The “Pushing Grasshopper” + Blogilates HQ!??
So I TOTALLY just invented a new POP Pilates move! I call it “The Pushing Grasshopper.” What do you think it targets?
It’s a combo of a half cobra pushup and the grasshopper! So…chest, triceps, back, and booty! It’s a QUADRUPLE threat. You’re very very welcome 🙂
This is an intense song challenge. It lasts only 3 min and 18 sec, so I added a timer for you to keep you going. Can you let me know if you like it or not? Does it distract you? Or does it keep you going?
Wow! So many pretty colors! Guess what guys? If you’ve been following my Snapchat…you now know…that we are building out Blogilates Headquarters!!!! OMG I can’t believe that this day is actually happening! I dreamt about running my own company when I was a little girl…and now…it’s becoming a reality? Wow. Work hard, live passionately, and be humble guys. Amazing things will happen.
Oh yeah…and what’s Blogilates HQ without pink paint? MUAHAHAHAHA. I feel sorry for any boys that will work there. Just kidding. No I am not sorry. They will embrace it 😛
By the way, if any of you are in the LA area and are graphic designers or patternmakers/samplemakers, I would love to hear from you. We’re hiring 🙂 Please send your cover letter and resume to [email protected]
This past weekend was Mother’s Day. Did you have a chance to spend some time with your mom? I hope you did! I unfortunately could not as I was working on the office playing interior designer and contractor project manager. I am really really enjoying this whole furniture shopping thing though. I love seeing how everything comes together aesthetically. It’s soooo fun!
Now, a note on my mom. My mom is a woman who exemplifies STRENGTH. In 1975, she fled the terror of the Vietnam War with her little brother to find freedom and an uncertain, better future. With no money, no food, and no water for 7 days straight on a tiny boat that got raided by pirates – the only thing keeping her alive was hope. Sometimes you have to do things that don’t make sense or in this case, things that risk your life. You can’t predict the future but you can set yourself up for success. Everyday I’m awed by my mom. She’s extremely selfless, hard working, and keeps pouring love even when she’s exhausted. Happy Mother’s Day to my mommy who risked everything to give me and my sister a chance to succeed. I love you so much. OH MAN! Did you see this yet!? My baby sis Jackelyn surprised me with a plush toy of myself from Hot Body Year Round!! Hahahaha! They even got the booty shorts and sports bra right! If you look real close, they even gave me little boobs. Hahahaha. Love my sis so much. Thank you Jackelyn for getting me this toy Cassey. You are the best! This is literally the most unique gift I have ever gotten! The toy is made by this company called “Budsies” and they take kids’ drawings and turn them into real life toys. What a creative business! I love it! Also! I will be in the DC area (my 1st time!) this coming weekend for a POP Pilates training and to do a meetup! You must come! It is at the 24 Hr Fitness in Annapolis, MD on Sunday May 17th! Come early…bring your own mat. If you’re under 18, bring a guardian to sign you off. If you’re over 18, you need an ID to get in! I will do a meet and greet after class too. I can’t wait to see you! And if you’re interested in getting POP Pilates certified, please sign up here. Being a group fitness instructor is the best choice I’ve ever made. It gave me everything I have today. Plus. it gave me you guys 🙂 AHH! And more news! I will be in LONDON for Beautycon in a couple weeks! I haven’t been back in 3 years!! I literally cannot wait to see you guys again!!!Also…I want to do a POP Pilates class with you all but I have no idea where. Anyone have any suggestions or connections to a venue? I know some of you said Hyde Park but I don’t know where I can get speakers, a stage, and a microphone so you can all hear the music! Let me know – I would really appreciate it 🙂 Okie dokie – that’s a lot of announcements. Hope you’re having an AMAZING start to #noMaybes May. If you haven’t started, it’s ok – grab the Beginner’s Calendar here or print the May Calendar here. It’s never too late to start. Just start.
