, and I’d say I’m in pretty good shape as a 26-year-old. Also, in many of her videos, she suggest ways to increase difficulty, such as adding weights or using her mini bands. Be sure you are using the proper body positioning. Sometimes a move can seem easy because our butts are too high or hips are not forward enough or shoulders aren’t away from our ears enough. Body positioning is very important, not only to get the most out of your workout, but also to prevent injury. Don’t worry so much about your weight now, you’re still growing and you’ll probably notice big changes over the next 5-10 years. Incorporate a healthy lifestyle and you should be fine. (: Good luck!

  134. Dear Cassey Ho,

    Would you like to send me an autographed picture of you over to my home mailing address on delivery by mail, please? My home mailing address is 1758 West Brentwood Place in Anaheim, California USA 92804 & my name is Jonathan Myers. Thank you very much, Cassey & I love you!

  135. Tatiana Gregoire says:

    Hi Cassey
    First off I have to say thank you for the amazing work that you are doing ! I love everything from the workouts to the recipes.
    My question is what workouts would be good for someone with an arch in their back. Sometimes when I’m doing an workouts I would feel a lot of tension in my back and feel like I’m not doing the workout right. So what should I do to adjust that or what workouts are best ?

  136. Hi Cassey!
    I don’t know if this is the right place to suggest ideas but I thought I’d try here. I am a student and two of my college classes are 5 hours long (EACH!) with very short breaks occasionally. I get really stiff sitting all that time, as well as tired, and it reminds me of how I feel sitting on a road trip. I loved your video for workouts to do while on the road, but in class it would be too distracting to everyone. Could you maybe suggest subtle stretches/movements that students sitting through a crazy long lecture can do? I think it would also help with concentration and not falling asleep!
    Thank you for all your videos they are AMAZING! Super sore all the time! :)

  137. hey cassey!! i was wondering if you could do more workout printables. also can they maybe be a little harder too because i for one, am on my schools track team and i have to do alot of exercizes and i want to be the track star this year so i wanted to know how to grow stronger? i do eat alot of food but its impossible to gain any weight im almost 15 and i weigh as much as my friends sister who is only 9 and she weight in the 60’s or 70’s and i need more body fat to gain some muscle mass. So if you could please right me back ASAP :) btw your website rocks :) thanks

  138. I have the exact same issue. I tweeted her about it and just now sent her an email. Hopefully it will be fixed! xx

  139. Is it okay to not workout 6 days a week but to instead do more videos in one day and only workout for 4 days? EX. combine the videos scheduled for Friday and do them on Tuesday, along with the Tuesday videos?

  140. Hey Casey, I have been enjoying your vids for the past month. They have really helped me get through some tough times :). Recently I hurt my knee really bad because I din’t see where I was going :/ but I want to keep working out. Any suggestions of great work outs to do without having to put strain on my knee.

  141. I believe you can google them and most of it will show you! After doing blogilates for a while, it becomes easier to recognize the moves :D

  142. Valerie says:

    Hi Everyone,

    Tomorrow I’m starting the beginners calendar, SO EXCITED!!! I do have one question.
    Every day before the workout video there is a particular exercise I have to do (burpees, hollow rocks, roll ups,…) Can someone tell me where I can find an example of these exercises? Cause I have no idea ;-)

    Thanks!!!

  143. Cassey,

    Is the Twitter function working on your Blogilates app? Every time I try to log-in using Twitter, I get kicked out. I’ve tried tweeting you, but never heard back. Please respond. Thanks.

  144. Hi Casey!
    I keep going on and off with your workout calendar but I can say that the past two weeks have been steady. But I do have a question for you or actually any other popster out there…In many of your videos when working on legs you have us point our toes going up and flexing going down. I was curious if there is a specific reason for that. Does it make the workout harder or is it just a preference of yours?

  145. Hi Cassey! I started a renewed weightless journey in January and I have been working regularly again. I call it a journey because I’m older and this time I am thinking about weightless from a fitness and lifelong change perspective instead of chasing the carrot of a target weight goal. It’s more about how I FEEL!! I was having trouble with my abdominal work because I am really heavy, more specifically in the midsection, so some of the traditional ab exercises hurt my lower back. I turned to your site to target the abs and really learn and embrace the lateral breathing and tightening techniques. I really feel the difference in my workouts now so I am continuing with your 28 day video series. Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing your fitness knowledge and experience with us. I’m a die hard fan and I’m letting all my blog followers know about your site!

  146. Hi Cassey! Yesterday I finished a 30 hour famine with my youth group to raise money for a tribe in Kenya. It was surprisingly easy to forget about our hunger when we were kept busy doing community service and stuff during the time but when it was over we ordered a ton of Italian food and sweets but our stomachs couldn’t handle it. I was wondering if you have any suggestions of what to eat before and after the famine for the next time I do it. Also I heard that you loose muscle before you lose fat and I got on the scale after and weighed less. I’m worried because I think I lost muscle weight that I worked so hard for. Do you know what it could be from.

  147. stumbled*

  148. Cassie,

    I think you are a very inspirational person and am glad to have stumbling upon your website. I have been doing these videos for almost a year now. What I admire the most is your emphasis on loving your body, and being strong. So many young girls work out for all the wrong reasons, and I believe with the uplifting attitude you exude, their mindsets will begin to change. I hope you have a wonderful day, and keep doing what you’re doing!

    -Lauren

  149. Hi Cassey ♥ Have you got a workouts for the Thigh gap because I hate my legs and I would like thigh gap .. Help me ! ♥

  150. Hi Casey –

    I came upon to your website and I like it so far … I just want to share my concern with youtube close captioned. It is not accurate 100% of the time because it is based on someone’s hearing and it is transcribed through the computer or something, so is there a way you can put closed captioned on your videos? IT would be awesome ….

    thank you!

  151. Hi Cassey,
    So last summer I got really into your videos, but then exam season came around so I hit a bit of a funk. I really really want to get motivated to get active and restart pilates but I can’t find any sort of oomph to do anything! I’m on a student budget and it’s driving me insane! Any tips you could give me would be so helpful!
    Jess xx

  152. Hi Monica!

    Cassey actually has several videos specifically for beginners (go to the “Workout Videos” banner at the top of the page, mouse over “Series”, and you’ll find them). Also check out her beginners’ calendar! It’s a great transition into the longer and more intensive workouts on the regular calendar, and it’s not date-specific, so you can start it at any time and on any day of the week!

    Finally, the only way to build a strong core is to just keep practicing. Cassey almost always gives modifications, and you’ll learn others from her beginner videos; so pay attention to those and do the exercises to the best of your ability, and before long you won’t believe how strong you’ve become.

    Good luck!

  153. Hi Cassie! I’ve been doing your pop pilates work outs for 3 weeks now and I am completely in love with them! But i have a question! Does pilates really tone and shape your bpdy whilst losing weight? What are the main purposes of doing pilates? I do 20 min cardio and an hour of pilates! (: so i guess my ian question is what are the main benefits and purpose of doing pilates? if anyone else knows, please answer (: thank you! ^^

  154. Hey Casey! I’m trying to get fit, and i’d love to do you videos. But I have a really, really weak core and literally can’t do most of them. Do you think you could make a video for straight up beginners? Please and thank you!

  155. Hi Cassey,
    I’m following your Feb. calendar and love the challenge. Why aren’t the videos posted from Feb. 15 on? I love that you post them for us! it mkes it so easy!

  156. i love ur videos! im runner… well i want to be. and i would love to have a video for a runner and the song: r5-cant forget about you!

  157. Hi Cassey! Your work outs are awesome and have really helped me to get back in shape. I would love to do more cardio, but I don’t really have access to a gym. Do you have a sprinting regiment or some general outdoor running schedule I can follow? Thank you so much!

  158. Hey Cassey! I love your videos, and recipes! I am starting to eat clean and excercize regularly. I was wondering if you could do a cheap clean eats for a cocktail recipe?

  159. SARAH REESE says:

    HI love your videos, I have a desk job that requires me to sit all day. Can you do a video on desk exercises so that I can workout thru out the day?

  160. Hi cassey,
    I love your stuff, just found out im pregnant, so cant do your workouts im soooo upset:( just wondering if you could do like a pregnancy workouts, and or a postnatal workout for when im done. Much love samira xxxx

  161. Hi Cassey! I just wanted to let you know that I love your videos so much and that I made a cocktail inspired by you for youtuber month on my website! I linked everything back to you of course, because you’re the bomb! Keep up the awesome work!

    Protected: Week 1 New Body Makeover Meal Plan, but after entering the password that I received by mail not show it to me! how can I do?

  163. Hey Cassey I was doing the broke hearted challenge and my inner thigh bone will pop or grind together as I kick out and come down, do you know why it does that??

  164. Maureen Whitcomb says:

    Hi Cassey!

    First off I want to say THANK YOU. Your workouts have changed the way I think about fitness and my capabilities. I am healthier and happier. I’m not sure if you have already done one but is there anyway you could do a leg workout to Daft Punk’s “Lose Yourself to Dance”? It’s such a great workout song.

    Thank you so much for everything!
    Maureen

  165. YESENIA DELGADO says:

    Cassey I`m doing you calender for the first time, but i dont get something.. do i have to do just the workout videos that you put or i have to the stretches videos too… (do i have to choose those or i dont need then, because i know you have to stretch before and after each workout), so what do i do???

  166. Cassandra Garza says:

    Hi Cassey! So i recently started doing blogilates and i have no problem at all with sticking to the work out the only problem is my eating. I completed Insanity this past year and i lost 25 pounds but after that i gained back seven pounds so for the past few months I’ve been struggling to get back on track and I’ve found that the problem is my eating. I don’t know why its so hard for me to control my eating the second time around but it is truly frustrating and i find myself feeling insecure and disappointed in my appearance. Please help me get on track i am so fed up at looking at myself in the mirror and not liking what i see so please anything will help and I am willing to try anything at all! Anyone please feel free to respond!

  167. Hey Lana,
    Don’t beat yourself up, everyone struggles at first to break that habits!
    I understand that you want to lose weight and change your lifestyle but I think people often go about it in the wrong way, they try to change everything in one go, and that just creates more battles for yourself!
    When I began breaking my habits, I broke the biggest one first, which for me was getting into the habit of making time for exercising. Give yourself a week or two to break the first habit and then tackle the next… this way you continue to break down the walls and also find it more manageable as you begin to realise that you do have the strength to break the habit and the next one gets easier and easier!
    Whatever you do in life, you build on it, you aren’t expected to just be able to do it from the word go! Give yourself a break and just tackle a habit one by one and before you know it, you will be complete!
    Good luck, (I hope it helps)

  168. I really need some help. I started these workouts in the middle of January. Because of my work schedule I have stopped doing them completely, that and I can’t keep myself motivated, no matter how hard I try. I haven’t worked out in a week and I feel bad for it. I wanted to start again today, But I’m afraid I’ll just keep messing up. I work 7 days and then I’m off 7 days, But when I work it’s over night (10 pm to 8:30 am) Those are the hardest days to stay on track because I end up sleeping most of the day. I am tired of disappointing myself, and this summer I want to wear a bikini for the first time in ages, I’m not extremely big, but I could lose like 25 pounds. This schedule also messes with my eating habits, and the store I work at only has junk food. I want to know if it’s possible to get the body I want in June/July. This work schedule is driving me crazy. I think I need a daytime job. I really want to lose the weight. Another thing with getting side tracked is getting too comfortable. I need an effective way to change my habits. I want to be healthy and slimmer. I am tired of making excuses. I am only 22, but I feel like 30 something. Drinking ater isn’t a problem. Eating my 3 meals a day is not easy. I think I need a kick in the butt. I just want my motivation to last. Sorry for rambling.

  169. Hi cassey,
    I don’t know why but whenever I exercise,I get itchy.do you have any solution?And also,i can’t stretch my body,I really tried my best but I can’t…plzhelp me!!

  170. I have the password for febuready but it won’t work, please help, naomi

  171. Dear Lana!
    Hi fellow Popster! I`m Rachel from the US and just saw your post!
    I know I´m not Cassey but I used to have the very same problem 2 years ago!
    If you don’t mind here are some tips I used to give it a start, of course it will take some mind-body control
    but everyone starts somewhere!
    I used to eat crisps and and goodies every friday night with my mom so instead of eating the whole bag
    I`d consiously put half the bag in a bowl (bag goes into cupboard and out of mental reach) and then have some finely sliced fruit to compensate for the other half.

    Or simply take it easy by turning to healthier choices like whole wheat or dark chocolate, try to enjoy it consiously, savouring the flavour and seeing it rather as a treat for the weeks hard work.
    If you have a sweet tooth like me then try to save some room for dessert after your main meal:
    Have some yogurt with fruit, a fruit salad, or look up some awesome healthy dessert recipes online!

    Blogilates has tons of em and so do many other cool blogs (Chocolatecoveredkatie,etc.)

    Hope this helps! <3

  172. Also, start with the beginners workout calendar! I definintely feel you on the upset-because-not-able-to-finish thing, but it just means you need to start a bit more slowly. Build up your strength and your confidence will build with it!

  173. I NEED HELP PLEEEASE!!! Hi Cassey, I love your website, newsletters and everything you stand for. I’m having trouble at the moment braking the habit!! I know I need to eat better (cut out the chocolate, sweets and crisps) and get into a exercise routine!! But I’m having trouble starting! I’ll be really go and then go for chocolate in the afternoon or after dinner! It’s frustrating coz I know what I need to do, but my mind takes over and before I know it I’m eating crisps or sweets. Please help me to get my mindset right! I need to improve my health and lose some weight!
    Thanks in advance Lana

  174. Hey Cassey! I absolutely love blogilates. For the past year, I’ve been staying fit with your videos, but not in any regular schedule. But now I’m stepping it up a notch and getting serious about getting healthy. I know clean eating is ESSENTIAL to getting serious, but I’m in college! I can only spend so much on groceries, and I was just wondering if in the future you could do some type of “clean eating on a budget” video. Thanks for being an awesome motivator and a great person! Have a wonderful day.

