POP Pilates DVD – behind the scenes!

POP Pilates DVD – behind the scenes!

Hello POPsters!!!!

As you all know by now, the POP Pilates DVD was filmed yesterday. Sorry I did not talk about it but I felt like if I did that I would jinx it. I remember saying that for my Australia trip, and when I got there, mother nature was being very mean and would not let the filming run its course. Filming outdoors isn’t as simple as you would think…

Anyway! I want to share some pics with you from yesterday!

This was my cam crew. Look familiar? It’s Daddio and Mommio! When it came down to it, I felt like it was better to invest in learning new skills together while working with more advanced equipment. I felt like it was a waste of money to hire a crew that may not even shoot it in the style that I wanted – so the parentals stepped in and took charge 🙂 I’ll be editing the footage myself as I always do. There’s just a personality that shines through with the slightest editing techniques. It’s a Ho Family Production!

I am so happy my parents now know what YouTube is and ask me  if I’m gonna Instagram the protein pancake I just made. They are getting educated in social media and I love it!

A shot of me side planking from the shoot!

Taking a break to check emails, facebook, and YouTube…(I am lost without my laptop!)

Here’s me looking out from the balcony of the house overlooking the San Francisco Bay Area. For those of you wondering, no this is not my house…I wish it was though!

Attempting to side plank, but it looks like a break dance move.

And finally, I wanna take this moment to say HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to my dad who according to this pic is #1 and I’m #2….Oh jeez…I told him to hold up a peace sign but he had other messages he wanted to portray. Hahahah.

It’s been quite a full circle with my parents. If you guys have read my About Me, you’d know that my parents wanted me to be a doctor really badly back when I was in college. I ended up graduating with honors in Biology but when it came down to it, I chose to veer from the medical path and it really upset them. I will talk more about the actual story on my second blog when the time comes to start that. Anyway, things were really rocky, like really really, but today our relationship has healed. It took time and understanding from both sides, but now, we are much much better!

So thank you parents for filming my DVD…without you I’d have POPsters yelling for days why I haven’t made one yet! And thank YOUUU POPsters for pushing me consistently! This video is for YOU! I made it super good. Jam packed with all of your fave moves. I know you will love it! In fact, you’ll love it so much that you’ll DIE.

Just kidding. But really – it is THAT hard. I died after filming the 1 hour workout.

But hey, that’s how we do here on Blogilates! You gotta TRAIN INSANE or remain the same right?!

Have a fab weekend and do something good for your dad! Love you guys! Get ready for an INNER THIGH Challenge on late Sunday/early Monday. What song? You’ll find out 🙂

<3 Cassey

    When is you DVD coming out? I would like to know because if its out now, I need to buy it. Working out with my laptop isn’t working out so well. A DVD would make it super easier. Thanks!

  2. Lauren says:

    Gosh Cassey, you would have been an amazing doctor and touched so many lives but because you followed your heart you have touched so many more. You have made countless people healthy, motivated and as a result saved more people than ever possible I am sure!

    Doctors are wonderful and treat us when we are sick but YOU treat and prevent! Prevention is the best treatment ever right?!

    All the way from New Zealand, thanks so much ^.^ I feel stronger, healthier and prouder every day 🙂 Hope you got that rest you have been hanging out for!

    Hey Cassey, congradulations on your DVD. I’m definetely gonna buy it..can’t wait to do the whole hour in your pleasant, motivating company. I’ve been working out with you for about a year now and I never get tired of your videos, even the older ones, but love it that you always come up with new ones!

    How exciting! Even more so that you get to work with your parents. Seriously there is no one who will care more about your work than they do. 🙂 I cannot wait for the DVD! Congratulations!

    Hi Cassey

    I absolutely love your workouts and i am super excited that you have now done DVD, just hope we will be able to get it in the UK. I know you are always asking for feedback so i would like to request MORE Pop Cardio and Pop Kicks Videos as i really enjoy mixing them in with your Pop Pilates routines.

