Cassey Ho In Workout Gear Shares "30-1-30 Cardio Hiking" Treadmill Session

She is thriving with slow cardio.

Fitness influencer and entrepreneur Cassey Ho is sharing another slow cardio workout she calls the 30-1-30 method. Ho, 37, posted a video of herself wearing black shorts, white socks, and a green sweatshirt, walking on an incline on the treadmill.

"My current workout mood: 30-1-30

30 incline ↗️

1 mph 🐌

30 minutes ⏱️

Seriously gets my heart rate so high, and in comparison to running (which feels like torture to me) this slow cardio hiking situation feels more enjoyable for my body! I spent yearsssss trying to like HIIT, trying to like running, but honestly, it always felt like I had to try SO hard. I also never really felt like I got better at it," she captioned the post. Here's how Ho stays fit, happy, and successful.


Pilates, Of Course

Ho loves how accessible Pilates is. "I really love Pilates because it is all about competing against yourself and who you were yesterday. You do not have to compete with anyone else," she told Athleisure Mag. "Pilates is so good for your body because if you are doing mat Pilates you do not need any equipment and you are using your body strength, which also means you have fewer excuses when you are traveling. You don't have to go to the gym to do Pilates; you can do it literally in your hotel room or at home."


Self-Care and Cooking

Ho loves to cook in her down time. "To destress, I like to get massages, visit the farmer's market to get groceries, and to cook," she told Spoon University. "Cooking is creative and meditative for me, and I love designing new recipes."


Eagle Crunch

Ho swears by the eagle crunch for great abs. "You would cross your knees over each other and then cross your ankles if you can and cross your elbows over each other and then your wrists, if you can," she told Athleisure Mag. "Essentially, you are trying to make the body nice and tight. While you are laying on your back, squeeze and crunch up touching your elbows to your knees and then you release. That action is really going to attack your core, your abs and it is pretty insane. You will want to try about 15 or 20 of those and the slower, the better."


Protein and Fiber

Ho enjoys a balanced, satiating diet. "As a snack, I'll have some fruit or coconut yogurt. I've recently been obsessed with poke bowls, so that's what I've been having for dinner but another standard dinner would be salmon and asparagus with a side of quinoa, or another protein + veggie + whole grain combo," she told Spoon University. "Also, when I get hungry, I'll have an apple with peanut butter."


Three Pillars of Health

Ho says the three pillars for health are good nutrition, being active, and good sleep. "I think many people skip on the sleep part because it is not often talked about with the same level of emphasis as working out and eating right," she told Athleisure Mag. "I think people need to try to get 7-8 hours of sleep a day. Obviously, everyone is different but that is the number that tends to work for me and when that happens you will not only learn better, but you will remember more and feel happier, which studies have proven."
