Bio


A seemingly “ordinary guy,” Ruben Gonzalez wasn’t a gifted athlete. He didn’t take up the sport of luge until he was 21. Against all odds, four years later he was competing in the Winter Olympics. At the age of 47, he was racing against 20-year-olds in the Vancouver Winter Olympics, becoming the only person to ever compete in four Winter Olympics each in a different decade.

Gonzalez speaks from Olympic experience. He teaches the personal effectiveness system he used to achieve success again and again in both the Olympics and in business. He is proof that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things if they will follow a few simple steps.

From Dubai to Toronto, from Hanoi to Cancun, from Singapore to Africa,Gonzalez has inspired and motivated audiences around the world. Gonzalez’s story takes people’s excuses away and fills them with the belief they need to achieve big goals.

His client list reads like a who’s who of Corporate America: Dell, Coca-Cola, Farmers Insurance, Ortho-McNeil, the Million Dollar Round Table, Oracle, Wells Fargo, Century 21 and even the U.S. Treasury Department.

Gonzalez has shared the stage with speaking legends Zig Ziglar, Denis Waitley and Tom Hopkins calling him a leader of a new generation of personal development speakers.

As a four-time Olympian and internationally recognized expert on developing mental toughness, Gonzalez knows how to achieve success again and again. A master storyteller, Gonzalez uses his Olympic experiences to inspire audiences to think differently, live life with passion and have the courage to take the necessary steps toward their goals— to push beyond self-imposed limitations and to produce better results.

Gonzalez has appeared nationally on ABC, CBS and NBC. He’s been featured in TIME magazine, The New York Times, as well as publications around the world. His articles on peak performance are read on every continent. His book The Courage to Succeed has been endorsed by Lou Holtz, Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard, Brian Tracy and Dr. Robert Schuller.

Armed with the same energy and dedication that he put into his athletic career, Gonzalez brings to audiences of all sizes and backgrounds a truly unique, truly memorable performance that teaches as it entertains and inspires as it motivates.

Because of his powerfully inspiring story, Gonzalez was selected to carry the Olympic torch at the Salt Lake City Olympics.

Gonzalez’s story of overcoming incredible challenges on the road to competing in four Olympic Games over the span of four decades goes right into the core of his audience’s psyche, filling them with the inspiration and self-belief they need to achieve their goals.
