Train 2 Run

When it comes to running, many people focus on running to train, rather than training to run. Train 2 Run (T2R), a Freeman Rehabilitation & Sports Center program, is a functional strength-training program that aims to teach experienced runners smarter and more efficient ways to prepare for running. The Train 2 Run program teaches you how to stay healthy and injury-free, so you can run longer and with greater success.


  • Reduce injury risk and improve resilience to overuse-related running injuries
  • Improve running performance
  • Promote a stronger, healthier local community of runners

How is class structured?
​Classes usually last approximately 75 minutes per session. During the first 15 minutes of class, participants perform a movement preparation warm-up and receive workout instructions. Workouts will last approximately 60 minutes. During workouts, participants will split into teams – each team will rotate through a cycle of boot-camp style strength circuits using a form of aerobic training called high intensity interval training. The sole focus of all classes is strength training; classes will not incorporate any running.

Who can participate?
All classes are open to the public. Due to the high-intensity nature of the class, we recommend that all participants have the ability to run, or perform some form of cardio exercise, for at least 30 minutes before starting the class. If you are new to running or want to learn about healthy ways to start running, we recommend you first try a run/walk program or enroll in a “Anyone Can Run” class to help you build a good fitness base.

When do classes start and how long do they last?
All T2R classes will meet for 8 consecutive weeks. Classes will start the week of October 19 and end the week of December 7. All classes take place at the Freeman Rehabilitation and Sports Center, located at 2206 East 32nd Street in Joplin, Missouri.
