Outpost 001 - Columbus, OH
This is where it started. Zombie-proofing. The fitness program custom-built and field-tested to increase your odds of not getting bit.
The first outbreak caught us by surprise. We were slow and weak. Easy pickings. Most in the region didn't make it. We gathered a small group of survivors in a secret location to form Outpost 001. We vowed never again to be unprepared for the inevitable and unstoppable challenges ahead.
We found a lot of info on how to prepare for disasters: shelter, water, food, communication. Sadly, in the area of physical readiness for the apocalypse, we didn't find much. After the initial outbreak, it became obvious that it didn't matter how many supplies you had stashed, or how many plans you had made. If you didn't have a certain amount of physical capability, fortitude, or resourcefulness, you would fail in the face of the unknown and the undead.
We holed up in Outpost 001 for months, researching and experimenting with whatever fitness protocols and gear we could find or make. We tested, modified, and ruthlessly cut. If it didn't make us stronger, faster, or more broadly fit, or was too complicated, or took a lot of space or time or resources, it was tossed. We chucked a lot.
In the end we found gold - the few things that worked every time. We organized them into the progressive zombie-proofing program - seven movements, five levels. We became strong, limber, explosive, lean, and well-conditioned. All who started the ZP program began building a level of fitness that increased their odds against the disaster that took so many after the first infection. Anyone who completed all the achievements became Zombie-proof. We knew we had to get this program out there so others could get ready too.
At Outpost 001 we've built a generator-backed Web server and are setting up an online HQ for the program. It will contain the best intel we could find on how to build superior physical capacity: training protocols, DIY gear resources, and the specific achievements for Leveling Up. Trainees begin as a New Recruit, and then can earn their way to Outbreak Survivor, Safehouse Defender, Horde Slayer, and finally Zombie-proof. Anyone completing the first level achievements will separate themselves from the doomed masses. Only the dedicated will make it all the way to the top.
We know we can't save everyone, but we'll save as many as we can. Begin your training, recruit whoever you find, and start a local Outpost. It's coming, and the future is counting on us.
Be ready when it all goes down.
