Mimi joined Solcana in 2017 with a strength training interest, looking to lift more seriously on a Powerlifting team. She’s become a staple of the Solcana lifting community; attending meets, challenging herself and supporting her fellow lifters. Mimi focuses on Strength and Power Lifting, attending CrossFit and Mobility classes to support her training. Coach Jenn says to “watch Mimi stretch sometime – it is so graceful!”

“Being a part of Solcana has made me more confident around a bar and about my abilities. Lifting and being in a gym environment has always made me either nervous or self-conscious, particularly as a non-binary individual. Being a member at Solcana has not only made me excited about lifting and getting stronger, but I was also able to do it in a super supportive environment around people of so many different levels!”

"The most helpful, encouraging coaches and members! As a new to weights  person, I was absolutely terrified coming into my first classes here! However, I never feel left behind and never feel like I'm not getting enough guidance. I feel motivated (and excited!) to go, even when the workout of the day seems really scary."

"Solcana truly changed my life. Before I started weight training, I just hated working out. Cardio-focused workouts weren't for me, but I always wanted to get in shape. When I heard about Solcana and its "all are welcome" philosophy, I knew I had to check it out! I stayed involved in Solcana after my intro ended because of the amazing community I found there, the awesome owner and coach, Hannah, and of course, the cutest dog: Petey. Weightlifting is about more than just lifting weights, it's about strengthening your spirit and always striving to achieve greatness. I highly recommend that you try out Solcana, they will introduce you to weight training and show you how to lift safely."

"Joining Solcana has totally changed my relationship with moving my body - the coaches and the other members are AWESOME and make me feel welcome, cared about, and motivate me to keep coming back (this is huge for me as a previously unmotivated gym member). This community is unlike any other that I've been a part of and I'm happy that doing things that are good for me are also in line with so many of my values. Yay Solcana!"
