At FBG we’ve heard a million reasons that people give up on their health or fitness goals, and believe us when we say, we’ve heard at least a million or more crazy ways that people have tried to stay on track with those goals! It’s not easy stuff; we get it — the struggle IS real.
So we’re pretty excited to tell you that we think we’ve found a way that some of you may not have yet tried, and we think it’s a good one! It’s backed by science (do you even science?!) and brings new meaning to the idea of being rewarded for improving your health!
HealthyWage offers cash prizes for successfully achieving weight-loss and activity goals. What’s the catch? None really! You make a wager on your own goal — say, $50 a month that you’ll lose at least 30 pounds within six months, and you get to work! You choose your weight-loss goal, how much you’re willing to wager that you’ll achieve it, and the time frame that you’ll achieve it in, and HealthyWage provides the incentive! There’s even a calculator that you can use to figure out the biggest return on your healthy weight-loss investment!
They provides tools, support and importantly — accountability — to help get you to your goal. When you achieve your goal (say, that 30 pounds in six months), you win your money back, PLUS an additional prize! The research is sound — it has shown time and again that having your own skin in the game increases your likelihood of success, even more so than just the opportunity to win a prize at the end!
Genius, is it not?!
Does it work? You betcha! Here’s some proof:
Check it out: this amazing and beautiful lady, Danielle, lost almost 130 pounds!
She won more than $1,300 for her troub … effort!

And let’s be clear — this is not just for the ladies! It is Fit Bottomed Dudes’ Week after all — so gentleman, we give you Greg!

HealthyWage is also offering a special prize just for FBG readers: if you sign up for your own personal weight loss bet by March 31, they’ll add an extra $50 to your prize payout when you win.
