Let’s Workout!


  1. Just finished the beginners calendar yesterday and started the first of the Sweatember calendar today and my god this was the first time I was literally dripping sweat! I had droplets on my mat that how hard you worked me Cassey!! I still got to build my upper body cos I am useless at planking! I still have a hate for burped but I can see some improvement.. Thanks Cassey the beginners one was the first routine I stuck with for more than 20 days and I hope it will be the same with this one! Sweaty times ahead ^___^

  2. How amazing are these workout :) so much sweat. so much intensity. so much fun!

  3. I feel soooo bad because each time I workout during one hour, especially if it’s intensively, I end up being really demotivated at the end and on the next day :( I feel like it takes so much time that I don’t even wanna go “beast mode” at the end, I don’t make things well, and on the next day I’m too lazy to do this for one hour again… :( :( Am I the only one ?

  4. Starting out a couple days late and having to take mini breaks within each video. I hope i can get back into shape and start loving my body again. Been feeling like i have been gaining a lot of weight the past couple of weeks.

  5. The YouTube files are not loaded upon clicking the link. I’ve to go to YouTube and search for those.

    I started day 1 a day late but better late than never!!! I don’t think I have ever sweat so much!! I went from the beginners calendar [skipped the last few days D:] to this sweatember!!

  7. So. Much. Sweat!

  8. I am a day behind, so this was my first workout of September! Holy canoli. I enjoyed this a lot because of Cassey’s enthusiasm. she’s bossy but in a cute way haha. I hope I stick with it. :)

  9. Loved this workout! Strong start to this Sweatember and Dietbet!!

  10. I love love loved today’s workout! I was sweating so much after the Heart Throbber! I have to admit I dropped a couple of times during Playa del Plank, but I’ll get there eventually. Thanks Cassie! <3

  11. First Cassey video ever and it kicked my butt but I’m proud to say I made it to the end of all the videos! One thing for sure though, all my junk food is not worth getting my butt handed to me in these workout sessions and thats a motivator in itself. Time to start cleaning out the kitchen.

  12. I made it….I almost puked but I made it.

    Holy bejeezus.

    I feel like gumby.

  13. This workout was awesome, but since I’m not in shape I couldn’t really do it ALL, but I did most of it ;) Usually when I’m not able to do some exercises I replace them and it feels soo good

  14. Well I just finished day one of Sweatember! (I didn’t have internet all yesterday.. boo :/) Coming right off the beginner calender it definitely seemed much more challenging. Although my shoulders started to really hurt and wrists, it seemed like every video had a plank in it.. maybe I just don’t have great shoulder strength. Nevertheless still excited to work my way through! The beginner calender was one of the first workout plans I actually stuck with (granted I had a week or so lazy period) but I still finished!! I already eat pretty clean thanks to my dietitian mother but I’m looking to tone up and have more confidence by feeling all over healthy. Thanks for the inspiration Cassey!

  15. yay I finished!!! I did day one on monday cuz sunday is my day off!
    but this was an amazing workout thank you Cassey!!! :) lookking forward to all my Septmeber workout!!! :)

  16. Day 1 done! Was tough and the last video required a few more mini breaks (have been away for a month without internet and even though i worked out – it just wasn’t the same without Cassey’s daily workouts!). Despite the exhaustion I’m glad I did the ballet inspired workout at the end – feeling good!

  17. Woohoo! I’m a day late but I am committed to completing this Calendar! I was not able to finish all of the workouts but it’s a start! Here’s to an awesome sweatember!!

  18. I am super dying!
    Thanks and greetings from Poland, Cassie!

  19. Finished my beginner calendar on Friday. During rest days- 15 min stretching and today a real challenge- Sweatember Calendar. Not sure I am ready though, I need some breaks from time to time and tones of water :) Cassey I just want to thank you for being so supportive and at the same time demanding- I literally feel I am disappointing you and myself whenever I feel too lazy to work out :)

  20. Love the workout. Had to bail part way through the second to last video, because I skipped the last couple weeks of August due to not having internet and party planning for my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. Plank is still kicking my butt. I promised myself I would stick to working out for September and eating cleaner. Great start to the month!! I am bit sad that I can’t due the dietbet, but I am living off of charity until the start of college in two weeks. Maybe next time. I had a great time working out with you today, Cassie! See ya tomorrow/ when I wake up later today!! Love from Washington!!!! <3

