My Favorite Thing about Hot Body Year Round

My Favorite Thing about Hot Body Year Round


Hey guys!

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!

#1 in exercise

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.


 Boston, Massachusetts


Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah


 Malibu, California

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:

winter workout

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

Hip Twists in Plank x 20 taps


 My favorite recipe: Hands down, it is Flourless Pizza with Figs and Rosemary on pg. 135!

journal entry

My favorite “Note from Cassey” to you: It is titled, “Unhappy with the person I see in the mirror” on pg. 78.

eating lean 101

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.

spring meal plan

You’ll also love the meal plans I have included in the book! There’s one for every season.

Those are just a few of the things that I want you to see from the book. If you want to see what other POPsters think, check out the 5 star reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

book review

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!

    The book is great and everything, but I still haven’t gotten my tote bag. I’m a bit iffy about it because I could have waited for my paycheck before purchasing it.

  2. Rachel says:

    I love this book! It filled with tons of healthy and helpful tips and tricks, recipes and workouts! I love it! However, I never received my tote bag (I preordered the book). I got the book in April and it’s now the end of May, and still no tote =( What happened?

    1. Steph says:

      No, I never received mine either, bit annoyed about it as I haven’t found a way to contact anyone about it. I was going to wait until payday [which was after the release date] to buy the book, but decided to do it before [and be a bit short on cash for a little bit] because of the bag.

  3. ATC says:

    Hey Cassey!
    I got your book about three days ago and I absolutely love it! It’s so motivating and the workouts are so much fun! I’m a new POPster and I’m really enjoying myself! You are so inspiring and your enthusiasm is amazing! You help me to keep going through the workouts!
    Pls pls pls pls PLS come to Canada someday! You have soooooo many POPsters there!
    Thank you for everything!!!!!

  4. Melanie says:

    Hi Cassey! I got your book and love it! I do have one question about the workouts. I am not doing the beginner workout but will be doing the intermediate one. It says for example “pick 4 abs workouts”- does that mean I pick 4 throughout the whole book mixing up the seasons and do those? Each workout looks to have between 5-7 moves. Are these available in a video so I can do them with you? One thing I love is doing them with you because your passion is so infectious that I actually am motivated to finish (so thank you).
    Anyway, I just wanted to clarify so that I can make sure I am following the workout schedule correctly. Thanks for all you do!

  5. Rebecca says:

    I had the same issue as others who pre-ordered your book but never received the tote bag. (Great job BTW. Can’t wait to try out some of these delicious-looking recipes). I am also wondering how to find out if it was just lost in the mail or if i will ever get it.

    I ordered mine today!
    I’ve been following you for a while now and doing your workouts on and off as my motivation comes and goes. And I have to say it is so refreshing to see someone like you in the fitness industry. Thanks for being such an inspiration and ambassador for body confidence and happiness! =]

  7. Rita Falcão says:

    Hey Cassey! I finally got your book but I din’t get my tote bag…. I pre-order the book…..

  8. RosebudSpring says:

    Hi Cassey,
    after seeing your last videos I really had the need to write you.
    I’m sorry for all the hate you’re exposed to. Please don’t let the negativity of frustrated people turn you down 🙂 The only thing to do with haters is to have compassion for their gutless anonymous comments and the depressed lifes they are living.

    Keep your perfekt work(outs) up! You’re a great inspiration. Stay positive 🙂

    Thank you SO much for all your healthy and positive advices!
    You are really beautiful in any kind of way 🙂

    Cheers from Germany

  9. Patricia says:

    Hi Cassey! I would like to know if the book will be translated into Spanish. It would be great because I don’t control English so much, especially technical words. Thanks!!!

  10. Camilla says:

    Hi, can anyone help me? I need the password for the April workout calendar. I already signed up, but I haven’t received an e-mail with the password 🙂

  11. Hello Cassie,

    I just wanted to let you know that your website has blessed me. I appreciate the information, workouts, and recipes. Since following your tips and routines I have lost weight in only a month and firmed up a lot, which normally would have taking a longer time for me. Keep up the great work!!! I am praying for you and your success in life.

    Thank you,

  12. Lauren says:

    Cassey!, this book is my holy grail 🙂 It’s SO pretty and so detailed. When I start the 8 week hot body “diet”, I’m going to use your book to guide me through it. I want to thank you for putting so much effort and thought into it. I’m sure all of us POPsters are very grateful. Anyways I love you to the moon and back, and you are such an inspiration. Love you <3

  13. Patricia says:

  21. S. says:

    I love the book! It’s beautiful. I bought a copy for my phone, too. I’m so glad you fought for colour: it totally paid off! My immediate impression when I flipped through your book for the first time was how vibrant it was. It just overflows with energy and positivity. Your workouts, recipes, and advice have been so helpful to me, and I can’t thank you enough, Cassey! Here’s hoping for even more awesome sales!

  22. Lily says:

    VERY proud of you, Cassey! Even though I don’t know you in person I feel like you deserve everything you have worked for so hard!

    There’s a gazillion of us having your back, always!!

  23. Sunny says:

    Dear Cassey,

    I know what you are going through. No matter what some people are always going to be mean. Please do not cry. We all love you. You have been an inspiration for me to change my lifestyle and be a better person. I hope so see so much more of you in the years to come. Love from Nepal 🙂

  24. Cassandra says:

    SO SAD! The book is so beautiful and everything I would want in a book!!! I had it for all of 15 minutes after it got delivered to my work AND I SPILLED MY COFFEE on it. Really debating on getting a new one just because I want it to stay beautiful 🙁

    Love you Cassey thank you for all your effort into make this book! <3

  25. Monica says:

    Loving my new book! Just came in the mail today❤️❤️❤️ I pre ordered in March but I never received the tote bag, anyone know where I can get one?! So excited to keep up on this fast track to success and strength

  26. Marion Sauter says:

    Hey Cassey,
    Your lastest video made me sad. I’ve been following you since 2012 and you are such a positive and inspiring person. Don’t let anyone take that from you. I actually like that you are a “normal” Woman. I am a teacher and I See many girls with issues regarding their body and it is just horrible seeing them starve themselves. I Love your Workouts. They make me feel Goodland happy. 🙂
    All the best for whatever you r Doing!


