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.
With their good looks and book smarts, David Miller and Melissa Weinberg have already won the genetic lottery—but only one can be crowned the victor of today's poll. A refresher: Weinberg is a Penn alum who keeps Philly-area "It girls" in shape via the hip and trendy Lithe Method; Miller, a Penn State grad, is the founder of D.A.M. Good Bodies and Elite Personal Training (and what a damn good body it is).
Each poll will close 24 hours after it's published, so you have until 12:30pm on Friday to vote for David or Melissa. To the poll!
Update: This poll is now closed.
