OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. — After developing debilitating neck and shoulder pain, postural problems and nerve pain from years of exercising and playing Division I college soccer without adequate support, Squaw Valley resident and personal trainer Catherine Betts set out to create a new kind of sports bra.
“For 16 years I struggled to find a sports bra that worked; sometimes I’d be wearing two or three sports bras at the same time. When I realized I wasn’t alone, I set out to create a bra to change women’s lives.”Catherine Betts
Inspired by four years of neuroscience education and a greater understanding of the damage women are suffering, Betts met with top bra designers and constructed hundreds of prototypes before releasing the Betts Fit Sports Bra this spring.

The most advanced feature on the Betts Fit design is the patented corset compression that reduces the excess movement that can lead to ligament damage and neck and shoulder pain. Betts also focused on improving the tension provided in the bottom band and alignment of the shoulder straps.
