The fitness instructors at each of Body Sculpting's dozens of gyms lead their customers in the fight to stave off osteoporosis, increase lean muscle mass, improve cardiovascular fitness, and lose weight. During fitness sessions, they teach visitors the proper form and principles of the gym's flagship Body Sculpting program, which focuses on cardio and weight-training exercises that often require only a set of 5-pound dumbbells, an exercise mat, and a stretch band. They augment this central program with a range of other classes that delve into barre-fitness techniques, exercises for the abdominals and core, workouts for the back, and cardiovascular training. To help customers achieve their fitness goals and continue fighting crime past bedtime, the gym sells products such as stretch bands used by physical therapists, heel-elevation boards, and instructional manuals. Trainers also help customers stay fit with an exercise of the month that draws from techniques such as Pilates.

SVS Vision Center?s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 60 locations sprawled across 8 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center?s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
