Veronica tells GFN a little about herself. I’m the host of the monthly digital magazine called Qore on the Playstation Network, and co-host of Tekzilla on Revision3.com. Qore is a monthly digital magazine, only available on the PSN. We cover PS3 games, interview developers, and offer exclusive content and downloads you can’t get anywhere else! [I own] PS3, gaming PC, and yes… an XBox 360 is also in the house. I can’t claim it as mine, though! The game that sparked Veronica’s interest in Gaming was Frogger on ColecoVision.
Veronica tells us about her workout regimen, eating habits, and advice to gamers who are struggling with weight issues.
I do Pilates and walk a lot, though I’ve had a hard time fitting in gym sessions lately because of work! I also like rock climbing, tennis and biking. I like feeling strong! Pilates and weight training make me feel like I can take on anything. Exercise also helps me sleep better. Advice to gamers: It’s all about taking that first step. It can seem really hard to get started with an exercise regimen, but if you find something you really like to do (like a sport, or listening to podcasts or audiobooks while you do the elliptical) you’ll find yourself exercising more and more! Don’t worry about the number on the scale as much as just feeling better inside and out. [Remember do] everything in moderation! You’re not going to feel very good about yourself if you sit on your butt all day gaming. Getting some fresh air and exercise can be just as satisfying and fun.
Veronica’s opinion on the gaming industry and how they handle health: I’m glad there are more games now that encourage physical activity (like Sports Champions) but it’s not a replacement for real exercise. I like that Blizzard says during loading screens in WoW that it’s fine to spend time with your friends in-game, but make time to go outside with them as well. I have a blast with Move, and I can definitely break a sweat sword fighting! But I don’t think it’s a replacement for a workout routine.
GamerFitNation would like to thanks Veronica Belmont for taking time out of her busy schedule to let us into her world.
Don’t Just Be Fit, Be Gamer Fit
