Help your athletes gain a step on their competition

Athletic Republic’s summer is focused on helping athletes gain a step on their competition. In addition to a training program that teaches the fundamentals of speed, AR centers have a collection of marketing resources they can utilize to promote summer training along with an agency to help them activate it.

John Brenkus joins Athletic Republic

One of those resources is the addition of John Brenkus to the Athletic Republic team. You’ll recognize John as the host of ESPN’s Sport Science, the NFL Network’s Soul and Science, and soon in our marketing, as he helps increase Athletic Republic’s public profile. Look for John to bring his unique perspective on athlete assessment and decades of sports science experience to a brand that has mastered how to transform human potential into human performance.

Rapid Expansion

Athletic Republic has opened five new training centers during the first four months of the year (just in time for the busy summer training season), and has five additional new centers set to open during the third and fourth quarters. The AR-HQ team is currently working with new franchise prospects to open locations in November and December to support winter training for spring sport athletes, endurance athletes preparing for their upcoming season, and adult athletes committed to keeping their New Year’s ‘Get Fit’ resolutions.

Speed is a Skill

Speed is a defining attribute of athleticism. No longer considered a genetic gift, speed is a skill that ultimately depends on how effectively an athlete puts force into the ground. By designating this as the ‘Summer of Speed,’ Athletic Republic is looking to help every athlete improve their first step, create separation from a defender, close a gap on an opponent, make a quicker cut, increase their endurance, and improve their top end speed.

Sports Performance Training Staff

Athletic Republic Training Centers have more than 500 performance trainers helping athletes develop a competitive advantage. The Performance Trainers are encouraged to complete Athletic Republic’s undergo three extensive certification levels in biomechanics, exercise physiology, sports nutrition, exercise science, and the practical adaptation of the training programs to meet each athlete’s goals by utilizing certification on our proprietary equipment, protocols and training solutions. Most of our trainers have either played or coached at the highest levels of their sport, gained professional certifications (CSCS, ACSM, NASM) and have graduate degrees in exercise science, biomechanics and athletic training. We pride ourselves on having the most qualified staff in the performance sports training industry.

CERTIFICATION LEVELS 1 AND 2 give our trainers a foundation in the key elements of exercise sciences that drive our sport-specific performance sports training programs protocols.

CERTIFICATION LEVEL 3 pulls the science, technology, equipment, business, coaching and performance sports training together for a 360 degree view of Athletic Republic training experience. Level 3 certification is recommended for all full-time trainers and is required for all training center Directors.
