BIO:
Betty "The Kid" Pariso grew up living the farm life and maintained a very athletic and healthy lifestyle from the start. One thing that kept Betty busy with physical activity was the fact that she grew up without a television.  Once she was older Betty got involved in the modeling profession and was the wife of a minister. It was during these years that she would first enter a gym, trying to add some weight to what she thought was a pretty small frame. After many years of training Betty decided to take a chance on the stage. In 1996 she would go on to win her pro card at the NPC Nationals. But there is something special about Betty’s achievement that is quite unique. In 1996 when she earned her pro card, Betty was 40 years old, and was the oldest women to earn an IFBB pro card. Since turning pro, Betty has quickly become one of the fan favorites. With her husband Ed Pariso, Betty now owns an industrial equipment and parts distribution company, as well as being he owner and promoter for the Southwest USA Health and Fitness Expo. Her resume also includes that she is the IFBB’s competitors rep for female competitors.
