Testimonials

I usually try to swim laps 60 minutes a day in our pool, and find that the most exhausting of all the exercises I do, so I would think that would contribute most to my total fitness points. Last year, before the swimming category was created, I entered my swimming minutes in the aerobics category. I know that gave me points doing it that way. Your web site is a great motivator to get moving. I'm always challanging myself to keep my total “Fitness Points” as high as possible, and doing so has really improved my total fitness.

I thank you for your web site!!!




What a great "March Madness" special event. It was tough knowing that we had to work hard to compete Elle's team in the final round, but we pulled through. I sent my email address to my teammates (through Healthwalkers) which allowed us to email encouragement to each other. It really helped when we had to all pull our weight in the final round. In the future, it would be good when we sign up to indicate if our email address is sent to our teammates automatically. I am really glad this occurred.

Also, I have been wanting to have shirts, hats etc. available for purchase with the Healthwalkers logo on it. I submitted an email to a source of these types of items to see what is available and the costs. When I find out more information on them, I'll pass it along.

Go Healthwalkers. Thanks for a great contest and for all the encouragements that it created to walk more with diligence.




I think this is so clever how you have this website set up. It is a great idea, helps to keep me moving.




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 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!




What I like about the Health Walkers web site is that it makes me accountable. I especially like the challenges. It’s a great place to keep track of your activity. It’s so easy to just say “I walked 3 times last week”, well…..were they just walks around the block or were they walks around the city? No getting away from the facts of what you recorded. When I was training for a marathon a few years back this web site really helped me stay on track. Sure I sometimes have injuries & I’m side lined & no entries are recorded for a length of time but when I get back on the horse it’s nice to know the web site is there waiting for me.



I read the article that Dean Woodbeck wrote for MTU Tech Topics almost a year ago and I saved it. It took a whole year to actually DO something about it, though!

One thing I would enjoy seeing is a count of the number of days of recorded activity in the month. I've been a sporadic exerciser for many years, and my goal this year is to turn this into a HABIT. Being the analyst that I am, seeing numbers and trends is a big motivator for me, so I am really enjoying your site.




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!




More than two years ago, when I was 68 I subscribed to Health Walkers with the hope that I could achieve the challenge you presented in your "Walk Across America" program.  That goal has been reached by me and it can easily be reached by all who accept the challenge. At the age of 70,  I believe that SURVIVAL is waking in the morning and walking  toward a goal.




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.