  175. Hi There,

    I am about to start the 12 week body transformation and I don’t really know what I am meant to do? Am I meant to do extra cardio on top of the calendar and if so how much and of what do i do?
    Also, how often are you allowed to have a YOLO meal?
    I don’t have any social media platforms so am also having trouble with getting Week 8’s meal plan password. Is there something that can be done for those without access to Facebook, Instagram etc?

  176. Jessica Terry says:

    Hi Cassey,
    Please provide some tutorial or tips for Pregnant Ladies out there. Although theres a baby growing inside. I will still like to keep in shape as much as possible. Please please please!!!

    On a sidenote, I’ve workout solely following ur videos 2 years ago in preparation for my Wedding and theres a tremendous result. I feel toned and confident. A Huge Thank You for being my inspiration…

    Hugs..

  177. Hi Cassey, i love your Pilates programs. I am recovering from a double mastectomy and prosthetic reconstruction. I am not able to do many of the upper arm and push up exercises. I have scrolled the net looking for a Pilates program specifically for mastectomy survivors but with no joy. I am sure there would be a demand for such a program. Do you have any advice thank you kate

  178. I’m currently doing this challenge: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/461056080573794182/
    Followed by a Blogilates video of choice. If you’re not a competitive person with yourself, get a friend to join you! It’s enough to get you pumped up and if you’re feeling motivated / have time, you can keep doing videos or go out for a jog. Something small helps me because if I feel like I can easily conquer it, I’m more likely to do it. And something small almost always leads to wanting to do more :]

  179. Cassey,

    When I first saw your videos through a third-party video site, I was like, “Who is this girl and why is she so freaking perky about everything?!” But the more I watched your clean eats videos, the more intrigued I was. Then I found your actual site, and I am so glad that I did!

    My mom is a workaholic (she owns four companies and has literally no time for herself), and I’ve prescribed her with a 30-day abs/leg/squat challenge followed by a daily dose of a Blogilates video of her choice. With the meal plans you give out, it makes it way easier for her to not give in to take-out lunches every day. I’m doing the same thing, and I loooove doing your workouts.

    Seriously, thank you so much for everything that you post. As a poor just-out-of-college kid, it’s great to feel like I’ve gotten a great workout without having to spend a dime on a gym. And it fits into even the busiest of lifestyles! So thank you for helping my mom and myself get fit and stay there. I really do appreciate everything that you do! (And it is so great that you are the perkiest instructor in the entire world. It makes it so much easier to get through the tougher work outs!!!)

    <3

  180. Hi Cassey,

    I just wanted to thank you so much for all the hard work you’re doing and sharing it the way you do – with honesty, simplicity and that communicative enthusiasm of yours I’ve honestly never seen elsewhere.

    To be honest I’d have probably ended up in the depths of anorexia if a friend of mine hadn’t show me a link on youtube, with one of your vid. I’m still feeling uneasy about my body, y’know, the “taking too much place” kind of thought; but training and watching you train with me at the same time is bringing me a sense of nice and warm comfort. Hey, I can do a whole vid without any pause now, haha!

    You’re helping me a lot through this. You’re an amazing and beautiful person, both physically and mentally, and your soul is gold. Don’t let anyone take that away from you please.

    Thank you again.

  181. Hello! I was wondering why am I missing so many videos from the app? Does this happen with everyone else? Sometimes it takes up to 3 months so one of your newest videos (wich are already in the calendar) appear on my phone. Its really upseting :(

  182. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
    website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  183. Cassey! You should do a video with the Frozen soundtrack! Frozen as in the new disney movie Frozen that is soooo cute and has awesome songs!

  184. I did’nt know about this blog, very interesting one!
    Hope you can find interesting also bodycode training system ;)

  185. Motivation to work out doesn’t need to be present every minute of every day! What’s important is that you feel excited to eat a beautiful meal, enjoy the outdoors and when you want to, have a great workout! I don’t think the email address that you posted is valid Emma, perhaps check it?

    Best wishes to you, happiness comes from all the little things you do for yourself throughout each day, not from pushing yourself to do something that you’re not feeling excited about.

  186. Don’t worry I feel the same way. Maybe you should go to something a little easier if the workout is too har. I am one year younger that you so my method should apply to you. Maybe do a little easier workouts. Also if you need a break in her video just take one. I’m not saying take a break anytime you’re tired. Just give yourself a break limit like I will only take four five second breaks. I hoped I help you.

  187. Dear Cassie, I feel so sad. I am twelve years old and starting year 8 in 2014. Compared to all the other girls in my grade I am very overweight. I have lots of friends and no one mentions anything about it but I can still tell everyone thinks it. I found out about you through bubzbeauty and I started to do your videos. But then my mum got sick and I couldn’t do the videos as I was always at the hospital and I tried to get back on track but it didn’t work. Today was the day that I was going to start again but I just couldn’t do it. I had no energy and I tried to do the abs on fire video but I had no energy and it hurt so much. I just stopped and burst into tears on my bedroom floor. I was so angry with myself because it hurt too much and I couldn’t do it. I don’t have any motivation at all and I have no energy. I don’t know what to do. I really want to have a healthy body but sometimes I feel really bummed out like I don’t care about exercise any more. I know it’s probably a pain for you to read these really long posts but I don’t know what to do. I don’t have enough confidence to wear anything other than pants to school. I never wear shorts or a skirt. I feel so discouraged. Please reply to this email address: [email protected]

  188. Elyza Basas says:

    Hi Cassey! I have trouble working out, could you help me?

  189. Hi Cassey,
    I just received my fit journal! Looking forward to starting up with the rest of the group that’s beginning January 1st! I love the illustrations and the whole set up of the journal, really well done. Love it!

  190. Cassey, you are amazing, okay? Your workouts put me in such a good mood every day; not just because afterwards I feel energized and ready to conquer the day, but because of your contagiously bubbly personality. You make me want to strive to be a genuinely happy person too. I have so enjoyed having you as my “trainer.” I appreciate everything you do for us popsters. Please don’t ever stop being you and doing your thing. Once again, you’re amazing!

  191. Hi, Just got the menu for the body makeover, but can you please tell me if i can sub the whey powder shakes for something else…not keen on shakes, thanks…
    I just want to add I have been doing Caseys videos for a year or two, on and off and my legs are so much stronger.. thank you.

  192. I just wanted to say about the ‘thigh gap’ blog that I find it ridiculous that your thighs are even an issue for people. You are seriously beautiful inside and out. I find the fact that people are looking at your thighs and criticising them, completely overlooking how amazing, kind and generous you are to give so much of yourself for our benefit, ridiculous. Also, when they say those things about your thighs and you’re thighs are amazing, what are they saying about people who’s thighs touch? It’s insane how warped our ideas of perfection and beauty have become. My thighs may NEVER not touch, but I can work on being happy with the way they are as I’m changing them. There’s nothing wrong with having thighs that touch and when people say there is, it automatically makes a huge percentage of women feel wrong. That’s why I like how you talk about body positivity. I really wish people would learn to be supportive or be brave enough to show their support instead of hide behind a false vibrato of ‘I’m not happy with myself so I’m gonna put someone else down.’ We already have so much in this world working against us; no time, no money, no support, that we need to learn to give others the same support and safety that you provide here. I for one appreciate how sincere and giving you are. You really deserve better than what you got, and honestly your website deserves better. I really hope that everyone can come together, show each other that love and acceptance is most important, especially when on a weight loss, gain or strength building journey. I think our bodies change so much or fail to change and it challenges people emotionally. That is where and why we need the most support; and you provide that here so I want to thank you and let you know that there are people out there and on here who still believe in what you’re doing. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication. Love and Aloha from Hawaii. :)

  193. Dear Cassey,
    First off, thank you so much for your videos! My goal for working out is building muscle, especially in my legs/glutes. I’m not necessarily looking to lose fat (I’m an extreme ectomorph) and I’m just trying to get into a good strengthening routine. Any suggestions? Not sure if any of your videos really focus on bulking that much. Again, thank you so much!

  194. Im at university but doing a year’s internship. I have just joined blogilates and am on the beginners workout. I definitely agree motivating yourself is hard to do, but Im pushing myself to get it done everyday. I hope you guys find some way of motivating yourself :)

  195. That is what I was wondering too as I have a number of food allergies as well

  196. HI Cassey! I love your workouts and your recipes. I am having so much fun with PopPilates and Blogilates!! You are so beautiful, and your skin looks flawless!! what is your skin care routine? my skin is so troubled with black and white heads, nothing i try seems to help.

  197. So I just did your full body pilates session for beginners yesterday… I’m otherwise a dancer but I haven’t worked out properly in almost a year. However, as I was doing the exercises I almost felt nothing in my abs and I thought it was because I have a fairly strong core. My legs and butt though! Those exercises were killing me and I couldn’t keep up with you in your video! However today I woke up and I was sore in my upper abs and not anything was felt in the legs/but! Why is that so?

  198. Hi! I’m a huge fan of your blog! We have an online class at lifedojo.com called Fit For Life: The Science of Exercise that we can give you the link to the free trial for. Here it is https://lifedojo.com/join-lifedojo/ We would love to hear some feedback on it if that’s possible. Thanks so much!

  199. Cassey,
    I really do appreciate all the hard work you put into your website and for your fans. You’re a great person with a lot of love to share!

    This comment isn’t directed at you personally, as I’m sure you are working very hard. However, I need to share my disappointment with ordering the Fit Journal.

    I placed my order on November 26th (as many other followers of Bogilates did) and I still am waiting for it to arrive in the mail. You made it seem as though things would go smoothly and everyone would receive their books right on time to start the New Body Makeover. I was really looking forward to starting the routine with the whole community. This is really disappointing and discouraging because I feel like the whole Blogilates community was amped up for it and now we’re all left waiting. I know you have given us some substitutes for writing things down but I feel like the big feature of this Body Makeover was the Fit Journal.

    I also feel some concern for the meal plan you’ve given us. There definitely is a lot of variety and I like that you’ve put in all the calorie and nutrition information but I just can’t justify shopping for over 2 dozen different items per week, I’m not hating on the whole plan, I definitely want to try some of the recipes, I’m just used to eating simpler meals I guess. I also wonder why every dairy item has to be low/non-fat? Fat is good, not bad. And can keep you satisfied longer! I don’t understand why the diet world is afraid of naturally fatty foods and opting for 0% fat everything. Please explain?

    This is not a hate comment, I just needed to share my frustration and disappointment with the wait time on the journal.

  200. I am a teenager as well (GO BABY POPSTERS!!!!!) and i am just having a yoplait greek yogurt instead. I’m not getting as much protein as her, but I usually have around 70-80 grams a day. I calculate everything i eat using myfitnesspal, so when I make substitutions to the calendar i can make sure it isn’t going way different then hers. I am having about 53 percent carbs, 29 percent fat, and the rest protein everyday. i use the calendar as more of an outline!

  201. just do the calendar videos, but if you are feeling up for it, try to do the regular calendar! Or what I personally recommend is doing the beginner calendar, and then go to backonpointe.tumblr.com and do one or two of her cardio (or really any) workouts. There ya go!

  202. I’ve got the exact same problem & unfortunately that’s not the first time this happens :/ I hope someone or Cassey herself can help!

  203. Hello,
    I just started the beginners calander and I was just wondering…..am I supposed to be doing more workout than what the calander says? I mean, should I be doing some cardio along with the vidoes or am I getting enough with just the vidoes alone? I feel like I should be doing more…..

    Thanks,
    Serena
    Washington State

  204. hi Cassy
    I got the password for decembercalender but i can´t come in and see it :'(

  205. Hey Casey,
    I had a quick question regarding losing weight and using you videos to do it. My cousin actually lost weight using your videos but she told me how she lost her curves (her breasts and butt.) I was wondering if there was any way to avoid this while losing weight. I am mainly interested in losing my belly fat and love handles. I really want to tone my midsection. I don’t mean to make it seem like I am asking about spot reduction because I am not. I just want to know if it is possible to avoid losing my curves. I don’t mind my thighs because I like having a bigger butt. Thanks for reading this and I hope you can answer my question.

    Hi Cassey,

  207. Hi Cassey
    I was wondering if it would be okay to start the 12 week transformation on January 1st instead?

  208. Thuy Trang Nguyen says:

    Hey Cassie,
    is it a concern if I am still new to blogilates and I am already starting your new 12 week new body makeover?

  209. Hello,
    I was just wondering if it is a good idea to use the whey protein for a teenager?
    Would like any opinions as soon as possible.
    Thankyou

  210. I have tight hamstrings which makes it hard to do some of the leg and ab workouts that involve having a straight leg, and I have been with your for about 6 months now and they are still tight. It helps some to do the dynamic workouts an stretch after them but they are not getting any looser or I guess more flexible. I’m a catcher in softball and I do squats throughout the year to keep my lower body in shape and I also do variations of lunges, lunge jumps, squat jumps. Could me doing those things be causing my tight hamstrings?

  211. hi cassey
    i just want you to know that you are an amazing human being , you have no idea how much my life has change since i found yor blog , i used to feel ugly and fat all the time and i used to do unhealthy thing to loose weight and even it worked at the moment i would gain all the weight back quickly and i used to get so depressed that i stop going out i didnt talk to anybody. but one day i found your blog and i just loved every video i watched , that day i ask my dad if he could buy me a yoga mat, and that day we went to the U.S (i live in the border) and he bought me a yoga mat that sunday night my life changed . i start de beginners calendar and eating healthy , i learned to love my body the way it is and since then i have more confidence i staredt at my new school and i felt amazing i made alot of friends something i wouldnt do before because of my lack of confidence and i owe it all to you

    thanks :)

  212. eatcleantraindirty :is the password for NOVEMBURN calendar!!! :D

  213. Hey I am also waiting for my password

  214. Hey there Cassey,
    Before I join the New Body Challenge (which I really want to do), I wanted to make sure the meal plans are going to have alternative choices. I have food allergies/sensitivities.
    Thanks

  215. I signed up last month but haven’t got the password for November’s calendar and am quite bummed about it. :(

  216. Fit Journal-Vegan?
    Will the meal plan that accompanies the Fit Journal accommodate vegan diets?

  217. Hello, M. James!

    I obviously don’t know how much weight you are trying to lose, but I really recommend that you join us in Cassey’s 12-week New Body Makeover Challenge starting on December 1st. All of the information you need you can find at this link right here: http://www.blogilates.com/motivational-2/the-best-5-ways-to-lose-weight-blogilates-fit-journal-is-here

    Basically, For the last several months Cassey has been working on designing a 12-week diet plan for us that is based on eating clean, eating yummy, and eating variety so that we don’t get bored! She is also releasing a fitness journal ($30) to help us keep track of EVERYTHING during the 12-week challenge: Every bite of food we eat, every crunch we do, every hour we sleep, and how we are feeling throughout the challenge.

