    Here is the text of the above video:

    Cody Montgomery is a bodybuilder and sponsored athlete from Alaska, United States of America. Since he began competing in bodybuilding in 2010, Cody rose through the ranks to become an IFBB Pro athlete – winning six out of six amateur shows prior to entering the Pro League.

    However, while Cody is an accomplished bodybuilder today, he didn’t always plan on becoming one. Growing up, Cody was more interested in American football than anything else. He was passionate about the sport so much, he planned on making it his full-time job.

    However, things started to change once Cody entered the gym for the first time. Initially, he began training with weights to improve his performances on the football pitch. But after seeing the results from weightlifting on his physique, Cody became ‘hooked’ on the bodybuilding lifestyle instead.

    Eventually, Cody abandoned football altogether, replacing it with his newly-discovered passion for bodybuilding. Throughout the years, he furthered his passion to become a professional IFBB Pro competitor and sponsored athlete. During the summer between his transition from 8th grade and his freshman year in high school, Cody achieved incredible progress on his physique.

    Motivated by his results, Cody began devoting all of his free time to weightlifting. His passion for football, on the other hand, gradually disappeared.Then, after several months of intense training in the gym, Cody was presented with a new opportunity. One day, while he was at the gym, Cody was approached by a man who owned a supplement store. This very person complimented Cody on his physique, subsequently offering him a supplement sponsorship if he would compete in a bodybuilding show.

    Without giving it much thought, Cody accepted the man’s offer. In Cody’s own words; “I, of course, accepted his offer and started preparing for that show… I was immediately hooked, reading all the mags and website content I could get my eyes on.”

    After weeks of preparations, Cody stepped on the 2010 NPC Europa Dallas stage, where he took home 1st place in the Teen category. From there on, Cody became even more ‘addicted’ to the bodybuilding lifestyle, as he said, "After I stepped on stage in 2010 for the first time, I knew it was me, what I had been searching for, it just felt right and I was hooked."

    What we can learn from Cody Montgomery, is that nothing in life is ‘set in stone.’ Cody initially taught it was his destiny to become a professional American football player, but in a turn of events, he became a professional bodybuilder instead.

    His story shows us that we should welcome new opportunities in life, even if that means sacrificing other ones in its stead. By doing so, it’s possible to reach heights you never thought were possible – just as Cody Montgomery did.

    Peter McGough did an article in 2015 that explains what Cody went through. A shout out to PJ & Aaron for helping him at a time he might otherwise have left bodybuilding.
