Cody was never public about his battle with covid. However, he did speak out against lockdowns in August last year. 

‘Making the most of Aussie lockdown. We can’t train at our pool all week,’ he wrote next to a photo of himself posing at the beach. 

‘But more importantly most people have had to shut their businesses,’ he added.

‘It’s a curious and complex argument but I hope the world can open again soon and we can go back to normal life.’

The Gold Coast native, who has a reported net worth of $6million, suggested that government officials who order lockdowns aren’t suffering like everyday Australians.

‘If politicians and bureaucrats had to sacrifice their salaries or take pay cuts during lockdowns, I wonder how long they’d last? Food for thought,’ he asked.  

Cody went on to say ‘the best armour we have is a healthy lifestyle and sustainable decision making’.

He also suggested ‘fear’ was being used as a ‘weapon’ to destroy ‘freedom’, and urged his followers to ‘turn off the news and go outside!’

Cody says he is training in the pool nine times per week up to two hours a day while doing three intense weight sessions for 90 minutes each.
