Baseball Pitching Coach – Greg Dombrowski now at BEYOND MOTION®

We are very fortunate to have Coach Dombrowski join Beyond Motion® this summer for #pitching lessons. Between the analytics, we can offer within the facility and the pro-style mound outside, it’s the perfect set-up for our pitching coach.

As a player, Greg led Rome Free Academy to 2 sectional championships and a trip to the State Final Four in 2003. He was named the Central New York Pitcher of the Year after the 2003 season as well as a 3 time all league, all Central New York and All-State player each of his 3 seasons at RFA. After graduation, he attended the University of Kentucky for four years playing in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) leading UK to their first-ever SEC championship in 2006. In 2006, he led the pitching staff with a 10-2 record and a 2.83 ERA. That year he beat five top 25 nationally ranked teams including a complete game in the NCAA regional over Notre Dame.

Greg played on 3 nationally ranked teams before leaving Kentucky with the second most wins in school history and is still the school record holder in career winning percentage with a 23-5 career record. He was named a 3rd team pre-season All-American his Junior season, an All-South Region performer, and was on the Roger Clemens Award Watch List 3 years, a list comprised of the top 50 pitchers in college baseball and given to the nation’s best.


After graduating from Kentucky with a degree in Kinesiology and Health Education, Greg played in the Cincinnati Reds Minor League System before succumbing to a career-ending shoulder injury requiring surgery.

Chris Sale conditioned self for success he’s enjoying

Chris Sale conditioned self for success he’s enjoying

 We love sharing all of the latest news about our athletes… This was posted today in the Chicago Tribune. 

On any given Friday last offseason in Naples, Fla., visitors combing Vanderbilt Beach might catch the sight of a 6-foot-6 paddleboarder in the Atlantic Ocean or see the same tall, lanky athlete catching footballs at Pelican Bay Park.

During baseball season, White Sox ace Chris Sale works every fifth day. But once it ends, that’s how often Sale’s personal trainer in southwest Florida lets him play — relatively speaking. So every Friday from November until early February, Sale capped a rigorous workout week with an entertaining physical exercise outside the gym that broke up the monotony.

“We tried to keep it fun on Fridays,” said Rick Lademann, the co-founder of Beyond Motion health and fitness facility who has trained Sale the last four years. “Paddleboarding, running wind sprints in the park, catching Hail Mary passes … he got some looks.”

On this Friday in Yankees Stadium in New York, Sale will command stares again as he tries to become the first Sox pitcher since Jon Garland in 2005 to win his first eight starts. A Sale of the century indeed; the lefty with electric stuff became only the fifth Sox pitcher since 1913 to start 7-0. He breezed through batting orders with a 1.79 earned-run average over 50 1/3 innings — the highest total in the American League after his last start Sunday.

Sale’s stamina has been as impressive as his devastating slider, endurance Lademann says hardly came by accident. More by design.

“When Chris first came to us four years ago, he never had been through something like this so now he understands his body more,” said Lademann, a Loyola Academy graduate from Deerfield who worked under Bulls strength coach Al Vermeil from 1996-2000. “Chris matured astronomically. The biggest growth has come from the mental side. He wants it.”

While Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta’s famous fitness regimen caused the team to name a Pilates room for him in its new clubhouse, Sale’s commitment to conditioning received much less fanfare. With a quick start in mind, Sale appeared last Nov. 1, weeks before Lademann expected him, intent on improving his body.

“I saw an urgency in Chris I usually see with NFL players I train,” said Lademann, 41.

And they trained hard, according to how Lademann described the four-hour-per-day workout week that led up to the fun-filled Fridays.

Monday: In what Lademann called “dynamic pre-hab” to prevent injuries, Sale focused on everything from rotator-cuff exercises to lower-leg squats and dead lifts. They dedicated 30 minutes to soft tissue and finished with stretching.

Tuesday: The high-volume intensity day included circuit training, with four exercises specifically designed for Sale.

Wednesday: On the day devoted to Pilates, Sale followed instructor Amy Lademann, Rick’s wife and facility co-founder, and concentrated on his core and flexibility.

Thursday: A heavy lifting day, Sale focused on his glutes and leg muscles, eventually building up enough power to squat 255 pounds eight times, according to Lademann.

“He’s a skinny guy but strong as hell,” Lademann said.

Yet in this young season of promise, Sale has left a deeper impression with his mental strength. He boldly took on club executive Kenny Williams after the Adam LaRoche saga, a risky public stand that unified the Sox and clearly identified Sale as a clubhouse leader. He stayed professional even when the Sox’s cutting of buddy John Danks stung personally. But most significantly, Sale slightly adjusted his approach on the mound, trusting the Sox’s improved defense enough this year to pitch to contact rather than go for the strikeout every time.

Oh, Sale still possesses that fiery intensity that caused him to hit himself in the head with a baseball last Sunday in frustration — but he also uses it more to his advantage. Testament of that headiness came from Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki after Sale’s last start.

