What I really liked about the Athletic Republic training programs is that they test you both before and after each level so you know where you stand. The people are also very good about tailoring the program to meet your needs. Their [Super] Treadmill program got me into the best shape possible. It was a great challenge every time because they push you to the limit. If you’re in good shape, you are not going to get tired during practices and games, which means you can take more ground balls and hits and really step your game up to the next level.
