RANDOLPH, NJ –– Athletic Republic-Randolph re-opened its doors this past Sunday, April 17, 2016, with an invigorated approach to performance sports training.

“Re-opening Athletic Republic – Randolph under new ownership provides an incredible opportunity to provide the community’s athletes with the most proven sports performance program in existence,” stated Athletic Republic CEO, Charlie Graves.

We recognize that the local community is one that possesses a passion for sport and athlete development and that this new ownership group is the one it truly deserves to bring about a new age of training at Athletic Republic – Randolph.”
“We believe in the Athletic Republic System and how it will create the opportunity for local athletes to improve their speed, power, agility, stamina and sport-specific skills,” new owners Salar Ghahary and Paul LoVerde stated. We have also partnered with Next Generation Fitness to expand our training services to include the dedicated adult looking to move better, get stronger, lose weight and stay healthier.”
