It works—and it's a lot of fun!
Losing weight as a team means you keep on-track and encourage each other to reach your weight loss goals! There’s also the excitement of cash prizes for reaching achievable goals. Each team that reaches 6% weight loss wins a cut of the pot! Not to mention the health benefits! Participants in HealthyWage's contests have lost hundreds of thousands of pounds in the last few years. Teams are forming now! You must be associated with a participating employer.
Absolutely! Jackpot is the best way to lose weight with your friends. Lose weight together and make a few bucks at the same time! Plus, it's the more the merrier in the Jackpot: more teams means a bigger pot! Just invite your friends to play and tell them the name of your company so they know which Jackpot Challenge to enter.
The Jackpot Challenge is all about teams of 4-9 striving to lose 6% of their body weight. Each team puts money into the pot, and at the end of the challenge that money (less a 25% administration fee and any uncollected fee installments) is split among all successful teams! The bigger the challenge, the bigger the pot!
The start date of the challenge is March 2nd – the first day to get your weight verified.
The entrance fee may vary from challenge to challenge. Refer to the sign-up page for the specific amount. The entrance fee is used to fund the cash prize pot – the more players, the larger the prizes available!
If you selected to pay in installments (as opposed to one single payment), your account will be charged every 30 days. Please note payments are processed exactly 30 days apart and will not occur on the same date of each month.
The Jackpot Challenge is based on team support and motivation, which provides accountability and success. To make it lots of fun, each week, we provide you with tips and tricks to help you and your team stay on track. We also have fun games every 2 weeks!
You need a team, yes. But team sizes are now flexible and can be from four to nine players in size. We've found that having a team is a great way to stay motivated. You can have your family, friends or co-workers on your team. If you don't have a team of five, don't worry—we will match you up with new friends when the contest starts (we make sure everyone is on a team).
Ask them to visit the HealthyWage Jackpot offered to employees and guests of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies sign up page, as promoted on posters and/or emails in your organization. They'll need to use this link to take part. After they register, they will then choose your team from a list.
You can, but you don't need to. Just let them know that they need to register online at the HealthyWage Jackpot offered to employees and guests of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies sign up page, After they register, they will arrive at the page with a list of teams and will be able to choose your team from the list.
No, but the longer you wait after the contest starts, the less time you'll have to lose weight!
No! However, each team must consist of at least one employee from the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies.
We want to keep the Jackpot fair! We ask you to weigh in either by video or with a 3rd party verifier just twice: once at the beginning (anytime on or after the start date) and once at the end (within two weeks before, or on, the end date) of the program.
There are two ways to verify your weight:
1. Make a video and upload it to our website -- detailed instructions here.
2. Have ANY fitness professional (e.g., health club worker) or health professional (e.g., doctor, nurse), including your Live for Life™ Team witness your weigh-in and sign your VerifyMe! Form.
The My Live for Life™ Web site is designed to help you on your journey to better health. To learn all about the weight management resources available to you, visit the My Live for Life website or contact your local Live for Life™ Team.
We take the average of each team member's weight loss percentage. To calculate your individual weight loss percentage, take the number of pounds you have lost divided by your starting weight.
If someone on your team doesn't get a weigh-out, that's okay—we will count their weight loss as 0% for purposes of computing your team's average weight loss. But note that all members must get an initial weigh-in.
Yes. In order to encourage healthy weight loss, we only count weight loss up to 16.6% per person. Any individual weight loss beyond 16.6% does not count for the challenge. So, the winning team is the one where each team member gets closest to the cap. Note: it is OKAY to lose more than 16.6% (you won't be disqualified), but any extra weight you lose above 16.6% will not be counted toward your team's weight loss average for the challenge.
No. But you can sign-up if you've recently had your baby, if your doctor says it's okay.
Only with advanced doctor approval. Contact us to discuss this before signing up.
No! You and your teammates can live in different parts of the country or even the world! You can get weighed-in at different gyms and/or doctors.
No, all weigh-ins are free. You are under no obligation to any health club weigh-in station. You are encouraged you to join your on-site Live for Life™ Fitness center for support.
HealthyWage will only issue refunds before the start date of the challenge or in cases where medical issues or pregnancy prevent you from continuing the program (the absolute last day to request a medical refund is the last day of the challenge -- we're sorry that there can be no exceptions).
No. No one else will see your actual weight (not even your employer). Only your percentage weight loss will be visible to other users.
Ribbons are a fun way to keep track of your effort and achievement, and research shows that you're more likely to lose weight if you divide your goals into bite-size mini-goals. The ribbons take this concept to another level by making the mini-goals social (people can see when you earn a ribbon) and fun. You can earn ribbons for taking certain actions and for achieving certain milestones throughout the challenge. Ribbons are not required, but they are important because they improve your odds of success.