    According to Cassey, 12 weeks of complete dedication (meaning NO CHEATING!!!) is all we need to really transform our bodies. Of course, that doesn’t mean that if your goal is to lose 100 pounds then you will lose it all in 12 weeks, but it does mean that no matter what your goal is, you will see noticeable and radical results with 12 weeks of eating right and exercising hard.

    I really recommend that you join us in strictly following the 12-week meal plan and dedicatedly recording things in the journal. True, it is possible to lose weight without either of these things, but I know that (for me, anyway) the added accountability of knowing exactly what I am allowed to eat every day and writing everything down (not to mention the accountability of the entire blogilates community doing this challenge at the same time!) will be very, very helpful for me.

    I really hope you join us, M. James! I am really excited to get started, myself. I wish it were already December 1st! And remember: A diet and exercise routine is like a marriage: If you cheat on it, it doesn’t work!

  218. I found you today. I begin my workouts tomorrow morning. I’ve tried everything from changing my diet, to working out in my room, going to the gym, everything. I get so stressed working out in front of others because, usually, I’m the biggest girl there. Anyway, I’m hoping this works! I’m excited to try something new. I have one question, for anyone to answer, what do you recommend for someone who has to lose weight in a short amount of time? I have 5 months until a special occasion. I don’t want to hurt myself, but I want to lose as much as possible. Thanks in advance!

  219. Nikki Cole says:

    I’m having the same issue.

  220. Hi there,

    Took me ages to find your blog link on the Youtube website. I discovered your videos two days ago and quite enjoy doing workout along with you. I am from New Zealand. Here it is spring now so we will have Christmas in summer. I am thin but not quite fit. When I eat a meal I feel bloated and that’s why I want to get back into shape. I had no trouble changing my diet because it is way easier to drink more water, eat fruit and cut down the junk food when it’s warm and sunny.

  221. Hi Cassey!

    I just made a purchase on the November calendar (iPhone), and I noticed there was one mistake in the calendar – there are two 3!! (The date) I tried to restore the purchase and see if it would solve it, but it was still the same.

  222. Hi Cassey!

    First of all, I want to say thank you for being such a wonderful instructor! I’ve been doing your calendar since April and I already lost weight. :) My concern is I seem to be losing motivation and the will to do more since I’m so busy and I’m on my last year in college and I have my internship at the same time. I really want to get back on track but I do not know how :( I’m afraid I’ll be gaining back everything that I’ve lost if I don’t do something about it :( Please help me Cassey.

    Thank you and more power!

  223. Dear Cassey,
    First at all i love what your doing and your inspire me.
    But i have a question i want to print the bikini contest meal plan. But my laptop ignore it can you maybe send it to me because it drives me crazy and i want to lose weight so badly.
    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Lots of.love,
    Sharona

  224. Hi Cassey!

    I was wondering what kinds of healthy snacks you keep around or would suggest? As a college student with limited options it can be really hard to makes healthy choices. Also I’m a culinary student right now so my classes require me to eat foods that are not always healthy, but knowing the tastes of things is essential. I make my own food when I can and use your videos to work out. My problem tends to be snacking after working in the dining services all night.
    Your advice would mean a great deal!

    Thanks, Gena

  225. Hey Casey,
    I love your website, youtube channel, and your apple app, but I’d like to ask for an addition to your app. I take my ipad to the gym with me and its too hard to listen to your videos and I don’t like to bring papers to the gym only for me to get them crumpled up. So I was thinking you could add the “printables” to the app, that way I everything is all together and organized.
    Just think about it…
    Thanks, Betty

    PLEASE come do a meetup in NEWPORT NEWS, VIRGINIA!!!! We have the Ferguson center of the arts, Christopher Newport University that Jillian Michaels came to PLEASE COME!!!!!! I would LOVE to see you :D

  227. Hi, Cassey!
    I’m writing to you, because you are my only hope. I am 23, young mother. Before pregnancy I was skinny without any diet plan or exercising, but things have changed. Now I have 4 inches more in belly, 3 more in hips… and I am dreaming about being fit again. I’ve watched your videos and my determination is growing up every day. But here it comes – one “little” problem: I have a lot of strech marks on my breasts, my skin isn’t firm. Is it possible to lose weight and few inches from belly, hips, arms and have the same breasts size? I am afraid of having boobs like an empty sack. :(
    Please, Cassey! Help me!

    Love,
    Olga

  228. Hi Cassey,
    I know you get tons of emails and messages every day, but I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for what you do! There are not too many fitness instructors providing free and effective information to readers, but there’s sooooo much on your YT and website that I cannot WAIT to get started! I cannot wait to start seeing the effects of your workouts, and I’ll be sure to refer my friends to you too.
    Thanks again xx

  229. Cassey-
    I’m new to and love your website, but a few things have been irking me, and I feel like if you made a few changes it would help newbies like me navigate around better.

    1. A description of your different workout types. It took me quite a while to figure out what a POPster is, and what the song blasts were etc etc, so a quick breakdown of the different workout videos would be super helpful for a new person like me to figure out what type I want to try out.

    2. A better index of workouts. It’s SUPER hard and lengthy to scroll through all of them with those big video thumbnails on the page. If there were just a plain list, maybe organized by type of workout and body part that would be SO useful to just scan through and see your options. Yesterday I wanted to do a quick ab workout, but spent like 15 min scrolling though all the song challenges before just settling on the newest one.

    3. Song challenges: GREAT idea, super fun, but I couldn’t hear the song hardly at all without having to turn the volume up to you yelling full blast. Not sure if its just the acoustics in that room you were using or what, but I want to hear the song AND you, otherwise its just you talking through a 3.5 min workout

    4. A better index of recipes: check out some food blogs to see how they do it, but again, super hard to scroll through your blog entries 3 at a time to see all the dessert recipes you made. Instead one page with hyperlinks to all of them listed by type of recipe or whatever would be enormously helpful. I love your recipes, but get frustrated spending excess time scrolling. Example: I have a crazy sweet tooth, just spent like 15 min trying to scroll through all your dessert recipes instead of just having a one click place with a list of the titles of the recipes to just scroll over and say YES- mini cheesecakes, done.

    Anyways, like I said, I love your site, but its just so hard to navigate I think if you organized some things more simply with just a list of words instead of the blog post intro deal with the pic and the first few lines it would make figuring your site out so much easier!

    Thanks a bunch!

  230. Stephanie says:

    Hey there…. I know most ladies are not looking to “bulk up”… but I would like to have definition! With your videos what should I do to focus more on really defining my arms? Thanks for any input and I LOVE your videos, I am new and have been on your site ALL weekend. Thanks again. Love you so much! :) -Stef

  231. Hi Cassey! I discovered you about a month ago, and I’ve been gradually incorporating your routines into my daily workout. I’m really shaping up my arms and legs, but no change in my midsection. I’m 16 years old, and a few years back gained 100+ pounds from a high dosage of steroids! Ick! Anyway that’s why I’m overweight at such a young age (I’ve already lost a total of 70 pounds though) basically I’d really like some specific (easy to moderate for beginners) excerises that will murder that stomach and back fat! Any help from you or my fellow popsters would be AMAZING! :)

  232. hey Cassey :)
    I love all your work out vids :) you are incredible and so inspirational! Could you please make a workout to the song “Ain’t it fun” by Paramore. Thank you! Love you lots

  233. Cassey,
    I’m expecting. What can I do in the coming months when I’m bigger to keep in shape that isn’t too vigorous.

  234. Hey Cassey!
    I love your workouts, and i would like to begin to eat cleaner to! My problem is that a lot of your recipies conatins bananas, and I’m allergic to bananas. Do anyone have any suggestions of what I can eat instead?

  235. Hi,

    I can’t open the october calendar. Please help

  236. Hey Cassey,
    I have a suggestion based on my brief experience on your site. A friend and I are trying the Abs-tober and many of the exercises are on a level that we are not comfortable performing. Perhaps there is a way to either start out the exercise with a modified version, or upload an entire video at a moderate pace/level for those that want to get in shape but cannot possibly keep up. Both my friend and I have health issues that prevent us from fully completing the exercises so we have to figure out own modifications, but we have no way of knowing if they are suitable for the area you intend to work on.
    My friend has done the bulk of the beginner’s calendar but feels that there is a bridge missing between beginners and monthly challenges. I think the monthly challenges are a great idea, but when things are too hard, people quit. I don’t want to see people quit because there is no modifications to help them succeed.

  237. Hi Cassey,

    I’ve just started blogilates and love it…thank you!! I’m having just one problem with the mat workouts. I’m ok on my side and on my stomach, but whenever I lay on my back, I’m in so much pain that I have to stop. I do have a previous injury (pinched nerve-lower left back) along with bad knees and hips. I would love to be able to do the moves on my back. My doctor’s cleared me for it but it’s just too painful…any suggestions?

  238. Hey!

    I was wondering, is it better to do a short intense workout or a longer workout which obviously is less intense?

  239. Hey Cassie,
    I am new to blogilates and I was wondering if you could do a meal plan for college students?

  240. Hey Cassey,
    I had a baby 5 weeks ago and I had a c section. I was told by my provider that its VERY difficult getting rid of the pouch where I had the c section she said most women do not get rid of it. I am 5’3 and weigh 139. I would like to get toned up and get back to my regular jean size which is a size 3 I also weighed 118 before I got pregnant. but, that’s another story :) I am also an exclusive breastfeeding mom and I have to eat so much a day to produce milk for my baby. I was wondering if you could help me with a diet plan for breastfeeding and to loose this pouch.

  241. Hey cassey! My formal/prom/homecoming is in about month and I was wondering if you can do a workout for it :D I love your videos soo much and you do not know how grateful I am for them!! I really want to rock an sexy body at the dance and hope you can help me shed a few kg/ pounds. Anyways your an inspirational figure and your bubbly and funny personality really keeps me motivated :D

  242. tatz right arms wont reduce nahh..same prob over heree..we want more arm exercises…:)

  243. Casseyyyyyy wee need ur app for smart 4nz as wellllll….PLEAEAEAEAEAAASEE work on ittttttttt,,,,!!!!!!!!!!LOVE YAAA!!!<3<3<3<3<3

  244. Hi Cassey!
    I have just found you this year and I LOVE your workouts and Recipes and I love how your making me loose those extra kilos and making me push myself!!
    SO my dilemma…
    I’m doing year 12 (in Australia) so I try and do your videos as often as I can, But because i still go to school and i’m required to do at least 3 hours of study per night and my exams are just over a month away :s it’s a tad hectic and I tend to take bad food for recess and snacks at school because it’s easier to make and buy which I really am trying to change! But time and family are not always on my side :/
    Soooooo my question Is, is there any good snack food I can take to school that i can make at home and doesn’t take too long to make? (that preferably doesn’t have gluten or dairy)
    I have tried your wheat thins with gluten free flour and i think i have had them too often because i’m kinda over them for now and banana chips because i loove banana’s, but they take forever to make so i don’t make them often.
    So do you have any idea’s or suggestions to help me out?

  245. hey casey! I’ve been doing Pilates for years now so its not new to me or anything but for some reason lately my quads really hurts when I extend the legs during Pilates and have to hold it. Am I not stretching enough? I really don’t think thats it because i stretch for a good 10 minutes before I even use a foam roller to stretch out my tight muscles. and its not because their too tired its a different kind of feeling… I’m just not sure what it could be, what do you think?
    thanks, absolutely love your videos!!
    -cara

  246. Ashley Pfeifer says:

    Hey Cassey,
    I was following you and your workout/healthy way of living up to about my 4-5months of pregnancy. My question for you now is when and where do I start? I’m due to have this little one on Friday Sept. 20th!!! So within a week!!!! I would just like to figure out my game plan and as soon as I get the ok from the doctor I would like to know where I should start and have already done the research. I know its not all about the exercises either and already have my nutrition plan in place:) thanks Cassey hope you can help me out

  247. Hi Cassey,
    I’ve been watching your site and videos without doing them for a while now and finally signed up. I do have a question about your transformation stories. Are there any out there for women that have had kids? I’m 26, but I have had 2 kids and I find that a lot of people that yell about big weight loss are always people that don’t have kids. Having kids stretches the muscles in your stomach and other areas. I just wanted to know if you had some inspiration for women that don’t have those curves like you anymore.

  248. Hey!

    I would recommend just going really slowly and not focusing so much on repetitions but rather on your form. Also, if you feel like you just can’t go on anymore, pause the video and catch your breath for a few minutes, nobody’s watching you after all. :)

  249. I am 55 years old and on day 5 of your beginners workout calendar. My abs are so weak that I couldn’t do most of the video for day 5. HELP! Do I just muddle through and hope my abs catch up or are there other workouts that will help build my abs to the level that I am able to do these workouts? Either way, I’m still pushing through and doing what I can. Thanks for making these available :)

  250. Hi, I love Casey’s videos and the app so much, but it’s so frustrating that it won’t let me log in my Facebook, so I cannot comment or post anything, does anybody know when they’ll fix that? I have an iPhone 5

  251. hi Cassey,

    my name is lulu and am from Oman. i like to workout a lot and i wanted to ask, whats the best way to tone your body??
    i have lost a lot of weight but haven’t been able to shape up as how i want. especially the arms.

  252. Hey cassey,
    I was wondering if you could tell me the best way to lose pounds around the weist and below them in the curves.

