A note from the author

Thank you for taking the time to look at my book. This is a book about discovering how to power walk and the astounding number of benefits that come with it. It is not only learning how our bodies work, but also realising that our attitudes and beliefs, what we eat and drink and even how we breathe all create who we are. You will find out how small and simple changes can ultimately have a huge impact on your health, fitness, and quality of life. I hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think! Nina