  21. This was my first time finishing all the workouts for one day!!!

  22. Day 1 down, I rest a lot in the plank but I finish it, I only give up with the knee razies in the last one, I can’t stand my knees another second, sweating a lot…

  23. great! :) now I need a shower…

  24. Doing this in intervals really helps. I was doing this while I did my AP Gove. notes. I did the whole thing!! Yay! This is actually a first for me but I am glad I did it. I cannot wait for the rest of Sweatember!! :)

  25. It’s gonna be a really sweaty sweatember! lol

  26. I just couldn’t finish this today. So disappointed in myself. It’s been a really bad couple of days recently and I just can’t find the strength and motivation to make myself workout. I only did 2 videos today, I also skipped a couple workout days last week. Hoping I can get out of my hole of sadness soon :/

    • Everyone has their off days! It’s okay :) Today is a new week. I know you can do it. Sending motivation and hugs your way today!

  27. first 3 vids + insanity pylometric cardio circuit! My goal to do them all plus my insanity!

  28. I’m at the day 26 of the beginner calendar and I didn’t want to miss the Sweatember so I did both day 26 and September 1st workout. Great workout, definitely felt it. Can’t wait till dietbet!

  29. This workout was an absolute KILLER!!! I am sweating like crazy but I’m motivated this time. I was all floppy by the 4th video but I made it through!!!! Day 2….. I’m ready to kick your butt!!!!!

  30. I need some advice! I’ve been working so hard for the past week and eating super clean and today I couldn’t take it anymore and had a binge! I feel so bad and so disappointed in myself. Will this ruin my week’s efforts? Please help!

    • I think that you have to enjoy yourself. With moderation of course. I don’t think it hurts if you eat something bad once in a while.

    • I don’t think 1 day will ruin your efforts. Just keep working out and eating clean and you’ll get there!

    • One bad meal wont make you fat just like one good meal wont make you skinny :) When I have a binge I just think of this quote!

    • Hi Karina,

      I’m not sure if you were looking for advice from a fellow blogilates member on here or not, but I just thought I’d share….No! This will not ruin your week’s efforts. What probably happened is that your body just had a relapse. It went into shock when it realized that it may not be getting the same foods that you have been so used to eating anymore, and that probably triggered a binge. But, in my opinion, coming from personal experience, it is best to not beat yourself up over it. As you see on Cassey’s workout calendars, she even allows for one “YOLO” day a week. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean binge on whatever you want, however, it is there for you to allow yourself one special treat a week. That way you don’t end up binging in the long run. Just get back on top of your game tomorrow, and you will see that everything will be fine. No worries :)

    • You’ve been working so hard! Good job! :D so reward yourself by keeping to that one YOLO meal :) Don’t discredit yourself too much. Eventually, you’ll train yourself to eat clean because of how GOOD you feel after filling your tank with clean fuel. Treat eating clean as reward for your body, and the YOLO meal as a reward for your soul. Best wishes!!!! You got this!!!!

    • A binge will not ruin your efforts! Remember that every day is a clean slate and a fresh start. The most important thing to do now is forgive yourself and move on! The worst thing you can do is think that its somehow ruined your hard work and give up all together. Everyone has bad days, and they won’t hurt you every now and then. Pick yourself up, and start again – think of it as a learning experience :)

  31. ahhhh playa del plank really killed me, but it feels sooooo good, I’m energized and ready for tomorrows workout, OMG thanks cassey. you’re the best, I’m really looking forward to seeing my results at the end of this month, it’s hard but you motivate me to keep going, I love you <3

  32. OMG! I skipped some of the exercises (not the whole video, just some parts of the last two) because I felt I was going to die.. I was about to throw up and my heart about to explode.. But I finished!! And now I feel amazing!! #Sweatember is gonna be incredible!!

  33. DONE!!!!!
    I love these workouts!!!
    Cassey I did not feel like exerciscing today…When I feel like this I start with stretching rutine of the Beach series, it makes me to get my spirit up…especially when you say “smile, smile…” and ” celebrate your life, this is amazing…” that words really makes me smile and keep happy all day long!!!

    THANK YOU….!!!

  34. Having leg day at the gym then coming come to do this was not a good idea. I am DYING. Oh well, train insane or remain the same.

  35. Man! Am I sweating? Amazing workout to start this month out.
