The Rep Mission
Making. Fitness. Accessible. For. All. Youth
Hi, I’m Callen McGibbon,
I’ve been a strength coach for nearly 20 years. Throughout my practice, I’ve encountered fitness levels across the board. From youth athletes picking up their first weight to middle-aged individuals looking to stay in shape. As an fitness enthusiast, I have always tried to push boundaries and make myself as knowledgeable as possible when it comes to human performance.
In 2017, I took a leap into new territory by creating REPerformance. Behind the idea was the goal to make more youth physically fit by empowering them with hands on experience. What I evaluated through my years of coaching was that applying a “workout” lifestyle isn’t overtly part of the youth experience. There’s a gap in how we present being healthy.
The mission isn’t necessarily to optimize athletic performance, although, I treat every client with the same framework for success. At the core, I want to provide access to this method and develop healthier humans for the long term. By instituting healthy active living at the youngest possible age, we can provide the pathway to long term success in fitness.
I am proud to have worked with high level athletes and been apart of their journey. My vision is to take that approach and lend a hand to anyone who needs it. If I can set one kid on the path to becoming physically fit, that wouldn’t have otherwise, this REPerformance experience would have all been worth it!
Hi, I’m Nick Foligno.
As the proud co-founder of REP and a direct result of the REP program, I can personally attest to the program’s value and effectiveness. Working with Callen McGibbon for the past 15 years, the REP mission has guided me to achieve my ultimate goal of becoming an elite athlete and playing in the NHL. I was fortunate enough to realize my talent and capabilities at a young age and by prioritizing my fitness , I continued to excel in my profession.
In a world where health and vitality are met with incredible importance, I want today’s youth to have the same opportunities, education and resources I had when I was young, and still continue to have through the program today. Even after 13 years playing in the NHL, my physical fitness has pushed to new levels.
As a father of three, I know how important it is to teach healthy habits, and encourage physical fitness in a way that is engaging to young minds. Teaching them the proper ways to learn these things at a young age helps to shape and guide their behaviors and choices as they grow older. I’m proud of what REPerformance can do, and I look forward to helping young athletes develop physically and mentally by making fitness more accessible through our unique offerings.
Whether the goal is to introduce workouts to beginners or progressing athletes to the next level, our platform is fit for everyone!
REPerformance is built on the framework of what a fitness test result can provide to us. A way of trying new things, a way to explore our limits, ultimately, a way to learn. A fitness test is and should remain step 1 in designing the path to improvement for everyone.
Human beings have found new and creative ways to push into uncharted methods of progression. Ultimately, the core principle to establishing a baseline is through facilitating a test.Those in the education or coaching space possess the ability to run and organize as such.
We’ve taken the 1 on 1 strength coach methodology and have equipped teachers and coaches with a platform to consistently measure how your students and athletes are progressing in a group setting. With an automated workout generator, there’s no excuse to leave kids without the knowledge. Just think back to the experience in sport or gym class, had the opportunity to implement a workout been granted, how would your interpretation of fitness be shaped?
