Why should you consider the FMS?: The FMS is designed to show fundamental movements & motor control within movement patterns. It will determine the greatest areas of movement deficiency, demonstrate limitations or asymmetries in the body.
Who is the FMS for?: FMS was originally developed to chart movement patterns in youth athletes. This effort was to determine who was ready to engage in higher-level activities in the weight room and/or on the court/field. In the two-year refining process information gathered from its use has broadened the scope of corrective exercise, training and rehabilitation. The FMS is great for kids that play sports or want to become active in competition all the way up to Pro-Level athletes. Not only is the FMS used on athletes but it is also used on average everyday people, whether a person has a sedentary lifestyle or is as active as an athlete.
The Screening Process: The FMS is comprised of seven movement tests that require a balance of mobility and stability. The patterns used give detailed observable performance of basic, mobility and stability movements by placing clients in positions where weaknesses, imbalances, asymmetries and limitations become noticeable by a certified FMS health and fitness professional.
