The Fortitude of a Champion

How to Get It. How to Apply It to Your Career and Life.

Bobby and Kristin Labonte have both reached the highest levels of success as professional athletes, and they’ll be the first to humbly tell you that their successes were possible because of two things: teamwork and fortitude. Audiences connect with this dynamic husband-wife duo and are delighted at the yin and yang of Bobby and Kristin’s personalities as they share stories from their decorated careers, lessons learned along the way, and how they now apply what they learned as athletes to drive success in business.

Kristin won her first horse show national title at age thirteen, and in the years that followed she earned an NCAA D1 collegiate swimming scholarship where she competed at the national and international level. After college, Kristin turned her passion for winning to triathlon, and then professional cycling – first earning All-American honors, then three US Masters Cycling National Champion Titles and a World Championship in the final race of her decorated athletic career.

For thirty+ years, Bobby has been a highly-regarded professional athlete and corporate spokesperson. With wins at the highest level of NASCAR, including a NASCAR XFINITY Series Championship, an IROC Championship, and the 2000 NASCAR Cup Series Championship driving Number 18 for Joe Gibbs Racing, Bobby was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2020.

Kristin holds an MBA from Duke University and leads in business today. With courage and drive, she looks at every opportunity with curiosity. She explores winning scenarios and then uses her talents to pull together a team committed to excellence. She’s not intimidated by adversity either. Challenges become opportunities to showcase her skills as a brilliant strategist.

Bobby’s success continues off the track as well. His tenacity and resilience allowed him to rise from a kid in the garage sweeping floors to a racing champion, and now a sought-after television racing analyst and magnetic brand ambassador. He’s grounded and relatable, making him an ideal partner for national brands and he brings his compelling charm to every event!

Together, they run Breaking Limits, a brand strategy and experiential marketing agency, and the Bobby Labonte Foundation, which has raised more than $1 million for organizations that support children and families.

Kristin & Bobby are fierce competitors who are driven to succeed, and the Labonte’s most impressive wins today are fueled by their mutual respect for each other, their dedicated teammates who are inspired by these two champions every day, and well-earned fortitude!
