Welcome to Racked Philly's search for Philadelphia's hottest trainer. Now that we're in the voting stage of the competition, here's how it'll go down: This week, we'll hold our Round 1 polls, the winners of which will progress to next week's Round 2 polls. On Wednesday, August 28, we'll hold the Round 3 final face-off, and on Thursday, August 29, one of our finalists will officially be crowned the Hottest Trainer in Philly.
Today's poll is a face-off between 12th Street Gym personal trainer Char Biggs and Thrive Pilates Zumba instructor Lori Vetrano. Both are easy on the eyes, but only one can get your vote. So who'll it be? Char, the hard-bodied personal trainer with a soft spot for dogs? Or Lori, the breakdancing bookworm with sexy, Zumba-molded curves?
Each poll will close 24 hours after it's published, so you have until 12:30pm on Thursday to vote for Char or Lori. To the poll!
Update: This poll is now closed.
