GamerFitNation Presents Jim Girgenti as True Gamer of the Week.

I think that it is important to not only let the world know that gamers can be fit but that now is a better time than any to have unfit gamers get in shape.- Jim Girgenti


Jim tells us a little about himself. I am an avid gamer who has worked for numerous gaming sites and been the industry of gaming blogs/sites for nearly 4 years. is a site that is new and along with having the latest gaming news, reviews, interviews, exclusives, etc., we aim to evolve the site into an entire gaming community where people can make friends, chat, message, customize their profile, attain awards such as medals, badges as well as much, much more while having our forum linked directly to the site. Our goals are endless when it comes to features we will add.

Gaming systems Owned: Our company owns all Platforms and I personally own all myself, while I tend to be more of a console gamer.

The game that sparked your interest in Gaming: Gears of War 1

What keeps you gaming: The sheer and constant growth of games as well as their genres. Technology improves along side new ideas making new games more and more unique.

Workout regimen and eating habits: I tend to make sure I get in some sort of extracurricular activity whether it is a short jog or even a walk to keep my metabolism at a generally high rate. When time a lots it, I do enjoy a good workout to get my endorphins running as it feels good and inspires me to work harder with everything I do. I may not eat great all the time but I make sure that I consume 3 meals a day and try to balance out what foods I eat, covering all the bases (vegetables, protein, etc.)

Advice to gamers who are struggling with weight issues: Luckily you now no longer have to have a Nintendo Wii to get a virtual workout. With the Xbox 360 Kinect Motion Sensor and the PS Move for Playstation 3, you now not only have the option of getting fitness games, but now there are dance games, action games and more that are not only fun but run a beat to your own speed, while they all get you up and moving which is all that many people need that are struggling with weight issues.

Health wise what are you goals: To try to maintain a healthy lifestyle from working out to eating right, as a gamer myself I know that sitting on the couch all day does not help that.

Opinion on Health and Gaming: I think that it comes down to the specific individual where one gamer may not need to do as much as another gamer to stay healthy and it is just important to step back every once in a while to look at your lifestyle to see if it is a healthy one, because if you don t, you will wake up one day wondering how you got so out of shape.

Opinion on the current motion technology: I think it is the way of the future in many ways while I for one will never forget nor stop using a standard controller for certain games. However the motion controllers have not only got gamers off the couch as well as bringing new people into the gaming market as well.

GamerFitNation would like Jim for letting us into his world. Welcome to the club!!
