CONBODY, developed by former inmate Coss Marte, is the ultimate no-equipment, hardcore workout program. Using military-style bodyweight training techniques that he learned in prison, Coss was able to lose 70 pounds in six months with nothing but the walls and floor of his 9-by-6 prison cell. Now Coss and the CONBODY team bring their fat-torching, muscle-building workouts to you.
Are you ready to get insanely ripped?
COSS MARTE is the owner and creator of ConBody, a growing gym and fitness business based on bodyweight and inspired by prison workouts. He was a Lower East Side drug dealer running his own crew and making bank before he turned his life around and became a legal entrepreneur committed to helping others get healthy and breaking down stereotypes to help other ex-cons like himself have a second chance at life.
