PIIT28 1.0 ROUND 1 Transformations!
Soooo to celebrate the conclusion of PIIT28 1.0 and The 28 Day Reset, round 1…I am posting a mirror selfie in a sports bra! *GASP* I rarely ever wear clothes that show off my mid section because, to be honest, I’m very self-conscious of it! Growing up chubby, then losing a ton of weight for my Bikini Competition back in 2012, then gaining all of it back the few years following the competition put my body in a very bad stage of metabolic disruption. (I was eating close to 1000 cals a day and working out 4+ hrs a day during the comp prep.) You can watch my video on “Why I Will NEVER Diet Again” here. No matter what I ate or how I worked out, I would gain weight constantly. I’m talking eating a salad and doing HIIT vs eating a pizza and watching TV. Same results. In fact, sometimes, the pizza would make me lose weight. It was weird and incredibly frustrating. My body just wasn’t working for me anymore. I felt like it was working against me.
So, a year and a half ago, I started developing the beginnings of what would eventually become PIIT28. Tired from all of my travels and strapped for time, I put working out as a last priority. It sounds crazy (especially as a fitness instructor) but I was just so upset! I wanted to stop it all! Nothing I did seemed to work, so it was incredibly unmotivating. But…I noticed that I was also unhappier.
And that’s something I can’t accept – whether or not I have abs showing through.
I was determined to find a solution to find my JOY in exercise again. I paired together my 2 loves, Pilates and HIIT and created PIIT – Pilates Intense Interval Training. It was so intense that I knew under half an hour would do it if I went full max effort.
Slowly but surely, my body started changing. Tiny tiny things that only I could see, but it was SO SATISFYING to be able to dig myself out of this 3 year plateau. I personally tested all moves and routines over and over to make sure they would be safe, fun, and of course, effective for myself and for you guys. The truth is, I needed PIIT28 more than anyone. And I am SO HAPPY and SO PROUD that I gave my body time to heal. Because now, everything is working again 🙂 But more importantly, I am HAPPY and I am STRONG.
So many POPsters (or shall I say PIITsters!?) dared to endure the fury of PIIT28 1.0 with me when I released my program in March. And now, I have some REALLY COOL results to share with you guys after just 28 days of working out 28 min and 40 sec a day! I am so impressed by everyone’s dedication! Some girls did PIIT28 1.0 alone and some did The 28 Day Reset too, which was co-written with the Blogilates Exec Chef and Head of Nutrition, Erin Woodbury.
Now…get ready for some serious inspiration before we head off into Round 2 of PIIT28 1.0 on April 1st!

“Final day of #PIIT28 and #PIITSTAGRAM! Wow what a trip it’s been!
I never thought I’d be able to shed all this weight that’s accumulated from all the bad eating and lack of cardio, but here we are. I’ve lost weight before, but I’ve never had so many people tell me they notice a big change in my appearance. I’ve never had people go out of their way to compliment my body. I always thought I’d just be a bit chubby and that was OK. I learned to accept that.
I started this workout series not because I wanted to lose weight, but because I wanted to support Cassey and her hard work and improve my health. I truly never expected such big change and I can honestly say I look forward to round 2…and 3 and 4 and however many rounds there will be!
I love looking in the mirror and seeing myself as a strong person. I see muscles I never thought I’d see and definition I never knew was possible for my body.
But most importantly, piit taught me that there’s always time and energy for a 30 min workout and that to me is the biggest success because if I don’t workout consistently I have to endure health issues that so far have only been prevented or avoided by working out.
Thank you Cassey for such an amazing workout plan and not to mention amazing meal plan! I’m always well fed and my cravings are nonexistent. #piitprincess for life!”
Meet Brina, @fitbribri
“Last day of #piit28 is here! I’ve noticed huge changes in my body. My abs are tighter, my waist is smaller, my arms are stronger, and my confidence has improved! In terms of abs, mine were probably looking better last week since I’ve been a bit bloated recently, but looking at these two pictures side-by-side is so encouraging! I can’t believe that I’ve improved so much in only 28 days! I’ve lost around 10 lbs since I first starting working out in January and I’m down maybe 5 lbs from Cassey’s program. Now it’s time to gain it all back in muscle!”
