Gaming is fun for sure, but unfortunately, gamers usually tend to be too focused on keeping that Rank to the point of forgetting to take care of themselves. Long hours of gaming lead to a bad sitting posture, skipping food, and even being “salty” can put an emotional burden on a person. So Razer, in an effort to keep Pro-Esports athletes and amateurs in their prime shape, launched the Champion Start From Within program, an esports wellness program that promotes healthy and sustainable gaming habits for every gamer.
A healthy Player Always wins
Razer’s the Champions Start from Within program will include videos, articles, contacts, and events. To help Razer, in this movement they collaboratee with expert psychologists, physical therapists, nutritionists giving advice and practices to a healthy lifestyle while keeping that competitive spirit within.
Stay in top of your Game
The Champion Start Within program will focus on four key “verticals” to help players get back on track to their prime – physical activity, mental health, sleep, and nutrition. Lining up with multiple tasks, events, activities with assistance from professionals supervising aspiring athletes to a stress-free gaming experience.
All can be viewed through the official Razer™ Champions Start from Within web portal.
This all includes the following:
- Articles and videos providing advice and tips on how to take care of yourself physically and mentally while grinding for that next big tournament.
