Congratulations to Hallie Olson and Mike Grewe, our January Athletes of the Month!
Hallie Olson walked in the door one day in August and said “I’m here to sign up” and she has become a staple at the gym since then. Hallie is someone I am always happy to see in class. She is honest, gentle, and hilarious. If you ever need to be encouraged through a tough workout or reminded that you’re surrounded by friends, Hallie has you covered. She’s also strong as hell! It has been so cool to see Hallie coming into her power as she works through the strength progressions. I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in the next year. Hallie is a social worker who does a lot for other people and goes out of her way to make others feel good. We are so happy to have you here, Hallie!
Mike Grewe started at Solcana in April of this year and he has come a long way since he first started with us. He is someone I am always happy to see in class because he brings a really great attitude and an openness to learning every day. When he gets a cue from a coach he approaches it thoughtfully and deliberately, and works really hard to integrate it into his practice. He is a great listener and he has been working SO hard. He is just a great person, genuine and caring, who always takes time to check in with people and offer them a smile. Mike works at Augsburg as the Director of LGBTQIA Student Services and Assistant Director of Campus Activities and Orientation. We are doubly fortunate that Mike’s partner, Jonathan, decided to join him at Solcana as well.
