Welcome to our first-annual search for the hottest fitness trainer in San Francisco. After sifting through all of the reader submissions and analyzing the abs, pecs, and thighs of the nominees, we've narrowed it down to more than a dozen hot yogis, dance instructors, spin leaders, weight trainers, and more.
We'll be rolling out all the contestants over the next two weeks. Each trainer will get his or her own post, complete with a photo gallery and a short bio. We'll begin the voting on Monday, August 19th by dividing the contestants into groups and naming winners by a reader vote. We'll continue to pit them against each other until just two remain standing—they'll face off, and one will be crowned the ultimate champion.
Last year, our colleagues in New York and L.A. learned that promoting your favorite trainer via social media is key, so if you have a crush, don't be afraid to Tweet it from the rooftops. All forms of social media are welcome, and the more the better. We'll be tweeting with the #HottestTrainers2013, and we hope you'll follow along.
Of course, comments are encouraged, but anything mean spirited or offensive will be removed. In addition to being pretty damn sexy, our trainers are all really great people. Without any further ado, let the games begin!