  27. I love this Cassie, you are so inspirational! I can’t wait to pick it up. I think the thing that sets you apart is that you have such a unique take on fitness and food hacks…totally my style!!!

  28. Lauren says:

    I cant’ wait to get my copy!

  29. Kathy says:

    my copy of your book has arrived!! It is awesome, Cassey! I didn’t expected it so soon because amazon said it wouldn’t arricve before April 20th. Still can’t believe it that it’s now in my hands. You did such a wonderful job with it <3

  30. Vilma says:

    I haven’t bought it yet because I need to save money right now but wait until I get some.. Whoo! I’m going to order that book and I know already that I’m going to love it more than (almost) anything. 🙂

  31. Jamie says:

    I am absolutely loving the book! It’s so full of inspiration and workouts that will keep me from ever getting tired of my routine! THANK YOU!

  32. Black and white? Wtf, was she high that day? No no no, I LOVE all these colorful photos taken in such amazing sceneries. They are beautiful, you’re beautiful and it makes the book so inspirational and lovely.
    Cassey, you are so motivating and a true inspiration. I have been following your workouts for 3 months now, not because I want to lose weight but because I want to be the best version of me. I’m not eating 100 % clean and because of my non-existing weight problem I do eat more than one YOLO meal per week but your chapter about eating clean and healthy was so inspiring that I thought about it and I actually eat more clean food than I thought. And I have made some changes to eat a little more clean.

  33. lisa says:

    I’ve been watching your youtube videos for years now and its amazing how much you have achieved since the start! Your so inspiring and motivating and I absolutely can’t wait to check out your book!!! <3

  34. Megan says:

    Still hate that you didn’t even come close to the South East for a meeting. Sucks that we got left out!

  35. Justine says:

    Hi Cassey ! I just wanted to order your book but it is out of stock in Amazon France !! 🙂
    I have to wait to have this on my hands <3
    Love xxxx

  36. Jenny Eklund says:

    I’m still waiting eagerly everyday here in Finland to get my copy! Today I got the tote and am so happy. Soon, soon!

    1. Vilma says:

      OH MY GOD! I wasn’t excepting any Finnish Popsters here! I thought me and my 3 best friends + few other friends were few of the very little amount of Finnish Popsters. 😀

      1. Emma says:

        Another Finn over here!!!

        1. Judit says:

          And another one 🙂 Moi 🙂

  37. Franziska says:

    Hi Cassey,
    I follow you since I found you on pintetest two weeks ago. I started your beginner workout and today I’m at day 13. I recognise the change of my body within a few days, so I bought your book yesterday. Here in Germany it is available via Amazon with delivery on the next Day (thanks Amazon for that).
    You are such a powerfull and inspiring woman, thanks Cassey for pushing me over my limits to get in shape for my wedding dress. I tried so many things the last year and nothing worked.
    Thanks for that

  38. Michela says:

    Hy Cassey! I’m still waiting for my copy from the book depository, but…I couldn’t wait and I also purchased the ebbok version on google play! What didi you do to me!?? I love your story at the beginning of the book, you truly deserve what you have now! Thank you!! <3

  39. Two years – you go girl!! That’s so inspiring. I am thinking of writing an e-book for my blog – it is nice to see that it takes a while to get something good!!

  40. Daniela says:

    Yay i finally got the book, but it didnt come with the tote bag! Is that coming separately? I ordered when you first announced the book..and filled out the form you had on the website..
    I LOVE THIS BOOK, i LOVE the tips, and recipes, aaaand those gorgeous photos!!

  41. Anna says:

    I have been following you for around two years and I remember you talking about the book in the development stage! I am so proud of you for your accomplishment and I loved meeting you in Dallas!! It was a dream come true! I love you Cassey!

  42. I absoutely love how much work you out into your book cassey, even fighting with your publisher. Will you write a book solely backed on motivstion, inspiration, personal stories and self empowerment one day? I feel I am in need of those things most because I can also rely on your YouTube videos for workouts.

  43. Eliza says:

    Ah I can’t wait for my copy to arrive! Book Depository haven’t shipped it yet but I will wait. This just made me even more excited (if that was possible)!

    1. Ana says:

      Hi Eliza!! I’m waiting my copy too from Book Depository. Did your status order say “awaiting publication”?? I’m starting to worry since the book is published and my order hasn’t changed….
      Thank you!! 😀

      1. Mary says:

        Hello! I’m waiting for mine from Book Depository too – mine has the same status as yours Ana :/
        I have received my tote though, 2 days ago 🙂

        1. Judit says:

          For me it is the same too… but i got my tote too. I hope we get our books 🙂

          1. Mary says:

            I emailed them to ask about it, they said they had some delays getting stock from their suppliers 🙁 buuuut mine’s now been dispatched 😀
            So hopefully that means yours has too! (or will be soon)

  44. tara says:

    Hello Cassey, i recently found out about your workout videos not too long ago and I loved them. They are so great. I am so grateful for your videos and recipes. The book is fabulous!! Very beautiful. Thank you!

  45. Cassie says:

    Cassey, I love you! I’ve been following you for over five years and I was so happy when I got your book and tote! You’ve inspired me so much on my journey and I cannot thank you enough!
