Hey guys!

As you know I’ve been super busy and unfortunately, I didn’t have time to film a new workout for you this weekend so I got really desperate. I found an old old audition tape I made for the “8 Min Abs” way back in ’88 and it’s never been released before so thought, hey, might as well right! Well here it is, and here is your new video for April 1st:


Oh and just for the record, I came up with “hey gang” – NOT Jaime Brenkus. He was there watching me do my audition when they were casting and came on set right after me…saying the same thing!! That’s why I changed it to “hey guys” – what you hear commonly in my vids today.

Here’s a look at Jaime’s version of 8 min abs for your reference.


Geez I mean, at least he could have picked me to be a background workout model!!!

Oh well, no grudges. Enjoy my audition tape and have a Happy Monday!!! Make sure you’ve printed your April #Blogilates127 Workout Calendar!


<3 Cassey

    Hey Cassey! I love this workout! Sooo fun. 🙂 I just realized you skipped the alternating curls (I’d done your 8 minute abs so many times that when I tried the original and got to the alternating curls I was like, “Whaa?? Where’d this come from???”). But anyways, keep up the good work! 🙂

  3. Kristin says:

    haha, this video is so amazing!

  4. Amber says:

    I LOVE this! You totally fooled me. I was thinking “8 min abs…that was way back when…how?”. Not only was this hilarious, it was tough. Those good ‘ol moves do work.

  5. Gerald says:

    You’re such a Val! Like this was so tubular!!!!! Totally!
    Later at the Galleria, ok?

  6. Nicole says:

    WOW You look great for your age lol. Corneyness of the original video aside it is a great workout. It’ one of my fav ab workouts.

  7. Katy says:

    Lol totally fell for it! When I commented, I was actually thinking.. why does Casey look exactly the same?! She must be OLD. LOL.

  8. kelly says:

    HAHAHAHAHA! that jaime b has nothing on you hes so fake 😉
    this was great its good to have a giggle:)
    thanks for the laughs cassey keep making us smile

  9. miranda says:

    This was so funny! i actually believed it up until it said “parody” video! and i realized all the models were wearing cassey’s outfits from instagram! LOL! 🙂

  10. That’s hilarious. I knew right away. Wait 88? I was born 82. You are not that old! 🙂
    Got it there!!! 🙂 Nice one Cassey!

    1. love your outfits though. 🙂

  11. Elena says:

    Haha that was great!! I remember the outfits from Instagram! Love the thong leotard lol

  12. Angelica Ll says:

    You almost had me <3. Your shoes give you away within the first two mins. lol nice

  13. Bula says:

    OMG! I was totally fooled. I even got grossed out by Jaime and thought of all the ways that Cassey was tricked by the producers 🙁 OMG! That was a good one! I felt an ‘April’s Fools’ comin’ at me but I had no idea it would be Cassey! I wasn’t expecting it but it was totally appropriate for how much time I spend on Blogilates. I even clicked the comments to find out if anyone was talking about how old Cassey could be. Totally fooled me 🙂 🙁 xoxo

  14. elodie says:

    I’m still doing this video 5 time a week! What a surprise!

  15. Katy says:

    Wow this is a suprise!! I totally remember 8 min abs and I use to do this everyday when I first got into my fitness regime and it really helped me strengthen my core. It would’ve been a lot better and I’m sure I would’ve been more motivated if I was watching you though. Great job Casey!

  16. Aja says:

    I love that you made a video to that! I was like, wait, Cassey’s not that old!
    I actually started doing the 8 Min Abs video at the same time i started doing your videos like 3 years ago, so this just made my morning!

  17. Melissa says:

    OMG!! you seriously crack me up!

  18. Sumana says:

    OH MAN! You are hilarious!!!!. I totally fell for that. Then I thought, Cassey can’t be that old?! lol

    Fun video..totally made my day!


  19. Cassie says:

    This is the cutest April Fools joke I have ever seen.

  20. Eve says:

    Lmao! I thought you were serious, totally forgot yesterday was April Fools day! I was about to say well dang how old r u Cassey?!

  21. Marleah E says:

    OMG!! I use this old video all the time…Whenever he says “HEY GANG!” I always respond with “HEEEEEYY!!!” hahaha I love your rendition, totally using it now!

