POP Pilates® is finally in Toronto!

The best workout is the one you love. If you don’t like something, you won’t do it.  Ask yourself: what makes you enjoy a workout?

Is it killer moves that burn, but you can’t help but love anyway? Is it addictive music that makes everything just a bit more fun? Or is it an uplifting community that encourages and pushes you to do your best?

POP Pilates delivers all that and more. It is more than a fun effective workout. POP Pilates is about positivity, friendship, and striving to be the best version of yourself.

Created by YouTube’s #1 fitness instructor Cassey Ho, POP Pilates® is a total body, equipment-free workout that sculpts a rock solid core and strong lean muscles to your favourite Top 40 hits.

What is POP Pilates?

POP Pilates® is an incredible fusion of ab-chiseling and total body defining moves choreographed to pumping Top 40 music. This intense (and fun!) mat-based workout challenges students to rhythmically flow from one exercise to the next, developing a rock solid core while leaving no muscle untouched. This format takes classical Pilates to the next level like you’ve never seen before!

POP Pilates® was developed by the #1 fitness instructor on YouTube, Cassey Ho of Blogilates. Over 3 million fans all over the world have transformed their bodies and their lives simply by following Cassey’s YouTube videos at home. Now, this virtual phenomenon has transformed into a real live group exercise experience!

Hi there! My name is Anie (aka @anielates on Instagram). I am the first and only POP Pilates® Instructor in the GTA. I am thrilled to bring POP to Toronto and the surrounding areas!

I discovered Pilates over 10 years ago in my first year of university. I had never been very active before, but I loved the burn and the strength that I gained from Pilates. Fast-forward to 2011 when I stumbled upon POP Pilates on YouTube while I was living in Japan. From that point on, POP Pilates became a source of strength and friendship. POP changed my body, gave me confidence, and helped me connect with new friends in a foreign country. Let me you – that burn and sweaty smiles are a universal language!

When POP Pilates became available as a group fitness class, I wanted to get certified. I was scared though – scared about whether I was strong enough, whether people would like it, whether I would succeed. After years of pondering, I finally mustered the courage to jump in.

Zero regrets.

POP Pilates is not just a workout. It’s a community of people who encourage and empower each other to be the best versions of themselves. I am so honoured to be part of this special group, and I cannot wait to show my community what POP Pilates is all about!

5 Fun Facts

  • I am a professional graphic/web designer (it’s actually what I studied in University).
  • I have my Standard First Aid with CPR-C certification.
  • I am a proud geek. I love anime, Doctor Who, Disney and so much more.
  • I love creative writing.
  • I love all things active. When I’m not dancing on that mat, I’m climbing rock walls, getting my warrior pose on, punching a bag or spinning on a pole.
