The New Year is here!  Have you decided on a resolution for 2013?  If saving money and getting in better shape or losing weight is your goal here’s a little extra incentive!  There’s a growing diet trend that could help you succeed with both of your goals.  You can actually make money for working out or going to the gym.  Here are a few options to check out:

  • Pick your challenge
  • Bet $100 and lose 10-percent of your body weight to pocket $200
  • Bet $300 and get your BMI under 25 in a year for a chance to win $1,000
  • Compete as a team or individual

  • Head to Head competition
  • Sign up or start your own game
  • The more people who join, the more money at stake
  • Person who drops the most in 28 days takes home the pot

Gympact App

  • Download the App
  • Put your money on the line and set a number of days to hit the gym
  • If you miss your goal you pay
  • If you reach your goal you earn

Keep in mind these programs aren’t for everyone.  You do have to put up your own cash to enroll and you only have a certain amount of time to reach your goal.  Some of these programs get money from advertisers.  But they’re betting that you’ll fail.  Don’t sign up unless you’re motivated.  As a precaution, check with a doctor before you start any exercise program.
