Gamer Fitness: Getting Fit and Healthy

Gamer Fitness: Getting Fit and Healthy

As video game popularity continues to skyrocket, the average gamer may be different than the stereotype many people might imagine. According to a report from the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), more than 150 million — or 42 percent of Americans — regularly play video games. As the demographics of gamers continue to expand and evolve, more people are interested in maintaining a healthy balance between their favorite hobby and their health.

Today, the Stamina Product team will continue our series on gamer fitness by describing a few ways you can get fit and healthy while enjoying video games.

Gamer Fitness: What You Can Do to Get Healthy as a Gamer

No matter how much you’re into your latest gaming obsession, it is important to take time to focus on your health. It can be tempting to snack on chips during a day of gaming, however, a healthy and balanced meal instead will lead to better health, cognition, and energy levels.

Be sure to set aside extra time to move around and stretch during a gaming binge, because a sedentary lifestyle can result in a whole host of negative health consequences. Increase your heart rate with cardiovascular activity. Basic bodyweight exercises like pushups and squats are simple solutions that you can put into action right now.

Taking Your Fitness to the Next Level

If you really want to get serious about your fitness, consider investing in yourself. Stamina Products offers a wide range of exercise equipment you can use to remain active — even during your gaming sessions. For instance, the WIRK Orbit Strider allows gamers to keep their legs moving and burning calories even while they remain seated. The WIRK Ride Exercise Bike Workstation and Standing Desk is perfect for keeping your gaming laptop front and center while you get great cardiovascular exercise. You don’t even need to pause your favorite strategy game to get an excellent workout. If you are more of an action or sports gamer, the Stamina WIRK Under Desk Exercise Bike lets you pedal to your heart’s content from the comfort of your sofa or desk, without distracting you from your game.
