Dieters Funding Fab Vacations by Losing Lbs.

Published

on

With spring break and summer travel planning looming, many are starting to sweat the imminent budget bump needed to make their hopeful getaway a reality. Helping alleviate the stress, financial assistance is available from an unexpected source.  Those would-be wanderers who’d benefit from shedding some extra pounds can parlay their weight-loss into monetary winnings to readily fund a fab vacation. This as HealthyWage—the pioneer and industry-leader in fiscal prize and incentive-induced weight loss—has spent over $20 million dollars to date rewarding dieters with cold hard cash for their weight-loss success.

Need proof? Here are a few notable examples of travel-focused folks—a woman and a man—who dieted-for-dollars with HealthyWage and spurred their ability to get out of Dodge for doing so.

The first is Ashley Hayward from New Castle, Delaware. She won a whopping $2,591.14 for losing 65 pounds in just 8 months – her before and after photo can be viewed here. “I used my HealthyWager winnings to take a 2-week trip to Kauaii!,” Ashley said. After browsing the Internet for fitness and weight tips, Ashley came across HealthyWage. “I got really excited because it seemed like something that would help motivate me really well [to lose weight] because I’m not one who wants to put out money and then not get it back. So, it was a good way to help motivate myself other than just seeing the progress or the numbers on the scale. It was nice to actually be like ‘if I don’t [meet my goal] then I’m basically spending money for nothing,’ which helped pushed me get to my specific weight loss goal within a specific time.”

Another big winner is Brian Young from Maple Valley, Washington. who earned $1,974.95 for losing 120 pounds in 12 months – his before and after photo can be viewed here. “Next month my wife and I are taking a trip to Italy for our 20-year anniversary and I will be using my HealthyWager winnings for the trip,” Brian notes. “After having 3 siblings pass away within 7 years, I found myself weighing the most I ever had at over 346 pounds. I decided it was time to get the healthy to make sure I will be around for my family for a long time. I signed up for HealthyWage to help keep me motivated since my sedentary desk job can make losing weight difficult. I tracked my calories and committed to exercising at least five times a week. It wasn’t easy, but I worked hard and stayed committed for the entire year and lost over 120 pounds in the process. I am much healthier and happier.”

Answering the foundational question as to why these people have realized such success, HealthyWage co-founder David Roddenberry explains, “HealthyWage is founded on research and ‘double-incentivization’ methodology that proves cash rewards triple the effectiveness of weight loss programs. Studies show that monetary incentives serve to enhance the effectiveness of, and duly complement, weight-loss programs of any and all sorts, especially when paid out quickly like our various programs.”

One of the company’s programs is called “HealthyWager,” which allows participants to make a wager upfront ranging anywhere from $20 a month to as much as $500. Participants then commit to a specific amount of weight loss in a specific timeframe, for which they’ll receive a cash prize payout if they achieve their goal in the allotted time. “The average participant roughly triples their investment if they are successful at achieving their goal. The financial upside potential is impressive,” Roddenberry notes.

Various study findings ostensibly substantiate HealthyWage’s approach. One study published in the journal Social Science and Medicine further proved that money is an effective motivator to “increase both the magnitude and duration of weight loss.” The same holds true in business for staff wellness initiatives. Results from one study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine indicated that “’Loss Incentive’ Motivates Employees to Take More Steps, ” finding that financial incentives framed as a loss were most effective for achieving physical activity goals.

“These studies, and throngs of others, reiterate the importance of the ‘stick’ in the design of a wellness incentive program, whether for individuals at home or for employee groups,” notes Roddenberry. “Many studies have demonstrated that the threat of losing something of value is much more effective than the opportunity to win something of equal value. That’s precisely why we advocate that program participants ‘pay to play’ and make an investment out of their own pocket in order to win rewards—in our case large cash prizes—for losing weight and getting more active in the program.”

Speaking of staff wellness, HealthyWage is also a prolific corporate and group wellness purveyor. Roddenberry says that, since 2009, the company has worked with an array of hi-caliber participants on workplace and staff wellness initiatives, including Old Dominion Freight, ConocoPhillips, and more than 25 percent of the largest school districts in the country. HealthyWage also reports that it has, in fact, formally created competitive, cash-fueled programs for more than 700 Fortune 500 and other public and private companies, hospitals, health systems, insurers, school systems, municipal governments and other organizations throughout the U.S., and their program has been more informally run at more than 3,000 companies and organizations seeking to bolster staff health and well-being, and boost bottom lines in kind.

