About The Author
Hey there! I’m Cody Abell. I’m not going to assume that you know
who I am so I’ll give you a bit of a rundown of my background.
In 2011 I got into lifting and fitness to improve my health and general
well-being. Around 2014 I joined a CrossFit gym and dove headfirst into
pursuing CrossFit as a sport. In 2016 I had become a bit burnt out on
CrossFit as a sport. We’d recently moved to the Raleigh-Durham area of
North Carolina and I saw a Strongman contest. Signed up. Hired my good
friend Will Hall as a coach. Trained for about 8 weeks and did my first
Strongman contest as an Open 175. I had an absolute blast in training and
competing. I fell in love with the process. Went all in. In 2017 I competed a
few more times, one of which was at the first Official Strongman Games.
In 2018, I won my first state title, North Carolina’s Strongest. I also
qualified and competed at the North American Strongman Championship
taking 3rd as a relative unknown. Since then I have podiumed at North
American Nationals again, competed at the Arnold Classic 3 times and at
the Official Strongman Games (OSG) 4 times.
I love competing. Competing, especially in Strongman, it allows me to be
every version of myself. Which shifts and morphs moment to moment. I
love the training, the build-up, the weight cut, the travel logistics, changes
in events. I love every bit of it. I am addicted to it.
What I am hoping for mostly is that if all else you too discover the fun and
joy of competing, especially at ANY level much less at Nationals.
