Welcome to Racked Philly's search for Philadelphia's hottest trainer. We're barreling full steam ahead toward our final face-off poll on Monday, August 25. Forty-eight hours later will mark the moment we've all been waiting for: One of our finalists will officially be crowned the Hottest Trainer in Philly.
The men in this year's contest (clockwise from top left): Steve Massimini, Aaron Sistrunk, Lee Woodall, Gavin McKay
Last month, we put out an open call for Philadelphia's hottest fitness trainers. From there, our panel of experts combed through tons of shirtless, sweaty photos to select eight contestants. (We know, it was hard work.) Now, it's time to vote. Here's how it'll go down: Yesterday, we opened a poll for the women, while today's poll will give you a chance to vote for your favorite male contestant. One winner from both polls will progress the final face-off on Monday, and on Wednesday, August 27, one of our finalists will officially be crowned the Hottest Trainer in Philly.
Now, the men of the competition: puppy dog-eyed punisher Steve Massimini, Hollywood movie success story Aaron Sistrunk, Evander Holyfield doppelganger Lee Woodall, and introspective carb-eater Gavin McKay.
Update: This poll is now closed.
