For the second consecutive year, Los Angeles Rams cheerleaders will travel to locations around the globe for an NFL fitness tour to lead our US military personnel overseas in an extensive workout. Cheerleaders from nine NFL teams are participating in this year's tour, accompanied by ProTour Productions and Armed Forces Entertainment. The cheerleaders will travel to: the Bahamas, Cuba, Curacao, Diego Garcia, El Salvador, Greenland, Honduras, and Singapore.
The Rams cheerleaders are an undeniable source of excitement and entertainment for football fans throughout the season, and they are also some of the hardest workers on and off the field. They take pride in working with the local community, donating countless hours to charities throughout the year and providing positive and professional role models for youth.
In her second year with the Rams, Megan T. will spend some time this offseason in Singapore before traveling southward to Diego Garcia, a coral atoll located in the central Indian Ocean that is part of the British Indian Ocean Territory. Megan wanted to become a Rams cheerleader to pursue her passion of dance and inspire fans not only out on the field, but also in the community. She believes the opportunity to visit some of our military personnel overseas is one that might provide some perspective, new companionship, and a good sweat for some of our service members.

"I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to travel to Diego Garcia and Singapore to visit our troops," said Megan. "I can't wait to explore the kaleidoscope of culture. I feel so fortunate to be able to represent the Rams while visiting our military stationed overseas and traveling to places I never even dreamed I would see!"
As a Rams cheer captain in her second year, Melissa P. thrives as a role model for her team and fans in the community. She caught the travel bug after being selected to the Pro Bowl in Orlando last year, and this offseason she will visit Latin American countries El Salvador and Honduras before traveling to the frigid February temperatures of Greenland. Melissa is proud and excited to represent the Rams overseas, and she thinks it'll be a good opportunity to show our service men and women how grateful we are and to lead some of our military members in a "Whose House?! Rams House!" chant.
"The reason why I wanted to participate in this NFL fitness tour is because I have an extraordinary opportunity to show how grateful we are for our service men and women," said Melissa. "The commitment these men and women make to our country is incredible. My goal is to provide a positive impact on them and their families, from a smile to something great like a 'Whose House?! Rams House!' chant. I'm thrilled and honored to represent the Rams organization and show our support during the NFL Fitness Tour."
In her first season with the Rams, Sarah S. cheered her team to their first NFC West Title since 2003. In her first offseason, she will represent the Rams in the Bahamas, Curacao and Cuba to engage service members in some fitness exercises. In addition to bringing joy to our military members overseas, Sarah thinks it will also be a great opportunity to build relationships with other cheerleaders around the NFL.
"I am really looking forward to bringing joy to the U.S. military personnel overseas showing them how thankful we are for their service," said Sarah. "It'll also be great to build friendships with the NFL cheerleaders attending from other teams. Traveling and giving back are two of my favorite things, so this opportunity is a dream come true!"
