LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#body–Coss Marte, CEO of CONBODY, fitness guru and thought leader on the subject of successfully reintegrating formerly incarcerated people into society, is a featured guest this week on the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian. The show is hosted by Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.
Marte was sent to jail as the ringleader of a multi-million dollar marijuana operation. He was also grossly overweight and warned by his physician that his lifestyle, if left unchecked, would likely kill him. Faced with this grim prognosis, Marte started to get in shape using the only tools he had – his prison cell and his own body weight. Within six months he lost 70 pounds and then replicated his successful formula of body weight exercises with 20 other inmates. After serving his time, he launched CONBODY, a prison-style bootcamp that has gained over 50,000 clients and hires formerly incarcerated individuals to teach fitness classes.
On the Impact episode, Marte describes his unique and effective exercise program that doesn’t rely on equipment. He also discusses his commitment to supporting people in making changes that result in reaching and maintaining fitness and lifestyle goals.
“Being interviewed by John Shegerian on the Impact Podcast further inspired me to continue my hustle and press forward with my business,” said Marte. “It also served as a reminder that transforming your hustle is doable for anyone coming out of the institutional system and all you need is the grit to do so. I really appreciate the opportunity to be on the show.”
“It was an honor to have Coss on our show to tell his incredible story and share the impactful work he is doing with CONBODY, which is sure to move and inspire our audience,” said Shegerian. “Coss’ efforts make him a truly powerful example of how one person can completely turn his life around and make a significant and positive difference in the lives of so many others.”
