Sol S.Holabird Sports Family Member Since 1993.
I’ve played tennis almost my whole life—from juniors through college and beyond. In college I was team captain and a conference champion. In the past two years I’ve become dedicated to fitness at a much greater level and I’ve been trying to set an example for others about becoming better physically and living a healthier overall lifestyle. I have a love-hate relationship with my workout programs and I run sporadically between other workouts like P90X, Insanity, and Asylum. When I run, I usually log around 8 miles per run.
My favorite Holabird Sports memory is working the booths at tennis events such as Legg Mason. I loved hitting the prizes into the stands. I’m really good at coaching, as well as creating fruit and vegetable trays. I’m ambidextrous—I throw with my left, play tennis with my right, and bat from both sides of the plate. If I was a super hero my power would be mind reading (most people think I already do it).
I love to cook and and my favorite food is a Chocolate Slim and Trim smoothie from Smoothie King. The one food I could never give up is salad. I DVR One Life to Live and General Hospital. I love reading athletic magazines.
My favorite season is summer and I love to vacation on any beach. If I were stranded on a desert island, I’d take a beach umbrella.
