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

Class descriptions

T2R circuit (intermediate level)
This class focuses on strength training using high intensity interval training (HIIT) style workouts. The workouts are fast paced and will increase your heart rate. The main goal of the class is to offer an alternative form of aerobic training that mimics the same cardiovascular training effect experienced with running while also working on getting the body stronger and more resilient to injury. This is an intermediate level class. We recommend all participants have the ability to run or perform cardio exercise for at least 30 minutes without stopping.

T2R circuit for beginners (beginning level)
This class is designed for those who are new to Train 2 Run. Workouts will be structured similarly to the intermediate level circuit. It is recommended that participants work out (strength training or cardio) regularly for at least a month before the start of class. Class will be fast paced, you will get your heart rate up. The intensity of this class will be a slight step down from the intermediate circuit class described above.
