From Olympic Games to World Championships, there is absolutely no shortage of amazingly hot female gymnasts.

When our team at TotalShape tried to come up with a list of the hottest gymnasts, we ended up in heated discussions trying to focus on balance beam vs. artistic gymnastics.

As we weren't getting anywhere close to agreeing on a list, we pulled in our readers and subscribers and asked for help on social media.

The result was thousands of votes, and after a few weeks of counting, we have a final list to share with you.

"I was terrified of Vault, like literally I hated it. I had a fear of running as fast as I could at a solid object, which is I think a normal fear to have because nobody would really want to do that. Once I got over the fear of running into the table I just kind of relaxed and now it's like autopilot. I love it."

Who's Your Favorite Gymnast?

Whether you prefer floor exercises or the acrobatics of uneven beams, one thing you have to admit is that all the above women deserve a spot on this list of hottest and best gymnasts.

And if you long to achieve a slim and sculpted build like these athletes, then my best advice as a fitness trainer is to start with working out five days a week and focusing on a strict diet and meal plan.

Once you have that locked in, you should be able to speed things up a bit with some of the best natural fat burners for women on the market. These aren't magic snake oil pills that promise to make you slim on the couch.

But by triggering faster metabolic processes, they can help you get slim significantly faster.
