You may be under the assumption (or not) that geeks aren’t fit people — That they sit around with their video games, comics, and/or books doing nothing most of the time.
There are actually a lot of fit geeks and quite a community of them. From dedicated cosplayers to geeks that live the healthy life, there are so many resources for you should you want to join them!
One such resource is Nerd Fitness. (Clicky!)
The creator, Steve, has put together an awesome website with a blog, forum, his own set of resources, and finally, the Nerd Fitness Academy. The NF Academy is where it’s at, ladies and gentleman. Imagine you could gain experience and level up by doing quests that apply to your real life and that’s what this academy is. You pay a one-time fee and have full access to all of the website’s features for life. This includes a 100% money-back guarantee.
There are even several Tumblr pages dedicated to geek fitness such as:
Also, let’s not forget blogs! 😀
One of my favorites is the blog: Geek Fitness
Geek Fitness is the blog linked to the first tumblr above, but if you like to read as well as appreciate pictures, then the blog version is for you!
And, a blogspot: Geek Fitness Network
Beyond that, geeks have quite a collection of work out attire available to them! If you followed me on Geeky ‘n Girly, you may remember me mentioning Look Human – Which has a huge selection of geeky work out clothes that include some of my favorites:
Trust me when I say that I have a huge list of work out tanks, shirts, and sweatshirts that I want, no need, to buy. Haha.
Why do I need them? Why am I jabbering on about geek fitness? Well, because I am a geek with my health on my mind. I’m not the type to diet and exercise just to reach a goal and then stop. I’m currently in the midst of making an entire lifestyle change as well as doing a walk-to-run exercise program. — And this is coming from a girl that didn’t play sports, disliked gym, and was relieved that marching band took the place of gym in high school!
So be prepared for more fitness posts as I track my progress and try to encourage other geeks to get fit too!