Meet Jordan, @popster_jordan
Day 28: The last day of PIIT. How bittersweet. I have accomplished so much in these last 28 days and my journey is far from over, this is only the beginning. I can see a difference in myself. I have lost 13 lbs and 15.5 total inches, but I have gained much more than that. I have gained better posture, a happier mood, huge confidence in myself, a new found love of my body and deep appreciation for what I am capable of doing. I know I have a ways to go but PIIT gave me the tools and the courage to keep going. PIIT gave me my life back! I finished #PIIT28 and I am a #piitprincess!
Meet Katie, @katie.piit28
“Today is the final day of the challenge! This past month really has flown by. I’m so surprised by my results, especially since I wasn’t following a meal plan or counting macros or anything. I tried to mostly eat clean, but I would have a couple treat meals a week (still all vegan though). I feel so much stronger and am able to do better at each workout. I plan to restart the program from the beginning. Who else is restarting the program? . ? Good luck to everyone after this challenge! Let’s continue to support each other.”
Meet Mackenzie, @Mackenzie.r.richardson
“Before pic on the left, after on the right. Can’t believe it’s been one month already! I’ve lost 8 lbs, I’ve definitely lost inches. Clothes fit me completely differently. My favorite change is how strong I feel. I never thought I’d be able to successfully do mountain climbers or plank jacks, but now I can. I also have way more energy throughout the day. Great job to everyone who completed PIIT and transformed themselves! Can’t wait to start round 2 April 1st and see how much more we all change!”
Meet Caitie, @caitie.did
“Day 28 of #PIIT28! I guess my abs have come out of hiding a little, but I’d like to share the things I have gained that are NOT abs:
1) Increased happiness (Cardio makes me happy, Pilates makes me happy, and combining the two has made me ecstatic)
2) Improved stamina (I promise that 4 minutes of jumping lunges have gone from being actual torture to actual fun)
3) A fulfilling sense of accomplishment (I did all 28 days!)
4) Improved posture (Which is not evidenced by this awkward selfie that I had to crouch in order to take in the TV lounge this morning )
5) New, inspiring friends in other #PIITSTAGRAMMERS! (Thanks for your support)
I have confidence that these 5 gains are going to remain, even if my abs go back into hiding in 5 days or 5 minutes from now. Thanks @blogilates for this awesome way to challenge myself physically and mentally.”
Meet Jen, @insta_jen77
“Day 28! Here’s my before & after for #PIIT28! I know the physical changes aren’t huge but I’ve made amazing progress with my endurance and stamina. I can feel the difference much more than you can see it here. I’ve really enjoyed this challenge and I’m looking forward to Round 2! I’m especially excited about adding some extra ab work & body weight work into the mix! Big thank you to Cassey (@blogilates) & the entire #Blogifam For creating such a quick, effective and fun workout! Now let’s go crush the next 4 weeks!”
Meet Raelyn, @rae.fit15
“Day 28: Progress Pics. I can’t believe we made it! Honestly when I started this 28 days ago there was a part of me that thought I wasn’t going to be able to finish, that I would get bored and just stop. I am so proud of myself for finishing though because I feel STRONGER, more CONFIDENT, and just HAPPIER!
When I look at my before and after pictures, I mostly see some ab definition and better posture!! Of course the real gain from this journey is mentally because I know I can finish something if I put my mind to it. Also if something is hard at the time, the result will feel great!!! I have loved being part of the blogilates community and I plan to keep posting on here with my journey through PIIT 28 round 2!!! I have loved watching everyone’s progress and the support is absolutely amazing! Thank you @blogilates for something I now look forward to everyday!”
Meet Meggie, @popstermarie
“#PIIT28 and 28-day reset results! I’d say it went pretty well 🙂 I feel stronger for sure, but I definitely feel wiser too. I’ve never gone loner than five hours “eating clean” before because I could get away with eating practically anything since I’m so active. Sustaining healthy habits over a long stretch of time has taught me that it’s possible to have continuous energy all day long. I seriously had no idea it was possible to feel like this!”
Meet Amy, @algeorge14
“Last day of the #piit28 #PIITSTAGRAM challenge!! Definitely a bittersweet day, BUT, Round 2 is just around the corner. Who’s signing up?!
So my results are a little cray but I feel great! I’ve lost a total of 6.5 inches all over my body. Now that might be startling to some people who know me. I never had weight to lose to start…But hold on my friend, I weighed myself yesterday at Dads & I’m 116lbs (normal weight) so the only possible explanation for my inch loss is FAT loss & muscle GAIN! And that’s exactly what Cassey said this program would do! My strength has 150% increased.
