The Sims' returned to Park City– where Barry had graduated from PC High - after 20 years in the Bay area. "With our two girls, we realized it was time to go home for good," Barry says. "We wanted them to have the opportunities I had - amazing skiing and endless outdoor recreation."
Shae had connections to Athletic Republic through her rehab background, and Barry says his road to the NFL was assisted by a performance improvement program called “Acceleration,” now used system-wide at the company. The couple took on the PC franchise in 2020. "Athletic Republic was a perfect match for us," Barry says. "We are motivated by inspiring others and offering the same level of performance training collegiate, and professional athletes get."
They also love getting young people into what Barry calls "Park City shape" by supporting the Youth Sports Alliance 'Activ8' program, Weilenmann Charter School's 'Adventure PE', the Park City Soccer Club and Passing League, and the PCHS Mountain Bike Team.
We're thrilled Shea and Barry brought their passion for overcoming obstacles and helping others home to Park City. Stop by with your young athletes. Just being around them will get you motivated!
