Testimonials

I love the site.  It was an excellent idea.  I would never have walked on this cold day if it were not for the challenges.  I do have a question, in the summer I love to spend a lot of time in the peddle boat, can I count this under any of the categories? 




I am so excited about joining Health Walkers. I've been a fitness walker since last fall. I try to walk at least an hour a day. I also do aerobics and/or weight training 5 days a week. I can feel my competative side coming out when I look at the miles logged in by other members. I'm ready to help my team when the next team event starts. 

Thanks for the support and keep up the good work.




I found this site by googling "Walk Across America" hoping somebody had set up a way of translating daily walking miles into a cross-country virtual walk.  Health Walkers is even better than what I'd hoped for, very complete but not too complicated.  It's really kept me motivated. I'm more than half-way across Illinois (yeah, I started in my home state, not on the East Coast) then it's on to Iowa and points west!




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 never thought I could stick with a walking program for this long. Health Walkers has helped a lot. I love the friendly challenges.




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.




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 have been saying to people, because of knee surgery in October and the fact I have to snowshoe instead of walk (and snowshoeing is a LOT slower that walking!), I set a new record for most days needed to reach the 100 mile goal!! But I did it, at least in part because of the website. Yes, it has helped. Writing to congratulate others who reached their goals helped me realize that I could do it too, kept me motivated.

I use the site to keep track of walking, strength training, and biking. I enjoy seeing how the other members are doing, how far they are walking and that they meet the goals. I like that the site keeps track of lots of different activities. The special events are fun to watch, too. I wish your message board was more active, but I guess people are all out walking!! The sense of community is nice, since I live in the middle of the woods in Maine and don't have a community handy! I am grateful the site is there. Oh, I also like the walking across the states aspect of the site. Another site I used to go to did a similar thing, but the miles walked did not match up to the miles they gave me (they gave way more than I walked, so it wasn't a true picture of how far I walked). I like how you do it.

I thank you for the work you do to run the site. It is making a difference in the amount I snowshoe/walk, thus it is making a difference in my life.




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.