I remember the first week doing mountain climbers. I had to slow down halfway through. Now I can push through 4 rounds at a steady pace. It most definitely does NOT get easier, you just get better. I’m also impressed with my burpees. I know I’ve increased the amount each week! I think my PR is 11 per 45 seconds but I want to do even better next round! The moves I hated the most were: surfers, squat hops, plie hops & tuck jumps. My goal this round is to improve on these moves! My cardio has always sucked & PIIT is definitely helping.
Long gone are the days of spending hours at the gym. PIIT is where it’s at!! As for my diet, I followed the 28 Day Reset meal plan pretty darn close. You can’t expect to get great results if you’re just half a**ing it (to put it bluntly). HOWEVER, I allowed myself treats that fit the meal plan guidelines. Initially my body wasn’t used to all of this food, esp. the protein. It was difficult to eat it all. Now I feel like I can always eat. I’ve realized I’ve been undereating in the past & this was actually hurting me. Your body can adapt to all of the extra food & use it efficiently as fuel!! Never EVER under fuel. I’m kicking myself a little bit. But lesson learned. I now know how to treat my body correctly thanks to @blogilates.”
All of these girls ROCK!!!!
Notice how all of them talked about how much STRONGER and HAPPIER they each felt. Reading these captions made my heart so warm and my smile so big!! Because that was the REAL reason why I developed PIIT28 for myself to begin with. To find my balance and to find my happiness again 🙂
Take a look at The 28 Day Reset
I really hope you guys enjoyed this blog post. Comment below and tell me how exercising makes you feel!

Ate these workouts that I can do with a hip replacement?
So , it’s only available over the Internet ? Meaning , I won’t be able to find it in the stores ? B
ecause my parents are strictly against buying anything over the Internet
Hi i was just wondering if anyone knew if the meal plan for 28 day reset is budget friendly. I think its a good investment to purchase the combo of the workout/meal plan however, Im a college student so Im not looking to spend a whole ton on groceries every week. Thanks 🙂
no it’s not very budget friendly. she uses a lot of expensive ingredients but you can replace them if you want.
To Cassey or anyone who has done the 28 Day Reset, would you compare it to the Whole30? I’m about to start that in September and this program sounds fairly similar (eliminating dairy/gluten/grains) but much less restrictive. You can’t even have IMITATION pancakes on Whole30!
I’m interested to try this program instead but I’d like to know the differences.
I’ve been eating proper and working out as usual but I noticed that my upper body shrinking. Is it possible to workout without it shrinking and how can I prevent it?
please consider including a grain-milk pre-workout meal! and add a glass of fresh juice to your post-work out diet. Munch on some sun dried fruits with sufficient H20 !
Hey Lovely POPSTERS and Cassey! I have saved up money for PIIT 28 and am going to begin my journey today! I am excited but have a few questions!
My friend said she watches the videos on her laptop.
I am wondering if I can Chromecast the videos to my TV?!?!
I always Chromecast her YouTube videos to my TV so they are in better view for me.
MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL
I Chromecast them every morning, both straight from the Blogilates app or youtube! You should be good to go. Good luck!
Hi Cassey! I have two questions for you. 1. In the picture you´ve posted on yourself after doning PIIT 28, witch btw looks AMAZING, you say that you´ve worked out and followed the PIIT, and I just wonder for how long you´ve been doing that? Are we talking months or years? The reason I wanna know, is because I have a similar body type to you and believe I could achieve similar results as you. (And who does not want to look the way you do in those pictures?!), 2. This next one is more of a problem rather then a simp question, but I want to know how you would do and if you can help me? I am soo into trying out the PIIT 28, as you might have understood, both the workout-part and the food-part. But, here comes the problem. In school, where I live, we are served lunch at school. The food isn´t thaaat unhealthy, pretty regular, but it is not “CLEAN”. So, how do I do with the meal plan? I see, I can off bring lunch with me everyday, but it seems like a lot of work, and (not that Im concerned by myself in that way) but I believe my friends and the other people around would start questioning it A LOOOT! So what would you do? Still bring? It just a little at lunch, and then bring some snack? (like one of those life bars or such) Would really like a respond. And ofc I love so much, you’re so beautiful and motivating.
