★ Ditch the cosmetic roller coaster of yo-yo crash diets and quick fixes and instead, be a boss babe on and off the field (or court).


★ Master the behind the scenes lifestyle in this world of dance requires you to be at your best physically, emotionally and mentally. While it is undeniably one of the most exhilarating experiences you may have in public, the private regimen of meal prepping, exercising consistently and taking in quality nutrition is a must.


★This guide is perfect for girls auditioning for a pro team, rookie dancers and cheerleaders and even returning veterans. Each section includes a "Journal” designed to help you capture your story as you chase after your dream plus...


★There are bonus items including recipes and feature stories from our Glam Squad—comprised of other professional dancers from around the nation.


When it all comes down to it, know your goal/ end game and strive to be the best version of yourself you can be. That way whether you hear your name called or not, you can leave it all on the court (or field) and have no regrets.

With many accomplishments in life, LauRen’s success was not always easy. She believes that you can accomplish and overcome many obstacles by simply NOT becoming a victim of circumstance.

She started her pro career with the NFL’s Miami Dolphins and concluded her decade of performance with the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets.

After returning home from her Top 5 placement at the “Super Bowl of pageantry,” she started co-hosting a Pittsburgh Steelers based sports show with a real Super Bowl champion, Jeff Reed.


LauRen graduated from Broward College with a degree in Communications and started working with “The Finsiders,” a sports talk radio on 940WINZ. She also served as host of the Miami Dolphins “Orange Carpet” on game days where she interviewed stars including JLo, Gloria Estefan, and Kim Kardashian, every Sunday!


LauRen successful career in Broadcasting has taken her all over the world, in TV and Radio markets from Miami to Mumbai, India. Her final destination has landed her a position as a Morning Show radio host on “The Maney, Roy & LauRen Show” with Kiss Mornings on Kiss 95.1 in Charlotte NC.Seems only fitting that this one time beauty

queen found her home in non other than, the Queen City!
