We always love a good story, but a good comeback may be our favorite.  While serving a prison sentence for dealing drugs, Coss Marte, 30, developed a unique and effective exercise program without the need for any equipment. Using military bootcamp techniques as a basis (push ups, jumping jacks, and squats) for ConBody, Marte developed a custom exercise program which transformed his body and mind in the confines of his six-by-nine foot cell. During his incarceration he was able to lose seventy pounds in just six months, motivating  countless other convicts to follow him during his daily runs in the prison yard.  With studios in Midtown Manhattan as well as The Bowery, today Marte’s biggest objective is prison reform. ConBody hires formerly incarcerated individuals to teach classes, and the program offers on-line classes through Mission360 and ConBody Live.
