about us

movement | learning | fun

Today's youth aren't getting the opportunities for physical activity that they need or deserve.  As adults, we have the Power to change that. 

PowerUp programs are designed to provide children with the opportunity to become more active - where they're already spending time. PowerUp classes boost confidence, engage participants in movement and learning, and shape positive attitudes by making fitness fun! 

We want kids to find their own joyful movement.


With PowerUp in schools,  fitness centers, childcare, and throughout communities, we can make a change toward a healthier, more active generation now and for the future. 

About PowerUp

Founder & CEO

stacy (scott) baugues

​PowerUp Fitness, LLC was founded April 2012, in Knoxville, TN by Stacy Scott Baugues.  Both her fitness industry experience and time working in school systems were the inspiration behind the PowerUp Programs.  Stacy recognizes the importance of physical activity for all ages and believes that when children can find joy in movement, they have the potential to be active for a lifetime.  

Stacy holds a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Science in Kinesiology.  Her research is published in the journals of Pediatric Exercise Science and Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. 

Stacy has trained PE teachers across the country on the Fitnessgram's PACER test.  PowerUp partners with afterschool networks and educational organizations nationwide, including recently the US Department of Education to speak on topics related to youth fitness and physical activity aligned with academics and SEL.
