Introducing PRO Cheerleader Magazine 

Posted by James at 11:00 PM ET

Pro Cheerleader MagazineI've got some pretty exciting news. There's a new magazine coming out this October.

PRO Cheerleader Magazine is going to provide stories, insight, role models, and inspiration from Pro Cheerleaders to other current and potential cheerleaders of all ages.

You can expect everything from tips on practice and articles on health and exercise to stories of optimism and cheerleaders overcoming trials and tribulations. PRO Cheerleader Magazine will also smash a few stereotypes that I am sure we are all too familiar with.

This magazine isn't just for NFL Cheerleaders, as the magazine's tagline reads "Every Sport, Every Age, Every Cheerleader." Whether it's a middle school cheerleader looking to make the high school squad, or a dancer to trying to take it to ultimate level and make it to the pros, PRO Cheerleader Magazine will offer something for everyone.

The driving force behind this new quarterly magazine is founder and editor Amy Woodard. Amy has 22 years of cheer and dance experience. In college she cheered for NC State. In 1996 she achieved a life-long dream of being a professional cheerleader when she made the very first Carolina Panthers TopCats squad. Amy would go on to dance for the TopCats for seven seasons. She was a three-time line captain, cheered on the Panthers at SuperBowl XXXVIII and was selected by her teammates to represent the TopCats at the 2006 Pro Bowl.

So what's it like to start a magazine from scratch? Very busy! Amy tells us that she's spending every waking moment away her day job (she's a business support lead for a "very large" bank) working on the magazine. But it's a a labor of love and she's got support from her husband Dwayne her sixteen year-old step-daughter Tiffany and many friends.
