While serving a prison sentence in his 9’x6’ cell, Coss Marte found his calling in developing a unique and effective exercise program without the need for any equipment, effectively shedding 70 pounds in 6 months in the process. He founded CONBODY fitness studio in New York City, which gives you prison-style workouts that can be completed anywhere, anytime, and without shoes.
While the program has many success stories, CONBODY’s real message is about prison reform and combatting stigmas that society puts on ex-cons. He hires other former inmates who have turned their lives around through fitness. Their mission is to bridge a gap between two communities: young professionals and formerly incarcerated individuals.
