Our sport-specific, individualized programming is designed specifically for athletes preparing for the upcoming season, gaining an advantage in the off-season and keeping their skills sharp during the season. Our programs make athletes faster, stronger and more agile than they ever thought possible. 

We have small group classes in both land sports (Acceleration) and hockey.  We teach the fundamentals of sports.  When did anyone actually teach us how to run?  When we were little they just told us to run - and run fast!  Today’s technology allows us to teach the proper mechanics of running.  Our super running treadmills are not your regular treadmills!  They go up to 28 miles per hour and up to a 40% incline.  The Dartfish technology we use allows the coach and the athlete to break down the runs into individual strides looking at foot strike and knee drive - teaching the athlete how to improve.

We give each athlete a demo of our program.  The demo allows the athlete and the parents/guardian the chance to watch first hand how our program and our equipment work.  The coach will evaluate the athlete to ensure they are ready to jump into the appropriate class.  

We baseline our athletes when they sign up for classes so we have a good starting point - and as they progress through our program, we can show the athlete and the parent/guardian and coaches how they are improving.

No matter what sport, whether you are trying to make the team or going off to a D1 school to play your sport - we have a training program that is right for you!

Hockey Training

Have a hockey player?  Skating is the foundation of hockey. Our hockey classes are designed to get the most speed and efficiency out of every skate stride. We use Dartfish video technology to record the athlete’s skates, which allows the coach and the athlete to break each movement down, stride by stride - showing the athlete exactly how they can improve.

It takes proper skating mechanics, explosive speed, quickness and balance to consistently become a top player. This is why hundreds of past and present professional hockey players have trained at Athletic Republic - a proud partner with both USA Hockey and Hockey East.

Strength/Weight Training 

Weight training programs for athletes

Our weight training program is designed specifically for each athlete’s sport, training age, gender, and imbalances.  The foundation of our program is to build a more injury resistant athlete.  As a result, we spend a lot of time developing decelerating musculature and healthy joints such as hips, knees and shoulders.  Additional considerations include: energy systems, movement patterns, primary as well as secondary movers, hypertrophy, strength, power, and endurance.  We use everything from free weights and kettle bells to bands and boxes.  This is not your local sweat shop.  Our athletes are under the watchful eye of an instructor to ensure they are being taught the right way to push themselves.

Plyo Floor

Plyometric floor training, Plyo training for athletes

One of the essential parts to training for any sport is the importance of footwork. Our facility comes equipped with a specialized Athletic Republic high intensity Plyometric Floor. No other training facility can call this unique piece of equipment their own. 

The Plyo Floor is a cushioned floor that maximizes quickness and explosiveness while improving dynamic stability. This floor is a potent development tool for dramatically improving powerful movement, expanding your movement base and developing dynamic stability. 

The Athletic Republic Plyo Floor (PF) also utilizes quick lock resistance cord hooks to maximize quickness and explosiveness while improving dynamic stability, essential for improving movement skills and overall athleticism.

The dynamic of this floor allows our trainers to gauge just how far your range of movement can go as well as your balance, speed and footwork ability. Each session on the Plyo Floor is modified to fit your specific need and skill level. From football to soccer the plyo floor is the perfect footwork improvement tool for any athlete in or out of season.
