Welcome to the final stretch of Racked Chicago's search for Chicago's hottest trainer. Over the past two weeks, we've been profiling smoking hot candidates who work at local gyms and studios. (Not only do they look hot in spandex, but if you take their classes, you might someday look nearly as good.) Once we've introduced everyone, we'll host a March Madness-style showdown in which you get to vote for your favorite.

As a native Chicagoan, Tracy Panfil is proud to rock untamed energy that allows her to lead a busy lifestyle in the Northern 'Burbs and teach a whopping 9 classes per week. Her passions are competing in local bike races, hiking and endurance training especially during the off-season.
Now as an indoor cyclist, Tracy aims to deliver a ride to her clients that inspires you to push yourself to a place where you can feel like you've achieved something. Though we asked if she yells a lot to spur clients to achieve a level of intensity, we're told as it states in her bio, she relies on music-- everything from current Britney hits to space age electronica to lightning rhythms from Jay-Z and Diddy.
