Open to Members & Non-Members

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a grading system used to assess movement patterns that are key to normal function. Through seven fundamental movement patterns, the FMS aims to identify imbalances in mobility and stability that may increase the risk of injury and contribute to performance-limitations. Once these imbalances have been identified, the most beneficial corrective exercises are given to restore proper movement patterns that enable the body to handle greater and more specific fitness training. Now is the perfect time to identify these imbalances before the season gets started. PLEASE WEAR EXERCISE CLOTHING. Click here to return to the top of the page.
