This is a unique Combination of the Functional Movement Screen integrated with Service professionals such as military, firefighters, police, etc. 



FMS Level 1

The Core Training System is the product of years of research and innovation. This System develops exercise programs based on individual movement patterns. It is equally effective in rehabilitation as well as conditioning because it targets the weak link.  The System is made up of:


  • Functional Movement Screen
  • Core Training
  • Reactive Neuromuscular Training.


Specifically, the Functional Movement Screen is a grading system created to assess and document functional movement patterns.  By assessing these patterns, functional limitations and asymmetries are readily identified.    Basic movement pattern limitations can reduce the effects of functional training and distort proprioception.  The goal of this workshop is to introduce you and your staff to the benefits of utilizing this orthopedic screening process since functional movement patterns are the base for Core Training. At the heart of the system are the Functional Movement Screen score and the movement patterns, which are directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns. 


Core Trainingis a series of exercises involving the Core Board, medicine ball, and tubing, targeted specific athletic movement patterns.  Reactive Neuromuscular Training is the scientific platform for the Core Board exercises and medicine ball work that will be presented.




At the conclusion of the course participants will be able to:

  1. Assess fundamental movement patterns and determine weaknesses
  2. Understand Functional Movement Screen Scoring System and how it pertains to movement dysfunction

            3.   Determine mobility and stability problems within general population groups

4.   Prescribe corrective exercise techniques which are designed to improve   fundamental movement mechanics

5. Develop a greater appreciation of the importance of assessing and correcting movement pattern dysfunction

Using the FMS with Tactical Athletes and Group Environment

Now that you are a certified FMS professional you can learn how to use the FMS to take your clients training to the next level. “FMS for Tactical Athletes and Group Exercise” is designed for those who work with Fire, Military and Police Officers (Tactical Athletes), trainers who work with Tactical Athletes who are interested incorporating the FMS into their practice to identify individuals who are at high risk of injury, interested in reducing job related injuries while increasing overall performance and durability. This course is also highly recommended for those trainers who run boot camps or lead group exercise programs.  This course will give you proven strategies of the FMS that you can take away and immediately implement into your training of tactical athletes or group exercise programs so that your clients may reach their fitness goals or extend their careers.

This course will explore the special needs and training considerations that are needed when working with tactical athletes and in the group exercise setting. Learn to use the FMS and program design by systematically using corrective exercises to improve fundamental movement patterns and overall movement of all Tactical Athletes.

Learning to create a functional movement profiles for all clients will allow you to rate and rank movement for statistical observation, while giving you a baseline movement pattern score. During this class you will be taught a systematic tool to monitor progress and movement pattern development as fitness level changes. All attendees will learn to use proprietary FMS software package to allow all Tactical Athletes to benefit fromthe FMS.