I have two questions for Cassey or another Blogilates trainer or member. My first question is If you are so insanely sore, do you not work out? Or do you push it and work out anyway? I have started doing Pop Pilates everyday for the past month-and I didn’t take any days off- and then I bought PIIT yesterday and did the first work out, and today my back is super sore. Maybe I did the work outs incorrectly, or maybe it’s from a build up of lactic acid in the muscle I’m not sure. Either way, should I do the second PIIT work out today, or give it a rest?
My second question is if I am doing PIIT, can I still do other POP Pilates videos as well?
Everyone is different but personally it depends how sore I am. Am I sore from a hard workout or am I hurt. Sometimes I’ll start a workout the next day and see – can I do the workouts without being in pain (normally for me, if I’m sore and I start to workout the soreness will start to go away – if the pain stays I’m on the verge of being hurt). If its actual pain not soreness definitely don’t push it. Its better to take a day or two to recover now that be so hurt you’re forced to talk weeks (or more off). I do realize you posted this 6 days ago so you’ve prolly already decided if you should do day 2. Also to note – personally I’d suggest giving yourself a rest day (which is worked into the first round of PIIT). This will help your body recover and make you less likely to get injured.
To your second Q: I’d suggest do just PIIT for a week and see how you feel. I know some people did extra workouts and others didn’t. Listen to your body – you can up the intensity (while keeping proper form) to get a better workout from PIIT. But if that isn’t working you can add in more. Just don’t overdo. Doing PIIT and a lot of other videos won’t necessarily help you reach your desired results sooner.
Hope this helps – sorry if I started to ramble.. 🙂
I just das about PIIT28 and I’m finishing the beginners calendar today. It’s okay if I start now or is better wait until May 1st?
Whichever works best for you! People have started on the first of a month or in the middle. Its really all about what works best for you!
Hey everyone, I just purchased the program using a PayPal account so i couldn’t sign up, or anything, is it a dvd sent to my place or is it online, also how do i sign up ? pls help IM SO excited to start this journey with all of you all !
Is there a better site/group to chat with other PIIT28 challengers?
Hey Cassey! I’m really proud of you for creating this not just for yourself but for other people. I sadly can’t do it because 1) No money to buy the program right now and 2) because of the health condition i am in. I am working out as much as my body will let me. I have a small herniated disc that’s bulged out in my lower back, and I have what is called a Pincer Impingement in both hips. That means that I have a dent in my higher hip bone so when I sadly do the leg workouts that you do, my hips lock in place, which means that my lower hip bone connects with the dent in my higher hip bones, I have tried walking, yoga, and stationary biking and between the three i can come up with some crazy workouts for my legs, that require some of your Pilates moves that don’t hurt as bad. But they still hurt, and to top it off with my hips, the muscle band around the hips have completely torn! So I’m waiting on what to do right now from the doctor, I got a cortisone shot and that seems to have helped a little bit, but not 100%. And I need 100% so I can do physical therapy to retrain how to walk, so my hips don’t lock, and heal the muscle. I also keep gaining weight, it doesn’t matter if I workout to cardio and yoga AND Pilates every day also clean for 1-3 hours, and eat right, or not eat right I just keep gaining weight. SO I’m going to ANOTHER doctor this month. Hopefully once I figure out what is wrong with me and gaining weight, and fix/figure out what to do with my hips and back. And IF I have the money, I will be definatley getting the program. I’m just sad I can’t get it right now. But I am happy for you and happy that you’ve helped me gain confidence and lost *what i call inches* around my legs, and stomach. I am a lot farther than where I was a year ago when I first started my weight loss journey. Thank you sooo much!
I’m a swimmer and I have a really big meet coming up and I just need something to pump me up.
I’m a swimmer and I have a really big meet coming up and I need something to get me pumped.
Hey elizabeth! I’m a swimmer too 🙂 do you mean you need something to get you pumped as in energy wise? I was having the same struggles as you were. Let me know if you wanna talk about it and how i got through it if you want any tips/advice!
I wanna subscribe
Cassey, I am recovering from anorexia and I want to know how I can gain muscle during recovery with your workouts, I’m currently at the end of my weight gain journey so it’s safe for me to excercise 30 minutes a day including cardio but I would really like to tone my body as well, could you please give me some advice,
Thank you (p.s. your workouts helped me all throughout recovery???)
