NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comedian and actor Kevin Hart and TV/radio personality Maria Menounos were on hand today in New York City’s Flatiron Plaza to kick off Rally Health’s “Rally on the Road” summer tour celebrating healthy living.
Hart and Menounos, Rally Health Ambassadors, unveiled the new Rally® tour bus that will travel to cities across the country where the digital health company will host free, family-friendly public events highlighting simple steps people can take to improve their health.
“We’ve had the privilege of hosting thousands of people the last few years at our large-scale Rally HealthFests, and thought it was a good time to take the show on the road to promote healthy living and show people easy and actionable ways they can take control of their health,” said David Ko, president and COO, Rally HealthSM.
In announcing the tour theme, “Get Your Mind & Body in Motion,” Hart and Menounos participated in activity courses set up in front of the bus that focus on moving more and eating better. They demonstrated easy ways to get moving with simple exercises such as jumping jacks, push-ups, squats, lunges and step-ups. Another activity course focused on eating better, starting with loading up a grocery bag, checking that healthy foods were selected and separating food facts from myths. Event participants who completed the courses got to spin a wheel for health-related gift packs inspired by Rally’s three Health Ambassadors: Hart, Menounos, and Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon.
“Our goal with ‘Rally on the Road’ is to meet people where they are and inspire them to make their best effort every day to get their mind and body in motion in the pursuit of improved health,” said Hart. “Mental as well as physical exercise is important. See how strong your mind is, and your body will follow. Push yourself, and every day, push a little farther.”
The “Rally on the Road” summer tour, which runs through August, travels from New York City to Washington D.C. and then on to Charlotte, N.C., Atlanta, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Rally Health Ambassadors Hart, Menounos and Gordon will appear in select cities, to be announced on the Rally Health website at www.rallyhealth.com/tour.
