tread HAPPY is locally owned and the only fitness studio of its kind offering treadmill-based group fitness classes in Charlottesville and central Virginia. The custom-designed studio at 103 8th St NW offers six classes in all; depending on the class, participants alternate between interval running/jogging/walking on the treadmill and dynamic body-weight exercises (think squats, push-ups, burpees) and/or other activities (yoga, Pilates) to burn calories, increase endurance, improve flexibility, and develop core strength and stability. Participants in each and every class are in total control to set the intensity and pace on their treadmill.
Tread’s team of experienced running coaches will also work with individuals and small groups to develop training plans for races or athletic events from a 5k to the marathon, including road races, trail races, and triathlons. Programs are tailored to individual needs—distance goal, time goal, injury prevention, base training—and offer one-on-one support throughout the entire training process.
tread HAPPY is conveniently located, just a short walking distance between both the University of Virginia and Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall. You can also drive to the studio--they have dedicated parking!
