She has more than three million subscribers on her Blogilates YouTube channel and inspires an online community of fitness fans.
But earlier this year Cassey Ho shocked her loyal followers after she revealed a dark time in her life when she took dieting and fitness too far, which saw her spiral into what she called a "type of eating disorder."
Four years ago, while preparing for a bikini contest, she cut out fruit and carbs in a bid to get a sculpted supermodel-like figure. (She actually shared a photo on Instagram earlier this year showing her at that stage in her life, compared to her healthier figure of today.)
Ultimately though, as Cassey explains to Entrepreneur in a new interview, she regrets the extreme measures she went to in the quest for the "perfect" figure.
"Was it really worth it to have skinnier arms and a six-pack, so that I couldn't even think and run my business?" She went on to answer her own question emphatically, "No way."
But these days, Cassey says her relationship with food is improving each day.
She went on, "I want to be able to look at food as a way to nourish my body, not as the enemy."
And it's good to see that Cassey has now managed to release herself from the hell of dieting, something she described in the interview as like being in "jail."
In fact, on April 27, 2016, the Pilates instructor posted a photograph on Instagram, showing her ready to dig into a giant stack of buttermilk pancakes.
In a message accompanying the snap, she explained, "It has always been my ✨DREAM✨ to do one of those food challenges where you have to finish an obscene amount of food in a limited time period."
And while she only managed to consume less than a quarter (and "almost exploded" afterwards) it was still not a bad feat considering the size of the stack.
Cassey's story is something that can inspire us all and reminds us that life is about balance.
Look no further than her Instagram account to see the beautiful images of food she intersperses with her fitness photos, from healthy smoothies and salads to the occasional sweet treat for good measure.
At Wonderwall, we're heartened in the knowledge that food is no longer Cassey's "enemy."