  253. Thaanks! i’ll try those :)

  254. I wasn’t able at first either.

    Wall sits are great! Stand in front of a wall with your feet in front of you, lean back, and slowly lower yourself on the wall until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold this til failure, or until you literally fall because you’re shaking and tired. Do this a few times a week and your quads will tighten up :)

  255. Hey Cassey!

    I was so determent to start a healthy life style! I’ve been eating healthy and I’ve been running. But now i’ve just went to the doctor who said that my kneecap is loose and that my quadriceps are not strong enough for the moment to be running. Can u give me some tips to make my quads stronger because they are killing me right now but i really want to start working out!!

  256. Anybody have any tips on how to help my thighs out? I just started the blogilates videos after my best friend had some amazing results with them but i am really struggling with my thighs. They are the most fatty part of my body at the moment and everytime i do something directed at the lower abs or the thighs being involved they cramp and really hurt. I cant get past the pain for about 3-5 min. This mainly happens when i do something like the corkscrew or the triangle where my legs are being moved alot. Any advice on how to prevent the cramping from happening. I do stretch before I start usually with one of the videos about stretching.

  257. You can also google healthy alternative recipes for gatorade, there are some ideas there. Or drink coconut water but gatorade has so much sugar. Oatmeal is great, I suggest Casseys Banana Berry Crepe recipe (uses oat flour) when you are craving carbs. I’m not sure about the coffee. However I drink about 2 cups a day with no sugar or sweetener and a little cream, I cut the sugar after having kids and needed to lose that belly fat (I did).

  258. Hey, I can’t open the august calendar either! It keeps redirecting me to the same page!

  259. hi my name is Rachel I have issues with starving, binging, and I have tried purging but it didn’t work. I thought I was fat when I was 5’7″ and 140 lbs. at first I lost it healthily but then I got stressed I wanted to be a beautiful model someday and I had to be skinny. I starved myself down until I was 5’8″ 115 lbs.
    and you know what I liked that. and now that I stopped I weigh 124 lbs. and you know what? I miss it I want it back sometimes and every lbs. I gained I cried but Cassey helped me feel better. I still hate my weight but I am learning to love myself again. you don’t want to be like this you need to stay strong’ workout eat clean’ and smile because when you are happy, you inspire.

  260. Gatorade is not good for you! it has way to much sugar. water is the best but if you want the electrolytes that Gatorade has get smart water or coconut water. oatmeal is great for you.

  261. Hey cassey,
    I have a solution!! freeze red grapes. they are delicious and taste just like candy bc they are sweet! and hey a little fruit never hurt anyone right?

  262. I have also tried the password over and over and it is not working! I even double, triple checked it!

  263. Hey guys, *Coffee, Gatorade and Tummy Question*

    Questions for you that hopefully you can shed some light on:

    1) Can Coffee make you retain tummy fat (or, just fat in general?) Not the syrup-y coffee’s, but just, let’s say, an iced coffee with one Splenda and Regular Milk. Did some research on this, and the internet is 50/50.

    2) I only drink water when I’m doing cardio and Cassey’s toning video’s- but apparently (and according to my boyfriend, as well) Gatorade is better for you, which I hate. Uh…I’d rather not drink the sugar and whatever else is in there, but is this true? (So excited to throw this one back at him if I get an answer :D )

    3) Last but not least, what’s the most effective food to eat when trying to trim your mid section? Anything in particular to avoid? I love oatmeal..is that a bad thing?

    :)

  264. Hi,

    I’m having trouble opening up the August Calendar :/

  270. Hi, I can’t seem to open the August calendar to print on this computer. I had opened it earlier in August on my phone but now can’t open it there either. Any idea how to get in to the calendar to print? I have the right password too!

  271. hi cassey,

  272. It took me 5 months only working out 4-5 times a week to notice definition and loss of inches – strictly blogilates! :) I know I’m not an expert just sharing my experience!

  273. I am having the same issue!

  274. Hey Cassey! I just want to ask you.. I haven’t done certain videos on my calendar because I was so busy that day. Should add the videos for the tomorrow’s exercise?

  280. Lovisa from sweden says:

    You are amazing…..
    Love your videos. My traning is now so much fun!

  281. I have been really enjoying all of your videos so far! Your enthusiasm is infectious and the videos are all so varied that it makes working out go by so much quicker (I usually hate working out lol). It’s crazy how much Pilates really does work out your muscles with such small movements and no weights. I always feel the burn and can feel it the next day when I do your workouts. Anyway, just wanted to say I really admire the way you put yourself out there and enjoy all of your videos. Keep up the good work!

  282. Cassey,

    I have been truly inspired and motivated by you. While I am making it my goal to work out each day, I was wondering if you could inspire me at work? I’m at work all day and come home exhausted. Any tips on ways to workout or stay fit while i’m at my desk?

    thanks!

  283. Having the same problem! Please help!!

  284. Hey,

  290. I think this is a great idea!!! I’m going back to school in September too, some cheap clean eats about this would be great!!!

  291. i aboslutely loveeeeee blogilaties im kinda addicted to do these workouts at night! i would like some back to school clean eat ideas! stuff that is filling because i participate in a lot of sports which require energy! I try to watch carbs but i know i need that energy.

  292. Anonymous says:

    I like the idea of Togo/school cheap eats idea !!!

  293. Chelsea Moore says:

    Hey Cassey,

    Please do a school/to-go lunch version of cheap clean eats :)
    that would be wonderful!

    Chelsea <3

  294. what are the two foods that you recommend not to eat

  295. You can’t spot reduce you have to do cardio and you will lose fat all over your body including your cheeks you just need to do your cardio

  296. Hi. Firstly, do we ever get responses for this by the experts on blogilates? Or is it just the readers that upload their comments?
    And second, I’m not looking for any shortcuts here and only asking this for information purposes. I have been working out for years and have started eating clean for about one year now. Although I hadn’t been eating this many meals for a day and nor had I included so much proteins. So, maybe because of that, while the weight is maintained, I have very little muscle definition and toning on my stomach, arms, and buttocks. My question is how long does it take to start showing some results in your body / muscle toning/ flab reducing, after starting to eat this way (while i continue to workout 5 times a week, and eat clean and healthy). Thank You

  297. Hi Cassey,

    I’m May, 21 years old and I come from France and I’m totally addicted to your videos.
    I was doing figure skating for years until I had serious problems on my back. It was my passion, I practiced it more than 11 hours a week. Well after stopping it at 15 years old, I gained a lot of weight, and during all this years I never totally lost it back. I did around million diet, tried many physical activities but I was never satisfied. Two months ago I found one of your video, and you totally killed my arms. Firstable I felt frustrated, cause I was so much stronger before, and after I thought “ok, this is a good challenge”. Thank you to motivated me again. I lost the motivation of killing myself when I stop skating, and thanks to you I get it back. For me it is so meaningful.

    Thanks beautiful Cassey!! Continue killing us please. (and sorry for my bad english)

    ps: I did an article about your videos on my blog, if u like to see it…but it is in French ahah

  298. Rebecca B says:

    Hi Cassey! Just wondering if you could recommend a(some) good book(s) about Pilates, in order to learn more about it. If I keep on going, this will become much more than a hobby!

    Thank you,

    Hey Cassey! I watch bubzbeauty and that’s where I met you and your website. I was amazed of this awesome website. I have a question, how do you lose the fat on your cheeks. Do you have a video that you suggest? Please email me and answer. Thanking going to be in 7th grade and I want to lose at least five pounds. I also want to look slimmer and get a smaller face. Bye! Thanks.

  300. Sara Meehan says:

    Hey Cassie! Im Sara I’m 15 and I want to tell you about my fitness life so far I know. About two years ago I caught myself overweight weighing 160 pounds. I’m 5’8 and that’s not too bad but I got bullied and I was very insecure. I later became a vegetarian not mostly for the weight loss but in some part. I’ve been playing volleyball for about 10 years and I love it but I was thinking about quoting this year because I felt I wasn’t good enough but then I realized the whole part of playing a sport is not to quit and work harder! By the end of freshman year I lost 30 pounds finishing 2 seasons of volleyball (club and school team which I loved both and was even on a higher team than most other freshman)!! But this summer I feel like I’m gaining my weight back I’m not playing volleyball because season is over and I’ve been watching all your videos and do them when I’m watching tv, bored and have nothing to do or when I feel like I’m gaining weight and need to get in shape I love all of the videos but there is one thing that you don’t have being a vegitarian is difficult espessialy when you are in school and during the summer when you find yourself eating a lot of junk so I was wondering if on any possible free time (I hope that’s okay to ask) you could make a cool healthy diet plan for vegitarians to lose a few extra fat and pounds and maybe a volleyball conditioning workout video to help with vertical jumps and that kinds of stuff (I’m a hitter) I hope you are reading this and understand volleyball is my life I don’t want to not make the team and I haven’t played at all this summer Im gaining weight which is fat not muscle weight and I don’t want to go back to the old me please help you are an inspireing and amazing person and thank you for everything you already do for me!!
    Xoxo Sara (:
    Ps sorry this is so long when I wright I sometimes can’t stop haha!

  301. I love your workouts! there simple and effective but i am 18 and a student. so during the school year i wont have much time for them cause of homework. could you possibly make a workout video that someone could do while lying on the floor doing homework??

  302. Hi
    I love your workouts! there simple and effective but i am 18 and a student. so during the school year i wont have much time for them cause of homework. could you possibly make a workout video that someone could do while lying on the floor doing homework??

  303. hey cassey,

    I have a question, I have a body ball that’s been sitting in my room forever and I want to know if you have a video where there is body involved or maybe you can make one in the future ? can you give me any tips to workout with it? also for you pop hiit moves and the end when we do the cardio blast, can we go out on a bike and ride around on a heavy speed ? maybe switch up ? is that ok ? will it be just as good as running?

  304. when you go grocery shopping, stop buying all that unhealthy packaged junk thats usually in the middle of the store! just shop the perimeter, and if you must, go to the organics section! when i have a craving, i just like to remind myself by saying “this may taste so good, but my body’s not gonna look good”, or even post a note on your fridge or pantry for a reminder to eat and stay healthy!

  305. hi cassey,

    my name is Amy, im 14 and i am trying to lose 10 lbs please help i am doing your June workout calendar …my problem is i eat clean but i eat to much and sometimes i eat lots of sugar can you please tell me how to control my self plz help

  306. I had to buy a thicker mat because I have horrible knee problems and the thinner mats just kill when I have to do anything on my knees. Amy is right though, as your get stronger you won’t feel so much pain when doing your workouts but in the end it all comes down to comfort. Yoga mats will last you a long time if you’re good to it so just like whichever one you get. Whether you get a thinner mat or a thicker mat comes down to personal preference and how much you wanna spend (the thicker mats are about $10 dollars more expensive).

    Hope this helps, and GOOD LUCK Jass

  307. Hi

    I just started following the beginner’s calendar with the aim of losing weight.
    I realize that pilates is not the only thing that’s going to get me there and I’m trying to eat healthy, but I never seem to be able to control my cravings! It worked for like 2 days, but now I’m back to my old habits of eating unhealthy whenever I feel like it.. What can I do to prevent this?? :(

  308. Hey Cassey! I hope you are doing awesome and I wan to thank you for how much effort, commitment, and passion you put to keep us al Popsters staying motivated to workout and have a healthy lifestyle! :)

    I have an important issue I want you to PLEASE help me with!
    I am a 19 year-old girl and I love to workout (train like a beast) and eat clean, as well a to look and feel good.
    I have started doing your This is my July workout calendar but I also loooove to do power yoga for AT LEAST 30 minutes. But I want to know if it is OK if I include 30 to 45 minutes of power yoga or a full hour of yoga (more relaxed than power yoga) on the days of the HIIT workouts. Like after doing the POP HIIT workouts on tuesdays and thursdays I finish up by doing yoga as well…
    Annnd… on the pilates days (mon,wed,sat, and sun) I like to jog on the treadmill for 30 minutes and then do the whole pilates routine you plan for each workout day

    Do you think it is too much? Or do you think it is okay to add 30 minutes of cardio before the pop pilates workouts and I finish my POP HIIT workouts with a yoga routine?
    I think I have a lot of energy and doing just pilates one day and just hitt on the other isn’t enough for me. But I don’t know if im pushing myself too much based on what you know about working out and fitness.

    PLEASE HELP! It would mean the world to me if you can reply this email with your comments and guidance!

    I’ve recently found out that I am a little underweight and that my BMI is under the recommended average for someone my age and height (5 feet 2 inches tall) who weights 94.7 lb. I’ve starting to go to a nutritionist for guidance on how to eat better and more to gain weight so that I can have a healthy weight but I dont want to stop working out as I like to usually work out… HARD! jaja

    THANK YOU, PLEASE HELP ME AND I LOVE YOU! XOXO
    Camila, Popster from Mexico! :)

  309. Kimberly says:

    You should do a pop pilates song challenge that is a Fall Out Boy song.
    I think you should do a total body workout with the song The Phoenix or Light ‘Em Up.

  310. I use just the regular thickness of yoga mat and I use mine at home as well. My tailbone literally sticks out (I swear its like I have a tail, lol) so I can injure myself very easily if not careful. My mat works perfectly! (sometimes if i’m in a half boat pose/table top I will fold the mat in just a little to give it some extra cushion) And Jass as you grow stronger, your lower back will be able to support you more and hopefully won’t hurt as much or none at all!

    Hope this helped :)

  311. Hi!

    I was wondering if anyone can give me tips on buying a yoga mat!! I would only use it at home to do Cassey’s workouts! I have a weak lower back so I’m assuming I need something thicker?

  312. elizabeth says:

    OH GREAT! I found it!

  313. elizabeth says:

    Hello, I am new to this and still dont quite know my way around this i printed the calendar and it says *new workout* how do i know which it is? or what it is called so i can find it?. If anyone can clarify I really appreciate it.

  314. ooh!!! You should do a legs challenge to OOH LA LA by Britney Spears!!
    You can call it ooh la la legs!!

