In today’s post I want to introduce a fundamental component of our programming philosophy. It’s integral to everything we do and I’ve even put it up front and centre on our main wall. Functional Movement Systems founder, Gray Cook, established a unique approach to identify underlying issues in the way we move. He took 7 basic movement patterns and developed a screen known as The Functional Movement Screen. The results of that screen provides a unique window into a clients strategy for completing simple movement patterns. When a compensation is detected, specific action can be taken to further determine the cause and prescribe corrective movement patterns and even patterns to avoid until the compensation has been cleared.
The video below goes into further detail about the system and our beliefs behind Body Fit’s Functional Movement Evaluation.
