A little over a month ago, we asked for your help to find Las Vegas' hottest trainer. From there, our panel of experts combed through tons of sweaty photos to select eight sizzling contestants.
Now, it's time to begin the voting process. Here's how it works: We've separated the competitors into two groups, with four vying for your vote in Round 1, which starts now. Next week, the winners from each group will compete against each other in Round 2. Then, we'll have the final face-off and crown one of them the Hottest Trainer in Las Vegas.
Let's begin with the first four contestants. First up, we have Lisa Balash, also known at the Kettlebell Bombshell, Ray Chargualaf of Revolution Fitness Evolved, Noelle Joye, creator and founder of EcoFit Method and Almas Meirmanov of Intermix Fitness.
In the gallery above you'll see a photo of each trainer, along with a link to their profile. After you've sufficiently stared at their muscles, head to the poll after the jump (Note: Each poll will close 48 hours after it's published).
UPDATE: This poll is closed.
