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.
Lean, mean queen of the bike, Antonia De Santis is originally from New York and found her early career on Wall Street in the pressures of the world's financial epicenter. After 15 years of all that jazz, she left the bustle to pursue her passion in fitness. With a selfless motivation to help her clients become healthier and improve their lives, Antonia achieved her certification as a Mad Dogg Athletic instructor, as well as a certification with the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America.
Antonia 's known for her track record in marathon running and her participation in multiple triathlons, including the famed NYC marathon and the cray Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in San Francisco. If that weren't enough already, she also is trained in dance and choreography, having been a founding member of the Golden Eagle Dance Team of Boston College.
