Her first fitness DVD, "POP Pilates: Total Body Workout," was released in Target stores in 2014, and her book, "Cassey Ho’s Hot Body Year-Round: The Pop Pilates Plan to Get Slim, Eat Clean, and Live Happy Through Every Season," was published in 2015.

Ho is not just a fitness entrepreneur; she is a role model in the fitness industry. Her philosophy is that working out should be about finding joy and making it part of one's lifestyle, rather than focusing solely on physical vanity.

In 2017, Ho made headlines when she critiqued an artificial 'thigh gap' photoshop on a model's image on Target's website, which led to an apology from the company. Ho, who struggled with an eating disorder following extreme training and calorie restriction for a bikini competition in 2012, emphasizes the dangers of pursuing "perfect" body images and the potential for eating and body image disorders. She further addressed this issue by creating a viral video called "The 'Perfect' Body" to raise awareness about the impact of cyberbullying.
