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.




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.




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!




I really like the “Random Chance Survival” walking event! It promotes consistency; getting out every day and adding some miles. You can't just pile up a bunch of miles one day and then goof off (something I'm exceptionally good at ) since you don't know what days will be excluded. It's helped me go just a bit farther on my "lazy days" than I otherwise would have.

Thanks for a well-thought-out event!




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!




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.
