America may have lost the World Cup against Japan, but they doesn't mean that the US team isn't showing off a few fitness inspirations! As I watched the game that night, I couldn't help but gravitate to the goalie, Hope Solo.
I must have been having some crazy connection with Hope Solo that night, as it turns out she has played soccer for my hometown with Saint Louis Athletica. However, let's get on to the real reason you guys are here: just look at how fit she is!
As an avid soccer player for 7 years, I already know the strength and determination it takes to play the game. Just looking at Hope Solo makes me want to amp up my fitness by starting to play the game again. The 29 year old, Olympic Gold Medal winning goalie even won the 'Golden Glove' in goalkeeping and the 'Bronze Ball' in overall performance for her work in 2011 World Cup. She's even been featured in ads for Nike!
What do you think of Hope Solo as a fitness inspiration? Do you have a favorite player from the women's team?
