It's time to get Zombie Fit!

With all the public attention focused on zombies in the recent on-screen drama The Walking Dead, me and my wife got round to thinking about practical zombie musings, like: 
  • Can zombies swim?
  • Do zombies get embarrased when they trump?
  • And the biggest question of all... how long would both of us survive in a zombie apocalypse?
Now's the time you really do not want to get a cramp in your leg!

Now I like to think I am calm in a crisis. I possess logical thought processes and I have good practical skills. But when it comes down to it, how do any of us know what we would be like if the undead arrived for dinner unexpectedly.

So we looked at the practical issues concerning survival in a newly apocalypical town.

Issue 1: Fitness
I, like many others, have the kind of work that sees me sitting in front of a computer screen for most of the day. I'd say I was healthy, but could do with a little toning up here and there. I like my food, but as the father to two little kids, I try to watch what I eat. I have to admit though, the thought of running for my life up and down the streets, makes me realise I am not as fit as I used to be. It's more likely you'd see me bent double by a killer stitch, while zombies chow down on my ass!

Issue 2: Survival Skills
Now I used to be a cub scout, so I know my way around basic fire building skills and I come armed with an arsenal of camp fire songs. But give me a rabbit to skin or a fishing rod and I'm left hungry. So brushing up on the practical skills can't bring anything but benefits to my survival chances. Plus, whoever survives is less likely to want to get rid of the one person who can make fires, cook a rabbit stew and whittle a nice wooden chair to sit on.

So my wife and I have given ourselves a time limit of around twelve weeks to shape up and hone our skills so that we can become zombie fit, not zombie fodder!
You can join us in our quest by emailing us about your interest, or simply follow our progress through the next few months. Just remember as you're running away from a horde of flesh hungry running dead, it'll be us zooming off ahead of you.

As someone famous once said, "we don't need to run the fastest, we just need to run faster than the slowest person in front of us". Is that person going to be you, or are you going to be zombie fit too?

We'll be posting up some training schedules, free PDFs and other Zombie Fit details. So make sure to keep visiting or sign up for our newsletter to keep updated of our adventure.
