Hello Cassey, i love you’re videos, your imput. The clothes you desing are BEAUTYFULL, i just love the colors! They are very practical either.
Ur doing great & have a nice day!
For the beginners Pilates 28 day calendar it says it’s free but I could get the app for 3.99 per month but in the app it’s asking for 8.99 what’s up with this
you cab do it through youtube for free
I have started my fitness journey in order to lose weight and become stronger and i preferred your beginner workout when it was in pdf. But thank you anyway. i love it.
Thank you for sharing this 28-Day Workout Calendar for Beginners! It has been a lifesaver. Ever since I started using it, I have seen a dramatic improvement in my fitness levels.
I love your workouts and originally got into them years ago. I completed the old beginners calendar and moved on to the regular one. I used to love it, however two years ago I went through a rough time, stopped working out, gained a reasonable amount of weight, and didn’t get back on till now.
I just started your new beginners calendar a few days ago, but I’m finding it a lot tougher than your old one for some reason. The videos felt tough for me as they seem to focus only briefly on posture and technique, and the 2nd day video included twisted side plank and other moves that were quite tough that I couldn’t do yet. There were no adjustments or other options suggested, so I finished the second day quite disheartened .
Could I please ask if to help people who are starting at a lower fitness and skill level like me, you might ever possibly consider including some of the old beginners calendar into the new one as an alternative video, or as an optional second video to complete?
Very excited for this and I love getting back into a workout daily schedule Whoohoo!
Yay! I’m doing this and I’m excited and skeptical but let’s give it a try and see how far it takes me.
would anyone recommend going on runs while doing these workouts? or would the workout itself suffice?
I think Running would be good on flexibility days!, otherwise i think running isnt rlly necessary
Congratulations on your successes. I’ve been following you on Facebook and Instagram. You are an inspiration.
I have never been in any fitness program but have always wanted to give it a try. In fact, i have a barely-used mini gym at home. I’m petite (5’3”, 50kg) except for the unwanted bulge in the middle and i feel the need to be healthier and stronger; to tone/build mass and not to let age get the best of me. Im turning 54 next month. And i will soon start “day one” of this new journey with your help.
Many thanks to you! ❤️
Hi! I’m enjoying restarting my exercise routine by doing this daily calendar. I struggle some days to do some moves and don’t have the best endurance yet. Do you recommend repeating this calendar when completed or trying something else? If so, which calendar do you recommend following this one with?
hi cassey, I hope you see this comment. I’m new to exercising habit, I’m 15 years old. I loved your 2022 Glow up sessions. my why is to achieve mental and physical strength. I’m not looking for weight loss but I do love toned body and I want to become healthy and strong. what will you advise for me?^-^
Holy crap, 1st day – 26/1/22 so proud of myself for doing that first workout since I have done barely any exercise for about 5 weeks since I’ve been on school break. Can’t wait to get happier and healthier
I’m on Day 11 of the Beginner’s Calendar! I work full time and I’m a mother of 2 (3 yr old & 5 mo old). I was struggling to do my workouts after work because I’m always super tired and busy with the kiddos. I decided to start waking up early to workout and I feel AMAZING! So excited to continue on this journey. ♥
So in days where there are 2 workouts, is it done back to back? Or one in the morning and one at night?
Hi! So I recently had Covid-19 and I was wondering whether this program would be safe to start my journey to fitness again.
Im pretty sure you can do all of these from home. Just find her Youtube video for the workout, and do it from home.
Hi! Can you tell Me the difference between your “Blogilates” app and your “BODY by Blogilates”app?
The blogilates app is no longer handled by Cassey. The Body by Blogilates app is her updated app.
I just started 10/11/2021
Day : I almost cried HAHAHAH but It was fun
Day2: the exercises with planks are killing me, but I survived
Day 3: my butt is crying brruh
I preferred it when the calendar was in pdf and I could click on the exercises that went straight to youtube. But I’m really looking forward to starting over.
I’m so excited to start the beginner’s stuff! I’ve watched your videos on and off for a couple years now, but I recently started taking pole dancing classes (fitness and fun!), and I know I need to do conditioning and strengthening exercises outside of class so I can do all the fun amazing tricks we learn! So I thought, what better way to start than with blogilates? 😀
I just saw you on Kelly and Ryan and loved your energy and strength. I am 55 and about 30 lbs over weight. I have lost and gained it all back over the last few years. I am ready to get strong and stay strong, and you have so many great programs. Can you tell me which one is the best to get to get started? (I downloaded the app) Thank you
Thank you so much for stopping by! I would recommend the Beginner’s Program to start or the Monthly calendars – all of them are great! So happy you’re here!
I just started day 1 of Ab blast Beginner and am having challanges with with Rollup using option 2 as I seem to be out of shape. I was not able to hod the form even using my legs as a way to roll up. Is there another excercise that may assist with this to gain the strength from inside w/o loosing form.
Loved you since day 1, I always loved your work out program, it’s very effective. And i truly love it whenever you talk in between workouts, encouraging us it definitely keeps me focused ans encouraged.
I have started my fitness journey with 28 days beginner workout. I have loved each and every workout plus big thanks to Cassey. My goal is to lose weight and become stronger. Should I combine these workout series with any other calendar? How should I plan it? Any suggestions?
Are the Meal Plans related also to the App?
so excited to start!!!!!
I have recently started working out . I was following you on Facebook since a long time ! and now here i am starting with my fitness journey with you 🙂
I am a bloody beginner with Fitness and I find you motivating and I want to change myself, yeah the Workouts are hard, and I feel it burn, but if I want to change, I have to start somewhere. Let’s how it will be, when I finish the beginner calendar
Thanks Cassie, I’ll get prepared for the 3rd May Challenge starting with some beginner’s e exercises!!!! I don’t need to lose weight but to tone up.
How do I get the free meal plan for the hot girl summer sculpt challenge
It’s in the PDF! https://www.blogilates.com/blog/are-you-ready-for-your-hot-girl-summer-sculpt/
what’s the password for this pdf? I’ve been looking everywhere and it said it would be in the email but it’s not.

Hi Cassey! My daughter challenged me to try your 28 day beginner’s calendar – and I did! With her help and yours, I have made it through 28 straight days of exercise – for the first time in my 55 years! Now, I need to know what to do next? Is there a Level 1 – 28 day calendar so I can keep moving my middle-aged body forward, slowly?
CONGRATS! That’s amazing! You can do the monthly calendars and adjust the videos as you need!
