Athletic Republic is the nation's leading performance training program 130 locations nationwide. Our sports specific speed, agility and strength training is designed to make your child a better athlete so he/she can increase his/her on-field/on-court production and performance.
An Athletic Republic Training Center has opened at the House of Sports. Sports specific, small group team and private training is offered throughout the day. Free trials are available and encouraged.
Not long ago, on-field/on-court talent determined greatness. While sports specific skills are still critical, in today's ultra-competitive environment, what separates the good from the great is a player's general athletism. It is their speed, agility and strength that gives them the unique ability to single handedly change the game in an eye-pooing, jaw dropping manner.
When being good is not good enough and greatness beckons, Athletic Republic, one of the nation's leading performance training programs, provides the roadmap for success. At the intersection of sports, technology and science, Athletic Republic training can help you unlock your athletic potential and achieve things on the field/court that you never dreamed possible.
Through more than 20 years of research, testing, training and improving athletes, Athletic Republic has a methodology that maximizes every athlete's potential. At the heart of our program is the proprietary equipment and scientific based protocols that help athletes learn to move better, get faster stronger, more powerful and in the best condition possible for their specific sport. Our proprietary, sport-specific equipment includes the following:
Speed Treadmills: If you want to get faster and more explosive on the field or court, you have to teach your body to move faster than it knows how. The Athletic Republic Super Running Treadmill (RTM) ramps up from 0-28 mph in less than 3 seconds. Using our sport-specific protocols, the RTM safely pushes athletes beyond their ground-based training limits by forcing them to work harder and run more efficiently to reach peak speeds and maintain them for longer durations.
Hockey Treadmills: The Athletic Republic Hockey Treadmill (HTM); with its patented, specially lubricated, ice-like surface, trains hockey players to become more powerful and efficient skaters. Athletes train in their skates. The HTM tilts to a 32% grade and reaches speeds up to 16 mph. . Scientific research proves that incline treadmill skating helps athletes produce more power on each stride versus rink skating.
Plyo Floor: The Athletic Republic Plyo Floor (PF) is a cushioned wood surface with exclusive patterns and quick lock resistance cord hooks to maximize quickness and explosiveness while improving dynamic stability, essential for improving movement skills and overall athleticism. This floor can dramatically improve explosive power, hip strength, balance and dynamic stability.
Plyo Press Machine: The Athletic Republic Plyo Press Machine (PPM) improves leg strength and explosive power. The footplate angle puts the athlete in an athletic position to produce force through the balls of his/her feet - not the heels like a standard squat exercise. Versus squats and hip sleds, the PPM is a safer and more effective way to train lower body explosive strength and power.
Pro Multi-Hip: The Athletic Republic Pro Multi-Hip (PMH) improves key abdominal and hip muscle strength essential for improved performance. Resistance settings can be adjusted from less than 15 pounds for lateral movement patterns to 375 pounds (highest in the industry) for dynamic power movements. The PMH is versatile enough to accommodate athletes from 5 feet to 7 feet tall, who are both healthy and in rehabilitation for injury.
When these sophisticated tools are added together with our patented testing technologies and standard performance/weight training equipment such as our custom designed racks and, our athletes are able to become better athletes and separate themselves from the pack.
