Cassey, the blogger behind Blogilates, is all about motivating her readers through any means necessary. “I talk with people through my YouTube, Facebook and Twitter accounts nonstop, and it’s such a big part of who I am.” Her site is a one-stop shop for sweaty workouts, yummy meals and fun giveaways. Sounds like a perfect balance to us.
Favorite Foodie App “I think that writing down what you eat for a little while is a smart idea, and love using MyNetDiary. It helps as you’re learning more about your food. Now I know how many calories an apple has or what 4 oz. of fish looks like, so I can eyeball things and know how my body’s being nourished.”
Online Inspiration “The Blogilates community comes from all over the world, and people are constantly talking about their personal journeys. It’s so fun to make new friendships over the Internet via a common goal – getting fitter in a fun and free way!”
Workout Wonder “I love any routine that makes me really sweat! Well, except for battle ropes…I hate those. All jokes aside, I love Pilates because it helps my posture and firms my abs. I also weight train and do HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts.”

Caitlin lives the philosophy that “small efforts add up to make a big difference,” and she details those efforts three times a day over on her blog, Healthy Tipping Point. As the founder of Operation Beautiful, a self-esteem movement for young girls taking over the world by Post-Its, we’re confident this new mom will pass on super confidence skills to her son, Henry.
Goal Getter “I think about why I want to accomplish a certain goal. Choosing long-term, realistic goals that are health-focused, rather than appearance-based, keep me motivated. Looking hot and feeling sexy is great, but nothing beats being confident and truly happy.”
Get-Fit Mantra “I love this John Bingham quote: ‘The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.’”
Sweat Solution “I have to mix it up – I get so bored doing the same thing over and over again! My weekly workouts include a little pool and sidewalk time; getting outside feels so refreshing.”