“He’s smart,” Suzuki told “He’s not just a thrower. He’s doing a little more finesse stuff this year than in the past.”

As for the future, Sale seems well-suited as the franchise player for a Sox organization that holds team options for two seasons after his contract expires in 2017. That price certainty for Sale removes the anxiety surrounding Arrieta’s next deal. Comparing Chicago aces, Arrieta has sounded more unsettled about his contract in the last two months than Sale ever has in the three years since signing his — a five-year, $32.5 million package that is baseball’s best bargain.

Yet those who know Sale best say he measures worth in other ways.

“He’s authentic,” Lademann said. “He’s like a hermit — he doesn’t go out. He loves his wife (Brianne) and son (Rylan) … and video games. He’s not into the limelight. There is no rock-star mentality. He’s a blue-collar guy from Lakeland, Fla., who grew up without a lot of money and has stayed true to who he is.”

Staying true to his routine, Lademann will send Sale a text before Friday’s start the way he always does. A trainer never stops training prized pupils.

“Just little stuff to let him know I’m watching,” Lademann said. “I think my last one was: ‘Excellence is defined by consistency and consistency is defined by location.”

At this stage of the season, and his career, it’s hard to imagine Sale in a better place.

Ex-FGCU star Chris Sale of White Sox soaks up Night at the Nest

Dec. 04, 2015

FORT MYERS — The growing legend of Chris Sale keeps getting larger, but he’ll never be too big for the school that really helped him start it all.

As he has since its inception in 2010, the Chicago White Sox starter, four-time American League All-Star and 2010 Collegiate Player of the Year was back at Florida Gulf Coast University on Friday for the annual Night at the Nest, the athletics fundraiser for the Eagles.

“This is where I really grew up,” Sale said. “I feel at home here as much as anywhere else. I always like to come here pretty soon after I get home to catch up. Spill my guts; they spill their guts. We exchange stories and just kind of catch up. It’s fun. You can’t not like coming here.”

Dressed in the usual untucked plaid shirt above jeans and sporting the same close-cropped hairstyle from his college days, the first-ever Eagle to have his jersey (No. 41) retired was again at the sold-out fundraiser with his college sweetheart and wife of three years, Brianna. Five-year-old son Rylan sat this one out, but Sale was quick to pull out slow-motion video of him driving, quite impressively, plastic golf balls from his backyard. The Sales have a home not far from campus, and Sale often works out at FGCU in the offseason.

In fact, he’s already been there quite a bit. He’s also been working out yet again with Rick Lademann of Beyond Motion in Naples. On Wednesdays he does Pilates with Lademann’s wife, Amy, as he did a few years ago.

“They’ve always been great to me over there,” Sale said. “This is my fourth year now, so more of the same.”

Pickleball Tournament for Ovarian Cancer

“The event “Connect for the Cause” is near and dear to our hearts. Our family, like many others, has been touched by ovarian cancer more than once. Rick’s mother Diane and Diane’s sister Nancy have both battled this disease, and our family knows first hand how important education, support and resources are. With symptoms going unnoticed or misdiagnosed, it is very important that women and their families know what to look for, what tests are available, and what to ask their doctors. They need to know that they have a support system and that people care.”   (read their stories below)

In order to help raise awareness BEYOND MOTION will sponsor “Connect for the Cause” a pickleball tournament for all of Collier and Lee County on Saturday, June 13th at Veterans Park Tennis Courts.

Diane’s Story
diane lademannI was diagnosed in Dec. of 2008 with Stage 3C serous ovarian cancer having no previous symptoms. Since my sister, Nancy, was diagnosed at the age of 46 I was getting a CA125 blood test and ultrasounds on a yearly basis since her diagnosis. It was during that time that my blood test in 2008 was high and something could be seen on the ultrasound.

As of May 2015 I have gone through four rounds of treatment, (6 treatments per round) and have an estimated year of freedom in between rounds. I seem to tolerate the treatments pretty well but credit this with accompanying the treatments with acupuncture, “kinda” healthy eating; and, up until a little over a year ago, regular exercise.

Your world is turned upside down with the initial diagnosis. It’s on your mind day and night. But, in time, you learn to live with your “new normal” and just be so darn thankful for the phenomenal support given by your family and friends.

Not a day goes by that I’m not fully aware of all the beauty that surrounds me; and what a huge source of inspiration and help my sister, Nancy, has given me. I can see first-hand a 20 year survivor of ovarian cancer.

Nancy’s Story

I was diagnosed November, 1996, Stage IV Ovarian Cancer.IMG_4009

Initial symptoms were very vague in the early Spring. Just not feeling well, indigestion, gerd like symptoms. Then I started to get pain on my right side that radiated to my shoulder. They initially thought it was a gall bladder problem. After multiple tests and CT scans they could not determine the problem. Since my cancer was under 2cm it was never detected on a CT Scan, and nobody ever ran a CA125. My gynecologist discovered a cyst on my ovary through an ultrasound but after being reviewed by an oncologist, it did not look suspicious. Still no CA125 was run.

