If someone said you could earn rewards or get paid to work out, would you believe them? As hard as it may be to believe, you can. With these innovative work out apps and websites, exercising in 2017 will be a breeze as you get paid to do one thing – move.

Bounts

Get Paid to Work Out

Bounts makes it extremely easy to earn rewards while working out. After joining Bounts, your activities (walking, running, going to the gym, etc.) are synced to Bounts through mobile exercising apps and accumulated as points. The objective from here is obvious. The more points you gain, the more offers you can receive as you redeem your points. The objective with Bounts is to allow you to utilize your exercise applications or mobile pedometer and earn prizes in addition to getting in shape – which is the greater prize, of course. To get started, go to Bounts, and sign up with your email address. Bounts is also compatible with Android and iOS, so you can sign up by downloading the Bounts app if you wish.

Achievemint

Get Paid to Work Out

Achievemint operates under the same sort of concept as Bounts, earning rewards while exercising through synced apps. However, Achievemint allows you to earn rewards for exercising with more variety. For starters, the synced apps included in Achievemint not only include the typical exercising applications, but also more prominent apps, like Twitter and Foursquare. Also, Achievemint awards points as you engage in a wider umbrella of healthy activities. Included in the list of healthy activities in addition to exercise on Achievemint’s website is: sleeping, tweeting healthy tweets, participating in research, and taking a survey. Achievemint opens the window a bit wider when it comes to earning rewards for exercising. It incorporates a message of earning points for living and promoting a healthy lifestyle. The points earned through Achievemint can be redeemed for cash as well. The amount of cash may not be enough to pay for a house or an apartment, so don’t depend on Achievemint to pay the bills. But, either way, a quick and easy buck is the language for many people. If the quick buck comes with a slimmer waistline, it’s icing on the cake. To earn rewards while exercising, sign up on Achievemint. Achievemint is also available on iOS and is working on an Android app at the moment.

HealthyWage

Get Paid to Work Out

HealthyWage definitely allows you to make money while working out, but there is a catch. You make a bet that you can lose a certain amount of weight within a specified amount of time. If you do, you win money. If you don’t, well, you get the point. HealthyWage has been recognized on national TV shows, such as Today, for people losing large amounts of weight and getting paid thousands in return. It all starts with the wager. On HealthyWage’s website (the front page), you “make a personal challenge”. Once you enter in how much weight you want to lose, the amount of time you want to lose it in, how much you are betting each month, your sex, height and weight, you are told the range of how much you could earn if you lose the specified number of pounds. HealthyWage keeps track of how much weight you are losing through weigh-ins, allowing HealthyWage to ensure you are actually losing the weight. This is a great way to get paid to work out! Research has shown that out of all the benefits, including the main one of being healthier, money is a reward that helps people stick with eating and exercise plans longer. I mean, if I bet someone $500 that I could lose 25 pounds in four months, best believe I would be receiving something worth $500! HealthyWage has a minimum age of 18 for private use. Minors must have written permission from guardians and a physician. To get paid to work out, create an account on HealthyWage.

Pact

Get Paid to Work Out

Pact has the same sort of risky chance taking characteristic as HealthyWage. If you don’t live up to your part of the bargain, you end up missing out. In Pact, you make a pact to commit to eat more fruits and vegetables throughout each week in the veggie pact; exercise more doing any activity in a gym pact; or keep track of what you eat with MyFitnessPal with the food log pact. The number of rewards you earn in Pact depends on the amount of time you spend in each pact. The payment amount ranges from 30 cents to $5 per week, according to the Pact website. Pact promotes flexibility with their program and encourages users to take occasional breaks from their pacts. Pact is relatively the easiest way to earn rewards for exercising. It not only allows you to earn money for exercising. It gives you three avenues to explore in the quest of a healthier lifestyle. Pact is available on iOS and Android and has a minimum age of 18 for service. To earn rewards while exercising, download the Pact app or sign up online at Pact.

Note: As of June 26, 2017, Pact is no longer available.

In this new year, combine your want for a better, healthier body with the ability to get paid to work out. Utilize these apps and websites to live a healthier lifestyle while earning an extra piece of cash.
