About Nicole Costa...
I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida, and graduated from the University of South Florida in 2001 with a B.A. degree in Public Relations. My love for fitness began as soon as I stepped into the USF gym on my very first day of college. I was immediately hooked, and spent every free moment in between classes at the gym.
In 2004, I moved to Miami for a job in Corporate Sales at the luxury health club in the Four Seasons Hotel on Brickell Avenue. It was there, soon after moving, where I met my husband, and realized quickly that he was “the one.” We have been married for over 15 years, and have 4 beautiful children, ages 16, 12, 10, and 3. In 2013, we moved back to Tampa in order to provide a safer and more family-friendly environment for raising our children.
I have competed in 4 NPC figure competitions since becoming a mother, placing "Top 5" in 2 of them, and I understand the demands and organization that eating healthy and exercising places on one's schedule and life, especially as a parent. Although, I have devoted the last 16 years primarily to raising my children, I have also managed to; train clients, teach group fitness, share my story at public speaking engagements, and use social media as my main platform for marketing & to connect to and inspire others. I am also currently certified as a Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
The time has come, however, for me to embark on a new journey that I will share publicly in Autumn 2022. After 24 years in fitness, it is time to evolve into a new role that will combine my college degree and industry experience into another passion of mine. I hope you will continue to support and join me in this new endeavor! Stay tuned!
