Cody Morris finds solace in training.
“In sports and life,” Cody said, “training is the one aspect you can control.”
Cody, a Pennsylvania native, grew up admiring an older brother who was then a strength and conditioning coach at Penn State University.
“From then on, it has been my life,” Cody said.
Cody attended the College of William and Mary, where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology. Between classes and studying the science of human movement, Cody served on the Tribe’s football offensive line, where he was a four-year starter, All-American, Atlantic 10 All-Conference, Offensive Lineman of the Year and, in his senior year, Co-Captain.
While Cody was known by teammates as “The Chosen One” for his accomplishments and being selected to suit up even as a freshman, he was also quick to redirect attention to the accomplishments of the entire team. The 2004 Tribe football team, where Cody played as a sophomore, is known throughout William and Mary circles as one of the greatest. It was that year, for the first time, the team reached the NCAA Division I-AA Semi-finals.
After college, Cody interned at William and Mary and Indiana University, where he worked with Olympic sports teams in various aspects of training, strength and conditioning. Keeping with family tradition and bringing his love for fitness and athleticism full circle, Cody became the Assistant Strength Coach at Penn State and assisted in the athletic development for both the men’s and women’s basketball teams.
“Training teaches athletes the hard work and dedication it takes to succeed,” Cody said. “These are the building blocks for the rest of their lives.”
Having fallen in love with Tidewater, Va., Cody returned to the region and worked with Velocity Sports Performance in Hampton and Prism Performance in York County before joining Tidewater’s team.
Cody’s certifications include First Aid, CPR, American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the National Association of Speed and Explosion (NASE).

“The ultimate satisfaction comes when you see someone achieve their goals.”
