Help us find the best personal trainers in Southwest Michigan by nominating your favorite.

Being a personal trainer is not easy.  They have to put their knowledge of the human body together with the correct workouts for each individual depending on their wants and needs.  Not to mention, they have to motivate us, no matter how lazy we may be.  They're always keeping their eye on our form and safety, even more so during this pandemic.

Since January 2nd is National Personal Trainer Day, and 90% of the population has a new year's resolution of losing weight or getting healthier in some form, let's find Southwest Michigan's favorite personal trainers.  For the sake of this poll "Southwest Michigan" will include the following counties only: Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Calhoun, St Joseph, Branch, Allegan, Berrien, and Barry.

Rules of this poll: One vote per person / per day.  Votes by bots and other 3rd party IP changers will be detected and removed periodically. Votes outside of Southwest Michigan are also at risk of being removed. Extreme abuse of these rules can lead to disqualification. Keep it real, legit, and local folks. Happy voting.