Hey Cassey, love your workout calendars but keep finding the jump from the beginners calendar to the monthly calendars way harder than expected due to the increase in difficulty and also the length of time – this has made me give up after a few days and not return to working out for a month or so at which point I have to do the beginners calendar again. Could you maybe put together an intermediate calendar which bridges the gap?
Something I did was work up to doing all videos. So I never committed to all the regular calendar videos at first, just did at least one and as many as I could until I got stronger over many months. But I agree an intermediate or maybe optional distinction to videos on the monthly calendar would be nice!
You are doing a great informative article! Thanks
Hi, I have just downloaden your app and signed up for the free 7 Day Trial. How/when would you incorporate runs into the weekly plan? I aim at running 3x/week and don’t know if I should combine two of your workout days to have free days for running or if I should do your videos in addition to my run on the same day? What about rest days? I am a bit unsure how to select workouts if I can’t do all of them. Thank you very much and all the best, Anja
I printed out the calendar to follow along on youtube until the casting feature on the app is fixed, please fix it soon! I’d love to use the calendar via the blogilates app!
I’m on day 11 and it’s getting haaard :c I thought it would be easy for longer. But I’m not going to give up, it helped me to go back to working out after injury and for that I am very grateful <3
You got this!!!
I live in a studio flat on the top floor and don’t have much space to work out specially doing stretches and press ups, also the floor is very sensitive and I get complaints from the neighbour downstairs, when I try to do star jumps. I used to dance and that used to help me stay fit but now that London is on a strict Lockdown, I am mostly stuck at home. Are there any exercises you can recommend to help me stay fit and lose lockdown weight.
Thank you for any recommendations.
What to do after the beginners programme? I’m currently doing the 28 days beginner course but I want to know what I should do after?
You can do any of my other challenges or the monthly calendar! 🙂 Keep it up!!!
Hi Cassey, I started the beginners calendar today. I did the first video in combination from the first video from 2018. My question is, tomorrow is beautiful butt plump, but it says only to doing if we have completed the booty lift cardio. Is this the correct beginners calendar?
Hi Mariela! Hmmmm I’m not sure I understand your question!
I just finished this calendar and I cannot believe how happy I am! Cassey is someone who actually makes me WANT to work out! Thank you so much for your positivity and encouragement (much of which I really needed). I’m so glad that Blogilates is the place I chose to start my fitness journey 🙂
Just started the 21 day challenge and loved it, Thankyou xx
If I miss a day would it be okay to do two days in one?
Decided to take on the challenge for February (the 28 days seemed like a sign)! I’m on Day 9 today, almost a third of the way there let’s gooo! Here’s my question: for the days that list two workouts, would you recommend doing them back-to-back or spaced throughout the day? Thank you! <3
Ohhh yesssss that IS a sign! I would recommend doing them back-to-back if you can so that you can get your whole workout session done! But also, you can space them if you need to.
Still loving this calendar! I am wondering if you might consider adding an additional beginners calendar at some point, but one that focuses mainly on basic foundation, core, and stretches (I’m talking basic moves like you would do in a rehabilitation center). While many of us are ready for *thi*s calendar as-is, I think many of Cassey’s viewers would appreciate a baby steps model to build confidence. I think the older videos, like stretch-specific ones and ones where she does take it super slow, would be great to use there as a calendar, even if it is only a 7-day or 2-week rehab/foundation-building type of program. The more people who are physically and mentally able to get on board at the very beginning–and eventually progress through Cassey’s harder routines–the better! Just some food for thought 🙂
I agree! 🙂
I would also love this!!!
Hi, my app has been down for two days now and I don’t know how to fix it. I’ve completely deleted it from my phone and reinstalled it but no luck. It doesn’t load. And if it does after a long time, half the screen is blank and you can’t do anything. Thanks
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for help!
hey cassey, just love your workouts!!!
but i have a question , i am underweight skinny girl , I have already started this calender but as i am underweight so is it okay to continue this or will it make me feel weak, please reply asap
Hi! I think it won’t make you weaker. It might just help gain muscle, which also means gaining weight
I have a quick question, whats the average amount of minutes I will be working out in the beginner calander?
Hey Cassey! I have been doing your beginner’s calendar since mid Nov. Just one week to go!! But my exams are starting from next week so I’ll probably join the monthly calendars from New Year. I have a really busy schedule. Doing all the video together just doesn’t fit into it no matter what I do 🙁 I just feel very sad about it! Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you Cassey!!
You are the best <3333
I just wanted to thank you Cassey. I’ve been working out with you for a couple weeks now, and I’ve already lost 3 lbs. You are so sweet, fun, and just a lovely person! Thank you for kicking off my weight loss journey.
I needed this! I eased into your monthly calendars at the start of the pandemic by starting with your old beginner’s calendar, and it made me feel so good about myself. I had to take 2 weeks off when I was moving in October, but unfortunately fell and sprained my shoulder the last night of my break. So my 2 week break has turned into a 2 month break! I look forward to being able to start this calendar to help get me back onto the monthly ones for 2021!
I’ve been a little over than my ideal weight so have been looking for exercises which melts fat and I have never exercised before. So just wanted to know if the beginner’s calendar works for melting fat?
am i the only one who feels like a lot of the videos on this calendar aren’t exactly beginner friendly ? 🙁
You got this!! I offer options in the videos too so it’s perfect for all! Remember, it’ll feel hard when you start out but be kind to yourself and give it time. You’ll be progressing in no time!
Hi! I thought there used to have a calendar for beginners with clickable links to the YouTube videos…. Is that not the case anymore? Or am I going crazy and that never was a thing? I’ve got a 2 year old and a two month old and decided I could do bits of the daily workout throughout the day to try to get back on track! Have enjoyed your workouts a lot on the past!
Not sure if you still need this, but if you just look up playlists on youtube for her calendars there are plenty out there! Hope this helped!
Hi Cassey! On my 27th day of the beginner calendar and I’m very happy with how much stronger and more motivated I feel. I’m looking at the November calendar right now and I think it’s still too difficult to do especially with the number of videos per day. What do you recommend I should do next?
Hey Cassey. Hope you are doing well. I absolutely adore you. I just recovered from covid and I am trying to get back into shape. However I am not able to do the beginners calendar also. I was able to do your monthly calendars before covid but now this also seems impossible. Hope I will get back on track. But lots of love to you.
I appreciate everything you do. I’ve been trying to get into fitness for years (including having tried following the beginner calendar a few times. However, my biggest issue was that training my core and doing the ab exercises were very painful for my back (it would bend no matter what I would do; despite following your advice). I recently found it that it may be because of tight hip flexors. Do you have any tips for loosening them up? It’s making workouts very difficult.
