SPEAKER | AUTHOR | MENTOR
Jay Barnett joined Inside Fitness 360 as a sought after youth leadership and mental well-being mentor. After his time in the NFL, Jay has made it his mission to lead and guide today's youth through group programs and curriculum while providing encouragement, tools, resources and the support needed to begin the journey of evolving into the young men and women they desire to be.
With over 10 years of highly skilled and acclaimed mentoring and success stories, public speaking, business experience and most importantly, real-life, his view is radically different. Jay appreciates and shares with his mentees that leadership is a moment to moment choice and not about title and position. Leadership is for everyone - it's a choice and it's how we should live our lives.
Also, as a leader in the community, Jay serves as the senior consultant and Master Teen Mentor with his Sugarland, Texas based organizations: The Me Project and The We Project which serves at risk teens, ages 13-18. Working with Jay, teens developed self-esteem, self-worth, value for their bodies and strong mindsets.

Rukudzo H. Sithole, Founder & CEO
The visionary behind the Inside Fitness brand, Rukudzo saw a void in the mental health space that went beyond clinical counseling. People needed healing and practical tools and resources to cope with and change their life. He redefined the 'person-centered' approach to counseling to make sure that all of his clients felt accepted and loved in a non-judgmental, therapeutic atmosphere, where healing resides.
Formerly, Rukudzo co-founded a mortgage software company and consulted mortgage and financial companies to improve systems and install his software.
Not only is Rukudzo a Licensed Professional Counselor, Supervisor and Professional Life Coach, but he is also an international speaker, consultant/advisor to high profile and prominent celebrities and business individuals.
