Ben Bergeron on The Power of Shared Sacrifice
59:43
Ben Bergeron is a former Ironman triathlete turned CrossFit Games competitor who now trains some of the fittest athletes in the world. Ben has coached his athletes to six world championships total, and is currently the coach to the reigning Fittest Man and Fittest Woman on Earth.

One of the things about Ben that impresses me the most is his approach to mental toughness with his athletes. Ben understands that while the mindset of a champion is uncommonly rare, it doesn’t have to be, and that every one of us is capable of unlocking it. He credits mental toughness as the secret to the success of his athletes, and it was fascinating to hear Ben’s unique perspective on the principles that make up a winning mindset.  

Ben has dedicated his life to helping others become the best version of themselves – a path that led him to expand from coaching to entrepreneurship. He founded CrossFit New England in 2007, where he coaches regular people on their quest to improve their fitness, health, and approach to life beyond the gym. 

Ben has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of people through his coaching, and you’ll notice very quickly in this episode that he brings an incredible level of passion to everything he does. If you’re interested in developing your mindset and mental toughness, you are going to love this episode with Ben Bergeron. Let’s go!

Mike McCastle on Leaning Into The Struggle & Redefining Human Performance
59:35

Mike McCastle is one of the most incredible achievers we’ve had the opportunity to speak with on the Keep Going Podcast – he’s a world-renowned endurance athlete, five-time world record holder, nationally acclaimed performance coach, and as you’ll hear, a dedicated philanthropist as well.

During his 11 year stint in the U.S. Navy, Mike founded the Twelve Labors Project.  Inspired by the mythological '12 labors of Hercules’, these challenges test his physical and mental limits with the ultimate goal of pushing the limits of human potential while inspiring others to explore their own capacity for greatness. 

To date, Mike has shattered the Guinness World Record for pull-ups in 24 hours, pulled a Ford F-150 for 22 miles across Death Valley, run 20 miles a day for 100 straight days, and flipped a 250-pound tire for 13 miles, among many other unbelievable feats. Mike performs these all of these challenges in the name of raising money and awareness for charitable causes like veteran suicide awareness and parkinson’s disease. 

When Mike isn’t training for his Labors, he trains a variety of athletes and teams with the aim of improving performance, mental strength, leadership and team cohesion. 

Our friend and former Keep Going Podcast guest Colin O’Brady sought McCastle’s help in training for his historic solo, unassisted and unsupported trek across Antarctica and man powered row across the Drake Passage. 

Mike is full of amazing insights into how to intensely pursue your passion, learn from failure whenever possible, and set personal standards – all things that have driven his success and the success of his athletes. You’re going to love this candid conversation with the inspiring Mike McCastle. Let’s go!

01:00:40

Our guest today on a very special episode of the Keep Going Podcast is our co-Founder and 7x Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady.

At age 44 and fresh off of his 7th Super Bowl win, Tom entered his 22nd NFL season this Fall after spending the majority of the offseason rehabbing from reconstructive surgery on his MCL. He has picked up right where he left off in the Super Bowl, throwing for 10 TDs and over 1,000 yards in the first three games of the season and diving even further into uncharted territory for an athlete his age. 

You’ll hear Tom speak candidly in this episode about how his daily habits enable him to continue to perform at the highest level, and it’s especially interesting to hear just how passionate Tom is when he talks about how the TB12 Method has impacted his life & career. 

Tom is now just a few days away from returning to New England to lead his defending Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers against the Patriots in one of the most anticipated NFL games in decades. So much has been made of Tom’s return to Foxboro recently, and he was open with us about what he expects from his long-awaited return and some of the emotions he’s feeling as he prepares to play the Patriots for the first time in his career. 

You’re going to love this incredible conversation with Tom Brady. Let’s go!

Charlie Coyle on Staying Positive & Managing the Demands of an NHL Season
41:03

Charlie Coyle has charted a unique path during his hockey career, having grown up in Weymouth, MA before playing college hockey at Boston University and ultimately being drafted into the NHL by the San Jose Sharks. He spent the first 6 seasons of his career playing for the Minnesota Wild before being traded to his hometown Boston Bruins in 2019.

The 2021-22 season will be Charlie’s third full season with the Bruins, and he will enter training camp this fall after spending the summer recovering from offseason knee surgery. As most hockey fans know, NHL players are often very quiet about the injuries they deal with during the season – and it isn’t until after the playoffs end that you hear about all the aches and pains the athletes endured during the season. 

Charlie is no stranger to the brutality of the NHL season, and has been coming into our TB12 Performance & Recovery Center in Boston for treatment sessions throughout each of the last three seasons. He understands that you can’t perform at a high level without a consistent focus on recovery, and has made pliability a key part of his preparation throughout the season.

Alex Honnold on Managing Fear & Living on the Edge
52:01
Our guest on today’s episode is Alex Honnold, the legendary professional rock climber whose free-solo ascents of America’s biggest cliffs have made him one of the most recognizable climbers in the world. 

Alex has a legendary mindset and an ability to push past fear that has enabled him to make a career out of climbing without a rope to protect him if he falls. If you’ve seen Free Solo, the Oscar-winning documentary that highlights his unassisted, free solo climb of El Capitan, then you know just how incredible that accomplishment was. 

Alex is a humble and hard-working guy who has found unparalleled success in a sport that requires him to risk death with every step he takes. He was never the strongest or fastest climber, and it wasn’t until he dropped out of college and spent a year living in his van in between climbs that Alex began to develop the resilience that has made him the greatest free solo climber ever.
 
