WE MAKE EXERCISE FUN AND REWARDING BY USING AUDIO DRAMA TO COMBINE IMAGINATION AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Imaginative is a startup intersecting exercise with entertainment to transform workouts into immersive exercise experiences.
We're doing this because we're horrified by the statistics showing that physical inactivity has now overtaken smoking as a global cause of early death, and want to do something about it.
We know not everyone enjoys exercising, but we also know everyone enjoys being entertained, so we wondered: what if we could put the two together? Create affordable, accessible "exer-tainment" products with zero barrier to entry that could be used anywhere, anytime?
Our mission is to get millions of people who think they 'don't like' exercise not only willingly engaging in it but enjoying, with their heads and their hearts, the physical activity that we know will improve - if not save - their lives.
Our first product is an audio fitness adventure app called Apocalypse Survival Training, a comedy adventure series in which every episode is a workout. AST is a binaural, high fidelity full production audio drama that incorporates three different kinds of workout - running, bodyweight circuit and yoga/stretch - into an ongoing storyline. Part audio book, part group exercise class, part personal trainer, it places the user as the main character in a group of survivors who must survive - and end - an alien invasion of a parallel reality London.
