After launching last year with a pop-up location in Nolita, Tory Sport lands in New York’s Flatiron district this week with a permanent store. Featuring everything from crisp white tennis skirts and polo shirts, to yoga and pilates gear, to some of the chicest gym bags on the market today, Tory Burch has thought of it all for her venture into the athleisure market. And the preppy line is the perfect extension of the designer’s ever-expanding lifestyle empire. Burch, an avid fitness and wellness guru in her own right, naturally has her own spots around the city to get her sweat on, detox, and refuel after a killer workout.
What are your favorite neighborhood spots in New York for a healthy snack or meal?
Café Habana has a delicious chicken salad and Milos has the freshest Greek salad and grilled octopus. That’s not to say we always resist steak fries from Eisenberg's…
What is your favorite juice spot in the city?
Juice Press—they have the best coconut water and there is a location close to our office.
Where do you go for a spa-cation in the city?
I get a facial at Georgia Louise or Tracie Martyn every couple of months. The LED treatments are amazing.
Where do you go when you need to detox?
Neighborhood with the best fitness classes or spas in the city?
Flatiron is the center for fitness classes. There are so many options, from cycling (Soul Cycle with Lily Miesmer) to boxing to pilates and hot yoga.
Before you launched Tory Sport, where did you go to shop for fitness gear in the city?
Honestly, I kept going back to pieces from high school and college—my Tretorns, Fred Perry polos, Boast tennis skirts—it is one of the reasons I launched the brand.
Favorite spot in the city for an outdoor workout?
I love running in Central Park, especially when I can convince my boys to come with me.
Five items from Tory Sport that are always in your gym bag?
I usually workout in our performance jersey tanks and chevron leggings or nylon shorts, but I also always pack a track suit and a Coolmax cashmere sweater for the trip home.