  315. Dear Cassey,
    Let me tell you before I discovered your blog I was completely lost in the fitness world: I had always been an active kid but exercising was not exactly my forte.. I always struggled with staying motivated; i remember one day I was surfing youtube and found an insane ab workout and decided to try it out. Let me tell you my muscles worked in ways I never knew they could:) and that was the beginning of my blogilates obsession. Your workout calendars are amaze-balls and after one month of dedication, I can already see the changes. Anywho I just wanted to write this cause I wanted to give you a big virtual THANK YOU❤ keep making videos girl, cause you’re changing lives. And who knows, you could change the world :) wishing you the best❤
    Lots of love for CHI-TOWN (aka Chicago) ❤❤❤❤
    P.S. follow your dreams-the sky is the limit!

  316. Hi, I don’t usually ask questions because I just figure it out on my own but I would like your opinion. I have been trying to increase my pelvic floor strength by doing squats so have been doing your call me maybe workout along with my usual 1 hour x 5 a week and have discovered the my butt looks awesome. Better then ever before and I have never neglected my butt in workouts. Which leads to my question. The challenges are obviously more intense but are they more beneficial in your opinion?
    Many thanks,
    Bex

  317. Hi there :)

    So I’m starting the 90 day challenge and for one of the meals, Tilapia is for meal 6 and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get my hands on any as of right now. I was wondering if there’s a substitute meat I can use instead…xD

    Thank you :)

  318. Hello!
    I love your videos, Cassey! I have a question for you, though. I am almost sixteen and I have very muscular legs. That is to say, my quads are bulging with muscle, but the backs of my legs are….not. I run track and play volleyball at my high school, and I am not a bad athlete, which is why I am so self-conscious about the patch of cellulite on the back of one of my legs. The spot is about in the middle of the back of my thigh. I have tried doing glute workouts to try and target the area, but that just gave me a firmer booty. Do you have any advice on getting rid of cellulite? I am young, and most other girls my age don’t have this problem. I would really appreciate your advice!

  319. Hey Cassey,

    I work on a ship (joho joho a sailors life for me) and I would like to stay in super shape, there is a gym, but there is no internet on board. Do you have images, such as the on pinterest infamous victoria secret abs exercises, available?

  320. i am the biggest fan, i try to do atleast one workout each day,i find it hard to find exercising fun, and more of it being a chore, but since i found your videos on youtube i have enjoyed exercising and i can alreay see the difference! also you have videos that main on a certain part o your body that has really helped me. i would love to get one of your dvds, so i will have to ask for it on my birthday:) thankyou for making all your videos, they are great! also everytime i do your video drive by for inner thighs, my legs seem to make a noise like they lodge everytime i part my legs is that bad?:) thanks

  321. Hey Cassey
    I love to watch your videos! They are so fun and they really motivate me!
    That is why i signed up to your website :) But i have a problem. I have got the same email from you 16 times. I have tried to unsubscribe about 5 times and it doesn’t work! They just keep coming :(
    Please help me to stop it cause it is really annoying. I still want to get the emails i just really don’t want the same one again and again and again! :(
    I am a big fan so please help me :)

  322. Hey Cassey, I am from Mexico and I love your workouts, they can do miracles :) I almost do them every day and you inspire me to keep going. I have a question, do you think it’s ok if I do cardio 5 times a week and then a move on to your workouts for about 30 to 40 minutes an I finish with about 30 to 60 minutes of power yoga? Or should I do about 30 to 45 minutes of cardio and pilates for a full hour on day and on the other i do my cardio and a full hour o yoga. Your advice would be very helpfull. Sometimes I fell that if I don´t do cardio on a workout day and finish with yoga my workout is not complete. Thank you for everything you are awesome!

  323. Arianna says:

    Instead of eating fatty, greasy, or salty foods like most of us women like to do on our time of the month try being healthy for that 3 days-week.
    Do: take your vitamins(avocados, egg yolk, potatoes, bananas, oatmeal, grapefruit, squash)
    Don’t: Skip water(to help get rid of bloating)
    Do: Indulge in dark chocolate(it will soothe cravings and boost your mood)
    Don’t: Have caffeine. Put that Starbuck’s down! (this reduces bloating and help calm your angry tummy)Instead have a all fruit smoothie or vegetable drink.
    Do: Have fruit, veggies, whole grains, kale, broccoli, collard greens, and yogurt.
    Working out will also help release those feel good beta-endorphins or “human morphine” to help fight your Dysmenorrhea (period pains) A brisk walk, bike ride, swim, hike for 30 minutes three times during your period week should help tremendously! A good hot bath or a heating pad will also relax your contracting muscles and make you feel loads better.

  324. Arianna says:

    I’d warm up before the workout for 5 minutes doing light jogging, grapevine, high knees, lunges, high kicks, etc. and then doing a few minutes of light stretching in the areas you need stretched. After doing the light warm up though your body should be much more flexible and it should become easier to do the workouts. After a period of time the stretches will become easier.
    Hope that helps! :)

  325. Hey Sarah :)
    I am not sure, really, but personally I reckon that you should just eat heathier things than cola and sweets, do Cassie’s execises and be active. Of course, I know nothing about your medical condicion but, for example, I often eat rye pancakes, whole grain bread, meat, pasta, rice and other high-carb meals. I mean, I eat thatever I want (usually I want quite heathy meals :)) in normal portions, do Cassie’s exercises, often go jogging and try to be more active and I am losing my weight. (I started this lifestyle a few weeks ago and I have already lost 4 kg (You are from Europe! It is so nice to write in normal unit of measurement :D))

    Greetings from Lithuania! :)

  326. Hi Cassey,

    I’m a fencer and my entire right side (thigh, butt, bicep, shoulder, etc) is waaay more muscular than my left. Any ideas for how to even out my body?

    PS can you play fall out boy’s new album, save rock and roll, in one of your videos?

  327. Hey Cassey (Or anyone who wants to answer this question)

    I do your workouts, but should I stretch before? Because I usually just jump in an can’t seem to do it as you do cause my body won’t stretch far enough!;( but answers?

  328. Hey Cassey
    I’am now 47 and I’am – not happy with my belly – I get 21 years ago a girl and 20 years ago a boy (first child was a C-Section). I’m not fat or chubby but I have a athletic figure – normaly it is not hard for me to get muskles only on my belly. – I go to dance lessons five times a week (Zumba 3 times, Nicadance and Total Body workout). This year I also get my Licence to give “Nicadance” lessons. I This summer I will go into a dance camp at the 14th of July 2013 in Spain and it would be so great to be proud on my belly and to wear tops instead of shirts! I also would be so happy to love my belly instead to think about how to hide it…. :-(
    I’am a big fan from you following since a few month but now, since yesterday I also get your newsletter!
    I would be so happy if you could help me. Best wishes from Switzerland…

  329. HOW DO YOU STRIVE THROUGH PMS AND YOUR PERIOD???

    Every month mine kills my good workout strech and I become a bloated sloth with
    mass amounts of emotion and binge choclate like a monster/beast UGH!

    I eat fairly well until the dreaded time of the month so any advice on how to power through it will greatly help!

  330. The #JuneonFire calendar is for anyone who wants to try it, whether they’re in the Dietbet or not, and there’s no set calendar for Dietbet members. Good luck!x x x

  331. Lauren,
    For muscle soreness try soaking in the bathtub with epsom salts.

  332. Heyy Cassey.
    I really really really want to try that dietbet thingy that you are doing during June, but the fact is, I can’t afford it, nor would my parents be OK with it. So, I’m just wondering: Is the June calendar the calendar for those who are doing the Dietbet challenge, or do they follow some other plan? Please please please respond SOMEBODY because I’m desperate to try this and FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY get into halfway-decent shape.
    Thanks <3

  333. hey cassey! just starting out, and wondering what you do for muscle soreness?

  334. Esther G says:

    Hey Cassey!!!

    I love all of your videos and the cute clothes. I really want to buy one of your shirts but I prefer having tops with sleeves. Any chance you can make some of the designs as a t-shirt?

    Thanks!!!!

  335. Hey Cassey!
    i log my food and lately ive been eating more calories than usual. i track it online so it tells me the amount of fat, carbs, protein, and etc i eat. i know i can burn off the extra calories but what happens to the amount of fat, carbs, protein, etc? because im eating more than i intended to but i workout longer to makeup for it so.. which is more important for weightloss? the number of calories i ate at the end of the day? or the amount of carbs i eat? ive been told by many i should decrease my carbs to about 150g but for the past couple days its gone to 200-230g. so which matters more, calories, carbs, or both?

  336. Hi Cassey,
    I wanted to know around what time should your last meal be? I usually have my last meal at 8pm. Is that too late??
    Thank you for being such an inspirational person, I committed to your 90 day challenge and doing your exercises everyday! I hope I can be toned like you one day. :))
    Thanks for all your help. Hope to hear from you soon.
    Jas :)

  337. Hi Cassey! I loooooove your blog! I would love it if you could maybe, possibly, draw up a eating and workout schedule for me. My matric-farewell dance is coming closer and closer (15 september 2013) and I really want to do some work on my thighs, bum and tummy – especially my inner thight (for you.. the gap :)..) .. I would love it if you could help me!

    Please and thank you!
    love xx

  338. Hey Cassey! I just started watching your videos, and I was wondering whether there is an exact route that a total beginner should follow? And can anyone give me any tips on how to do crunches/sit ups/roll ups? I can’t do any of them for my life! My neck and back ends up hurting, and I can’t even get my shoulder blades to lift off the floor. This really frustrates me and discourages me from finishing the workout video :/ Anyhoo! Any tip would be welcome :) Thanks!! xx

  339. Hi Cassey!

    Great workout videos! You are the only trainer that makes me look forward to working out! You are such an inspiration; I especially love your posts on body image. Please continue to inspire and motivate people, especially girls.

    I can now see the difference in my body. like Damn! this is how pilates works!

    Love you girl and you rock!

  340. I try to do exactly what the calendar says unless there is something that I am not able to fitness level wise…… However I wanted to do a workout outside one day and there was a broom workout video so I just swapped it out with another video …..
    The calendar is basically a guide and to motivate those of us who have trouble putting a fitness routine together …….. Most of the videos are YouTube ad if they are on here they can be hard to get to quickly sometimes. However there are times I can’t fid videos on YouTube so I search time Pinterest they are all there posted by someone! :) hope this helps :)

  341. Hey all!

    I’m very new here just discovered blogilates on pinterest actually. I was wondering if someone else who is also new could tell me what exactly theyre doing to start out? Are you doing exactly what the calendar says, or are you kind of mixing and matching what you’re comfortable with? Also, are the videos soley on youtube or are they on this website as well? I really hope to hear back from someone! Thanks so much and good luck to everyone!!

  342. Cassey,
    I’ve only started doing your workouts, but you have been a great factor in boosting my self esteem. When I push to my limits, a rush of pure joy just makes me feel more confident, pretty, and definitively SORE. But when I get the rush, I want to push to my limits again! Thank you so much!!!.
    P.S.
    Even my friends are asking “Have you lost weight?” ^_^
    P.P.S
    I didn’t know I could do one legged burpees!!! (100 Burpee Burnout video)

  343. Hi Cassey,

    I just turned 25 2 days ago, and I’ve decided that this year, I am going to get much healthier. I recently started running with my husband, and it’s been great. Of course, I do your exercise on the side and results started to show. I am extremely grateful for the inspiration you give all of us.

    As I get more addicted to your exercises, I find myself wanting to do more in a day. However, as a full-time staff, doing desk work all day, I only have limited time to get to it. So, I was wondering if you can come up with some small-load exercise (perhaps for specific parts, thighs, arms, etc,) you can do in your office? maybe with a chair? I know it contradicts with the whole idea of doing exercise, but I am being greedy because I believe you can help us, ladies!

    Much love<3

  344. Hey Cassey!

    So I have a question for you or maybe a topic of a future blog. I am loving your videos! I have been sticking to the May calendar and I am trying to eat healthier and keep track of my calories. So far it is working! Over the past few weeks I can already see improvements in my body AND my strength while doing your videos! I am loving it!

    My question for you is, how low a calorie diet is too low and how fast is too fast to lose weight? I really don’t think I am having an issue with this, but I just want to make sure I am losing weight safely and will be able to keep it off! I have been told if your calories go too low you will slow your metabolism and if you lose weight too quickly you will gain it back.

    I was hoping you could shed some light on this topic!! and I think it would be a good educational topic!

    Thanks so much!
    <3 Katie

  345. Hello! :D I’m Amber, and I’ve been watching your videos for just over a year now. I didn’t get into them right away, but recently I’ve decided I want to be a pilates teacher like you are. You motivate and inspire me, and I was wondering if you could help me to become a pilates teacher. What sort of classes did you take for this? Schools? How long did it take about to start and finish schooling for being a teacher? I just want to say you did such an amazing job with getting to where you are! I’m happy for you :) Keep it up, you’re definatly my favorite teacher! :D

  346. The Bikini Blaster Series would be great for getting ready for summer!

  348. Hi Cassie,
    I need some help. I would like to follow your dietplans but I can’t follow a diet without any carbs because of a medical condition called porphyria. A high-carbohydrate diet is really recommended for me. So for the moment, cola en sweets are my best friends, but my hips don’t realy like then! :)

    Is there a way to eat healthy and clean when being on an high-carb diet?

    Greetings from Belgium!

  349. Hey, Cassey!

    I did the May 2nd Calender workout (for the abs/arms), and lot of the workout videos involved laying back and then lifting up the shoulder/head. I followed it at first but then after a while my neck really started to hurt so I just laid down flat. But the sides of my neck still hurt :( Is there any way to make the pain go away?

    Other than that, I love your workout videos a lot.
    Thank you!

  350. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest
    in its niche. Amazing blog!

  351. Hey, can someone help me: i’m doing your workout everyday and i’m walking like 1h an half by two days, I feel that my muscles are developping but I have more fat than ever!!

    SOMEONE HELP ME PLEAAAAASEEE

  352. Hello. Will there be a May workout calendar?

  353. Hey Cassey

    LOVE YOU! *Wanted to get the love out first*. I have HIT the infamous PLATEU. I have lost over 20lbs and I have about 10 lbs to go. But for the last MONTH, nothing has moved. And I have to admit, my diet has started to become slightly less cleaner (aka Ive been eating more carbs, but still every 2-3 hours and loads of protein). Is there any way you can vegetarian-ify the 8 week bikini challenge diet, like what can I sub the tuna and the chicken for

    OI…HOW to overcome the plateau when you are eating clean and often and working out already 5-6 times a week getting in the cardio and the weight training?

