It was Scott Catton’s father who opened the first two-for-one optical store in Ontario in 1989. It was called Wholesale Vision, and the glasses sold there were crafted at the lens-manufacturing facility onsite. The company may have changed its name to iVision in 2000, and it may have a new president—Scott—but it still offers two-for-one specs, perfect for those who misplace things or for for people like Superman, who need to completely change their identity in a hurry. iVision also still manufactures all of its lenses in-house. These lenses go on to fill regular frames as well as frames from designer brands such as Ray-Ban, Hugo Boss, Prada, and Gucci.
CrossFit invigorates students with comprehensive conditioning programs that furnish core strength and improve overall health. During a one-hour elements training session, certified instructors engage pupils with an extensive, functional workout that primes physiques for the higher-intensity signature CrossFit challenge and lower-intensity stamp-licking contests. Muscle moulders flourish their technique with varied skill circuits anchored in squats, dead lifts, and shoulder presses and increase their endurance with plyometric jumps, burpees, and sprints. In addition to laying the foundation for the speed, power, and medieval crossbow domains of traditional CrossFit, the introductory elements classes foster athletes in a less competitive environment in order to inspire confidence.

At its 10 locations throughout Canada, The Athletic Club provides access to exercise machines and fitness classes, but that’s only part of the story. Club staffers also follow an overarching mission to making discovering a healthy lifestyle fun rather than onerous. While exploring the multilevel fitness arenas, members and guests may catch encouraging shouts from personal trainers or a medley of splashing and laughter from children taking swimming lessons from professional instructors. They can also investigate the benefits of yoga or spinning during group classes or one-on-one instruction. Cardio machines boost heart rates and bolster endurance, while flat-panel televisions attached to each machine keep members entertained. In addition to building new bodily abilities, members also keep their minds sharp with services such as nutrition counselling or wellness classes held on the astral plane.
