    This calendar has been great so far! I am almost done week three and soon to start on week 4! Learning to engage my core in the moves has really helped! I have noticed a difference so far in just doing these exercises, so I can’t wait to see the changes when I move to the regular month calendar.

  • Jeanine says:

    Ok, this time I will really do the videos instead of trying it and wondering why you keep on smiling while it is so hard

  • judy says:

    I’m ready to get in shape, tone up, get healthy, and lose some weight… gonna try Cassey’s blogilates and look for some results.

  • Judith says:

    Any gym equipment required?

  • sarahsadventuresatw says:

    I’ve been a huge fan for years, and my only frustration is that I really wish all your workouts in these caleners were printable as well, so that I could take them to the gym with me. I unfortunately cannot work out in my apartment at 5:30 am, I don’t think the neighbors would like that very much. lol

  • Ayesha Thanaz says:

    I’m in too.
    I wanna start today…got lots of time as I’m homeschooled.

  • 100155 says:

    I’m in, could you please send some encouragement to me. I’m starting on the 1 November, please do it with me. If you do it with me can you end some photos of you doing it? Thanks, Talia from Australia.

    • louisacork says:

      I am trying to do it from today too… not sure if i can do it lol

  • Ine says:

    Hello Cassey,

    I was wondering if you could help me. I have just finished (or well, tried to) day 8 of the beginner’s workout calendar. The problem is everything which involves push-ups or staying in a plank position really hurts my wrists. Since I have had multiple cysts I don’t want to pressure them to much, even more because I am overweight (that’s why I do this calendar).
    Do you have any modifications to still work that core and shoulders while warming up?

    Thank you very much and greetings from little Belgium,


    • micheliwi says:

      Hi Ine! I have issues with my wrists too and what I do is to use my fists instead, try to keep your fists straight under your elbows :) I hope it helps

    • ahechtman says:

      Same! I try to modify by going to my elbows when I can. When elbows don’t work, I make a fist instead of using a flat palm. Wish there was a better way though!

  • alaichoy says:

    Day one, done!!

  • Rachel says:

    Hi ! I am planning to start this workout tomorrow and I was wondering how effective it is for loosing weight ?

  • rubi.ah says:

    I can’t find the beginner workout videos on your youtube channel. How can I find them?

  • Traci092 says:

    Hey Cassey, where is the beginner 2.0 planner? I can’t find it on the website but it comes up if I google it separately.

  • Sid says:

    Heyy Cassey! I just wanted to ask, I read everywhere that pilates is only for muscle flexibility and toning. I really want to lose weight and get in a proper shape. However, I’m almost at the end of beginner’s calender n I’m seeing a difference in my body but not in my weight. I’m eating clean but i really want to lose my fat and weight. What should I do?

    • slarrington says:

      Excuse me for chiming in….but keep in mind – this will get your body to reshape and get leaner, stronger and muscular so your metabolism will boost. Then, the weight doesn’t matter since you’re replacing the fat with lean, strong fat burning muscle that will keep your metabolism up. Keep it up!! It’s working. Once you see a toner, leaner body, the weight doesn’t matter. It’s the body fat percentage (BMI) that you need to monitor.

  • Thais Rosa says:

    hello Cassey! I started the “new beginners calendar 2.0 for 2015” this week, and now I founded this new beginners calendar. What calendar should I follow? Thank you!

    • Lumpy says:

      There are a total of three beginners’ calendars, so why not do all of them!? ;D In all seriousness, all three are good calendars with great workouts for beginners, so I would say pick which ever one suits you best!

  • Kat says:

    I click on the title of work and nothing happens no links to the vids help pls x

  • helm says:

    the videos aren’t showing to click on anymore

  • Sue says:

    Hey Cassie, just thought I’d let you know: the link for the “Beginners Ab & Butt Workout” on the pdf is wrong. It sends you to the “Arm Flat Blaster” workout rather than the actual video.

  • sara jaber says:

    is the app of blogilates still available i lost it tried to re download at play store couldnt find it !!!

    • Ibi says:

      I had the same problem as well.

