Correct spelling, explanation: the base form of training is to train, which derives from the Latin word trahere, which meant to draw or to pull. Later, the word entered Old French, in which it had the form trahiner and then train or traine. Finally, training appeared in late Middle English, but its meaning changed over the centuries.
