Cassey Ho is an American social media fitness entrepreneur with a YouTube channel and a website that sells fitness apparel. She is considered an Internet personality and a rising YouTube star nationally and internationally (h/t: wikipedia).
"I realize now that I am not just an instructor at a gym, but that I am a role model and leader in the fitness industry. It is my responsibility to do whatever I can to help people get healthier while feeling confident and happy in their body. If a girl can look in the mirror, can love what she sees while still working hard to be a better version of herself than she was yesterday then I have accomplished my goal" - says Cassey.
Cassey believes that the problem with exercising begins when people do it solely for physical vanity or for creating a sense of worth. The whole fitness journey should serve the purpose of improving your body in a healthy way. It's important to dig deep to find the joy in working out. It might be a passion for running, dancing, or doing Pilates. Whatever it might be, so long as you like it, it may as well become a part of your daily routine.
She believes that social media and in particular, social fitness media has an important role to play in helping people achieve their fitness and healthy lifestyle goals. This is especially true for people who lack family and friends to provide that support.
Cassey believes that YouTube has an important role to play in issues concerning body image. In her view, body image is shaped by the "perfect" images of women in magazines and movies and when women and girls pursue these "perfect" body images, the result can sometimes be eating and body image disorders. She believes that YouTube provides content creators with a platform to present girls and women as they really are which she believes will encourage them to be more confident in who they are.
