Welcome to the final poll of round one of our Hottest Trainers contest, in which Chicago's fittest and finest compete for your votes. Today's showdown pits a football-loving Southern blonde against a theatre-loving Pilates instructor.
Katy Kerr of the Dailey Method might be Chicago's most athletic mom, while Melissa McNamara of mind art core Pilates blew our minds when she admitted she's so flexible she can fold herself into a suitcase. They're both supremely inspiring, but only one can go on to round two. Vote below, and remember: The poll closes at 11am tomorrow.
