All for one, one for all


Inner Strength Training for Men


The primary mission of the Libertus Project is to reconnect today’s men with their innate strength so they can live powerful lives that honor their true, authentic selves.

The Libertus Project was born in Pittsburgh, PA by professional coach James “J” Stamatelos (second in from left). He specializes in helping individuals live from a strength-based perspective that allows them to overcome fear and pursue the things that matter to them most. The Libertus Project takes this vision to the next level by encouraging men to come together and communally challenge and champion to achieve more than each individually believes to be possible.


What We Believe


We can choose to live from one of two places: Love or Fear.

Love is the source of all Inner Strength. It assumes we are already whole, already complete, and can overcome any obstacle with ease. It is both brutally honest and deeply courageous. Love does not let us hide from ourselves or the world.  Instead, it compels us to live “out from within” and create from a place of genuine truth and unconditional self-worth.

Fear is the parent of Inner Weakness. It sees us as frail, fragile, and weak. No matter what Fear never has enough.  It’s the millionaire who still stresses over money or the beauty queen who can’t stop getting plastic surgery.  It gives us one consistent message – hide, fight, or flee, because you’re constantly at risk of being destroyed. There’s no authenticity here, only protection.

You are the source of everything you do. The job you pick, the person you marry, children you raise, hobbies you engage in, how you spend your nights – all of these are determined by your habitual choices between Love and Fear. This includes the most important choice of all: the relationship you build with yourself.

We at Libertus are on a mission to help men redefine the way the engage with themselves and the world around them. By developing a daily practice of Inner Strength they gain the power to repeatedly act from a place of Love and build a life that reflects who they are within.  It’s all about being yourself.
