The image of a fit gamer is not something that easily comes to mind thanks to the common stereotypes surrounding the gaming lifestyle. But if you are one of those people who think being into online and video games make for an unhealthy lifestyle, you might want to start rethinking that thought. While there are many players out there who easily fit the bill, there are also those who manage to find that balance between serious gaming and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Case in point would be gamers who are also into other activities like a sport or martial art. Some even manage to find time for other hobbies like cosplaying which may require them to be physically fit and in good shape to closely resemble the character they are playing.


Gamers are not one-dimensional people that anyone uninitiated in their world can easily fit in a box. They come in all shapes and sizes and mindsets. Some may fit the stereotype to a T while others can be as active and health-conscious as any fitness enthusiast can be.

The gaming lifestyle is not a one-size fit all way of life. For those who are actually living it, such a lifestyle could take on many different forms each of which is designed to best fit an individual gamer’s preferences and choices. And just because people are spending a lot of time playing a wide array of games does not mean they do not take care of their health. Topnotch fitness may not be on top of every gamer’s priorities. But many choose to keep fit – both in the virtual and real world.
