Inspiration, meet motivation.
Getting you over the starting line
We partner with the world’s leading health and wellness experts to guide you to eat better, exercise, do yoga, meditate, reduce stress, and much more. New challenges start every week in the WayBetter app.
Getting you over the finish line
WayBetter is surprisingly effective thanks to our live coaches, smart challenges, and positive community. Plus there’s a kicker: you can bet on yourself and win money! You choose the goal … we'll get you there.

The WayBetter Way™

We’ve developed a novel approach that combines games, social reinforcement, and financial incentives. With our science partners from Brown Medical School, we were just awarded a $1M NIH research grant.

How it Works

Amp up your motivation by betting on yourself in our challenges. Everyone who finishes splits the pot.

History

In 2013, we reimagined weight loss as a game with DietBet. In 2015, we breathed new life into fitness trackers with our walking game, StepBet. In 2017, we applied our motivational formula to nudge people to run regularly with RunBet. In 2019, we were awarded a $1 million NIH research grant to help smokers quit. In 2020, we celebrated our 1,000,000th WayBetter player and $100M in cumulative payouts to our winners. Finally, we launched our flagship goal-sharing network inside the WayBetter app.

A WayBetter Company
Ever loved a company’s product so much that you wanted to work there? We know the feeling. Most of our employees actually started out as WayBetter players and applied for jobs posted inside our games. We understand our customers because we are customers.