Hey Rana! Im tamara and I’ve recovered from anorexia too. And casey was an AMAZING and HUGE part of my success! I haven’t really had anyone to talk about this with and when i saw your comment on here, it really stood out to me and i feel as if i can share my thoughts with you and maybe you could do the same. I have some tips/advice i can possible share with you? Ive gotten some help from a food chemist and founders from a world wide organisation who’s also helped me get back on track. Please let me know if you wanna talk 🙂
Where’s my password? I’ve tried to resubscribe to get my april password, but it keeps saying something went wrong. This is so frustrating.
For PIIT28, can you give some suggestions to substitute for the hard-landing jumping exercises? I mean things like lunge-jumps, star jumps, and tuck jumps.
My neighbors have gotten angry with me before and I don’t want to have that happen again, and I can’t simply land lighter on things like that where I’m shifting my entire body weight.
how about just doing regular lunges or lunge pulses or a light jumping jack? Can you do the regular exercises outside?
Myabe you could do it outside your house. E.G. In your garden or maybe even on a carpet? Hope this helps! Good luck for PIIT 28 second month! 😀
Hi, I’m thinking about doing PIIT28 but I had questions that I don’t see answers for. The most important one has to do with heart rate. So when on the daily calendar and one of videos is HIIT I usually have to pause the video for a good while and just breathe. My heart rate gets high enough to be really uncomfortable, and that is for one round not four. So is this likely to cause that? and are there modifications for that or should I focus on strengthening my heart before I do something like this? Also, if the last, any recommendations?
Since it is high intensity interval training, which involves alternating between bursts of high intensity exercises and short breaks, you can expect your heart rate to increase significantly. Especially if you haven’t done these types of workouts before or in a long while, it’s normal to feel like you have to pause the video and give yourself time to catch your breath. It takes time for your body to adjust to the movements and for you to build the endurance and stamina to last; you’re literally putting your body under moments of high stress (good stress though! Unless you have a respiratory or heart problem) in short periods of time, so it’s natural for your body to react accordingly in order to accommodate that physical stressor (ie. Heart rate up to pump more blood to tissues, respirations up to supply more oxygen). Unless you have some sort of respiratory or cardiac condition which might affect your level of activity? When I first began doing Pilates, I found myself taking breaks throughout the videos, and at times, even completely pausing the video because I was so out of breath and tired. We are all at our own level though and you have to start somewhere, so don’t feel discouraged if you feel like you have to pause the video sometimes. On the contrary, feel proud of yourself that you’re even trying! 🙂 If you keep working at it, you will find that over time you will start to last longer and longer. It does take having to push yourself at times though, so that you can build that endurance and mental strength. It’s when you push yourself past your comfort zone that you will gradually begin to see results. It’s a process that takes time and dedication, so don’t be discouraged if your results are coming slow. Instead, use those gradual bits of progress to continue to motivate you do be the best you can be. 🙂 Hope this helps and good luck to you! 😀
I was wondering if there is a vegetarian version of the 28 day rest?
Well there’s a VEGAN edition but idk if there’s a vegetarian one .. :/
The vegan version works great for vegetarians. I am a vegetarian also, so I got the vegan version. The 28 day reset has you cut out dairy, so I just allowed myself to use eggs for a protein occasionally since that was the only thing I found that would make a difference between a vegan and vegetarian version in this case.
Oh how I wish I’d have the money for this, but as an unemployed person in Finland, there’s no way :/
Amazing job girls! You look great 🙂 Keep going!
I don’t of it is already included, but van you please integrate in The monthly programs so really effective workouts To get rid of saddlebags and the cellulite in this area?
Thank you! ????
I really want to do PITT and the nutrition guide but im only in high school so my mom still makes most of my meals so would it still be effective if i did PITT and followed some of the meal plans for lunch or breakfast but not all of them? Also Congrats to everybody who participated in PITT, its super motivational, keep working hard!
Hi Jenny, I just did PIIT as I didn’t want to lose weight and I found the results were fabulous. My stamina increased and I feel much more toned all over.
I have the same issue! My mom makes dinner for me and buys all the groceries in the house not taking into account what I want. Everytime I try to talk about a meal plan like this she shuts me down immediately saying she doesn’t want to hear about it.
Are these workouts that beginners can do? I’m interested, but nervous I’d be coming into this without enough experience!
