Testimonials


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!





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 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.




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.



I read the article that Dean Woodbeck wrote for MTU Tech Topics almost a year ago and I saved it. It took a whole year to actually DO something about it, though!

One thing I would enjoy seeing is a count of the number of days of recorded activity in the month. I've been a sporadic exerciser for many years, and my goal this year is to turn this into a HABIT. Being the analyst that I am, seeing numbers and trends is a big motivator for me, so I am really enjoying your site.




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!




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!




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.




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!!!
