July 6th is going to be a great day for Kevin Hart.

If you didn’t know that comedian Kevin Hart, originally from Philly, has a serious side hustle going as a fitness superstar, then it’s time you take note: His Instagram account is a treasure trove of hilarious fitness inspiration; he’s put together 5Ks all over the country (including here in Philly!) as part of his Move with Hart collaboration with Nike; and he was recently featured on the cover of Runner’s World — because the dude LOVES to run.
So, long story short: Kevin Hart is on his fitness game. And yesterday, he got his sweat on at a gym that you may very well belong to. Yesterday morning, the folks from City Fitness posted an Instagram (see below) of Hart at their Graduate Hospital gym, thanking him for choosing to get his workout on with them. Got FOMO? Same.
One of our favorite Philadelphians, the oh-so-funny Kevin Hart, graces the cover of this November’s 50th anniversary issue of Runner’s World. Actually, he technically graces three covers: The magazine shot a three-page gatefold cover, with three cover shots representing different eras in running. Naturally, Hart brings the funny to all of them.
Philly-bred comedian Kevin Hart and Lionsgate have announced a new partnership that will include a new “social adventure tablet game,” as well as an on-demand video service.
The new, Netflix-style service will be called Laugh Out Loud, and will include a hidden-camera show in which Hart works as a Lyft driver. The rest of the service’s offerings will be “curated” by Hart to include “shows featuring social media stars and up and coming comedians,” Lionsgate said in its announcement of the partnership.
“I understand the direction in which the television business is headed, and I see this big new space toward which audiences are starting to gravitate,” said Hart, whose production company, Hartbeat Digital, is part of the deal. “I believe that launching this venture together now puts us ahead of the pack.” Read more »
Over the summer, we noticed that Philly native Kevin Hart was killing the fitness game on Instagram: He is a big fan of the gym selfie and often posts videos of himself getting his sweat on and/or acting a fool (because he is a comedian, after all) while surrounded by weights. And his Instagram posts aren’t his only mark on the fitness world: Over, the summer, while on his latest comedy tour, Hart, in collaboration with Nike, was holding pop-up Run With Hart 5Ks in cities all over the country (he stopped in Philly at the end of August). So, if he wasn’t already up there in your mental list of celebrity fitness idols, he’s about to be. Read more »
