This place is huge and will set you up with everything from ski gear to jog bras to clothes for looking cute on the elliptical. Plus the prices can't be beat. Also check out their Presidio, Walnut Creek and Sunnyvale locations.

This is just a no-brainer. Lululemon has the cutest yoga, Pilates, running, chilling apparel out there. It's expensive but lasts forever.

Some rejoiced, some mourned when a Target opened in the city proper last year. But one thing you just can't be sad about is the cheap and stylish Champion workout wear available at Target. The jog bras are perfect for yoga, and the colors are fun.

A bit less expensive than Lululemon but also stylish, Athleta will set you up with tank tops (with bra inserts) in fun prints, cute tennis outfits, and swimsuits that will stay put while you paddle.
