Volt Movement was founded by physical therapist, triathlete, and USA Triathlon Coach, Sam Hegedus.

Sam Hegedus was born and raised in Durham, where she grew up swimming and running competitively. Sam then moved to Pittsburgh, PA and was a Division 1 collegiate swimmer at Duquesne University. She was the 2016 Atlantic 10 Conference Champion in the 100 freestyle, 100 freestyle Conference Record Holder, Woman Athlete of the Year Nominee, and Scholar All-American. After 4 years of swimming and 1 year of running track, Sam was a Student Assistant Swim Coach for Duquesne for 2 years while finishing her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.


In August of 2018, Sam moved back to Durham and began working at Upright Athlete as a Physical Therapist. She is a Physical Therapist for Team USA Shooting, certified in Trigger Point Dry Needling Level 1, a Rock Steady Boxing Coach, an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, a Functional Range Conditioning Specialist, a USA Swimming certified coach, and a USA Triathlon Level 1 Certified Coach.
