We asked, you answered. After thoroughly reviewing all of your amazing Hottest Trainer 2014 submissions, our team identified sixteen steamy contestants to profile this week and last. Now that you've gotten to know each nominee, it's time to begin the voting process. Here's how it works: We've separated the competitors into two groups: one group of eight men and one group of eight women. Next week, the winners from each group will compete against each other in a final face-off—Round Two—where we'll crown one of them the Hottest Trainer in LA. The prize: Shining rays of glory and internet fame.
Let's begin with the guys. First up, we have Drew Lipson of Orangetheory Fitness, Keith Johnson of Crunch Sunset, Byron Quiros of Lotus Kitty, Jeff Schine of Studio Metamorphosis, PJ Stahl of Lockbox LA, Marco Reed of LIFT West Hollywood, Lamar Gordon of David Barton Gym and Tolland Weems of AuraCycle. In the gallery above you'll see a photo of each trainer, along with a link to their profile.
After you've sufficiently inspected the goods, cast your vote in the poll below. (Note: This poll is open for 48 hours; it closes on Saturday, August 23 at 11:30am PST).
Update: This poll is now closed.
