Fall 2016: Finishing Up Week #1

Friday - September 9, 2016


GE Headquarters
Allendale, NJ

So we are excited for our transition from Summer to Fall at the Shop as our college athletes already have a few weeks into their regular seasons and we have received lots of positive results with regard to entering preseason strong & fit and getting regular playing time on the gridiron, soccer pitch, volleyball court... etc.

As far as our Shop, we are trying to educate the locals on why it is important to train in the off season, pre season and during your season. We truly thought that at some point it would get a little easier in our 14th Fall, but society and youth sports has morphed into a different entity and we have to inform the public of the missing piece in the development of student athletes - Strength & Conditioning.

We have received a lot of feedback on our new motto: "GEt Serious" and not all positive. In fact, we think that it is evident that we may have lost a few people that may have lacked drive this Summer and therefore they are taking a break or perhaps joining a health club.

After ALL this time in the private sector and building a state of the art performance center, it is time to truly cement the parameters for what Good Energy Training is in Allendale, NJ. It has never been an "open gym" for the Community, but rather a structured program personally written for your fitness or performance goals.

We love to introduce NEW clients to our program, but we want them to know that we will take their goals seriously and it's not just a gym to grab a workout - it's a commitment and a lifestyle.

GE FALL Starts in One Week

September 6 - November 26, 2016


Allendale, NJ

Our Fall training "officially" begins on Tuesday after Labor day, but we are excited that some of our student athletes and adults are already signed up and committed to train with our team this Fall.

As we enter our 14th Fall we have become less tolerant to those folks who are kind of "half way in" when it comes to training with us. In order to reach your fitness or performance goals, you have to commit to our training program and make the weekly sessions a priority in your schedule as well as commit financially.

We have been assisting adults and athletes reach their goals since 2003 and it is what we do. We take your fitness and performance goals seriously and want you to understand that this is not "just a gym" and that we genuinely pride our program on improving your goals and weaknesses through our training program.

Homan selected as Pre-Season ALL AMERICAN

Boston College bound - Julia Homan - NH Soccer


Look who is our latest pre-season ALL AMERICAN!

Julia Homan started training with our team before her freshman year at Northern Highlands. She crammed a few GE Speed classes in before pre-season to get a jump start for high school soccer.

Julia grew tall and accustomed to Varsity soccer quickly as she contributed as a freshman and earned her college scholarship to Boston College as a sophomore.

Now, as a senior she returns for a 4th season hoping to continue Highlands perennial success and keep the reigns as one of the best programs in the country let alone the northeast & NJ.

Homan is joined on the pre-season All American team by her NH Teammate & former GE client, Eva Hurmm. Previous pre-season All Americans include GE's Casey Richards (Georgetown), Hana Kerner (University of Virginia) & Clare Shea (Army-West Point).

We are lucky to be down the street from an unbelievable soccer program run by legendary coach Tara Madigan & excited to assist her efforts with some productive work off the field at Good Energy Training.

GE Baseball Players - Build Strength in the Fall

Anthony D'Alessandro (Mahwah HS / Duke University)


In the Fall of Anthony D'Alessandro's Junior year, he did not play Fall baseball or Football. Anthony trained 3-4 days per week with our staff at Good Energy Training.

He trained lower and upper body workouts, speed workouts on turf and grass as well as alternative strength training as seen in the rope sled pull in the Shop.

Anthony's goal was to get a scholarship to play baseball for a DI school with quality academics. He did just that with a scholarship from Duke in the Summer of this year, however not after a lot of Hard Work.

In addition to his year long work with our staff, Anthony chose to run Winter Track for the TBirds to work on his speed for the National Showcases. He ran Sprints for the Winter Track team and continued his strength training at GE!

If you want to play at your best and have goals to reach a higher level in Spring sports, do no wait until preseason to prepare. The time is now and our Fall program begins the Tuesday after Labor Day - 9/06 through 11/26/16.

Winter Success - starts with a Fall Plan

Brandon Anderson - Brown University


Last Fall Brandon Anderson signed his Letter of Intent with an Ivy League school - Brown University.

Brandon went on to lead the Don Bosco Prep Ironmen to it's first State Championship since the 1970's and finished his high school career in a celebrated style.

What most people did not see is ALL of Brandon's HARD WORK in our program, on his driveway and with his AAU team.

The Athlete's that Perform the BEST are doing EXTRA Work when the lights are not on. Brandon was committed to GE Training from his 8th grade Summer before he entered Don Bosco Prep all the way to College.

We are preparing our schedule for Fall and we are hoping to see some NEW Faces of serious Student Athletes and their Parents that understand that a planned Strength & Conditioning program that caters to the Athlete's needs during the off season and preseason will help them achieve their Goals for their Sport.

Proud of ALL GE Positive Results - Summer 2016



This picture is great because it is the culmination of a Summer of HARD WORK in the GE BackYard. Brady Roark (Amy Roark) is a rising sophomore for Mahwah HS's football team and Lacrosse. He spent most of his Summer like most other high school lacrosse players - at showcases and tournaments all over the east coast. Brady was different however, because he also put IN THE WORK when he was home to learn & improve his Strength & Conditioning with our Staff at GE. Yesterday, Brady went from starting with the Bar & green 25lb plates in May 2016 to 250 pounds in the Back Squat. We are excited for Brady and know that his HARD WORK will pay off when he hits the gridiron in two weeks for the Thunderbirds! ‪#GEResults‬ ‪#ITSPersonal‬ ‪#EVERYTHINGTOPROVE‬ ‪#TRAINWITHAPRO‬ ‪#GETAKINGOVER‬ ‪#SINCE2003

Summer 2016 - Week #7

Testing PHASE II - In Two Weeks


GE Shop

Since we began training in the Shop in 2003 we have utilized different modalities to increase Strength.

The Towel Bench has been one of our staple exercises in order to load more weight for the bench press and familiarize the student athlete with feeling the increased weight in their hands and to get more confident securing strength gains.

In addition this week, our Lower Body main lift is the Safety Bar squat. We will decrease the percentages a little due to the altered lift, but we feel that our variety of lifts with appropriate tonnage assists our athletes in increasing their strength, minimize staleness in our program and continue to maximize on our previous testing numbers.

Power cleans this week are 4x2 @ 85% of the max.

Our "In Season" Athletes will be performing a total body routine consisting of 2 circuits with an organized sequence of 12 exercises in each.

The Wednesday/Thursday Upper Body routine is a compilation of Chest, Back, Shoulders, Arms and Core/Abs. The workout is written with a higher volume to cater to all our adults and In Season athletes and then we specifically write the numbers for everyone so they do not have to think and can experience an appropriately written personal training workout.
