Testimonials


My daughter and I are enjoying the little competitions between the two of us, using your site as a way to measure our progress. Thanks for giving us this opportunity to have fun with our walking!!!! Keep it going! I am getting my mother ready to sign up, too. Three generations!! Too cool!




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.




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!





The new web site is amazing! I really like it. It is first class.

I really enjoy the virtual walk across the states. It really keeps me motivated! It is fun to see others progress also. And it is nice to get the emails from others when I reach my goals!




Ellie has been a great motivator for me. I read about her in our newspaper the first year of Healthwalkers and decided that I, too, could walk. She has motivated me by staying on top of the list and also by personally encouraging me by e-mail.

I have been going to Weight Watchers 2 years tomorrow. By walking, riding a bike, exercising and physical therapy I have needed to do I have become more athletic - at 56 years of age! Of course, diet also plays an important role. I have learned how to eat healthy and try to walk every day.

The total amount of weight I have lost because of all these factors is about 72 pounds as of yesterday. I still have at least 24 more pounds to go, but I KNOW I can reach my goal.

Healthwalkers has kept me accountable for recording activities and trying to maintain a status on the front page, even though I've had some surgeries and some medical problems during this time period. I also challenged one HW member to a goal to be higher on the first page by Dec. 10, 2005. I did win the challenge, but I actually think we both won because we are both more active because of this. By challenging her I have also gained a long-distance e-mailing friend.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you, Healthwalkers!




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 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.




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 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? 




Oh Thank you! Thank you!

I enjoy the walking challenges that you have set up. I wanted to let you know last month's "March Madness" challenge helped me a lot.  The point system and with communicating with my team members worked for me.

Thanks for all the effort you put into these.
