AVERAGE PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS THROUGH ATHLETIC REPUBLIC TRAINING
Athletic Republic™ Acceleration Program
You know that basic strength and conditioning programs are important. But adding Athletic Republic Acceleration in the off-season can take athletes to the next level. Athletic Republic Acceleration is a six to eight week sport-specific speed and power training program that will enhance performance by focusing on agility, vertical jump, body mechanics, and sprint work. Our state of the art treadmills will assist in pushing you past your previous limits and to a new level of speed and performance. The training sessions are set up to be performed three times per week for four, six or eight week increments.
Athletic Republic™ Resistance Cord Programs
This specialized six week program is designed to increase your throwing velocity and to correct mechanics through the use of patented ThrowingCord™, HittingCord™, or KickingCord™ technology. This program meets for two sessions per week for six weeks.
Vertimax™ Vertical Jump Training
Having a few more inches on your vertical can mean elevating higher to hit that jump shot or finishing the spike instead of being blocked. This four, six or eight week program will focus on improving your explosive leaping ability through the use of Vertimax training, plyometrics and focused lower-body strengthening. Pre- and post- training measures will be recorded to gauge your improvements. This program meets for two sessions per week.
This individualized program is designed to address your personal fitness/athletic performance goals. Workouts are based on specific evaluation and testing that focuses on the individual strengths and weaknesses of each participant. Through the support and professional guidance of our Certified Athletic Trainers, you will improve your fitness level and learn how to train and exercise safely, while working toward improving your strength and overall fitness/performance. These personal training sessions are typically set up two to three times per week for six weeks.
ACL Risk-Reduction Program
While statistics show anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries to be one of the most frequently occurring injuries for female athletes, the majority of these injuries are from non-contact events. With proper evaluation and instruction in biomechanics (body movement) and strength training, your risk can be reduced. This six week program will assess areas of need and will train you three times per week focusing on proper landing techniques, body awareness and positioning, deceleration when cutting or stopping, and increase core and leg strength.
Athletic Republic™ ACL Bridge Program
The Carle Athletic Republic ACL Bridge Program bridges the gap between physical therapy discharge and functional/recreational independence. It is for individuals of all ages to help regain recreational independence. The program includes forward/backward running, jump training, agility/multi-directional movements and strengthening. There is a pretest/posttest evaluation and the program is two to three times per week for a total of 25 visits.
