Okay. I’m finally doing this.

Okay. I’m finally doing this.


I didn’t grow up rich. In fact, it was far from that. My family brought me up in a shack – literally it was a converted wooden garage. 1 bed, 1 bath for 4 people. It would flood when it rained too hard. We had mouse traps everywhere because the mice would eat away at our bags of rice.

My parents taught me and my sister that money was hard to come by and that if we wanted it, we had to save it and work for it. To give you some perspective, McDonald’s was considered a fancy dinner.

So growing up, I always worked hard to earn what I needed. I NEVER ever asked for anything. That humble attitude right there is what has helped me become the entrepreneur that I am today – a girl who (I hate bragging but to get the point across I need to say this, so excuse me!) eventually built 4 internationally successful brands: Blogilates, POP Pilates, POPFLEX, and PIIT28 from scratch, never asking for a dime.

You know the bubbly fitness instructor, but there’s more that goes on behind the scenes. Guys, this is the side of me that I have ALWAYS wanted to share with you. I want you to get to know me for real.

So, over the past 2 years I’ve been hesitating over the idea of starting a podcast in order to share these stories with you. I wasn’t sure if you’d care to listen. Like, do you only want tips on how to get “flat abs and toned arms”? If I showed you more of me, would you be like “well that’s unnecessary”?

Well, guess what? I always follow my heart, not my hesitations. And my heart is telling me to do this.

So here it goes.

Guys, I’m soooooo thrilled to announce that I’m launching “The Sheroic Podcast” on June 21 with one of my best friends and a fellow female entrepreneur Lisa Bilyeu, @lisabilyeu!


I really want you to get to know Lisa because she is an incredible, smart, successful and down to earth Shero that you need in your life too! So watch this video to prep yourself for what’s to come:

You next task is to go follow @besheroic! And go subscribe to “The Sheroic Podcast” on iTunes and Stitcher! The first full length episode drops next Wed June 21!

I can’t wait guys. I literally can’t wait for you to hear the podcast. We’re covering everything from body image to entrepreneurship to love to jealousy to competition to failure to following your dreams and pretty much any topic you want to hear our opinion on. It’s going to be raw, real, and deep. Just the way I like it 😉

Oh and because I am a huge visualizer, take a look at my phone background!

I thought you guys might want it too…so here’s the official Sheroic phone background! Just save the image and make it your wallpaper! We can be twinsies 🙂

Hope you like it! Let’s all channel our inner Sheroes and prepare for a successful launch on June 21!

Alright now go comment and ask a question that you want answered on the podcast. GO!

  2. Chloe alise says:

    No way we dislike that you’re sharing about your background/life outside of fitness!! I’ve always wanted that from fitness youtubers but none I know do. I would love to know you as a person rather than just “that workout girl on youtube.” I’m so excited to hear your podcast and so happy for your success.

    1. Chloe alise says:

      Sorry, the first sentence may have been worded badly. I meant “no way that we would dislike….”

  3. I am looking so much forward to listening to the podcast. Just downloaded it so I can listen to it the afternoon on my way to yoga 🙂
    And a huge congrats for starting a podcast – it’s so amazing!

    I listened to all the episodes in just two days, love it!
    Would love to hear you talking about being a FEMALE entrepreneur! (prejudices, is it harder for women than for men etc) Keep that great work up that you are doing!

  5. Kim says:

    Yay! Thank you for the podcast! I was wondering what advice would you give a woman who is currently pregnant and a woman who just gave birth in terms of fitness. Is Pop Pilates safe for pregant woman? Thank you! Love you!

    This is awesome. I’ve been looking for more positivity and motivation in my life.

    Hey Cassey!
    I grew up in an Asian household and my mom was against me dating in high school. Naturally that continued into college. Now I’m twenty two and I’ve never had a real relationship. I feel so inexperienced and I’m not sure even how to date in the real world. Also I’m worried about the chance that my mom might disapprove of interracial dating. I’ve never brought it up because I’m scared of how she’ll react. Can you help me out?

  8. Hillary Ann Rousseau says:

    So very excited Casey! Cannot wait for what is in store!

  9. alpha says:

    I am really looking forward to your podcast. Could you talk a little bit of racism and discrimination? I am Asian American like you and has periodic experience verbal agression or different treatment than others because of my skin color. Would appreciate your insight and honesty on how to deal and cope. Thank you!

    Questions: Have you ever regretted not becoming a “health professional” or wished you’d learned more about the biology behind health? What advice would you give to someone who isn’t sure what career path she wants to take or what she is passionate about?

    I am soooo excited for this!! XD
    I’m starting college I’m going to study studio art and graphic design but a lot of people have been telling how i will never find a job if i study this. But I am determined to work hard and Cassey is one of the people who inspires me to be myself and keep working hard. I’ve always wanted to know how in the world Cassey has accomplished everything she has, she’s my hero and one of my biggest role models she just inspires me so so much and I just can’t wait to hear
    more of her life and how she became who she is now 🙂

    Sorry momentary fan girl-ing. I will compose myself now. 🙂
    I respect all of your business decisions and I think you are one of the most real public figures our generation has to look up to. Thank you for putting yourself out there everyday for each and every one of us to learn from. I am over the moon excited to listen to your podcast! You are intelligent, funny, and kind.
