During the past two weeks, I discovered Pinterest and have become addicted. I have been told I am a little late getting on the Pinterest bandwagon, but better late than never, right? Anyway, while cruising around the site, I came across the page of Cassey Ho, a Pilates and fitness instructor based in California. When I clicked on her Pinterest profile, the link to her website “Blogilates” caught my attention. The name was so cute-sy, I knew I had to check it out. And I’m so glad I did!
Despite the cute name, Blogilates means business (and burn!). Cassey’s blog is composed of workout videos (broken into the categories of POP Pilates, POP Cardio, and POP Hits), healthy food recipes, printable exercise and food charts, and a number of other resources to help you get in shape and stay motivated. I actually did two of her cardio videos for the first time earlier tonight and I was beat! I had a particular tough time doing a complete push-up, then jumping up immediately after! But what I liked most about the video was how it was not the typical, cheesy workout video. She did it all so naturally and admitted to hating certain exercises, which I appreciated. No one wants a robotic workout instructor!
Cassey’s real attitude, combined with her energy and motivating words, are the reasons for her success. She has been featured in magazines such as Cosmopolitan and SHAPE! I definitely suggest you hop on her blog or Youtube channel (or both!). You will not be disappointed, but rather, feel extra motivated! 😉
Take care and good luck!
