Energy is stored in matter.

Let's say you are playing Baseball. The ball is coming at you at 20 miles-per-hour. Smacking the ball with an average swing, you knock it about 200 yards.

If the ball thrown is going 50 miles-per-hour, and you smack it the same way, it will go farther. This is due to the stored energy between the two objects.
