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. We take 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.
“Athletic Republic training gave me a great edge. It moved everything forward: my athleticism, competition and football skills. It was the answer I was looking for. My goal was to play in the NFL and the Athletic Republic Training Program helped me to reach it.”
-Shaun Alexander, NFL
“I need to get on your treadmill (the Athletic Republic Super Treadmill) to help me get my feet turning over to run my fastest in the 40 yard dash.”
-Toby Gerhart, Preparing for 2010 NFL Draft
“I’ve gone to other training facilities just to lift weights, but those facilities aren’t really places for athletes; the atmosphere isn’t an athlete atmosphere. But with Athletic Republic Training – every component – that’s for athletes.”
-Paris Lenon, NFL
“What the Athletic Republic program does with its focus on quickness and speed is fill in the training need for a player in the NFL.”
-Logan Mankins, NFL
“Training with the equipment and protocols at Athletic Republic really helped me improve my speed and first-step explosiveness.”
Darren McFadden, NFL
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.
Athletic Republic gives athletes a competitive advantage. Our proprietary equipment, certified trainers and proven training protocols create an environment that maximizes athletic potential. Super Running Treadmill is a proven training tool that safely takes the athlete beyond what he/she can do on the ground. The feedback provided verbally by Athletic Republic certified trainers and visually through mirrors and video, contributes to an improved stride and greater running efficiency in just a few weeks.
Average Performance Improvements through Athletic Republic training:
0.2 – 0.4 seconds in 40 yards which equals 6 – 10 feet of separation;
2 – 4 inches of vertical jump height;
5 – 8 inches in standing long jump distance;
5 mph in throwing velocity;
50% improvement in recovery ability;
20% gain in peak force and power;
33% increase in foot speed; and
Significant improvements in running stride efficiency.

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.