I absolutely love the work you have put in this.
But this calendar is making me cry.
I’m trying to get back in to working out. (I’m used to weight lifting). Some of your videos on this are feeling really good but the ones with down dog (I can’t even to one!) en the plank walk opener. I just can’t do those. I can’t touch the ground with stretched legs and they have been stiff all my life. you go way to fast for my level for those exercises and I absolutely do not know how to work on it. I feel like a failure and started crying just now. So I needed to vent here.
Don’t get me wrong, been following you for yeaaars and I love your content but even though I’m pretty fit, I never will be able to be good at tour videos. I can’t teach myself those basics.
Arms, stomach and lot of strength exercises are going great but it feels like the videos forget that some of us (or am I the only one) who just has too stiff legs to downward dog or simply touch the floor with straight legs.
Ok, done with sobbing now.
Hiiii! You got this!!! Don’t feel discouraged, take the options as you need and be kind to yourself! You don’t need to touch your toes or straighten your legs – focus more on listening to your body but maintaining good form and technique. For example, touching your toes isn’t important but stretching your hamstrings is. Does that make sense? Sending you the biggest hugs! You got it!!
Cassey, six years go I worked out with you every day for months and was in the best shape of my life and felt so happy. Fast forward to now, I’ve gained it all back, plus some, and while I still love myself inside and out, I feel the difference on days when I do work out vs. when I don’t. I’m writing this here now for accountability as I am ready to jump back in to being a beginner again and will start the calendar tomorrow morning. I can’t wait to work out again with an old friend 🙂 Thank you for everything you do Cassey!!! <3
You got this!!!
I’m about to finish this calendar and loving it so far!! Thanks Cassey! Which one should I do next?
You can do the monthly calendars!! We’re halfway through November and you can jump in anytime!!
Been following the beginners calendar for a couple months now, but still don’t feel quite ready to jump into the regular calendars just yet. I do have some knee issues which does make some of the exercises a little more difficult to do such as the lunges and sometimes the squats.
Okay, it’s time. I now finally have the right mindset to get stronger and healthier. I am ready for a challenge. This is it.
You got thisssssssss Anna!!!
Today I started day 1. Excited to start this journey.
Hi Cassey, what do you do every day for workouts and eating? Do you follow your plans or do something else?
Hi Cassey! I wanted to say thank you for this calendar so much. I’m on the 6th day and this has been the first program in years I have been able to stick to. I never pay for apps, but I got the premium subscription and love it! Something as simple as that little progress bar that says the % I have completed is such a motivator. I also love that the first week is made of relatively short videos, so I can really start small and build up, because I am so out of shape. Thank you again, and best wishes!
YAYYY so proud!!!!
Hi Casey I did October workout calendar every day and my thighs got chunky.I gain muscle easily on my thighs and I don’t like it.Wich exercise should I do to get lean muscle and slim legs? I love your chanel and exercise and want to stay and exercise with you. Lot of love 💘 😻 .
Hi. I’m a beginner and just subscribed to be a premium member. I can’t seem to find the beginner calendar anywhere on the app even though this website says it is there. What should I do?
Hiii! Email us at email@example.com and we’ll help out!
Thanks for the weight loss calendar for beginners. It’s a very beneficiary article who write daily health plan and follow their tips and thoughts
this is lovely. thank you.
The only way I can stay motivated is doing these calendar workouts – will you be making an intermediate calendar as well? I am so bad at picking single workouts, and the calendars are brilliant guides.
Might be working on one for you!! 🙂
Your channel and workouts are so motivational, I love them! Keep uploading the videos!!
Love the new beginners’ calendar! Instead of printing it, I’ve saved a virtual copy and give myself a “sticker” after each completed workout.
Thanks for everything 🙂
Just downloaded the app to try this beginner’s workout calendar and it tells me it is a Premium item and that I need to subscribe. But in this post you said it was free.
I had this same issue 🙁
Hey!! Sorry about that! The beg calendar needs the premium subscription but it’s free to follow along with the JPEG! You can choose your own adventure!!
Hi Melissa! Sorry – that was a typo. The app is free to download but the beginner’s calendar needs a premium subscription $3.99/month. The benefits of doing it in the app are super cool tho!!! But you can still do it for free following the JPEG!
Hi cassey, i m from algeria and Im 35 years Old . I m a mom of three kids and I love what you do all the time. I m always wayting for your vidéos but I can subscrib for a premium subscription I dont have the money.
I hope it will all free all the year .
Steal love you and enjoy workin out with you I just downlod your videos on my phone and do my home workout from my phone
Thank’s a lot
Hi Cassey! I love the new app, you, & your workouts. Thank you so much for helping me rediscover the strength I have within!
Just wondering how to cast the workouts from my phone to my tv to avoid the YouTube commercials? We have several streaming options on our TVs, but none seem to work.
OMG! I can’t wait till November. I am so happy and can not wait. You go Cassie!!!!!!
Hi kathy! For those of us that have been with you for years and years on end, would you create a super advanced, challenging workout calendar? I’ve been with you for like, 10 years now?!
I’ve seen you on YouTube for a couple of years, I haven’t had the courage to start till today and a least complete a challenge, I’ve always had this yo-yo relationship with working out, hopefully with the app I’ll be a bit more focused in completing a challenge and staying on track. 😊
You got this!!!
Hi Cassey, I am being working out with your videos for a few months now and I am very happy, I love your inspiration and advice. I realized I am having problems with my balance, any advice would be helpful and great. Take care !!!!
Hi, i’m just starting with this program to see how my body reacts and adapts step by step to the different type of struggles (eventhough i would like to get started immediately with the monthly workout because i like difficulty and fatigue c:). For how many months would you advise people to do this routine to grow stronger and be able to approach the monthly plans discretely? Bye Bye and thanks for all the inspiration you give everytime to light up the day!
Hey Cassey! I just discovered your Youtube channel while I was exploring your website. This looks cool and I’m super excited to get started. However, I barely have time since I’m working twice as hard to build my portfolio. Do you think there’s a plan for people like me?
Hi, i already found this channel along time ago and trying to do this, but i always giveup mid videos because its to tough :'( .
i am going to try again today so wish me luck~
Omg I really need tips on how to stay motivated! I do it 1 week then give up and then do it 2 weeks later! 😭😭 send help! (I’m going to try cutting out dairy because it makes me groggy and lazy for sure!)
