What's the best way to get out of a training rut? Well, that's easy. Get chased by Zombies.
With even the quickest glance at the Zombies, Run! website, it's easy to see why more than 150,000 runners have purchased this app. After all, who wouldn't be inspired (or at least intrigued) by this tagline:
Get Fit. Escape Zombies. Become a hero.
Zombies, Run! combines your favorite music with "gripping missions" on which you collect supplies while avoiding roaming hoardes of zombies, according to the website. While you run outside or in a gym, you collect items like medicine and ammo that can help you build and protect your base, as well as discover the truth about the zombie apocolypse.
If you want to amp up the intensity, you can use the "Zombie Chase" interval training.
Cost: $3.99 for 5k training or $7.99 for the Epic Adventure
