Born out of the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia in 2014, we were and continue to be the only functionally grounded, musically-driven run studio in the country. Indoor workouts, outdoor training, & social SWEAT meet-ups. A community where all are welcome. That's tread HAPPY®.
one tread tribe®
Inclusive & individual, we’re for everyone. Those who consider themselves runners and those who do not. It’s true: we tread TOGETHER and that’s not just lip service. Our studio classes break the mold, shunning an increasing obsession with competition so that our runners find the confidence to push past what they thought was previously possible.
breaking the mold
tread HAPPY® is more than just a workout. It’s here to help you Remix Your Run® - allowing you to take a classic form of fitness - running - and put a new, different, and awesome spin on it. Every interval, exercise, & drill: timed to the music. So you find the rhythm of your stride and end up pushing harder & faster but also leave feeling good. Hella Good. It’s called HAPPY after all.
indoors or out
No matter the place or your pace. We’re in it together to help you become your fittest, healthiest self - physically, mentally, & emotionally. Our staff is certified and deeply experienced of course, but what really sets us apart: our coaching philosophy grounded in our background as teachers. We train runners of all levels and abilities, both in groups and individually, with the care and support they need to get to the starting line healthy & cross the finish line HAPPY.
together we tread™
All you have to do is come and take those first steps. We’re here, with our beats bumpin’, to coach you so those steps become miles.
