Fitness, Food, & POP PIlates
Hi! I just did the 100 burpee burnout and I am just dead right now! I feel SO good though! Thank you :)
Hi Cassey! I decided I would do a fun workout video this morning to start my day off…. I chose this one not knowing I was going to DIE. You were right when you said it! haha. Absolutely loved it even though it was killer! I did a couple other videos as well to get in a full hour of exercise. Love love love your videos!! It was a nice change from the gym and you’re definitely a motivator! Thanks girl!
I have heard that you are not supposed to work your core everyday but you need to give it a day in between to rest. Is this true or can I do ab workouts daily? Or would that even be affective?….
Any responses would help
Is is ok if I do this morning for 30 min 5x a week? cus I don’t have much time for working out I have to go to school… Can someone give me some advice?:)
Hi Cassey and popstars, I am doing the HIT workouts and I used to not be able to do even one but now Im pushing through. Ive been doing all your pilates workouts for a couple of months now but since mixing my workouts with cardio and HIT Im seeing amazing results! My waist is toned and thin and Ive finally gotten rid of that lower belly flab. My leg cellulite is on its way out too. And those bingo wings I used to freak out about are replaced with gorgeous arm muscles.
These are great, motivating, difficult, but VERY effective workouts. Keep em´coming, Cassey!
congrats!!! i’m just starting, but do you do this for 1 hour a day for 5 days a week?
Thanks for this comment Steph! I just started doing her workouts this past week and I have a hard time getting through them! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who struggled at first. I’m going to keep at it though and hopefully see some progression.
Ive been doing 1 hour 4x a week at first but as Im getting stronger Ive increased it to 5 hours a week. I always do the hardest ones first (like the HITS ) then the easier workouts ( pilates) afterwards, and finish off with some fat-melting cardio. Each day I work a different body part (yesterday I did abs, today Im doing legs)
Hey Steph, I dont know if Ill ever get through to Cassey so I hope you dont mind me asking you. Im 16 years old and lost 75 pounds in a year, ive started doing Casseys videos because my stomach isnt toned as i thought it would be. Ive been doing her calendars for three months now and my stomach and overall body is still not toned. I see minor results but I just wanted to know do i have to do the listed videos of the day on the calendar plus more cardio or hiit to see results? Like an hour a day of the listed videos and add more hiit to them? Because im already sore with those and dont want to hurt myself. I called a trainer and he said to change workouts cuz my body is used to it but i really enjoy casseys videos, theyre free instead of insanity for 300$ im so sorry this is so long but im so confused and this has been bothering me forever! Thank you soo soo much:)
Hi Kimberly! Hopefully I can help you…
You can get ‘toned’ (i.e. lean muscle definition) from doing strength training, such as Cassey’s pilates workouts.
To get more slim so that you can see that muscle tone, you have to eliminate the fat on top of the muscle. In order to do that, you will want to use cardio (Cassey’s cardio, HIIT, plyo videos or cardio machine printables are excellent) and especially eating clean to eliminate the fat. You don’t want to go over one hour normally, you should be doing one hour 4-6 times a week (I do 5) for maximum results.
Eating clean is an incredibly important aspect as well. I.e. eating lean proteins(white fish, chicken and turkey breast), lots of vegetables, some fruits, pure whole grain starches (oats, quinoa, 1 ingredient cereals, brown rice, corn tortillas), and low fat milk products (2% plain greek yogurt, 1% milk). Above all avoiding sauces, extra oils and fats, processing, added sugars and sodium, and just added ingredients. The less ingredients, the cleaner and more pure it is, and the less it will harm your body that is fueled by natural eating.
Your food baby HIIT is crazy!! Luvd it!
the new bootccampt video is out yet everyone?
ahhh my first time doing hiits. i feel like i just ran uphill for so long. as an ex-runner sweaty makes me feel whole again!!! i think the people who live below me in my apartment complex hate me but too bad
you’re videos are so much fun :) Most YT workout videos but you’re are doable and you can feel it right away. thank you so much
I want more Pop Plyo!! You and your sister are so cute, and that workout never fails to KILL me. More please! :))
Hey Cassey (or whoever else in the forum can help me) I’m wondering how to get the most effective workout possible. I’ve been doing your perky butt n’ long and lean legs , your thong workout, cinch your waist ab work out , and the we are never ever ever getting back together arm workout (I like to do strength training the most if you can’t tell) and then jogging for an hour. For cardio should I do the HIITs? Is that more effective? or keep doing what I’m doing?
