If there was one book I was most excited about being released so far this year…it would have to be this one! I’ve been watching Cassey Ho on youtube & blog for years on her channel Blogilates.com & honestly am inspired. Cassey Ho’s Hot Body Year-Round: The POP Pilates Plan to Get Slim, Eat Clean, and Live Happy Through Every Season is the full title & it actually released on my 26th birthday, April 7th, 2015. Normally I don’t remember book release dates but this year was kind of a turning point for me. While normal people (I use that phrase oh-so-loosely) tend to stress when they turn 30, 35, 40, 45, etc. it is a running joke that my mom & I tend to stress more at 31, 36, 41, 46, etc. So this was perfect timing for an inspirational book about healthy living!
This is your ULTIMATE exercise and nutrition guide to living a fit, happy, and healthy life while sculpting your HOTTEST body.
– 120 of my BEST total body transforming exercises
– The complete POP Pilates exercise library – fully photographed and easy to follow
– 20 full length workouts
– 40 brand new, ridiculously delicious & nutritious recipes
– 4 complete clean eating meal plans & grocery lists
– My personal daily meal plan
– Motivational letters written specifically to you
– 256 pages of full color, glossy inspiration
…plus so much more! But let’s keep it a surprise 🙂
Like Cassey herself, this book is spunky, fun, & just a joy to read. This didn’t feel like work & actually was something I looked forward to reading as soon as I got it & nights after. With tons of pictorials, I found everything Cassey described really easy to follow as well. As far as if I’d read this again, I think that is a big part of how this book is set up. Because recipes & exercises are specifically grouped into seasons, this is a book you’ll want to check back in with her tips & tricks every few months to refresh. A very smart take on a healthy lifestyle since foods & different types of exercises are seasonal. Want to find out more? Check out Cassey Ho’s Hot Body Year-Round book here on Amazon.