    Thank you and *hug!*

  356. Hey there cassey,
    i absolutely looove ur vids recipes… ur workouts are not only intense but really really fun!!! :]
    Now unfortunately for eating clean that is a hassle in my house because i live with my stepdads relatives and their way of healthy is frying everything or overseasoning stuff…. now my mom has diabetes she can reverse it only if she changes her diet and loses 10-15 lbs also im scared bout my lil bro and i also getting diabetes as well because it runs in our side of the family.i have tried eating healthy but unfortunately tend to binge on my sweet every now and then. So my question is how can we change our diet and not have the need to binge?

  357. Hey Jane!
    Stop doing anything plank for at least a week and give your wrist some time to relax and heal!
    Believe me, I went through the same thing, when I first started working out, and it lead to me not being able to work, type, eat, anything with that hand! It was really, really bad!!!
    So please give your wrist some time and when the pain goes away ease into it slowly again (I do planks and stuff on my fists, whenever possible now).
    You don’t want to get where I was and be forced to pause anything wrist related for over half a year!

    Also: There are some really good wrist relaxing/strenghthening exercises on youtube, too. Try them! :-)

    Hope you feel better soon!

  358. Hey Cassey!
    I’m from Germany and I simply ADORE your videos :D You really know how to make me workout! I follow your workout calender and I love it, but for a week I’ve had a really bad pain in my right wrist and I just can’t do any exercises in the plank Position. I try to do these moves on my elbows, but most just don’t work as well that way :(:(:(
    Any advice? :)
    Loooove,
    Jane :D

  359. On your workout calendar, there are 4 videos. Should I do them in a row? Like, Monday, all 4 in a row? And, is it better to do them one right after the other? Thanks!

  360. Helloo caasey i love your videos and you have the best workouts ever! But i have a problem :(
    Whenever i try to stick to a clean diet i always binge inbetween wihch makes it very hard for me to loose weight. i really try hard to do everything so i can avoid binging but i just feel hopeless -.-

  361. Hey Cassey:)
    i am from New Jersey and summer is comming up and i’ve been trying to get rid of my stomach fat. do you have any suggestion workouts i can do to get rid of it? I am a big fan of you and your workouts!! thank you!:)

  362. Hi, Cassey!

    I would say I am fairy athletic and I exercise frequently (with your videos and cardio) and my abs have a defined outline, but they stick out! Do you have any suggestions on how to get my already defined abs flatter?

    I’m on day 3 of April and I’m already feeling better about myself!
    Carli

  363. Hey Cassey!

    I absolutely love your videos! They are so much fun to watch and are also a great motivation to workout!
    I have a question (and to be honest, I have no clue where to ask them :\) about morning workouts. I’m a college student who, unfortunately, have 9AM classes. However, before going to these classes, I want to do a quick morning workout to spark me up for classes! Any advices?

    Thanks (:

    Dear Cassey

    I am following you since about a year. And am so thankful for you working out and posting your really helpful and high quality muscle trainings. Beside you strengthened my body you always also make me smile – your videos are so cheerful!

    Now: I am a (nearly professional) Marathon Runner. About a half a year ago I had great pain in my foot. The doctor said, I should built up muscles in my feet and also calves. Beside that I should do something against knock knees… Well: This wasn’t that easy. Calves training I managed to do.
    But straightening the knock knees seems impossible, unfortunately. As I know, that many girls are struggling with that problem (not the boys – they have their soccer training): Would you perhaps once be able organising and posting a

    VIDEO against KNOCK KNEES?

    I would love you (in fact I do that already – at least your smile). :)

    Greetings and thank you once more for all your work!

  367. Hello Cassey, Hello from Dominican Republic. I’ve been doing your videos for a while now. But I haven’t seen a video directly directed to cellulite. That’s my biggest problem right now.Thighs basically. I’d really love if you took time to do a video specially dedicated to that. Or maybe, if not, at leat tell me which of your videos are perfect to my problem, which I know you have. Thanks so much, I hope you read this. Love your job, very well done!
    I have several names at the time of contacting you, and i’m leaving the same message each time. TY.

  368. Hi Cassey,
    I’m at university and I was wondering if you could do some healthy meals that can be made using only a microwave?
    Thanks <3

  369. I’m pretty sure Cassey mentioned it in her FAQ

    basically: eat clean, and work out lol

    there are ~creams that my friends use, but Cassey says she doesn’t believe in them really. (i’ve never tried any)

  370. hi Cassey. I’m wondering if you could tell us how you edit your videos? it would mean a lot since i want to start up my own YouTube channel :) i love you channel so much. thank you for the inspiration, i’m a big fan and hopefully one day, i could do something like you. thanks x

    So today was my cardio day, and I usually do your videos literally like every day, but today I wanted to mix it up so I did this 55 minutes Jillian Michael’s Banish Fat Boost Metabolism workout that I’ve always been insanely terrified of trying….

    I for real only took ONE 10 second break the whole time, and when I finished I was so stinkin proud of myself I can’t even put it into words! :D

    Anyway, I know it wasn’t one of your workouts but I wanted you to know because I never could have done that if I wasn’t where your videos and help has gotten me. So thank you SO much Cassey, <333

  373. please can someone tell me why my password doesnt work for the march calendar!?? i put in the password from my email, and click submit, and nothing happens! ahhh :o -lacey

  374. Try the 90 Day Complete Workout and Meal Plan, I’ve heard its helped a lot of people and it has a lot of options in terms of substitutions. You can find it under the “meal plans” tab at the top of the page. :)

  375. Hello :3 I believe you just have to follow the workouts listed for the day; for the vids where Cassey says repeat 4x, that is when you are doing the video alone and not following the calendar. ^ ^ You can just try looking for her vids on her channel, or on her other channel Blogilates TV. It’s just there :3 There is also now a prom dress workout, and there are workouts for the upper body (check out her playlists). Hope that helps!

  376. i did not get the password for the march calender.

  377. Hi i just wanted to thank you for doing these amazing videos. I ran cross country this fall and when the season ended i was have a really hard time staying toned ,when i found your videos they were perfect for me. i can run and get the cardio in and then do a video or to and i get an awsome work out.they are just the right amount of dificulty for me and they are quick which is really nice too.

    Thanks and keep the videos coming I love them !!!!

  378. Hi, im a 13 year old aussie girl. We have an arobics sport group running at our highschool. We have about 13 people in our group. we do lots of different things, but the main stuff we do are your blogalates videos, we LOVE them. And this is just a funny story that happened in our last lesson. We where doing the call me maybe squat challenge, and we where up to the first set of pulses and when we started to hold, i fell over because my legs here hurting so much, then when i got back up, they where so exaughsted that i collaped again onto a table XD Anyway we think your awesome and we love the videos, and where always hurting the next day. We want to do a dance for our variety night in term 3, and i was wondering if you could give us some ideas in your next video pease please PLEASE!!!!!!! :) :D C:

  379. I’ve noticed that some videos will not display on certain youtube apps, like the one on my xbox 360. Is that a weird glitch anyone knows how to get around? I’m really confused because it is only an issue with a few videos, namely Call me maybe squats, gangnam style cardio, one more night cardio… but i can find them on my computer. So weird!

  380. Hey!! I love your workouts and the recipes!

    Im a med student in Dominica and Im having two problem. One is time because I study more than I do anything else and different ingredients for recipes is hard to get here. Could you help with a diet and workout out plan? Thanks so much!!

  381. that’s a great idea!

  382. Hey!

    I got a question: could you make an extra calender for beginners? I doesn’t have to change every month just some sort of starter calender, because, to be honest, I’m at the moment not good enough doing all the stuff on the calenders and it’s really disappointing and demotivating because I’m a person who hates seeing an uncompleted list! I tried but my body isn’t enough in form to manage with it.
    I think it would help a lot of people if we’d have some ‘easier’ starter programm so we could go on with the normal calenders later on.

    xoxo
    Alex

  383. For whatever reason the one day a week that I take off from exercising I never can seem to control my bad cravings and snacking. Maybe I just feel less motivated and energized by my workout. Do you think that it’s just better that I don’t take a day off or do you think its important to have a rest day even though I have a tougher time eating? Thanks!
    Love you Love your videos, Love, Love, Love so muchh Love!!

  384. Hi Cassey,

    I was wondering if you could do a meal plan for college students? Something easy to make, with snacks easy to take around to classes, and something that’s low budget? I’m in college and just can’t figure out how to do your meal plans without using a lot of money and how to carry lunch and snacks with me to class. I’d really appreciate your help !

    Thank you !

  385. I want to say Thank you for the great workout DVD. It really kicks my butt. I also have a question…..I am looking to tone, streghten my body and, loss some weight, should I also be following your workout calendar? And one of your meal plans? I am just starting my workout / deit, and not sure were to start. Does anyone have suggestions?
    Thank you.

  386. cassey i really want to lose fat on my thighs but i don’t want to do to workouts that increase my thigh muscle because it will make them bigger. i just want to make my thighs smaller.. do you have any videos that you can suggest? PLEASE HELP

  387. Hey guys

    Do somebody know what program Cassey use to make ex. FELFABFEB Workout Calendar? I really want to make my own eating and workout calendar, so i’m wondering – do anybody know where i can make on online? It would be nice if somebody know something free! :)

    Sophie :)

  388. cassey, i can’t find one recipe i’m looking for :/ it’s a cheesecake and one slice has almost 1000 calories… i really want to try that one lol

  389. Couple questions, just started working out with you and I found these things a little unclear!!

    Following the calendar, do I run through each video only ONE time? On some of the videos the description says to repeat 4x etc?!

    I’ve had some issues finding videos using the names listed on the calendar, YouTube searching some, googling some, and finding some links on tumblr, I think it would be really helpful if you have links on your website for each days workouts!

    One last thing, I find it really helpful when you describe the breathing as you’re doing each move, I find myself concentrating on my form and holding my breath! So when you say to inhale or exhale its a really good reminder!

    Please do an upper back, armpit flab and chest workout! Anything that is accentuated in a strapless wedding dress ……. I really like the videos with dance music, I know you love Taylor but it would be awesome for some more variety!

    You are in incredible shape and so strong! Im also following your meal plan, I can’t wait to see my results in a few months (just in time for my wedding) Thanks so much, you are great!

  390. I love your videos !! and i love your website. it’s such a big improvement and such a big help. you’re one of the people that inspire me.

  391. Hey Cassey!
    I need some help. I’ve been on crutches for the past 6 weeks and will be in a walking boot for the next month. After that i am not allowed to do any running, jumping, or anything else that will put serious strain on my foot/ankle area for another 6-8 months. I do a lot of strength training with my upper body and eat well, but beyond that i don’t know what else i can do to stay in shape and not gain back the 20lbs i lost in the past 6 months from the intensity of the sport i play. Any advice you could give me would be awesome!
    Thanks so much for your help:)
    Becca M.

  392. Cassey,
    Every morning i wake up at 5 and do 1 hour of your strength workouts before school. (The youtube videos) I usually do half an hour of abs + half an hour of glutes, legs, or upper body. After that, i usually drink a protein shake with spinach. I do not eat anything before the workout. Does this sound healthy? Also, After school I do YMCA classes (1-2hrs of cardio every night). I eat clean for every single meal and do cardio 6 times a week. Will this help me burn fat and tone up my body? PLEASE RESPOND. By the way, i am a 15 year old girl and i weigh about 120lbs. Thank you so much!!!!

  393. I have the flu atm so I can’t really do any of the workouts because they’re too strenuous and they would wear out my body! I was wondering if you could come up with any simple stretches or workouts that won’t strain the body so that even when we’re sick, we wouldn’t go completely out of shape? I just really hate not being able to stay fit so I was hoping something could be done about it!
    Thank you! :)

  394. how do you get thin and tone thigh. I’ve been working out at the gym almost every day, but my thighs are getting bigger and I’m starting to not fit in my jeans. I understand that muscle weighs more but I wanna slimmer toned thighs.

  395. Hi Cassey, I’ve noticed that the same thing seems to be happening with some of the videos…they won’t load or play in Safari (when I tried in Google Chrome they worked fine) just to let you know!
    You’re awesome I love you!

  396. I had the same issue some of them just didn’t seem to load, I have a mac and was using Safari I tried to watch them in Google Chrome and they worked fine. Maybe it’s just a browser compatibility thing.

  397. Hey hon! Cassey’s workout are hard no doubt! But they’re hard because they’re encouraging us to push ourselves, our minds, and our bodies- train insane or remain the same! She doesn’t expect us to keep up with her all the time, we just need to try our best and push ourselves- and if our best is only half the moves, then so be it! In the next workout you’ll be stronger and capable of finishing even more moves. And with your asthma, I’m no doctor, but have you talked to your doctor? Is your asthma chronic or exercise-induced? Maybe you could take preventative medication before your workout or right when you begin to wheeze. And for now, go a little slower paced with your workouts- your lungs will strengthen over time! :)

  398. ViktoriaLily says:

    I signed up but didnt get the password for your new calender :(

  399. Tammy Ruth says:

    I am having trouble viewing most of your videos on my computer, although I was able to do the beginner ab video? Just wondering why the other videos are not working? Any suggestions?

    Thanks Cassey

  400. Hi Cassey
    Lately i have been following your workout calender very religiously. But always after the cardio day, my blood pressure goes very down and leaves me feeling sick and very low in energy. I would really appreciate it if you could give me some tips regarding my problem.
    Thank you and lots of love

  401. Hi Cassey,
    I just wanted to second the request from Serena on the 26th ofJanuary , ’13 : I would really really appreciate any advice you could give on how much time to take to heal a hurt muscle, ligament, or tendon. I have damaged my Sartorius muscle through over use. I want to stop resting and start moving!

    Thank you for the great workouts and the all-important moral boosting !

