For those of you who have been patiently waiting for Athleta to arrive in St. Louis, the wait is over. Now open in Plaza Frontenac, Athleta is the athletic arm of the Gap franchise. Fans of this comfortable and well made line are rejoicing! Now they have local access to sporty clothing that is made for them. Literally. Athleta fits all body types, they even carry yoga pants in petite and tall sizes.
The store is bright, open and well organized. Athleta sells everything a woman needs for her workout routine plus super comfortable clothing and swimwear. In fact, their swimwear line is one of Athleta’s biggest sellers. The suits provide a great fit, good compression and two piece suits can be ordered separately. This way if your top is a small, but your bottom is a medium, you can still get a suit that fits perfectly! All purchases come with a “Give-It-A-Workout-Guarntee”. Take your clothing home, try it out, even work out in it and if it doesn’t feel right, you can return it for any reason, any time.
You can feel good about shopping here, this is a company that truly gives back to the community. “We are big supporters of both the Iron Girl and Esprit de She athletic events,” says General Manager Cathy Tracy, “they are athletic event series, like triathalons, just for women!” Athleta also holds FREE exercise classes, like yoga, in store a few times a month. Now that’s HANTASTIC! Visit them on the top level of Plaza Frontenac or see them online at: www.athleta.gap.com
