Yesterday, we kicked off Round One of our Hottest Trainer 2014 competition with our eight male contenders. Today, we're spotlighting the ladies. To refresh on the rules, we've broken the sixteen contestants into two groups: one group of men and one group of women. Next Monday, 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.
Without further ado, here are our female competitors: Marnie Alton of Barre Belle, Naomi Priestley of The Sweat Shoppe, Erica Eynon of Easton Gym, Jacquelyn Umof of RockIt Body Pilates, Angela Davis of SoulCycle, Amy McGuire of Pop Physique, Jai Franklin of The Dailey Method and Megan Lynn Strand of Exhale Spa. 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 Sunday, August 24 at 11:30am PST).
Update: This poll is now closed.