It sounds silly but I made myself a workout sticker sheet, each day I workout I get to put my sticker in my planner. Working super well so far and am already over halfway through the calendar!!
Been waiting for an update on august calendar to PDF…
Okay, here we go! I’ve never been disciplined enough to work out consistently but I actually enjoy working out with your YouTube videos. So “I’m in!” with this first-timer workout schedule. I’m nervous and worried I won’t see it through but I’m setting my face towards it right now!
How do I get the 28 day summer challenge calendar? I signed up twice and I didn’t get it in my email.
Hey there Cassey! I just discovered your youtube channel and have been exploring your website. This all looks so cool and I am super excited to get started. but… I don’t have that much time at home to just exercise. I go to school, go to dance class, and come home and do homework. How am I supposed to find time to do this as well? i want to exercise more and it’s imperative that I always look my best (leotards give you no breathing room, every pound is visible.) Should I just do it on the weekends or on my days off? or should I just go on youtube and target whatever I think I need?
Hi! I have the same problem, for me I am starting with this same calendar, I like to divide up and do some workouts in the morning and some in the afternoon, this way I have split my time. If there is a workout though that I don’t really like or want to effect my body like a butt workout for example, I do skip it.So I hope this helps and good luck!
Gonna have some plans
wow this is so cool love it
Im not really a beginner, I started this program in march, and I continued with some others video etc..I decided that I wanted to go back again to this calendar. It changed my body so much. Its great i love it
Just startg week 4 of the beginner program. Loved it! What next?
love you casey! ive been doing the 7 day abs challenge and it definitely show some changes! keep on inspiring, and ive always love your content <3
FYI: The link to Day 12’s Beginners Ab and Butt Workout is wrong. Use the link for the same exercise from Day 27
Finished day one this morning. So excited to have this tool. Looking forward to day two!
Anyone starting this today?! <3
starting with these begginer workout….
Question: Should we use Coda for this beginners workout as well?
I love the workouts that u give on ur YouTube so I am excited to start this
Hello Cassey! Today is day 28 of my journey with the beginner’s calendar which means I have completed this challenge! I’m so happy at what I have accomplished because I have never completed an extended exercise challenge without missing a few days or just giving up. This calendar was hard at some points, and many times I cursed while doing an exercise or I had to pause the video to take an extra break. But, I was able to push through all the videos and I have noticed a big difference. I have gotten stronger, improved my balance, and increased my flexibility. I might not have a big difference on the scale but my body measurements are slightly smaller, except for my butt which actually grew. I’m sure if I kept to a cleaner diet I would have had better results but somehow my family started buying a cheesecake for each weekend of June to enjoy. So, thank you Cassey and I am looking forward to doing your monthly calendar for July.
OMG I am on Week 2 Day 2 and I am seriously looking forward to every day to do my workout! I am already feeling stronger ! I cannot wait for week 4 when I have completed this challenge !
Hi Casey, just want to let you know I really appreciate your workouts and resources that you have made available for free for YEARS. I’ve been following you on/off for several years but being a mom of 2 has made it hard for me to find time to exercise. But your varied workouts are so easy and convenient for me to pick up and try again. Each time I visit your site or get your emails, I am motivated to try again. A big thank you to you and your team. I hope you keep doing what you do because people like me really appreciate the help 🙂
Hey Blogilaters! I would like to ask you all, if you also have problem like me. I just finished day 3, first video and I was working out my butt. When I stood up from the matt, I got head ache, uuugh. Do you know why? Thank you and keep going!
I am a swimmer, but due to COVID I could not go to the pool for a long time now. These are actually the best workouts ever! Just finished the last day and I am in love. I tried such workoutplans from others quite often but always got a real bad back pain. Not with this one! Finally I feel fit and not just sore.
Greetings from Germany and sry if there are some mistakes as English is not my native language:)
so i finished the whole calendar and lost 10 pounds because i added a 30 min walk on every other rest day. i will try the other calendar now
Thank you for telling us about your results! I used to follow blogilates in high school and after switch schools in college I lost track of my fitness goals so I’m easing myself back in with the beginners calendar wish me luck!!
I finished the beginner’s calendar yesterday – it’s the first time I have ever finished ANY sort of challenge. It’s given me so much confidence, I didn’t realise that I’d always unconsciously thought of myself as a quitter (e.g., I’m going to drink 3litres of water a day from today, but at the back of my mind know it’d last maybe a few days at most before I gave up). Of course another natural by product of finishing the calendar is that I’m in better shape overall, but the increased confidence was the thing I was most surprised and happy with. Thank you Cassey! And to anyone else who is starting but half-heartedly thinking they’ll probably ditch like other fad diets / challenges – I believe in you! This can be the time to buck the trend!
I’m so happy for you, and I believe in you! Great job and I’m glad this helped build some of that confidence. We all deserve to feel good about ourselves and our bodies. I’m starting this as I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost a sense of wellness both physically and mentally/spiritually over the past few months and want to dedicate sometime to taking care of myself. I am so happy for you and I appreciate your encouragement, it actually means a lot. I hope you have a wonderful day and I’m wishing you the best:)
Take care, <3
OH MY GOD! I have just finished the last day of this calendar and I’m feeling great. I lost 2.6 lbs already. I’m gonna start another calendar of yours tomorrow. Thank you so much Cassey, you’re workouts are amazing.
Hi guys in day 12 the first workout is linking to a different video (arms) than the one mentioned (abs). Perhaps you want to correct the glitch? Other than this : LOVE the workouts!
I haven’t quite figured out how to fit 30 minutes of working out in my day as a mother of 3 little boys yet, but this is exactly what I was looking for otherwise. But I’m gonna see if I can figure it out because I want to do this challenge!
Very motivator and helpful Thanku so much😁😁
Hello Cassey, I just finished day 1 of the beginner calendar. I cannot wait to see how my strength and body changes throughout this month!
Hope it will strengthen my body as well as motivation

I found Blogilates back in 2012, have never been able to stick to it until now. I am almost done doing the Beginners calendar, even though I am super sore from pushing myself I am also feeling a lot stronger, plus I am almost able to keep up with Cassie. I will admit there are days I think she is absolutely nuts in some of the exercises. I also wouldn’t change a thing. Through all of this quarantine following the calendar has given me an amazing excuse to focuse on myself.
THANK YOU CASSIE!!! you are truly inspirational and I love your videos.
