Reason For Becoming A Lifeguard: Was a great swimmer and had lost his parents in a car accident. Stephanie Holden was training some little ones in the pool and suddenly caught herself staring at Cody Madison, who was training in a swimming lane on another side of the pool. She was so impressed with his ability and speed that she talked him into joining Baywatch. She skipped the qualifying procedure and immediately placed him in Rookie School. She personally trained him. 
He found that lifeguarding was for him. He quickly learned of its importance and a lot of training procedures. Also impressed with Mitch Buchannon's record. He became one of Baywatch's best lifeguards.  
Used his technical skills to invent the Wind Jet, which is a speedy lifeguard boat with two wave runners housed on the back. He shared the copyrights and royalties with Baywatch.

Personal Premise: Let your strong dreams lead the way. 
Ambition: It was to make the US Olympic Team and compete. To give 100 percent toward lifeguarding. 
Frustrations & Chief Disappointments: An injury that prevented him from going to the Olympics still stings. It all came down to the matter of an unselfish choice.  Seeing all the hard work sink to the bottom after Stephanie personally coached him to the Olympic Swim Team. He chose to save a life that resulted in an injury. His Olympic dreams were shattered. He would never recover in time to compete. 
Losing C.J. Parker to a rocker tattooed type she had just met and quickly married during her vacation trip to Mexico. She never came back and later informed him of the news. He was frustrated and took it hard. 
Later he met a new lifeguard named Lani McKenzie. That haunting fear of losing her the way he lost C.J. resurfaced when Lani was chosen for an Inside Sports magazine shoot and cover. Cody feared that she would never come back. The way C.J. never came back. Although Cody had managed to make the first move to land Lani, his hard work to keep the relationship became strained when Lani found a job as a dancer. Despite Cody's visits to New York to see her, the relationship ended in what he feared most: Lani leaving him for a dancing career on the stage. 
Temperament: Pleasant and happy. Comfortable with his life and what he does for a living. Can get very vocal and determined when it comes to fighting for what he believes in.
