My name is Bree Argetsinger – but I’m also known as “The Betty Rocker,” a moniker I took on because it embodied what I saw as the best version of myself: a woman living an active, healthy lifestyle, a woman who loved herself, respected her body, took responsibility for her actions and herself, and was worthy of being a role model to those around her. A woman (a Betty) who was rocking not just her body, but her life.
This was the culmination of a long journey for me; I had to deliberately develop physical, mental and spiritual practices to support my goals, and starting out I had most things backwards. Intense experiences in my formative years left me with undiagnosed PTSD, depression, anxiety, and a lot of coping behaviors like drug and alcohol addiction, body dysmorphia, self loathing and feelings of unworthiness.
In seeking to heal and empower myself, I pursued many educational opportunities including formal education, mentorships, hands on learning experiences, workshops, EMDR therapy and a great deal of travel and self exploration, and eventually became a structural integrationist for many years, then later went on to become a CHEK certified exercise coach, an ISSA certified fitness nutrition practitioner, and founded The Betty Rocker brand to share some of the lifestyle, fitness and nutrition practices that had given me so much balance with others who would benefit from them as well.
