Latest format added to the POP series…POP Sculpt! I decided against POP Pump in the end (sorry Cari) because it was too BODYPUMPish. You’ll need 2 sets of weights for this, a light 3-5 lb set, and a heavy 6-12 lb set. The routine is 15 in long and you should repeat it 4x!
This week I was in LA doing trunk shows at Equinox for my bags. Here’s my Beverly Bowtie gym bag on a bald lady mannequin. Sexy.
The first part of the week I was in West Hollywood and OMG can I just say that anyone who is anyone was working out here. Let’s just say that I saw JC from NSync, Taye Diggs from Private Practice, Kevin Connolly or “E” from Entourage, and my fave sighting of the day…Ana Caban from my Gaiam Pilates DVD sets.
Back when I turned 16, my friend gave me her ab video as a present and I literally did that routine a few times a week religiously. She is MY Pilates guru. I was so hesitant to come up to her and introduce myself. I didn’t want to sound like a crazy fan but I also wanted her to know how much I appreciated her influence on my journey towards becoming an instructor myself. So I took a deep breath and decided to be a normal human being. We talked and then ended up exchanging contacts! OMG. WHHHHAAAATT!!???
I asked if I could interview her for my blog and she said yes, so I hope we can get Ana over here. I know you guys would love love love to hear from someone I consider my idol in Pilates. As big as JC, Taye, and Kevin are…I was more star struck by Ana. She is a bigger celebrity to me in my universe.
LA was awesome. So warm. It was like 70/80 degrees. AH. I want to move out there soon. I miss living there. But I def don’t miss the traffic. For those of you that live in SoCal, what’s the best area to move for someone like me? Any recommendations?
Today, the clip of me on the radio was aired! Haha, it is soooo weird hearing my voice only. I feel like I sound like a small human. I don’t know, my voice is so high pitched and miniature. Haha, maybe it’s just me? The interview was hosted by Alexandra and Kymberly Williams-Evans of FunandFit.org. They are twin fitness sisters and are so funny together. My interview was on debunking Pilates myths. Have a listen and tell me what you think! Is there a future for me in radio PodCasts!!??? JUST KIDDING.

I’ve been pondering on starting another blog or YouTube channel that’s non fitness related for a few days now. It would be more on inspirational entrepreneurial stuff. There is so much that I’ve been learning as a blogger, YouTuber, and businesswoman that I want to share but I feel like it does not resonate with all of you guys so I need to direct that to a completely different place. This would allow me to just talk, vent, blah bah on tips and tricks for finding your passion, doing what you love, and starting your own business etc. I have sooooo many stories on this and I kind of want to create a video collection. I wonder what my other YouTube channel and blog should be called. CasseyHo? CasseyTalks? BlogilatesBiz?BlogilatesLife? No idea. I wanna keep it simple and open so that I can talk about anything pretty much. What do you think?
Today something crazy happened on the way to the airport that made me realize why this 2nd channel needs to happen. You will learn so much from it and why life can be so amazing. I want to vlog about it before I go to Australia next Saturday. So I will try my hardest to get the YouTube channel up. Help me come up with a name! I think that will be the hardest part.
Ahh, can’t wait to open more of myself up to you guys in a different light. Maybe my “c’mon you can do this” attitude in fitness can translate well in a type of life coaching of sorts. Not saying I am expert at all. Just saying it may help motivate you in other aspects of your life.
K, that is all! Again, 3:15am. I’ve got a class to teach in the morning so better get to bed. Love you all!
