StepBet is fitness motivation when you need it. See how betting on yourself will motivate you to get up and move more every day. Get non-stop motivation from personal Step Goals, an interactive dashboard that tracks your progress, new games every week and support from the StepBet community.
Walk, climb stairs, or dance to reach your weekly Step Goals. Created by WayBetter, StepBet is one example of how we’re reinventing motivation. At WayBetter, we’re working on making games to help you build healthier habits the fun way.
REAL MONEY, REAL MOTIVATION
Pledge your commitment to your Step Goals with a bet. Your money is pooled with other players who have joined the game and everyone who completes the challenge splits the pot. You don’t have to move more or longer than the other players to win — just hit your goals, and cash out!
PERSONALIZED STEP GOALS
StepBet uses a signature algorithm to provide each player with custom, daily step goals. Each week, you must complete your Step Goals through a specified number of Active and Power days. You get one Free day to use on a rainy day.
EASILY CONNECT TO YOUR DEVICES
StepBet automatically can count steps from Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Watch, and Apple Health steps on iPhones.
Getting active is more fun with other people, especially with other people who share the same goals. Use the game feed to share your own journey and get inspired by the amazing progress other players are making in their own lives.
We believe there’s no substitute for real, human support, and that’s why we developed our simple yet unique approach to customer support: WayBetter Referees. They are former players of our games and help our game experience stand out because you’ll get help from people you can relate to.

Ratings and Reviews
Great motivation, but...
Stepbet is a great motivation to get moving. When I really get into a funk with my workout routine, the possibility of losing $40 gets me off the couch more than anything. However, I’ve had Stepbet for a little over a year and my step goals have gotten out of control. I live in NYC, so naturally I’m walking a lot without trying. I understand that the goals are calculated based on your step history, but it seems unfair that other people in the game will have a stretch goal of 9,000, while my stretch goal is 19,000, and we’re playing for the same reward. It takes me twice the amount of time to get those steps, and really hinders my opportunity to add strength training or more varied workouts into my routine.
So while I think Stepbet is great, I’m going to have to stop using it until the system is changed. It would be great if there were set goals, such as everyone having to get 10k steps a day, or 15k steps a day like Spryfit. It would be more sustainable in the long term, because I know I’m not the only one struggling with their ever-increasing step goals. There are only so many hours in a day.
Fun concept but read the fine print
I like the app; it delivers exactly what it promises. But there were two things I wish I had paid attention to before diving in: 1) they take 15% of the pot right off the top, so 15% of the people in your game have to fail before you even make 1 cent. So in terms of actual money earned you’re looking at..not much at all. 2) if you do make any money, they don’t just put it back on your credit card. You have to have pal pal and if you don’t you have to request they mail you a check- for which there’s a fee that’s close if not more than what you made in the game!
So this really isn’t for people who respond to positive motivation (“if I workout I’ll make money!) but in actuality, it’s for people who respond to pain avoidance (“if I workout I won’t lose my 40$). It is effective if you’re in the latter category but not much if you’re in the former one.
Brilliant motivational concept!! Really works!
Ok. I don’t write reviews. However, I am compelled to write one for this phenomenal app. This app has transformed me from sitting at a desk / travel 70 hours a week working to looking for every way possible to get my steps in every day! I LOVE it! I feel amazing and I’m losing weight. What more can I ask for?! It is incredibly motivating to bet against yourself. Jillian Michaels also has a great app that has a diet bet challenge that can be used with this app. Try it! What have you got to lose? Nothing but increased health and happiness! This really works! I love the motivational reminder nudges too. And when you reach your goal you feel rewarded. The community is extremely supportive and I find ideas for success every day reading fellow steppers posts. Did I say I love this? Lol