So I’ve been wanting to do this for so long. Sometimes I’d tried it but I never sticked to it. But now I have finished my exams and with the quarantine there’s no better thing to do than to challenge myself and get fitter. What I’m looking forward is to gain resistance and to grow stronger, and I just completed day one and I’M SO EXCITED to complete this journey :))
Let’s do this!!
finally starting over and now will go on to beginners 2.0 after this one because i am always starting over that one
Hi there… Im Rangini..
I would like to lose some weight. What would be ur recommended workout videos for beginner like me…
Cassey, I am starting week 3, and I find it hard yet it is harder to NOT do it. I love the burn and realise I am getting stronger each day. I don’t know yet if I am going to do it again next month or “upgrade “ for more results. But thanks
I did it ! My final day on the beginner s workout calendar. I am so incredibly proud of myself. Tomorrow is my rest day. I am wondering where to go from here? I could just you know do it over because it was too intense for me to actually do it fully. But I am definitely stronger nevertheless. And my arms needs it as much as my core. Well probably a second time to do all the videos for each day. Thank you sooo much
Cassie I really love your routines. I am feeling very secure of myself when I’ve started to watch your videos. I want to do something good for myself on quarantine. Greetings from Mexico.
As we are going through this Pandemic… I started to feeling stressed out until I find your channel on YouTube and last week I started the beginner calendar routine and I’m in love with POP Pilates! It makes my day, I feel much calmer and happier! Thank you so much!! Stay safe, xoxo
Hi Cassey, I started following your beginner’s calendar but had to stop for five days in between because I have serious period cramps… Is it okay to continue working out with the videos I missed or should I just skip the five days workout and continue?
Hi there! I’m on Day 18 of this calendar and I think you should continue working out with the missed videos. You don’t have to complete this calendar exactly within 28 days 🙂 I definitely am not following the schedule exactly because I take more than one rest day a week. But if you skip 5 videos, you might not be as prepared for the following week. Cassey increases the number of exercise videos each week while decreasing the stretch videos, so it gets progressively harder. You can do it!!
Cassey thank you for the workout videos. I dont enjoy the gym or working out but I tottaly enjoyed the begginers calendar. Im looking forward to keep up. Thank you!
Hey I really want to lose fat and weight and I’m finding it difficult to find a suitable calendar . Please help me out .
Hello, you can start with this beginner calendar , except if you are already strong or know the correct form of the exercices. Then her monthly calendars are good ways to continue
How many times do we do each exercise ? Do we repeat them
Thank you for this ! As someone just interested in working out I don’t know how to start but this makes it nice and easy <3 appreciate the plan
did the videos get deleted? I can’t find them even when I go to the date this calendar came out: May 2018
I’m now on day 13 and all the videos were/are still online (I search them on Youtube, but you can also find them on this website). You can just click on the title in the pdf, or look for the title on youtube 🙂
FINALLY! thank you so much!
Hi!!! Thankyou so much for your great workouts and calendar, it’s helping me aloooot. I was just confused about how much cardio I need per day along with your videos. I’m following the April calendar xxx
I would like to access the 30 days to splits calendar but can’t find it
It is in the Challenges menu at the top, under Journey to Splits
Thank you, thank you!!! ✨✨✨ Excited to start
Hi. Just a quick ?.. What if we can’t do the exercises exactly like you indicate bc we are over weight 😪 is it ok to modify until maybe we can get them just right?
Hi! I am not blogilates but I just wanted to say, that it’s okay to do as much as you can. You can replace those excercises, that you can’t do by repeating those you can do. And try problematic ones from time to time! I am proud of you and I hope you will not give up! I send love and support <3
I am so grateful!!!! This seems like the easiest thing to follow! The link to video in PDF!! I am soooo psyched to start my journey!!! Cassey, thank you!!!!!!
Thank you so much for sharing these and taking the time to put calendars and videos together! I generally dislike exercise, but a friend of mine recommended your channel to try to get into it. Now I’m kicking off week 4! Keep sharing your positivity! <3
Hey! Do you see a visible change in your body? In terms of weight or something?
I love your work out videos. I am a teacher who’s on quarantine and I am having a hard time with keeping up with my eating healthy and exercising on a daily basis. I am going to try your 28 days calendar and see if that get me back in focus.
you are THE best. My friend and I started fitness with your workouts. You know it’s not only your moves ore workouts. It’s your positivity that keeps us motivated. THANKS
First of all, thank you so much for your engaging and fun videos, your beautiful blog articles and your positivity. You are literally the only person that gets me into working out regularly and with pleasure. And believe me, I tried dozens of home workouts and gym classes here in Germany in the past. Now, I’m looking forward to your videos every day!! So thank you for that!
There is just one thing that’s annoying me. While I’ve never felt better, mentally and physically, I’ve noticed more (hormonal) acne esp. around my chin area. I’ve always struggled with mild acne but had it more or less under control the past few years. Do you have any experience regarding this issue or tips as to prevent workout related acne? Should I stick to your less intense workouts and reduce my workout timetable to every other day?
Lots of love, Emily
*Cassey, I’ve meant to write Cassey!! ❤
Hi Cassey, French fan of yours (actually living in Spain) here. I’ve been following you for years and absolutely love your videos, thank you so much for your smile and for everything you’re doing! I am now back to beginner’s calendar (life took over…but I’m trying to get back in shape). Just one thing, on week 2, day 5, the video for “Beginners Ab and Butt Workout” actually leads to the “Arm Fat Blaster” video when I click on it. Just thought I would let you know so it can be corrected. Thank you, love you! ❤️
Hi all! I am on Week 2 of the calendar and I still find it difficult to make sure that my back is pressed into the mat at all times when doing ab work – unfortunately even putting my hands under the tailbone got me feeling like I’m arching my back slightly whenever I extend my legs. Any tips? I don’t want all the work to go to waste! Sending love to you all <3
Love you Cassey❤️You inspire me a lot. Sending you lots of love from Ghana🥰🥰
I love watching your videos
Should I move onto the monthly calendars after I finish the beginner’s calendar? thanks:)
That’s what i wanted to ask too. Cassie, help out 😂
Cassey* i apologise, it was my autocorrect..
Hey..even I have the same doubt. Can I move to monthly calendar after the beginner’s calendar?
Hey there! I’ve read that some people find it necessary to repeat the beginner’s calendar one more time before they feel ready to jump into the monthly ones. I think you should give the monthly ones a try, and if it’s too challenging, repeat the beginner’s. Keep up the amazing work 🙂
Hey! So i experienced some pain in my neck which I helped by putting a neck pillow under my head and that helped to ease it. I also have a kinda weird question on the rollups. Stomach fat gets in the way a little plius lower back pain. Any alternatives i could try? I have a bar with resistance bands that go under the feet. Could this work for now? Thanks for your help. Oh wait! Do you advice on hip pain when doing leg lifts?
