If you're a longtime Racked reader, you'll recall that last year we pitted boutique owners against each other in an all-out hotness battle. We'll, we're bringing the competition back this year, but instead of shopkeeps we're turning our attention to some of this city's most beautiful residents: trainers. And we need your help. We're on the hunt for the men and women that look the best in spandex, the ones that make you actually want to show up for that 7am Bikram sweatfest or that Sunday morning spinning session, the ones that have improbably toned arms and impossibly low body fat. Yoga teachers, spinning instructors, pilates tutors, hip hop class leaders—it's all fair game.
