Cody Miller

Owner/Coach


Cody Miller has over 15 years of experience coaching physical fitness and strongly values a holistic approach to optimizing health. 

Personalized strength and conditioning layered on a foundation of quality sleep, nutrition, stress management, and mental hygiene.

Cody quickly became passionate about serving the broader general public over collegiate athletics while personal training to fund his bachelor’s degree in exercise science. He has since contributed to countless physical and mental transformations, rehabilitations, and competitive performance achievements of individuals ranging from children to older adults.

Cody also holds the Professional Barbell Coach credential through Barbell Logic and has been a staff coach since the company first began back in 2016. Cody also holds certifications through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Crossfit, United States Weightlifting, National Academy of Sports Medicine, and Starting Strength. 

Founding The Strength Parlor in October of 2019 was one of the most rewarding decisions he has ever made. Cody feels blessed to serve such a wonderful, diverse, and growing gym family brought together by a desire for personal growth and community. 

Outside the gym, you will find Cody spending time with his beautiful wife and baby boy, overthinking the scientific details of coffee brewing, traveling, and writing songs with his beloved guitar. 

 

Austin Dietrich

Coach

Austin’s fitness journey began in 2012 as a skinny high school freshman. He dabbled with various training methods but eventually found barbell training to produce the most favorable results. The pursuit of strength led to confidence and a training passion that is a shame not to share.

Austin thus began coaching in 2015 and eventually was led to The Strength Parlor in 2018. He now has seven years of coaching experience, a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science (Missouri Baptist University) and a Precision Nutrition L1 certification. Always the first to greet and consistently travel the extra mile for our community; The Strength Parlor is honored to have Austin!

Kevin Peters, PBC

Coach

Kevin has a long history of coaching and athletics. Once a collegiate Volleyball and Track & Field athlete, he has continued indoor and beach volleyball throughout his adult life. Kevin’s desire to compete and love for physical activity eventually led to eight knee surgeries and rehabs. The resulting and disappointing loss of strength led Kevin to seek coaching from The Strength Parlor in 2017. Experiencing the value of The Strength Parlor’s coaching and training methodology firsthand, Kevin dedicated himself to helping others and became a Professional Barbell Coach (Barbell Logic).

 

Prior to coaching, Kevin spent his professional career helping clients achieve their goals and solve their problems. He owned and operated an independent financial planning and consulting firm before moving to a Fortune-250 company where he currently manages a sales and consulting team.  

 

Kevin enjoys working with a wide variety of people. Whether you are trying to be a better athlete, recover after surgery, squeeze self-improvement into a busy schedule or simply just feel better; Kevin has likely experienced something similar and would love to help! 

 

The Strength Parlor community values Kevin’s wisdom, clear communication and glorious beard!
