Biography

In 2009, Coss Marte was imprisoned as the ringleader of a multi-million-dollar cocaine operation. Overweight and warned by his physician that his lifestyle would kill him, he got in shape using the only tools available: His cell and his body weight. He quickly lost 70 pounds and taught his methods to other inmates. After his 2013 release, Marte founded ConBody (founded as Coss Athletics) bootcamp for health-conscious professionals, which has more than 2,000 customers. Marte’s bootcamp has been featured in Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health, and on CNN. He is the winner of Defy’s business plan competition, helping him secure $75,000 of a $100,000 equity round.
