SPEED TRAINING CONTINUES - FALL 2010

Friday - October 29, 2010


      

Under the direction of Andy Romans, the Good Energy Athlete's have continued to work hard at Elite Training Academy's Indoor Turf Field in Franklin Lakes.

We have been fortunate that several younger Athlete's have signed up for our training this Fall. Our Staff has enjoyed teaching proper running mechanics and athletic movements with the GE YOUTH on Tuesday evenings from 6-8pm.

At Good Energy Training we are developing the COMPLETE ATHLETE and speed and agility is a large part of our program. In order for our Athlete's to maximize their abilities on the field they have to move well and be in proper condition. This also allows for them to minimize their risk for injury because they move efficiently while playing their sport.

Grbelja's 9 Kills Lead Indian Hills to WIN #13

Wednesday - October 26, 2010


      

We ALWAYS say at the Shop - "Ride the STREAK!"


That's exactly what Tayler Grbjela and the Lady Braves are doing for Indian Hills Volleyball Team at the end of their Fall Season. Taylor is pictured making a Kill against Ramsey two weeks ago.

As noted in the Bergen Record's Volleyball Report yesterday, "Indian Hills hitting stride at right time" - the Braves continued their winning ways yesterday defeating Westwood 2 games to 1 to improve their record to 13-8.

For more on yesterday's article go to the Article's section on this site. It's worth noting that Taylor was also mentioned as a Runner-Up for Athlete of the Week this week behind Depaul's cross country runner - Alyssa LaGuardia.

Hearing from GE Client's about their Success...
...NEVER gets old! : )



School Before Sports...

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


      


Bronx, NY

...usually.

But on Wednesday "little GE" left school early and headed to the "House that Ruth Built" to "learn about Sports."

Watching the Pro's is important in the maturation of any young athlete & is helpful in learning good habits. (for the most part)

So when GE signed out John for early dismissal - the "Reason" on the General Office Note was for a FIELD TRIP!

It was great to get to the Stadium early and watch the Yankees in the Batting Cage before the Rangers.

We cheered loud so the Yanks could beat the Rangers 7-2 and make the ALCS 3 games to 2 with the series heading back to Arlington,Texas.

Zack Borglum AIMS to please!

Wednesday, October 20. 2010


      



Unfortunately we are going to have to go to a Ramsey Soccer game, otherwise we have to continue to use this picture to tell about Zack's Success on the soccer field.



Yesterday we gave Zach a call to see if he could train on Tuesday since the Rams were knocked out of the County Tournament on Sunday. He said he couldn't because they played Indian Hills in Franklin Lakes under the lights.

We told Zack "No Worries" but we just want to keep him on track for his scheduled 2x per week "IN-SEASON" program at GE. We did ask him to continue his string of being in the Bergen Record because he has been tallying alot of goals and assists for the Rams this year albeit very unassuming in our gym.

Sure enough, we open the paper at GE today and...

4-2 Rams win
2 GOALS and 1 ASSIST by Zach Borglum!

Zach - Great Job and keep the strength, confidence and point streak Rollin'!

Female Athlete of the Week: Catherine Peebles

Tuesday, October 19, 2010


      

Catherine Peebles probably wouldn’t have found field hockey had she not grown up a few doors down from Kristin Heaney in Allendale.

Peebles played soccer through eighth grade, but Heaney, a former Northern Highlands field hockey standout, turned her on to the game. Heaney has graduated from one of Bergen County’s top programs, but Peebles has played a vital role in the 11-3 team’s success this season, her first as a varsity starter.

"Soccer used to be my favorite sport," said Peebles, The Record Female Athlete of the Week. "Obviously, now it’s field hockey. It was hard [to give up soccer], but I’m really glad I’m playing field hockey now."

Her possession skills in the midfield have been instrumental in the defending Bergen champion getting off to its best start in 10 years and returning to the County final on Sunday against Ramsey.

"Everyone is saying we’re kind of a young team, since we lost 11 of our seniors," said Peebles, a junior. "But I think a really huge part of our team success is our senior leadership this year. They’re all really great leaders and we’re all able to look to them for advice."

