Today marks the beginning of our second-annual search for the hottest fitness trainer in Philly. After sifting through all of the reader submissions and analyzing the nominees, we've narrowed it down to eight hot yoga instructors, spin leaders, drill sergeants, weight trainers, and more.
We'll be rolling out all the contestants over the next eight days. Each trainer will get their own post, complete with a photo gallery and a short bio. Then, it's time to determine our winner. Starting Thursday, August 21, we'll be asking you, our readers, to vote in a series of polls in order to crown the ultimate champion. The prize: Shining rays of glory and glittering Internet fame.
As always, promoting your fave trainer via social media is key, so if you're feeling someone, don't be afraid to show your love on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram/etc. We'll be using the #HottestTrainer2014 hashtag, so feel free to follow along.
Note that comments are encouraged, but anything mean-spirited or offensive will be removed. In addition to being ridiculously hot, our trainers are all really great people. Without further ado, let the games begin!
