Forget actors, models and singers. Athletes, hands down, have the hottest bodies on the planet. In celebration of their chiseled and awe-invoking forms, ESPN The Magazine rounded up 22 of the most rock-hard athletes for their annual Body Issue.

From Pro snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler and Olympic gymnast Alicia Sacramone to Olympic Gold medalist sprinter Natasha Hastings, St. Louis Rams’ Steven Jackson and star soccer goalkeeper Tim Howard, each athlete is profiled in all their glute-tastic glory. “It’s a huge honor to be grouped in with some of the most amazing and skilled athletes in the world,” snowboarder Gretchen stated. “Celebrating men, women. Every different kind of body, every different kind of sport and showing that everything is beautiful in a very athletic way. I want to be strong and I want to be badass and I think we accomplished that.”

ESPN the Magazine: Body Issue, is in stores and features four different covers. Gretchen graces the cover of one, while  U.S. soccer goalie Hope Solo, Los Angeles ClippersBlake Griffin and New York Mets’ Jose Reyes don the other three.

Check out the athletes working up a sweat in the video and peep some more photos from the Body Issue below. Yum!
