Kevin Hart's trainer Ron 'Boss' Everline says the comedian only takes a rest from the gym if he's forced to.

Kevin Hart's trainer Ron 'Boss' Everline sometimes has to ignore the comedian until he stops playing up.

The 36-year-old is known for his high-energy performances, and as well as stand up he's brought his blend of comedy to movies like Get Hard, Ride Along and Along Came Polly. Sometimes Kevin finds it hard to leave the funny at the door, something Ron knows all too well.

"What you see on stage and in the movies is what I’m dealing with every day in the gym," Ron smiled to Details, adding that when this happens, he just has to ignore Kevin. "At any moment, Kevin Hart’s going to come out."

When he does get serious though, Kevin puts his all into workouts. He's not shy when it comes to showing off his impressive abs, even posing topless for promo shots for spoof show The Real Husbands of Hollywood, while co-stars like Nick Cannon and Nelly stand fully clothed.

It's no wonder he's happy to get his pecs out, as Ron reveals Kevin barely takes any downtime when it comes to fitness. "Unfortunately, he doesn’t take a day off (from) his workouts unless I force him," Ron explained. "He likes the momentum."

Breaking down Kevin's high-intensity total body workout, Ron explains it's a mixture of jump squats, burpees, lunge jumps, diamond push ups, sits ups and plank. The pair have worked together for two years, and Ron often finds himself on the road with Kevin, squeezing in workouts whenever they can. He's also been on hand to launch Run with Hart, a fitness initiative to get fans fit by running with him. They teamed up with Nike+ Run Club, going on 5K stretches with keen joggers.

"More than make people laugh, he wants to encourage people to lead healthier lives," Ron explained.
