Here are where St. Louisans go to get fit and get fixed-up. For working up a sweat, Pure Barre, Wellbridge and Club Fitness racked up the votes. And it’s easy to see why Clayton hotspot Dominic Michael Salon made the list—the complimentary cappuccinos take the edge off those exhausting, 90-minute mani/pedis. As for full-out lounging around the pool and hot tub, The Four Seasons Day Spa got a special shout out, probably for its panoramic views of the mighty Mississippi and our beloved St. Louis skyline.

St. Louisans are paying it forward by naming names! When you’re at the end of your rope—like shoe-shopping with kiddos—Laurie’s staffers are there with the patience of Job. And for the chronic ‘returners’ out there, Nordstrom and Trader Joe’s have made that easy with no-questions-asked policies. St. Louisans have said it clearly: service counts. That’s why The Gatesworth, where the answer is always yes, is on the list. Same for Distinctions and Genovese, known for personal service with a smile.
