An Out of Shape Mom’s Betty Rocker 30-Day Challenge Review (What Rocked and What Lacked)

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.

I found Betty Rocker when a friend of mine was helping me find online peers. It turns out Betty Rocker and I share a common goal of wanting to help you relieve your aches + pains to feel better.

She uses gym-style workouts and nutrition. I use Pilates and yoga exercises.

And, although I’ve been very happy with the pain relief my clients have experienced in my program, Spinal Rejuvenation, I still wondered, Is there a better way to relieve pain?

I decided to spend 30 days giving Betty’s style of pain relief a try.

I signed up for her Free 30-Day Challenge program (Transform your body in just 15 minutes a day? Yes, please!) and the paid 30-day meal plan to go along with it.

Here’s the thing about Betty’s Free 30-Day Challenge, you can do the exercises and yes, they will strengthen your muscles.

But, if you’ve got a weight loss goal or if you’re trying to improve your health, you need to have a plan for healthy eating to go along with your exercise or you’re just not going to get the results you’re expecting.

Here’s my Betty Rocker 30-Day Challenge review. In some areas, it rocked; but in others, it lacked.

How It Rocked

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 doubled up on my workouts the next day.

Side note:  You really want to avoid doubling up on Betty Rocker workouts. These workouts are sometimes intense and they are specifically designed to do on a schedule. Learn from my mistake and just carve the time out each day.

Here are the top five reasons why I thought the Betty Rocker 30-Day Challenge and the accompanying 30-Day Challenge Meal Plan rocked.

1. The workouts are short (but effective) and fun.

As a former personal trainer, I can tell you that it’s tough to come up with effective workouts to serve people of all ages, abilities, and fitness levels. Betty did a wonderful job using modifications to help people of all levels find the right way to do each exercise.

For example, we might do basic exercises with modifications to increase the difficulty or we might do challenging exercises with modifications to reduce the difficulty.

Whether we were doing an exercise involving strength or coordination, Betty always demonstrated two or more options. This makes it perfect for you to Goldilocks your way through the exercises and choose the best fit for you.

This also lets you choose what’s best for your body and energy level that day. Then, if you ever go back and repeat some of the workouts from the 30-Day Challenge, you can 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.”

To simplify, what all of those accreditations mean is that Betty Rocker isn’t just a gal who likes to workout. She is a highly educated professional knowledgeable about how the body moves and how to relieve pain.

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 any meal plans that skimp on chocolate goodies are not going to work for me.

But, this isn’t the case with Betty’s meal plan. 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 normally 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 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 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.

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 of your 30 days, she makes a pitch for you to move on to a new, paid program. However, it would be a mistake if she didn’t. If you loved your Betty Rocker time, you would naturally want to figure out a way to keep her in your life.

Aside from an email or two outlining her services, everything else she offers is free. And who among us doesn’t love free?

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.)

But, There Was One Area Where It Lacked

Although I loved my time doing the 30-Day Challenge, there was one area where it lacked—pain relief.

If the whole reason you’re reading this post is because you think exercise can help you get rid of the aches + pains that come along with age, you’re right.

If you’re searching for something to help you feel as good as you did years ago, something to let you get back to living the active life you’ve had to abandon; try Spinal Rejuvenation.

In this online video course, you’ll learn the right exercises and moves to help you start relieving your pain today as well as three easy things you can do to relieve pain immediately.

Spinal Rejuvenation is a paid program, but if you want to learn a portion of the course for free, sign up to receive your digital copy of The Secret to IMMEDIATE + LASTING Pain Relief.

    I just completed day 19 and I’m feeling amazing! I love Bree’s workouts, this is the only fitness routine I have consistently stuck with in years now. I’m definitely thinking about doing the 90 day challenge to keep going as I’m loving the changes I’m seeing in my body already. I couldn’t do a burpee at the start, tried one during the workout the other day, and I could do it! I highly recommend Betty Rocker’s programs to anybody looking to get fit and strong 🙂

      I’m so glad that you’re enjoying the program as much as I did. I haven’t started the 90 day program yet, but it’s on my to-do list. When you get done with yours, let me know what you think!

      Thanks so much for commenting (and backing me up on my love of Bree),
