Have you ever struggled to balance education, career, working out and spending time with loved ones? That’s one full plate. Having a life and making time to stay healthy can be a chore in itself. But the newest trend to get in shape, and stay in shape, is coming from an unexpected place – your job.  Because health care costs have continued to increase, there are new programs developed that offer monetary incentive to stay healthy.

One such company is working to battle both obesity and rising healthcare costs. IncentaHEALTH blends scientific expertise with the latest technology to find ways in which employees can get motivated to shed their extra weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, too. They pay cash for sustained weight loss to help keep you on the path to healthy living.

IncentaHEALTH is a web-based program that includes customized daily lifestyle coaching such as daily support emails including exercise instruction and daily meal plans. The program also features an automated, confidential kiosk at your worksite that measures weight, body mass index (BMI) and even blood pressure. In just 60 seconds, you can have all your metrics privately taken and recorded in the computer system. The kiosk even takes your photo once per quarter so that you can see how much progress you’ve made since the program’s beginning.

With about 66 percent of the population being overweight or obese, it’s about time that something’s being done on a larger scale, and programs' like incentaHEALTH's are a great start.  Ultimately, these incentivized healthcare plans seem to be a great option for employees and their families because previously unhealthy employees learn how to lead healthier, active lifestyles and employers get happier, more productive employees. In the end, everybody wins.