  22. Julia says:

    Now instagram all makes sense haha!! I love this video 🙂 Thanks Cassey!

  23. Laura says:

    You haven’t aged one bit since the 80s!!

  24. teilzeitDAU says:

    hahhaahahaha this is awesome!!!

    1. teilzeitDAU says:

      oh and of course it goes without saying that Jaime Brenkus ain’t got nothing on you, Cassey 🙂 you rule!

  25. Robyn says:

    First of all, what a great workout! Second, the clothes were so 80’s, it’s hard to believe those were really in fashion at the time, but maybe that’s what they’ll say about us 50 years from now. The second thing which made me giggle was the slang ‘totally awesome’, ‘totally rad’, and calling the viewers ‘gang’ about 25 times. A fun video!

  26. Halley says:

    Hey! I signed up for your newsletter about a week or so ago and I don’t seem to be getting the newsletter? It’s not showing up in my spam and the last email I got from you is the soul stretching email! I want to access the April Calendar! Thanks! 🙂

    1. Lena says:

      The best way to get a hold of her is to e-mail her directly! 🙂

  27. Rebecca says:

    Oh man, Cassey. The April calendar is wild, but I love it! I’m trying so hard to push through every video, every day, and I succeeded today. Woo! Granted, this was the last vid I did, and I was taking a few more breaks than normal, haha… and now I’m completely pooped. But I made it, and if you’d told me a month ago that I’d be doing almost an hour’s worth of workouts each day, I wouldn’t have believed you. Thank you so much for believing in all your POPsters – it’s exactly what I need right now. <3

  28. Chris says:

    I LOVE this video!! Do you have anymore hidden away? It’s so much fun to watch. Thanks!

  29. Amanda says:

    omg Cassey this made me laugh so hard! The outfits the music and the way you talked so great! now i know why you were asking us about those outfits on instagram! Love you so much!! Happy April fool’s day!!xx<3:)

  30. Avery says:

    I have been trying to find a challenging workout to tone muscle for FOREVER!!! I did day one on the April calendar and it was too perfect!!! This is really a great step towards a healthier lifestyle! Thanks for all of the videos, and I can’t wait to see the results at the end of the month!

  31. Rain says:

    Lol Cassey you made me laugh with this video. The background music, I felt at the 80’s again (well, I was born in 1987)!! They should have pick you Csssey, but wait, we the POPsters are so proud of you and your routines 🙂

  32. Chelsea says:

    O.M.G. This video just made my whole day! We don’t see nearly enough 80s vids making a comeback -those outfits are priceless!

  33. Elise says:

    On the calendar, at the very top of some days, I don’t know what the nstl pb jelly day, nstl pretzel day, nstl lovers day & natl kiss ur mate day means. WHAT DOES THE NSTL/NATL part mean & what is it there for!? PLEASE HELP!

    1. Jaylyn says:

      It stands for national

    2. Samaa says:

      Hi Elise,
      NATL is just short form for “National,” so for example, April 2nd (today!) is National PB Jelly Day. It’s just a little tidbit of information for fun, it really has nothing to do with the workout routines. And you don’t have to eat those foods on those days if you don’t want to! Haha. But peanut butter and jelly is amazing, let’s be real.

  34. Jayde Atkinson says:

    I agree with Kate! You need to do more workout routines to 80’s music! Or a 90’s series? Now that would be fun 😉 And I loved the outfits <3

  35. Gillian says:

  39. kate says:

  40. Stephanie says:

    LOL awesome April Fools!

    Is anyone else having issues with the calendar? I’m sitting here in my workout gear but I still haven’t gotten the e-mail (& I’ve been signed up for the newsletter since before you had to re-sign up, if you can remember that! For a long while). I tried signing up for the newsletter again but still haven’t gotten anything! =( Anyone else having this issue?

    1. Jena says:

      I just can’t get the calendar to open. I did receive the email first thing this morning.

    2. Ashlee says:

      Stephanie, I’m having the exact same issue – I’ve been subscribed to the email for forever, but haven’t received the email yet.

      To anyone that HAS accessed this month’s calendar (or Cassey), can you please post today’s videos so that we can still do them? Thanks!!
