Fit Gal’s Closet in La Quinta offers active wear for all types of workouts.
Although the practice of yoga inherently helps us to feel more beautiful and confident in our own bodies, sometimes the images of idealized beauty surrounding us can have the opposite effect. Instead of perpetuating this culture by catering to just a certain body type, Fit Gal’s Closet is taking an inclusive approach. This women’s-only fitness and leisure wear boutique in La Quinta the Palm Springs area opened in February 2015 and sells clothing for every “fit gal” from size XS to XXL. Owner Marci Falldorf says, “The idea behind the store was to have something for everybody.” Everyone who works at the shop believes in this and takes the time to help shoppers find the right fit matching function with fashion.
Whether your favorite way to break a sweat is on the mat or on the golf course, tennis court, running path, barre class, bike, or gym, this store has something for your workout, as well as a selection of casual loungewear, skirts, and dresses. Fit Gal’s Closet also offers instructors and studio owners a 15% discount on all merchandise, which includes clothing from popular brands including Prana, Lucy, Soybu, and Zobha.
Beginning this fall, the store will offer specialty classes such as PiYo and yoga for golf. If you don’t live in the desert region, you’re not missing out as you can peruse the Fit Gal’s inventory online. You’ll find some affordable prices and versatile outfits to add flair to your practice.
