Testimonials

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 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.




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!!!




I read about a program called "Exercise Across America" offered through another program. I checked on their website, but it looked to bureaucratic for me. I wanted something simple. Their program uses a logbook and you pick a state to walk across. A small state would be for beginners and a large state for an advanced walker. I then started browsing and found your website. Much more simpler and easier to use.  I like the way you have set up your "Walk Across America" program.




I watched the TV clip and it was terrific. You guys are off and running! I think that the TV station did a good job of writing the story, or editing the story that you told.




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 want to thank you for the use of your web site to help me lose the weight I was trying to lose. I encourage others to use the site as well. Keep up the good work. Yours is the best site of its kiind I have found anywhere!




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 like this March Madness walking challenge.  I just saw it today.  The weather here has been bad, plus I have had to work late.  I walked today and was logging my miles when I saw the competition.  It was a pleasant surprise.  This website has been an inspiration to keep me walking.  I am telling my friends about it also. To everyone who has reached their first 100 mile goal congratulations. I hope to be there soon.




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!