I’m also trying to tone up a bit for my friend’s wedding in 4 weeks. But mostly this is a question for working out for the long term.
I’m pretty new to working out too. I gained a lot of weight my freshman year of college. Is there any other tips you all would have?
In my experience, the HITS mixed with cardio and pilates are very effective for burning off fat because: The different strength exercises mixed with cardio will build muscle and also schock your body into losing the fat layer on those muscles, as they are very intensive and varied. Try doing your normal routine, but add 2 or 3 of Cassey´s HIT workouts( they may seem hard to do in the beginning, but your body will get stronger if you keep at it)
Also, cut alcohol and processed foods that are heavy in salt, they cause water retention, which packs on the pounds, I know when I cut drinking and ate less salt the pounds flew off.
If your looking for an overall long-term change in diet and excerise, see your doctor about it first
Hope it helps :)
Every time I hear Gangam Style I get fired up! Your video is so much fun and such a workout. I have to know, where did you get your tye-dyed yoga pants from?! Too cute!
i have a little request for a hiit video :) could you please please create a tabata-style workout, i´ve seen and tried some, but would love one, out of your point of view !!!!!
they are supposed to be the best workout to blast all that unwanted bodyFAT ;)
Hey what would be a good workout to slim down the claves? I am afriad all the calf raises and squats were you are on your toes will bulk up my calves. How do I just one them and slim them down? Thanks xxx
your best cardio vids are summer sweat fest, bikini blaster hiit and food baby. you need to make at least 3 more like those. i would totally love you forever.
you shoul totally do a workout vid to “say something” by austin mahone!!!!!
Yes yes yes yes yes yes :D
You are so adorable! I am SO glad I found you. Looking forward to trying your workouts tomorrow but really enjoyed watching a couple tonight. LOVE YOUR ENERGY!
Hey so should I end each bikini blaster routine with a HIIT workout or a Cardio?
first off i love you videos, they’re really good and everyone says
they can see the difference. Im a 114 pounds but i want to be around 104.
so can you please tell me which of your videos i should do everyday for the fastest results? how do i combine them.
Also i have been regulating food so all i can do now is exercise.
I want to be nice and slim by August. PLEASE HELP? <3
I'm 14 (: thanks <3
Do you like Tabata? Could you do a Tabata workout?
what song is this ? i love it . i really need this song for my playlist
I think it would be really awesome if you did a 90′s inspired workout, where the music is all nineties, the outfit is all nineties, and the workouts are 90′s-esque. It would be sooo awesome!
Been doing these for a week now and LUV IT!!!! Awesome Awesome work outs! Can’t for my new summ Bod! :) xxooxx
I have been looking for work outs on YouTube for awhile that would be fun and give good results. I’m so glad I found your videos, they are awesome and keep me motivated. Im 18, 5’4 and around 120 lbs and im trying to get back into shape and shape up my legs and belly for summer. With your work outs i know i can in no time and have fun doing it. You do a whole work out not just little clips where I would have to buy the rest of the video like others YouTube channels. I’m definitely going to keep watching and doing your workouts.:)
Hey Cassey! I found your workouts a long time ago and I did Pilates, but then I stopped for a while and now I want to do cardio and Pilates, (along with some butt and ab exercises) I’m 14, 5″2, around 98lbs and I don’t really want to lose weight I just want to get rid of my pot belly. Thing is, I don’t really know what routine to come up with out of your videos. ould you just give me a routine to do?
Hey Cassey, Nice to find you on YT and now reading your blog. I became interested in pilates just today looking for some ‘low impact’ exercises due to my knees. I’ve been practicing aerobics (for about 2 weeks) but at the next day I’m dead. 10 years ago I was diagnose with degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease in my knee and i had to quit all kind of sports. With years the pain got lower and I decided again to exercise but nothing… my knees ar ehurted again so here I am with Pilates and your advice if this is good training ‘low impact’ for me.
Oh! And another quick thing: Can my back get hurted with pilates? How can I avoid ‘low back’ pain?
Thanks in advance for all your help.
Even I have the same problem. I have knee pain for which I had to quit sports. But now after a few years, I want to get back into shape. I tried one week of high impact exercises, and my knee almost felt like it’d burst with pain. So, I researched a bit, and am going to start with Cassey’s routine. No. Pilates won’t cause lower back pain, nor knee pain. As a matter of fact it’ll improve posture, and the stretching will alleviate the pain!
