Athletic Republic is not simply a place to work out. It's where you will become a better athlete. We're the premier destination for individualized, highly effective, sport-specific training that's like no other.
Science-based protocols

Science-Based Protocols

Athletic Republic was born out of the idea that there had to be a better, more effective way to train. Thirty years and over one million athletes later, we think we have the answers. We hold six patents and have developed 4000+ pages of proprietary speed and skill-specific training protocols that meet the demands of every sport and athlete. Athletic Republic training programs create faster, stronger, more explosive athletes who are able to play at game speed for longer and with fewer injuries.
Equipment & Technology

Equipment & Technology

At the heart of our programs are the proprietary equipment and software that make us the industry leader, delivering real results every time. Some, such as the PlyoFloor, are utterly unique, while others, like the Plyo Press Machine and Super Running Treadmill, are vast improvements on standard gym equipment. With the added integration of our cord technology, advanced video technology and proprietary software, athletes can see, feel, and track their progress.
Highly Qualified Trainers

Highly Qualified Trainers

We pride ourselves on having the best trainers in the business. Most of them have either played or coached at the highest levels of their sport, gained professional certifications (CSCS, ACSM, NASM), and/or have undergraduate or graduate degrees in exercise science, biomechanics, or athletic training. Regardless of their backgrounds, our trainers all share a passion for helping our athletes perform at their best.

The Athletic Republic Story

In 1986, exercise physiologist John Frappier traveled with the U. S. National Team to the Soviet Union as part of the Goodwill Games gymnastics delegation. During his visit, he participated in a sports science conference and was introduced to several physiological and training concepts the Soviets were using to push the thresholds of human performance. That experience inspired him to develop the original Acceleration Training programs, through careful research and input from a team of sports medicine professionals, athletic trainers, and elite coaches. This sports performance training program has evolved into a training system that has followed the same evidence-based approach that formed the foundation for Frappier's pioneering work. 

In 2006, former professional triathlete and entrepreneur Charlie Graves rebranded the Frappier Acceleration Network as Athletic Republic and began to expand into new markets around the U.S. and the world. The network currently consists of clinics and training centers applying our protocols and equipment, and continuing to inform the body of knowledge that is at the heart of the Athletic Republic system.
