Functional Movement Screening

Introducing FMS: Functional Movement Screening

 

WHAT IS IT?!

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is an assessment that documents movement patterns that are necessary for normal function.  By testing various movements, the FMS identifies functional limitations and asymmetries that may affect body awareness and physical performance.  The assessment yields a score based on functional limitations that is used to program specific corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.  The score indicates your readiness to begin an exercise program and allows you to set and achieve realistic goals.

WHY WE USE IT

An individual who participates in regular physical activity should possess the ability to explore full range of movement, demonstrating body control and awareness throughout numerous positions.  A low score shows an individual is limited in movement by poor mobility or stability, which causes them to have less that optimal functional movement.  When an individual seeks to generate force with physical limitation, injury risk increases significantly.  The goal with any exercise program should first and foremost be functional performance, incorporating skill progressions that allow an individual the means to progress their abilities with minimal risk of injury.

 

HOW WE USE IT

Your score serves as a functional baseline to mark progress and provides a means to measure performance.  Based on your results, Next Level strength coaches will tailor a program specific to each individual to help restore normal mechanically sound movement patterns that allow for greatest movement efficiency and ability to build functional strength.
