Welcome to Racked SF's search for San Francisco's hottest trainer. Over the past weeks, we profiled 13 smoking candidates who work at local gyms and studios. (Not only do they look hot in spandex, but if you take their classes, you might someday look nearly as good.) Now that you've gotten to know everyone, it's time for our March Madness-style showdown in which you get to vote for your favorite. Let the games begin!

In a dramatic end to round one of our Hottest Trainer competition, Nathan Ng of Bay Club and Tommy Stracke of Crunch tied at exactly 495 votes each. It's a Racked Network first! And it means they both move on to the second round, with a chance at the final round and the illustrious title of San Francisco's Hottest Trainer. They are both up against Dudley Flores, the inimitable Rhythm and Motion dance instructor who won handily in round 1.
The poll will close 48 hours after it's published, so you have until 10:00am on Wednesday to vote for a trainer in this group. The winner will move on to the final vote on Wednesday, going head to head against the women's finalist!
