Add This App! Excite Your Exercise with Zombies, Run!

In preparation for my October wedding, I've really been stepping up my health and fitness game. I've been taking the Advocare 24 Day Challenge to jump start my weight loss and change my diet lifestyle. And lately, I've starting to focus even more on adding exercise into my daily routine. 

Luckily, I've found an app that makes my daily walks and jogs fun and interesting! And yes, I'm serious... it's made exercising FUN! 

The app is called Zombies, Run! The story, of course, takes place in an apocalyptic world where zombies are roaming free. Through a series of radio broadcasts, that are speaking directly to you (you, being Runner 5,) you learn so many amazing back-stories and get delegated so many treacherous tasks. The app also uses either gps or a pedometer to track your walking/running distance and speed. The further you walk, the more items you pick up to help your home base. 

And the coolest part- every once in a while, you'll hear the announcement that zombies are close and you have to run! Then for one minute, you must pick up your pace by 20% to avoid being bit! It's such a fun motivator! 

Honestly, this app has made me look forward to exercising. It's like watching a movie... but you're in it! I think it's really innovative, awesome and a must-try for anyone looking to add some excitement to your daily routine. I've only been using it for about a week so I have some much more of the story to listen to and I absolutely can't wait for what happens next!


How do you keep your workouts exciting?!
