Project Description

The CDC recommends that kids get 60 minutes of physical activity everyday.  Other than limited time in PE or recess, most kids aren't getting what they need - not from lack of interest, but lack of opportunity.  Outside of traditional sports, there aren't many structured physical activity programs for kids. 

 

PowerUp Fitness offers instructor training with tailored youth fitness programs available for fitness and recreation facilities, before and afterschool programs, and early learning centers through our three signature programs.  With your support, PowerUp Programs could spread nationwide.

 

Instructor Training & Support: We provide a full suite of online instructor training including: Online Instructor Platform, PowerUp Instructor Manuals, Business Basics Materials (sample permission forms, promotional materials, etc.), and an Instructor Tips & Tricks subscription for ongoing support. 

Plug and Play Lesson Plans: All PowerUp Fitness programs include age-appropriate exercises, activities, and games in ready-to-use lessons that make program implementation easy, consistent, and engaging for all participants.

 

PowerUp Fitness was started in 2012 and, up until this point, business growth has been entirely organic while the programs were in pilot stages and early development

I am asking for $25,000 to jump-start the next phase of growth for PowerUp Fitness, LLC.  Funds raised will go towards Instructor scholarships and school sponsorships (read more about these in the Rewards/Incentives section), marketing and promotional expenses, enhancements to the online instructor platform, and a portion of overhead expenses. 

A crowdfunding campaign that's giving back -- For every $1000 raised, a school, daycare, or nonprofit youth recreation program will receive a PowerUp program at no cost!  Giving more kids the opportunity to PowerUp this year.

If fundraising exceeds $25,000, extra funding will go towards additional school/non-profit sponsorships for organizations that want to implement PowerUp, but cannot afford the programs.

 

Thank you for your support in helping PowerUp Fitness move into its next phase and grow as a business.  Together we're empowering youth through movement, education, and fun! 

Thank you so much for your generous support,

The Project FAQs

How many schools/fitness centers/daycares are already using the PowerUp programs?

  • As of August 2019, PowerUp Your School is in or scheduled to start in nine schools. PowerUp Fitness Classes are available in four YMCA of East Tennessee facilities.  We're looking for our first early learning facility to launch the PowerUp Peanuts program soon! 

When will I get my reward/when will sponsored programs get started?

  • If you choose a reward that includes a note, sticker, or t-shirt, we'll be reaching out at the end of our campaign to confirm your mailing address and t-shirt size.  If you selected a reward that sponsors an instructors, school/s, or PowerUp Program, we'll be notifying sponsorship recipients at key milestones in the campaign.  From there we'll work with the recipients to get the PowerUp program up and running as soon as possible.  We'll be sure to update you with information about the beneficiaries of your contribution. Stay tuned to the updates section as well!
