The humble beginnings of Next Generation Training Center started in February of 2015, exactly 5 years ago today, in about 500 square feet that were located inside a baseball training academy. Originally, the gym was going to be used to primarily train youth athletes. But, that all changed when Judy Schryver convinced Mike to train her at 5:15 am every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. Soon after Judy started, Henry Niemczyk (who also had a son training with Mike for baseball), started joining Judy at her 5:15 am workouts. No one realized that they were starting a culture that would soon become the premier training facility in Randolph, NJ. If it weren’t for Judy and Henry, Next Generation Training Center would have probably become just another gym that opened and closed within the first couple of years like many others have.
Fast forward 5 years and Next Generation Training Center has made a huge impact on the Randolph area. Helping to change hundreds of lives through providing a safe, fun, and family-friendly atmosphere to anyone who walked through the doors, NGTC has become a staple in Randolph. Regardless of what your goals are, you will find a home at NGTC. There have been many changes over the past 5 years, but one thing remains the same, you will never experience a gym that is like NGTC. Below is a message from the owner, Mike Ercolano.
“I am proud and humbled by everything that we have accomplished over the past 5 years. It still blows my mind that we have been open for 5 years now when it feels like it was just yesterday when I was training Judy and Henry at 5:15 am. Just like any other business, the ride has certainly been a rollercoaster, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world. The number of amazing people that I have gotten the opportunity to meet, work with, and cultivate relationships witch means everything to me. I truly am lost for words, as I never dreamed that we would be able to make such a positive impact on so many people’s lives. I just want to thank everyone who has supported us (and equally everyone who has hated on us lol) for the motivation to continue to improve the business, the culture, and the experience we provide. Next Generation Training Center is truly a positive place that continues to change lives every day. I am very proud to call it my home, and I am even more proud to call all of you my family.”
