As if greater access to nature, fresh air, and fitness trails weren’t enough to motivate the embrace of an active lifestyle, the south now has all the gear to accompany it. Recently, Europe’s prime retailer for sports, Decathlon, opened its doors just a quick drive from the East Bay Residences by Rockwell Primaries.
With more than 1,000 branches worldwide, the French company has become a beloved brand for its highly comprehensive and affordable selection of apparel, accessories, and equipment for anyone who wants to get physical. For indoor exercise enthusiasts, shelves stock everything from suspension trainers to yoga mats, while the outdoors are most definitely covered through items that span hiking shoes to tents of all sizes.
The store itself is a testimony to the lifestyle it upholds considering it’s got a basketball court, climbing wall, and venues to test out equipment for tennis, football, and golf on its premises. Once you’ve checked off all the gear you need, however, the open south that surrounds East Bay Residences becomes your fitness playground. At this one-stop shop, you can lace up, suit up, and head out equipped to achieve your #ActiveGoals.
