Davey Wavey, GBFs, and an AMAZING Ab Workout!

I can’t tell you how excited I was to meet Davey Wavey during one of our YouTube Next Trainer hangouts. He is such a cutie and when I found out that we both had mutual feelings about creating something together, I nearly flipped out!

For those of you who don’t know who Davey is, he is a very influential gay voice on YouTube. He also happens to have a fitness channel too and that is how we met! Together, we made an ab workout video for you that is in real time so that you can follow along. I want you to do the whole thing – there are new moves in there that you haven’t seen before, so give it a shot!

I have a very soft spot for gay guys – I’m not gonna lie – I love them and we tend to get along very well! I’m gonna add a little tidbit here from my personal life on why this collab video means a lot to me.

Back in college, I had a GBF or gay best friend. We literally were¬†inseparable. If you ever watched Will & Grace, I was Grace and he was Will. It was a relationship/friendship that was somewhere between best friends and lovers. We talked about everything and we truly loved each other. Cared for each other in every which way. It’s one of the most amazing, unique friendships I have ever had.

Unfortunately, things got rough when boyfriends got into the picture. We were both hurt. I’m going to make the story short and say that we ended up having to officially “break up”. As weird as it sounds, I cried for days while listening to sad love songs. He was such a huge part of my life…and then all of a sudden. No more communication. It’s been about 3 years, I miss him dearly, and I still think about him at least a few times a week. I just couldn’t find a good reason to call him and tell him how I’ve been feeling these past few years.

A couple weeks ago, I was cleaning my room and found a picture of us that I had saved from college. Inside was an unopened envelope. I tore it open to find a letter from him that I had never read. The date was around the same time we had broken up. Needless to say, it made me very emotional. This was the reason. This was the sign. I took a deep breath and reached out to him.

Sorry for the major tangent, but I felt that this was natural to write seeing that I just did a collab video with Davey Wavey. Davey is such a fantastic person and reminds me a lot of my old GBF. I’ll let you guys how this story ends if/once our reunion occurs. Do any of you guys have GBFs? Have you ever had to deal with a break up of this sort?

Enjoy the ab workout. Please do the whole thing! I promise you that it will be a good one!!!!!!

  1. You guys together make my day. I mean really. <3 I laughed so much.
    Thanks for the workout!

  2. That was just the ab workout I needed today!

  3. Love the vid! I’m definitely gonna try this tomorrow, as today is my rest day ;)

  4. yes, yes, want more, want more videos like this :)
    Really enjoyed this video, you were so funny together and your stlye match perfectly :)

  5. I’ve had a GBF for years! It’s funny how we all seem to have one! Well, actually, I used to have one.
    We ”broke up” a few months ago . One day he takes me to this little organic caf√© we both love and we had an awesome time like always, and all of a sudden the next day he disapears.. He used to live in the street beside me but he moved, he quit his job and even got off facebook. And never answerd his phone again. I just don’t understand, we had so many plans together… Maybe he realized that I liked him a little bit more than I should, even though I would’ve never acted upon it and I dont even think it would have bothered him. I really miss him, and I just don’t know what happened or where to find him.
    So I understand totally what you’re going through and I really hope it works out for you.

  6. I had a gay best friend at one point in my life same situation we did everything together and loved each other so much, I miss having a gay best friend they really are the best. We wound up going are separate ways, we keep in touch via facebook but that’s it! I hope it all works out for you Cassey! Love the workout!

  7. awww cassey, in my opinion, if you really love someone no matter who it is, you will always find the strength to reach out to that person, even if it can be scary. If you know they have a kind and open heart they will of course reach back to you and support you in everything you do. the only thing you can really do is make an effort to contact them. if you did say hi to him, hopefully he was accepting of your generous offering to say hello, and hopefully you have both moved on to make a different type of friendship. friends are like stars, you might not see them all the time, but just know they are always there.

  8. My GBF was actually my cousin. Since we were kids we were inseparable. Everywhere he went he turned heads. He always had this incredible confidence about him that I was always envious of. But instead of making me feel bad about myself, he was always telling me how beautiful I was and any guy would be lucky to have me. I know it sounds weird, but to me he was kind of a combination of a protective older brother and a wise older sister. We were always in contact even after I left for collage. Until one day, I got the phone call that turned my life upside down: my cousin had suddenly died of AIDS related complications. No way, it just can’t be true I thought to myself. I had spoken to him just a week before & he sounded great. I had no idea he had even been HIV positive. He would have told me. Why would he hide that from me? How long was he sick before he died? Was he alone? Did he suffer? Did he wish I was there with him? I had a million questions, but no-one to answer them. Till this day I haven’t gotten over losing him to that awful disease. The light at the end of the tunnel came when his best friend and I bonded over his death and now WE are best friends. Not that he is a replacement for my cousin but whenever either of us is overwhelmed by something, whether it’s grief, the pressures of everyday life, work etc we both know that we will always be there for each.

  9. Kind of lol…I had a REALLY REALLY close guy friend who I shared everything with, helped him get ready for dates, ( was straight but I swore he was gay), Anyhow we hung out together all the time. When I met my now husband I had them meet since they were both so important to me. They got along but I could sense something weird. He came to my wedding with his girlfriend then after the wedding I never heard from him again…I called, I facebooked him, I even went to his house, but he refused to see me. I know he always liked me but he was like a brother to me. It still saddens me that he won’t talk to me..its been over a year

    • hey cari, sorry about your friendship loss but hopefully in the future he can be strong enough to see you again. it must have really hurt to see you marry someone, but hey, if it was not meant to me it’s probably for the better, and for a a happier you. <3

  10. Great post. I can’t wait to try this ab workout!!

  11. Hey guys, can i ask you a question? well, i like to exercise, and when i saw your videos on youtube it maked me be sooooo motivated!! i do like twelve minutes per day of pop pilates videos…
    the thing is: i’m 14, what means i can be still growin up and my muscles and bones are desenvolving. if i do pilates, will it disturb my growing up phase? i’m doing only twelve minutes, but i want to do half an hour. (at least!!).
    i’m sorry for bothering you… if anyone here knows it, please tell me, any help will be welcome :) xo

  12. I also have a GBF! We met in high school and have been BFF for more than 10 years. He even was my best man at my wedding! Thankfully, we have a totally different taste when it comes to guys, so we’ve never had any problems.
    I’ll watch your video later, looking forward to getting sore abs. ;)

  13. cassey wheres your top from? its so lovely!

  14. My GBF and I “broke up” when the guy he liked, turned out to be straight and liked me instead. Things like that happen and that wasn’t the reason our friendship ended. Long story short, when he found out, he immediately assumed the worst of me, refused to talk to me and basically stared daggers at me. Eventually another friend helped explain the misunderstanding to him but our friendship was never the same after that. We just couldn’t trust each other anymore.

    I personally don’t feel the need to reconnect with my old GBF, but if you do, go for it. It’s better to be open about your feelings and just try, than to have regrets later on. Keeping my fingers crossed for you <3
