Hey guys!!

Wow! The first week of #JanYOUary is already through? CRAZINESS! And you’ve all been doing sooooo well. I’ve seen all your posts with your 30 Day Flat Abs printout and your latest workout calendar! I am a proud POPster momma!


Also guess what!!?? Did you hear the news!?? I’ve been waiting to tell you guys this and now I finally can! My new DVD “POP Pilates: Flat Abs Fast!” made it into Target!! AHHHH!! (I’m dying.)


This really is an achievement for us all. There would be no Blogilates without you. So congrats to all of us! I was so excited that I decided to celebrate by sitting in a shopping cart while doing a photoshoot. There were random customers looking at me. But whatever. Who cares right!!?? Live your life and don’t be afraid to be bold. Or weird 😀

The DVD is exclusively at Target right now and features 3 workouts:

1. Hard Core

2. Muffintop Melter

3. Lower Belly Blast

I hope you like it guys! It’s filmed on the beach and showcases some of my best POP Pilates tummy toning moves. Yay!! And thank you always for your support guys. Thank you thank you so much.

Now…let’s talk about cardio.


Today I present to you a cardio dance routine. Honestly guys, I am not a cardio type. I would much rather weight lift or do Pilates than do cardio. It’s just how I am. But the one thing that gets me as excited as doing Ballerina Twists, Earthquakes, and Candlestick Dippers is DANCING.

Dancing is such an amazing release of energy for me and it makes me feel soooooo happy! I love moving with music (that’s why POP Pilates is designed the way it is). I sweat a ton when I dance, about as much as when I do burpees. But guess what! I don’t loathe dance. But you better bet I loathe burpees. So to me, dancing is a cardio godsend. I am so happy that I can get my sweat on, go HARD, and still have loads of fun. I can do it for an hour straight. But get me on a treadmill for an hour? Oooohhh. No thanks.

So today I want you to give cardio dance a try. It’s really going to be so much fun! I choreographed a very simple but sassy routine for you to “BODYPOP“! (Yay, finally! I’ve been meaning to do this since summer.) So you don’t have to be a professional dancer to do this. I’m not. I just love it!

When you practice it and finally get it down, try to do this dance 3x through back to back with a 30 sec to 1 min break in between. When you feel confident, just play the song (get “BODYPOP” on iTunes) and do it without me! You’re going to have a blast!

And if any of you feel brave…please upload a video of you dancing to BODYPOP! It would make my day!! I would love it!!

Ok well gotta go now! Love you and have an amazing start to your week!

    I just bought your DVD! I bought your first one over the weekend and I’ve done it three times now and love it! I look forward to doing it everyday now. Did anyone who bought both DVDs notice a difference? I’m very skinny but have a small “pooch” and wish to see my abs. (: I’ve done workouts on the calendar for a few months on and off and already seen a difference so I would assume the DVDs help too..

    I LOVED THIS WORKOUT!! thanks cassey I made the whole dance 3X IM DYING!

  3. Yaira says:

    I’m in love with the video!!! I remember you telling me about it when you came to Nyc and then to actually watch it…. What a great feeling!!!! Yaaay

  4. Vanessa says:

    I did this cardio dance and I LOVED it so much!!! 🙂

  7. paulina says:

    Simply love your work and pilates videos!!


  8. Vanessa says:

    Does anyone know where the blogilates community went to. Cassey did you end up taking it down?? I used to use it back in April all the time and then stopped for a bit. I tried going back on and can’t find it anymore!!

    1. Rachel says:

      Yes, she did take it down in October. The Blogilates App is available for free download though, and many POPsters use it to post pics and make new friends 🙂

      1. Rose says:

        Can someone point me to tech support for the Blogilates app? I’ve been using the beginner’s monthly calendar on my iPad for a while with no problem, but now that I’ve subscribed to the monthly calendar, the videos won’t load & shut down automatically before they finish opening, I haven’t updated iOS or made any other changes besides adding the monthly subscription. I’ve been trying to find a link to some help on this for several days and am on the verge of just deleting the app & canceling the subscription: it’s frustrating that there’s nothing easily available to address tech support problems.

        1. blogilates says:

          Make sure to email and they will help you!!

          1. Rose says:

            Unfortunately, after a week and two emails, no one from Veam has even acknowledged my help request, so I still can’t use the app. Feeling like I never should have subscribed: it was working fine before and I’ve now been unable to use it for weeks! I’ve been a loyal follower for a long time, but this has been a frustrating process and I feel disappointed.

    Cassey you are amazing and your are my inspiration ! Thank you for being such a good person and for inspiring other people ! I hope one day I can meet you. Have you ever been in Brazil? I hope one day you can come here. Thank you for everything !!!

  10. Hannah says:

    I never got my password :”(. I love your YouTube videos!

  11. Kasia says:

    Cassey you are THE ONE!!I only watched the video now but I love this cardio dance workout and I am looking forward to try this tomorrow!

    I am a fan of yours, you are so energetic and it’s great!! Huge Congratulations from Poland!! (the other side of globe;-))

  12. Haha! Love the photo! Awesome 🙂 And well done, that so amazing – you should be super proud!

    By the way, I have an Etsy shop selling illustrations – but I specialize in yoga illustrations, you can check it out here if you want:

  13. Antonia says:

    The dance cardio was so much fun!! My husband definitely walked by a couple times and laughed (out of jealousy!). I also was able to find the ab workout at Target— I got one of only 3 copies left! Congrats, Cassey! You are such an inspiration. Thanks for all you do.

