People of all ages were joined by Hart as they participated in fun, family-friendly activities ranging from group exercise classes led by Kevin’s personal trainer, Ron “Boss” Everline, to races on Hippity Hop balls in the Kids Zone. On hand to help host the event and offer people encouragement to move more and eat healthier was New York’s own Robin Arzon, author of Shut Up and Run: How to Get Up, Lace Up, and Sweat. Rally’s partner leading the fitness activities was NYC nonprofit Asphalt Green.

“I loved engaging with the people at today’s Rally HealthFest and showing them that they don’t have to go to extreme measures to improve their health and fitness. Everything we did today was fun and easy to do, and just about everything we did had a health or fitness benefit. I hope that people left feeling inspired and motivated to take the first or the next step in a healthy direction,” said Hart.

The event today was Rally Health’s second HealthFest in New York City and fifth event overall across the United States. In 2015, the company named Hart its first Health Ambassador and has since collaborated to host Rally HealthFests and produce health-focused videos starring Hart.
