Eye Express's squad of certified eye docs brings the world from soft to sharp focus by fitting faces with fashionable frames ($79 and up), lenses ($79 and up), and sunglasses. Amplify comfort and abate adjustments by having frames equipped with spring hinges, or snag a pair goggles molded from durable memory metal to assure they don't forget your birthday. Allergy hurdles are effortlessly surmounted with hypoallergenic frames made from stainless steel, titanium, and plastic, and the stalwart grip of silicone nose pads thwart spectacles' low-sliding escape plans. Depending on prescriptions and preferences, lenses can be imbued with glare-eradicating dexterity, or taught to harness the hue-shifting prowess of a Thanksgiving turkey with sun-activated tints.

The Gorilla Gauntlet is the type of obstacle course that relishes in defeating the most fit of competitors. Thirty two obstacles adorn the course, forcing racers to climb 8-foot-tall walls, swing on monkey bars, and flip heavy tires to reach the finish line. Guests have two tries for each obstacle, and earn a 10 burpee penalty for each incomplete feature. And the course is completely dry, meaning no mud, water, or personal rain clouds to cool down guests or long distances between obstacles to rest up.

Each Eye Doctor’s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop’s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp’s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.

Curves trades in competitive rows of workout equipment for a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. During 30-minute circuit classes, trainees form a convivial circle as they rotate from machine to machine, timed by a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music. Health-minded toe-tappers can attend eight classes of the new Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness, which mixes Zumba dance moves with resistance exercises to create a muscle-toning combo that's almost as fun as your Jane Fonda salsercise tapes.
