Athletic Republic Gears Up To Expand Their Training Services Into New Markets

August 28, 2017 // // Sports training pioneer Athletic Republic announced today a partnership with WBC Group, LLC one of the nation’s largest suppliers of fitness, health, and wellness products. The affiliation with WBC Companies MeyerDC, MeyerPT, and Elivate will provide Athletic Republic franchises with centralized supply and management for the fitness products. In addition to a more streamlined product selection and fulfillment process, the new relationship will also serve as a conduit to introduce Athletic Republic’s new training clinic format to Physical Therapy and Chiropractic clinics interested in extending sports training to athletes as part of preventative or rehabilitative services.

For the past 27 years, Athletic Republic has offered competitive athletes of all ages complete assessment, performance training, and conditioning programs that are unlike any other sports training system. A recent addition to the training services line-up now includes an ACL Bridge program, which bridges the time between post-op physical therapy and the conditioning required to return to sport. “The ACL Bridge program is a big component of the training services being offered through our new training clinic format and we’re excited to bring our offering to the Physical Therapy and Chiropractic communities through our partnership with WBC Group,” stated Athletic Republic CEO, Charlie Graves.

As a family-owned business, WBC Group is committed to helping their customers, partners, and community build their business and live a healthier life. “Across our business segments, we began to recognize a growing trend where our clinic operators are extending their therapy practices with sports training”, stated WBC Vice President Steven Copperman. “We felt that Athletic Republic’s documented expertise, flexible physical format, and science-based approach to helping each athlete achieve their goals was the right fit for our Physical Therapy and Chiropractic customers looking to expand their services.”
