Coss Marte made an unbelievable transformation from an overweight drug dealer running a million dollar operation, to a prison inmate, to a successful fitness entrepreneur. As Founder and CEO of ConBody, Coss dedicates his life to making the world a healthier place through his one-of-a-kind fitness program while also granting second chances to those who need it most. Today he shares his personal story. He also talks about his always trust the process mantra, and reveals why he felt free for the first time in solitary confinement.

- How to stay optimistic in times of doubt
- Making changes within your community
- Learning to embrace your past mistakes
Coss Marte’s mission is to bridge a gap between two communities: young professionals and formerly incarcerated individuals. Coss developed this unique and effective exercise program without the need for any equipment while doing his time…and now he helps you to do yours. While serving a sentence in his 9’x6′ prison cell, he lost 70+ lbs. in just six months. From that experience, Coss refined a unique fitness program combining fun cardiovascular, aerobic, and running exercises and now he has brought this exercise program back to New York City.
Coss is dedicated to helping people live healthy lifestyles through his exercise programs. He is genuinely and fully interested in the successes of his clients and will do whatever it takes to help them reach their fitness goals. This includes creating a personal relationship with every bootcamp participant and helping them set achievable short-term and long-term goals. He also keeps in constant contact through texts and emails to provide ongoing motivation. Coss is so much more than a personal trainer; he’s a friend on your fitness journey who has been down this road before.
