I've loved Blogilates for a couple of years now, but honestly, there are those times where you're just not in the mood to workout with the videos. That's why I was pretty excited when Cassey announced that she was writing a book with workouts in it. I think that's great both for days where someone would just rather follow along with the book than a video and as a way for new people to discover Pop Pilates.
I also love that there are recipes included within the book. I haven't tried any of those yet, but I want to. Some of them look so good!
I would recommend this book to someone who was maybe interested in Pop Pilates but not sold on the workout video format of Blogilates. This might be a good starting point for them instead. If you already follow Blogilates, I still think you may enjoy having this around just as another option to the videos sometimes. The entire book is well put together, and I enjoyed the little bits of inspiration that Cassey had written throughout the book.
