Eight contestants later, we're finally ready to vote for Chicago's hottest trainer! With an uneven number of guys and girls, we've split the competition into two semi-random groups. One set competes starting today, another set competes starting tomorrow. Next week, the winners from each Round One poll will compete against each other in Round Two, and on Wednesday we'll crown our ultimate champion.
In today's heat: Gina Caifano, Angie Shriner, Liu Gross, and Jon Colborn. Click through the gallery above for a refresher on each contestant, then let us know who you think deserves to go on to the next round.
Note: Each poll will close 48 hours after it's published, so you have until 12pm on Saturday to vote for your favorite trainer from this group.
