The credit card offering will allow consumers to earn cash back based on what they spend and the level of their physical activity. Paceline incentivizes healthy lifestyles for its members through its line of reward offerings from health and wellness brands such as Sunbasket, Athleta and Echelon.

“Our existing users spend nearly half of their monthly total spend on health and wellness gym memberships, apparel, equipment, and groceries,” said Joel Lieginger, Paceline’s founder and CEO. “Through our own credit card, we can enhance this experience further by using credit card rewards to further increase physical activity, creating a virtuous cycle to change the nature of preventive health in society.”