You can check out her free PIIT videos on her youtube channel (which is blogilates too :D). She has 5 different PIIT videos there for you to try out. Also, in the PIIT28 programm, almost every move has modifications that you can use, when the actual move is too difficult 🙂
There are modifications to the moves added in the eBook. I am a beginner too, and I am going to be starting Monday. Good luck if you decide to do it.
Is this program worth the money? It seems like a lot of money for only 28 days so I want to be sure it’s worth it!
I truly believe it is! Number one: YOUR health is worth $1.39 a day. Not only that, it is a program you can keep doing over and over plus Cassey is/may be adding to it as we go. While my results were nothing compared to others (due to injury & schedule, hormones, weekend away….excuses, excuses – maybe I should be Grandma Popster!) I did get some results. I am in my late 50’s and if I can see results, you are SURE to see results! I would have loved to have had the internet when I was young vs. having to pay umpteen dollars every month for a gym for Lord knows how long while Cassey practically gives it away! She gives you a win-win situation!! Where there is a will…there is always a way!!! You just need to trust in yourself! 🙂
Thank you again for the feature! Everyone did amazing! So many inspirational pictures in the #piistagram hashtag on insta! I love being part of such a great group of people!
First off, wonderful job ladies! You all look incredible and it is SO important that you feel incredible. I gave up drinking in January, and I have lost 11lbs. I am looking to get toned and feel great about my body!
I would like to join Round 2, but will it be more difficult than Round 1? Am I better off starting with Round 1 and be a round behind? Also, I don’t see a place to purchase the second round. Do I just purchase the PIIT program in general? Do you get more than one round with this?
When you purchase the PIIT28 program you get access to all the PIIT workouts & materials (videos, stretching guided/calendar/printables) & any time something new is added (for instance, round 2 includes a new ab workout & a strength training workout) it shows up in your library. You only need to purchase the program once & you can choose to start with whichever round or calendar you’d like. I just completed round 1 & I’m looking forward to round 2! Hope that helps answer your question. 🙂 feel free to message me: Insta_Jen77
Thanks so much for the clear response, Jen!
I will definitely be purchasing! Did you also get the 28 day reset? I’m a vegetarian, so I don’t necessarily want to have to do the Vegan option, but may do it if necessary.
I am so proud of every single one of us who’ve done the first round of PIIT28!
It makes me really sad how some of you guys talk about before and after pictures being photoshoped. When you trying to drag somebody down it doesn’t lift you up. It puts YOU down.
To me it is SO INSPIRING to see how someone’s body can change. My before and after picture is something I am proud of too. So when I see all of those insulting comments it feels like insulting myself too. Because we are sisters and we should support eachother, inspire and encourage. Make feel others better, happier. I hope more people will understand how important is to be kind and spread love around you instead of negativity.
I am also looking forward PIIT28 Round 2! We will run the world girls!! 🙂
I loved the first round of PIIT28! But the whole time, I kept wishing there were videos for the stretches and the dynamic warm-up because I kept feeling I wasn’t doing them right. Haha!
I am actually in awe at these results! You can tell how much happier and stronger everyone is feeling in their ‘after’ pics! Great job guys!! 😀 I’m trying to save up for this but just wanted to know if the 28 day reset guide also includes vegetarian options or would I need to get the vegan guide for that?? Xxxx
I would love to do this workout, but I don’t know if my knees can handle 45 seconds of jumping exercises. I can do them for so long before they start to bother me. Would it still be worth it to get this?
I have been working on PIIT28 for two weeks and I do the modifications. My knees can’t handle the jumping too much either. I’m hoping by the end of the 28 days I’ll have built up the strength in my tendons and small muscle groups to accomplish PIIT round 2 with all the jumps! I’ve purposely set smaller goals so I don’t hurt myself. I think the big thing is to just keep moving and have fun!
I have a weak knee (my left knee). When the exercise is to jump with one leg like single leg squat/burpee, I do a variation where I can distribute the weight in both legs. If you have weak knees and need an extra push to cardio moves, try a boxing move, some quick punches in the air and stuff. Just keep you heart rate up.
