WHETHER it’s yoga or pilates, body pump or spin, Zumba or Clubbercise, there is something for everyone when it comes to fitness.

But which fitness or gym instructor in St Helens is the best? 

Who has what it takes to keep you going back to the gym or the same fitness class every week?

Is your pilates instructor, personal trainer or spin coach on another level?

Does your body pump teacher give you the perfect workout or does your dance teacher always get the best out of you?

In the latest instalment of our Best of 2024 competition, gym and fitness instructors will be taking centre stage and we want to know who should make our shortlist and why. 

In our Best of 2024 campaign, we’ve given out seven awards so far in St Helens for hair, nails and cocktails as well roast dinner, fish and chips, breakfast and pies.

Voting is currently taking place to find St Helens’ Best Beer Garden, with the vote closing at midnight on Sunday, June 16.

Vote for St Helens' Best Beer Garden 2024

Our next category will focus on fitness and who inspires and motivates you to keep fit and healthy.

We know it will be no easy feat to choose a winner which is why we’ll be handing over the final decision to those who know best – our readers.


Each Friday morning we will reveal new categories via our social media pages and ask you who is the best. Nominations will then close each Monday morning at 12pm.

Every Thursday we will publish a shortlist of finalists with voting officially opening.

You will be able to vote in one of three ways:

- By commenting under the relevant post on our St Helens Star Facebook or Twitter pages = 1 vote

- By entering via the online article on our St Helens Star website = 2 votes

- By entering via our St Helens Star newspaper = 5 votes

Voting closes each Sunday evening at midnight.

The following Wednesday evening we will announce the winner of that category on social media.

Usual Newsquest competition rules apply.
