Working out often becomes the passion of some people and they fall in love with it. One such person is YouTube star, Cassey Ho who became a celebrity due to her extraordinary concept of Blogilates. Here are the details of how she created this popular method, her advice on workouts for her fans and her exact diet plan. Her struggle with issues like body image and her experience with an eating disorder are also explored.
Why and How Blogilates was created?
The fitness fanatic told New Beauty that Blogilates is a combo of two things she loves most, blogging and Pilates. Blogilates came to existence when she posted a POP Pilates workout on YouTube for 40 students. Fortunately, the video got viewed by thousands of people from all over the world. The viewers were asking for more videos via comments so she decided to give them more by posting more. Since then, there has been no looking back.
All about POP Pilates
The video blogger says that Pilates is like a dance, people do on a mat because it is choreographed to Top 40 music. It is among the equipment-free workout methods that ensure that a person gets a lean dancer’s body and a rock solid core. The great thing about this workout method is that it works for everyone, be it a stay at home mom or a working professional. It suits men and women both. It is also great for every person who is a fitness buff or a person who has never done any exercises in the past. This workout makes people stronger while giving them the opportunity to have some fun.
Half Hour Workout
For people who are always in a hurry, the diva suggests a half an hour workout. You should go for a 7 minute 10 second PIIT workout that needs to be done 4 times for a total of about 28 minutes and 40 seconds. She has developed a method called PIIT28 that is a combo of high-intensity cardio exercises and strengthening POP Pilates moves. This routine can also be done in a short amount of time and one can reap major fat burning as well as muscle-building benefits from it.
Workout Advice for Fans
For people who wish to start off with their workout routine, Ho wants them to find a workout they love. She says that it’s very important to find a workout you love as it helps you to look forward to it rather than considering exercise to be a chore. In her opinion, fitness is all about something that is fun and motivating rather than being dreadful or boring. After you have decided on a workout you love, you need to schedule it in your daily life. It can be done by adding them to your daily planner. You must give them equal importance as you would to a business meeting and never skip them because you consider them less important.
Eating Healthily and Working Out Regularly
Exercise and diet are interrelated in a unique way. The fitness enthusiast likes to eat healthy because it helps her get energy and she works out to make herself feel good. She says that every person should find a joy in exercising and nourishing his / her body. Otherwise, he or she won’t be able to stick to it for long.
