A recent graduate from the University of Maine, Cody has been part of Maine-based athletics for as long as he can remember. Throughout his high school years AT Oceanside High School he was captain of both wrestling and track & field teams and, upon graduating, frequently returned to help the new athletes by volunteering to run their team workouts. Cody attended the University of Maine where he spent three years working as a personal trainer at the New Balance Student Recreation Center. His time there gained him exposure to working with a vast array of clientele and numerous learning opportunities from other trainers. Eager for more experience and progression, Cody soon began an internship with the University’s Strength and Conditioning Program where he took on a more involved role in developing Division 1 athletes from many different sports. During this time he also had the opportunity to work with coaches and trainers with many years of experience in training collegiate-level athletes. Cody is looking to establish himself as an Athletic Development Coach and progress and educate local athletes by using retained skills, coaching mechanisms, and principles instilled in him by his own coaches. Aware of the impact his coaches had on him, he hopes to impart those same values to the athletes he gets to work with and, in turn, progress athletics through the State as a whole.
