Equinox: Incorporating FMS at a Large Fitness Corporation

Written by Geralyn Coopersmith Friday, January 31, 2014 FMS Pod Casts

 

Geralyn Coopersmith, has held leadership roles with some of the most iconic brands in the fitness industry, including: Equinox Fitness, Nike and Flywheel Sports. At Flywheel Sports as Chief Talent Officer, Geralyn was responsible for: defining the fitness experience, ensuring class quality and for the professional development of over 400 instructors in 42 locations nationwide.  Geralyn sits down with Lee Burton to discuss how the FMS has become part of the standard operating procedure at Equinox. Integrating FMS as a part of Equifit, their initial member assessment, has led to buy-in from trainers and members alike. This allows trainers to create challenging workouts for their members, many of whom are active middle-aged individuals, without breaking them down or ignoring movement deficiencies.

    I'm glad they have finally got on board with the FMS. I brought this idea to an Equinox Gym in Newport Beach two years ago, and they looked at me like I was crazy. It's great to know that the FMS is now penetrating into a much larger group of the public. Keep up the good work to all of you who are making a difference in peoples' daily lives!
