Welcome to Racked New York's search for New York City's hottest trainer. Over the coming weeks, we'll profile sixteen smoking locals—fitness experts who not only look hot in spandex, but can make you look amazing too. Once you've gotten to know everyone, we'll host a March Madness-style showdown in which readers vote for their favorites. Let the games begin!

We opened up the vote for male trainers yesterday, and now it's time to tell us who's the hottest female trainer in the city. The winner from this poll and the men's poll will face off next week for the title of Racked's Hottest Trainer.
Our female contestants are Karyn Nesbit of Soulcycle, Kira Alvarado of Exhale Spa & Fitness, Bethany Lyons of Lyons Den, Julia Avery of The Fhitting Room, Sherri Norige of Physique 57, Meliza Fernandez of Vixen Workout, Katharine Lucić of SyncStudio, and Brookelyn Suddell of Crunch.
Click through the gallery above to refresh your memory on each female trainer, plus get a link to their profile. The poll will close 48 hours after it's published, so you only have until noon on Sunday to vote for the hottest female trainer!
Update: We have a winner! Congrats to Sherri Norige of Physique 57!
