My Favorite Thing about Hot Body Year Round
I JUST GOT BACK HOME! I cannot believe that within the last 4 days, I’ve been in 5 states! We’ve been sleeping on planes and functioning on pure adrenaline! I’m very tired but it’s been SO COOL meeting all of you on the Hot Body Tour. There’s one more tonight in Costa Mesa for my Southern CA POPsters. I hope to see you there. You can get the free tix here.
Alrighty, so today, Monday, marks one week since Hot Body Year Round launched! We’ve done soooo well that the books were basically SOLD OUT everywhere – in stores and online! Wow, you guys. You cray.
If you’ve been waiting to get the book, it would mean the world to me if you got it today. I truly believe that if all POPsters band together at the close of the book’s first week of life, we could potentially make Hot Body Year Round a New York Times Best Seller. I mean, how AWESOME would that be!? Already we are #1 in Pilates and #1 in Exercise & Fitness!! Congrats guys!
Amazon is back in stock (thank goodness), and Barnes & Noble decided to make their third reorder – so you can get your copy from either of them! You could also check your local bookstore to support your mom & pop businesses. Thank you soooooo much for your love and your support. You don’t know how much you mean to me.
I also realized that I never actually gave a proper book review on the blog. I am so silly!! So here it is…I’m going to show you everything you’re going to get from the book.
First of all, this book took 2 years to put together. 2 years of passion, labor, and love to make sure that you get the best and most gorgeous exercise guide, cookbook and motivational journal that was ever created. Photographed from coast to coast of the United States, we went out of our way to make the glossy pages pop with color and beauty.

At first, my publisher wanted the book in black and white. I FOUGHT so hard for full color. Then everyone said I should shoot all 120 exercises inside a plain yoga studio on a white background. I said no. We’re shooting in some of the country’s most breathtaking sceneries.
None of what I did was necessary. But, I don’t do necessary. I ALWAYS go beyond what anyone expects because that’s the type of person I am. If I’m going to release a book, I am going to RELEASE A BOOK UNLIKE NO OTHER. Because you guys deserve the best. Period.
So here’s what you will get in Hot Body Year Round: your ULTIMATE exercise and nutrition guide to living a fit, happy, and healthy life while sculpting your HOTTEST body. This is the BLOGILATES BIBLE.
– 120 of my BEST total body transforming exercises
– The complete POP Pilates exercise library, fully photographed and easy to follow
– 20 full length workouts
– 40 brand new, ridiculously delicious & nutritious recipes
– 4 complete clean eating meal plans & grocery lists
– My personal daily meal plan
– Motivational letters written specifically to you
– 256 pages of full color, glossy inspiration
…plus so much more! But let’s keep it a surprise 🙂
Here are some of my fave things from the book:
My favorite workout: Muffintop Meltdown on pg. 198!
Trunk Twists x 20 taps
Shooting Star x 15 shots
Side Plank Rotator x 10 ea side
Side Plank Dips x 10 ea side
Windmill x 12

My favorite recipe: Hands down, it is Flourless Pizza with Figs and Rosemary on pg. 135!
My favorite “Note from Cassey” to you: It is titled, “Unhappy with the person I see in the mirror” on pg. 78.
You’ll appreciate all the other functional tips I give, like the basics on eating clean, how much water you should drink to stay hydrated, what being addicted to sugar can do to you, the history of Pilates etc.
You’ll also love the meal plans I have included in the book! There’s one for every season.
If you haven’t reviewed yet, please please do! That really helps me and other readers so much! Just be honest and tell me what you think.
So guys, as the first week of Hot Body Year Round’s birth comes to a close, I want to THANK YOU so much for being the most amazing, supportive friends in the world. Blogilates would not be what it is today without you. I am forever grateful.
I love you so much!
