To our Athletic Republic Athletes and families, 

Governor Wolf announced Allegheny County will move into the Green Phase of re-opening, Friday, June 5th.

Athletic Republic Pittsburgh will safely open its doors to clients beginning Monday, June 8th!

Class updates:

We have spent this time apart improving upon current classes and adding a new, highly requested, class to the schedule: AR Strong! This means the strength portion of our Junior Speed class (formerly Junior Acceleration) will now be a separate class. Our coaches know athletes will get more out of strength training when done on its own versus after 60 minutes of acceleration training. 

AR Strong
We are all about taking athletes to the next level. Along an athlete's journey they are susceptible to injuries and that is what our strength program is all about – preparing athletes to be in the game throughout the season and not watching from the sidelines. We accomplish all of this using barbells, free weights, kettlebells, bands, boxes and plenty of other equipment! We focus on movement patterns, midline stability, and safety as athletes train with us.

AR Speed (formerly Acceleration)
Everyone wants to be fast. But in order to run fast you need to learn to run the right way! AR Speed is all about improving an athlete's running mechanics through stride length, stride frequency, knee drive, hip positioning and arm swing. Focusing on the running treadmill, our 4-way hip machine, and ground based mechanics, we help athletes produce much more power and efficiency when playing their sport.

AR Explosive (formerly Plyo)
AR Explosive classes are all about developing an athlete's body awareness, first-step quickness and proficiency when it comes to plyometrics. Through the use of our PlyoFloor, cords, the PlyoPress, and land agility work we are able to challenge and develop an athlete to be ready under any circumstances.
