'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Alex Slezak is known as a tennis coach and physical education instructor in the Fox Chapel Area school district.

Now, he will also spread the gospel of fitness to adults.

He launched an online fitness program on Sept. 24.

“As a coach and phys ed teacher, I train kids to improve their fitness, coordination, speed and agility all year long,” Slezak said.

“Parents have asked me for years to start training adults but I have never had time because I am so busy working with youth at the high school.

“For the past eight months, I have been working to create a world-class, 100 percent online digital training program for adults.”

The program has two parts — one is an education component and the other is the ‘how to' component.

Slezak believes he has left no stone unturned in the program.

“I cover training principles, nutrition, soft tissue work, mobility, stretching, postural problems and provide individualized monthly workouts,” he said.

Slezak will also offer a free on-line mini-course with explanations of “Why cardio is dead” and “Manipulating metabolism through exercise.”

Anyone can access the course online by entering a valid email. At the end of the course, they will have the opportunity to join the online training program.

The cost of this program is $30 for the first month and $10 each month for continued access. Log onto www.alexslezakcompletefitness.com.