      • NessaNen says:

        The old app was removed and now she just has the new PIIT Pocket app. I read something about Cassey having issue with the developer of the old app so she got rid of it.

  • Dr Ravinjit Kaur Gill says:

    Hey Casey! I just started POP Pilates classes here in KL about a month ago. I was so intrigued in the first class that I decided to watch yout videos learn the postures and do it daily. I mixed up the beginner’s routines with more advanced routines for certain areas in the body. I have noticed significant change iny core strength and also more definitions in my arms! Thank you so much! The workouts gave me goals and inspiration when I needed it the most. I was at a very anhedonic point of my life. So discovering pop pilates and your motivation keeps me going. Keep inspiring !

  • Katharina Wohlleben says:

    yeah! just finished the calender!

  • Ishika rathi says:

    Hello…I’ve watched your videos on YouTube they’re amazing…loved them…😇

  • yohamara says:

    This will be a new beginning for me. After many years I have decided to change my lifestyle. I hope to see results. Thank you!!

  • Irina says:

    Hell yeah! Going to start tomorrow.

  • Paige says:

    Usually in her HIIT videos, she says to do it 4 times “unless you’re following the workout calendar.” I like a little more cardio to get my heart racing, so I usually do it twice, but I think you only need to do it once :)

  • Grace says:

    Hi, I’m planning to start on this program but i’m not sure that this is right for me. Currently I’m going on Pt. to strengthen my muscle nothing major but my goal is to follow through that. I’m already slim and petite. I was wondering what would be best for me. I have no background on pilates. Can you help me?

  • 0002anaiak says:

    I feel stupid…
    but are we meant to do all the workouts for one day as one whole workout or pace it out throughout the day? (if that makes sense?)
    and also, when is the best time to workout?

    • Reagan says:

      It’s best to do them all in a row. The best time to work out just depends on you. You can do it to jumpstart your day, or if you have more time and energy later in the day, you can do it then.

  • Jasmin says:

    I’m on week 4 of the beginner’s calendar and I notice that it’s still very hard for me. The hip dip is something I just can’t master, I keep falling down. It’s very frustrating. Do you have some tips?

  • rajwindersn says:

    I am so excited to start

  • Karena J. says:

    Loving this beginner’s calendar so far, however, I am really struggling with some of the exercises. I found I am really lacking flexibility for some of the moves in the 5 Ways to Sculpt Long Legs, and I couldn’t even get myself up for some of the moves in 5 Ways to Build your Core. I had to do modifications because I couldn’t get up for the boat crunches, the twisted crunches, and the single leg sit-ups. Any tips? Does this just come with time? Thanks again for posting up this awesome calendar, Cassie! ❤️

  • Lydia says:

    Thank you so much I am so excited to start

  • Payton says:

    I just finished the beginner’s calendar. Should I go straight into one of the monthly calendars, or is there something else I should do first?

    • laiba00 says:

      did u get slim down from doing beginner calender

      • Payton says:

        A bit yeah, but I’m still pretty nervous about the workouts that require a lot of muscle.

        • maiteh says:

          I did it a few years ago, went from the beginners to the monthly. It’s mostly harder because there are more workout video’s a day. So your complete workout takes longer but. I sometimes needed to skip or easy down an exercise or two because of lack of muscle or injury (like plank exercises on the wrists, I had to make fists or even go on my elbows or skip the exercis)

  • cupidsniper says:

    I am sorry to say that I really miss the old system where you had links for every day which took you to all videos of that day. That frustrated me a bit and I didn’t work out for a while now because of that. (I did sports with that old system for a year ^^”). I try to start this again, but do I have to search for every single video on youtube now or is there a faster way that I have missed?

    • Kayla says:

      You can follow her calendar she creates.

      • Orange juice says:

        Is it really simple but challenging?

    • Giasemí says:

      Hey :)
      I had the same problem but I found the trick.
      You can download the pdf and when you click on the Workout Title like in Monday on the sentence „pop Pilates for beginners: total body“ you will get to the video. The workout titles are links in the pdf file. But you can also find the old ones if you google „Blogilates beginner calendar“ if you prefer working with these.

