Testimonials

Thanks for the kind words when I met my 2000 mile goal. You asked me if it was all running. It's actually mostly walking. Up until a couple of years ago I ran all the time, but I now have arthritis in my left hip and was advised by my doctor to do more non-weight bearing exercises like biking and swimming, and less running.

Thanks for developing this web site. It's very motivating and a great way to keep track of everything. My son introduced my husband, and I to it last year, and we both have really enjoyed it.

Thanks again for the web site.




It's been a lot of help to get started with some type of program that doesn't involve running right away. I have had 3 stress fractures in about 13 months and can not do any running this year. This has been a help to watch the miles accumulate on this site as I am developing a base for marathon training (for a fall marathon-walking). I only log miles that I have walked as part of an exercise period. I walk about 2-3 miles at work but do not count this. I like the option of setting the goals of walking across each state. It makes it a bit more of a challenge and fun.

Thanks for the great site and keep up the good work.




This website has been a big encouragement to me.  I am diabetic and need all the encouragement to get on the treadmill even when I don't really feel like it.  With the "Survival" special events, I have been increasing my miles and it has been a great health benefit too!. Today I walked 8 miles and feel GREAT!




When you walk around the mall, you'll get more than you bargained for: A leg up on fitness. Mall walking is a perfect way to make exercise feel less like a chore and more a part of daily life. Shopping centers are heated in winter, air-conditioned in summer, safe, well lit, and free of snapping dogs and pollen. Not only will you burn calories and tone your legs, if you maintain good posture when you walk, you'll give your abs a workout. Keep yourself straight up while holding in your ab muscles; every step becomes a mini sit-up. Most of us lean forward when we walk, but we can catch ourselves easily at the mall: Just check your posture in your reflection in the windows.




Thankyou for all of the encouraging emails I received yesterday regarding my first milestone!  I am so excited to have made it in such a quick time! I am currently in training for the Avon Breast Cancer 3 Day and the Health Walkers site is a great source for motivation!  Every morning after I get back from my walks I go straight to the computer so I can log my miles!  Currently, I am walking an average of 3.5 to 4.5 miles a day.  Next weekend I will be participating in my first 10 mile walk!!!  I am a bit nervous about it but I feel confident that I can complete it.

Thank you again for all of the support and kind messages!




I just wanted to add my thanks to the many others who are benefiting from your web site. I have lost 13 lbs since joining up this past May and I know that consistent walking has been the difference. Your site is the easiest I have found to keep track of miles walked and it challenges me to make an entry every day. Unfortunately, I may have charged out a little too exuberantly. I have developed blister on both heels! So I will be backing off a little for the next couple of weeks, getting in what I can.  But thanks again for your wonderfully simple but extremely useful web site!




I just wanted to say thank you.  I was unsure of who ever created Health Walkers, but thank you for doing so.  I've just had my 1st baby in November and I was really bummed out about all the weight that I've gained.  So my mother and I decided to start walking together, but due to how different our schedules, we ended up walking at different times. Since then, I would be catching my self skipping days and getting further and further behind.  The other day my mother found Health Walkers on the web.  Your site has made it a lot easier since then.  I've only been a member for about a week now, but already I feel better when I log in.

Thank you once again.




I have been a mall walker for about 8 years (3-4 times a week). Last month after learning about Health Walkiners from a story on WFIE TV, I made a commitment to walk 100 miles within 30 days. I now have a goal and a reason to walk every day. I am now 68 and feel great.  This is another way to enjoy the Internet!




I walk so I won't have to sit  in a doctors office when I get old.  I have been a mall walker for more than ten years (2 or 3 times a week). Since I subscribed to Health Walkers in January, I have been given another  goal to reach after every achievement. I now walk at least 25 miles each week in order to reach my new goal of 1000 miles this year. I am one of the lucky ones who has never had a weight problem.  I'm 68 and feel great thanks to Health Walkers.




I recently finished my 2,500 miles. I started the "Health Walkers" walking program in January of 2002. This program has really motivated me to walk. In January of 2004 I had a spinal fusion. This stopped my walking for only two weeks. Then in August I had knee surgery which stopped my walking for another two weeks. This month I have aready walked 113 miles which is the most for a while. If it were not for Health Walkers, I'm sure I would have given up walking. This is really a great organization.

Thank you for Health Walkers.
