Athletic Republic, the premier destination for individualized, sport-specific training backed by data & science, is set to open its newest location in Naples on May 7th. Located at 6425 Naples Boulevard, the innovative training center focuses on one’s metabolic, neurologic, and muscular systems in order for athletes to maximize their abilities and achieve their sports performance goals.

Athletic Republic Naples is owned and operated by local entrepreneur Carolyn Homberger, along with her husband Eric. After working for 15 years for a global financial technology company in Naples, Carolyn decided it was time to pursue a lifelong dream of business ownership in the community she loves. As an active distance runner and mother of three young athletes, Athletic Republic perfectly matched Carolyn’s business and personal interests.

“Athletic Republic represents a truly modern way to train blending technology, science-based protocols and good old hard work. Playing sports had a major influence in my life and I hope this center will serve as a place where athletes can hone their athleticism as well as goal setting and leadership skills,” said Carolyn. “It’s both humbling and exciting to bring a fitness concept like this to the Naples community that assists everyone in achieving their goals.”

As a way to introduce themselves to the community, Athletic Republic Naples will host a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, May 7th. With a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Chamber of Commerce taking place at 5:30pm Friday May 6th, the new training facility will offer residents and guests complementary training sessions, facility tours, and up to $100 off on Founding Memberships.

Founded by the late John Frappier in 1990, the innovative sports training concept was derived from practices used by the Soviet Union to expand the threshold of athletic performance. After being introduced to a multitude of physiological and training principles used by the Soviets in 1986 for the United States National Team during the Goodwill Games, John was inspired to bring these innovative ways to America. The Athletic Republic founder formed a team of sports medicine professionals and athletic trainers to implement these practices in the U.S. Today, Athletic Republic carries on the Frappier legacy by continuing to offer state-of-the-art training that unlocks the potential of any athlete, helping them perform at their best. The brand’s use of science-based protocols and specialized training equipment have helped nearly two million athletes of all ages achieve their goals, by improving their speed, power, agility, strength, and stability. Athletic Republic conducts functionality testing through their Plyo Press Power Quotient (3PQ), video running analysis on their famous AR High-Speed Running Treadmill, and full-body assessments to identify each athlete’s strengths and weaknesses to pinpoint where the emphasis of their training should focus on.

“Carolyn and her family are the quintessential example of what we look for in our partners at Athletic Republic,” said CEO Charlie Graves. “Carolyn not only has a strong business acumen, but a passion for athletics and the desire to provide unmatched customer service to their community. We’re extremely grateful to break into the Southwest Florida market with such an impressive franchise partner.”

Athletic Republic Naples is open six days a week (Mon-Sat) and available for private training and team training. For more information on Athletic Republic Naples, hours and memberships, please visit or call 239-429-0653.
