You know we love to give you tips about local momprenuers! So of course when we heard about a Ridgewood mom whom just launched a new fitness app for women we knew we had to share it with you!

If you are looking for a fitness app designed FOR women and where we want to firm up, that is easy to navigate, incorporates simple exercises and most importantly is affordable, then you should try Girl Up.  The app, created by Ridgewood mom Darlene Bellarmino, comes with a 14-day FREE trial so there is really no reason NOT to give it a go.

Darlene set about creating the app with the goal of making fitness attainable, affordable and approachable. In her words “Girl Up aims to help women gain confidence and strength both emotionally and physically.” Darlene has not always been a fitness guru, in fact she spent 15 years in corporate America before realizing she needed to prioritize her health and wellbeing and started working out. In a short period of time, Darlene started teaching fitness classes then became a certified fitness trainer. Never one to sit still, Darlene is now studying for a license in nutrition.

Now, we all know exercising with gym restrictions and kids learning from home has been difficult and many of us have gained the Covid “15”. What we love about the app is that you can create your own workout and target the areas that you want when you find time to exercise.  It’s that simple.

And if you live in the Ridgewood area, word on the street is that Darlene teaches some kick-butt classes outside her home on a daily basis. So if you are looking for the hottest new digital workout, check it out at We are loving her instagram where she shares healthy recipes, exercise tips, weekly shakes and even a little inspiration. If you’d like to learn more about Darlene, her personal training and her outdoor classes you can follow her on Instagram at or visit her website at
