We're officially entering the second half of Racked's Hottest Trainer voting, where reader votes will narrow down our initial pool of 16 men and women trainers down to just four before heading into the next round. Now it's time to decide who will face Ashley Derosena of Concrete Fitness in a showdown for the title of hottest male trainer later this week.
You've got four candidates to choose from: Akin Akman, the tennis prodigy-turned-tap back pro from Soulcycle; Danny Zapata, the high-kicking "instructor, motivational leader and DJ" from CityRow; Alex Toussaint, the East Hampton native who rides at Flywheel Sports; and Matt Nolan, the actor-singer-dancer that whips you into shape at Barry's Bootcamp.
Check out their photos in the gallery above, and be sure to read their full bios and interviews before voting in the poll below. You've only got until 11am tomorrow, August 25th, to cast your vote, so do it quickly—and tell all your friends, too, using the hashtag #RackedsHottestTrainer on social media. And tomorrow, in our last initial round of votes, you'll decide who's facing off against Samantha Skolkin of Kore for hottest female trainer.
