Store manager Jessica Benno describes Athleta as a "women's lifestyle and performance brand. We have partnerships with the studios and gyms. We are of and for the community.

"Athleta offers a 30 percent `pro-fit' discount for all of our fitness professionals," she said.

"From marathons or yoga to running around town with the family or getting coffee, our pieces can be worn throughout the entire day," said Lisa Souza, the brand's district manager.

"We are thrilled to be in Westport. We know that she lives a life in motion. We want to make sure that we are outfitting her," Souza added.
