Athleta, a Sonoma, Calif.-based fitness and lifestyle apparel brand designed for women athletes, is slated to open its first Upstate New York location, at Eastview Mall, next month.

Throughout the holiday season Athleta will be located in the Von Maur wing of the Victor shopping facility, mall officials said. It will move to a permanent location in the Macy’s wing in early 2014.

Athleta a Gap Inc. brand, features performance apparel and gear for activities such running, yoga, Pilates, gym/training and swimming. The store also will offer free fitness classes, a personalized styling service and in-store discounts for fitness professionals.

Athleta was founded in 1998 and acquired by Gap 10 years later.