I am getting back into shape after giving birth to my sweet baby girl three months ago. I have completed this calendar years ago. I think it is a great place to start my postpartum workout routine.
Starting from the beginning again after stopping all exercise for a few months. Feels good to follow the plan and get back to basics day 3 complete. x
Hi, i from Egypt 🇪🇬 i’m really lucky i came through this i really love the videos and all your talks, you made so excited to do my workouts that i used to hate, I have a week left and i want to know which calendar should i go for after this one, the month’s calendar or repeat this one which one do you recommend?
I’m on day 19 and I was wondering the same thing! Some videos I still can’t finish all the way through. :/ Good luck with your journey!
I’m Nicole’s aunt. I’m here to get fit and show my support for you both.
Day 12 done. I’m having a hard time managing to do them everyday, but at least I haven’t given up! Yay. Thank you, Cassey, for creating the beginners calendar’s for us 🙂
I’m an overweight 13 year old (not self-depreciating or anything, just facts :)) I’m on day 8 and already feeling stronger and happier… thank you Cassey! xx
Good for you! I wish I started when I was 13, keep it up girl!
I have been watching your Fb story for a few months now and I thought it was time to start actually doing some of the things you do! there are no excuses that I don’t have time as with the lockdown there is plenty of time and we don’t want boredom to set in ^_^
Day 11 done! Wow, that was hard for me but I did it! Yay! Thank you, Cassey!
Saw you on TikTok and now here on your page to do the Beginner’s Calendar. No excuses now not to get in shape!! Can’t wait to get started.
YAY thanks for coming over!
Day 10 finished! I absolutely LOVED this one. All 3 videos were perfect!!!! Thank you Cassey!
Thank You so much…Is any way to send You a mail with one question about what to do after I lost waight?
Excited to try your videos, thanks!!
I hope that you can help me to lose weight
Day 9 finished, with quite a bit of dealy, but still trying!
Day 8 done! Wow, that was crazy, but I loved it! Thank you, Cassey!
Hello. Congratulations! This is a nice work. I’m from Greece and I’ve started this plan for beginners, but I don’t understand something in number 8. Could I do all choices (3 choices) or only one from three?
I’ll appreciate your answer! Thank you. (I’m sorry for my English)
You should do all three!! they are usually quicker workouts so it still amounts to roughly ~30 Min!!
hello! Congratulations!! This is nice work! I’m from Greece and I’ve started this plan for beginners, but i don’t understand number 8. Could I do all choices (3 choices) or only one from three???
I’ll appreciate your answer.. Thank you.
(sorry for my English)
you are supposed to do all 3 videos. Is that your question?
Day 6 done. It was the hardest day to convince myself, but I made it! Yaya
Day 5 done! I’ve tried the begginer calendars before and never made to the 2nd week. I feel confident that this time I’ll manage it (and hopefully the whole 28 days). Today was easier than yesterday to make myself do this so keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks for this, Cassey!
Day 4 is done! I’m glad I did this. I inicially didn’t want to (again! Yes, I’m a super lazy and sedentary person) but talked myself into it and I’m super happy with myself now. As usual, thank you, Cassey for doing this.
Quarantine day 1 in NZ, seems like a good idea
Day 3 done. Not easy to convince myself to do it, but I did it! Thank you, Cassie for doing this for us!
I was actually curious what the difference is between this calendar and the New Beginners Calendar 2.0. I started on that one over a year ago and didn’t keep up with it. I’m revamping my way of working out now and I see there’s two different options. Does it matter where I start?
Is it better to start with the beginners calendar or to try the monthly calendar first? I am someone who does not usually exercise but just started watching your videos to exercise more often. Please share your thoughts!
I’ve been doing POP Pilates on and off for years and I definitely recommend the Beginner Calendar starting out. I come back to it when I haven’t been exercising for a while. It helps you understand the right way to do the moves and is super gradual so by the time you get to the monthly calendar you feel ready for the more advanced moves and longer workouts. I’ve tried going straight to the monthly calendar before and it killed me!!
I’m going to dothis! I was planning to do the quarantine work out first, but it seemed a bit too extreme, so I will start with the beginners first
I started yesterday!! Feeling good!! Thank you too much <3
Thank you Casey for the 28 day beginner workout. Can’t wait to start this week!
Which calendar or routine to follow after completing this calendar ? I am on 4 th week first day and I wonder after four more days can I follow this month March 2020 calendar ? It would be too advanced ? Or have to repeat this calendar again ? Need some pointers
Hi! I’ve repeated the last week of this calendar once again because I think it’s kind of challenging. Now I’m going to start PIIT starter calendar, I think regular ones are a bit too advanced yet.
Started yesterday – so today is day 2 of the beginner calender
You don’t have to start over! Skipping a day or even a week isn’t that bad. You’re still getting used to the routine 🙂
We do this calendar 1st and that we start on the advance one(the ones that actually have the month name lol)? If this makes sense lol(sorry I’m bad in explaining !)
I skipped a day due to being overwhelmed. Start the calendar again?
How much amount of calories should you burn
Starting today! 💓
Starting today! I’m so excited, hopefully I can stay consistent 😅
How to go about commenting and also do I have to download IG or will Facebook do I seem unable to get everything organized in order
I’m excited. New month, new challenge. Thank you ma’am. You’re truly awesome.
I am happy I found it today as tomorrow the first day of the new month, so no excuses for me anymore :))))
Hi, I was planning on starting this workout plan soon and was just wondering about a warm up and cool down. I was wondering if you would suggest doing one before and after each day’s workout. And if so, what to do for the warm up and cool down or what video(s) of them would you recommend?
Hi, I was planning on starting this workout and I was just wondering if you would suggest doing a warm up and cool down before and after each day’s workout or if you believe it’s fine with out? Also if you do recommend a warm up and cool down, what kind or what video would you recommend?
This looks great! Roughly how much time do you need to be able to allocate per day to be able to do it?
Can ‘t wait to start!
Hello .. I’m a bit confused lol because on day 3 the plan says slim n sculpt and arm fat blaster !! But your video for day 3 it was abs and inner thigh. Am I missing something or I’m just stupid?
I would recommend looking up the videos by name (like “Slim n Sculpt”) on YouTube. She has multiple challenges going at once, so the video you found for day 3 might be for a different challenge.
