”NO MATTER HOW AMAZING THE MECHANICAL DESIGN OR FUNCTION OF A SYSTEM, IF THE FUEL SOURCE IS MISAPPROPRIATED FOR THE VEHICLE THE REST IS JUST FANCY JARGON AND DESIGN.”

COACH & ENGINEER (NASA)

Cody Wayne Burkhart is classically trained in both Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder and works as a Robotics Design Engineer for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). He has taken his passion for Engineering, Math, and Science and applied it to movement paradigms, biomechanical analysis, programming, and coaching of athletes. Cody is a head coach for the Athlete Cell, the owner/head trainer of the 1884 CrossFit affiliate out of the Denver Athletic Club and a head trainer at CrossFit Anomaly in Centennial, Colorado. Athletically, Cody holds multiple black belts in varying martial arts with his highest rank of 3rd Degree in the art and science of Taekwondo. In his Taekwondo career, he was the captain of the ArtSports Taekwondo Demo team as well as a nationally competitive and repeat Colorado state grand champion. After Taekwondo, Cody experienced as much sport as possible including being a varsity Cheerleader for the University of Colorado at Boulder and a participant in the inaugural World’s Toughest Mudder. It was his interest in anaerobic threshold training for long distance events such as the 24-hr WTM that led him to pursue CrossFit, resulting in qualifying for the 2012 SouthWest Regionals and ultimately connecting with his mentor, Brian MacKenzie. It was through MacKenzie that Cody was introduced to 3Fu3l and it has dramatically increased his performance levels. He uses 3Fu3l daily because no matter how amazing the mechanical design or function of a system, if the fuel source is misappropriated for the vehicle the rest is just fancy jargon and design. While he still continues to push his own level of fitness, his desire to compete has changed to his new passion in the arena of athletic performance: to support the continuing growth of kinetics and kinematics in sport; thus allowing athletes to understand and increase the top end of their genetic potential.
