While Lululemon may have the yoga niche covered, this California-based athletic brand covers pretty much everything else workout related. The running/yoga/swim/hiking shop strategically opened its largest East Coast outpost in the midst of the avid joggers of the Upper East Side and offers up bowls of Luna bars for the taking to draw them in. The store is filled with quick-dry shirts stacked on utilitarian wheeled tables, which are often pushed aside for free in-store classes. There are also bags and jewelry of the earthy, beaded variety, along with stereotypically bright activewear and signature floral swimsuits. Their gear is no-frills, with hidden pockets, drawstrings, and all-wicking materials, but still stylish enough that athletes won’t feel the need to cover up while heading to gym.
