With one epic story unfolding over three types of workout, this is a new immersive narrative exercise experience to give you the speed, strength and control you need to get Apocalypse Ready.
Step into an alien invasion comedy adventure storyline in which you are the main character of a binaural audio drama with a full cast, action packed soundtrack and dramatic sound design to transport you into an apocalypse only you can bring to an end.
Start with a running episode to meet your handler Skyler, collect your survival team and receive your mission.
Continue with a bodyweight circuits episode under the tuition of ballistic Drill Sergeant Hardman who swaps sweat for intel, followed by a mindful yoga and stretch session with super-gran Beatrice, before tackling the next running session.
Throughout the workouts, help Skyler uncover who is responsible for the invasion and keep the rest of the team safe from the many dangers encountered along the way.
If you’ve never laughed through your push ups or run for your life with an unnecessarily irate alien snapping on your heels, try out this exertainment app combining entertainment with exercise to make working out fun!

Ratings and Reviews
A truly enjoyable way to get fit
I’ve been using this app for just over a month and I’ve already lost half an inch off my waist.
I’ve tried running and exercising before but got bored easily and gave up pretty quickly. I’ve had other apps like 7 minutes but nothing has made me continue to go back, after a week I’m bored and I give up. Not with AST though! I’m fully addicted.
The storyline means that I want to do more exercise as I want to know what happens next.
I’m not a massive fan of running, I used to do it because I felt I ought to, not because I want to. But with AST the story takes my mind off the fact I’m running and makes me push myself harder.
It tells you how to run properly, which has done wonders for my running. It also tells you how to do the different exercises properly in the strength episodes which has taught me loads!
I love the control episodes, they’re very relaxing.
I push myself harder when doing the app, I’m quite lazy when at the gym or out running. If it gets hard I usually just slow down or stop what I’m doing and move on rather than push through. Because I have someone in my ear telling me to do the exercises I push myself to do them for as long as physically possible.
So if you want an app that will make you want to exercise regularly, is varied and instructive then this is the one for you! It’s fun and I can’t wait for the next 10 episodes.
Makes running actually enjoyable
I was looking for a new workout routine as I had got bored with my other one and a friend suggested this. I tried the first episode and was hooked. It made running entertaining and I actually was looking forward to the next ones! The strength exercises are great (and I feel it the next day and truly hate mountain climbers) because you really feel that you’ve worked out, and you are distracted by the story. I’ve not done yoga before and found that I liked that too. Marvellous - can’t wait for Part 2!
Geek fitness for all shapes and sizes
I backed the Kickstarter for this and have been a beta tester. I’m a 50+ couch potato but have appreciated the range of activities (not just running, but core strength and Pilates too) and that there are options to suit those of us with limited speed/strength while still catering for fitter folk too. The characters and plot line are engaging. I’m looking forward to using the full version now it’s available.

Thanks Aligubbs, and thank you for being such an awesome beta tester through our many beta iterations!
