Robert Owens on Defying Age in the Pursuit of Longevity
Here at TB12, we always say that age is just a number. Our guest on today’s episode – Robert Hamilton Owens – is a master of the mental game and the fittest 67 year old on the planet.
Robert has lived an incredibly full and adventurous life, and has no plans of slowing down. A mere four days before his 66th birthday last year, Robert took on the SEALFIT’s Kokoro 50-Hour Challenge, a Navy SEAL-style Hell Week challenge that was originally created to train Special Operations Candidates. He was the oldest of the group by 25 years to finish, and at the same time became the oldest person to ever complete the challenge. His mental toughness is absolutely unmatched.
Robert spent the early part of his career as a US Air Force Pararescueman – the Air Force equivalent of a Navy SEAL – and was called upon daily to risk his life to save people trapped in life-threatening situations. His passion for adventure and endurance training has led him to complete an astonishing 12 Ironman Triathlons, and the World Marathon Challenge – a grueling event comprised of 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days.
Robert is a living embodiment of longevity and mental toughness – everything we strive for here at TB12 – and we think you’re all going to really enjoy our conversation. Let’s go!

Lindsey Vonn on Finding Purpose in the Face of Adversity
On today’s episode of the Keep Going Podcast, we sit down with Lindsey Vonn, who you might know as one of the most mentally tough skiers and athletes to ever perform on the big stage.
Born in Minnesota in 1984, Lindsey started skiing at age 7, but it wasn’t until she found her love for speed that she became the racing sensation we all know today. And it didn’t take long for her to start winning – and winning big – Lindsey snagged her first of four World Cup overall championships in 2008.
With 82 wins at her retirement in 2019, she was the all-time leader in women's World Cup race victories. She also won three Olympic Winter Games medals and eight world championships medals. As Lindsey says, once she started winning, her only goal was to win more often and do it faster.
A true competitor, Lindsey left it all on the slopes – her career was cut short due to the many injuries she suffered from her aggressive racing style. Now, a few years into retirement, she is only limited by the things she wants to do – and she is keeping busy – starting a production company and leading the charge at the Lindsey Vonn Foundation.
We enjoyed sitting down with Lindsey and learning more about what motivates her to keep going – let’s go!

Chris Carmichael on Mastering the Mental Side of Training and Coaching the Best in the World
On today’s episode of the Keep Going Podcast, we speak with Chris Carmichael, a former professional cyclist and the founder and CEO of Carmichael Training Systems.
Cycling influenced Chris in many ways over the years, learning skills as a young kid biking around Florida that influenced his career and prepared him to become a renowned coach down the line. Chris himself was a member of the 1984 US Olympic Team and part of the first American team (7-Eleven) to race the Tour de France in 1986.
After suffering a career ending injury while skiing, Chris channeled his passion for cycling into becoming a successful coach and entrepreneur, founding Carmichael Training Systems in 2000, making world-class coaching accessible to athletes of all ability levels. Through Chris’s leadership, CTS immediately established itself as the premier destination for personal fitness, nutrition, and life coaching; a leadership position the company has held throughout its 20-year history.

Venus Williams on The Fight for Equal Pay and Her Privilege Tax Initiative
Our guest on this very special episode of the Keep Going Podcast is Venus Williams! Venus is one of the all-time greats of women's tennis, having spent years atop the world rankings while ushering a new era of power and athleticism into the women’s game.
Not only is Venus an incredibly accomplished athlete, she is also a successful business woman and has done so much to be a strong advocate for women over the years.
Throughout the month of March, in celebration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month, Venus has launched an awareness initiative to spotlight the wage inequality issue, and unveiled a platform of resources for corporations and employees to address the matter on a grassroots level.
Women make 81 cents to the $1 that men earn on average, so Venus will be working to fill in the gap this March by implementing a #PrivilegeTax on her lifestyle brand EleVen by Venus’ website by including an option at checkout to opt to donate 19 cents for every purchase made. Here at TB12, we are joining her in the fight to close the gender pay gap by implementing the #PrivilegeTax on our own website and donating 19 cents from every purchase to Girls Inc. of Greater Los Angeles, a charity committed to inspiring girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
We hope you enjoy this short but impactful discussion with the incredible Venus Williams. Let’s Go!

Our guest on today’s episode is George Hincapie – one of the most recognized cyclists in the world, with numerous world championships, national championships, and professional victories to his credit.