Away from field hockey, Peebles serves as a student treasurer and enjoys drawing and painting. She might minor in art in college, where she’d also like to play field hockey.

Still, she expects to major in business because she has been drawn to the success of her father Douglas, who works for an asset-management firm in Manhattan.

She squeezes watching "Glee" into her busy academic and athletic schedules, but Peebles pays plenty of attention to field hockey even when she isn’t competing for Northern Highlands.

Once her high school team’s season ends, she’ll head to Arizona with many of her Northern Highlands teammates for a club tournament over Thanksgiving break.

"We’re still having Thanksgiving [dinner] out there," a laughing Peebles said. "That should be a lot of fun."

Also nominated: West Milford’s Jamie Hammell for gymnastics; Clifton’s Rachel Egyed for soccer; Northern Highlands’ Jennifer Forhecz and Old Tappan’s Aiyana Whitney for volleyball.



...NOT just another Monday at the Good Energy Shop

October 18, 2010


      


First of All:

Happy Birthday to Torry Larson & Mike Hovey!


The GE Weekend was a "Revolution" in itself!


Friday we watched Taylor Grbelja excel in Volleyball for Indian Hills against Ramsey. Saturday we headed to Princeton to catch Kelly Kittredge (pictured #22) skate for Brown University for the first time as a freshman. She was FAST, STRONG, CONFIDENT....and it was AWESOME to watch her in person.

On the way home GE learned that Kevin O'Shea earned some more playing time at wide receiver for Franklin & Marshall, Greg Stripe got his 1st victory with Lafayette this Fall & Zak Ross-Nash had 2 td's in Highlands loss to Teaneck.

Sunday continued the GE Weekend!

Jodi Culloty texted that Timmmy played exceptional in the Stevens Tech's Final Lacrosse game of the Fall scoring 2 goals and was awarded the game ball.

Highlands & Ramsey won their Field Hockey games & will meet next Sunday in the County Final, and Anthony D'Alessandro emailed some links to read about his success on the baseball diamond for Duke this weekend.

5 for 11 - 3 Runs Scored - 2 RBI - 1 stolen base

The biggest news of the weekend came via text while on the hayride at Rohsler's Allendale Nursery - from GE's MOST RECENT Bergen Record Athlete of the Week - CATHERINE PEEBLES!! Yup, you read it first here. NH Field Hockey Junior received this award and shared with us prior to being interviewed on Sunday at 5pm. It will be IN the paper on Tuesday - 10/19/10.

DO YOU GET THE PICTURE?!!
GE REVOLUTION 2010 is GOING - S-T-R-O-N-G...
...this FALL - IT'S ALL ABOUT THE RESULTS on the field, ice, diamond...etc.!

GE on the Road this Weekend!

Friday, October 15, 2010


      

Ramsey, NJ

It was great to see Taylor Grbelja #19 - Junior at Indian Hills H.S. collect 5 kills en route to a 2 Set to 0 Win over Ramsey.

The Braves won two closely played sets in the match en route to victories of 25-22 and 25-19. It was great to watch Taylor LIVE this Fall as she is being recruited for her Volleyball talent & GE wants to continue to be a Resource for her in the process.

Congratulations, Taylor!

Taylor is NOW driving to GE after successfully passing her driving test on her birthday, 10/07/10 and it seems like yesterday that we saw her play 8th grade basketball for Franklin Avenue Middle School (FAMS) a few years ago.

Helping Athlete's Mature in OUR Program!



Where are they Now?

MIKE DARMANTE, JR. - #34 - Ramsey Rams - 2005


      


Most "where are they nows" are about what a person is doing now with a flashback to a story in which they excelled years prior.




We don't know what Mike Darmante, Jr. is up to now.
We do know he is a Senior in college at UNC-Charlotte and will obtain a profitable job easily.

Ww also know that 6 years ago the GOOD ENERGY STAFF made a difference for him ON THE FIELD - and he has Results to Show for it.

Mike Darmante, Jr. was arguably the BEST baseball player in Ramsey as an 8th grader until an accident on the field made him nearly lose his eyesight. Then, as a sophomore in high school he tore his ACL in gym class playing basketball.

