Morris County Personal Trainer Carey Yang Advocates Parent Participation to Fight Childhood Obesity


New Jersey Fitness Expert and certified personal trainer Carey Yang urges parents and family participation to fight increasing adult and childhood obesity rates.

DENVILLE, NJ — August 23, 2010 — America’s unstoppable obesity rates would account for more than $860 billion healthcare cost by 2030. “This is an alarmingly tough uptrend to fight againist,” says Carey Yang, a Certified Personal Trainer, fitness expert and president of Beyond Fitness Solutions, LLC based in Denville, New Jeresy.

According to a recent report, Americans are continuing to get fatter and fatter, with obesity rates reaching 30 percent or more in nine states last year, as opposed to only three states in 2007.

“This is a trend reversal from a study release earlier this year that, obesity rates have remained constant for at least five years among men and for closer to 10 years among women and children,” Yang says.

Yang says, we have so many government agencies, non-profit organizations, communities and schools involved to fight both adult and childhood obesity with a variety of programs. Even the First Lady Michelle Obama early this year launched a campaign to fight childhood obesity by improving childhood nutrition and physical activity.

“Nutrition and exercise start from home. Parents hold the key to educating their children,” Yang says. “Parents should be good role models for their children. If your children see you slouch in front of the tube and dig into a bag of chips along with a bottle of beer, it’s hard to resist the same lifestyle. Chunky Mom, plus chunky Dad, often equals chunky kids and pets.”

Yang advocates parents and family involvements in fighting against obesity. Health and fitness is truly a family matter. He offers a few solutions to promoting active lifestyle and making healthy choices.

1. Be a positive role model. Parents have to set a good example for themselves and for their children such as regular exercise, being active and eating a healthy balanced die.

2. Set family time to prepare meals and exercise together. Research shows that families eating and exercising together also stay closer.

3. Assign household chores. Children can learn the value of responsibility by sharing active household chores while increasing physical activity.

4. Limit sedentary activities. Watching TV and playing electronic games have taken so much time and opportunity out of moving around and exercising. Studies have shown that reducing TV time is associated with reductions in body weight and body fat.

It’s a day-to-day process and a series of repeated small steps that add up to awesome health habits. “Every time you choose the vegetables over the chips, a walk over a drive, and an active game over T.V., you’ve just made another donation to yourself and to your families lifetime health and fitness fund,” Yang says.
