did a ton of those but you did a fabulous job yes and now it is giveaway time are you ready okay so let's talk about why this is my favorite things for December so this fit fig has really helped me through the 12-week new body makeover and you guys are doing amazing I've seen all your pictures on Instagram your tweets on Twitter keep going hard so what this does is it actually tracks your calories how many steps you're taking you know make sure you're stepping about 10000 times a day that's about 4 miles and also tracks your sleep patterns and for me it's been really cool seeing how restless I am versus how I'm actually sleeping because the quality of your sleep actually helps your muscles recover so you really really do need to pay attention to how you're eating how you're sleeping and how hard you are training if you truly want to change up that physique another really cool thing about this is that you can actually wear it in the shower so seriously I've been wearing this Fitbit with me all day long I'm going to wearing it with my dress I mean seriously I don't want to miss a moment it's so cool to see like when your most active during the day when you're not active and kind of see patterns that you can really see how to make the best changes for your body and one of the best features I think is that you can sync this up to your phone or your computer so that you can see how hard you're working I really love checking it right after you do a really intense workout and really seeing that those bars spike up I know I had some other devices before where I'd have to actually wait till the end of the day after school or work and plug it into my computer and then see how many calories ever no no this is like instant satisfaction so how do you win with these babies well let me tell you you have Instagram course deal everyone does so first I want you to follow me at Blogilates and then take a picture of one of your old accessories that needs an upgrade hashtag VZ fitness then I will pick a winner next week and then if you want to see the Fitbit flex you can actually go to your Verizon Wireless retails store or go to Verizon Wireless comm to see more of the features and really guys it's so awesome so I hope you enjoyed this video happy holidays and I will see you next week for another cocktail dress workout until then keep working hard on that 12 week new body makeover and I'll see you later bye see you to Graham

About the author


  1. Second video of week 2 day 2 done

    its not easy to keep it up but I'm still continue after take a pause every workout

  2. So I'm a newbie here trying to follow the 28 day beginner calendar and this video is on day 9. I found all of the crunches extremely difficult to do and found myself straining wayyy too much in my neck. Any suggestions on how to modify them so I can focus more on my core rather than trying to not strain my neck?

  3. I stopped this video like 3 minutes before she finished because my back hurts from doing the last move. I know it is because I don´t suck my bellybuttn in but I just can´t do it right now 🙁 Does,´t matter because it was a great workout even though I did the second move differently because I am not strong enough to lift my body and legs so I kept the legs in the air!

  4. if this helps anyone:

    25 of the first exercise (repeat on both sides), about 20 of the second exercise (repeat on both sides )

  5. Hi Cassie, I did this video as part of Day 9 of the beginners calendar and I didn't find there was enough instruction for me to properly follow along. I think I need more reminders about form. Is there a different video you can recommend that go through these moves but slower? Thanks, you do great work!

  6. More like my back is gonna die rip. Any suggestion of a good substitute for crunches for people with lower back pain? I want to get stronger to hopefully help fix my back, but any crunch -> strain

  7. I love Cassey and I have been a supporter of hers since 2012, but I feel that her older videos are more challenging and more effective for me with all of the reps. I like it more than the timer, which is crazy to say because you do more and never know when it will end.

  8. This workout is so impossible for me to do ??? I struggled all the way and even if I stopped so many times I didn't give up so I hope one day I will do it and think "oh that's easy"

  9. I had to do the beginners hip twist for the whole time and they still kicked my ass! I was dying and then suddenly got a burst of energy in the middle, then was dying again by the end!!!
