As millions make those futile New Year’s resolutions to lose more weight or to work out more, one neighborhood gym is seizing the moment.
Prison cell bootcamp company ConBody is on the move again. Indeed, less than a year after proprietor Coss Marte – a former drug dealer who served four years of a seven-year sentence – opened the gym at the 38 Delancey condoplex, he’s already scored a new home. As of January 1, the studio now calls 294 Broome Street home. No more shared real estate. The signage and fanfare is already in place.
“We wanted to move into what is finally our own space,” a rep tells us.
As previously reported, ConBody specializes in “prison cell workouts” designed for small spaces. The routines are seemingly simple, yet effective. Basics include jumping jacks, squats, and mountain climbers.
Marte realized his ConBody dream thanks to additional investments from Defy Ventures, a non-profit that helps former inmates, and Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran ($100K).
