Through nearly three decades 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 software that make us the industry leader, delivering real results every time. With the added integration of our cord technology, advanced video technology and proprietary software, athletes can see, hear, feel and track their progress.
If you want to gain speed and explosiveness on the field or court, you have to teach your body how to move faster. The Athletic Republic Super Running Treadmill (RTM) ramps up from 0-28 mph in less than three seconds. Standard treadmills cannot produce the speed or stability the RTM provides. 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. With inclines up to 40%, incline running on the RTM forces athletes to run with the same form of an Olympic sprinter: high knee-drive, quick recovery, a stable mid-section, and toes-up ground contact to minimize braking and maximize propulsion.
The Athletic Republic Hockey Treadmill’s patented, specially lubricated ice-like surface trains hockey players to become more powerful and efficient skaters. The HTM tilts to a 32% grade and reaches speeds up to 16 mph. Athletes training in their own skates can see themselves in a mirror and the trainer can stand next to them to coach improved skating mechanics. Research proves that incline treadmill skating helps athletes produce more power on each stride versus rink skating. After just one Acceleration Hockey Training Program of 22-26 sessions over 6-8 weeks, athletes enhance their breakaway speed, develop quicker cuts, improve their power in the first three strides and gain overall condi-tioning. Translated to the ice, it all adds up to more shots on goal.
The Athletic Republic Plyo Press machine’s unique design allows athletes to take explosive power training to a higher level. The footplate angle puts you in an athletic position to produce force through the balls of your feet, not the heels like a standard squat exercise. You compete in an athletic position, you need to train in those positions. The sled supports your low back and reinforces proper mechanics when lifting heavy weights or doing explosive jumps. Using an exclusive weight loading pattern, the PPM provides variable resistance that optimizes the weight load based on how the body works. The PPM is a safer and more effective way than squats and hip sleds, t to train lower body explosive strength and power.
The Athletic Republic Plyo Floor (PF) is a cushioned wood surface with exclusive patterns designed to maximize quickness and explosiveness while improving dynamic stability, essential for improving movement skills and overall athleticism. We employ tools like the AccuPower force platform to measure power output and stability during single leg squats, jumps, and hops. Coupled with resistance cords and soft foam hurdles, this floor can dramatically improve explosive power, hip strength, balance and dynamic stability.
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 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.
Athletic Republic Conditioning Cords provide controlled resistance while allowing athletes to perform at game-speed velocities, greatly improving sport-specific power for hitting, throwing, running, shooting, spiking, serving, kicking, and/or jumping. Our patented SprintCords, KickingCords, ThrowingCords, PowerCords, Hitting Harness, and Warm-up Cords provide resistance without changing or affecting proper mechanics. When the conditioning cords come off, athletes produce more power than ever before. All cords come in Pro and Varsity resistance levels. Interested in purchasing the Athletic Republic Warm Up Cord?

Athletic Republic's proprietary technologies are next-generation training. Measuring explosive power, dynamic stability and symmetry, we analyze an athlete's reports against a central database called AIMS to provide a percentile ranking against the average produced by athletes throughout the network. Combined with advanced video technology, athletes see how they match up with their peers as well as their progress from the first training session to the last. The result is a clear view of an athlete's improvement over time and ranking among his/her athletic peers.
Over 80% of people are visual learners. This is why Athletic Republic incorporates Dartfish ProSuite video feedback into training protocols. It is essential to accelerating the process of learning sports skills and optimizing an athlete's training progress. Athletic Republic Performance Trainers use Dartfish to assist in athlete assessments and again during training to help fine-tune technique. Video feedback in the training area provides athletes instant insights on technical form and efficiency. Video review includes varying speeds or even frame-by-frame slow motion that reveals more than the human eye can see. This gives both the athlete and trainer a chance to make subtle, yet important adjustments to form and mechanics.
The Athletic Republic Plyo Press Power Quotient (3PQ) provides a quick and accurate way to functionally test lower body power output. 3PQ measures the force an athlete exerts on a custom-built 3D force platform mounted to the Plyo Press. This allows trainers to accurately assess the lower body power output during movements specific to most sports. Athletic Republic performance trainers can measure an athlete's force and power output during single or both leg presses, jumps, or even isometrically at a wide range of angles. Our proprietary 3PQ testing software analyzes the test results to compare the athlete's overall power, symmetry between legs, and results against their peers in the AIMS database, as well as tracking progress throughout training.
