Athleisure wear boutique opens in Harrisburg

Aug. 16, 2018

A new athleisure wear boutique has found a location in Harrisburg where potential customers come by its door every day.

Xtrinsic opened earlier this month in The Academy and Air Madness complex on Cliff Avenue on the north side of Harrisburg.

“I think it’s a perfect location for what’s going on in this building,” said Heather Metz, who owns the business with her husband, Bryan. “With the trampolines, the turf, Champion Fitness and the basketball and volleyball courts, it’s a very active building.”

The boutique is in the former Carrie Ann’s Boutique space, which moved to a nearby retail center.

Xtrinsic’s inventory includes leggings, cardigans, sweatshirts and more.

“You can have fitness apparel that you can take to the streets,” Metz said. The boutique stocks sizes from XS to XXL in a wide price range. “I’ve got pieces that are $20 and all the way up to $140. It’s all great quality. There’s something for everyone based on their budget.”

She opened with apparel for women and is expanding to pieces for men this week. Metz also plans to add inventory for children.

“There’s new inventory arriving daily.”

The northwest Iowa native came to the Sioux Falls area in 2006 after graduating from high school, moved away and then returned because she missed her family. The Metzs live in the Harrisburg School District area of southern Sioux Falls.

Metz created a limited number of custom pieces for the start of the Harrisburg Tigers school year. She found sequined tiger’s heads and had them sewn on flannel shirts, sweatshirts and bomber jackets.

She said she chose the name for the business based on the two types of motivation: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic motivation comes from inside a person and extrinsic is external rewards.

“My hope is people can use the fitness apparel to motivate them to work out, to be healthier, to be better at their jobs.”

Hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Wednesday through Friday, noon to 8 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 7 p.m. Sunday.
