Denville Personal Trainer Carey Yang Leads a Fitness Boot Camp to Build a Fit and Healthy Community


Denville Personal Trainer Carey Yang Leads a Fitness Boot Camp to Build a Fit and Healthy Community

Personal Trainer Carey Yang of Denville, New Jersey is featured in Daily Record’s Parsippany This Week. In the cover story, Yang shares why and how he leads the Morris County Fitness Boot Camp to help local residents lose weight and get fit toward a healthy lifestyle.

DENVILLE, NJ -- August 25, 2009 – Carey Yang, a certified personal trainer and fitness boot camp instructor based in Denville, New Jersey, is featured in the cover story of Daily Record’s Parsippany This Week. “I am honored to be featured in Daily Record. It tells a great story about how I help build a fit and healthy community through my fitness boot camp,” says Yang, known as “Your Dream Body WorkoutXpert.”

In this interview, Yang shares his passion about helping people achieve their health and fitness goals. Fitness boot camp is great format to reach more people and help more people in a fun, effective and affordable way.

Yang says I have been thinking for a while as to how to help the community and spread the message in leading a healthy, active and performance lifestyle. I found a strong need for a local support group in the area of healthy living, fitness and weight management. I quickly organized and started a Morris County Fitness and Weight Loss Meetup group. After the first group meeting, we decided to start weekly fitness boot camp class. Our group has grown steadily to 34 members.

The group meets once a week in an outdoor park. The members learn and share their experiences, challenges, solutions, and strategies followed by a group exercise session. The group training is a whole-body workout session using body-weight-based exercises, dumbbells, kettlebells, exercise bands and natural terrains in the park. “The group dynamic is empowering and synergistic,” Yang says. “The camaraderie is there motivating everyone to do more and keep it going – something you can’t achieve by yourself.”

Many people come to the boot camp class seeking motivation, support and alternative way of exercising. It delivers exactly they need. As one member put it, “Carey’s boot camp class is a far more enjoyable and effective experience than ‘packed like sardines’ aerobic classes or un-motivating solo-workout in the traditional gym environment.”

Another boot camp member says, “I’m not big on exercise. I never was. It’s a hard thing for me to do. Attending Carey’s boot camp helps me make the exercise enjoyable and gives me a little push.”

“We are a small group of people who are getting fit outdoors together and have fun at the same time.” says a happy boot camper. “I can feel every muscle is targeted. Carey is very encouraging and helpful. I'm looking forward to bringing more of my friends to the boot camp. Carey is Parsippany's best kept secret!”

The fitness boot camp is open to the public for a very affordable $10 per session and on a pay-as-you-go basis. It’s held in the Veterans Memorial Park on Rt. 46 East at Vail Road in Parsippany. Visit for more information about the group and boot camp class schedule.

Can Exercise Make You Thin?

There has been a disburtance in the fitness industry in the past few day regarding an article in Time Magazine titled "Why Exercise Won't You Thin?" See the online article link below.,8599,1914857,00.html

Many fitness and health related professionals have voiced their rebuttals. Honestly, ask yourself this. Can exercise make you thin?

Research studies are fine. But do we need them to tell us the known facts in spite of contradictory findings?

Back to the question. As I told my clients or anyone who wants to lose weight, you can't violate the first law of energy balance. If you burn off the calories (through your basic body needs and other physical activities and exercises) more than you take in, you'll lose overall weight; and vice versa.

Sometimes, research studies are so nuances that serve no good for practicality.

The largest sports medicine and exercise science organization in the world, ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine), finally issued a press release to formally debunk the myths about weight loss and exercise in response to overwhelming questions and phone calls.

Read the ACSM press release here.

In summary, according Dr. Timothy Church, MD, PhD, the article should have touched the following areas:
  • Weight maintenance is different from weight loss, and should have been discussed. Virtually all people who lose weight and keep it off are exercising to maintain weight.
  • Comments about children and physical activity were misleading. Studies have shown that kids are not necessarily more active after school (and therefore need good in-school physical education program), and that the focus with children should be on physical activity and prevention of excess weight gain. (Adults, however, more often must deal with losing excess weight.)
  • Exercise and diet go together. Weight management is most successful when careful attention is given to both physical activity and proper nutrition.
Janet Rankin, Ph.D., FACSM, an expert in nutrition and exercise, supplemented the bountiful scientific evidence with a simple observation: “A practical response to the claim that exercise makes you eat more and gain weight is to look around. If this were the case, wouldn’t those who regularly exercise be the fattest? Obviously that isn’t the case.”

ACSM experts stressed that, particularly when so many struggle with the health consequences of overweight and obesity, it is important that Americans have accurate information based on science and evidence.

Is Motivation Overrated?

