3. What competitions have you made appearances in? From these, what were your placements (titles won)?

My husband is a NPC competitive bodybuilder and I began going and watching his shows. The more shows I watched the more I thought to myself ” hey I can do that”. I have a strong cheerleading and gymnastics background so I decided to enter into fitness. I entered my first fitness show, the 2010 NPC Steel World and I placed first! I competed in the 2010 NPC Southern Classic and also placed first in that show. Due to lack of competition in the fitness category in this area I decided to tried figure this year. I entered the Flex Lewis Classic June 2011 and won novice short class division.

4. When is your next upcoming show? What will be your competing class?

I am currently training for Nationals in Miami November 2011! I am crossing over into a different division for nationals….

5. Where can fans find out more about you (website, published magazines, etc.)?

You can follow me on twitter www.twitter.com/fitness_starr or on Facebook.

I train hard and heavy and I like to workout twice a day with weights at least six days a week and cardio twice a day as well. I live for the bleachers at my former high school. Lunge variations are key to my solid defined feminine muscule development in my legs. Bleachers are a must!

Claudia…thanks for sharing with our Readers a little bit about yourself….

1. Briefly share your Background with us?

I have been interested in Fitness ever since I was a child involved in School Sports, Track and Gymnastics.

In my late teens, I fell in love with the “Iron”…lifting weights became my passion. I had Corey Everson plastered everywhere!

She was my Inspiration – a strong, beautiful and muscular woman…

13 years ago I made a life choice and became Vegan. I began competing to prove that I could do it and to show others that muscle can also be built on Plant Protein and WIN!

I became a Personal Trainer to help others feel as great as I do, to help them transform their bodies.

I felt I could not provide all I stand for if I did not take my Vegan Dietitian Certificate…so that is what I did. I love learning and teaching.

2. Who has inspired you the most to succeed as a Fitness Competitor?

It Started with a Co-Worker named Grace.

She taught a fitness class that I attended and she convinced me to give it a go.

I did and now I am addicted!

I have Sandra Wickham IFBB Pro to thank….she took this Vegan on! : )
