I don't know about you, but when I think about getting in shape, nothing motivates me more than paying money to have an ultra-ripped felon yell at me while I struggle to do more than four push-ups without collapsing. That's why I'm signing up at ConBody - the fitness studio run by ex-convicts who teach you how to get in shape...prison style. So, are you ready to say goodbye to those wimpy, ultra plush gyms with their smoothie bars and saunas and ready to spend your evening at your very own simulated cell at Riker's instead? Hell yeah!
Ripped inmates. You've probably noticed how incredibly ripped some prisoners are. Sure, they get to spend some time working out in the exercise room each day, but the majority of their workouts are done within the confines of a small, concrete cell.
Fitness bootcamp. So, if you're interested in getting in shape with a prison-style workout, why not learn from someone who has real life experience? Introducing ConBody, the gym run by ex-cons.
Saks Fifth Avenue. Sure, the idea sounds a little strange at first. But a lot of people are taking notice and becoming fans of this unique exercise program. If you want to check out the studio in person, it's located at the prestigious Saks Fifth Avenue building in NYC.
Coss Marte. Coss Marte is the brains behind the operation. A former inmate himself, he did some serious time for drug-related offenses.
Helping former inmates get back on their feet. Marte doesn't hire just anyone to be a fitness instructor at ConBody. He looks for motivated, responsible former inmates who need a head start getting back on their feet.
Check out the reviews. While researching this article, we looked through several pages of reviews, and people seem to legitimately enjoy working out at ConBody. It sounds like a lot of fun, and it's a good workout.
Only $1 to join. You can sign up for as little as $1 a month. They also offer virtual personal trainers so that you can work out from the comfort of your own home from anywhere in the world.
Working out in a small space. The workouts are based off of the sort of regimens that prisoners stick to while they're incarcerated. So, you don't need a lot of space to tone up, which is convenient if you have a small apartment and still want to work out from home.
