1980s Workout with Mindy Kaling and Kevin Hart

Welcome to an all-newepisode of “What the Fit.

” People, I of courseam your host, Kevin Hart.

Today, guess what.

Today we are taking itback to the '80s.

And by '80s, I do meanthe '80s, full swing.

You see my car? We're doing it! And on my show todayis Mindy Kaling.

That's right, people.

Mindy Kaling is on my show, And I am all aboutthat health and fitnesslifestyle, and I want thatfor my friends, too.

Whoa! – Hey, Mindy!- ( engine quits ) Is it on? – Hi!- Did it cut off? – How's it going?- It's good, Mindy.

– Did the car cut off?- ( laughs ) I think I may haveto start it up again.

– Oh, my goodness.

– Goddamn it.

This is a surprising carto see you in.

– Yeah, now we rollin'.

– Yeah.

– How you doin', lady?- I'm good.

Please tell mewhat you're working on, what are you doing? Uh, I havea 2-year old daughter.

Holy cow, Mindy! Yeah, yeah, we wereswimming the other dayand she was so cute.

I came up hereand she was sittingon the edge of the pool and I was like, “Hey, Katherine.

” And she's like, “Mommy, give me some space.

” – Wow.

Two years old.

– Two years old.

I was like, “We're ethnic.

We don't have space.

” ( laughs ) I kinda thoughtyou were gonna pick me up in, like, a Bentley or something.

– ( car stalls )- Well, I could've.

Goddamn it!It's– see, what happened– this is my brother's car.

If the Terminatorwas chasing us right now, we'd be in a lot of trouble.

No, we'd be in trouble.

I remember my momworking out to these– to these VHS tapes, where they were doing, like, aerobics.

And there were dayswhere she was like, “Come on, do it with me.

” And I would do itand I was excited.

And I said, “You knowwhat would be dope? If on 'What the Fit, 'if I actually embrace this '80s workout world.

” Front, back, push it, pull it, push it, pull it.

Faster!Lean into it.

You're gonna feel thison the high part of your glutes.

You're the only personI would wear a leotard for.

– That's amazing.

– Listen, getting into this car was my workout.

– This was your– ( laughs )- So, I don't know, – getting out of your— Why don't you work out, Mindy? I do.

Here's the thing.

When you're not in shape, I think people's assumptionis that you don't work out.

– Okay.

– It takes a lot of work to get this body.

Getting up and goingto the gym is supposed to make you feellike you put yourself in the best positionto win on that particular day.

And follow suitthe day after, the day after.

That's what I do.

I motivate and inspire peopleto understand how to be the bestversions of themselves.

That's it, Mindy.

Nothing more.

I was mad 'cause you'realready so funny and successful.

And then I was like, “Oh, now he has, like, a good body, too?” Yeah, yeah.

My body's pretty ( bleep )amazing, I'll tell you that.

Yeah, I've seenevery inch of your body.

You're damn rightyou have.

– Yeah.

– I mean every inch.

Every inch of your body.

There's been some photoswhere I let it all out.

And I'm happythey're out there.

We're gonnago back to the '80s.

I'm excited.

And before we start, we're going to indulgein wigs.

– Wigs?- Wigs, 'cause in the '80s, it was all about the mullet.

– Business in the front, party in the back.

– Yeah.

We're about to getsome wigs, Mindy.

– ( car stalls )- Goddamn it, Mindy.

Don't blame me, it's my brother.

It's his car.

– Ladies first.

– Whoa.

– Hi.

– This is nice.

How are you? Welcome to wig heaven.

Basically, we're gonna do, like, a '80s workout, and I feel likeif we're gonna do it, we should embracethe '80s, look the part.

AlthoughI have amazing hair, I think that a wigwould probably servea valuable purpose.

I want to look hotlike Tina Turner but, like, Rod Stewart, too.

Oh, I have the perfect, perfect wig.



– Oh, yes.

– .



you might like.

– Now we're talking.

– I think this is your perfect Rod Stewart.

That's a lot of hair.

Party in the back, business in the front.

Maybe I'll do, like, a headband or somethingon mine.

– Or a mullet?- What's this? I don't know if I gota mullet head, though.

You need a certaintype of head.

I think it hasa pin in it.

You got to swingthese things, Mindy.

– You know.

– Oh, my God, Yes.

Yes, I've seen youin a lot of red carpet things.

You've never looked better.

This right here is saying, “Give me the money.

” – Yeah.

– Huh? – It's saying, “Give me the money.

” – That's really good.

What you say?I ain't got timefor you or you.

You ain't got timefor either of us.

I don't know if it's–I don't know if it's the thing.

You think if I wear this, it's, like, cultural appropriation? By the way, that's my world.

– This is your world?- That's Rick James.

Let me see this.

Hold on.


Hold on, now.

– Huh?- Yes! – Yo, no, this is it.

– Yes! – Ah! Ah!- Yes! Ah! Ah! Oh, hello.

Not “no” like, “No.

” “No” like, “Wait a minute.

” I think that you're gonnabuy this one for me.

– No, no, no.




– How much is this? You know what?Don't even tell me.

Okay, uh, wow.

You know what this is? ( gasps )A Slinky? No, this is whatmy mom beat me with.

Um, it– yes, technically a Slinky.

But when I gotin trouble in school, I remember my mom, she took it, and she said, “Come here!” And she, like, flicked itright at my head.

Bink!Right at my forehead, so my memoryof a Slinky is not good.

– Okay.

This is the phonethat my mom told usto use – when ours got cut off.

– Okay.

“Are you there?”And my mom would bebehind me, and she'd be like, “No, I ain't home.

” And I'd be like, “I'll call you back.

” ( snorts )That sounds sad, too.

Well, it's not, because I got to pretendthat I talked to everybody.

( pretends to sob ) That one'sreally emotional, huh? Yeah.
