Fred Jaroudi is a resident of Plum Borough and an owner of a local gym called Community Health Center in the town of Penn Hills for the past sixteen years. Community Health Center is a gym that is equipped with everything from cardio machines to passive machines. Passive machines are a big hit at the gym, because they offer a great workout for people who have limited mobility or who cannot use the other equipment. Also passive machines are state of the art technology, which many gyms do not offer.
Another great aspect of The Community Health Center is that they have an agreement with the local insurance of hospitals such as UMPC.
Jaroudi says, “We accept almost all insurances but never turn away anyone even if they are not covered”.
Along with being a gym, it is also an U-Haul location, which allows residents a convenient renting area.
As well as being a gym owner Fred Jaroudi is also a marathon runner who as placed in the top of his age ranks almost every race. Such as the 21st running of the Monroeville Classic 10K where Jaroudi placed first within his age group.
Jaroudi is a true entrepreneur because he is also involved with the company TekVal Int'l Inc. TekVal Int'l Inc is a company that sells and invents new renewable energy sources. Such as solar panels that Jaroudi has heating the Community Health Center. TekVal Int'l Inc has several different renewable energy sources for sale such as solar water heater, solar air conditioning, wind turbines, and solar panels-garden-street lights.
Jaroudi states, “One of these wind turbines can power over 500,000 homes and this means that America will not need to rely on oil and gas from other countries”.
TekVal Int'l Inc is working with the University of Pittsburgh and their undergrad engineering students to create and learn about these renewable resources.
The goal of TekVal Int'l Inc in Pittsburgh Jaroudi states “Regenerate Pittsburgh image from the old steel mill into new technology which will better the city.”
