Body of Steele

Pump some iron with a personal trainer—or just look like you did

A perfect shop has opened in St. Paul for those who are as fashion-conscious as they are fitness-conscious. It’s Steele Fitness’s third personal-training-come-boutique.

The gym gear and “athleisure” clothing—for men and women—is top-notch. Famous favorites Lulu-lemon and Hard Tail make up the bulk, along with cult-favorite Margarita pants. The Zhoba workout dresses transition from gym to brunch, and the Yummy Tummy tops are cute enough for a date. Check it out in the fitting room, which is hidden behind a revolving wall. (Very Scooby-Doo.)

Spandex isn’t the only material, though. William Rast clothing mingles alongside Felix Rey handbags and knit blazers from Ryu. Indulge in spa goodies from Malin + Goetz and Bliss.

Don’t forget the gym in the back, manned by trainers who guide you through your workout and “the other 23 hours.” No excuses. Look good, feel good.

Steele Fitness
857 Grand Ave., St. Paul
