The Sweatbar was created by Cheryl Baxter as an ecommerce destination in 2015. Baxter, a local mom, was tired of wearing the same old boring black leggings as everyone else. She saw a real need in the market for a single place to shop for stylish and unique activewear. Thus, she launched the digital boutique. Now she’s bringing her carefully curated selection of separates, which includes sexy swimsuits, to life with the pop-up. “Athleisure is a major trend, especially in this city and I’m excited for shoppers to experience the wide range of pieces available at The Sweatbar!” Baxter said in a statement.

From now until the end of January, shop for a variety of clothing perfect for yoga, cycling, tennis, surfing, barre, dance, and more. Baxter’s collection features bright colors, fashion forward patterns—think marble and snakeskin—and edgy details like mesh panels, patent stars, lace, and zippers. As we approach January and everyone in the city will inevitably be flocking to Barry’s Bootcamp and Soul Cycle, The Sweatbar is the ideal place to shop for pieces that will make you standout from the workout crowd.
