Welcome to our first annual search for Miami's hottest fitness trainer! We took on the daunting task of sifting through all of our reader submissions, overanalyzing abs, pecs, biceps and buttocks, and have narrowed it down to eight super steamy yogis, dance instructors, CrossFit buffs, weight trainers and much, much more.
We'll be profiling each contestant over the next two weeks, providing you with all the steamy images and information you'll need to cast your votes starting Thursday, August 21. We'll be dividing the contestants into groups, and will continue to pit them against each other until just two remain standing. They'll face off, and one will be crowned the ultimate champion.
Promoting your favorite trainer via social media is key, as our friends over in New York, LA and San Francisco learned last year, so if you have a crush, don't be afraid to shout it from the rooftops via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We'll be tweeting with the #HottestTrainers2014 hashtag, 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 smoking hot, our trainers are all really great people. And now without any further ado, whip out your fans because this competition is firing up... now!
