Aaron Stecker started his football career as a high school standout in Ashwaubenon, WI. Stecker began his college career at Wisconsin in 1995. He played two years there, recording three 100-yard games, a 100-yard kick return for a touchdown, and a 63-yard punt return for a touchdown. In 1997 he transferred to Western Illinois. During the 1997 season, Stecker recorded 2,293 rushing yards en route to winning the Gateway Football Conference player of the year award. Stecker would finish his career at Western Illinois as the school's all-time leading rusher, with 3,799 yards in just two seasons (that record has since been broken). After college he was signed by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent in 1999. Stecker has played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints. He earned a Super Bowl ring with the Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII. In 2007 he recorded just under 1,000 all purpose yards in only 7 starts at running back. He is now with the Atlanta Falcons in his 11th year in the NFL. Aaron trains at Athletic Republic Madison in the off-season.
"I have always been able to push myself to work hard, and make myself a better athlete/baseball player. I thrive on working harder then the next guy, but I have not always had the resources or the knowledge to give me that edge to elevate me above the rest. Since I started working out at Athletic Republic, I feel that I have found that edge. I can honestly say that after only three months of training, I am in the best shape of my life and feel confident that I can take my baseball career to the next level. I can only imagine where I could be right now if I found Athletic Republic at a younger age."

"Acceleration Training gave me a great edge. It moved everything forward: my athleticism, competition and football skills. It was the answer I was looking for. My goal was to play in the NFL, and the Acceleration Training program helped me reach it."
Drafted by the Seattle Seahawks, Alexander has performed mightily for the team, becoming one of the highest paid running backs in the game. Stats for 2006 include 896 yards rushing on 252 attempts and seven rushing touchdowns in ten games. In December 2006 he broke Barry Sanders record for most consecutive games with a ten or more yard run. He trained with Tekulve Acceleration, pushing himself in repeat sprints on the Super Treadmill at 22 – 23 miles per hour. His goal was to make it look easy, because that makes defensive backs relax.
"Coming into pre-season, I feel more prepared. I can really feel the difference in my quickness and speed."
Burch played college soccer first at the University of Evansville for three seasons before moving on to the University of Maryland’s NCAA-winning squad. He scored the game-winning goal in the championship against New Mexico. Joining Major League Soccer, Burch started with the Los Angeles Galaxy, was traded to the Columbus Crew and now plays for MLS power team DC United. Burch focuses on greater speed and improved foot skills through repeat incline runs on the Super Treadmill and wide-leg and single-leg drills on the Plyo Floor. He trains at Tekulve Acceleration in Cincinnati, Ohio, a proud member of Athletic Republic.
"The Hockey Treadmill was a lot harder than I expected, but my skating definitely improved. All the guys who used it really benefited. After every program was completed, there was improvement out on the ice."
Moulson played at Cornell, training at their Lynah Rink facility. After college, he went first to the Pittsburgh Penguins, but was acquired as a free agent in 2006 by the Los Angeles Kings. He now plays left wing for the Manchester Monarchs. While at Cornell, Moulson trained on the Hockey Treadmill, utilizing fast twitch muscles to improve the explosiveness of his starts on the ice and up his speed.
"I worked hard, and Dan really pushed me to my limits, but I can’t say I would have made it without the training. Having someone there to push you and give you motivation is very helpful . . . We’re a good match."
Dorsey credits former coach Dan O’Donnell of Athletic Republic partner Nutriformance Acceleration in Chesterfield, Missouri, with helping him hone his 40-yard sprint time. After three weeks of controlled workouts featuring the Super Treadmill, Dorsey went from a 4.59-second personal best to 4.38, good enough to attract the big teams.
"It has really helped me; they do such a good job of making you stronger."
