Buy a Bike; Send Your Boss the Receipt
Forbes reports that almost 60 percent of big companies use incentives to get their employees to stay in good health. Because they love you, of course!—and not only because it will keep down health care costs. GE has a whole Live Healthier program, which helps employees and their families stay active and includes a range of services—from smoking cessation to stress reduction. If you work for a larger company or startup, it's highly likely they will pay for your gym memberships, yoga retreats or even reimburse you for the purchase of exercise equipment.