So whether you’re motivated to lose weight and gain cash in order to pay for a travel endeavor or just generally profit from your pound-shedding plight, HealthyWage is one way you can get paid for successful weight-loss…and even have some competition-fueled fun in the process.

One may think that successful machinery transport is just as easy as shipping other items. Though moving them from one place to another indeed follows the same shipping principles applied globally, there are still some exceptions, especially for some heavy machinery. With that being said, any organization needs to be aware of the important practices that encompass machinery shipping. Machinery Transport 101: How to Transport Machinery and Their Parts Successfully shipping any type of machinery and its parts require individuals to determine the proper mode, carrier, and packaging needed to transport such materiel. The following practices always take precedence when transporting such assets: • Apperceiving the machinery for transport. An initial assessment of the machinery to be transported must be completed before the transport itself takes place. The clients must take note of any features that could affect freight capacities like weight and dimensions. The key here is to understand the type of machinery that needs to be shipped. Researching how other clients and carriers have moved them in the past can ensure a shipment’s success. • Packing the materiel accordingly. Transporting heavy machinery cannot be compared with regular freight movement where small items are packed in boxes filled with protective material such as bubble wrap. It often brings with it more machinery shipping packaging regulations compared to regular transport. Planning and proper handling of heavy machinery are indeed needed. There is a delicate balance to maintain between a client’s shipping needs and the carrier’s packaging requirements. Some carriers have strict regulations, requiring every machinery fit for transport to be stored in container vans, which adds rental costs to the client’s expenses. Aside from that, knowing the kind of work needed to load the equipment is necessary as well. For instance, loading docks and cranes might be needed to get heavy equipment on the back of a trailer truck. • Determining the Suitable Mode. Knowing the difference between FTL and LTL is important for determining the appropriate mode to use. FTL (full-truckload) service means that an entire truck is necessary to fully transport the cargo, while LTL (less-than-truckload) means that the shipment can be moved using a relatively smaller vessel. With that said, clients must consider their preferred mode for transporting their machinery. • Selecting the “Right” Carrier. Now, this one is a combination of what the sender currently knows about shipping machinery and the most relevant carrier available to them. Depending on the type of machinery a client or a company wants to ship, finding the right freight movement company could prove to be difficult. Regardless, the aim is to find a carrier that’s specialized and known for reliable machinery transport and especially the particular machinery they need transported. For instance, shipping heavy machinery would be handled better by international carriers who specialize in the movement of heavy machinery like bulldozers, backhoe loaders, heavy hydraulics, etc. The efficiency and rate of shipping success increase exponentially with these specialized carriers, not to mention they also reduce the risk of unanticipated costs and damages. Knowing the Different Shipping Modes Since we’ve previously talked a bit about the shipping modes, let’s go through all of them and compare what each can provide clients. It’s vital to know about the various shipping modes because they’re all dependent on timing, cost, and size of the shipment. Taking the time to read through each mode would help you decide which one is the most suitable in your case. • Full Truckload (FTL) – This mode necessitates the use of a whole trailer, with the shipment’s overall weight reaching over 6,804 kilograms (15,000 pounds). • Less than Truckload (LTL) – This mode is used when the shipment weighs between 68 (150 pounds) and 6,804 kilograms but doesn’t need a full trailer. • Partial Truckload (PTL) – This mode is used when the shipment’s weight is over 2,268 kilograms (5,000 pounds). However, you may need to split the expenses of a truck with other clients. • Intermodal – This mode is used when there’s a need (or preference) for combining various transportation modes such as rails, trucks, or ships. One could say that this works best for reliable machinery transport overseas, in vast territories such as Australia. • Expedited – This mode is used when time is of the essence for shipping heavy machinery. Keep in the mind that additional costs may arise from selecting this mode. • Flatbed – This mode is used when the shipment must be loaded from the side or needs dimensional flexibility. Evaluate the Machinery’s Extent of Liability In every shipment that carriers make and every mode of transport, there is a limited liability coverage set for moving all kinds of freight. Both the client and the freight service must come to an agreement to evaluate this extent. The liability coverage is determined by the carrier and is reliant on the type of commodity to be moved. For example, LTL covers a fixed amount of payment per kilogram of shipped freight. Keep in mind that understanding a carrier’s liability for loss of cargo and the limits of their liability coverage offers are good practice. It helps you get a better picture of how they run things and if they’re the right carrier for you. Now that you have an idea how machinery transport and how important practices in general freight shipment work, you can now select the right international transport service for you, to effectively increase your chances of your machinery being shipped successfully. Remember, successful freight movement isn’t just up to the carrier; clients have a very important role to play too.
