The Online FMS Level 1 Course teaches how to administer the Functional Movement Screen, a rating and ranking system that captures mobility and motor control in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to movement competency.
The core focus of the movement screen is to emphasize movement quality over quantity, and to identify any movement deficiencies or limitations. Since the body is complex in nature and operates as a system, it is necessary to address movement patterns as a whole, rather than evaluating isolated joint measurements when trying to determine inefficiencies.
The movement screen is an applicable tool that should be used when determining an appropriate exercise program for any individual.
The FMS Level 1 Online Course includes access to over 100 minutes of video content and a downloadable manual. The 4 Units included in this course are as follows:
Unit 1: History of the Screen and Understanding Why
Unit 2: Overview, Set-up and Scoring of the 7 Tests
Unit 3: FMS Scoring Report and using the Light System
Unit 4: How results impact programming and corrective exercise strategies
Appendix 1: Introduction to the Motor Control Screen (MCS)
Appendix 2: Modified FMS
