Rally Health, actor, comedian and Rally Health Ambassador Kevin Hart, and E! News host Maria Menounos hosted a free outdoor health festival, Rally HealthFest, at Nelson A. Rockefeller Park in Battery Park City, lower Manhattan a couple of weeks ago. They wanted to show New Yorkers how making simple lifestyle changes can be a lot of fun and help improve their overall health.
The New York Rally HealthFest featured fitness activities including boot camps, yoga classes, rock climbing and spin classes, as well as an interactive kids’ zone, all supported by Rally partner Asphalt Green, an NYC nonprofit. Attendees also had a chance to participate in a group workout with Ron “Boss” Everline, Kevin Hart’s personal trainer; get nutritional tips from young celebrity chef Haile Thomas; and earn prizes for participating in activities. There were be plenty of healthy eats and beverages from Juice Press. Attendees also joined Rally partner DiamondBack to help build bicycles that will be donated to Madison Square Boys and Girls Club.
“Kevin Hart is the ultimate motivator inspiring people to take charge of their health,”said Grant Verstandig, Rally Health founder and CEO. “As our Health Ambassador, Kevin has spoken directly with thousands of people at our HealthFests — most recently in Los Angeles — to help them learn steps they can take to adopt a healthier lifestyle. We [couldn’t] wait to celebrate good health with the people of New York City.”
“I’m passionate about health and fitness and really love meeting the awesome people who come out to our Rally HealthFests to renew, or make a brand new commitment to their own health and fitness. That’s powerful stuff. I want New Yorkers to know that taking even the smallest steps can make a big difference in their health, and we’re here to help,” said Hart.
