Britt Johnson


Britt is as kind as they are strong. Which is to say, incredibly kind. They are so much fun to have in class. 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.

They have really challenged a lot of the communities they are in to be better and do better, ours included. They push themselves really hard but are also keenly aware of when they want to slow down or need to drop the weight, 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!

Sam Taitel


Sam in a nutshell: Fierce. Determined. Kind. Strong. Powerful. Encouraging. Humble.

Sam joined Solcana because they needed a place to work out and find community, especially among queer folks, in a new city after moving here from NYC. They have loved the supportive group dynamics while being able to push themself. Sam is such an inspiring athlete. They are truly an embodiment of Solcana’s values and purpose. They bring absolute fierceness and badassery – while cultivating a warm, welcoming, supportive vibe to all those around them.
