You Can Now Pretend You’re Training For The Apocalypse With New Fitness App

You Can Now Pretend You’re Training For The Apocalypse With New Fitness App

Ever since lockdown began, many of us have been forced to take our exercise regimes indoors, with home workouts, Zoom classes and living room HIIT sessions becoming the norm.

Exercising from home can get a little repetitive, but now, an exciting new fitness app, Apocalypse Survival Training, transports you into another world so you can workout from home while saving the world from an apocalypse.

Who said lockdown was boring?

The action-packed audio app will transport users into another world, immersing them into an equipment-free workout.

As a secret agent among a group of survivors, it's your job to halt the alien invasion taking place in London. It's a little like an audiobook, but with sound effects, a soundtrack and an "immersive 3D audio environment".

Your mission will take place over three types of workout - running, bodyweight circuits and yoga and stretching. Each activity will equip you with the skills and strength you need to put an end to - and survive - the apocalyptic invasion.

The workouts are easy to follow for beginners or more experienced fitness fanatics, while the app also provides visual support for each exercise and you'll be able to choose from beginner or advanced options.

The unique workouts can be carried out anywhere and all you'll need is your smartphone, tablet and a pair of headphones.

Founder Adele Andersen has worked in the fitness industry for over a decade and came up with the idea in a bid to create entertaining ways to stay active, without getting bored.

Adele told Metro: "I hope we can flip the mindset of people who think they hate exercise - or specific types of exercise, like running, or circuit training, or stretching - by showing them that it can be fun.

"And then help them reflect and realise how positively it impacts their well-being. If those people start exercising with AST and keep going after, I've done my job properly."

The app is available on both iOS and Android and can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.

This could actually be the boost we need to peel ourselves off the sofa for the first time today...
