The game of soccer has evolved over the last couple decades into a very athletic sport. Soccer players are faster, stronger, quicker, and more conditioned than they have ever been. More and more of a competitive advantage is not only going to those that work on their ball skills and play on the field, but also those players who work on becoming a better athlete. Soccer is a game of speed, power, ball control and agility. Soccer requires quick movements, short and long bursts of speed, and lasting endurance. At any age or level, soccer is physically demanding. By focusing on speed, agility, conditioning and power, Athletic Republic trainers give any soccer player the tools to be more successful on the field, regardless of position. Patented equipment and programs enable soccer athletes to mimic the multi-directional movements found in soccer, while raising lactic threshold for lasting endurance.

REDUCING THE RISK OF INJURY
“Avoidance of Soccer Injuries with Pre-Season Conditioning,” published in American Journal of Sports Medicine (Vol 28, No 5). This study involved 300 female athletes age 14 – 18 in a one-year study. 40 athletes completed Athletic Republic Performance Sports Training Protocols and the remainder did conventional ground based soccer training.
|Any Injury||Season Ending Injury|
|Athletic Republic Performance Sports Training||14.3%||2.3%|
|Conventional Ground Based Soccer Training||33.7%||5.4%|
Put another way, female soccer players who completed Pre-Season Conditioning with Athletic Republic reduced their risk of injury by more than 50% versus those who completed conventional ground based soccer training.
I trained at Athletic Republic before reporting to New Jersey to play for the Sky Blue FC in the Women’s Professional Soccer League. I also trained at Athletic Republic the summer before my Senior season at Texas A&M. Athletic Republic helped me so much to get ready for my senior season and the professional league. They focus on speed, agility, strength and conditioning which is every aspect you need for soccer. If it was a speed or agility day I would walk out of Athletic Republic feeling dead but loving every minute of it because I knew it would help maximize my potential. I loved working with all the sports performance coaches, each were very knowledgeable and knew how to push me in the correct manner. Athletic Republic has great equipment, programs and excellent coaches to help you become faster, quicker and stronger. All around Athletic Republic is a great training environment to work on your speed and agility but also have fun while doing it. I know I got faster, stronger and more fit just working out there for a couple months. I felt confident going into preseason knowing that Athletic Republic prepared me well for my season.

I went to the Athletic Republic training center in St. Louis to stay in shape during the off season and possibly gain some fitness, but what I received completely exceeded my expectations. After just one workout I knew that I had come to the right place. Every workout was conducted in a professional manner where my individual needs as a soccer player were met. In a little over six weeks the staff at Athletic Republic not only got me into great shape but they greatly improved my speed, quickness, strength, and agility. Working out at Athletic Republic has helped me realize my true potential as an athlete. Thanks for all your help!

My freshman year of high school I realized everybody was starting to catch up to me. I wanted to find the best training possible and found Frappier Acceleration training. It has the best speed workouts out there. I started my freshman year and did it all four years of high school. When I went to Texas A&M University on a soccer scholarship I knew I needed to continue. I had all of the amenities at Texas A&M but not the Frappier Acceleration Training. I found a place 1 ½ hours away and drove there three times a week throughout my summer all four years. After college I was picked up by St. Louis Athletica and moved to St. Louis. I looked for the Frappier Acceleration Training and I found the Acceleration program at Athletic Republic in Frontenac .
As a soccer player I needed that quickness over a longer period of time. The treadmill workouts would go faster than my body knew how and consistently working at a higher speed allowed me to get faster. The plyometrics worked on my quickness along with circuits pushing me physically. I was able to go faster and harder for longer periods of time. I was able to put everything I had into the workouts and it made the difference in my games. The staff at Athletic Republic is phenomenal and they know their stuff. They also know how to push you farther than you think is possible. Athletic Republic is THE place if you want get to the next level.
