Welp, I’m pretty excited. I recently interviewed Cassey from Blogilates {!!!}. She’s created her thriving brand through her YouTube ( freeeeee!!! ) workouts, a sexy gym bag line, an award-winning blog, & her TV channel. Cassey is one productive/fit/motivated lady- I don’t know how she finds the time. Inspiration, much?

Anyway, even though her schedule is crazy she manages to make time to eat healthy & bust ass in the gym.

P.S. I’ll be buying some Trader Joe’s ‘Fat-Free Spicy Bean Dip’ ASAP. Find out why:

+ Hi Cassey! So excited to have you. Ok, so introduce yourself:

Cassey Ho: Hi my name is Cassey Ho & I am a fitness/Pilates instructor from San Francisco, California. I’m a YouTuber, creator of the format “POP Pilates,” & also a fitness blogger. Just recently my blog was named “Best Healthy Living Blog” by FITNESS Magazine! That was pretty cool. Oh! & I also design gym bags and yoga bags over for my own line of gear over at oGorgeous. Umm, ok, phew! I think this is why I don’t sleep.

+ Why Pilates?

CH: I was training for a pageant back when I was sixteen & wanted to tone up quickly. My goal was a nice, long, lean dancer-like look. So I tried Pilates & I’ve been hooked ever since!!!

+ Tell us about your amazing, free ( yes, free- no excuses! ) YouTube vids.

CH: Basically I upload new workout videos a couple times a week on my Blogilates YouTube channel along with any fitness/health Q & A’s on Blogilates TV.

+ Quick skinny trick?

CH: Eat loads of vegetables & drink tons of water!

+ Weekly workout schedule?

CH: I workout five to six times a week for about an hour to an hour & a half, plus I do a mix of weight lifting, Pilates, & cardio! I am all into StairMaster right now because it builds my butt!

+ Favorite go-to healthy food?

CH: Mini grap tomatoes dipped in Trader Joe’s ‘Fat-Free Spicy Bean Dip.’ MMMM!

+ Motivation to stay in shape?

CH: Feeling strong & having tons of energy! I like powering through new projects like The Energizer Bunny so I need to workout & eat right to do that.

+ Best beauty product?

CH: Good sleep ( << I totally agree with Cassey on this one! ).

+ Natural beauty remedy?

CH: Skin glows from the inside, so I would say nourishing your body with lots of veggies & water helps you sparkle with confidence & really helps you to look your best.

+ A secret model tip for diet and health?

CH: Reduce your sodium intake if your prepping for a shoot or an event! It bloats you.

+ Example of a day’s worth of eating?

CH: Breakfast: oatmeal, egg whites, & a banana.

Snack: almonds & some fruit.

Lunch: spinach salad with salmon, cranberries, grape tomatoes, avocado, & balsamic vinegar.

Snack: plain nonfat greek yogurt with raw sunflower seeds & raspberries.

Dinner: steamed brussel sprouts with chicken breast smothered in ‘Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce‘ & some soy sauce, side of tomato or black bean soup.

+ Quick, super easy recipe:

CHBanana pancakes! 1 banana + 2 eggs. Mash it up and place the batter on a skillet. Bam. You have pancakes!
