The Functional Movement Screen is an innovative system used to evaluate movement pattern quality for clients & athletes.
The screen is comprised of seven fundamental movement patterns that require a balance of mobility and stability and place the individual in positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable.
- Deep Squat
- Hurdle Step
- In-Line Lunge
- Shoulder Mobility
Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.
Older, younger, active, not-so-active, everyone has unique movement imbalances and limitations that can lead to pain and injury. The Functional Movement Screen reveals your weaknesses so you can begin strengthening them, working out in a gentle but highly targeted and effective way. Based on your screen, Passion for Fitness develops a customized plan of corrective exercises that meets your needs, continually tracking and updating your plan as you progress.
You don’t have to be an athlete to suffer the aches and pains of age and activity, so turn back the clock on wear and tear with the Functional Movement Screen today! For more information, visit functionalmovement.com.
