Fitness & Nutrition By: Eileen Arango
When massapequaNEWS.com first approached me about writing "Fitness and Nutrition," I must say I was a little taken aback, but honored. Fitness and nutrition (simply put), are a part of my life. I never thought that I was doing anything out of the ordinary or needing of recognition. Just like anyone else; I adore my husband and cherish my children. Writing Fitness and Nutrition on massapequaNEWS.com now gives me the ability to share the multifaceted life I lead in a way that should inspire and empower women just like me. Stay strong, stay positive and enjoy! -Eileen
I was born in Miami, FL. I moved here, to Massapequa, at 3 months old, where I have lived ever since. (Give or take a year or two when I lived temporarily in a couple of other places, but that doesnít count since that was during a more unstable "trying to find myself" time in my life) and because I wound up migrating back to my favorite place, Massapequa, anyway.
What makes me qualified to talk about Fitness & Nutrition?
Well hereĎs my story, as condensed as possible. I graduated High School (and NO Iím not telling the year, just kidding, it was 1985 and Iíll save you the math, Iím 42) and went to college for Accounting, not because I always grew up wanting to do other peoplesí taxes, but I wasnít sure what to focus on in college, so I picked Math because it always came easy for me (History on the other hand did not). While attending college, I took evening classes, so I could work full time to support the very necessary and gorgeous car I insisted on driving. After my 2 year Associates degree, I decided to work for an attorneysí firm as a Jr. Accountant to get some experience and I continued towards my Bachelors at night. I have been leaving out the most important part of the answer to the original question though, the one about being qualified to talk about Fitness & Nutrition. I started training in Martial Arts in 11th grade where I met my future husband, Anthony (who, by the way, I think is totally amazing). We wound up getting married some years later and we have 3 children, Toni, she is 17, Darien, she is 12, and Antonio, he is now 5.
Since the 80ís, I have been studying Martial Arts, give or take some years in there that I took a temporary break, I spent about 10 years in total bodybuilding, or let's call it body sculpting, I think that sounds more like what I did anyway. I started studying yoga after Darien was born, about 11 years ago, and in between have done everything from cycle classes, step aerobics, if it burned calories and kept me active, I did it. Now, my Martial Arts and yoga take up most of my time, along with my family, and I find passing this information on to others extremely fulfilling. I teach a Womenís only class at karate, focusing on womenís needs, yoga, core strength & conditioning and any other karate class needing my assistance. Teaching is something I enjoy immensely and watching my husband teach always brings me great joy. Now, Toni, my oldest daughter, teaches in the childrenís classes and she is so great at it already. Our school is so family-oriented and teaching families to live a happier and healthier lifestyle is such a pleasure. To do it as a family, just amazing. I love my life!
So, there you have it. These are my qualifications, over 20 years of experience, and still learning more, very eager to pass on to whoever would like to benefit. Not very condensed, I know, but come on; itís over 20 years worth. Stay strong and stay positive! -Eileen