Then the story gets better. Mike arrives at GE shortly following his ACL Surgery - to PERFORM BETTER! We shape NOT ONLY his Body, but his MIND, that HE CAN PLAY GREAT on Saturdays....and HE DOES!

At 5'9 180 pounds he was not the intimidating Athlete he was at the SAME SIZE as an 8th grader. But his experiences developed him into a mature Senior and he appreciated the remaining time he had to play football with his friends at Ramsey High.

This picture is the Culmination of ALL Mike's HARD WORK at the GE Shop. He MADE this sack and two interceptions against Bergenfield on that day in October 2005. The 2nd Interception sealed the win for the Rams in Overtime and is still one of our Favorite pictures that hangs in the Shop.

The pictures were taken by GE Owner, Pete Ohnegian who was thrilled to be on the sideline that day to witness ALL Mike's Hard Work Pay Off first hand.

This is WHAT GOOD ENERGY IS ALL about.

You want to Play Better?
You want the Most out of THE SMALL WINDOW to play competitive sports?
We can HELP YOU play at your Best!

Play for Pink - NH vs. Ramsey Field Hockey

Tuesday, October 2, 2010


      

Ramsey, NJ

"Play for Pink" was the cause that the Northern Highlands and Ramsey field hockey teams played for on Tuesday. You can see by the picture that it was a Special game for a special cause - to help raise awareness and find a cure for Breast Cancer.


But between these two perennial talented teams and rivals, they did not need any added fuel to the fire to play one another. It turned out to be a Showcase game with the Highlanders going up 2-0 before the Rams scratched back to 2-2 by halftime.

The Highlanders remained in the lead shortly after halftime and added another to make it 4-2. Ramsey was not giving up when they tallied a goal to make the score 4-3, and the game concluded with the Rams peppering the Highlands goal for the last 7 minutes of the game.

Highlanders were ecstatic by their 4-3 win on the Road.

Congratulations to BOTH Right Wings for the Rams and the Highlanders. Senior Tara Welch of Ramsey participated in the GE Speed this Summer and Junior Catherine Peebles (2 assists) has trained at the GE Shop since Freshman year.

We get the feeling that these two teams will meet again - maybe in the Bergen County Tournament, so we will keep you in the loop with these two rivals.

Good Energy was not just taking pictures (Roster). We also were proud to donate toward the "Race for the Cure" cause on behalf of both Tara and Catherine and we gave the check to Mr. Rich Lio - Principal at Ramsey H.S.

Tim Cobb (pictured at GE Shop) made a diving Save on the final shot in penalty kicks to lift fourth-seed Ramsey to a 2-1 victory over No. 10 Pascack Hills, 4-3, in the second round of the Bergen County boys soccer tournament.

PEEBLES' HAT TRICK LIFTS HIGHLANDERS
Junior right wing Catherine Peebles scored three straight goals and Brianna Dunn had two assists to help second-seeded Northern Highlands defeat seventh-seeded Old Tappan 4-0, in the first round of the Bergen County field hockey tournament on Sunday

A third HEADLINE was Ridgewood girl's soccer, but we only trained Sammy Giordano, so we won't "take Credit" for the TEAM win!

Congratulation to Timmy & Catherine! Hard Work-Pays Off...and we love when our Athlete's are Leaders for their TEAM!

Week #6 - Fall 2010 Training at the Shop

Monday 10.11.2010


      

With so many Athlete's performing "In-Season" this Fall we want you to know how the GE Athlete's are doing at the Shop.

This Fall we initiated a Special Testing protocol for our Athlete's training Hard at the Shop. The Testing Program is a good barometer for our/their training the past 12 weeks. This week signifies the halfway mark, so we will throw in some special exercises to monitor where everyone is...i.e. "Midterms!"

Pictured is Zack Borglum. Zack plays Varsity Soccer for Ramsey as a Junior, but is training 2x per week at GE this Fall to increase his Upper Body strength for Baseball.

Stay tuned for MIDTERM Grades at the Shop!
