Cody Nix served in the military from 1990-2013. Upon joining the Army, Nix was an infantry member from 1990-1997. In 1997 Nix served as a Reserve Military Intelligence Interrogator until 2000.
From 2000-2013 Nix served as a member of the US Army Special Forces, also known as “The Green Berets,” as a Special Forces Engineer until he retired (2013).
During his time in Special Forces, Nix completed numerous overt and covert combat deployments throughout the Middle East, the Balkans, and Africa. He received several awards including the Combat Infantry Badge, Bronze Star, and Purple Heart.
From 2010-2013 Nix finished his years in the Special Forces as the Combat Developer for Special Forces Tactical Ground Mobility. During this time he was responsible for planning procurement and sustainment with a $630M budget for all conventional and unconventional vehicles. During this, he also managed, developed and wrote vehicle requirements for US Special Operations Command in coordination with Navy Special Warfare Command, Marine Corp Special Operations Command, and Air Force Special Operations Command.
Upon retirement from the US Army, Nix accepted a job opportunity with Hendrick Motorsports to develop and manage a new division, Hendrick Dynamics, with the mission of transferring racing technology and processes into military vehicles to solve problems for the warfighter. Since conception, Hendrick Dynamics has developed and deployed niche combat vehicles, clandestine vehicle systems, and other material solutions to US personnel around the globe.
While serving as a Green Beret, Nix found that he had a strong interest in the psychological aspect of the mind’s conditioning and reactivity during combat operations. Naturally, physical fitness was an integral part of being a Special Forces Operator.
Upon retirement and Nix’s reentry into the civilian sector, Nix realized how his Special Forces training was applicable to civilians and how it could optimize potential in all aspects of someone’s life- from a stay at home mom to a CEO. This realization formed into a passion to share his knowledge and training to help everyday people reach their maximum potential in aspects of their life.
