At almost 300 pounds, Tara Costa would have never dreamed of competing in a triathlon of any distance. That was before Costa auditioned and made it on the NBC show
The Biggest Loser in September 2008.
Since that time Costa has lost over 155 pounds and is ready to take on the challenge of the Revolution 3 Triathlon Series.
"I am thrilled to be working with Tara - I have a tremendous amount of respect for what she has accomplished. I look very forward to guiding her training as she begins the journey of accomplishing her next goal, completing the Rev3 Triathlon Series" states Rev3 Coaching CEO Heather Gollnick
After losing 155 pounds in 18 weeks, Tara became a role model for the millions of viewers that watcher her transformation on NBC, now that the show is over Tara continues to share her message of being able to do anything. "I want to encourage people to do things they never thought possible, and motivate them to lead a healthy lifestyle," she says. "Participating in these triathlons is a great way to lead by example."
