So here is the plan, I am wanting to bridge the gap between gamer/nerd & power lifter/fitness “guy”. I have been a gamer all my life, it started with the Mario/Duck Hunt NES combo and never stopped. About 4 years ago I decided I wanted a change. I simply was not happy with the outer me and needed a change. I started hitting the gym, not really knowing what to do, but determined. I am a bit obsessive when it comes to knowing as much as possible about a subject, so I started researching. My goal is to share a lot of the information I found.
One thing I am going to be doing is featuring people to “guest write”. I am wanting to get some people from the fitness side and some people from the gaming side to share their thoughts on particular subjects as well as the other side (fitness as a priority vs gaming as a hobby and vice versa). I am wanting to share insight on how to balance these two to live a long and happy life. Another goal of mine is to actually show how the two groups of people are not that different and often are very much alike.
If you could take one thing away from this blog, it is this, if you consider yourself “nerdy” do not be afraid to talk to the “BUFF” guy at the gym or in public, chances are you have more in common than you think. I am hoping to bridge the gap, break down stereo-types, and make it ok to be yourself.
Here is a photo of my progression in one year. The results can be huge with the right information and some determination. I am by no means an expert, but I have a good grasp on both sides and I am excited to share what I know.
