Combining Wellness, Fitness and Gaming

WellPlayed: Healthy Gamer Month invites all to embrace a new era of gaming, one where vitality and well-being take center stage. This is more than an event; it's a testament to the transformative power of esports when paired with a commitment to personal growth and wellness.

Throughout the month, gamers will be invited to join weekly fitness challenges that target different aspects of a healthy gamer lifestyle. Fans can expect a fitness challenge video each week featuring major professional esports teams, including Cloud9 and the Cincinnati Fear, and winning collegiate esports programs that have embraced a new level of performance, one that incorporates player health. Fans can join in with #WellPlayed.

From CEO & Co-Founder Kristin Anderson, “With a shared commitment to fostering personal growth and well-being, our month-long campaign with Esports Illustrated will provide gamers with cutting-edge strategies and holistic approaches to optimize their performance – both physically and mentally.
