The instant adrenaline rush and long-term physical benefits are great workout motivators, but sometimes all it takes to get excited is a new top or leggings. From Nashville-based retailers to trendy brick-and-mortars across town, these are the best places to get your fitness fix.
Where to Buy Activewear in Nashville
Crue is a boutique in Nashville that focuses solely on athleisure wear for women. They have the hottest brands and latest trends for the active gal. Crue carries brands like Beyond Yoga, Spiritual Gangster, Splits59, Varley, and Beach Riot.
As its name suggests, this women’s boutique in East Nashville focuses on premium sustainable activewear. Think of Longevity as a place to try on all the best brands you stalk online—Electric & Rose, Splits59, Varley—before purchasing. (Their website is great too, though; check out the “Under $100” section for healthy deals.)
Outdoor Voices is on a mission to get the world moving hence the company hashtag, #DoingThings. The brand opened a store on 12 South where workout lovers can shop leggings, tanks, tees, fleeces, and more. The Nashville location hosts multiple events throughout the year which are mostly free.
A perennial favorite for the fitness-minded, Lululemon moved its Green Hills location just across the street and gained a ton of square footage (meaning additional merch) in the process. Make sure to check out Lululemon’s latest location now open in the Gulch! Another reason to love Lulu: The chain regularly hosts and participates in community events, many of which you can find here.
Athleta is a winner for combining Gap’s famed comfy fit with the quality of high-end performance wear. Pretty much any fitness item you need—tops, bottoms, outerwear, swimwear, accessories, shoes—can be found at the Athleta in The Mall at Green Hills.
Target was already popular among fitness buffs for its C9 collaboration with Champion, and now you can shop their very own activewear line: JoyLab. As you’d expect from Target, the pieces are trendy, well made, and budget-friendly—shop them at the White Bridge and Nashville West locations.
Nike Factory Store
What’s worth braving the crowds at Opry Mills? Top-notch Nike gear—a ton of it—at slashed prices. In addition to tops, bottoms, and accessories for men, women, and kids, Nike Factory Store’s selection of footwear is especially on point.
