Founded in 1914, the original New York City location of Sterling Optical doled out frames amid the Ford Model Ts and paperboys that swarmed the city's financial district. The original band of eyesight experts weathered years of economic depression by impressing customers with speedy, full-service vision care, later launching a second store near Washington, DC. Today, a century of steady franchise expansion has given rise to almost 200 store locations in 23 states. Most locations continue the tradition of offering one-stop optical services, giving customers access to exams and onsite labs that manufacture glasses in one hour. The spectacle provider has been named one of the nation's leading franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.

Victor CrossFit's workouts are scalable to every age and fitness level. If you can't do a pull-up, no problem. VCF's coaches will cheer you on while you grab a platform and do negative pull-ups starting from the bar. If you can't do negative pull-ups, they'll scale you back to static hangs or body-weight rows using Olympic rings. They're happy to do it, because they know sooner or later, you'll build to a full pull-up. And once you do that, they can teach you advanced variations, such as kipped pull-ups.
The staff helps launch fitness journeys in Victor CrossFit's small-group WOD—Workout of the Day—classes. It begins with the On Ramp program, where coaches teach the proper form of foundational exercises such as Russian-kettlebell swings and Olympic lifts. Once clients have demonstrated adequate preparedness, coaches let them enter the WOD workouts, which change each day and emphasize functional movements to develop all-over conditioning. Throughout every workout, the staff fosters camaraderie and inclusiveness through ongoing support. They also encourage participants to motivate one another and affectionately refer to them as ninjas. VCF's trainers can also support clients beyond the gym by advising them on paleo dieting, which emphasizes nuts and seeds, little starch, and only the freshest brontosaurus eggs.

After Zumba classes, students can wind down with the Ocean Motion exercise routine, which targets the abdominals and glutes and is set to soothing ocean sounds.
