Attention video gamers. Do you want to get in shape? Now’s your chance.

August 2, 2010

For years I’ve been a few things…specifically, a martial artist, a video gamer, and an exercise enthusiast. What I’m doing now with the Paul Gale Network, is providing what I can (be it entertainment, video game news, martial arts tutorial, health tips, etc.) to the world.

How does this work? All you have to do is write a comment in this box and I’ll reply back to you. If it’s a simple question, I’ll write back immediately. If it’s a question that requires a more thought-out answer, I will still respond, but later make an entirely separate article that pertains specifically to your request.

You can ask about a workout routine for your chest, how to perform a traditional Karate kata, what are some healthy foods that assist in muscle recovery, and just about anything else. Likewise, this is a video game website too, so if you have any gaming related questions, I’ll be happy to get to them as well.

The reason why I’m reaching out to my video game brothers and sisters specifically in this article, is because we’re often thought to be an “unhealthy and sedentary” bunch, and my goal is to disprove that and turn us into a more well rounded, powerful group! So then, the invitation is open and now all you have to do is write to get something back.

Paul Gale the Personal Trainer

That’s me a couple weeks ago, during my 27th birthday celebration. It doesn’t matter how old you are or what your current shape/condition is, because I can cater to anyone’s needs. I’ve helped people with multiple sclerosis, those who have had strokes, brain anneurisms, paralysis, those that have suffered from accidents and malpractice, the old, the young, the heavyweights, the underweights, and everyone in between.

Paul Gale the Video Game Journalist

So I don’t appear as someone from “the outside” that’s trying to capitalize on the video game market, please know that I’m as hardcore a gamer as they come. I love video games. I eat, breathe, and sleep this industry as is evident by this picture with Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto and Mr. Satoru Iwata from Nintendo. I’m a gamer just like all of you and want to help out my online friends from all over the world, achieve their goals.

Paul Gale the Martial Artist

In 1987, when I was just 4 years old, I began to learn how to wrestle. When I was 7, I started taking my first traditional martial arts class, with it being Tae Kwon Do. From then until now (23 years later), I’ve become well versed in Kickboxing, Jiu-Jitsu, Shotokan Karate, and other fighting styles. If you have a personal defense question, in which knowing a little something to make yourself more confident when walking home, ask away.

Paul Gale the Video Game CHARACTER

Thank you for your time, and with that, I leave you with one final picture. Do you see the guy on the right? That’s me in Capcom‘s Street Fighter IV. This represents who I am, a true gamer, martial artist, and fitness buff, all wrapped into one, whose goal is to share my skills/hobbies/whatever with all of you.

How’d you get into Street Fighter 4? Lol.

Back in June, 2008, Capcom held a world wide contest for their 20th anniversary celebration of Street Fighter. The ultimate prize was getting to become your own character in Street Fighter IV.

The contest asked its participants to write in, telling Capcom why they felt they should win. I submit my story and one week later received an e-mail back from Capcom’s own Seth Killian, saying that I won.

It’s definitely a high point in my life. 🙂
