What is the HealthyWager?
The HealthyWager is an individual weight loss challenge customized for you with big cash rewards. You select your weight loss goal, the amount of time you want to lose it in, and your monthly wager. After entering your stats into the Prize Calculator, you'll be given a prize offer. You can play with the calculator as many times as you would like without commitment. When you've found the right goal and prize combination, make your bet and get started. There is no catch -- if you lose the weight, you win the money and will be paid promptly via check or PayPal. We have paid out millions of dollars to winners in our challenges. We provide fun and accountability; you provide the effort! If you lose, your money goes to support HealthyWage, including prizes for people who win. The only question is: will you be among the winners?
How does the HealthyWager work?
The HealthyWager allows you to place a "bet" on your weight loss. At registration, you lay down your bet (you can pay all at once or once per month for the duration of your challenge). We pay your prize if you have achieved and maintained your goal at the end of the challenge. You have both your starting and ending weight verified using our verification system.
Is HealthyWage for real? Where can I find a HealthyWage review?
We are surprised that we sometimes still get questions like these, but we know that when it comes to the Internet, you can never be too sure and you want to make sure there are no HealthyWage complaints. Here are some things to keep in mind that prove that HealthyWage is a real, bona fide, legitimate business with a strong reputation, and that HealthyWage is not a scam:
Public Testimonials and Coverage.
In addition to the sheer size of the HealthyWage press page and the credibility of the press outlets (e.g., Wall Street Journal, Consumer Reports, Good Morning America, etc.), pay close attention to the articles themselves and watch some of the videos: you will hear HealthyWage reviews directly from HealthyWage participants and corporate clients (you do not need to participate through a company — you can participate on your own) who give glowing reviews of HealthyWage.
A few examples (there are many, many more):
- Ben Carnes (a schoolteacher and football coach in Westfield, IN) told NPR in this recent article all about his HealthyWage bet and weight loss. Ben won about $1,500 for losing over 100 pounds.
- Barbara W. (a retired Vanderbilt nurse) told The Tennessean (one of Tennessee's principal newspapers) in a recent article: "the old saying 'If it sounds too good to be true it probably is' does NOT apply in this case . . . One of the best investments you can make is an investment in your health." (Barbara made $669 for losing 30 pounds).
- Jennifer D. had her HealthyWage weight loss success story shared by Good Housekeeping in a recent article. Jennifer won $4,800 for losing 102 pounds.
- Frank Norman shows off the check with his winnings after a successful HealthyWager challenge. Watch his full interview from Raleigh's ABC11.
- Tessa Tribbett shared how she leveraged HealthyWage to help her lose weight and improve her overall health in a recent article with Go San Angelo, part of the USA Today Network. Tessa won over $5,610 for losing 87 pounds.

Large Organizations Trust HealthyWage.
HealthyWage has hundreds of large corporate clients who have offered our programs to employees for years. Note: You do not have to participate through your company — you can participate on your own. As proof that we have had these clients and that they — and their employees — have liked HealthyWage, here are some third-party-published testimonials. This Employee Benefits News article describes how Domino's has commissioned HealthyWage multiple times to offer nationwide HealthyWage challenges (EBN is a major trade publication). The article features a Domino's executive giving a positive review about HealthyWage. As another example, check out this Washington Post article following the HealthyWage experience of employees at Meritus Health, a major DC-area health system and HealthyWage client. There are literally hundreds of other examples of participants and corporate clients describing their experience with HealthyWage. Check out our press page.
