From their Web site:

Changing lifestyles and attitudes toward fitness apparel among women have created a demand for more versatile, fashion-conscious technical activewear that offers both functional performance and style appeal.

To meet this demand and bring more diversity to the Washington, DC women’s market, Core72 will offer distinctive, stylish, high performance apparel and accessory lines from a range of manufacturers, all higly acclaimed in the outdoor industry but with limited distribution in our area. Core72 will offer products in the running, yoga/pilates, travel/lifestyle and cycling categories with a seasonal focus on standup paddling, swimming and/or skiing.

Full of Beans children’s clothing has moved around the corner to 3813 Livingston St, NW:

  • ah

    Yay for more yoga pants! Can’t serve that fashion trend fast enough . . .

  • Wow – lots of words! Put on shorts and an old T-shirt – go for a walk/hike/run in the neighborhood – Rock Creek park – mall – just go – it’ s fun. You don’t need fancy clothes.

      I used to feel that way, until I started working out regularly. When you spend half your evening in exercise clothes you want them to be things you enjoy wearing. Stores like Lululemon are still way out of my price range, but I’ve gotten nice inexpensive activewear from Marshall’s and the like.

        Also, you do need specialized clothing for some of the activities listed. I’m excited that they’ll be selling ski items!

  • I’m sure it will be a lovely store and I wish it well, but the orange 72 reminds me of one of those color blindness tests
