How To Get A Fit Body This Summer With CONBODY @ Kimpton Ink 48!By Delaina Dixon | June 27, 2018 | Fitness, Lifestyle
Hello Divas! Here’s how to get a fit body this summer — With CONBODY! In my quest to try all types of exercise classes this season, I discovered this workout held on the rooftop of Kimpton Ink 48 on New York City’s West Side.
What is ConBody?
This hot fitness trend is the brainchild of Coss Marte, who spent several years in incarceration. Yes dolls, this is is a real-life prison yard-inspired workout!
First to know, when I arrived on the scene I quickly learned that ConBody has some pretty devoted followers. One gal told me this was her first workout of the day. She goes to ConBody twice daily. Her body certainly showed it. ConBody founder Coss actually taught this morning’s class.
What are the moves in ConBody?
Coss started us off with drills, jumping jacks, pushups, etc., the rock-solid basics that get you pumping. We then did drills across the “yard”: a series of sprints, lunges and crawls. I was pretty much contorting my body in a ton of different ways to push it harder.
Next, we made a circle and did rounds of calisthenics in a wave pattern, adding on a rep after each person in the circle had finished a round. I literally thought the kid next to me was going to lose his breakfast! But with the mentality of what doesn’t break me makes me stronger, he persevered.
How long is a ConBody class?
It’s not hard to do time with ConBody as workouts last between 23 to 45 minutes. At the end of ours, we all had to “bus our way” (per a low duck squat) to Coss and give him a high five for surviving our “sentence” and coming out better and stronger. Coss has a pretty clear vision of why he started ConBody and how he’s helping others – but I’ll let him tell it below.
