Whether you are on a mission to cut down on excess weight, a fitness enthusiast, or you are developing an interest in fitness, then you must have heard about fitness apps that help you exercise and track your calorie.

What you might not have heard of are fitness apps that not only help you exercise but also give you incentives when you use them to keep fit.

If you need motivation to exercise then there is no better option than using apps that pay you to workout.  It is a win-win situation. 

These apps are available for download on mobile devices and all you need is a smartphone, internet connection, and access to an app store.

There are a number of these applications out there but we have chosen to introduce you to the best 4.

All 4 apps are free and available on Android and iOS so you can choose whichever one you prefer after going through the details.

Skill Share 

This app helps you lose weight and earn money in a simple process. 

To earn money you are expected to make a video while working out and upload them to serve as tutorials for others. When people watch them you get paid.

Basically, you are building a video/tutorial album for others to watch and learn ways to do invigorating home workouts or exercise and you are paid for doing that. 

You can choose to do simple or complex videos for others to watch. Whatever you choose to do, you get paid when people watch it.

Healthy Wage

This fitness app motivates you through staking your funds and setting a weight loss goal for yourself. If you can achieve the level of weight loss you set then you win your money back.

To use Healthy Wage you need to open an account and input your current body measurement. Then set the most healthy body weight for you and the time frame. If you achieve it, you get your money back.

If you are unable to achieve the expected weight loss goal at the time you set it up to be achieved then you would lose your funds.

You can also take part in challenges as an individual or make bets as a team. You put in your funds, set the challenge details, and then achieve them to get paid.

If you win and earn the money back it will be paid to you through Amazon credit or PayPal. 

Diet Bet

This app is quite similar to the Healthy Wage app but bets are done a bit differently on this one. 

This allows you and your friend bet on your weights and whoever first loses weight split the money between everyone who bet. 

To use this app, you can either choose to join any game that is already available on the app or start a new game with your friends.

Similarly to other apps you and your friends would have to provide details of your current weight and then set the timer (usually 28 days).

At the end of the game, you earn money and of course, you must have lost weight. 

Step Bet

This app is similar to diet bet and Healthy wage but it goes a step further with its profit package. 

With this app, you also bet on yourself to achieve your weight loss but you don’t only get the funds you put in at the end of the game; you also get profits on your funds.

The amount of profit you make is specific to the game you play. Whatever you earn at the end of every game (mostly 6 weeks) will be paid to your account via PayPal.
