Jay Barnett recently joined Inside Fitness 360 as a sought after youth leadership and mental well-being mentor.  After his lengthy tenure 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: TheMeProject and TheWeProject which serves at risk teens, ages 13-18.  Working with Jay, teens developed self-esteem, self-worth, value for their bodies and strong mindsets.
