Apocalypse Survival Training: An Audio fitness Adventure App

Everything is better with zombies, apparently even things that don't have zombies in. For example, things that are never meant to have zombies in and don't actually have zombies in. You know... like things with Aliens in.


Apocalypse Survival Training is an audio fitness adventure app and there are no zombies in it... none. However, in a recent interview with The Metro their AST App on Kickstarter (already funded and now just five to go) was called a Zombie Program, and there's no zombies in it and zombie isn't mentioned once, anywhere, except maybe here... and in the Metro.


In the eyes of the mainstream media being chased by a zombie and being chased by an alien are on a par, they're all monsters right, eating your brain or inserting a probe, it's all the same right?

Sean Page of the Ministry of Zombies, renown Zombie Survival Expert and author of The Zombie Survival Apocalypse Owners Manual, has been watching the skies of late. The threat is just as real and he has recently released The Alien Invasion Resistance Manual... coincidence... we think not.

With interest piqued we got chatting to Adele Kirby, a self-confessed geek (we like her already) and writer who is completely addicted to exercise and also happens to be the extravagantly energetic founder of Imaginactive, the company behind Apocalypse Survival Training. So despite the fact there really are no zombies in it, at all, we think it's pretty awesome and if you like zombies, the chances are you'll love this.

Ever wonder how a geek keeps themselves motivated to work out, go for a run or keep hitting the gym day after day, year after year? Says Adele "I love imagining being in extraordinary situations which require me to be stronger, faster and braver than I really think I am."

If you're a nerd who hits the gym, you'll relate to this immediately and if you're a nerd who wants to make a change in their fitness, for health or aesthetic reasons, try it. I am unashamed to say that I personally started working out after I saw Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan the Barbarian and I wanted to play a Barbarian character in a Live Roleplaying Game. When my love of zombies grew, Crossfit made perfect sense. Life is more awesome, when you can do more awesome things.

For years friends of Adele's were asking her how they could make exercise more fun as boot camps, group sessions and variety only go so far. How do you make exercise more fun? Apocalypse Survival Training is the answer!


Apocalypse Survival Training is an app delivered radio play with each episode as a workout. The story is centered around a group of London based survivors of an Alien Invasion. You can take part at any level, at home or even better in the great outdoors. It is progressive and each workout cycles between strength circuits, running sessions and holistic training to challenge your focus, resilience, imagination and intuition.

Interactive adventure fitness apps are an awesome way to get you moving and inspire you in a nerdy way when you otherwise might not have the internal motivation to do something active. And if you're already active they can really help you push yourself that extra mile. It'll certainly be fun... kinda like a solo live action immersive adventure in digital stereo!

The Kickstarter is funded so you know it's gonna happen and has just 5 days to run. The App will be available for iPhone and Android phones, so if you wanna find out if you have what it takes go support the Apocalypse Survival Training Kickstarter and keep your tin-foil hat ready!

I'd definitely rather have an interactive audio adventure KICK my ass than let the aliens PROBE it for the sake of 'research.'

The truth is out there... do you have what it takes to survive?


It's the Zombie (or Alien) Apocalypse...  Let's Play

  3. How to Make Pemmican The Ultimate Survival Food

    Invented by the natives of North America.

    Pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

    These people spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

    People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at

    How folks 150 years ago did it!

    These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.
