Weight Loss Transformation Triathlon Story | Kris Pinnow

Taren Gesell

Kris Pinnow was nearly 375 pounds when he knew something had to change if he wanted to be around for his wife and daughter. He signed up for a weight loss guidance program through a local hospital in Wake Forest, NC, and on a whim, decided on giving triathlon a try with his new lifestyle and mindset. Now, down more than 100lbs and still going, Kris has raced several triathlons including 70.3 Puerto Rico, and he's signed up for a full IM race later this year.
