Even though Cody has coached athletes of all sports, he is most dedicated to working with the sport that he knows best, dirt bike racing.Cody grew up racing dirt bikes in the GNCC off-road series. It was with the right training program and a strict diet that he was able to win a total of 5 class Championships, 3 of those being AMA National Championships during his career. With Cody’s education and experience as a racer, he is now able to teach dirt bike racers the importance and effectiveness of a well-rounded strength training program.
