Today officially begins our third-annual search for the hottest fitness trainer in New York City. After sifting through all of the reader submissions and analyzing the abs, pecs, and thighs of the nominees, we've narrowed it down to sixteen yoga instructors, indoor cycling gurus, barre masters, HIIT trainers, and more.
We'll be rolling out all the contestants over the next two weeks. Each trainer will get their own post, complete with a photo gallery and a short bio. We'll begin the voting on Thursday, August 21st by splitting the contestants up by gender, the winners of which will be chosen by a reader vote. The hottest male and female trainer will then go up against each other in a final vote, and one will be crowned the ultimate champion.
Promoting your favorite trainer via social media is key, so if you have a crush, don't be afraid to shout it from the rooftops—or your laptop. All forms of social media are welcome, and the more the better. We'll be Tweeting, Instagramming, and Facebooking with the hashtag #RackedsHottestTrainers, so feel free to follow along.
Of course, comments are encouraged, but anything mean-spirited or offensive will be removed. In addition to being pretty damn sexy, our trainers are all really great people. Without any further ado, let the games begin!
