Determined to prove people wrong and carve her name in stone is what Angel Starr Saucier did! Competing in the early stages of Figure and then making her comeback in the early stages of Bikini, it was obvious that Angel needed to make the move into the early stages of Women's Physique. A good move it was as she racked up some wins and also earned her very own IFBB Pro card! Angel not only has made her mark onstage, but you will also hear here name as many competitors in the Northwest are probably wearing some of her very own signature posing suits from her company Starrdazzled Custom Posing Suits.

1. When and why did you decide to start competing?
I started competing way back around 2001, when the figure division was first introduced. I competed for about 3 years before I took an 8 year break and came back to the NPC with bikini in 2011. I first started competing after I fell in love with weight training and body manipulation through diet. The next natural step for me was to take it to the stage.

2. What makes you want to go farther in the sport?
I'm a competitive and driven person by nature so winning a show and attaining an IFBB pro card feels like just the beginning for me. There's always another level. There's always another goal. I love inspiring others to peruse their dreams and goals no matter what age. I'm a single mom of 3 children who is almost 40 years old. I love the idea that other women (and men) can look at my story and say, "if she can do it, so can I"

3. What type of training do you implement during contest prep and the in the off-season?
Typically, my off season training has been geared toward straight muscle gain and size since I realized my build wasn't ideal for bikini. Closer to competition for contest prep I incorporate Plyometrics and volume training. This last year for the North Americans prep my focus was on a more conditioned package for stage so I had done 20 min of fasted cardio each day in addition to my weight training as well as a full body circuit day each week.

4. What is your favorite type of dieting meals and what is your favorite type of cheat meal?
My contest diet is very very simple. I usually only give myself 3 protein options and 3 carb options. I'm so busy that I just don't have time to get fancy and play with recipes. Off season, my weakness is pancakes with crunchy peanut butter.

5. Who are some of the people that have helped you along the way to get where you are now in life or in the sport?
I have SO many people I need to acknowledge for having a hand in helping me to succeed. I am a product of a village of people to be honest. My kids first and foremost for being patient and believing in my vision. My TDQ family, Derek Kaneshiro, Kiana Phi, Ryan Wortman, my coach. Kristina Tjernlund, Dakota Ushigome. Andre Scott for years of advice and posing instruction. Noel Fuller who helped me prep in 2013. Ron and Susan Smith for 12 years of friendship and encouragement.

I have attained some awesome sponsors since August that are helping me a ton for this next year. Tracy Coggin (TLC Photography) ASR supplements, Ingrid Burrows (stretching coach) Ben Wright (Xtreme Edge in Keizer, Oregon), Ed Borrago (massage therapist)

6. Who or what inspires you to strive for more in the sport?
Honestly, my children are my biggest inspiration as well as my clients.

7. What is next for you as a competitor?
This coming up year I will be doing 2 guest posing appearances. In June, one for the NPC Washington State Championships for Jeremy Williams and one for the NPC Oregon State Championships in Hillsboro, Oregon for Andre "Bam Bam" Scott. I know for sure I will be competing at the IFBB/NPC North Americans Championships, this time as an IFBB Pro!

8. What is your favorite memory good or bad while prepping or competing?
My favorite all time competitor moment was this year at the North Americans when I got sick after my arrival and didn't think I was going to make it on stage. By the afternoon before I was competing I was able to hold food down, so I prayed and then started eating, all I could do is hope for the best and have faith that when The Lord had told me it was my time, it was. I woke up sat morning for the show and I knew in my heart I would come home an IFBB pro.
