Nerd Fitness is one of our favorite fitness communities, that tailors the motivation in a way to inspire us geeks and nerds, that still want to survive against the undead.

I bet you used to laugh at anyone tooling around on a moped. Laugh no more, since it’s such a versatile, utilitarian mode of transportation in the zombie apocalypse. The Survival Motoped is a “military-inspired super hauler” designed to be your motorized pack mule. You can carry pretty much all of your survival gear, and travel 400-500 miles before needing to siphon more fuel from abandoned vehicles. Built for the creative survivalist, the Motoped will get you where you need to go.
When you’re caught in a tight spot, and need to take down a Z quietly, you should probably be reaching for a blade. Look, this isn’t the movies. Silencers are just a fancy hollywood name for sound suppressors. You’re not going to be be sending zombies to their maker with a “phew” sound. You may not be totally silent, but there are still advantages to having a good suppressor. The Silencer Co Osprey Suppressor works with pistols chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45ACP. Plus, it’s shape still has all the internal volume it needs to get the job done, without interfering with your factory sights. Let’s face it, an unobstructed sight picture is far more important that a few more decibels shaved off of the loud bark of your pistol. Best of all, you won’t be damaging your hearing if you have to rely on your pistol for an extended zombie engagement.
For any fan of the undead, Shaun of the Dead is most likely going to be sitting pretty high on the list of best zombie movies ever made. This is more than just a mindless movie, seeking viewers to eat their flesh, this is a movie with heart. It’s really a romantic comedy that happens to have zombies in it.
Great pacing, excellent writing, and amazing comedic timing, this movie is sure to live on as an all-time great. We highly recommend adding this to your DVD/Blu Ray library.
Throughout the month of October, we’ll be tossing in a few media picks that you should probably get your hands on. We’re kicking it off with the one, the only, Night of the Living Dead. The George Romero cult classic that started it all. This is truly a classic for all zombie fans, and is a must see film.
It’s a raw, unapologetic movie that was truly ahead of its time when it was released in 1968, and was the first in a trilogy, before Dawn of the Dead, and Day of the Dead. Zombie movies to this day still owe everything to Romero’s work.

Is your rifle of choice the ubiquitous AR-15? A dependable, reliable, and combat proven design that can easily get the job done against the undead. But the civilian models are all semi automatic only. Not a problem, when you’ve got plenty of time to place your shots. However, zombies sometimes crash the party in numbers, and a higher rate of fire is the best way to greet the undead uninvited. The Slide Fire SSAR-15 SBS is a highly inventive method of utilizing your rifle’s recoil to simulate fully automatic fire rates, without having to alter any of the inner workings of the weapon. It’s time to rock and roll, survivor! Watch the videos, and prepare to be amazed.
You know what grinds my gears? Screwdrivers. It’s a real hassle to constantly turn and readjust for another turn. Trying to keep the spinning, without readjusting is just asking to drop the screwdriver. Sure ratcheting screwdrivers solve all of those issues, but let’s be real…why not double that efficiency? The Kobalt Double-drive Screwdriver cuts that time in half! No matter which way you’re twisting the handle, the gears are putting in the work. The convenient thumb switch also allows you to quickly reverse direction, so even if you’re reaching at an awkward angle with only one free hand, you can get the job done. Twice as fast!
Slingshot, or bow? Yes. The Survival Slingshot Archer, with tactical flashlight fills both roles nicely. Having the ability to fire standard size arrows from a compact platform gives you a tremendous advantage, and the Trophy Ridge whisker biscuit gives you that ability. It also folds out of the way when you just need to sling some steel shot into the brainpan of a zombie, unlucky enough to stumble into your danger zone. Why choose a slingshot, or bow when you’ve got both?
