Work out from home with story-based fitness app Apocalypse Survival Training where you are a secret agent trying to save London from an alien invasion whilst getting fitter with running, circuits and yoga workouts.
Transport yourself into another world with Apocalypse Survival Training, an audio fitness adventure app where you are a secret agent trying to save London from an alien invasion.
It’s a totally immersive workout experience with sound effects provided by a BAFTA award winning game sound designer, so you’ll feel as if those aliens really are breathing down your neck!
You don’t need any equipment to do the workouts, which are seamlessly integrated into a comedy action adventure story where you join a quirky bunch of survivors to help try and save the planet.
Think of it like an audiobook, but with full cast, soundtrack and sound effects, and produced into a high fidelity immersive 3D binaural audio environment.
The story takes place episodically over three types of workout: running, bodyweight circuits and yoga/stretch, to give you the speed, strength and control you need to survive an apocalyptic alien invasion.
The workouts are designed to be easy to follow by audio for new or returning exercisers, while also being challenging for fitter survivors.
Extensive coaching is carried out in an entertaining and encouraging manner and the app provides additional visual and audio support for all exercises, with a choice of Intro or Advanced options.
With only a smartphone or tablet and a pair of headphones, you can now transform your workouts into unique exercise experiences, unlike anything else you’ve ever tried, which can be performed anywhere, anytime and with anyone.
Imaginactive founder Adele Andersen combines a decade of working in the fitness industry as a group exercise instructor and personal trainer with a lifetime of being a geek and writer to create accessible workouts within a vivid time-and-reality bending dramatic narrative.
The audio production and compositions are by composer, producer and singer Rasmus Andersen and the sound design by BAFTA award-winning game sound designer Adam Hay.
And there’s more…
Imaginactive, the team behind Apocalypse Survival Training, are also releasing a series of free workout videos on You Tube during lockdown.
The story is as follows – after an alien broke into TALON (tactical and Logistical Operational Nexus) HQ based at London’s Shard, it is under emergency quarantine. With no-one able to get in or out until the alien is captured,
Commander Ironside has enlisted an agent, Bay, to help him make a home workout for TALON recruits preparing for their next physical assessment. That’s YOU!
