BASEBALL / SOFTBALL

“It’s not enough anymore to say that you work hard, because everyone works hard.  You need to work smart. The work I did with Athletic Republic during the off-season is a combination of those two. It’s a great example of how today’s athletes should train.”

- Jim Thome, MLB

AT ATHLETIC REPUBLIC, WE CONCENTRATE ON ONLY ONE THING: BETTER ATHLETES.


Ever since we first started blending the science of physiology and biomechanics with sport-specific training more than 25 years ago, we’ve made it our singular quest to be the go-to place for serious athletes. We’ve developed a unique program to specifically train baseball players to improve their speed, power, agility and reactions so they can become not just better athletes, but better baseball athletes. Through our evidence-based training protocols and patented equipment, we improve an athlete’s hitting and throwing mechanics, first step quickness and flat-out speed and a players anticipation and reaction skills, We also provide exact neurological learning and coordination that improves a player's ability to hit, throw, catch, pitch and field.

SPEED, POWER AND AGILITY ARE THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE.


At any age, at any level, baseball is a physically and intellectually demanding sport. By focusing on speed power and agility we can give every baseball player the tools to be more successful on the field, regardless of their position.

SPEED: Baseball is made up of intense bursts of speed. Success or failure is tied directly to an athletes' ability to increase or decrease speed in just a few steps.

POWER: Hitting with explosive power is developed by improving rotational strength and stability. Pitching velocity is increased by strengthening the acceleration and deceleration muscles used for every throw.

AGILITY: Body control is essential for making a defensive play. An efficient player must be able to shuffle, sprint, step, reach, change direction, move backward and jump to successfully field a ball.