I, too, have bad knees. Had an arthroscopy on the left knee Dec. 2014. Right when I started PIIT28, my knees crapped out on a girls weekend. Seriously…crapped….out… To the point that they were swollen for 2 weeks. I modified big time. I could not do any jumping whatsoever so I modified big time. I marched where I could not jump, walked during plank jacks, did the same during donkey kicks, did my best at burpees, took everything down to low impact as much as possible, etc. Take care of your knees, wear a knee brace and most importantly, do not push it yet keep moving. You will do great! 🙂
GREAT JOB LADIES!! You look fantastic! What an inspiration you are! And the confidence you have gained is so obvious in your posture! High Five to you for sticking it, building strength, feeling empowered and inspiring others <3
So is Round 2 basically following the same workout calendar or will you be uploading a whole bunch of new workouts? Thanks 🙂
this is a bit pricey, for a nanny such as myself. but i’m very impressed with everyones results! congrats guys you all look great!
Is round 2 included for the same price of round 1? Or do you have to pay each round? Confused here…
Round 2 is included for the same price once you purchase PIIT28 1.0
I wanted to do thiso so badly, but it’s too much money for a college student. Congrats to all who were able to though!
I love you Cassey, but this isn’t like how you’ve always been. You use to be about being strong and confident, to push yourself, not just being about weight loss, and not being a sell-out. Please keep true to your roots Cassey, you don’t want to end up like Mike Chang.
I don’t know if you truly understand what PIIT28 has done for me. It gave me balance and happiness again. This is a program I strongly believe in because it’s helping me, and as you can see, it’s not about weight loss. It’s about strength building.
take a look at Cassey’s blog post from March 9, 2016 and you’ll see that you’re misguided in your assumption
I totally understand what you’re saying I’ve had that feeling about Cassey too. Its like this is becoming everything Cassey was against. What about the monthly calendar now is it a waste of time because its not piit 28 ? And is it ok to aim for a body type that looks like the one in your anti bodyshaming video ?
The last photo is obviously photo-shopped, unless Amy grew 6 inches during the 28 day challenge. Just look at the door behind her and where it hits her in both photos. Really bad photoshop job, and worse that it was still included as a “success story.”
See also Jen’s photo, not as blatantly obvious as Amy’s, but she also miraculously grew a few inches during the challenge.
If you actually look at both photos you can see that the supposed increase in height is due to difference in angle at which the photo was taken. For Amy, you can tell that she’s standing closer to the door and the photo was taken from a lower angle, which makes her look taller up against the door. Same goes for Jen’s – the after photo was taken from a lower angle, which makes her look taller. Try it out yourself if you can’t believe me.
Wish you’d actually look at the pictures logically before bashing these women and dismissing all their hard work for the past 28 days.
Thank you for saying this. Amy and I are apart of the same group on facebook (called popsters unite) and she did not photoshop that photo. She was actually starting to feel very discouraged because of all the hateful comments that she’s been getting because of that picture. And Jen uses the blogilates app, and I followed her until my tablet broke. She would never do anything like that. I loved her. She was awesome. So again, thank you for defending them and pointing out that the pictures were obviously taken at different angles. 🙂
You obviously don’t know Jen let alone how photography works! Take your nastiness elsewhere it is not needed here. We are here to build each other up not knock each other down, you should try it!
Please feel free to scroll through my Instagram account or my profile in the blogilates app. I worked my butt off for the last 28 days and to be accused of Photoshopping my progress pics is just plain silly. My before pic was taken by my husband. Since he’s taller than me the angle of the picture is different than my after picture which I had to take using my camera timer balancing my phone on a stool. That’s also why the quality in my after picture is much worse (taken with the reverse camera). I’m doing round 2 starting tomorrow & if you’d like to take my new progress pictures for me, please let me know. Maybe we can get together and do PIIT together first. 🙂
Jen, I love how you handled the false persecution. I think your results are fabulous and definitely worth showing off! Keep it going! I hope my 2nd round is as successful as your 1st now that my body knows what’s going on lol
I don’t get it…if you are such a naysayer, why are you on this site?? Cassey has done so many good things for so many people, worked HARD at it, yet people are different. That is what makes the world go around. Different results for different people, myself included. You don’t have to join in on the Cassey Love but please, take it elsewhere. It is not fair to those who busted their rear-ends to get to where they are. Don’t be hating, be PIIT’ing! <3
I think it’s just the camera angle. You can clearly see that the first photo is taken from up higher, and the second photo taken from lower. This alone would make a person look inches taller.