  14. Is this on sale in Australian targets love? Can’t wait to try this danceworkout….I should record and post my first time….that would be HILARIOUS…for you….perhaps no so much for me 😛

  15. Serena says:

    Hi Cassey! Loved the dance cardio vid! Its a really fun way to work out.
    Wanted to let you know that I featured a few of your tanks in my workout outfits post because I think they’re super cute! Just an FYI

  16. Lily says:

    I love your outfit! Especially the jacket. I’ve been looking for a cute warm jacket like that!! Congrats with the DVD! You are an inspiration!

  17. Rachael says:

    Is the DVD only in stores?

  18. Lynn says:

    Congrats Cassey on the DVD! You look too cute in the shopping cart xD. This cardio dance looks fun!

  19. Jordina says:

    WOW! Congratulations Cassey! You are the perfect example that hard work pays off! And that kindness is all you need to be successful too 🙂
    btw I loved your banana pancakes so much that I decided to include them in my blog, under the post My 10 Favorite Recipes of 2014. I have obviously given you all the credit, and linked it to this post 😉 I hope there is no problem with it, otherwise feel free to contact me 😉

  20. Sinead says:

    Cassey you have perfectly described why I go to Zumba class on top of doing blogilates! I get really disinterested when I do cardio and am likely to quit after half an hour. With Zumba, I do a full hour, sweat dripping, and love every second of it!

  21. YOU + shopping cart = soooo cute!!! And HUGE congrats on the DVD!! Cardio doesn’t need to be crazy intense and boring to be super effective, here’s to you showing women all over the country that they can get fit AND have fun. It’s the only way to be!

    xoxo Jill

    I have a question to ask,hope someone can answer me. On the calendar on every Tuesday there is this (New Year New You ).What does that mean? I thought it was a video but when I search in Cassey’s channel I don’t see anything related to it. I am new to do Cassey’s worout.

    1. Sabrina says:

      It’s an exclusive video that you get through the App. I bought the calender, so I don’t know whether you get it if you just download the app.
      Hope that helps 🙂

  23. Joely says:

    This video looks so fun! I’m going to try it today, I love your dance workouts. Congratulations on your second DVD, that is amazing (I loved your first one. So I will definitely be getting this.). You put so much work and effort into helping us. Cassey you are a beautiful person inside and out.
    <3 Joely

  24. Anna says:

    Hey cassey, I wanna start to eat healthy but i’m having a large allergy on fruit and vegetables, what do you think i could do and eat? appreciate the help very much, And maybe you can email me your answer ( from a large fan from Sweden <3<3<3

  25. Jamila says:

    What do I need to do to get the target in my area (va) to carry your dvds?

  26. Congratulations on making it into Target!!! Yayyyyyyyyy for POP!

  27. Dunia says:

    I’m so excited to try your new workout Dvd. I absolutely loved your first one. I’m currently working on losing weight and I’m using my blog to stay motivated and on track. I love using your workouts to help me reach my goals. I know I will eventually achieve my goals. thank you for your motivation

  28. Jharna says:

    CONGRATULATIONS CASSEY! Your hard work, and perseverance has really paid off! I am a big fan of yours and I love your dance work out videos that you give to us on your workout calendars! You seem to be very passionate about them!!! I’m so happy for you! Congrats again! 🙂

  29. I went to Target yesterday and saw the DVD! Totally bought it 🙂 I am looking forward to it!! Congrats!

  30. KathyHeap says:

    Congrats Cassey to your new DVD!! 🙂
    I’m looking forward to doing workout as soon as I’m healthy enough again. I’ve been ill a whole week by now. Luckily I was able to stop sneezing today cause my nose hurts pretty bad. I’ve figured out that I can deal with fever, cough and cold but not if they appear altogether, which they did.
    Hope you are going to do another #-week-challenge this year and that I’ll be able to join for real this time 😉 I kinda stopped working out regularly in December cause my body felt weak and I was studying a lot for my bachelor of arts and right after I passed the exam, cold hit me.
    I wish you all a happy New Year 2015 and good luck with whatever you do!! I hope everyone can reach their goals 🙂

  31. Klára says:

    That is soo good! Cassey, you should make another dance cardio for us soon, really great!!

  32. I didn’t know you were in the process of making another DBD, congratulations, Cassey! How do you not get paparazzi when you walk into target? You’re famous!

    I feel you in the cardio vs strength training part, but I’d love love love to see more cardio HIIT workouts as intense as food baby workout from you. I will definitely give the cardio dance a go around.

  33. mariam says:

    i did it and it was soooo fun! don’t think i’ll be repeating since i’m doing the calendar tho ;P but i will be adding it to days that are less than an hour!!! i used to do the summer dance and mute it and put on bodypop instead and now i finally have a video for bodypop <3

  34. Vilma says:

    This is the best cardio dance workout ever! ♥ I already did this twice and had so much fun with you and the whole thing. Whooo! Now I feel so good and confident. 🙂
