The Functional Movement Screen Level 1 Seminar teaches the rating and ranking system that captures fundamental movement patterns, motor control, and competency of basic movement patterns. 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 Level 1 Seminar begins with an in-depth discussion of why it is essential to do the movement screen and how it can be an effective tool in assigning an exercise program. In doing so, the material that is taught provides information about how an individual or client might be at risk for injury because of asymmetries, dysfunction, or pain. The course also touches on the history of physical education and the decline of movement over the past century.
Secondly, the Level 1 seminar begins to explain the Functional Movement Screen. During this interactive process, a live screen is performed so that the audience can visually observe the screen and validate its usefulness. While administering the screen, the instructor also addresses common mistakes, biomarkers to look for, and overall screening tips to help identify differences related to scoring criteria for the movement tests. The scoring system itself consists of 7 tests with a ranking system of 3, 2, 1 and 0 based upon certain objectives.
To conclude, corrective exercises are explained and demonstrated by the instructor and assistant. All of the exercises that are mentioned in the manual are also available in the exercise library on FunctionalMovement.com, which all Certified Members have access to. Lastly, the seminar finishes with instructions on how to become certified and the benefits that are associated with certification. Upon passing the certification exam, you will be classified as an FMS Certified Member. As such, the entire FMS website is unlocked to you -- articles, podcasts, the Find a Certified Member registry, etc. -- free for one year. Best of all, you will be part of a great network of exercise professionals who share the same principles as you with regards to exercise prescription.
