TRAINING CENTER formats

Athletic Republic offers franchise operators two training formats. The first is the TRAINING CENTER, which utilizes the Athletic Republic training system to develop athlete's speed, power, agility, and stamina. The second is the TRAINING CLINIC, which has been created for the Physical Therapy or Chiropractic Clinic operator interested in expanding their services with performance sports training, delivering our ACL Bridge Program, and utilizing Athletic Republic's proprietary equipment to improve and extend the overall athlete recovery experience with the clinic.

The TRAINING CENTER is available as a co-located or free-standing facility:

  • Co-Location: A Co-Located Training Center is located within another larger facility (typically with 1,800 - 4,500 sq.ft. of dedicated space), such as a Sports Medicine Hospital, Physical Therapy Clinic, SportsPlex, Ice Rink Complex, Health Club or similar facility, and has a protected territory with less than 5,000 potential athletes*.
  • Free Standing: A Free-Standing Training Center is located as a stand-alone business in a strip retail center, office warehouse, mixed commercial, or similar location (typically 2,400 - 6,000 sq.ft.) and may offer, or rent space within the training center to complimentary services. These could include Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Services, Cryotherapy, Sports Team Offices, Sports Nutrition Counseling, Sports Psychology, Juice Bar, Personal Trainers, Turf / Court / Cage Rental, or other related businesses and has a protected territory with less than 10,000 potential athletes*.

    * Even though Athletic Republic centers serve adult athletes, the potential athletes within a protected territory is defined as 30% of all Middle School, Junior High, and High School students enrolled in schools within the exclusive Trade Market.


The TRAINING CLINIC format was created for the Physical Therapy Clinic or Sport Medicine Facility operator interested in extending patient care and recovery an additional 6 - 12 weeks by introducing sports performance training to their practices. Athletic Republic offers Training Clinics the right to purchase its PlyoPress with Forceplate (3PQ), MultiHip machine, Pro Implosion, Cords, and Balance Devices, along with the advanced assessment and workflow resources to expand their service offering to include:

  • Athletic Republic's ACL / Lower Extremity Bridge Program that 'bridges' the training gap between when insurance supported therapy is completed and when the athlete is ready to return to competition.
  • Strength and movement skill training protocols for advancing an athlete's recovery and development.
  • Dynamic warm-up, exercise recovery, and ground-based training protocols and equipment for on-field, on-court or on-site training by the clinic's Athletic Trainer in the clinic and at the schools and clubs.

    A Trade Market is limited to the physical address of a Physical Therapy Clinic or Sports Medicine Facility. There is no protected territory for an Athletic Republic Training Clinic.      

site selection

Athletic Republic training centers draw 80% of its customers from a 20-minute or 10-mile radius around the facility. The Trade Market is the exclusive geography and protected territory of the franchise which may be larger or smaller than the 10-mile radius depending upon market conditions, drive times, and the center's programming. Considerations for site selection include:

CONVENIENCE: With half of the athletes participating in the Acceleration program being chauffeured by their parents, center convenience, accessibility, and proximity to their other weekly shopping / stopping locations they frequent are incredibly important. Choosing a training center location within the 5-minute 'drop and then shop' radius allows the parent to be efficient with their time by accomplishing weekly shopping tasks, while the athlete completes their 90-minute training session. 

SPORTS CENTER: A Co-Location Center inside a SportsPlex or Rink complex should be accessible near the front entry of the facility, so athletes playing sports not offered at the SportsPlex have easy access to the training center.

VISIBILITY: Free-standing locations do not have to be on a main street, but the address must be easily found with GPS and feature exterior signage visible from the roadway.

PROXIMITY: Selecting a site that has more than 10 High Schools within a 10-mile radius provides the center with access to a population of approximately 5,000 student-athletes to serve.  


training center size (Square Footage)

The size of the training center depends entirely on the desired training capacity, the athlete through-put model (which is a combination of space and the amount of training equipment), the training programs being offered, and the complimentary services the center plans to support with track, turf, court, batting cages, studio space, meeting rooms, private treatment, and other dedicated areas. By determining the number of athletes (or teams) the center plans to train during peak hours, the desired capacity and through-put may be calculated to verify the training center's square footage requirements.  

Additional space should be allocated to the reception / waiting area, office(s), and bathrooms (if not available in the building). Other considerations in the space selection process include; a well-lit parking lot with sufficient parking spaces, natural light, ventilations / air conditioning, and ceiling height (at least 12').

 

2,000 square feet training space has a capacity for training 20 athletes every 90-minutes

ATHLETIC REPUBLIC FRANCHISE TRAINING MODELS

Speed, power, agility, and stamina are developed based on sport-specific protocols using movement drills and the specialized equipment in the training center. Our training programs are constructed to help each athlete achieve their goals.

Training centers may select / combine any or all of the Athletic Republic Training Programs to balance daily center traffic, training session through-put, and seasonal sports schedules. The operator will select the sports the center team will train and the combination of our specialized equipment and advanced training tools necessary to develop athletes with our training system.

acceleration TRAINING

Our legacy program, refined for the athlete who is dedicated to improving their speed, power, agility, and stamina to gain a competitive advantage. The Multi-Sport training programs feature our Super Running Treadmills for developing speed; Plyometrics for improving movement skills, foot speed, change in direction and stability; Strength work for explosive speed, injury prevention, and translating power; and sport-specific skills designed to help an athlete move better and more efficiently during competition.

The majority of student-athletes we train with this system participate in football, baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, cross-country, swimming, tennis, wrestling, and track & field. Other sports are also supported by adapting
Acceleration Training protocols to the specific demands of the sport.


HOCKEY TRAINING

Our Hockey training programs have been constructed for individuals and teams for off-ice conditioning. Using a combination of cutting edge technology like our Hockey Treadmill, or utilizing hockey powercords to facilitate optimal nerve and muscular stimulus, our hockey athletes come away with significant improvements in skating efficiency, coupled with improved puck-handling and shooting movements. 

Players may be trained with the Multi-Sport configuration only, but will receive a greater benefit in their skating mechanics and efficiency if combined with the Hockey Treadmill.


ENDURANCe TRAINING

The program is defined by speed, strength, and stability to help the runner, cyclist, and triathlete achieve their personal best and stay healthy as the training volume and intensity increases. The program begins with an athlete assessment to determine an athlete's strengths and opportunities for improvement, taking in consideration weekly workout volume, competitive goals, and overuse injuries. 

Recovery and mobility elements are also incorporated to help the athlete better prepare for their next work-out.


AR-FIT

AR-FIT is a high-intensity, interval training program for the active adult who is committed to staying healthy and being better prepared to participate in their sport of choice. Structured as an hour-long work-out, AR-FIT combines a wide range of movement velocities with a variety of loads to safely expose muscles to a training program that will raise an athlete's fitness threshold.

Each small group work-out begins with a dynamic warm-up to elevate heart-rate, engage primary muscle groups, and introduce motion to challenge each athlete's movement mechanics. The interval training changes daily and each work-out concludes with a few minutes of mobility training that will initiate the recovery process and improve the range of motion.   


Return 2 Play

The ACL Bridge Program 'bridges' the gap between the completion of Post-Op Physical Therapy and an athlete regaining functional independence required to return to sport.

The Concussion Recovery Program is for the Sports Trainer, Physical Therapist, and Medical professional interested in a disciplined and documented approach that monitors and measures an athlete's progress to safely return them to competition.
