Win up to $10,000 by making a "bet" on your own weight loss, or by participating in one of our many weight loss and fitness challenges. There’s a reason we paid out millions to our participants last year - our challenges are fun, effective, and people love to win money for losing weight!
According to one of our participants, “HealthyWage has flipped on a switch that I just couldn’t seem to get clicked on by myself. Not sure, or what science is behind it, but this...is astounding!”
Time and again, we've provided participants with the motivation to get healthier that they've been searching for. In fact, 45% of our participants report weight loss¹ when participating in a HealthyWage Challenge, with an average prize payout of $1224². Oh, and we DO know the science behind it. We’re kind of nerdy like that!
Check out some of the features you’ll enjoy with the HealthyWage app:
- Take and post-victory and before-and-after photos
- Participate with a vibrant community for support and accountability
- Keep track of your weight loss and your progress toward hitting your goal (and winning money!)
- Track your step activity throughout the day
- Create and submit your beginning and ending weigh-in verification videos
- Access your winnings to cash out or begin another challenge
- Keep an eye on your standing among other players
- Build friendships, get inspired by others success, and practice your best cheerleading skills
- Easily find and enter new challenges
There are 4 different types of HealthyWage Challenges you can join through the app. Those are:
Win up to $10,000 in an individual weight loss bet. Set the terms using the Prize Calculator (you choose your weight loss goal, wager amount, etc.). Play with the calculator all you like without commitment.
$10,000 Team Challenge
Teams of five compete to win cash prizes -- first prize is $10,000.
Individuals and teams try to achieve specific weight loss goals to earn a share of the pot.
Individuals and teams connect step devices to calculate a custom goal. Achieve the step goal and earn a share of the pot! Devices available: Apple Health (Apple phones and watches via HealthKit), Garmin and Fitbit.
HealthyWage's weight loss challenges have been featured on the Today show, Good Morning America, CNN, ABC News, NBC News, Fox News, and in The Wall Street Journal & The New York Times.
From our participants:
“HealthyWage is great for motivation. People have good intentions but lack the motivation. After having to stick with it for a period of time, that helps you change your habits for good and a healthy lifestyle becomes your new habit.”
"HealthyWage really exploited my competitive nature and used it to work for me!”
“There's nothing better than losing weight, feeling great, getting healthy AND winning money at the same time!"
"Putting up my own money definitely helped me win...the thought of the prize kept me focused. And, as weight started to come off, I was very excited about the process. It was not as hard as I thought it would be once I got my mind focused. I would definitely (and have) recommended this program to my friends! For people who are competitive, it will definitely motivate them to win!”
“I would not have seen the results I got without HealthyWage. It offers something totally unique and takes away all the excuse.”
Once you experience the thrill of HealthyWage, you'll never go back to struggling on your own. Try it and see for yourself! Start a diet, bet on it, and win big! Losing weight and getting active with HealthyWage pays off in more ways than one!

Weight Loss Journey
In the beginning, I didn’t think I needed an app to cause me to lose weight, but constantly checking my weight and putting it in and watching the percent rise as well as seen my overall progress very visually calls me to really enjoy the weight loss process.
Because I never wanted to watch my progress go backwards I did not have cheat days on the weekends. I also join multiple competitions one of which was in a team. From the very beginning of the competition, my team is in first place because we had a great way loss right off the bat. With the desire to never lose that position and being able to see each other’s percents, we had daily chats to keep our team moving in the right direction. I’ve hit my official weigh in and maxed out on the team competition. Despite that, I continue to wake up for 530 am runs and work outs.
Thank you Healthy Wage. I will do more challenges.

Hi, Jay and congrats on improving your health and gaining success with our HealthyWage challenges. We're so happy to hear you've found our challenges to be a motivating and positive experience in helping you in your wellness journey!
App needs a lot of work
Confusing navigation; create a dashboard for all challenges, instead of a menu. Too much “meaningless” info; who cares about ribbons they can’t see? Also, Heather Warnat needs to make it more clear and intuitive on how to sign yourself and a friend up for the same challenge. Knowing the sign-up steps prior to entering them would be most helpful. Nothing like trying to do a challenge with a friend, you both pay for it, then end up not getting credit for each other (something you couldn’t have known until AFTER signing up), because you did it together individually, and not one at a time via invite. That blows!
Tip: sign up one person at a time by invite only to get credit for linking friends!!
<tiny rant>: Two weeks into a challenge, some folks are at 105% - 150% of their goals - these seem like they should be red flags for “ringers.” HW: Are you REALLY investigating these people who may be taking money from others unethically? I have a lot of weight to lose, have no reason medically that would impede weight loss (my metabolic rate is fine), I work out 4-6 days per week for at least 90 min at a time (more on weekends) with a certified personal trainer; I eat clean, organic, and am exercising portion control, and I have nowhere near those numbers. Something stinks. </tiny rant>

Thank you for your feedback. You can contact our customer support team at any time so that they can retroactively apply the HealthyWager referral boost for both you and your friend. Just reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, we do police the challenges very rigorously. We recommended that all standings during the first few weeks of any challenge be taken with a grain of salt as people set used to using the platform. There are frequently user errors that account for the early, large losses. Don't worry - you'll see things level off as the challenge goes on.
Good premise, terrible execution
This is a great idea, and highly motivating. While I haven't completed a challenge yet, everything I've read tells me that this is legit. But OH MY GOD the app is an absolute disaster. I am enrolled in seven challenges right now, and yet there is nowhere I can go to see all my challenges listed with amounts, goal weights and important dates. You have to go to each individual challenge page in order to view this information for each challenge separately. When you're in multiple challenges, that makes tracking extremely difficult. And there's no visual tracking (i.e. a chart) at all. I can't even see how much money I've committed--not in total across the challenges, but not even for the individual challenges! Once you've committed to a challenge, the information on how MUCH you've committed just...disappears.
There's just really nothing good to say about the app itself. It needs to be burned down and rebuilt from scratch.I was torn between a 2-star and 3-star review, but went with a 3-star review because the program itself is sound. Just don't expect a good user experience.

Thanks for the input! We are working on improvements to make the app experience more consistent with the website experience. The app is 6 years newer than the website, so we honestly have just not had time yet to add all the web features, but we are working on it every single day and will have all the major features on the app in the next few months. Keep an eye out for upcoming updates! You can let us know of any additional features you'd like us to consider adding in the future by sending an email to email@example.com.
Also, if you haven't updated to the latest version of the app, please update it now to get the most current features.
