Alden Mills, creator of the Perfect Pushup, is CEO of Perfect Fitness, based in CA. Massachusetts born, Alden went to the Naval Academy where he went on to become a Navy SEAL. After retiring in 2000, he earned his MBA at Carnegie Mellon. As a SEAL Team TWO Platoon Commander, his platoon was chosen for a study to determine why SEALs suffered unusually high injury rates during their careers. After learning injuries were linked to their training methods (age-old body building drills), SEAL trainers switched to Functional Training. Alden learned firsthand the value of optimal exercise routines. Bottom line: if people can take control of their body, they can be more successful in everything they do. Mills turned this belief into a top fitness brand and revolutionized American fitness. His ultimate mission is to inspire everyone to pursue their own dreams.

Anna Ursu started running 5 years ago and this helped her improve her health and lifestyle in unexpected ways. At the beginning running was just a curiosity. Now she is addicted to this sport and she can not see her life without it. Her workout routine includes running on treadmills most of the time, mainly because it is convenient. But in time, as she started testing treadmills for RunReviews.com, she discovered that treadmills come also with advantages..
Through her work she wants to help people discover the benefits of running, no matter what workout type they prefer. In the end, the purpose of a runner must be to run, and have fun. The rest of a runner's story will write itself.

On a fateful day in May of 1997, Mark Colburn, a Navy Seal with the elite Leap frog parachuting team, prepared to make the last jump of the day. Mark jumped from a plane at 12,000 feet in the sky above Brown's field in Otay Mesa, California. After free-falling to three thousand feet, Mark opened his chute. But the SEAL above him did not and continued free-falling at ninety miles an hour. The other jumper tore through Mark's chute, hitting him in the head and hand with his body. Mark's amazing recovery became his biggest challenge. Now he's ready to help you face your challenges.
