Are you new to Racked? Curious about how our Hottest Trainer contest works? Here's the 411. Nominations for this year's competition started flooding our inbox after an initial open call at the beginning of July. Then we interviewed, photographed, and profiled sixteen contestants, eight men and eight women.
The first poll opened yesterday, pitting the eight male nominees against each other. The women's poll will open at noon today. Both polls are timed to remain open for 48 hours, meaning the men's poll will close at noon on Saturday and the women's at noon on Sunday. We'll take the two winners from the weekend and host a final championship poll from Monday, August 25, at 2pm to Wednesday, August 27, at 2pm. Remember, you can only vote once (per device) so use that click wisely. And if you don't see your hottie trainer on the list, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration for next year. (Please note: we can't repeat past contestants.) Good luck to this year's smoking sixteen, and happy voting!
