OH MANNNN. Just shot and loaded a new vid on Blogilates. Perhaps this is one of the hardest ab challenges yet. Well for me at least!!! Those Hollow Rocks – whoa they getcha and they getcha good!!!

I did this one to Owl City and Carly Rae Jepson’s “Good Time” via some POPster suggestions on YouTube. It was between this or “Wings” by Little Mix. “Wings” sounded so dancey that I wanted to do a cardio dance vid to it. But dance doesn’t come to be the way Pilates does, so if I do that, I’d need a little more time.

TRY IT!!!! Let me know how you like it and how many times you can do it!!!

Also, on BlogilatesTV I uploaded a running vlog (I’m literally running) to Tower Bridge and London Bridge. Watch it if you’d like to see how it is to come on a run with me through London! I’m thinking of doing something similar today maybe? We’ll see though bc it’d actually pretty hard to run with an iPhone propped up in front of you the whole time. Well actually, that’s not too bad. The bad part is the editing. SO MANY CLIPS!!!


How pretty is that!!???? This is the Tower Bridge (not the London Bridge as I thought in my video.)

Tower of London – this is where the London Dungeon tour happens. They re-enact tortures and things. I wanna go.

GB flowers!!! So nice!!!!


YouTube is making us do these funny picture challenges and thought I’d share with you guys what we came up with! It has to show something fun, something London, something Olympics-eque. So we thought it was most appropriate to get some pole action on in the Tube.

We also did a pyramid. ONE HANDED. YEAHHHHH!!!!!!!

Can anyone tell me what this looks like?

That’s all I have for you today my loves!! Quite a bit yeah? Well I hope you enjoyed the photos. There will be tons more. I hope you had a chance to read our latest POPstar transformation – click here to read Ashley’s story. Also, new TRAIN LIKE A BEAST LOOK LIKE A BEAUTY tanks will be avail next week most likely oh shopblogilates.com.

So hang tight!! And the DVD is being edited. Sort of. LOL. That’s up to me. “CASSEY GET ON IT!!!!!!”

Ok love you so much!

<3 Cassey

    I am a runner and soooo LOVED your running Vlog. You are just too cute! It made me feel like I was on a run in London!! so cool! I’m off to do my run now, but not in as cool as a location as yours!!

  2. Amarelain says:

    The London Dungeon and the Tower of London are 2 completely separate places. They do not re-enact Medieval tortures at the Tower of London! I think a lot of people really get confused about this the way they get confused about London Bridge and Tower Bridge.

    What about a chair Pilates class! I teach to elders who love good core work
    And everything is done in a chair

  4. Allie says:

    Omg you are the cutest runner/vlogger!! 🙂 I am so jealous you are in London & especially during such a magical time! That seriously was one of the hardest videos for me to do (especially after the gym when I am so tired!!). Thank god I tried it though! Keep it coming!!!

  5. Kimberly says:

    Nice video but your make up looked horrible!!! It’s so unnecessary to have that white shadow outlining the inner corner of your eyes for running. Do what suits your face, not so much the trend.

    1. Lisa says:

      Why are you being such a bitch ?! Cassey looks great.

    2. jess says:

      wow, why are you such a bitch.

  6. Renee says:

    I LOVE your running Vlog! I’ve been to London twice now and I absolutely LOVE it there and I am so super jealous that you’re there at quite possibly the BEST TIME EVER for the Olympics. Have tons of fun, and I hope you keep posting awesome things and pics on your blog.

    I know you’re originally from the East Coast- I live in Boston. Are you ever going to travel back here and have a POP Pilates meet up!? I would love to meet you and the rest of the Boston POPsters.

    Hi Cassey,
    Where did you get that BEAUTIFUL mat?! I really want to buy a cute mat like the one in this video.

  8. Karen says:

    super excited for the tanks!!

  9. Some1 somewhere says:

    Hi Cassey awesome pictures.
    As for the challenge i tried it and had a some back pain so i stopped.
    I feel dissapointed in myself .
    I twitted u and i wanna know wat was wrong in my workout.
    So am sending this to double check.
    Sorry for bothering.
    With all my love.

    Ask Cassey Question:

    Hos does you typical workout week shape up? What do you do each day, i.e., weights, parts of body you work out, cardio, types of cardio, etc.? How do you keep from having a mundane workout schedule?

  11. Erynn says:

    this ab workout KILLED me! Great job 🙂

  12. Jocelyn says:

    Love the run blog! Do more of those!

  13. Your run looks like so much fun! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  14. Giselle says:

    Looks like you’re seeing a lot while you are out in London but you still take time to post new work-outs, thanks for the dedication!
    One comment- not hating on Abs, I definitely need to work them out, but I feel like you’ve been focusing on that a lot in the last several videos. Can you maybe change it up to arms or back for one of the next ones? It’s not a huge deal, fortunately you have a lot of older videos covering other areas to pick from for variety!!

  15. Cathy says:

    Hah! These pictures are great!!!

    I’m going to try that abs challenge tonight.

    And I’m going to conquer it!!!

  16. Sayuri says:

    OMG Cassey this looks so cool you make me want to go to London so much!

  17. sAM says:

    I seriously would kill to run with you there!

  18. Jessica says:

    Hey Cassey, when you run you do some kind of weights before or after? or is it only cardio ? or maybe you split it ? like running in the morning and weights in the evening ? is it effective to split by the way ?
    BTW London looks amazing, i have to go there !Hopefully next year:)

    1. Lisa says:

      I was wondering about the working out thing too, can you please answer Jessica’s question?

  19. You are so precious! Glad you’re having a blast in London and can’t wait to rock this ab challenge!!

  20. emily says:

    i love you top in the challenge vid. where is it from?

  21. Janina says:

    Beautiful pictures Cassey! 🙂 I have been doing your work outs for about a year now and I LOVE ’em! You are always so happy and inspiring!
    And omg, I fell in love with the tanks! Just too bad I live in Finland, so I don’t think my parents will buy me one. Keep on doing your awesome videos♥

  22. Mariko says:

    We lived in England when I was a lil’ girl (military brat) and the London Dungeon was my faaaaavorite thing to do in London. Yes, I was a strange girl even then. 😉 My cousin is competing in the olympics…Jamie Gray (shooting); keep an eye out for her!

  23. Your pictures from running around London are gorgeous! And I love the olympic rings pic–too cute! 🙂

  24. haha! Very nice pole sit, Cassey! About to do this abs challenge now! Looks great. ~Kat