    I wonder what you will be selling on QVC? You said your DVD was coming out in about a month and that you would be on QVC in about a month..hmmmm. Also, when are you going to be on QVC? I want to know when to watch or when you will be on. I might have to work when you are on so I want to make sure I can get on my phone and see what you are selling if I have to.

  9. Julia says:

    When/where can we buy the DVD?? I can’t WAIT to add it to my collection…it’ll most likely become the centerpiece 🙂

  10. Will you DVD be available on itunes??? Also I just started working out to your videos, I hurt everyday but they are so much fun, and I am seeing a difference already 🙂

    OMG that is sooo cute your parents helped you with the filming. They’re adorable! I’m so excited for the DVD! 🙂 Also, can I just say that if that’s your parent’s house it looks amazinggg! lol

  12. Leanne says:

    So cool how you’re filming a DVD with the help of your parents! I love what you’re doing and I can’t tell you enough –> you got me back into loving Pilates so I thank you for that 😀 <3

  13. Martina says:

    I’m really looking forward to the dvd! But i think you should make a downloadable dvd somehow, so it would be so much easier for us internationals to get it sooner, and don’t have to worry about shipping, and if the dvd player plays it and stuff! 🙂 I hope you consider! Thank you Cassie! You rock! 🙂

  14. pcvolunteer says:

    Cassie, I just wanted to say thank you for your amazing work. I’m a peace corps volunteer and usually in my city its too hot, too cold or too polluted to exercise outside at least 75% of the year. I don’t know what I would do without your videos, they make it possible for me to decompress from the stress of service. You’re great, thanks so much!

  15. Janine says:

    We can’t wait for your DVD in Europe, too. Hopefully, there will be some way to order it frome here.

    Have a nice weekend!

    1. Emma says:

      Yes, I agree! Cassey – you have to make a region 2 DVD! Your Region 1’s won’t work here in Europe! Don’t forget us!!

    2. Emma says:

      Yes, I agree with Janine! Cassey – you have to make a region 2 DVD! Your Region 1’s won’t work here in Europe! Don’t forget us!!

  16. I love that your parents filmed the DVD with you! It looks like a good one – can’t wait to hear when it’s finished and will be released!!

  17. Vanessa says:

    Aww, that’s like the sweetest thing ever to have your parents as camera crew!
    Thank you for sharing some behind the scenes pics with us.

    I know this dvd is going to be amazing and can’t wait to buy it next month if all goes well with the editing stuff 🙂

  18. Kat says:

    That’s so sweet of your parents to help out like that 🙂 I bet it was a fun thing to learn and practice together as a family!

    I have had a similar issue with my father too. I have just finished (English) college – so senior high school year for you 🙂 and was all set to go on to study at university. Except 6 months ago I decided that I didn’t want to go and my real passion lies in Makeup Artistry, so I researched the best training schools and applied for a place on a course at one of them. My Dad was really upset with me for a while too but in the end he learned to accept it luckily. It’s awful knowing you’ve disappointed your parents, but you can’t spend your whole life trying to please them if you aren’t happy yourself! What swayed them in the end was knowing that I would only be going to university to please them, and I would have felt unhappy there knowing what I REALLY wanted to do.
    Best wishes, can’t wait to see how the DVD turns out!

  20. tingtinging says:

    Hi Cassey! My coworker referred me to your blog (she was also on your highschool tennis team!). I just tried out bb2 and your calves workout videos and loved it. I can’t wait till your dvd comes out. 🙂

  21. Selina says:

  22. Such lovely shots, and that house is ammaaaaazing!!! hah! And I’m so so so happy for you and your family…I know how difficult it is when you do something not necessarily bad but still “against” your family’s will. It’s great that now they’re actually HELPING you! 🙂

  23. Sarah says:

    First I’d like to say your father is the cutest ever!!!! Also, I have been diagnosed with scoliosis in my upper back, resulting in a slight hunch back. :/ I was wondering if you could do a video to strengthen the upper back, shoulders, and lats… For better posture! My abs are nice and strong but my shoulders are so weak! Thank you cassey. Ur workouts are amazing!!!!!

  24. Melissa says:
