Welcome to Racked Boston's search for the city's hottest trainer. Over the coming weeks, we'll profile eight smoking locals—fitness experts who not only look hot in spandex, but can make you look amazing too. Once you've gotten to know everyone, we'll host a March Madness-style showdown in which readers vote for their favorites. Let the games begin!
First, the gents went head-to-head. Then the ladies had their day. And now, we're nearly ready to crown Racked Boston's Hottest Trainer! The winners of their respective polls, Ramon Garcia and Melinda Sarkis, are going up against each other in one final vote that kicks off, oh, right about now.
Be sure to refresh your memory by reading their profiles, linked above. And, like the previous voting rounds, the poll will stay open for 48 hours, meaning you have until Wednesday, August 27th at 2:30pm to choose your trainer. May the odds be ever in their Spandexed favor.
