(NEW YORK) — Want to live healthier and get in shape? Kevin Hart is here to help.
The actor/comedian recently signed on as the health ambassador for Rally Health, a company focused on helping others find practical ways to stay healthy. Hart says that although he’s always been active, he’s had to learn through trial and error what works the best for his body.
Kevin tells ABC Radio, “I think there were moments where I thought I was in shape or that I was working out correctly and I definitely wasn’t. And I think as you get more involved you realize, ‘Oh wait, this is what I should have been doing’ or ‘This is what people do,’ ‘Oh this is an easier way.’ And you know, you just acquiring more information.”
The Secret Life of Pets star reveals that his dedication to fitness came from his desire to take better care of himself. “I’ve fallen in love with taking care of myself. I think when you start to understand and realize the importance of health and wellness, it puts you in a position to spread the information that has been given to you,” he says.
Hart, who jokes that he does 1,000 sit-ups a day, is extremely forthcoming about his fitness routines on social media, explaining that each day should be “a step in a better direction.”
Hart says the best advice for those looking to get in shape is to be active, be patient and to pace yourself. He tells ABC Radio, “The most important thing is just to move. Just to simply get up and be active. And that’s at your pace. It’s not that it’s a competition. The only person you should ever be in competition with is yourself.”
