Who's the Hottest Trainer in New York City? Vote Now!

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Over the past month, you've met sixteen of the hottest trainers that New York City has to offer, and over the past ten days, you've let us know who are your favorites. And if you thought that part was hard, then you might not be prepared for what we're about to hit you with: Our final vote to determine this year's hottest trainer once and for all.

Now's the time to decide between Samantha Skolkin, the 25-year-old bikini fitness champion from New Jersey who pumps up clients at the new Meatpacking District gym Kore, and Akin Akman, the 28-year-old Turkish childhood tennis star who taps it back at Soulcycle.

Read up on our respective hottest male and female trainers in their interviews linked above, and make that tough decision by voting in the poll below (and then immediately share the love for your favorite trainer on social media with the hashtag #RackedsHottestTrainer). There's only 24 hours to vote—this poll will close at 12:30pm on Tuesday, September 1st.
