Name the Best Place to Work Out

Vote in our Readers' Choice poll until 9 a.m. Friday.

The hectic schedule of a Patch editor makes it hard to squeeze in time for a trip to the gym. One day soon, I hope to make my way to one of Canton's fitness facilities.

First, I need your help.  

Tell Patch the best place to work out in Canton-Sixes.

Here are a few places in Patch's free business directory, but if we're leaving any off the list, let us know in the comments, and we'll add it:

  •  (Bluffs Parkway).
  • (Marietta Highway).
  • (Sixes Road). 
  • .
  • .
  • .
  • .
  • .
  • .
  • Rockout Fitness.
  • .
  • .
  • .

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Because the poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration. The winner will be determined by the editor based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places.

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 me where I can burn off all of the chicken finger sandwiches I've eaten this past week. And don't forget to pick your favorite gyms in ,  and .

Please vote only once a day per survey per Patch.

Also, start thinking about next week's poll, when we'll pick the best places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Our family loves Canton ATA. Mr. Murphy is a world class athlete (six time world champion) and instructor. If you want a serious work out, Krav Maga is the only way to go. Krav is an extremely effective Israeli self defense system. It combines mixed martial arts with an insane circuit style work out focusing on both cardio & strength training . It's like cross fit with an extreme attitude.

Crossfit Canton - A combination of nutritional counseling and intense workouts led by top notch coaches that care have allowed me to eliminate high blood pressure and cholesterol meds during my short time as a member. Not a better place or group of people to be a part of in the world.

CROSSFIT CANTON is the BEST place to work out! I joined in Nov 2011 and have had EXTREME results. The Coaches are the best, they make sure you know they really CARE about you as a whole. I have been a member of several different gyms/classes on and off for years ~ I am done looking/changing, CROSSFIT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE!

CrossFit Canton hands down is the best place to work out. It is a family/ community enviroment. We blog our workouts everyday, members leave encouraging comments that just motivate you even more. Every workout is different, not the same Zumba dance or step class routine. You will be challenged everytime you step inside this gym!! Love it!!

Canton ATA Martial Arts is the best place to work out. It is the only place I have found to get a great serious work out.

Crossfit Canton is the best Gym no matter what fitness level you are at. The people make the place. the workouts are tailored to your fitness needs and you get the benefit of having others around you to encourage you.

This is by far the best gym in Canton and that I have ever been a part of. This is not a gym where you go and look at yourself in the mirror and see how big your biceps get before you leave. Nor is it a gym where you join and disappear in a sea of people on a row of elliptical machines and running machines. It is about relationships, results and becoming something, or maybe better phrased: finding, the person that you were created to be. It is not a workout...it is a lifestyle and becoming part of something big. I remember my first class and when they announced to everyone that I was the new guy. I guess I just didn't expect it when everyone cheered, but I new immediately that I belonged. If you really want to understand Crossfit Canton...well, come and experience it. It will change your life.

Philip Hart March 09, 2012 at 02:00 AM
Kind of feel the same way...Don't really know how that is possible.
Cody Smith March 09, 2012 at 02:27 AM
thats what i think there is no way

Welcome to the age of social media! You'd be surprised how fast things spread when people share links on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms.

I have to say that CrossFit Canton, hands down is the best!! What coaches call you or text you when you go MIA and send you encouragement?? What coaches work with you, not only on fitness and nutrition but on lifestyle change and personal encouragement?? The coaches at CrossFit Canton, that's who!!! We aren't talking about 40 hour a week hourly employees here. We are talking about a family. If you have been on their team for 2 years or just 1 day, you are ON THEIR TEAM......and they truly care about YOU!!

I wanted to thank all that voted for CFC and posted some very flattering reviews about our gym. I'm grateful and humbled by all your comments and your strong show of support. We have an amazing community at CFC! I'm also very amazed by all the support shown by all the gyms in Canton and proud that all of these facilities have created such strong fitness communities. Keep doing what you are obviously doing well! Best wishes, Coach P.
