Miss America's leads field in final days of social media vote to determine finalists for National Personal Trainer of the Year

A high profile field of personal trainers have found themselves in a new position as they are the ones getting cheered on by their adoring fans. This group of trainers, which include TV personalities, social media influencers, beauty pageant trainers, and even senior citizen motivators have been nominated by their peers, fans and community members for the 2017 National Personal Trainer of the Year Award in honor of them making a positive impact in their respective communities. The award, presented by Greatmats is part of Greatmats' 3rd Annual National Award Series — designed to recognize trainers and instructors who best represent the virtues of Service, Integrity and Quality.

Supporters of these seven personal trainers and their efforts are taking part in a social media vote on Greatmats' Facebook page which runs from Nov. 16-30 to determine the two finalists for the award.

The winner will receive his/her choice of gym flooring or a cash option, courtesy of Greatmats.
