THIS IS WHERE TENNIS ATHLETES BECOME TENNIS CHAMPIONS.
At Athletic Republic, we concentrate on only one thing: better athletes. Ever since we first started blending the science of physiology and biomechanics with sport-specific training about a quarter century ago, we’ve made it our sole objective to become the go-to place for serious athletes. Our tennis training program caters to the mix of aerobic and anaerobic endurance, explosive strength and power, and agility required for a tennis player to excel through repeated bouts of high-intensity activity.

SPEED, QUICKNESS, AGILITY AND POWER ARE THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE.
At any age, at any level, tennis is a physically and intellectually demanding sport. By focusing on speed, quickness and agility, we can give every tennis player the tools to be more successful on the court.
Speed: Our tennis training improves the speed of muscle contraction to allow the body to execute body movements at an accelerated pace.
Quickness and Agility: The speed and agility work performed on our patented Super Treadmill and Plyofloor elevates muscle coordination, footspeed, and movement precision to facilitate that next-level change of direction.
Hitting and Leg Power: On average, a 20% gain in peak force and power provides another level to a tennis athlete’s game. Our training programs create faster, stronger, more explosive tennis players who are able to maintain superior hitting power so that they have more shots in their arsenal whether on the baseline or approaching the net. Our 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.

THIS IS WHERE SWIMMERS BECOME CHAMPIONS.
At Athletic Republic, we concentrate on only one thing: better athletes. Ever since we first started blending the science of physiology and biomechanics with sport-specific training more than 27 years ago, we’ve made it our singular quest to be the go-to place for serious athletes. One of the latest additions to our training line-up is the development a dry-land program tailored specifically to swimmers to help them improve their speed, efficiency, explosive power and race day results.

PROPELLED BY POWER.
At any age, at any level of competition, swimming is one of the most physically and mentally demanding sports. By incorporating a pre-season and early season dry-land training program, the swimmer is able to supplement the high repetition, low-resistance work they complete in the pool.
Power: Accelerate faster, get off the wall quicker, and maintain top-end speed.
Stamina: Retain stroke mechanics under fatigue and increase the number of underwater kicks at each turn.
Strength: Build your core, back, and shoulder strength to make the most of every stroke.

RISE ABOVE THE COMPETITION.
Athletic Republic is staffed with a team of trainers certified in a unique combination of exercise science, sports training and athlete assessment technology. The Dry-Land Training program has been developed as a series of 90-minute sessions delivered in 5-week training blocks for younger age groups, High School swimmers and as a weekly addition to master swimmers and Triathletes off-season and pre-season work-outs.

At Athletic Republic, we concentrate on only one thing: better athletes. Ever since we first started blending the science of physiology and biomechanics with sport-specific training more than 25 years ago, we’ve made it our singular quest to be the go-to place for serious athletes. We’ve developed a unique program to specifically train softball players to improve their speed, power, agility and reactions so they can become not just better athletes, but better softball athletes. Through our evidence-based training protocols and patented equipment, we improve an athlete’s hitting and throwing mechanics, first step quickness and flat-out speed and a player’s anticipation and reaction skills. We also provide exact neurological learning and coordination that improves a player’s ability to hit, throw, catch, pitch and field.

POWER, ACCELERATION AND AGILITY ARE THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE.
At any age, at any level, softball is a physically and intellectually demanding sport. By focusing on speed, power and agility, we can give every softball player the tools to be more successful on the field, regardless of their position.
Speed: Softball is made up of intense bursts of speed. Success or failure is tied directly to an athlete’s ability to increase or decrease speed in just a few steps.
Power: Hitting with explosive power is developed by improving rotational strength and stability. Pitching velocity is increased by strengthening the acceleration and deceleration muscles used for every throw.
Agility: Body control is essential for making a defensive play. An efficient player must be able to shuffle, sprint, reach, change direction, move backward and jump to successfully field a ball.

POWER, ACCELERATION AND AGILITY ARE THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE.
At any age, at any level, soccer is a physically and intellectually demanding sport. By focusing on acceleration, agility and power, we can give every defender, midfielder, forward and goalkeeper the tools to be more successful on game day.
Acceleration: Every soccer game is made up of hundreds of short bursts of speed. Success is often defined by an athletes’ ability to increase or decrease speed in just a few steps.
Agility: Balance, coordination and stability are essential for nearly every movement with or without the ball. A complete player must be able to perform every technique at top speed, while still maintaining control and composure.
Power: Change of speed and change of direction are two of the most important soccer skills. By definition, an athlete’s ability to generate power determines how fast his movement occurs.