If the world of weight loss, health and fitness, we keep talking about motivation or lack of motivation.

In my private training or boot camp classes, many clients and members initially came to me or the group with the hope of getting motivated.

I realize that most people know they need to exercise, eat healthy, etc, etc, etc. You set the goals in New Year vowing to exercise more and eat better. Then one by one, people start to slack off. Only half people are still on some type of program and routine by June.

So the question is why you can't motivate yourself to do what you want to do? Why some people can stick to it and some fall off the wagon so soon?

Is your mindset to blame?

How an you harness your brain power to become an unstoppble self-motivator?

There are two motivators that we do what we do or don't do.

1. To avoid pain (fear of failure)
2. To gain pleasure (promise of reward)

You are naturally geared toward one of these motivators. To figure out which, think of the last time you accomplished a task and then ask yourself the following: While doing the task were you thinking about what would happen if you failed to finish, or were you thinking about what you would gain when you finished? Take note as to which motivator works for you - fear of failure, or promise of reward.

Set Your Goal

The first step toward unstoppable motivation is to determine your goal. You know for example, that you're unhappy with your body, but what exactly do you want to change? Why is it important to you?

Perhaps you can relate to one of the following goals.
  • You need to lose weight for your health. Your doctor scared you straight or maybe you've had a recent health problem that landed you in the hospital. Your goal is to move away from the pain of sickness.
  • You want to look and feel incredible. You've always wanted to feel vibrant and attractive. The idea of having more energy really excites you. Your goal is to move toward the pleasure and reward of a fit body.
  • You're worried about your kids. They don't eat enough vegetables, they drink more soda pop than water and they play video games constantly. You have decided to model a healthier lifestyle and to encourage your kids to participate. Your goal is to move away from the risks of a sedentary lifestyle and to propel your kids toward a healthy future.

Train Your Mind for Weight Loss

With your clear and important goal in mind, let's take a few minutes to train your mind to achieve it. You know that weight loss comes as a result of eating right and regular challenging exercise, so let's use your mind to conquer both.

Eating Right: Use this exercise to distance yourself from the self-sabotaging foods you really wish you didn't eat, and to naturally begin selecting healthy foods. Take a moment to review your current eating habits. Identify the foods that you should stop eating (hint: sweets, anything fried, refined carbohydrates, sugary drinks). Identify the worst food that you eat regularly but know you shouldn't. Now imagine the healthy foods that you should eat (hint: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean protein). Identify the healthiest food that you know you should eat regularly.

Now with the image of these two foods in mind, find a quiet place and do the following exercise (seriously this stuff works).

  • Draw up the image of your unhealthy food item. This image will likely be quite vivid, with smell, taste and bright color. In your mind, fade this picture to black and white and distance the image until it is dull, fuzzy and remote.
  • Draw up the image of your healthy food item. This image will likely be fuzzy and faded. In your mind, bring this picture to life with smell, taste, sound and bright color.

Regular Exercise: This technique can be applied in a way that encourages you to crave exercise rather than avoid it.

Take a moment to imagine how you feel after a great workout (notice the emphasis on the word after). Remember the physical satisfaction as well as the sweet feeling of accomplishment.

Now bring to your mind the aspects of exercise that you dislike. What is your biggest reason for avoiding exercise? Are you too tired? Do you not have enough time? Is physical exertion too much of a hassle? Pinpoint your greatest complaint about exercise.

Now with the image of these two aspects of exercise in mind, find a quiet place and do the following exercise.

  • Draw up the image of your exercise complaint. The image is likely to be clear and accompanied by the sounds, smells and sensations. In your mind, fade this picture to black and white and distance the image until it is dull, fuzzy and remote.
  • Draw up the image of the wonderful feeling you have after accomplishing a great workout. Magnify this image in your mind. Fixate on how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally. View the experience in bright colors and add a sound track of inspirational music.

Why It Works

If this was your first experience with training your mind (also called Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP) it may have felt a little odd. Many of the world's top achievers regularly use techniques like these to accomplish astounding goals. The techniques above work because they train your mind to bring your behavior in line with your values. Think about it, you value health, you desire to be fit and attractive and you want to instill healthy habits in your kids. These techniques encourage you to avoid self-sabotage and to make choices that line up with what you truly value.

Now that you are ready to accomplish your goals, the next step requires action.That's where we come in. You see, our clients have taken the step foward to keeping themselves accountable to their goals with our help.

Denville Personal Trainer Helps Build a Healthy and Fit Community

Denville Personal Trainer and Boot Camp Instructor Carey Yang has helped build a healthy and fit community by way of a Meetup support group and Fitness Boot Camp.