At this point, kids were off to college in the fall and we decided in Oct. to pick them up for a weekend away. While we were out walking I couldn’t catch my breath. Went back to the Dr. and found fluid on my lung. When it was drained they found carcinoma cells and sent me for a upper body CT scan thinking it was probably breast related. All negative. So now they look at that cyst again and this is now November. Thank goodness my gynecologist brought an oncologist into the surgery with him, because the cancer had spread throughout my abdomen and was staged at IV. CA 125 was run right before surgery and was over 300. The oncologist never revealed the stage to me until much later. When I asked he just said “right in the middle” and “don’t worry about that now”. I probably would have given up right then if I knew it was a Stage IV Cancer.

One important lesson I have learned is you need to be your own Medical Advocate. ALWAYS GET A SECOND OPINION. If you don’t like something or have questions, always feel free to ASK those questions. If you are not getting satisfaction and complete explanations from your Dr., Change Doctors. Second Opinions, Research and Experimental Trials was my life from 1996 to 2001.By the grace of God and lots and lots of prayers I have been cancer free since 2001.

Connect For The Cause

On Saturday, November 19, 2011, Beyond Motion will sponsor “Connect for the Cause” – a Nia Dance Party to raise awareness and funds for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC).

Nia is a totally fun, energetic, fat-blasting, cardio class that combines cool moves from latin and modern dance, martial arts, and yoga. This rockin’ day in the park will get your body moving and your heart pumping as you dance to everything from latin beats to lounge music.

“Connect for the Cause”, Nia Dance Party takes place at Cambier Park in front of the bandshell on Saturday, November 19, 2011, from 9:00–11:00am. Registration begins at 8:30.

This event is near and dear to our hearts. Our family, like many others, has been touched by ovarian cancer more than once. My husband’s mother and her sister have both battled this disease, and our family knows first hand how important education and support are. With symptoms going unnoticed or misdiagnosed, it is very important that women and their families know what to look for, what tests are available, and what to ask their doctors. They need to know that they have a support system here in Collier County, and that people care.

Ovarian cancer impacts entire families and communities. It is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women ages 35–74. An estimated one woman in 58 will develop ovarian cancer during her lifetime. When one is diagnosed and treated in the earliest stages, the 5-year survival rate is over 90%. However, due to ovarian cancer’s non-specific symptoms and lack of early detection tests, only 19% of all cases are found at this early stage. If caught in stage III or higher, the survival rate can be as low as 30.6%. Due to the nature of the disease, each woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer has a different profile and it is impossible to provide a general prognosis.

NOCC chapters, survivors, loved ones, caregivers and healthcare professionals, work together to bring crucial ovarian cancer programs and services to communities nationwide. We are looking to create awareness and support here in Collier County by hosting A Nia Dance Party, “Connect for the Cause”.

Our goal is to raise at least $5,000 for the NOCC, by producing the first annual event “Connect for the Cause” on Saturday, November 19, 2011. Suggested donation $25. During the Nia Dance Party, we will be selling raffle tickets for $20. Raffle prizes include merchandise and gift certificates, from local business such as Naples Grande, Steamers Restaurant, A. Jaron Jewlers, Gulfshore Playhouse, Facial Esthetique, Hue Nails, and more.

Beyond Motion Hosts Annual Fundraiser For The Susan G. Komen Foundation

Amy Lademann, co-founder of Beyond Motion, will be hosting their annual “THINK PINK NIA” event on Saturday, November 6th 9:30-10:30 to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation SWFL chapter.

“I remember seeing a sign in the Denver International Airport that read, ŕ out of every 2 women will develop breast cancer, will it be you or your mother?” and I knew that I had to do something. This event is about sharing my passion for movement and to help people to come together in a fun, energetic way for support and awareness. It’s important for everyone to know that breast cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence.”- Amy Lademann

This is the 3rd year Amy will host THINK PINK NIA, and the first year for the event to be held at the Beyond Motion fitness studio.Beyond Motion’s annual “THINK PINK NIA” event is actually a high energy, low-impact Nia class. The Nia Technique is cardio dance class that leads to health, wellness, and a love for fitness. People are drawn to Nia because it allows them to workout in an intelligent, yet playful way, by connecting their body to their mind and their spirit.

Nia (pronounced nee-uh)draws from disciplines of the martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts. Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core, and the upper extremities. Classes are traditionally danced barefoot to increase balance and coordination, and the fun, energetic music comes from artists throughout the world. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels.

While the Nia technique ( has been around for more than 20 years, Amy brought Nia to Naples 6 years ago. “I love sharing this program with people. Having danced Nia since 1997, I’ve heard a myriad of success stories from people of all ages and fitness levels. From weight loss and increased energy, to developing better body awareness, to increased range of motion and better balance. There is something for everyone in Nia.

“THINK PINK NIA” is on Saturday, November 6th. Registration starts at 9:00 and class runs from 9:30-10:30. This is a donation based class. All checks may be payable to Susan G. Komen for the Cure South West Florida. Everyone is welcome!