He is also the host of the recently developed “Climbing Gold” podcast, which takes listeners on a tour through the history and evolution of climbing, from the early days of the lunatic fringe to today’s new generation of athletes. Check out Alex's Climbing Gold Podcast here.

This is a fascinating conversation about overcoming fear and loss on the way to finding your passion, and we think you’ll all enjoy hearing Alex’s incredible story in his own words. Let’s go!

Kevin Flike on the Day That Changed His Life Forever
50:05

Our guest today is former Special Forces Green Beret Kevin Flike. Kevin first came to TB12 in 2017 and has completed over 160 sessions with us to date. Kevin’s story is one of overcoming the odds at every turn, and we’re proud to have him in our TB12 family. 

Kevin was born and raised in Stillwater, a small town in upstate New York. After graduating from Union College (BA), he served as a Special Forces Engineer assigned to the 1st Special Forces Group and deployed to the Philippines, Thailand and twice to Afghanistan. 

On September 25, 2011, Kevin was on patrol with his team in the mountains of northwestern Afghanistan when a firefight broke out. After 10 hours of intense fighting, a Taliban sniper shot Flike in the stomach as he walked around the corner of a building – changing his life forever.

As you’ll hear, Kevin’s problems started with the physical: a fractured hip, loss of 20% of his colon, and a damaged femoral nerve. He would endure six surgeries marked by 40 inches of scars. As he worked towards a physical recovery, growing psychological and spiritual problems complicated his progress: depression, despair, addiction, anger, jealousy, and post-traumatic stress. 

After a life-altering conversation with his wife, Kevin began to ascend from the dark place he had been in – beginning with attending graduate school. In the Spring of 2016, Kevin completed dual masters degrees from MIT and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. 

We sat down with Kevin to hear about his early life, how his upbringing led him to the Green Berets, and how his experiences have forced him to adapt and take back control of his life.

Rapid Fire Friday with Plant-Based Pioneers Nicole Atchison and Tyler Lorenzen
20:00

Our conversation today is a special one, featuring the brother-sister duo behind Puris – the nation’s largest supplier of pea protein and Fast Company's #1 most innovative food company of 2021.

Nicole Atchison joined the family business three years ago as Chief Technology Officer after working in the medical device industry for several years. She leads innovation and business development across Puris’ portfolio of companies. Her brother, Tyler Lorenzen, is CEO of Puris Proteins, a joint venture with Cargill Inc. that manufactures and commercializes pea protein and other products.

Today, PURIS manufactures a spectrum of non-GMO, plant-based ingredients made from soy, pulses, lentils and corn. Puris sources only the highest-quality organic plants and extract 100% of the nutrition from each: protein, starch, sugar, fiber and more.

By going beyond protein to embrace every part of the plant, Puris squeezes more goodness out of everything they grow. That means less waste and environmental impact and lower costs to produce great food.

This is a fascinating conversation all about their endeavors into plant-based nutrition, the quest for a more sustainable food ecosystem, soil health, and the future of nutrition. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Let's go!

Colin O'Brady on Facing Earth's Toughest Challenges
01:18:51

Raised in Portland, Oregon, Colin spent his childhood exploring the mountains of the Pacific Northwest and cultivated a passion for adventure in the outdoors. He was recruited to swim at Yale University where he graduated with a Bachelors in Economics in 2006; not long after, Colin suffered a tragic accident and was severely burned in a fire while traveling.

His injuries covered nearly 25% of his body, primarily damaging his legs and feet. Doctors warned him he might never walk again normally. He set himself a seemingly impossible goal: to complete a triathlon.

A mere 18-months after his accident, he placed first overall at the Chicago Triathlon. 6 years later, Colin would attempt to complete a prestigious mountaineering challenge – the Explorer's Grand Slam – in world record time. 

With grit and perseverance, Colin continues to shatter records and inspire explorers everywhere. He lives by the mantra, “Change your mindset, achieve anything” and recently started a non-profit, Beyond 7/2, with his wife Jenna – their mission is to inspire kids and their communities to live active, healthy lives and pursue their biggest dreams.

Robert Owens on Defying Age in the Pursuit of Longevity
01:07:41

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
42:23

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
55:51

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
16:10

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!

Not only is he known for being America’s greatest extreme bowhunter and Under Armour’s longest sponsored athlete, but also for his dedicated training regimen that prepares him for his backcountry bowhunts.

In this thrilling conversation, Cam talks about:

  • Being alone in the wilderness
  • Running a marathon every day
  • Finding growth outside of comfort
  • Honing his craft through consistency
  • Living in the present

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.

George began racing as a young boy in Queens, New York, when his father introduced him to the sport. He competed a record 17 times in the Tour de France, raced in five Olympic Games, and won three U.S. National Road Race championships – unparalleled longevity in the sport of cycling.

He notably served as the “domestique” on many of his Tour de France teams – a position that is often recognized as the ultimate team role in cycling. George sacrificed personal glory and success for that of his team and teammates, and it’s fascinating to hear him talk about his experience on the team side of an individual sport like cycling. 

Though he retired from cycling in 2012, Hincapie has found sustained success in the business world – most notably as the co-founder of Hincapie Sportswear and the Hotel Domestique. His story is a fascinating look at the grueling world of cycling and what it truly takes to achieve longevity.
