Perfect Fitness gave a Perfect Pushup Mobile to Nate, a naval aviator; his letter is below. Since we can't share his last name, picture or location, we're borrowing Hollywood's most famous Navy flyer. Perfect Fitness has donated products to every ship in the fleet, and it fires us all up to hear from our sailors -- so please fire off a message to AMM

"Thank you sincerely for the Perfect Pushup travel set that you gave to me. I use it every day and love it! Like everyone else, finding time to work out seems impossible sometimes, and the convenience of the PP set solves that issue to a great extent. I've had multiple friends who have seen it at my house and subsequently gone and purchased their own. Also, the travel set has been great for working out on the aircraft carrier (I'm in the Navy) because of it being so light and compact.

Additionally, as a pilot, I try to focus on core muscle groups to help with G-tolerance, and the PP has helped a lot. Again, I really appreciate your generosity and will encourage others to use your product any opportunity I get."

Thanks, Nate. And heads up: I'm rerunning my 30-day/lose-10-pound plan on Twitter @aldenmills; please follow me if you'd like to look ripped this New Year's Eve. Why wait for 2010 to get in shape?
