Years of Participation

Cody is the owner and founder of GRIT BOX Fitness located in Charleston, SC and will be opening his second location in Summerville, SC this fall. GRIT BOX is a Kickboxing, Strength Training and Personal Training studio where he and his team have been building a strong community that serves people of all walks of life for the past 4 years. He believes that given the right set of tools and surrounding yourself with a supportive network of people, anyone can set big goals and crush them with confidence. Cody’s background in working with people with special needs has also carried over into his business through a program called Rock Steady Boxing. Rock Steady is a non-contact boxing inspired fitness program designed specifically for people Parkinson’s Disease. Every membership at GRIT BOX helps support the 75 fighters that are enrolled in his Rock Steady program.
As Cody continues to expand, his goal is to help more people find their way to a fun and exciting fitness routine that will help them stay motivated and hungry for more. This, along with a little bit of GRIT, is the secret to success for anyone in fitness.
As an entrepreneur, Cody is also the founder of Saltwater Cycle Party Boat Tours, and will be launching Chucktown Brew Tours at the end of the year. This illustrates his “work hard, play hard” philosophy in business.
In addition to his businesses, Cody sits on the board of directors for Charleston Hope, a local non profit that works to empower students and teachers in our local Title 1 schools.
He is a busy man, but Cody stays grounded as a dedicated husband and father. He attributes all of his success to the support of his wife, Cici, and he is driven every day by their 10 month old son, Colton.
