Ruben was awesome!! The attendees felt he was genuine and honest, while being totally inspiring. He is a world class athlete but totally relatable. One employee is currently training for an iron man competition and was feeling deflated lately. Not only did Ruben's talk inspire him, but he spent time with him after the talk. Guy said it changed his entire outlook. Highly recommend Ruben who spoke to our theme and made us all feel like Champions By Choice!!
