Pacific EyeCare & Optical ameliorates the nearsighted and farsighted with a bevy of custom lenses embedded inside designer frames. Guess, Cole Haan, and Izod lead the boutique’s lineup of designer glasses ($99–$259), which attract favorable attention to the upper-cranium without having to wear a Trojan war helmet. Each ocular accessory comes fitted with single-vision plastic ($90), polycarbonate ($146), or mid–high index ($185-$229) lenses. Optical orbs can be embellished with no-line progressive bi-focals ($185), transition tints (additional $85), or glare-free lenses (additional $89) for easier reading in the sun or by the unreliably flickering light of a burning pile of Eat Pray Love Blu-rays.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn up to 500 calories with each go-round.

CrossFit 509's coaches often talk about the concept of "general physical preparedness"?that is, the ability to handle any physical challenge that might be thrown at you. They devise their CrossFit Workouts of the Day (WODs) with this concept in mind, focusing on exercises that boost strength and endurance through varied movements. The WOD is the very core of CrossFit, but it's never quite the same. One day it might draw from Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics, while another day it might involve squeezing a brick until it explodes.

At The Fitness Center's two gyms, a welcoming, familial atmosphere is paired with high-tech exercise equipment and a full menu of group classes. Guests can work out on Hoist, Cybex, and Octane machines on their own, or first-time visitors can enlist the help of a staff member to show them around or install training wheels on their stationary bike. Les Mills and Zumba classes torch calories in a group setting, and water aerobics takes place in the pool when family swim, lap swim, or swimming lessons aren't in session. Guests can adjust the intensity of their racquetball games from playful to competitive on four courts, then retire to the sauna for a post-workout bask.

By the time he was in fifth grade, Physzique?s founder, Zach Hunt, weighed 200 pounds. Not being able to fit into school clothes, avoiding family photos?his weight became an obstacle he thought he might never overcome. After years of ineffective diets, exercise techniques, and fitness equipment, he decided that the only option left was to create a program that would work for him. Devoting himself to the study of exercise and nutrition finally helped him cut through the mist of misinformation and marketing gimmicks, and arrive at a straightforward formula for lasting fitness. After friends began asking how they could achieve the same weight loss and muscle gain they?d noticed, Zach founded Physzique to share the same simple plan he?d discovered: intense but varied workouts, performed in groups large enough to form a network of support and accountability, but small enough for attention to each person?s needs. Physzique?s trainers supplement training sessions with realistic nutrition guidance that works in tandem with the exercises to tone muscle, reduce inches, and restore depleted energy reserves more effectively than a post-workout coffee bath.
