Introducing GreatistYou!

Forget weight-loss reality-TV melodrama. GreatistYou is a brand new social media experiment. We’re showing what it’s really like to set a goal, put in the work, and get healthy habits to actually stick.

We scoured the country—and watched hours of inspiring video submissions—in search of amazing Greatists ready to take the next big step in their health journey. Over the next six weeks, we'll follow our five contestants as they chronicle their efforts to crush their health goals. And when it’s all over, we're giving $1,000 to every contestant who succeeds.

Get to know them—and our super-motivating mentor, Jessi Kneeland—by clicking the photos below. Be sure to follow everyone on Instagram and Snapchat, and check back here daily to catch up on how they’re doing.