I think that this calendar will be very helpful for me because I am putting my physical health back together again after not being physically active for years. I will need to modify all the workouts that I can with what is on the calendar and with Pilates. I have a Stability ball to help me with those movements especially with the roll ups and I have a mat. I have not done Pilates in years especially ones on the floor. I have done standing Pilates on YouTube and they are very fun.
Is it ok to train if you have muscle pain from the day before?
I’m noticing that even the beginner workouts are still way too hard and painful for me to do. Are there any easier videos, or do you have any tips? I’m doing the beginner calender in place of the regular 2020 Challenge calendar, btw.
Gosh I can’t wait to start this program 💕
This is an amazing way to stay accountable for all things, including fitness. Thanks hum!
So excited to start
Thank you so much for this! I have been looking for something to keep me motivated and focused!
Thank you Cassey! You helped get back in shape back when I was a new Mom! Now I lost that habit of exercising again and want to get it back this 2020!! Thank you for always being a big help in my quest to get healthier!! ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you so much for making this workout plan. I really needed a boost for the new year and this has really helped. Thank you so much 😊
This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thank you for putting this workout calendar together 🙂
Hey Cassey~ I would like to ask if you have a standing beginner’s workout? I’ll be moving to China next week and it seems like I don’t have enough space there. I’d love to continue your workouts there too ( TT ^TT)
I completed the beginner calendar back in 2012 and then did the regular calendars and in the last couple of years I stopped doing pilates. Im excited to restart the beginner journey and hopefully gain more strength 🙂
why isn’t this in the app anymore?
Hey Casey, I really appreciate ur effort in going out and help people feel more comfortable n confident with their body n I really want to be accountable too.. But, I don’t know whether or not I’m comfortable sharing my pic rn.. Will u still help me out?
Hi Cassey! This calendar is my new beginning! Now is my desktop! In this way I’ll be sure that I’ll remenber to get stronger! Thank you so much!! I have a question, after I’ll finish it do you think that I will be able to start the month’s calendar?
Thank you so much I’ve been following you for years, I love your solarity!
How much calories would this help burn roughly…and thanks so much
This is amazing!
Thanks I will print calendar tomorrow and tag you.
i dont have instagram is there another way to communicate with you?
thanks for the information
Thank you so much for this! This keeps me up to date with my workout and keeps me motivated. I’m on day 5 now, I can only do 15 curl ups thought but it’s something. Thank you!
On day 12, the Beginners Ab and
Butt Workout links to the Arm fat blaster video. This is a terrific calendar! Thanks for putting it together.
i now started week three, love them, because they aren’t like super long workouts. still some problems with some of the basics though (like breathing at the right moment), ;s
Day two I am going to do this…. I need too!
You got this !!!
I’m on day 3 on beginners calendar. It’s tough but I’m going strong
I am starting with the beginner’s calendar.Hope it works for me 😀
Hi Casey I’m so excited to join ion again as I was not able to get the calendar with my new phone. I do now was going through withdrawals
So thrilled and excited. I share you with Everyone as you’re the best in so many ways. Congratulations love on your recent wedding. I’m so very happy for you. God bless you. My best and look forward to seeing you everyday
Again my best and gratitude. Love
Hello Cassey! I’ve finally decided to do something with my body due to health problems. I bet on you! Could you advice me which exercise should I do today? 1st or 16th? Thank you!!! :))
Definitely start with the 1st exercise, just go from the 16th-16th instead of a normal month. The first week videos focus a little more heavily on form and doing things properly, and help teach you moves that aren’t explained as in depth in later videos.
In day 12, the first video Beginners Ab and Butt Workout opens Arm Fat Blaster | POP Pilates for Beginners. Is this the video I should do?
Thanks for the refresher, Cassey!! Do you think it would be possible to get this on the app? I’m trying my bestest to find some motivation to actually get to exercising. My 28th birthday is right around the corner and my body isn’t as cooperative as it used to be. Your positive attitude and fun routines really help to encourage me. Thanks!!!
Hi Casey! I love your workouts, but it would be great if you refreshed some of your beginner videos. Your production quality has evolved so much so it would be awesome to see a revamped beginner program! Thanks!
I’m soooo excited-thanks in advance❤️
Thanks . I’m so motivated
I’m excited for tomorrow! Day 1 for Summer Sculpt Program! 🙂
I cant wait!! Thank you <3333
I’m really hyped for a fixed workout that’s not confusing!
Omg I’m a thankful for this I have felt so bad about myself and have been a loyal subscriber for a very long time thank you so much 💛💛💛
starting out! Hope my unwired body can get back to fitness!
Thank you so much! I have two weeks left of school with bunch of schoolwork to do so.. I’ll join everyone else and start my 28 day challenge on June 14th..! I hope that’s okay🤔 Anyways, good luck everyone!
Thank you so much for the free workout Casey!! All your efforts are so generous, you made a workout calendar and everything💕💕💕 You are Godsend. Truly ❤❤
I’m so excited. Thanks for thinking of everything.
I m innn ☆_☆
Cassie, are you offering two sets of workouts, one for beginners and one for intermediate/advanced?
hi Cassie,must we print out the calendars?
Hey Cassie! Is this the same as the summer sculpt or is there a new calendar you will be releasing for it along with its respective videos on Youtube?
Hi Cassie. Are there videos to the food your suggesting we eat or just any recipe will do? Thanks and I cannot wait to start.
Hi Casey! Super excited to go on this journey to wellness with you! I was just wondering if if we will need any equipment
Will there be a video for beginners or just for advanced people?
Hi Casey! So I noticed that on the calendar most of the days have more than one exercise plan. Are we going to do all of them on the single day or do we get to choose one of them for each day? Because there are also a check box! Thanks! 💕
Hey! I feel like we should all take it to our own level and only push a little past our limits. Do what feels right and good for your mind and body. If your body and mind are telling you to do more than one, do it! If you want to do only one, do it!
I was also wondering the same!
Hi Cassie I was wondering, I’m ganna start with ur begginer’s calender and I was wondering if I could add to it your boob lifting video??? And if I, what days should I add it to????
Yes Cassie a boob lifting video or videos would fantastic
Hi! Can anyone tell me if they feel they’ve needed to do the beginner’s calendar twice in a row? I just finished the first month but I still feel like i’m not strong enough to take on monthly calendars.
I am doing it twice! I don’t like moving forward until I feel like I am not really being challenged and want to avoid injury. I can barely make it through these videos and even had to skip days to rest the first time through the calendar so it was more like a 38 day calendar for me lol everyone is at their own level, so pay attention to your own body.
