Be a Gamer in Life... Level Up your Health, Skills, Lifestyle and Save the Earth

About Us

Vitality For Gamers (VforG) was founded in 2010 by Lionel Thomas. After suffering a back injury in 2009 due to his sedentary lifestyle as a gamer and Gameaholic, Lionel realized he needed to change his life. He became passionate about health and fitness and became a healthy gamer.

Lionel’s journey towards better health also led him to realize that as we become healthier, so does the Earth. As a result, Vitality For Gamers was born to promote the gamification of life and encourage others to adopt healthier habits while contributing to environmental sustainability.

At Vitality For Gamers, we believe everyone can be healthy and socially responsible. We strive to create a community of like-minded individuals committed to living a balanced life that incorporates physical activity, healthy eating, and environmental consciousness.

We do this through various initiatives, including online resources, educational content, videos, apps, and Point & Reward system.

Join us for the Greater Good!

Gamification of Life

“Be a Gamer in Life… Level Up your Health, Skills, and Lifestyle”

The Gamification of Life uses gamification techniques to encourage people to adopt sustainable and healthy practices in their daily lives. We strongly believe that by integrating game-like elements into everyday activities, individuals are more likely to remain engaged and motivated to adopt positive behaviors that lead to a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.

The Gamification of Life can play a significant role in improving humanity’s lifestyle while simultaneously saving the Earth. By making sustainable and healthy practices fun and engaging, people are more likely to incorporate them into their daily routines.

For example, gamifying activities such as recycling and maintaining healthy activities can help individuals see the immediate impact of their actions and encourage them to continue making positive changes.

The Gamification of Life can also lead to a sense of community and friendly competition, motivating people to adopt sustainable and healthy practices. When individuals can see the positive impact of their actions and compete with others to achieve goals, it can lead to a sense of accomplishment and foster a culture of environmental stewardship and healthy lifestyle for communities.

Points and Reward Scoring System

We are developing a comprehensive Point and Reward Scoring System that encourages individuals to adopt sustainable and healthy practices. Tracking their progress and rewarding them for their efforts will motivate individuals to make lasting changes by forming healthy habits.

Change by the People
As we become healthier, we want to drive change in companies to innovate their products and services to be more sustainable and environmentally conscious; and stop Greenwashing.

We firmly believe that everyone has the power to make a difference, regardless of who they are. By making conscious choices in our everyday lives, we can collectively influence companies to prioritize sustainability and positively impact our Earth.

Saving the Earth

Saving the Earth is a critical issue that requires urgent attention. By adopting healthy habits, we can improve our health while reducing our carbon footprint and helping protect the Earth.

Here are some actions that can help make a difference:

  • Walk or Cycle:
    Walking or cycling instead of driving can reduce your carbon footprint and improve your physical health. Walking or Cycling can also save you money and reduce traffic congestion.

  • Eat more Whole Foods:
    Processed foods often come with a lot of packaging, contributing to waste and pollution. Processed foods can also be unhealthy if they contain added sugars, salt, and unhealthy fats. When possible, eat Whole Foods or minimally processed foods.

  • Avoid Sugary Foods and Drinks:
    This is one of the best things we can do for our health. Sugary foods and drinks can be high in calories and low in nutrients, which can contribute to weight gain, poor nutrition, and a range of health issues.

  • Be and Buy Local
    By choosing to shop locally, we can reduce our carbon footprint by reducing the transportation needed. By supporting local businesses, we can also help create a more vibrant and connected community, which can positively impact our overall well-being.

  • Limit Screen Time:
    Reducing screen time not only benefits your health but also reduces energy consumption. Consider going for a walk or doing other physical activities instead of watching TV, using a mobile device, or using a computer.

  • Practice Intermittent Fasting:
    Intermittent fasting can help you consume less food, reducing your carbon footprint and giving your body a much-needed break to clean up and restore; plus a way to lose weight and potential health benefits such as metabolic improvements and even improved brain functions; read more.

  • Adopt a Circular Mindset:
    Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Opt for products made from recycled materials, and share or donate items that you no longer need. By adopting a circular mindset, we can reduce waste and pollution and help protect the Earth.

All of these either improve our Health or reduce our Cabon Footprint; impact on the Earth.

Be your Game Avatar in Life


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”.
