CODY MADDUX - CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
Cody Started doing CrossFit in March of 2012, while stationed on Fort Hood, Tx while in the Army. He initially started CrossFit to lose weight and fell in love with the training.
At the one year mark he had begun to train his friends for free out of his garage. Six months later he introduced CrossFit to his Unit and was called on to help create a fitness program that involved CrossFit for the troops he worked with. He taught Non Commissioned Officers movement standards and helped program a 6 month block of workouts.
In 2015 He finished his army contract and decided he would like to pursue a profession in CrossFit. He then received a CrossFit Level 1 Certificate in 2016.
His passion lies in seeing other people succeed. He loves to show extremely normal people that any workout can be modified to version that they can perform. No personal achievement excites him as much as seeing another human set goals, put forth hours of training and then reach that goal. He wants to help you become not only a healthier person, but a more driven person outside of the gym. Fitness transcends far from the walls of the gym, the gym is just the starting line.