  402. Hi Cassey!

    I was wondering if you could do a post about recovering from a pulled muscle? I pulled a back muscle lifting weights at the gym (ouch) and now I’m not sure how long I should wait before I begin exercising again or how to begin without risking pulling it again.

    Thanks!xoxo

  403. Hi Cassey!
    I’ve been doing your workouts for a while now and I love them but they’re very difficult for me to do. Most of the time I can’t do half the moves you include in your videos because I don’t have the pre-existing strength to do so. I also have a hard time doing the cardio videos because I suffer from asthma. It upsets me because I can’t get the full benefit of the work outs. I would really appreciate it if you could make more videos for poeple like me.

    Thank you! :)

  404. I have been following you for the past couple of months and LOVE what you do. I was wondering why I am not able to pull up and watch your videos on Blogilates.com anymore? It was always simple to go to the workout type and find the video to follow. Now, or at least on my computer, the page I need, bombshell but for example, won’t play. I am able to find them on your youtube channel but the layout on Blogilates.com made it simple and in a way more enjoyable. I will do what I need to do to keep up with the calendar but would love to be able to get them on Blogilates.com. Thank you for what you do!

  405. you should really do a belly fat blaster workout, ive lost weight everywhere else but my stomach. please put up a tummy fat blaster video!! :) thankssss Cassey

  406. Hi Cassey! I’ve been looking around at your website for shopping all workout clothing, and I was wondering when you’ll be putting out more yoga pants and shorts?! I like how all of them look but you’re out of all bottoms right now, tear ;(

  407. Hi Cassey! I figured out how to subscribe to your channel. I absolutely love your you tube channel. Now I can find all the videos on my Janewary calendar easier. I must say your workouts are Craaazzy! But I’m hanging in there!

    Hi Cassey! (:

    I’ve found this incredible machine in our Uni gym, it’s a technogym Cardio Wave… not sure if you have it or not in your gym but I was wondering if there was any chance of guidance as to a workout that would be good cardio :)

    thaaaanks

    beastin’ for a healthy body, not skinny (:

  409. Hi Cassey,
    Just wanted to say thank you so much for posting your videos. You’ve helped me get back in shape and I find myself more and more addicted to your workouts! I have spread word of you to all of my friends and family, and have converted a few skeptics to the wonders of pilates! I have seen positive results from your intense workouts not only in terms of having a fitter physique, but mentally and spiritually I feel more positive and at peace with myself and my life. Thank you for being a constant presence albeit via youtube and your website.
    Faithfully yours,
    Meg

  410. Hi Cassey, I’ve been following your workouts for a few years now and love them. I want to try the treadmill workout but all of the gyms that I have tried in Rome (lived there for a few years now) only let you have 30 mins on the treadmill! Could you please please pleeeease post a killer interval workout that will get me results in just half an hour?!

    Thankyou so much! xxx

  418. Hi Cassey,

    I just found out that I am pregnant!!! I want to eat healthy and not gain a bunch of extra baby weight. What kind of foods would you recommend that I should eat. Any good ideas for breakfast. I am thinking I should eat multiple little meals all day. Which foods would keep me fuller longer?

    Thanks for your help,
    Karen

    p.s I can’t wait to use your DVD :)

  419. You should try and do a workout for a really long plane ride. im going on one in march and the plane ride is 24 hours long!! so getting a little workout would be great!

    and call it “Pilates on a Plane”

  420. Hey Cassey! (: I love your videos they make me sweat tons! And then I go for a run. Anyway I haven’t gotten the password for the calender! :/ can you pleeeease help! :)

  421. Hi Cassie! I really enjoy your videos. Would it be possible to create another swiss ball work out? You currently have one posted and I’ve completed it a million times :)
    Thanks and happy holidays!

  422. Hey Cassey,
    Last winter I fractured my tailbone snowboarding and still effects me to this day, my physical therapist told me that since I fractured it, I need to be especially careful because my tailbone can easily bend back to where it was when I had fractured it. This Fall semester I was enrolled in a pilates course and that is where I was introduced to your videos, which I quickly fell in love with, but then the tailbone pain came back from doing so many sitting exercises…back to the PT I went. Luckily it was a easy fix, after my pilates course ended last week I have been doing your videos everyday since by only doing the moves that do not effect or hurt my tailbone. I have done your serious standing pilates video numerous times and I would love if you could make another similar by targeting the abs and legs. Sorry for writing novel….Thanks for your time.

    Emily B.

  423. could you please do a workout challenge to rock me by one direction

  424. You should try and do a workout for a really long plane ride. im going on one in march and the plane ride is 24 hours long!! so getting a little workout would be great!

  427. Cassey,
    I just wanted to stop and say thank you for all your hard work. You put in so much effort and seriously you changed my life with a fun way to work out and motivation to go along with it. Thanks for all you do!

  428. Cassey, I just want to say that I have never hated someone and loved someone so much at the same time haha. you completely kick my ass with every video, but they’re amazing and i’m totally seeing results only two weeks in. thank you thank you thank you :)

    xox

  431. Hi Cassey!!

    If I don’t have a treadmill for doing the cardio workouts can I instead run or do you have others videos that I can do instead?
    Thanks!

  432. Cassy, I recently found your vids on YouTube, and now your site. You’re awesome!

    Four weeks ago I started a journey to losing weight, feeling good, and getting toned. I decided to do the 3-day Military diet to push the weight loss and to exercise daily as much as I could. (I’m a homemaker/wife; no kids yet). I started at 196# (not my heaviest, but I don’t like the number either – pants were getting tight). I’m very densly built and even at that weight looked ‘padded’ not really heavy – my lightest ever was just before I got married at 155#.

    I feel it is more about how you look/feel than the number on the scale so I’ve been really fighting weighing myself, despite my husband’s curiosity…

    I broke down, and I weighed myself today. I’m 180#!!! That’s 16#s lost average of 4#/week. I am tickled pink. I know that my losses will improve now that I ‘ve found your vids as I can mix it up and do more to challenge/tone my body.

    I absolutely LOVE the challenge workouts as they almost ALWAYS make me sore the following day – I know that I did GOOD when I feel it the day afterwards, :).

    You are an inspiration, and I will continue to use your vids to reach and maintain my goal weight of 160# (would LOVE to get down again to 155#).

    Take care, thank you tremendously for your AWESOME vids, your lovely smile and enthusiasm during the vids. It’s contagious!

    Keep ‘em coming. PLEASE!!

    ~Nona

  434. Hi, Cassey!
    I found your videos during late summer and now I’m ready to really start going on a journey to lose weight starting December 1st. My only problem is that my family isn’t really the healthy type and my mom refuses to buy foods from those health markets because she thinks it’s too expensive. What should I do?

  435. Hi Cassey, I’m 16 years old and on a social network site I asked people if they have any online help to work out (since I can’t drive myself to a gym yet), and some girl sent me to you! I’ve been so interested in working out to your videos, they’re so aspiring and motivating the whole way through! Actually the first time I worked out to your videos, I felt muscles burning that I didn’t even know could be toned!
    But what I really wanted to get at was the fact that I am concerned with the nations health, and no better way to fix a bunch of people is to start with yourself and make an example. I’ve always been a little chubbier than what I should have been, but this past year after my grandpa passed away, I didn’t care what I ate and I went into emotionally eating; completely on accident. I’m 5’3″ so I should be like 135lbs if I remember right, but when I started eating all the time, my highest weight was 169lbs, when I KNEW I had to do something. I was disgusted at how I let myself go, and I’ve vowed to losing the weight, and getting in shape so that I feel good about myself, and not have to wear giant hoodies so that I’m not self conscious.
    Since January of this year, I started eating healthier/cleaner and I’ve gotten down to 154lbs, although that’s not where I would like to be. A big problem of mine is that I’m a picky eater, and I can’t shake that. Generally, teenagers eat junk, but I don’t want to. I want to start cleansing my body, and eating only healthy foods. I want to completely rid my body of any junk food that I eat, and start eating the way it should be. But with the peer pressure of just having junk food all around, sometimes it’s hard to say no.
    Second, I follow you on Instagram and I see the food you post, and obviously it works for you but I wouldn’t eat anything like that. I was wondering if you had alternatives for people who don’t like anything like mixing their foods? Or a few suggestions to replacing some ingredients in your recipes?
    Also, I’ve been having trouble lately with getting into working out after school. And I don’t have time in the morning to go for a quick run. I generally like to work out when nobody is home, and that’s from 3-5 now a days. I also have a yoga video from Rodney Yee, and it works well.
    I’m really just wondering if you had any advice on how to re-kickstart my life, with being healthy and being happy with who I am so I can do so many things I won’t while I’m self conscious. I would love you forever if you gave me some tips, or tricks to live a healthier lifestyle like you do. If you read this, thank you so much for taking your time out and doing so.
    <3 Ashley

  436. Jessica Dia says:

    Hello! i want to start off saying that you have been such an inspiration to me, and i mean that from the bottom of my heart. i struggle with insecurities within myself when it comes to my body. I think about it day and night and all i want is to look and feel good, and be comfortable in my own skin. My dream is in fact to be a nutritionist and personal trainer, and to make videos that inspire people just like you do. i have wanted to do this since i was 10 years old. But i struggle with depression every time i eat bad and it becomes a cycle for me and i continue to eat bad. I put myself down because i know its not what i truly want and who i truly am. I want to be an icon of health and fitness. Victoria secret models i know are not ideal especially since i am 5’1 but my dream is to be my own version of a Victoria secret model. I just want to know the right way to do it, and i know i will! i have a strong will, but this insecurity is making me so weak. I am so passionate about health its crazy. I know you may have sooo many of these e-mails to read but i pray that you respond to this one. I am someone who will truly benefit from your advice and im just looking for some help. Some help on how to overcome this cycle i keep going through. Please, please if you can give me some advice. i would truly appreciate it. Thank you cassie :)

  437. Heeeeelp cassey ive been a popstar for awhile but have always had a belly pooch. i workout daily and eat healthy but i just found out that im an emotional eater and always eat till im stuffed and then regret it afterwards. im trying to eat normal portions but its sooo hard because i get cranky and depressed when im hungry. how many small meals do you eat a day? and will i EVER be able to wear a bikini? (when im married of course, but it doesnt hurt ot start early :). im a teenager with morals). ive never worn a bikini before and really want to. ive had a belly pooch forever and im pretty sure my emotional eating is the cause but its also hereditary……help if i eat 4 fist sized meals a day and exercise for an hour with you how long will it take to get a flat stomach? abs are about 36in now….. 3 in bigger than my boobs………(im an a cup so my shirts offer me no mercy. even if i have a little pooch it shows).

    will i ever be able to wear a bikini? motivate myself to stick with my new lifestyle?

  438. Ah! You’re out of Train like a beast look like a beauty tanks! Please please please make more coral ones, my friend wants one so bad and I was going to get her one with sweatpants for her birthday.
    Thanks!!! :)

  439. Oh hi, Cassey! I just want to say that you´re the most extraordinary fit and workout instructor so far i´ve practiced with, i´ve started practicing with your workouts because of lack of new home-fitness practice variations, i´ve been searching for new ways how to train to keep in sport shape and increase my strength and power and i have to say i LOOOOVE it totally. It´s fun and i feel even after one week since starting much better again and much stronger, physically and mentally. It really helped me mainly after loosing my weight too much, what´s not so much good for figure skater, yep,this sport requires muscles, not skinny, nearly bony body, what i almost reached till i haven´t came to myself, when all my ice practices started to be weakened, i had been loosing my energy and strength all the time, shitty me, eating even less than half portion of food. Somehow i went stupid, but it´s okay now…. i hope so, ahahah. One thing i know that´s for sure, that i´ll deffinitelly continue working out with you, because i´ve already told you so, how much i like it, you encourage me, everytime, to play again and again the videos, making series, repeate and have fun while sweating and creating better and better body!!!! I´m looking forward on every upcomming and very creative workout!!! thank you again! Mashka

    Hey Cassey,
    When I was around 15 years old I started dieting and doing cardio with my mom and losing weight. I lost too much, (I was never anorexic or bulimic though) and I lost my period for about an entire year… 3 pounds heavier and lots of prayers later I got my period back again. Just recently, halfway through my 20th year I started gaining weight. No change in diet, increase in exercise, I went from 114 lbs to 123 lbs very quickly. I was upset about it because even though I was more toned and everyone said I looked waaaaay better I am a little obsessed about my weight and worried about being fat. So, I decided to try to lose just 4 lbs in sweaty sept. I dieted, but really only lost about 1lbs and that was when I was sick for a week. Ugh. Then October rolls around and my period has gone missing again. Why is this happening to me? I was at 110-114 for SO long, and then I shoot up to 123 and lose my period after only losing ONE stinkin’ pound. By looking at pics on the Internet I would say that my body fat % is around 20-22% I work out hard with you 4-6 times a week and no, I do not eat completely clean, but I do not overeat either. Did I cut my calories too low and that’s why my body refused to let go of weight? I guess with tons of working out 1500 calls isn’t very much. Any thoughts? For reference I am 5’5.5″ 123lbs 36-28-36 I have a short torso so no matter how skinny I get my waist never gets smaller than 27″. Poor me. Well, I love ya. Respond if you can.

  441. Hey Cassey!
    Love your workouts and they’re killer! However, I’ve noticed more lately that when I’m working on the ab videos, all I feel is my legs getting worked. It’s so frustrating because I feel like my legs are getting so overworked because of it. Do you know what I could do to try to fix it? Thanks so much! :)

  442. Hi, Cassey!
    How are you?
    I was wondering if there was any way I could get the password for the bikini meal plan. I really need it? What do I have to do to get it?
    Thank you so much for being so amazing, you have no idea how my life has changed for the better because of you!
    With TONS of love and admiration,
    Noa <3

  443. Hi Cassey,
    First of all I wanted to tell you that I love your attitude, your work out ( even though they’re killing me) and I’m grateful for your support. I have a question, well.. it’s more like a problem and I don’t know how to deal with it. For a long time I had been trying diets and living healthily just to loose some weight, and at the beginning it was ok, I’ve lost few kilos, but then I’ve started to working out harder, basically I was doing a lot of cardio, I was running for an hour or so… but then because of my school the thing that it’s getting darker very quickly I stopped doing that and I started to do your workout more often. The thing is that I’ve gained weight, few kilos and I weight now same as I used before I was dieting. I’ve got a feeling that I’ve hit the plateau and I’m trying to convince myself that it’s because my muscles. But I’m feeling like I’ve got a fat again, and I feel horrible because of that. I know that I need to do more cardio to burn that fat and then pilates to reveal muscles and tone up my body, I dunno if it’s working out on me. I haven’t change my diet, I’m trying to eat clean so I don’t know what I’m doing wrong ( I’ve been training for over a month now – there should be some results, don’t you think?).I love you Cassey! :)

  444. If I am sore from a previous workout a day ago, should I continue working out the following day and just ignore my soreness or should I just wait until I can move well?

