As you may all know, the bay is a great place to get in shape, cleanse your life, and start fresh. With a number of hiking trails and gym membership options, one may think about their appearance.
While the majority don’t exactly care what they look like and some care
too much, where do you find a middle man? Ladies (sorry gentlemen), I
introduce to you Akrovita. Tailored for your busy life and even busier
mind, this bay area women’s athletics company is keeping you and your
schedule in mind, “I really felt the need to fill this void for
cross-functional, work-to-workout clothes and I couldn’t think of
another person that would have been better-suited to join me than Krista
so I asked her whether she would embark on this journey with me and
luckily enough she said yes!” Akrovita tackles your day to night
situation with tops and bottoms you’ll want to wear around the clock.
“We are the only real fitness-meets-fashion brand in the area! We create products that are more hip and trendy and less crazy than your regular active wear so that you can wear it throughout the whole day and not just your workout!” Both Krista and Virginia of Akrovita realized that the gap between functionality and fashionably was scarce and few. “If the world’s fashion capitals have already caught on to this trend (and they have!) then why should San Franciscans be left out?” And that’s the bay area spirit we love.
How does this brand compare to your typical yoga pant situation? Well, “we make our own custom-made fabric, Dupluxe! It is the most silky and luxurious performance fabric that we’ve ever come across.” Women of all ages can subtly enjoy the comfort and luxury of an intense workout or play date. At the end of the day, you look great, you feel great, and that’s what Akrovita tries to inhibit in every woman.
So in parting, where does Akrovita intend to go? “We are definitely planning to extend our product of Dupluxe garments in a greater variety of cuts and colors and also expand into more active styles to offer some fun alternatives for ladies that don’t mind wearing bold colors and loud prints!”
Our cup of tea.
