3 Ways To Get Paid To Get Fit

3 ways to earn money being healthy

It’s hard to stay motivated to hit the gym. For some added motivation there are apps that will pay you to get fit. With that little bit of extra motivation, you’ll be more likely to reach your fitness goals.

Check out these three ways to earn money for working out.


If you use a Fitbit, MyFitnessPal, RunKeeper, MapMyRide, Twitter or any one of dozens of fitness apps to track your health, you can earn cash rewards by connecting your apps. You can earn points for:

  • Walking/daily steps
  • Any form of exercise
  • Sleeping
  • Logging food/calories
  • Weighing yourself daily
  • Tweeting healthy Tweets
  • Taking a survey
  • Participating in research

Simply sign up, connect your app, and start earning points.

HealthyWage provides weight loss and step challenges for individuals. You can also have your company sign up and participate.

How it works:

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.
  1. Setup an account and undergo a verified weigh-in.
  2. Set a weight loss goal and then place a bet with your money.
  3. Once you reach your goal and win the bet, you’re rewarded with money via PayPal or Amazon credit.

HealthyWage has been featured on NPR, the Today show, Good Morning America, FoxNews, ABC, and CNN.
