Nonsolicitation in Consultant Agreement

A few years ago I signed an agreement with the following restrictive covenant (below), for occasional 1-day consulting assignments for Company X in New Jersey. Is there anything in the terms of this covenant that restrict me from subcontracting to a new Company Y, when Company Y's clients include some that I provided services on behalf of Company X?

"Agrees not to directly or indirectly solicit business from any organization, entity or person for whom trainer has performed services on behalf of Company X, except to promote additional services available from Company X."

This may well create a problem. I would have to have a better understanding of what your services are. On the other hand, they would have to sue you to collect on it.
