Jackson Bliton lives in two worlds.

In the real world, this 25-year-old Californian lives with his girlfriend, picks up heavy stuff in the gym, devours chicken and butter lettuce with ranch dressing—you know, pretty typical human stuff. Then, at least once per day, Jackson hops on the Internet and transforms into Bajheera, a human warrior with a beard as mighty as his sword.

Bajheera battles against fearsome orcs, humanoid bovine creatures called tauren, the living dead, and other creatures you’ve correctly assumed are not of this world (hopefully).

Fire-breathing dragons, elves, creepy-looking fish monsters, and fantastical possibilities all exist within a video game called World of Warcraft, in which Jackson—er, Bajheera—spends a majority of his day, decapitating trolls and yelling fervently at his computer monitor, while tens of thousands of people around the world watch him do it.

Thanks to the power of video platforms like YouTube® and Twitch, he plays video games for the masses and gets paid to do it. (For those not in-the-know, Twitch is a platform that allows you to live broadcast yourself doing something—usually playing a video game.)

Yup, you heard right. Jackson makes a living off slaying baddies in this virtual world for 6-8 hours a day. That’s on top of making YouTube® videos about playing said video games and interacting with his fans, while still staying in killer shape. Quite simply, Jackson is one jacked gamer.

Every superhero has an origin story. Jackson’s knack for fitness sprouted at a young age: “Right from the beginning [my dad] would have me do push-ups. We’d do like 50 push-ups, and he’d do them with me,” Jackson recalls of his childhood.

Then, one day, the wee-young Jackson was mesmerized by buff cartoon characters on his TV. “I started watching a lot of Dragonball Z and thought, ‘Oh my god, those guys are so cool! Dad, I need to go to the gym. I need to try and save the world.'”

I suspect that, to this day, Jackson still admires those anime characters, as evidenced by the Dragonball Z shirt he wore during our interview. Thankfully, Jackson didn’t take any hairstyle cues from the Dragonball Z characters, although he did finally get to the gym with his dad and iron out his skills in the weight room. Throughout his adolescence, Jackson put time in the gym with his dad, even if he had running practice beforehand.

For Jackson, the gym is a stress reliever that allows him to build himself in any way he likes—similar to developing a World of Warcraft character, in fact. “There’s no greater feeling than depleting everything you’ve got [in the gym] and then sitting down to play a video game like World of Warcraft,” Jackson says, “in which you can continue the leveling process, after you’ve leveled yourself in real life, and then continue your training in a virtual world.”