Yes! And you can find older verions of the beginners calendar online and do those too!
Ya!! I think we should increase or decrease circuits according to our own level and do what feels good for our mind and body
I’m excited to restart my journey! Recently survived a car wreck, so now I am walking around, I figured this would be the best place for me to start after everything outside rehab and hospital life!
Hey Cassey! So a few years ago, I found you on youtube. I was completely obsessed with your program and I used it to maintain my weight. (105-110) After being in a toxic marriage, I gained 80 pounds. (185 now) I am now in a very happy relationship, and I’m about to start back up with your workout program and the foods you have on your website. I am so excited to get back to my healthy self again! Much love to you and what you do! <3
Hey I am a great fan of urs my actual problem is now my bmi is normal but I have flabbiness in my arm, armpit,c Alf’s , legs and thighs i wanted a good sculpted body . I would like to workout at gym but my family is not allowing me to that pls help me pls
I’m on my second day of taking on this challenge and I couldn’t feel more excited! I’m setting my foot down and commanding old, bad habits to come to rest. I’m excited to be traveling this journey alongside you! Thank you for creating such a platform!
Heey Cassey i am starting on Monday and i am going to try this 28 days challenge for 4 MONTHS. I know it seems CRAZY but i can’t wait for this to not just change my life but also my body and feeling confident about myself again THANK YOU SO SO MUCH. i will keep you up with my updates if you want.
Just started this today with the 30 day flat abs challenge! I feel so good! Thank you Cassey!
Thank youuuu!! This is literally changing my whole perspective on working out and getting fit! I am by no means overweight and I love the way my body looks but for me, this is about having energy and feeling better about life! I’m so tired of feeling weak and tired all the time! I’ve been doing this for about a week now and I can already feel myself getting a little bit stronger, a little more fit, and I can definitely see how I have more energy! I actually look forward to these work outs everyday! Cassey, you are so encouraging in these videos and so approachable. I love how everything is laid out for me as well. Thank you!
Thank you so much for the inspiration u give for someone like me..it was really accidental that i came across ur video on utube..but i am blessed i feel ..i have somewhat good flexible body..but i have a very huge belly which i reallyy want to get rid off..looking forward to great looking abs..thank u once again
I have slim upper body but heavy lower body.. infact very heavy as of my age..Due to low flexibility, I can’t raise both of my legs straight at 90° without bending..Help me😔
i’m allergic to bananas and avocados
Thx! Appreciate and start from today – now on
Just completed day one! Hoping making this a habit will help my overall mood so I don’t get so burnt out. Wish me luck!
Starting Day 1 today! Hope this becomes a habit!
starting the beginner’s calendar over for the third time. my favourite move is still child’s pose :O 😀 hope this is the last time i’m starting over…
may Cassey’s power and cheerfullness be with us all 🙂
Starting the Beginner Journey! Onto Day 3 tomorrow, yee!
Hi Cassey. Im 45 years young. Ive been doing some of your workouts at home. Should I rather start on the beginners calendar. Is it ok for my age to do your workouts. Please advise. Thank you. I love your videos by the way 🙂
This calendar has been great so far! I
Hi, I’m an italian girl who wants to fit with your calendar for beginners. I’m so excited to start !!!
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.
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
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.
Any gym equipment required?
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
I’m in too.
I wanna start today…got lots of time as I’m homeschooled.
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.
I am trying to do it from today too… not sure if i can do it lol
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,
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
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!
Day one, done!!
Hi ! I am planning to start this workout tomorrow and I was wondering how effective it is for loosing weight ?
I can’t find the beginner workout videos on your youtube channel. How can I find them?
Hey RUBI.AH! You can just type the titles into the Youtube search bar. Here’s the link for her first beginners video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCg_gh_fppI
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.
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?
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.
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!
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!
I click on the title of work and nothing happens no links to the vids help pls x
the videos aren’t showing to click on anymore
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.
is the app of blogilates still available i lost it tried to re download at play store couldnt find it !!!
I had the same problem as well.
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.
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 !
yeah! just finished the calender!
Hello…I’ve watched your videos on YouTube they’re amazing…loved them…😇
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!!
Hell yeah! Going to start tomorrow.
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 🙂
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?
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?
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.
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?
Try it on your knees and elbow-make sure to keep your wrist and knees in line with each other to feel it in your obliques. As u progress go up to ur wrist and knees, then on to your toes and elbow and finally on ur toes and wrist just keep everything parallel to the edge of ur mat and in line 😊
I am so excited to start
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! ❤️
Thank you so much I am so excited to start
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?
did u get slim down from doing beginner calender
A bit yeah, but I’m still pretty nervous about the workouts that require a lot of muscle.
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)
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?
You can follow her calendar she creates.
Is it really simple but challenging?
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.
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.
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?
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 🙂
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!

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!
I liked Ur videos…..I wanted to gud posture…. shoulder broad … because I my height 4’10”
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?
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.
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
Oh I found it. Nevermind.
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 🙂
I can’t see the videos 🙁
it’s great blog,i really like her style, her cheerful personality.thanks for sharing your information.
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.
For moves when on your hands & knees you could try going on your forearms. IDK how to prevent the strained neck.
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.
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?
Just do each video once, if you can do them more then once you’re probably not a beginner 😉
Just click “download hi res cal” instead!
Your link to the youtube channel is currently an invalid link; should be “YouTube.com/Blogilates” not “http://www.youtube.com/blogilates.com” Cheers.
How should I deal with intense soreness after a workout? ALSO, nutrition??
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
In the online version of the pdf, click on the title of the workout to start the video.
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!
super excited for june anyone doing piit28 1.0 through 3.0 this summer and fall?
I cannot wait to start tonight!
Nooo! I was working off the previous calendar and its easily accessible videos listed by Day! 🙁
Yay! This is exciting! Can’t wait to start this calendar and even meal prep for the weekly recipes 😀
Woww thank youu🌍😘💖It will really help me🙌
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?
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 😀
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!
They do cover warm up. 🙂
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!
I am also confused on how to follow the calender. Is there a clickable version or do you just find the vids on YouTube ?
Figured it out sorry !
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!?
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.
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.
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.
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!
This is exactly what I needed to get back on track. Thanks for the update !
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!
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
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.
I’m so excited that you made a new beginners calendar! Thank you so much, this is really motivating. ❤
You are so welcome!
pls, pls, pleeaaase clickable pdf? 🙂 pleeeaase!
Yes it is clickable!
