Zombies, Run!

Now there are a couple of versions of this app. Zombie, Run! and Zombie, Run! 5K. This app takes you out running while gathering supplies for your base. It will have you slow down or speed up depending on where you are in the story.

Eventually, there will be a zombie horde you will have to run from. If you don't, you lose. If you need to take a break be sure to pause the zombies. This app is free but offers purchases for more stories. Zombies, Run! is available for both Android and Apple devices.

BattleSuit Runner Fitness

Like the Zombie, Run! app this is an app for runners. As you run the app will tell you your mission objectives which will be affected by your movement. You will either need to slow down or speed up to complete missions. When you do that, you level up your BattleSuit to help max out its capabilities for the next mission you do. This app costs $0.99 and is on Android and Apple devices.

Superhero Workout Trailer

This app brings out the hero in you or intends to. You are a pilot of a battlesuit trying to save the world. As you work out the game goes through missions that you must complete by following the guy on the screen.

The app does have motion tracking so you don't just get to sit there and do nothing. But it may take some time to stand your phone up securely on a table so the camera can track your movements. This app is $2.99 on Apple and Android devices.