These hard working women should get credit for their success through Piit. The pictures are not photo-shopped and who’s you to say? The photos were taken at a different angles and that’s why she appeared a few inches taller, plus better posture could have led to false accusation of it being photo-shopped. Maybe you should think before you say such hurtful things.
NO Wendy. Just NO. None of these pics are photoshopped.
I’m sick to death of people claiming I photoshopped myself. It’s so rude and you should be ashamed to even say that. I am a REAL girl with REAL results because I worked my butt off. Please do something more productive with your time than shame others that are proud of how far they have come.
Amy, I am so proud of your results. They get me excited to do my 2nd round. My 1st round wasn’t as successful as others’ but I saw a good change on the outside, but more importantly, on the inside! Go get it!!
I wish I could do it… but I don’t have the money… : (
Hey guys! I am almost two weeks in… started late!! But that’s okay because I am loving it so far 🙂
Just wondering if you guys could offer some advice..
During the leg lifts in the warm-up exercises and even in high knees occasionally, my hip clicks when I lift my leg!
Is there a fix to this?
All the best to all you beauties!
My hips pop all the time when working out, especially on one side. I’ve talked to my coaches about it and it is totally normal! Have you tried hip strengthening excersizes? Fire hydrants are great, especially if you extend your leg out.
Don’t fret! It’s perfectly normal for your hips to have a slight pop because your hips will soon become strong and used to it. Eventually, they will stop popping 🙂
I have had the same problem on some moves. It’s strange, but I’m sure its nothing unless it hurts when it clicks.
I would love for you to do a post on metabolic damage. This is something that I have been struggling with since my eating disorder. I try to eat clean and workout everyday but I am constantly finding myself falling off the wagon because I am getting no results and it is so frustrating and discouraging.
Argh! I hate being behind everyone! I started on time but veered off course for a week when life intervened. Now I’m so behind and won’t be able to start round 2 till April 4th. I thought about starting it April 2nd but my body will need its weekly break so Monday’s a better day to keep it simple. Ah well. This will teach me patience and acceptance of things I cannot change.
Everyone’s before/after pics look so great! Truly inspiring. I can’t do the 28 Day Reset yet but I plan to starting in the summer. Good job to everyone who’s finished (or still doing) round 1 and good luck to everyone soon starting round 2!!
I had the same thing, life decided it needed my attention more than PIIT lol, but even being behind is ok, seeing everyones results and confidence are amazing and helps keep me motivated!
CASSEY! I saw someone below ask you if you can do a post on metabolic damage – this is something I have been struggling with myself and I would be SO INTERESTED to hear about your experience with this and learn more about the subject if you could pass on what you have learned along the way?! You are lovely and thank you for all your hard work! <3
OMG I love PIIT28 I can’t wait for the second round. But I’m not sure when it starts @.@
It begins April 1! Join us!!!!!
Congrats to these ladies and everyone who finished #piit28 you all rock!! I ❤ being in this awesome community of #Popsters because everyone is so positive and inspiring and motivating. I love working out because it makes me feel strong and after I’m done I feel accomplished.
GIRL POWER – who needs boys ??
Will you be able to do a blogpost on metabolic damage: the research behind it (e.g. Minnestona experiment), how you dealt with it, how to prevent it & how to fix it? Thanks so much xxxxx
Congratulations to these ladies and all the rest who made it through round 1 and have felt and seen the changes! It’s so nice to be part of such a supportive and hard-working community of strong women. Let’s keep going!
These are amazing!!! Congrats everyone!
Hi ! I was wondering if the different rounds focused on a particular part of the body, like the 1st round is focused on abs, the 2nd on thighs, and so on 🙂
THERE ARE 11 different workouts in PIIT28, each one is different and based on different body area, like abdomination, lean body, dancers legs etc! I just finished my first month yesterday and its awesome!
Thanks Jess ! I think I’m in for the next round then !
I totally get you when you say that you’ve gone through a phase where working out and eating clean wouldn’t get you results; a few times I found my body in that boat!
Hey, I wanted to know where the flat abs video or sth like that haha would be located on the piit program, ’cause I couldn’t find it =)
This will be uploaded before April 1st!
I just purchased piit28.1 and i didnt get an instant download option. I want to start today, how can i get the instant download? Plus are things being shipped too? I thought everything was online.
I have the same questions. Can someone please answer…thanks!!
hi! i have the same issue, did you use PayPal? let me know if your problem was resolved !
