For the fourth year in a row, we're shining a spotlight on LA's most sizzlingly fitness instructors via our annual Hottest Trainer competition. The sixteen-person battle starts this August, and we're taking nominations now.
If you think your yoga, barre, dance, cycling, Pilates, CrossFit, Piloxing, et cetera instructor is worthy of taking the crown from 2014's winner Naomi Priestley, send their name, affiliated studio, and a recent photo to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Hottest Trainer 2015". Don't forget to include a paragraph on why you think they deserve the glory of winning our yearly competition. (Trainers, you can nominate yourselves, too!)
