Blogilates is an interactive fitness website that features monthly workouts, healthy recipes and a shop for motivational (and fabulous) active wear and accessories. If you’re looking to get healthy and fit for the new year without the hassle of a gym, look no further. Blogilates is a positive community where users share their fitness journeys while uplifting one another.
Blogilates was established by Cassey Ho, a certified fitness instructor and the creator of POP Pilates. What is POP Pilates, you ask? On her website, Ho describes her workouts as a “more upbeat style of Pilates.”
Despite her success, Ho never anticipated a career in fitness. She originally had dreams of becoming a fashion designer, but instead, graduated from Whittier College with a biology degree to fulfill her parents’ wishes of her pursuing a career in medicine (sound familiar to anyone?). After college, Ho decided to follow her dreams and created a YouTube channel that featured at-home workouts, including POP Pilates.
Ho also put her fashion design skills to work by designing stylish yoga bags and active wear, which she also models. Her clothes display fun, empowering messages such as “Train like a beast, look like a beauty” and “Train insane or remain the same.”
Eventually, creating videos and interacting with fans on social media turned into a career. Through Blogilates, she inspired thousands of fans to live a healthier and happier lifestyle. Ho was named Best Healthy Living Blogger of 2012 and ranked #2 in Fitness Magazine’s Most Influential Online Personality. Most importantly, Ho loves what she does and she adores her fans.
“My job is my passion, and my passion is my job,” says Ho on her website. “I feel so lucky to be able to encourage you to eat healthier, train harder, and live happier doing what I enjoy.”
