Richie Contartesi was picked on his whole life because he did not fit in. He understands what it feels like to be bullied, deal with anxiety, depression and even suicidal thoughts.
At 12 years old he had one mentor who picked him up and showed him how to handle and overcome bullying and his life changed forever. 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 travels the country helping other students overcome their challenges so they can excel in their lives. Someone changed Richie's life and now he helps the future generation improve theirs by sharing actionable takeaways, humor, and his real life emotional stories students will never forget.
Students leave Richie’s program encouraged, empowered, and ready to take action.
