Shout out to our June Athlete of the Month: the incredible Britt Johnson!
Britt joined the gym in January 2019 and can mostly be found bright and early at the 6AM Indoor classes!
Coach Jeff says “Britt is as kind as they are strong. Which is to say, incredibly kind. They are so much fun to have in my classes even though it makes their spouse, Lisa, roll her eyes when we get our bro jokes going. They are always super supportive of other athletes and incredibly welcoming to new folks. They are an elementary school teacher and are probably the coolest teacher those kids will ever have. In addition to being so super duper strong, they are always willing to work on moving better while moving big weights.”
Hannah says “Britt is such an essential part of the gym. They are so badass and strong!! I was lucky enough to meet Britt doing Improv, and in that community they stood out to me as a person who takes up space in really intentional ways. They are not shy about who they are and actively put in work to make space for other people to be as bold. I see them living queer out loud in a way that is so courageous and cool. They have really challenged a lot of the communities they are in to be better and do better, ours included. I also like how transparent Britt is about their needs. They push themselves really hard but are also keenly aware of when they want to slow down or need to drop the weight, or whatever the day calls for. They recently deadlifted 360 lbs and that was AFTER having failed a rep and not being sure they could do more!!!”
We are continuously blown away by everything they do! We are so lucky to have Britt in the Solcana fam and they bring so much to our community!!
