Appturday is a weekly post from our Social Media Editor where she rants, raves, and shares the apps she’s currently into. This week, we’re covering the Zombies, Run! app.
Like most people, I struggle with motivating myself to get fit. Finding a workout that appeases my lazy ass and gets me to move is nearly impossible. That being said, I’m always up for a good app, and when my friends told me about Zombies, Run! and showed me this spooky AF trailer, I HAD to download it.
Picture this: a zombie apocalypse has taken place and you’re one of the last people to survive, which makes you the hero on a mission to save the most precious thing in the world — your life. That’s the beginning of Zombies, Run!, an immersive and totally dramatic game-slash-fitness app hybrid that effectively works with your fight or flight instinct and makes you run for your life, literally!
You choose a mission, enable tracking, choose your music and RUN! The whole apocalyptic feel comes to life when you hear comments like, “Collected a bottle of water,” or “Collected a med kit”. When you hear “Warning: Zombies approaching in (…) meters” is when you run. It keeps me motivated to run, even when I feel like my energy levels are dropping.
What makes Zombies, Run! especially engaging is the fact that you absolutely have to commit to your fitness routine in order to achieve some form of success. There’s no sugar coating things; if you don’t move you lose. It’s this hard love mentality that seems to work with motivating me. So go ahead and achieve your fitness goals with this unconventional, yet effective app. It’s Hauterfly approved, after all.
