Athletic Republic training makes athletes
faster on the football field. Our football speed-training program focuses on
improving speed and fundamental movement skills, developing explosive power to
deliver a blow or gain a first step, and conditioning to ensure the athlete
performs as well in the fourth quarter as the first.
Training Centers provide year-round football training for both teams and
individual players. Every program is designed by position so athletes can
focus on the specific keys to their game. From in-season practice and games; to
post-season speed, power and agility development; to spring practice, combines
and/or competition in other sports; to pre-season prep for two-a-days, Athletic
Republic represents the best in performance sports training and athlete
Ever since founder and
exercise physiologist John Frappier first worked with All Pro NFL Football
Players Tim Krumrie and Anthony Munoz of the Cincinnati Bengals nearly 20 years
ago, our performance sports training centers have been the go-to place for
serious football players. More than 500 NFL players including current greats
like LaMarr Woodley, Darren McFadden, Corey Graham and Paris Lenon have used
our science-based, position-specific sports training protocols and proprietary
equipment to improve their speed, power, agility and playmaking skills.
The structure of an individual’s football-training program starts with the athlete’s physical development. Football training for pre-pubescent athletes focuses on developing coordination, agility and speed since muscle mass develops later in a young athlete’s life. The chart above shows how the amount of training time spent on movement skills is much greater for younger athletes, and as the athletes mature and the level of competition increases, training focuses more on the development of power/strength and running efficiency. Professional players spend the largest portion of time on power/strength development, but still spend time working on movement skills and running efficiency.
football training far beyond the standard weight room, to a place where
ground-breaking assessment tools, integrated video and performance management software
provide a rock-solid framework for developing and evaluating the capabilities
of football players from youth to pro.