  • shana says:

    Just completed this calendar today. Im over the moon that i did it.Thanks so much for posting. Gonna do that calandar again for July as some of the moves I still struggle with.

  • Ashley says:

    Some of the exercises, such as the leg lifts, seem to require a lot of flexibility. I know that Pilates is excellent for toning muscles and improving posture, but will it also improve my flexibility or should I do separate stretches for flexibility before the workout?

    • Katie Holt says:

      She has some videos in the beginners calendar that focus on flexibility. Flexibility is definitely a journey and takes some time to gain. Doing Pilates will help your flexibility, but I think you shouldn’t rely on the Pilates videos alone to gain the flexibility. You can work on your flexibility with some of her yoga/stretch videos, not only will you be stretching your muscles after workouts, but you’ll be working on your flexibility as well. Kind of a one two punch :)
      Happy Workouts!

    • Natalie Capra says:

      Hi there! I’ve been doing her workouts for a while now and in the beginning it was extra challenging because I wasn’t flexible at all! Doing some stretches before workouts is a great way to warm up and will make sure you don’t hurt yourself. I would recommend that you do some sort of stretches before any workout. The stretches will also help you get some flexibility, which will help your Pilates workout. Make sure not to hurt yourself and good luck!

  • Ashley D says:

  • Kaitlynn says:

    Hey Cassey! I love watching your videos and all the inspiration you give off. I feel like I am struggling more than I should though with this beginners calendar…there are some days where I can do most of the moves for the majority of the time, but other days where it’s a serious struggle. I’m not going to give up though!

  • Karuna says:

    I liked Ur videos…..I wanted to gud posture…. shoulder broad … because I my height 4’10”

  • Angela says:

    I may be missing something…. but I used to click on the beginners calendar and all the days would be there for me to click on…. and the video would come up. I can’t seem to find that anymore?
    Has something changed?

    • Megan says:

      This is a new calendar, different from her beginners 2.0. If you go to google and type in “blogilates beginner calendar” the old one shows up.

  • Tswinters says:

    I miss the calendar where you could watch the videos and comment on each day as you go. It was exciting seeing all the comments as you go

  • Kate says:

    Hey, admins :)
    Please fix this little issue: when clicking on calendar image to enlarge it – May calendar appears.
    It’s still available to download high-res by the link below, but anyway the thing with image is a bit confusing :)

  • katyblanc says:

    I can’t see the videos :(

  • diet plans says:

    it’s great blog,i really like her style, her cheerful personality.thanks for sharing your information.

  • Tonya says:

    I’ve started the 28 days for beginners. 2 weeks in & it’s great! A recent injury took m out of running so I was looking for something to stay active. Blogilates is working for me! A couple of questions how do I keep from straining my neck during the ab exercises & my wrists during the moves where your on hands & knees.

    • rhfaubion says:

      For moves when on your hands & knees you could try going on your forearms. IDK how to prevent the strained neck.

  • JoAnn says:

    I think that Cassie is the best, seen many workouts and I really like her style, her enthusiasm and cheerful personality, I look forward to my workouts with her now.

  • eldrax says:

    I was wondering if we are supposed to do the videos that are planned for each day just once or to repeat each video more times?

    • Chantal says:

      Just do each video once, if you can do them more then once you’re probably not a beginner ;-)

  • Jude says:

    Just click “download hi res cal” instead!

  • Michael says:

    Your link to the youtube channel is currently an invalid link; should be “YouTube.com/Blogilates” not “http://www.youtube.com/blogilates.com” Cheers.

  • Adom says:

    How should I deal with intense soreness after a workout? ALSO, nutrition??

  • chaviva says:

    Dear Cassey, I would like to start the Bgginers program, but the link YouTube.com/Blogilates is not working. I have print out the PDF version, but I don´t know where to find the excercises. Have a nice day. Daniela

    • Chantal says:

      In the online version of the pdf, click on the title of the workout to start the video.

  • Roziie91 says:

    Starting Monday but using next two days to psych myself up and browse all videos and blogs. Wedding is 13 weeks today and I’ve put on nearly a stone since buying my dress!! Kick butt time!

  • amber says:

    super excited for june anyone doing piit28 1.0 through 3.0 this summer and fall?

