About the Author
Nina Barough has always been intrigued by the relationship and balance between the mind and body, and finds power walking a wonderful way of achieving this, while maintaining her passion for good health and fitness. She has been a vegetarian from a young age and has studied both massage and Reiki. For many years, she ran her own successful production company. In 1996 her life changed when she had the idea of power walking the New York City marathon wearing a customized bra in order to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. The idea became a reality, and the charity Walk the Walk was born. Only months later, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and her holistic knowledge and attitude toward health care played a vital part in her approach toward the treatment and recovery process. Walk the Walk Worldwide follows her philosophy of life by encouraging people to take more responsibility for their well-being and to recognize their own potential for good health. Barough was awarded a CBE in recognition of her charitable work.
