Laura Eilers keeps the energy flowing on the field and in life. aura Eilers is the dance team coordinator for the Richmond Raiders indoor football team. She’s also got her own business, Going Pro Entertainment, and is sales director for Angela King Designs and Go Wild Wear. Last year she won the Ms. United States title, a national pageant with fashion and interview components for single, divorced or widowed women between the ages of 25 and 50.
Belle: How do you define your personal style? Eilers: I like clothes that are classics, timeless
and ageless. Then I like to add a color pop or accent. I go through color phases.
What phase are you in now? Because it’s Raider’s season, right now it’s royal blue. I also like to add a hint of sparkle — a rhinestone or shine somewhere. That always helps. And where would we find you shopping for sparkle and royal blue? My favorite store in Carytown is LeenaLu, and you can find me at Target quite often. Tell us about your fitness regimen.

one hour a day, but I do like to work out every day, even if I can only fit in 20 minutes. Treat your exercise like a job and be sure to set up appointments. It should be a daily expectation like brushing your teeth or taking a shower. Mondays, Wednesdays and sometimes on Fridays I like to run to get my day started. I teach dance, boot camp, strength and toning with weights, and I also take classes where I can feed off the other students’ energy. Recently I also follow a lot of the Insanity Workout with Shaun T at home. What is your business about? Going Pro Entertainment specializes in using team alumni from the pro cheer industry from the NFL and NBA across the USA to perform for events, do choreography, conventions, and consulting. Your life and career center on fitness and health, so how does that make you feel? I feel confident when I look in the mirror, like I’m wearing a new outfit every day. It’s one less thing I have to be concerned with. If you feel good underneath and you make healthy choices, the rest will fall into place. interviewed and styled by
