Now that you've gotten to know each of our sixteen Hottest Trainer 2015 contestants, it's time to begin the voting process. Here's how it works: We've separated the competitors into four groups: two groups of four men and two groups of four women. Next Monday and Tuesday, the second groups of men and women will be voted on, followed by Round Two polls on Wednesday and Thursday pitting the winners from each group against each other. On Friday, one winner from the men's group and one winner from the women's group will compete against each other in a final face-off—Round Three—where we'll crown one of them the Hottest Trainer in LA. The prize: shining rays of glory and internet fame, of course.
Let's begin with the first round of men. First up, we have Ryan Adams of Mansion Fitness, Ricardo Vargas of Barry's Bootcamp, Brendon Ayanbadejo of Orangetheory Fitness, and Drake Abshire of Equinox West Hollywood. In the gallery above you'll see a few photos of each trainer, along with a link to their profile. After you've thoroughly reviewed the goods, cast your vote in the poll below. (Note: This poll is open for 24 hours; it closes on Friday, August 21st at 11am PST).
