Over the course of the last month we have selected a group of nominees for each category and then had a group of industry experts make individual selections in order for us to remain as unbiased as possible.

From these we were able to put together the winners. Transformation & amateur winners were chosen for their ability to answer all questions in detail, and provide workouts & pictures. Other categories were selected for their outstanding contributions, quality, presentation, upsets and coverage.
