Create and customize your own challenge (at no cost to you) as a fun way for your small business, family, or community to lose weight and get healthy! Each participant pays an entry fee, which is added to the prize pot (less HealthyWage’s 25% admin fee). Every participant who achieves an individual weight loss of 6% or more wins an equal share of the pot. Winners typically DOUBLE their entry fee!
Participants pay an entry fee to sign up. They get a verified weigh-in at the beginning and at the end of the challenge. All participants or teams (depending on your selection) who achieve a 6% weight loss win their share of the prize pot (less the 25% administration fee).
There are two easy options for weight verification:
Download our mobile app (after you register) and follow the simple, on-screen instructions to let one of our referees remotely witness your weigh-in. This takes about two minutes of your time.
Print the “Verify Me!” form and have a qualified witness sign the form after watching you step on the scale — any doctor, nurse, health club staff member or WW employee is qualified to be a witness. Then take a photo of the signed form and upload it to your HealthyWage account.
An individual participant’s actual weight is NOT shared with any other participants at any point during the challenge. Only weight loss percentage is visible to other users.
Encourage participants to sign up — that’s it! After you build your challenge, get the word out by sending the sign up link via email or Facebook. HealthyWage also provides a suite of marketing materials including: weekly email blasts, marketing posters and sample Facebook posts. Once the challenge starts HealthyWage handles all the communication to participants.
Participants get 12 weeks of support from HealthyWage! They will receive weekly emails, get access to our mobile apps on iOS or Android and access to a community of like-minded individuals.
If you would like to join in the challenge, you can absolutely register as a participant! The creator of the challenge can join the challenge for free. There is no money added to the prize pot, but you can win and experience the challenge just like a paying participant. Lucky you!
