Coss Marte, creator and owner of Conbody in New York City, calls into the show and shares his inspiration for opening up a fitness studio that employs ex-convicts as personal trainers who carry out the company’s “prison style workout.” Coss tells us how he started dealing drugs at a young age and why the DEA now uses his case as a case study. Once Coss went to prison, he started exercising, turned his health around, and laid the foundation for Conbody. He tells us about his meeting with Saks Fifth Avenue and who some of his famous clients are. Coss’ story has been covered by Forbes Magazine, CNBC, The Men’s Journal, ESPN, and The New York Times to name a few. Watch Coss and his team on episode 11 of The Real Housewives of NYC and Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen (http://www.bravotv.com/watch-what-happens-live-with-andy-cohen/season-15/episode-97/videos/after-show-craig-dishes-on-the
