This sportswear shop caters to all athletic levels, from those training for the New York City Marathon to those simply biking to work every day. The New York minichain has opened its fourth location (the others are in Union Square, the Upper East Side and Park Slope), offering goods for runners, bikers and swimmers. Find workout gear like Moving Comfort sports bras ($44), Asics running shoes ($130), TYR racerback swimsuits ($70) and Garmin fitness watches ($199–$399) that can track your heart rate, distance traveled and calories burned. The boutique also has perks for athletes, such as a space in the basement that will hold yoga classes, and rows of lockers that the public can use hourly (50¢) to stash stuff during a jog in nearby Central Park.

If your looking for a good running store with a nice variety of stock, this will do you nicely. The staff are really well informed with the majority coming from very good running backgrounds, so you'll feel very well looked after. The products they carry are ranked very highly and priced moderately. On top of that, they come with great customer service from the store, handling any warranty issues for products purchased from them. They have a treadmill in store too, so if you want to test new trainers out or get a gait analysis, they can handle it all for you.