  445. Hey Cassey!
    I started watching your videos just a few days ago and now I can’t stop! I love them! You are so inspirational and makes me want to start working out with you! I printed out your calender and am going to begin right away! I’m really going for a toned body like yours, but just have to shed a little fat first with your insane cardio videos. More cardio videos please!

  446. Hey Cassey,
    I’m in my first trimester of being pregnant and i really want to continue to work out and stay in shape but i contanstantly feeel like crap! I start to do one of your videos and get half way through and half to stop. I would love a laid back workout maybe? So i’m still doing something at least! I would love to here what you think! Please give me some advice thanks Cassey! PS. your the only pilates/ yoga person on youtube i can find that doesn’t drive me crazy! Your awesome!!!! <3

  447. Hey, Cassey
    I’m a mom of two. I have some unwanted belly fat from having kids, I’ve been having heck getting rid of it. I diet and drink water but i cant seem to get rid of it. I’m not sure how to work out. I mean do I do everything in one day, or cardio one, pilaties the next and hiit the next. How does it all work?

  448. I wouldn’t really say so, unless you’re doing them in close succession to one another. A cardiovascular exercise typically needs to raise the heart rate for a period of time.

  449. Hi! Everyday I do 200 situps, 100 squats, 140 side toe touches, 120 second wallsit, and 100 jumping jacks (but not all together, I do them whenever I feel like it inbetween the day). And I was wondering, does this count as cardio, and if so, can I do this instead of my daily cardio?

  450. Hi Cassey! I was wondering if you could do a work out video to really tone up that little bit of flab under the biceps. It’s where you lift your arm, and it jiggles, it’s just so annoying for everybody, I guess. I don’t know if there is already a video for it, I’ve looked, but I couldn’t find any, and I was hoping maybe you could find some time to make one! Thank you! :)

  451. Good for you making excellent habits at a young age and using exercise to feel good! What an inspiration!

  452. hello everyone im 12 years old and i love cassies vedios so please keep moving and excesice. I love you cassie and please reply

  453. hello everyone im gesell and im 12 years old im not overweight but i was feeling a little bit low on excercise so i decided to try these vedios and they definetly worked for me i love cassies high energy and motivation to get you moving and i always sweat with her vedios. So ladies if im 12 and i can do it whatever age you are you can do it too but to tell you the truth im a true popster! Please send me any replys you have and work hard popsters

  454. Hey cassey, I want to thank you for the work out videos you have been posting, they keep me motivated. I am a very thin person, I can eat alot and not gain a pound. I don’t do cardio, but I do exercises to build some body mass in my lower and upper body. I was wondering how often I should do strength exercises that will not make me lose weight, or will not make me too bulky.

  455. Hi Cassey! Would it be possible for you to do a workout with some of the upbeat Glee music? I always have it on for my cardio workouts, and it would be great to have a Pilates workout set to Glee!
    Thanks!

  456. You are definitely not too fat because you don’t have a thigh gap! That’s ridiculous! I don’t think you have to be a specific height to get one. If you really want to get one you should check out her Bikini Blaster series! The thigh/legs workout would probably help you out best.

  457. Hi Cassie,

    I would like to purchase a blogilates booty shorts? Please advice how I can order it and when will they be available. Thanks.

    Hi Cassie~~ I’ve been doing your leg workouts… I was wondering… will I have muscles or will i get slimmer thighs! Thanks so much

  459. Jessica Dia says:

    Hey Cassey, i just wanna say that you have been my inspiration since the second i found out about your blog. Your videos are the most motivating things i have ever seen in my life. Considering my dream is to do what you are doing. I was overweight as a kid and i guess i just have a complex from it and right not its been a little rough. I have this confidence issue and im always constantly searching for the answers to solve it because the only thing that makes me feel strong and happy is being healthy and excercising. Latley its been having the opposite affect on me. I’ve lost motivation to workout and i’ve gotten pretty depressed everytime i eat something bad. Then i keep going downhill until i gget so depressed i dont want to do anything. My dream in life is to be a nutrionist and personal trainer. I am 16 and i have wanted to be this since i was 9 years old. I’ve just been struggling with it. You are exactly the way i want to be. Your so happy and confident and full of life. You set an example for others to follow and thats how i want to be. I want to influence people in health and make a difference. I want to wear cute fitness clothes. i LOVE that lifestyle of eating strict and working out and getting abs. i just dont know how to stick to it without the fear that it will be dangerous to go to low carb or ect..If you could helpe me out with a plan that could help me lose fat that would be awesome. im thinking about trying your 8 week plan. thanks for all you’ve done to make a differnce in my life and other people’s lives im sure! best wishes to you :)

    Dear Cassie,

    I made the transition to begin eating clean a few weeks ago, and that was pretty difficult/has been quite a process. But now, my palette has changed so that even a banana tastes super sweet, and I don’t need to put any honey in my oatmeal for me to enjoy it. Then, after my friend introduced me to the Paleo diet, I have been sticking to this form of healthy eating for the past week.

    I want to stick to the Paleo diet or clean eating (and thus including grains and dairy) long-term as I focus on getting healthier and stronger, but I’m not sure which one is “better” for one’s health. And I’m not sure whether being on a Paleo diet would restrict me too much from enjoying the company of others in a situation where we’re eating…

    Also as an Asian-American, I can’t imagine telling my mom that I’m not eating rice any more for the rest of my life, even brown rice…

    Might you have any helpful thoughts or suggestions to my approach in changing my diet for long-term health and fitness?

    Thanks so much.

  461. Hey Cassey,

    I stumbled across your videos on youtube whilst looking for workouts the other day and I fell in love with them! I tried two for the first time this morning and I am hooked, hooked on them and your website! I watched the video you did you Eating Clean, I too have Tosca’s Recharged book and it is amazing! Watching your videos has given me the boost of energy I needed to get my butt moving again! Tell you they may be short videos but man can I feel the burn!! Thanks for providing such a wonderful selection I cannot begin to say just how much I appreciate that!

    Lisa

  462. Dear Cassey,
    For your high-protein bikini competition diet, what do you eat on your rest days? Do you eat strictly protein on your rest days, too?

    Good luck with the competition, you look great!!! <33

    Hi, Cassie :)
    Love your workouts, I do them almost every day!
    Anyway, the email-thing didn’t work (an error-message came up ;s)
    So..
    I run on the treadmill (20min) 4 times a week, and I do pilates, but I never get a defined thigh gap :( If I don’thave a thigh gap, does that mean I’m fat? Or am I too short to get one? (I’m 5’2 and 103-104 pounds)
    Hope you answer me :)

    – your biggest fan from Norway ^^

  464. have a goal in mind and want it badly enough. u’ll figure out a way to be motivated.

  465. Dear Cassey,

    A few weeks ago I discovered your videos on youtube and your really cool website. I love reading your blogs, and I absolutely admire your strength and lifestyle! I really want to start doing your workouts, but.. yeah, there’s a but.. I feel like I don’t have the time!
    I wake up every morning at 5.30, go to work and get home around 6.30. By then, I’m totally exhausted from traveling and working (I have to travel 2 hours to get to work, and then 2 more to get home), and I often don’t have the energy to start up my computer, change into workout clothes en get started. I just want to watch tv, take a shower and go to bed early.
    Can you give me some advice on how to get myself energized and motivated to start working out?
    Love you! x

  466. Hi Cassey! I just wanted to thank you for what you do! I’ve been doing Pilates, Yoga, and dancing for my whole life, and am always looking to mix things up and challenge myself with my workouts. Finding fitness/nutrition information on the internet can be overwhelming, as I’m sure you know. I recently stumbled upon your blog and videos and I am HOOKED on POP Pilates! Your workouts have helped me supplement my dance classes and your nutrition guides have been just the thing I’ve needed to properly support the amount of physical activity I’ve been taking on. Thank you so much for sharing your love of fitness and healthy lifestyle so openly and with such enthusiasm. You have found a life-long fan in me!

  467. Hi, I’m extremely, I mean EXTREMELY confused about the whole burn more calories than you eat thing. My bmr is 1288, and my amr is 1370. You said we should have a deficit of 500. or something like that, right? So should I be eating 1288 and then trying to burn 500 a day at the gym? I’m very lost. Or should I be eating only 870 and having the 500 already gone….

  468. HI,

    love your videos and meal plans, but I’m struggling with carbs, I’ve been all over the internet trying to figure out what a good daily carb intake is for losing weight. Do you have any recomendations?

  469. woo hooooo!

    Love your work

  470. Continue to do the movements with bent knees. You’ll get stronger! I promise.

  471. Charmell says:

    Hi Cassey! I love your youtube vids! I have been blessed with a lot of booty and I really can’t press my lower back into the mat. What should I do? Also I can’t balance on my sit bones and hold my legs up? Is that normal or do I just need to continue to strengthen my core?
    Thank you! Congrats on your new body :D

    (P.S. I searched the FAQs but apparently my situation is…unique)

  472. yes please come! and yes it’s open to everyone!

  473. it’s wordpress but i started on tumblr!

  474. Hello! You are adorable! Thank you for sharing all that you do! You are such an inspiration to me. Now to the nitty gritty cause I know you a busy bee! I too, am a fitness enthusiast and have my own Zumba and PT business going. Please can you give me any advice as to how or who does your blog/website? Like is it Tumblr? HELP! I think it’s fun and creative, and I just want to pick your brain! ha ha ha! If you ever have time, or are in the LA area- PLEASE come to my Zumba class! I would love to meet you and have fun dancing! I hope to hear back from you about how you do your website, and how to get my business going as successfully as yours is!

  475. Hi,

    A good female friend of mine has introduced me to your blogilates (mainly for your meal plans/ideas).

    I noticed that you hold classes.

    I’m new to pilates but I do not know if your class (at Union Sport Center on 24th April) are only for women or open to both sexes?

    If it is open to both sexes, could I come along and try your class once?

    Many thanks,

  476. in 2 weeks my love!

  477. Hi Cassey!

    I was just wondering when your Blogilates Booty Shorts would be available?

    I absolutely adore them and can’t wait to get a pair!

  478. Hey Cassey!
    I LOVE your workout videos and I was wondering if you could help me get ready for my PROM by doing a video :D. My prom dress is floor length, off the shoulder, with some back showing and a plunging neckline. Can you help me with making my shoulders/back and arms look great, my waist look tiny, and my butt perky and big so my legs look longer? I would really appreciate it if you could make a workout for prom! Thanks Cassey!

  479. Hi Cassey, has been an ardent fan of you for years and 2 questions here:

    1. Do u mind to do a video for preventing or removing varicose veins and cellulite? Perhaps sth related to pilates, exercises or a how to video? (I’ve posted this several times, but it didn’t get any responses)

    2. Is there a way to get flat abs without those bulging muscles? After doing your pilates video, it indubitably helped me toned up my abs, but I noticed there are ” sinking holes ” on my abs, which I guess must be the muscles. Is there anyway where I can get flat abs without those muscles like Nicole Scherzinger?

    Thankkk yoouu <3 and thanks for the giveaways this week!! We <3 uuuuuu

  480. Hello Cassey,
    My name is Itzel I’m living in Paris, I saw your videos in youtube from Pilates and I try to do it everyday I’m very happy because you make me love pilates, I just want to say thank you very much because I think that the people that watch your blog start love sport!

  481. hmm i will have to make a chest vid for sure!

  482. Wondering if you have any great chest excersices for those of us who chose breast feeding. LOL. I could use a great workout just to shape that part of me back up.

    Love your workouts. You are incredibly motivational. You have inspired me and really encouraged me to change my lifestyly.

  483. Hi Cassey!

    Amazingly I am in the exact same situation as Kara (age, weight, amount of weight I want to lose, etc.), so I’m interested in hearing your response to this particular question. Ever since college I have been struggling to lose the same 15-20 lbs. I used to be 107-110 and now I am around 123 ish. I know this is still healthy for my height, but if I follow your 90 day plan, what kind of results can I expect? Is there anything else I should do? I love your videos and how motivational you are. I am very excited to see what the next few months have in store for me. Thanks!

    ~Emily

  484. Hey Cassey! :)

    Love Blogilates so far and just had an idea. It would be amazing if there was a specific place for people to submit songs they think would be cool to work out to. People would get their wishes and you’d have an endless supply of music inspiration!

    As for my own request, ever since the Glee episode featuring Run the World by Beyonce (and the awesome choreography they did) I’ve been desperate for a workout to that song… hoping it will appear on Blogilates one day. :D

    Aaaaanyway, keep it up! Love your work.

  485. Oops I just emailed you about a Skype event but didn’t realize you wanted a live one!!! OK will you email me again how many people you think will be coming etc? Let’s talk more.

  486. I emailed you but no reply.. I want you to come to my college to host a pop-pilates event! Please check your email from me as I would really appreciate you coming!

  487. Cassey,
    I just found your wonderful videos on you tube the other day on a desperate quest to find some workouts to help shed extra fat. I am 24 yrs old, 5’2” and 124 lbs, I like to be around 105. I eat about a 1000 cals a day. I have just started your beginner videos paired with the cardio videos once in the morning and then once in the evening along with your advice to eat clean. I am getting married in march of 2012 and so that about 4 1/2 months. Will the above routine show me results by then? if so will they be significant or just minimal? I look forward to your response.
    I am so glad I found your videos your attitude makes them fun to watch and motivates me to keep going!
    thanks!
    KARA :)
