The High Voltage Fitness Story

Time seems to run away with itself, and as I am approaching my 20-year reunion, I can’t help but reflect on one of the funniest things from my senior year. As a senior, my teachers whimsically predicted I would one day replace our PE teacher. That notion seemed as likely as flying cars at the time. Yet, life has a way of turning the tides when you least expect it. When I started working out at Crossfit High Voltage over ten years ago, a dormant passion for fitness and coaching was reignited. The thrill of coaching grabbed hold of me after a year of training, and it hasn’t let go since. Witnessing members smash barriers they once thought insurmountable has become the fuel that drives every session I lead.

My perspective changed dramatically in 2019 when I met my future wife and with that perspective on coaching changed when I was challenged to see a world outside of my able-bodied bubble. Her resilience in the face of a life-altering car accident brought a new perspective into my life. Fitness, something I viewed as routine, was a daily challenge for her, filled with physical trials and emotional tribulations. Her experiences opened my eyes to the stark lack of inclusivity in the fitness industry-a world that often sidelines those who don’t fit a certain mold.

The real transformation for Crossfit High Voltage began during the tumultuous year of 2020 when the challenges of inclusion, racism, and the lack of equality could no longer be ignored. The death of George Floyd was incredibly polarizing for the community, and people I had considered friends took stances I couldn’t tolerate. As the community fractured and changes came about, I was given the opportunity to take over High Voltage.

When my partner and I took over, we envisioned a sanctuary for fitness that celebrated every body type, ability, and spirit. Our mission was clear: create a fitness haven where nobody feels out of place because of a disability or their level of fitness experience.

At High Voltage Fitness, inclusion is the cornerstone of everything we do. We strive to ensure that every member feels respected, valued, and recognized for their efforts. Here, it’s not just about reaching fitness goals but celebrating the unique paths we each take to get there. Whether you’re overcoming personal challenges or trying out a treadmill for the first time, your journey is as important as any.

Join us at High Voltage Fitness, the #1 Crossfit gym in Burbank. Here, every effort is celebrated, every journey is honored, and every member is an integral part of our vibrant community. Let’s make fitness a joyous part of your story.

I was always intimidated by CrossFit and CrossFit gyms until my partner convinced me to try one out. I was instantly hooked! CrossFit has allowed me to push my body and mind to the limit as I accomplish goals that I never knew I wanted to surpass. The best part of coaching for me is the opportunity to help members overcome their own insecurities and fears in a supportive environment.

I began my fitness career over two decades ago coaching High School wrestling. I then fell in love with Olympic Lifting. That love has taken me all over the country, where I have worked with beginner and World Qualifying athletes alike. After guest coaching at the world-famous Olympic Training Center, I relocated to Los Angeles and became fascinated with the intersection of fitness and corrective/rehabilitative exercise. After 25 years in the industry I am still, and will forever be, a student of fitness.

Zach coach at High Voltage Fitness

Coach Zach

I began practicing yoga in 2007 while trying to find a way to cope with the physical and emotional demands of being a first-year middle school teacher. The focus on the breath brought calmness while the physical movements were reminiscent of my background in dance. I was hooked. In 2017, I traveled to Memphis and completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Midtown Yoga. As a former dancer, I look to connect fluid movement with breath while maintaining a sense of zest and playfulness throughout the practice. I am a huge fan of restorative yoga and you can often find me with my legs against the wall.

Certifications: 200 hour yoga teacher training with Midtown Yoga in Memphis and certified through Yoga Alliance

Classes: Vinyasa Flow & Mobility

Nitza coach at High Voltage Fitness

Coach Nitza

I started doing cardio training back in 2013, but never really focused on anything past running, dancing and bootcamp style workouts. It wasn’t until 2017 I started weight training when I took my first class at High Voltage. After my first class I was absolutely in love with it. I really enjoyed the challenge and encouragement to lift weights and find my upper limits. High Voltage fostered the approach to compete with my past self over others and this really worked for me. My workouts became my therapy and have overwhelmingly helped with my anxiety as well as helping me become much stronger.

As the coaches over the years have always encouraged me to reach my potential I found as I became more confident in my skills I wanted to do the same. This community has always been so welcoming and encouraging along my fitness journey, when the opportunity came along to learn to coach I couldn’t pass it up. The High Voltage community has allowed me to prosper and find friendship, motivation and support.

As long as I can remember, I have always been involved in athletics. This passion started as a child and carried all the way through High School where I took part in Football, Wrestling and Track and Field. I attended the University of Maryland where I continued with Track and Field while studying Physical Education. For the last 17 years I have worked in this field allowing me the opportunity to work with all ages ranging from Kindergarten through High School. I have continued my own passion for weight training for the last 10 years and became affiliated with Crossfit about 10 years ago. My biggest passion is watching members and students improve their fitness levels and reach goals they never thought were possible. Helping each person understand that fitness is a life-long journey that we all should value.
