Member Spotlight: Violeta Oganesyan

She’s quiet, but fierce. She’s consistent, but comes to multiple class times. And boy can she lift!

No matter the obstacle, she’s been a staple here at CFHV for a long time and I personally can say that she is excellently coachable- and that’s the key to success. Now, hear her story for yourself:

What’s your name?

Violeta

Describe your first work out here at Crossfit High Voltage:

My first workout at CFHV consisted of snatching and running. I think I was sore for a week straight after that workout. I had taken time off from lifting so getting back into it was not easy.

Before joining High Voltage, when did you know something had to change?

I wasn’t motivated going to a regular gym. I was used to working out with a team everyday so I knew Crossfit would be the next best thing for me.

Describe your most memorable CrossFit Experience so far.

Getting 165# on my clean during the open. I was stuck at the same weight for the longest time because I wasn’t lifting everyday

Outside of High Voltage, what kind of work do you do? Give yourself a plug!

I have a part-time job lifeguarding and coaching water polo for City of LA parks and recreation department. Also taking a break from school at the moment.

How has getting in shape changed your professional life?

My job requires me to do annual rechecks which consists of swimming and pulling a weighted dummy out of the water. Doing Crossfit has definitely made it easier for me to pass my rechecks.
