Who is

Richie Contartesi?


With the emergence of technology; time management, anxiety & depression, relationships, politics, motivation, and many other issues that are holding back our youth from becoming the best version of themselves and achieving their goals.

Richie understands what it feels like as a student who felt depressed, anxious, and over whelmed, but was fortunate to have a mentor who showed him how to overcome these challenges and now he helps students do the same.

Richie struggled until he found his first passion, playing football, and turned that into a full D1 football scholarship at Ole Miss standing a staggering 5’7″ and a hefty 150 pounds.

He went on to play Arena Professionally, wrote a #1 Best Seller, opened a franchising 24/7 functional fitness facility, and now every year as a youth motivational speaker he travels the globe working with hundreds of organizations and schools delivering inspiring, entertaining, and actionable keynotes to develop the younger generation thrive amidst adversity, mental health challenges, negative people, uncertainty, and change.
