  • blogilates says:

    Hi! I reuploaded this video because alot of you mentioned that the music was too loud in the original version! Want to make sure you can hear me, especially in this video since I explained alot of the moves in this Level 1 workout!

  • AnimeFreak792 says:

    Thank you for re-uploading! I just finished with the other video and was about to comment how loud it was. Thank you! ❤

  • Sam Elle says:

    idk if I’m the only one but I prefer doing workouts around noon / middle of the day and it gets me over the midday slump so this was uploaded at the PERF time!!!!

  • Louve says:

    Hi Cassey! I’m so proud to say that I got my boyfriend to do the July training with me 😀 ! He’s suffering hahaha (me too btw). Lots of love!

  • theFitty says:

    *THIS WAS LEVEL ONE?!* I’ve been doing your workouts for 14 years and this was a good toughie! 😉😜

  • Alaias Bertrand says:

    LOVE ab workouts like these! Remind me of a few ab workouts I have on my channel as well, thanks for this!

  • Louise Campbell says:

    Perfect! I was doing the Ab Challenge this morning and realised my pilates moves were not quite right and was worried i was going to hurt myself! x

  • Emo Tea says:

    I’ve really been in such a workout/diet slump. I had been doing well last month and lost 7 pounds but then birthday parties came up and I quit my weight loss journey. I’m so glad you are doing this series, it has encouraged me to 🎵Get my head in the game 🎵 😁❤

  • Sarah S. says:

    Ugh I love how you reuploaded it because of the music issue. Although it makes sense to reupload, it just shows how dedicated you are, and how you care! Not gonna do it again 🤣 but thank you anyway

  • Noor M says:

    Casseyyyyy you look SO good in this vid, is it just me🤩🤩🤩

  • Morgan Ulrich says:

    I like the concept of this! I always write down what I can’t do in a workout so I can return and try to do more reps or a harder version later. Can’t wait to challenge myself to do each level perfectly 💪
