I cant say what it is, but I, like the thousands of other people in this country, have an inexplicable fascination with crime-based television series. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raide...m-Draft-Jersey/ . In fact, much of my honeymoon was spent binge-watching the second season of Orange Is The New Black, and many late nights with my husband are reserved for Beyond Scared Straight reruns. Naturally, when I was introduced to ConBody, the NYC-based prison-style boot camp, I was intrigued.Yet, unlike my favorite fictional shows, the ConBody workout was inspired by a very real experience for founder Coss Marte. See, Marte is a former drug dealer who spent part of his youth in and out of the correctional system. He did his crime, served the time and is now looking to change ... not only the way we work out, but how the public views ex-offenders, and to give them economic freedom.Behind barsMy class with Marte began at 8 a.m., sharp. A group of flushed-face women, drenched in sweat, exited as I rang the bell to enter the studio. The space, which is located on Broome Street in Manhattans Lower East Side, are Martes old stomping grounds. This was the first [spot] that gave me an opportunity to rent with my criminal background, he says when we first meet.While serving a seven-year sentence (eventually reduced to four years), he masterminded the very exercises that now make up the class I was getting ready to join. I developed the moves from my previous incarceration, he says. I learned a combination of exercises from ex-Marines-turned-correctional officers through a program called Shock. Its a six-month military boot camp program that saves you two-and-a-half years from your prison sentence.Martes gym -- which he says was a dungeon, with no windows or ventilation, when he found it -- is now a well-lit white studio with black-painted fence lines, barbed wire and sketches of prisoners in mid-escape etched on the walls as decor.A workout developed in a 9-by-6 foot prison cell using no equipment -- straight bodyweight exercises -- couldnt be too hard, I thought.Boy, was I wrong.Lock downMy class of five was instructed to leave our belongings, including our shoes, in lockers just outside of the studio. Show off that pedicure! Marte says?playfully. Eyeballing the room, I was surprised to see a female-dominated class -- just one man and four women in total.Marte says the proportion is standard: A lot of females tell me that they dont like going into studios with a lot of equipment because theyre overwhelming. This is a tough cardio, strength-training program that feels doable. Plus, all you have to do is show up in comfy workout gear, no add-ons required. So, youre not jumping through hoops to participate in the classes -- which range from 30-minutes to a full-hour, at $30 per single session.Once the clock strikes 8, the sound of an iron gate slamming shut rings out. Then the warm-up begins. Fat Joe and Remy Mas All the Way Up serves as the soundtrack for our dose of cardio, which included jumping jacks, squat thrusts and glute kickbacks. Next, some floor-based ab work, followed by toning exercises, including scissor kicks and pushups.Doing the timeAfter a series of calisthenics during the warm-up (who knew simply standing up and sitting down for 30 repetitions could constitute as exercise), Marte introduced the real workout with more hip-hop tunes on rotation. I created some of the moves on my own, like the up-and-downs. The space that I was using in my cell was so small that sometimes I couldnt do a full squat, so I would sit down and stand up, and I realized -- thats hard!For the remaining 45 minutes of class, Marte created an eight-lap routine consisting of nonstop calisthenics, including mountain-climbers, planks, 10-second pull-up holds and more.?And as hard as it got with each lap, Martes encouragement throughout the class was helpful. And his own success story proves that the routine offers noticeable results. Prior to being imprisoned, the 5-foot-8 Marte weighed 230 pounds, had high blood pressure and sky-high cholesterol. He was even told that if he didnt slim down, there was a strong chance that he would die in prison. On his custom workout plan, Marte lost 70 pounds in the first six months of his sentence, a physical change that was life-altering.[When] I lost the weight, Marte says, my cholesterol and blood-pressure levels went back to normal. Obviously, I wasnt eating great in prison, but I started trying to increase [healthier] carbs and vegetables in my diet. And for ConBody regulars, Marte has hired a registered dietitian to offer nutrition advice for those in need of pointers. All of my trainers are certified trainers, but were not dietitians. For those who enroll in personal training programs, I refer them to our dietitian.Speaking of trainers, though I only experienced Martes class, it was interesting to learn that many ConBody instructors were formerly incarcerated, and others are close to the prison system in some way.?Having experienced the difficulty of securing a job with a tainted record firsthand, its Martes mission to help those looking to get back on their feet after serving time. We go into jails and prisons to train the inmates to become personal trainers through a correspondence program to help them get their ISSA [International Sports Sciences Association] personal trainer certification, Marte notes.The releaseOnce we cool down, the class finished with wall sits and a crab crawl toward Marte for a celebratory high-five -- a positive reinforcement that is far different from the instructors own experiences during their prison-based boot camp courses.Sometimes, well stop a class to tell the participants about the prison experience and the struggles that we went through, Marte says. Sultan Malik, a ConBody instructor, who had previously been imprisoned for robbery, tells his classes that if he could do seven years in solitary confinement, they should be able to handle this 45-minute class.We did these same workouts in a small space with nothing. Here, you have someone motivating you and a class of people that are pushing you. We try to build that camaraderie and social support, Marte adds.And unlike the real deal, Marte and his team encourage participants to take their mugshot after the workout as proof that they did the time.Marte, who receives what he calls fan jail mail, says that he regularly receives inquiries from prisoners looking to apply for positions at ConBody upon their release. And given that one in 35 adults in the U.S. have faced correctional control, including prison, jail, parole and probation, his service to the ex-offender community is much-needed.Marte says his goal is to create a platform so that the ex-offenders can be trained by a ConBody mentor via computer. I want to hit 100,000 people and employ 50 ex-cons [of varying offenses] by the end of next year, he says.Youll be able to choose your personal instructor based on their profiles on the studios website. These videos will tell the story of why they went to prison and why they want to change their lives, Marte says.Marte is also exploring opportunities to expand, starting within the New York City metro area and eventually branching out overseas.

The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raide...r-Draft-Jersey/ .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center. PHILADELPHIA -- In need of wide receivers, the Philadelphia Eagles acquired Dorial Green-Beckham from Tennessee.The Eagles traded versatile offensive lineman Dennis Kelly to the Titans on Tuesday to get Green-Beckham, a talented player who has struggled with consistency and been sidetracked by off-field issues.Obviously, hes made mistakes, Eagles personnel boss Howie Roseman said. Hes a kind-hearted kid and he has the right intentions. And that if you get a chance to really spend some time with him, youll see that. Hes not a locker room cancer at all.Green-Beckham wrote on Twitter: Philly here I come! Much love to all my teammates, coaches and fans in Nashville. Thanks for everything.Tennessee has lost two tackles to injuries since the offseason program started, so Kelly gives them depth behind left tackle Taylor Lewan and rookie right tackle Jack Conklin.Dennis was a guy that we thought would help our football team, that would make us a more competitive position group up there, Titans general manager Jon Robinson said. Hes played three positions. Hes started 15 games in the NFL at (left) tackle, guard and right tackle. So were looking forward to working with him.Green-Beckham was a second-round pick last year after he was dismissed from the team at Missouri and transferred to Oklahoma, where he didnt play a down. He caught 32 passes for 549 yards with four touchdowns and immediately becomes one of Philadelphias most accomplished receivers.He comes in with an opportunity, no promises have been made, Roseman said. We felt comfortable to bring him in here to compete. Hes physically gifted. Hes 6-5, hes 240, he runs a 4.4. Hes got a rare skill set.Now, theres a reason that hes available at this time. Hes got to gget more consistent. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raide...r-Draft-Jersey/. But for us and where we are in development, we thought it was a risk worth taking.Titans coach Mike Mularkey acknowledged a lack of consistency had been an issue with Green-Beckham.Ill say this, the inconsistency -- that was there, Mularkey said. We had many conversations about having back-to-back-to-back days. It wasnt like he wasnt trying, but it never clicked in.The Eagles best receiver, Jordan Matthews, is injured. They signed former Giants second-round pick Rueben Randle in the offseason to add depth, and they also have 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor and 2014 third-round pick Josh Huff.The Titans added three receivers in the offseason. Robinson signed Rishard Matthews as a free agent, drafted Tajae Sharpe in the fifth round and signed Andre Johnson at the start of camp.Still, the move caught some Titans players by surprise.Nobody in the locker room was expecting it, receiver Justin Hunter said. They definitely sent out a message today. I definitely do (see some urgency). I feel like everybody is on the chop block. Weve got a new GM and he didnt draft too many people in here. Anybody can go at this point, and were all fighting for a spot.Robinson said he wasnt necessarily intending to send a message.It wasnt a statement, Robinson said. It was just doing what we thought was best for the team. The NFL is a business, and again, weve said it since January, were trying to put the most competitive 90-man team on the field, and we think we did that today.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Youth NFL Jerseys China China Jerseys Wholesale Discount Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys 2020 Disocunt Football Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Gear Jerseys From China Disocunt Football Jerseys Discount Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
