NPC Oregon is proud to introduce Bleu Taylor. Bleu is one of Oregon's very own IFBB Pros by way of winning his class at the 2009 Nationals and earning his very own coveted Pro Card. Bleu can be seen at just about every show in Oregon both as a coach, spectator, and inspiration for many competitors..

1. When and why did you decide to start competing?
In 2004, a few friends from my gym (Jungle Gym), convinced me to diet down for the NPC Evergreen State Championships. I thought it would be a great experience to diet down and see what I had on stage and I have always been a very disciplined person who loved challenging goals. I won my class there and swore to never diet again, but something inside me wanted more.

2. What makes you want to go farther in the sport?
I love this sport, it has helped balance me physically and mentally. It is the only sport where you can continue to set goals through your entire life. Its that never ending dream of reaching my physiques full potential, that is what keeps the fire burning for me.

3. What type of training do you implement during contest prep and the in the off-season?
I believe in keeping the weights heavy and mixing up exercises and rep ranges whether its off-season or contest time.I also implement FST-7 in all my training. Individual bodyparts are prioritized depending on balance and growth. 

4. What is your favorite type of dieting meals and what is your favorite type of cheat meal?
Well its strange, I hate fish. But once I am dieting on fish and seeing the changes I want, I begin to love fish and I actually crave it throughout diet. I only have cheat
meals during off-season, and my favorites are sushi or pizza.

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?
Definetly my wife Tammy, she has helped me grow into a better person, father, and husband. And she has always been there through thick and thin supporting me in everything. This sport has led me to so many great people that have helped me so much. Thanks to Hany Rambod, Todd Scott, Andre Scott, and Noel Fueller, words cannot express how much I appreciate all your help and support.

6. Who or what inspires you to strive for more in the sport?
As a bodybuilder its 202 pros like Flex Lewis,Jose Raymond,and Seth Feroce, its the shorter freakier guys that inspire me to push the limits. As a trainer its my clients, seeing them succeed and learning from their indivdual physique is very inspiring and rewarding. And its great to see them suffer while I eat sushi (Brandon Lyons, Calvin Cosgrove) lol

7. What is next for you as a competitor?
At the present time I am trying to gain as much muscle as possible for the 202 pro class. I plan on doing my first IFBB pro show in spring of 2011,returning to the stage at around 175-180lbs.Being only 5'1", I have to come in looking crazy.It will be a dream come true and an honor just to stand next to those guys.

8. What is your favorite memory good or bad while prepping or competing?
After winning my class at the 2007 USA, I was so happy I ate 2 In & Out double burgers, fries, milk shake, and 6 Krispy Creme donuts. About a minute later I was running to the hotel bathroom throwing up everywhere. That was a lesson learned.

9. Any website you would like to plug, facebook, twitter, personal site, etc...
Please check out my website at or email me at I am currently seeking new clients, for men and women off-season or contest prep, no matter what competitive level.
