Sherma Francis founded Diva Fitness because she wanted women to have a holistic alternative to the gym. That explains why the boot-camp classes are held outdoors, but the workouts aren’t just an opportunity to admire the fresh air and blue skies. Francis is a certified fitness and spinning instructor, and her intense cardio and strength-training exercises are designed to whip bodies into shape fast. In addition to boot camps at public parks, she offers at-home personal-training sessions for exercisers who prefer to work out in private or are afraid of being distracted by cute baby deer.

C Street's façade combines the traditional and the playful, with its neoclassical columns and bold, striped awnings. Jon and Leah Nelson of Richmond.com confirm that this style extends to the food, calling C Street's meals of grilled fontina sandwiches and buttermilk fried chicken breast "unique enough to stand out while still keeping with the familiar." Guests dining on the heated patio start meals with salads of julienned beetroot and seasonal veggies, which lead to duck breast with apple relish and grit cakes. Inside, silky powder-blue curtains and antiqued brass chandeliers bring an old-fashioned sensibility to the 21st century more effectively than a steam-powered cell phone. On Sundays, guests enjoy brunches of belgian waffles and veggie frittatas—a suitably fashionable start to a day of shopping in Carytown.
