The big motivation for me was the incentive and the payout being right before the holidays helped. I knew I had to lose weight and quit smoking. I set a date to quit smoking of December 17th and haven’t had a cigarette since. I lost 50+ pounds too. I looked at it as my company is paying me to get healthy.

Program Participant

I appreciate the savings and the motivation to continue to stay under the max BMI to get the discount.

Program Participant

This is a great program that all employees should participate in. I believe you do a great job in communicating this to employees.

Program Participant

I really don't think it can get any better. Really to get paid for being healthy, nothing better than that for inspiration.