Morris County Fitness and Weight Loss Meetup - Summer Fitness Boot Camp is the cover story Parsippany This Week, a weekly special to Daily Record.

See online weblink =>

The following is the cover story text from Parsippany This Week by reporter and staff writer Vanessa Vera.

Lake Parsippany resident Lori Wink hasn't been to the gym she's a member of for months. The traditional gym environment is distracting, Wink, 37, said. And she doesn't like the indoor "stuffiness'' of gym facilities, aerobics classes that have patrons "packed like sardines'' and the solo factor of working out in a gym, Wink said.

"When you join a gym you're on your own. I belong to a gym, but there's nobody there to motivate me,'' she said.

But taking her first class with personal fitness instructor Carey Yang, 43, of Denville, was a far more enjoyable and effective experience for Wink, she said. Wink said she loved the class, and days later, "I'm still feeling it. No pain, no gain,'' she said.

Yang, who owns Carey for Fitness Personal Training, recently started a Summer Fitness Bootcamp class in Parsippany. The class, which meets for an hour Wednesday evenings at Veterans Memorial Park on Route 46 East and Vail Road, was borne of an online group he started on social networking web site allows people to form or join groups based on interests in a particular area.

Yang established his group - called Morris County Fitness and Weight Loss - this past spring. From there, he organized the group's first face-to-face meeting in mid June, and a week later, he held the first bootcamp class in the park.

Classes are $10 per session and are on a pay-as-you-go basis, Yang said. There is no registration or contract, and people are not required to be part of the online group which, Yang said, he originally formed as a support group to reach more people interested in weight loss and healthy living in a way that was affordable for them.

Though only a handful of the online group's 26 members have attended the bootcamp classes Yang recently started, his intentions from the beginning were to maintain a small class size - like a small personal training group, he said.

"I want a group class but, in the meantime, I also want to give each individual personal attention,'' he said.

Though the fitness classes are taught in bootcamp style, individuals work at their own pace and fitness level, Yang said. Eventually, he'd like to expand the class to three times a week - moving beyond "fitness training 101'' and "kicking up the intensity'' to see results. But, for beginners, the weekly class is a good way to teach students how to work out on their own, Yang said.

"At least once a week also provides some type of support, motivation and sharing,'' Yang said. "I think the group dynamic is great because people basically share their success stories, their challenges, and we can offer solutions to each other.''

Yang said he'd like his students to walk away from the class with "a healthy and powerful mindset and attitude ... and this group at least provides some motivation and information to keep them going.

Seeking a venue to pull her back into a fitness regimen is what drew Lake Parsippany resident Melissa Paszko, 40, to Yang's class.

Paszko, who said she has battled with weight throughout her adult life, lost 120 pounds through diet and exercise several years ago. But over the last few years she got out of her exercise routine and gained some of the weight back - something she was not happy about.

"I always felt better when I was working out five days a week,'' Paszko said.

When she read about Yang's class, she thought it would be fun. And after just one session, Paszko was already enjoying her workout, she said.

"When I left there, I felt that I had finally found something that was affordable, that I was really going to enjoy,'' she said. ""(Carey) was very encouraging; he was very helpful. I think it's going to be a plus in my life working with him.'

Lake Hiawatha resident Ruby Darmanin heard about Yang's class through She was looking for a workout venue that was inexpensive and close by, she said.

"I'm not big on exercise - I never was. It's a hard thing for me to do, not something I enjoy. So I need somebody to push me,'' Darmanin, who is semi retired and currently works part-time, said.
And Carey, she said, is enthusiastic. The classes are better than anything she's tried, including at gyms, which bore her to death, Darmanin said. ""Just having a person like (Carey) helps,'' she said.

Though weight loss would be an added benefit, Darmanin said it is not her main goal in working out. She simply wants to keep fit. And whether or not Carey's classes will prove successful for Darmanin, she said, is strictly up to her.

"I have to be more committed in order to stay in shape,'' she said.

For Lake Parsippany resident Danielle Stecky, daily walks around Lake Parsippany have gone a long way in keeping her fit. But she wanted to try something that would go a step further and help her loose inches around her stomach area and tone her muscles.

For years, Stecky actively did aerobics and weight lifting, but about five years ago she got out of that routine. Initially, when she heard of Yang's bootcamp, she wasn't sure it was for her, Stecky said. She thought it would be an intense class built for 18-year-olds where she wouldn't be able to keep up.

But after a phone conversation with Carey, he assured Stecky she could work at her own pace and she decided to try a class out.

At first, she thought the exercises and seemingly endless squats were too simplistic. But a day or two later, she was feeling the effects of the workout in her body - particularly in her legs - she said.

"It was a good experience and I do want to do it again,'' Stecky said. ""But I'm not going to do so many squats next time.''
