Transcript for Kevin Hart reveals how wellness has 'definitely changed' his life
Wonderful crowd and have one of our favorite guests joining us. He's one of the funniest men on the planet. It is Kevin hart. Give it up for Mr. Hart. Yes, yes, yes, thank you. I want to go on record. In the commercial break, you two were talking hair. I wasn't talking hair. You two -- We were talking -- I was telling him I'm letting my grays pop right now. I'm not going to dye my hair. I don't want anybody judging me. I want to see how bad it get so right now I look like a skunk. It's just one stripe. You actually said I want to see what happens. Kevin, I can tell you what is going to happen. I don't know if it's going to be a full head of gray. I just want to see what happens. I'm not afraid. I'll let fate do what fate does. All right. Yes, that's what I'm going to do. I thought it was refreshing the two men were talking about hair. I got one in my beard. No, you got more than one, man. I'm not going to do this. If you're going to judge me, we're not going to do this. You've got it going on and first of all, congratulations, baby number three. Are you ready? Are you ready? On the way, baby number three. Before you said you were ready. You know what, I wasn't at first but, you know, after -- as me and my wife had some conversations and I really looked around and I said, you know what, this last name needs $- to live on, you know, my son is a hart and now having another son to carry that last name on, you know, is a big deal. I definitely didn't want another girl so the fact -- What? Yeah, I don't want another girl. What? My daughter is too much. She got me wrapped her around my hand. I don't want another boss. I want to share a text she sent. The Mrs. Is a boss. One-year anniversary. Married for one year now. Time flies. Congratulations. Yeah. Literally like I don't even know where the time went and I got to do something special. I don't know what I'm going to do yet but she's pregnant and I know she expecting something big. I don't know what I'm going to do. You kind of set the bar high because, you know, I saw you on Instagram. You set the bar up. You got to step up. I'm a romantic guy, you know. I'm a prince charming is what I am. If you really look me in my eyes, you'll get lost. Okay with that being said I'll look forward to asking you the next question. What you do set for your kids and everybody that follows you set a healthy example. You are a workout warrior. I've seen you work out with your kids. How important is that to you? For me it's everything. I think health and wellness have definitely changed my life, you know. I put a heavy demand on myself and in order for my body to respond I got to take care of it so the reason why I'm such a health nut is because I want to give myself the best chance to win and this one life that I have I'm trying to live it to the fullest. I can't expect myself to do things at the highest level if I'm not giving myself the chances that I deserve so that's where health and wellness comes in from eatin good to fitness to working out. It's a priority. It allows you to keep the schedule you keep. You and your buddy the rock are the hardest -- It's not me and my buddy the rock. It's me. It's just me. He's nowhere near where I am. He's not even close to where I am. No, he's definitely a hard worker but you know what, what I love about him, we motivate each other. That guy literally gives it 100% every day and he's the same. He's a health nut as well but we want it all and I think when you have that attitude of I want it all, I want to do it all, I want to be around to literally get the rewards and benefits from working as hard as I work. That's why I have to take care of myself, man, I don't want to not give my kids a father or heighten the chances of me not being around but make sure my kids enjoy what I'm enjoying. You're here for the rally health fest and you're a spokesperson. I'm an ambassador. You're an ambassador. And all the things you do what piece of advice can you give? You know what people try to do that I found out, man, everybody wants to do it all in one day. Everybody wants to go to the gym and do everything that one day. Everybody wants to do these cleanses and, you know, starve themselves for one day and expect to see a response. I will tell people to take baby steps, man, you know, it's not something that happens overnight. It's a lifestyle that you have to adapt to so my one piece of advice would be give yourself a chance. By me saying give yourself a chance, in other words, give yourself a month. If you say I'll change my diet and eat healthy for a month and you know what, I'll throw some activity within that month, twice a week, three days a week, you don't have to go seven days or six days, start off small and as you adjust to it you'll see results and you'll fall in love with those results. Be in love with seeing yourself become a better version of yourself and I think that's what people don't give themselves a chance to do. Well said. Very well said. Dag gone right it's well said because I'm a well spoken individual, Mike. You went there. Hey, I hear yoga. Yeah. You have adopted to. I'm loving yoga right now. I'm switching it up. Zen. Not zen. Me doing something different. I said I'm going to do it because I'm not flexible. I wasn't flexible at all and I was waking up aching. Ah, ah and I couldn't touch my toes and asking my trainer, what else should I do? He said why don't we switch it up and do yoga. We did some hip-hop yoga. Music while you hurt pretty much but I like it. I'm into doing different things and I'm into literally challenging myself. You have a favorite pose or anything. I don't know the names of all of them. My favorite now is where you put your hands in the air and knees forward and you go back but you -- Warrior pose. I will show you now. Is that what it's called. Thank you, man, for helping me out. Don't correct me again. You let me figure it out. You let me get there, okay. But thank you but don't do it again. Yes, the warrior pose, thank you for helping me out. I will show you now but my jeans are way too tight to do it. Hey. These are some 29/29s, Mike, I went down a size since working out, these are 29 slims on the bottom. I'm a petite young man, okay. Don't judge me. You were talking about your daughter earlier. She sent out a tweet or sent you a message in saying, you know, very proud of you and all that you're doing but that she said that you're doing too much. Oh, yes. She said dad, this is not a joke. You need your rest and if your boss says you can't rest let me talk to him then you will get your rest what if this gets worse I need to learn when to stop. She wrote it in all caps. That's on Snapchat. My daughter Snapchats me as if I'm not her father. Call me and say what you got to say. Why are you snapchatting, heaven? She'll send messages and Snapchat like video messages like, hey, dad, thinking about you. Gir, if you don't pick up the phone, I just called you two seconds ago. Sorry, dad, snap me. She's at that cool age right now but I'm so in love with the young lady that she's becoming and I love the fact that she not only understands who her dad is and what I do but she sprays it. She doesn't care. I'm just dad and that message came because I had a cold and she was like you're getting sick. Your body is shutting down, you need to sit down and I popped her because I said you don't talk to Meo like that, okay. I'm dad and she popped me back and she said I'm the daughter. You give whatever you want. I'm going to sit down. You set a great example. Glad you're here for the rally fest. It's going down. Going on tour in September. Primed and ready to go. Funny as ever. Thank you, man. I cannot wait, please come join me at this rally health fest. Come get some health, motivation and inspiration from your boy. Come down and mess with me, man.
