FMS, also known as a Functional Movement Screen is a baseline assessment to identify asymmetries and imbalances in the body. Once you complete your FMS screening you will be given a 4-6 week exercise plan that will help correct those areas of dysfunctional movement. FMS will help you gain the fundamentals of exercise before trying to go to the next level. FMS builds a great foundation for anyone being assessed, and we all know that having a good, stable, and reliable foundation is the key to success!
