Kevin Hart, Maria Menounos and Rally Health Surprised Chicagoans at the Gym

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Actor and comedian Kevin Hart and TV/radio personality Maria Menounos –
Health Ambassadors for Rally
SM – surprised hundreds of gym goers yesterday at
Midtown Athletic Club when they showed up to participate in fitness
classes and stage a mini health festival. Their original plan to host
thousands of Chicagoans at the Rally HealthFest in Maggie Daley Park was
changed due to inclement weather.

“The rain couldn’t dampen the vibe of positivity that our outdoor Rally
HealthFest set out to deliver to the people of Chicago. It just got
redirected indoors to the awesome people spending their Saturday at the
club. We thank everyone for letting us crash their workout!” said Kevin
Hart, Rally Health Ambassador.

“This is a classic ‘make lemonade out of lemons’ scenario. While we were
disappointed that we had to cancel our Rally HealthFest in the park, we
were thrilled that we were still able to meet up with a great group of
people to celebrate healthy living. Our thanks to Midtown Athletic Club
for hosting us with just a day’s notice!” said David Ko, president and
COO, Rally Health.

As they do at the usual Rally HealthFests, Kevin, Maria and Kevin’s
personal trainer Boss participated in several fitness classes including
high-intensity sprints, boxing and a spin class, and chatted it up with
club members about the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle. Rally
set up a photo booth and a place where people could write letters to
their future selves.

“We were delighted to host Kevin, Maria and Boss at yesterday’s Rally
Health event. It was a wonderful surprise for our members and an
opportunity to showcase everything Midtown has to offer,” said Michael
Mahoney, general manager of Midtown Athletic Club.

company Rally Health. The events, which can draw up to 12,000 people,
are designed to promote healthy living through fun activities that
demonstrate four key pillars of health: MOVE, EAT, CARE, FEEL. People of
all ages come out to participate in family-friendly activities focused
on healthy living, for example, participating in group exercise classes
and cooking demonstrations, riding stationary bikes, playing memory and
brain games, learning practical health tips, and running potato-sack
races in the Kids’ Zone.
