Dr. Robert Butler of Duke University discusses the typical FMS score. A score of 14 is considered to be the ideal number that in theory someone would be required to clear for higher level movement training. There is often debate that a 14 may be a lofty goal, but Dr. Butler displays research indicating that may not necesarily be the case.

“The Functional Movement Screen is paramount in working with all levels of athletes as well as fitness enthusiasts. As part of the rehab team at Fitness Quest 10, the trainers, massage therapists, chiropractors and physical therapists must work as a unit
to provide individualized care for all of our clients. The FMS is a constant among many variables in the training and sports medicine field. Our patients/clients are given an objective tool to discover their imbalances and gauge progress with corrective exercise
and proper programming. I highly recommend using the FMS to bring awareness of movement to the start of any exercise program, not only for the benefit of the client but also as a team approach for any rehab and training specialists working with an active population.”
