Testimonials

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!!!




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 think this is so clever how you have this website set up. It is a great idea, helps to keep me moving.





I want to thank you for the use of your web site to help me lose the weight I was trying to lose. Now that I have met my goal I will be dropping out of your program. Thanks again. I encourage others to use the site as well. Keep up the good work. Yours is the best site of its kind 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.




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!




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.



Thanks for the kind words when I met my 2000 mile goal. You asked me if it was all running. It's actually mostly walking. Up until a couple of years ago I ran all the time, but I now have arthritis in my left hip and was advised by my doctor to do more non-weight bearing exercises like biking and swimming, and less running.

Thanks for developing this web site. It's very motivating and a great way to keep track of everything. My son introduced my husband, and I to it last year, and we both have really enjoyed it.

Thanks again for the web site.




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!




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.
