Vitality For Gamers (VForG) was founded in 2010 by Lionel Thomas. While working in the Computer Games Industry, he had an unfortunate back injury in 2009 due to his sedentary lifestyle as a Gameaholic. He decided life needed to change and dove into health and fitness to become a Healthy Gamer; this also led to saving the Earth, as most Gamers do. Combined, this created our cause, Gaming in the Real World for better Health, Gaming, and Saving the Earth.
“Gamification of Life for Health, Skills, Gaming, and Saving our Earth!”
This is done by:
- Gamer in Life
Life is like a computer game, full of wonders, opportunities, and skills to level up. Those who take action and risks stand the chance of unlocking powerful rewards that can change their lives forever.
- Vitality Challange
The Vitality Challenge creates healthy habits for your Real-life Avatar through Gamification.
- Vitality Challange for Kids
(for Parents with Gamers)
The Vitality Challenge for kids empowers Parents (and Guardians) with a system to encourage kids to develop healthy habits around screen time and life in general.
Saving the Earth
The actions taken to create healthy habits, level up skills, and be excited about life, will benefit the person and in turn the Earth by lowering our Carbon Footprints.
A few examples:
- Walk More (Less Driving)
- Avoid Processed Foods (Less Packaging)
- Avoid Sugary Food & Drinks (Less Health Impacts)
- Be and Buy Local (Less Logistics, Less Travel)
- Limit Screen Time (Be more active, Less power consumption)
- Intermittent Fasting (Consume Less)
- Circular Mindset (Recycle, Reuse, Reduce and Share)
All this and more improves Health while reducing the impact on the Earth.
Gamification and Carbon Footprint
Our Big Audacious Goal is to have a Scoring System to incentivise those who take action and improve their health, level up their skills, and lower their Carbon Footprint.
Having the populace mindset focused on Health, Skills, and the future of our Earth, we can drive the change in Companies to innovate their Products and Services.

Due to years of not looking after himself while gaming and screen time, Lionel’s health slid to a level he was unfamiliar with. After picking something off the ground, he pulled his back and laid on his couch; unable to move without server pain, he looked up at the ceiling and told himself, “This needs to change”.
