27 Jan Gem Revealed Podcast Episode 20: Darlene Bellarmino of RISE Fitness & Girl Up – Fitness & Confidence
This week on the podcast, I’m talking fitness, confidence, and relationships with Darlene Bellarmino! Darlene is an emerging star in the fitness arena. Not only does she have a successful personal training business in the Bergen County, NJ area, but she has taken what some would think a set-back with pandemic restrictions and launched an online group fitness program with classes ranging from Kickboxing and Pilates to HIIT and Bootcamp.
Darlene’s boundless energy is evident in everything she does, and that’s not all–Darlene has just launched a new app, Girl Up, designed to help women target specific areas of their body to get in shape, affordably, with simple exercises.Darlene’s fitness journey is one we can all relate to. As a working mom of two, there was little “me” time, and as a result she struggled internally with things like confidence, self-worth and positivity. It wasn’t until a friend bought her a gym membership that she even considered exercise a part–let alone an important part–of her daily life.
A year after starting her health journey, she became certified as a Group Fitness Instructor and began teaching classes. From there, her life goals and commitment to fitness became so apparent that she changed careers and became a Certified Personal Trainer, started her OWN personal training business, RISE Training LLC (RISE = Resilient. Inspired. Strong. Empowered.) and just recently launched Girl Up, THE fitness app for women.
