Today’s Felony Friday guest Coss Marte shares a remarkable story with host John Odermatt. Coss starts by describing a childhood surrounded by drugs, so a life of drug dealing seemed inevitable. At the age of nineteen-years-old Coss was making more than $2 million per year selling illegal drugs using an elaborate delivery system. He reinvented how drugs were sold in his neighborhood and became the “Uber of the drug trade” before Uber even existed.
At the age of twenty-three Coss was convicted and spent more than 7 years in prison. During his incarceration doctors warned him that his cholesterol and weight placed him on a path to an early death. This information, combined with another an “aha” moment during some time spent in solitary confinement, motivated Coss to lose 70 lbs in jail and changed his outlook on life. Coss crafted a fitness program combining cardiovascular, aerobic, and running exercises while serving out his sentence. Upon his release he began teaching others how to do the same. With guidance from Defy Ventures, an organization that helps the formerly incarcerated become entrepreneurs, Coss founded a wildly successful fitness company, ConBody.
