Why We ❤:
There are so many reasons we love Cassey Ho. From her various workout videos that guarantee a great core workout, style tutorials, and deliciously healthy recipes—there’s indeed something for everyone.
And if you’ve ever wondered how often to change your workout routine, when’s the best time to work out, or even how often you should workout for your specific fitness goals, Cassey created a series of easy-to-use custom fitness calendars
to help you stay on track and hit certain goals. The calendars are a great optino for those of us who need a little extra help in scheduling our workouts.
What’s more, Cassey has taken her entrepreneurial spirit and recently launched her very own line of activewear called PopFlex
. We love the cute sports bras, light and airy feeling tie-dyed fabrics, and seemingly endless combinations of mix 'n match ensembles. In Ho's own words, her products are made “to have the highest degree of quality at a price point that will not barricade women from enjoying top notch, high-tech fabrics and artistic design.” Cute and affordable? It's almost too good to be true.
It's inspiring to see all that she's achieved in such little time and that's exactly why she's our Fitness Star of The Week.