This workout rocks! My heart rate is up, broke a sweat, and I am definitely going to feel it tomorrow! Doing this every day. Changed the burpees to mountain climbers and elbow push ups to a push up pulse.
Other than that, I LOVE THIS WORKOUT! Can’t wait to see results from making this a daily routine! Thanks Cassey!
love the food baby workout! my butt is still sore!!! Thanks!
Do you have a printable version of the 20/20 workout, so I don’t have to keep pausing the video. Thx.
love the videos, but the background on your site obscures your print & its hard to read sometimes
Hi! LOVE your shorts! i might have missed it if you posted where you got them (new to site) but can you let me know where you got them or a link to the site?
in your 20/20 workout are u suppost to take a 15 sec brake after every move when you´ve done 20 ?
If u need it, yes!
I love everything about PopPilates! I especially love that you, Cassey, post workout VIDEOS and DO THE WORKOUTS along side of us! It’s a fresh alternative to all the other printables and other videos out there where they just show snippits of the move(s). The way that you present the entire workout really makes me want to keep pushing with you! You are an inspiration, really!! You look amazing! Thank you for encouraging healthy living in all of us! It’s great to know that it can be done the right way.
Took me about half an hour. i weigh 126pds. im a skinny girl with a little pot belly haha! i want to get rid of my belly and gain more wieght on my thighs calves and buttock. i love your blog i think its amazing but idk if i can get the results i want since i dont want to lose anything but my belly please help me cassey :) that will be greatly appreciated
Holy Cow!! Just completed my first HIIT workout! My heart rate is still elevated 10 minutes later. Thanks for giving me a quick break away from the computer – one of the joys of working from home – I can sweat for 10 minutes and then get back to work! Looking forward to doing this many, many more times. So glad I found you!
soo oh em gee i just did 30min of the fairy tale workout! FEW!!!!! my swet is DRIPPPEN!!! ew rite? WRONG0!!!! thats how I kno that was a good work out!!! she did an awesome job Cassey!! i esp. loved the first move…dnt recall the name? now im bout to do a 30min workout of pilatesssss :D oober stoked!!!!
Cassey, personally I like your traditional pilates-style workouts vs. your new “plyo” workouts. Back in the day I would have thought that the harder the workout, the better I am. (“no pain, no gain”) but am more content with a more moderate routine now. Request: Could you post more stretching videos, please? Thanks, you’re great. =) Please keep up the various pilates-type workouts.
What makes a HIIT exercise a HIIT exercise? What I mean is, what makes a HIIT exercise fall into that category? Or maybe I should say what defines a HIIT exercise? Or maybe, what does a HIIT exercise compose of? IDK! I just want to know why a HIIT exercise is called a HIIT exercise! :) :) :)
Love the vids! :)
Keep Rockin’ Out!
I’m not entirely sure, but i thought it was High Intensity Interval Training? I’m sure you would have done something similar in school :)
There is no way to describe how i anjoy the exercise it was wonderful, i would like to take the 90 days plan and i will print the menu, my only concern is that i’m breast-feed my baby she is 7 month and she eating 2 meals fruit and vegetables with chicken, i don’t know what is the menu meal that i need.
I would like to tell you more, please if you can contact me back.
How long should someone with average health, but overweight, do POP Pilates, including stretching?
strive for 2-3x a week

Is this mainly for burning fat or building muscle..?
i luv this and it works so mush i can already feel my abbs getting bigger …. i think thats what ur suppost to say
No weenie high knees – LOVE it!
What cardio you will recommend to do for a person with knee injury before? I’m a little scared to do those jumps but I really want to burn some fat!
Thanks and LOVE your videos!
Swimming is fantastic!
i like doing this , bcz its superb fat burning.
New “member” saw your site a few days ago and i’ve just been exploring and i LOVE it. Something that may be easier for people to do the HITT exercises is this little timer: http://gymboss.com/ its super cheap and it works AMAZING I use it all the time! And it comes in different colors (even hot pink ;))
And i don’t know how you keep the site functional but I think if you put up the link so other followers could get it you may be able to talk to gymboss and get some money for sending people their way as a referral honestly they are an awesome little timer and one of the cheaper on the market that they are really cute :) (P.S. I know i may sound like I work for the company but I don’t I just LOVE mine :)
Cassey with a smile, me with a tear going down my face. Oh… wait. That was sweat.
I agree, Miriam!! I dont know how she keeps a smile throughout her workouts…
tip: yelling and roaring will help get you through all 4 sets
in fact, its next to necessary
Oh my! Miriam, You literally just made me LOL!
