Testimonials

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 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? 




This site is a great motivator. I have walked before but gave it up because I couldn't seem to get anyone else interested. People think I'm crazy for walking in all kinds of weather but I enjoy it. The summertime heat will be the hardest for me but with Health Walkers, I'm sure I'll keep going.

Thank you so much.




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 just joined Health Walkers recently and wanted to tell you how much I really love this website! I can't believe how motivated I am.  The first thing I do when I get to work each day it logon then call up your site and put in my mileage.  I know I will be one of the ones to walk across the country and then some, due for the most part to your website.  I really like seeing results from other members as well, I use that to get out there to walk more. Its fun to see each day's totals and "receive credit" for just getting out there to do something I already enjoy.

 Thanks again for the great website.




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.




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!




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.




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!





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!
