Struggling to kickstart your fitness and burn those lockdown pounds? Why not rescue London from an alien invasion?
Fitness During Lockdown
Lockdown saw people taking their fitness more seriously. Whilst lying on the couch is fun for a few days, most people found that the way to work off those lockdown pounds, or stay sane, was to kickstart their fitness. As such, running apps like the NHS Couch to 5K saw a 92% increase in downloads between 2019 and 2020.
Audio fitness content has also boomed during the lockdown period. Many people are looking for a much-needed break from screen fatigue and, as such, are benefitting from audio cues. Additionally, people have reported looking for new and creative ways to stay motivated and engaged.
Train for an Apocalypse
With everything going on in the world, an apocalypse is not beyond the realms of imagination. Luckily, Apocalypse Survival Training is the latest fitness app, fusing adventure and bootcamp. The audio nature of the app allows for a well-needed break from your screens whilst the storyline sets you on the path for adventure.
Adele Andersen, founder of the app, says “We have seen over 150% increase in downloads over the lockdown compared to the same period in 2019. Users are looking for something a little different to give them that push they need at home, to get moving, and keep moving.”
This audio fitness adventure places you in the centre of an epic storyline: an alien invasion of an apocalyptic London. The high-quality audio production includes full cast, composition, sound effects and binaural processing so that you really feel part of the action.
Total Body Workout
Over the course of the story, there are three workout types giving you the survival skills needed for each stage of the apocalypse. These three workout types are Speed (running), Strength (body-weight circuits) and Control (stretch and core). Through these, you can earn rewards such as top-secret intel to help save the world.
All of the training programmes have been written by experts and each exercise is fully instructed by characters. Both new and experienced fitness fans can benefit from these exercises, as they cater for a variety of abilities.
