Welcome to our search for New York City's hottest trainer. Over the coming weeks, we'll profile twenty-two smoking candidates who work at local gyms and studios. Once you've gotten to know everyone, we'll host a March Madness-style showdown in which you get to vote for your favorite.

Twenty-two contestants later, we're finally ready to vote for New York City's Hottest Trainer. We've separated the competitors into two groups of men and two groups of women for Round 1. Next week, the winners from each group will compete against each other in Round 2. On Wednesday, we'll have the final face-off and crown one of them the winner.
On Monday, we introduced the first group of women, and yesterday, the first group of men. Now, it's time to put the remaining six women up to a vote. Today's poll includes Layla Luciano of Barry's Bootcamp and SLT, Jaimie Bailey of Flywheel, Winter Gabriel of the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers, Kristin Kenney of Revolve, Courtney Alexander of Crunch, and Ashley Lively of SYNCSTUDIO. Click through the gallery above for a refresher on each contestant, plus a link to their profile on the site.
Each poll will close 48 hours after it's published, so you have until 11:30am on Friday to vote for a trainer in this group.
Update: The poll is now closed. Winner Jaimie Bailey will be advancing to Round 2 on Monday!
