Cody Bidlow - About Me
My name is Cody Bidlow, and I started SprintingWorkouts.com and the ATHLETE.X brand to help athletes and coaches learn more about sprinting.
I have over 15 years of experience as a competitive track & field sprinter and coach, having worked with athletes ranging from youth athletes to professional sprinters, MLB players, and NFL players.
As an athlete, I had to pave my own path to figure out how to sprint faster. I did not have access to great coaching, which spurred my interest to research the best sprint training and strength training methods so that I could get faster.
After playing Football and running Track in high school, I went on to compete at Santa Barbara City College, and then transferred to Grand Canyon University where I ran track as a Division 1 NCAA sprinter. In my time at GCU, I was a part of the WAC Championship 4x100m team, and earned a Bronze medal in the 2014 Outdoor WAC Championships 100 meter dash.
Following college, I continued to train as a sprinter as well as coach. I took the position of First Assistant Coach at Santa Barbara City College, where I managed the training of sprinters, jumpers, and throwers, as well as being the strength & conditioning coach for the team. I went on to intern with ALTIS, where I worked with athletes like Andre Degrasse, Ameer Webb, Jahvid Best, and many other elite track athletes.
Over time I continued to create content for coaches and athletes on this website, the ATHLETE.X YouTube channel, and my Instagram profile, which each have nearly 50,000 followers and subscribers, as well as millions of views on my videos.
Currently, I am the head track & field coach at Arcadia High School in Phoenix, AZ, a coach at EliteU working with NFL combine prep athletes, and a personal coach for professional MLB athletes, track athletes, and a consultant for coaches around the world.
My Degrees & Certifications
I have a B.S. in Sports Management, I am certified in Strength & Conditioning through the USTFCCCA, and as a Track & Field Coach & Accredited Interscholastic Coach through the NFHS.
