Inside: On somewhat of a whim, I decided to try Betty Rocker’s 30 Day Challenge. I had no idea what to expect. Would I like the workouts? Would I even be able to do the workouts? Here’s my Betty Rocker 30 Day Challenge review as a fitness professional and currently out-of-shape mom.
Recently, a friend of mine recommended that I check out Betty Rocker’s site because Betty Rocker and I share some common goals–we both want to help you feel better. Betty’s approach is through exercise and nutrition. These are two areas where she is highly qualified to provide advice.
My area of expertise is Pilates and yoga, so my approach is through balancing your muscle strength and flexibility by using Pilates and yoga. Both of us can help you get rid of pain and feel better, so I was really interested in snooping around Betty’s site and seeing what ideas and services she has to offer.
After about 5 minutes of looking around, I signed up for her Free 30 Day Challenge program (to transform your body in just 15 minutes a day!) and the paid 30-day meal plan to go along with it. From April-May 2018, I completed the Challenge to the best of my ability. Here’s my honest Betty Rocker 30 Day Challenge review.
I loved it!
Even on days when I was totally swamped with work and life, I looked forward to my workouts. On days when I couldn’t get them in, I looked forward to doubling up the next day.
Side note: You really want to avoid doubling up on Betty Rocker workouts, especially toward the end of the 30 Day Challenge.
Here are just some of the reasons why I love the Betty Rocker 30 Day Challenge and the accompanying 30 Day Challenge Meal Plan:
1. Workouts are short but effective (and fun).
With my background in personal training, I really wondered how she was going to be able to create generic yet effective workouts appropriate for the beginner and the already fit individual. The answer is modifications and variety.
It seems like our 15 minutes were filled with a combination of basic exercises with modifications for how to increase difficulty and challenging exercises with modifications for how to increase simplicity. Whether we were doing an exercise involving strength or coordination, Betty always demonstrated two or more options.
This allowed me the freedom to choose whatever I thought was best for my body and energy level that day. Now, as I’m repeating some of the workouts from the 30 Day Challenge, I’m able to choose some of the more difficult modifications.
2. Betty knows her stuff.
Here’s just a portion of Betty Rocker’s bio from her website:
“My name is Bree Argetsinger – but I’m also ‘The Betty Rocker.’
I am a C.H.E.K. (Corrective Exercise and High-performance Kinesiology) certified Exercise Coach, a Nationally Certified Structural Integration Practitioner (realignment of the body through manual therapy), an ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association) certified fitness nutrition practitioner, and an all around fitness motivator and champion of personal growth.
I’ve written multiple cookbooks, and nutrition and fitness plans that have been successfully used by thousands of people.”
3. Betty loves chocolate.
Do you know who loves chocolate? Me. I love chocolate. It’s not that I have to have it every day, but I do find that my days are much better when I do get to have it.
So many meal plans skimp on chocolate goodies, but not Betty Rocker. Betty also loves chocolate, so the recipes for chocolate treats are pretty fantastic.
For example, in the Week 1 Meal Plan, she shares a recipe for chocolate muffins that have no sugar, wheat, or dairy. The main ingredient is black beans, which I don’t eat. Let me tell you that these chocolate muffins are completely out of this world. This recipe alone was worth the entire amount of money that I paid for the Meal Plan. I can’t say enough how much I love these muffins.
4. The 30 Day Challenge makes it easy to work out.
Each day, Betty sends you an email (at an ungodly time in the morning) so that you can exercise whenever you want in your day. She varies the routines and has strategically placed workouts so that you don’t overuse your muscles.
Overall, she does a good job sticking to the commitment that the workout will just be 15 minutes. However, some days (on stretch day in particular), the workout takes longer.
Although she says that you don’t need any equipment for the workouts, there are some days where you might need a box or a hand towel. Still, I would agree that this doesn’t really count as equipment.
Betty promises a 15-minute at-home workout without equipment, and I feel like she delivers.
5. You’re trading your email address for valuable goodies.
When you sign up for the 30 Day Challenge, you enter your email address. Unlike some other people who overwhelm you with emails and marketing pleas, Betty Rocker keeps it cool. You receive your workouts and the occasional new recipes throughout the program.
At the end, she does make a pitch for you to move on to a new, paid program. However, it would be a mistake for her to neglect to inform you that there’s more you two can do together. Aside from an email or two outlining her services, everything else she offers is free.
She’s even offering a free 5 Day Challenge right now. I’ve signed up and am loving it.
I love what Betty Rocker has to offer, what she does, and who she is. She is the real deal, and I think she can legitimately improve the health and wellness of any person.
(I have not been paid or compensated in any other way to write this. It is my honest opinion. Also, I do not receive any money or compensation if you decide to try any of her programs.)
