born 1986

Cassey Ho wanted to be a fashion designer; her parents wanted her to be a medical doctor. But the honors bio student ultimately discovered a different dream ~ building her own hugely popular health + fitness brand on social media. 

Now, the part-time Pilates instructor has become YouTube's #1 fitness star. Her vlogs regularly serve up fresh, fun routines + "clean, cheap eats." Cassey's secret to scoring more than a million followers? Listening to what they want...And, not sleeping.

The energetic entrepreneur also hasn't let go of her early love of fashion. Cassey designed her own lines of chic active wear + gym accessories so fans can "train like a beast, look like a beauty!"
