STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Let’s get pumped!

Best of Staten Island continues this month with best gym or yoga studio. We came to you, our loyal readers, to nominate your favorite.

You told us about 38 standout spots through countless emails and comments on social media.

Now, it’s time to vote.

From now until Sunday, Sept. 19, you have the chance to tell us who you think are the top five gyms or yoga studios around the borough by voting in our poll.

So skim the list below, consider doing some hands-on research and make your voice heard!

Following the voting period, we’ll show you the goods. From Sept. 20 to Sept. 30, we visit readers’ top five choices to show you who has the best equipment, the most motivational trainers and the greatest smoothie bars. Coverage will appear on the Advance/’s social media platforms — Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok — as well as in the Staten Island Advance.

Without further ado, here are the 38 Staten Island gyms and yoga studios nominated by our readers. After you give the list a good gander, cast your vote in the poll below.
