Best of: Gyms

Where's the best place to go and get fit in Northborough?

We want to pump .... you up! To vote. On gyms.

Gyms, places to do yoga, karate and pilates — if it's a place to go and get fit, it's in the running for Northborough Patch's contest for the best gym.

Where do you go to get your head, body and mind shaped up? Or, if you don't, where would you go? , , , or

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday.

Vote, too, on the best gyms in some of our other MetroWest Patch towns: Marlborough, Grafton, Shrewsbury, Westborough and Framingham.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

Ties will be broken by whichever business has the most positive comments in the section below. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.

So tell us what your favorite place is to go and get fit. And don't forget to tell us in the comments below why.

I thought about taking a reformer class at the Core Connection for a long time, but kept putting it off, thinking I would not be able to do it because it seemed sort of intimidating. However, I am so glad I finally went. It changed the entire way I think about exercise. Rita and the other instructors are incredibly focused on making sure that you move properly. I realized that for years, I was not using machines at regular gyms properly. There’s a LOT to exercising properly and if you don’t have a highly trained professional leading you, you will do it wrong, not get results, and more importantly, get hurt. After just a few sessions, I felt comfortable on the reformer because of the great guidance I received and could really notice a difference as compared to my regular gym workouts. Also, the studio is a beautiful space to go and take care of your body. We laugh a lot during the sessions so it is fun too! The Core Connection is the best! MJ

The Core Connection is truly an amazing place to treat yourself. The staff are not only friendly but extremely professional and they really know what they are doing.You can either take a class which is in an extremely relaxing, clean and peaceful setting or you can go in for a private and have your workout totally tailored to your needs. Rita is up on the latest and greatest and is one of very few that has the most cutting edge equipment. I personally love the reformer she has in her studio. Her energy is enough to just make you want to push yourself during your work out! If you are looking for a fitness center, CORE CONNECTION is the way to go!!!!

I've been going to Shake fitness since before they opened in Northborough and I love it there. The instructors are fabulous and the Zumba work outs are the best I have ever had. The energy and the other attendees are outstanding!