  • I cannot wait to start tonight!

  • Amy says:

    Nooo! I was working off the previous calendar and its easily accessible videos listed by Day! :(

  • Rachel says:

    Yay! This is exciting! Can’t wait to start this calendar and even meal prep for the weekly recipes :D

  • Liah says:

    Woww thank youu🌍😘💖It will really help me🙌

  • Anastasia says:

    I have done your workout videos and challenges before and I was actually planning on doing the 100 30 day squat challenge but I’m not sure if I should do the June calendar or the new beginners calendar which do you think would be best?

    • Ally says:

      It depends, If you wanna cut back down to basics the beginners might be better, If you are advanced then the June Workout Calendar might be better, Just look over the workouts and see what your ready for :D

  • Vicky says:

    Hi Cassey, thank you so much for the updated calendar! I just wanted to ask, do the videos for each day cover the warmup for the workout, or should we warm up separately before starting the workout for the day? Thank you for being such an inspiration!

  • Debbie says:

    I think this is an amazing workout schedule!! I am lookign forward to seeing the results at the end of the month! Thank you, Cassey!

  • dearcricket says:

    I am also confused on how to follow the calender. Is there a clickable version or do you just find the vids on YouTube ?

  • Teagan says:

    Thank you for the new calendar! But I was part way through the previous one :( I would love if the previous beginners calendars remained on the site.

  • Anyone in Canada and who’s IN!?

  • Steph says:

    Love the updated version! Will there be a playlist or something for all the videos? Or is there any easy way to get to the videos we need to do for each day like how the 2.0 post had each day? Also, just an FYI, but the link for your youtube says it doesn’t exist.

    • Ray says:

      I don’t know if this is what you’re asking, but the PDF version has the URL linked in each workout, so you just have to click on it and it’ll send you to the workout video.

  • Elena says:

    Super excited that there’s a new beginner’s calendar! I do wish that the other beginner calendars (1.0 & 2.0) stayed up somewhere on the site as well! It’s nice to see the progression and variation between all the calendars. I just started the 2.0 calendar 3 days ago, finishing the 1.0 that I accessed through the Blogilates app! If these other calendars are already accessible on your site, sorry, I was unable to find them!! Thank you for all your hard work. It really helps me and so many other people out.

  • Elise says:

    I LOVE doing the cardio days being PIIT workouts! It makes my mornings so much easier! I like all the workouts too but this is….amazing! Thank you for everything!

  • Amélie says:

    This is exactly what I needed to get back on track. Thanks for the update !

  • Melissa B says:

    Hey Cassey, thanks for the updated beginner’s calendar! I did your workouts quite a bit last summer but I have been unable to do much lately because I’ve been pregnant and limited by some issues. I’m due any day now and have been planning to use your beginner’s calendar as my way to get back into exercising as soon as I am cleared to start! Looking forward to getting my body back at home while baby sleeps (hopefully)! Have you ever considered doing any workouts for expectant and/or new mothers? Thanks for all you do!

  • Sarah says:

    Hi Cassey! I started my fitness journey with your beginner calendar almost 2 years ago and although i do not currently do blogilates I have lost 110 lbs since then!! I completed the beginner calendar (and thought I would for sure die every single one of those 28 days!) and then I think i followed two of the monthly calendars following that! Loved every single video because of your smiley & bubbly attitude! <3

  • Chantal says:

    Very excited that you made a new beginner’s calender Cassie! Also happy to see there are not as many repeats of the same videos every week. I was already planning to start the old beginner’s calender tomorrow, but now I can start with this one. BTW, the top link for the pdf, below the image, doesn’t actually lead to the pdf but the one in your text does.

  • This is so true, before I tried different programs but it turns out it wasn’t for me. But, by the help of some fitness experts i’ve known I am now into yoga classes. This weekly plan would be really helpful for beginners who wants to get fit and be healthy. This post deserves a thumbs up.

  • Amber says:

    I’m so excited that you made a new beginners calendar! Thank you so much, this is really motivating. ❤

  • YuKa says:

    pls, pls, pleeaaase clickable pdf? :) pleeeaase!
