Robyn Benincasa accepts full blame for inspiring people to do insane things like climb Mount Kilimanjaro, run their first triathlon, start their own adventure racing teams, or start their own businesses. This is, after all, who she is and what she does: Robyn inspires people to do amazing things.
Robyn has made an art form of extreme performance by competing and winning at the highest levels of sport and business. Revered as one of “California’s Fittest Women”, she spent her youth competing at the state and national level in gymnastics, diving, cross country, and judo in which she became a national champion. While consistently achieving top sales in her day job, Robyn completed six Ironman races, with two podium finishes.
In her 15-year career as a professional adventure racer, Robyn has competed in close to 40 expedition-length events, including Primal Quest and Eco-Challenge. She has biked through jungles in Borneo, climbed Himalayan giants in Nepal, trekked across lava fields in Fiji, rafted rapids in Chile – and racked up multiple world championship titles along the way. In her spare time, Robyn, is a full-time firefighter in San Diego, on the nation’s first all-female crew.
NBC, ABC, CNN, ESPN, USA Network, Discovery Channel, Outdoor Life Network, PBS and FOX have all featured Robyn and her amazing accomplishments. Add to those network credits editorials in Fast Company, Sport Illustrated, Vogue, Corporate & Incentive Travel, The New York Times, Outside, and Harper’s Bazaar.
Robyn launched World Class Teams and its sister company Flashover Seminars to bring her unique and inspiring perspective on teamwork to the corporate world via keynotes, seminars and teambuilding programs. Robyn also founded the Project Athena Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to helping women who’ve endured medical setbacks achieve their athletic dreams.
