FMT Movement Specialist Courses

There is no ‘one size fits all’ to human movement, rather there are many ‘human shapes’ that can accomplish the same movement goals.

More important than stereotypic standards and measurements to ‘ideal’ movements we can provide a more COMPLETE strategy to movement screening by looking at the complete person, their environment and their unique ‘parts’.

The FMT Movement Specialist Certification 

 FMT Movement Specialist is designed to help health and fitness professionals learn safe, simple, and effective tactics to screen and assess ‘conscious’ movement patterns. Attendees will learn multiple ‘quick’ screens and assessments along with corrective exercises tactics and strategies of the ‘conscious’ fundamental movement of the deep squat. 

 A variety of interventional tools (mobility balls, exercise bands, foam rollers, compression flossing bands, agility and conditioning equipment) will be used to tackle an evidence-informed, brain-based approach to movement improvement and functional performance programming. The use of digital motion analysis technology will be presented to demonstrate how health and fitness professionals enhance their objectivity when assessing human movement.  

 

The FMT Movement Specialist Advanced Certification 

FMT Movement Specialist Advanced is designed to help health and fitness professionals learn safe, simple, and effective tactics to screen, assess and address performance of subconscious movement. Attendees will learn multiple screens and assessments alongside multiple corrective strategies to influence the ‘subconscious’ movements of breathing and gait. 

This course offers an evidence-based, functional framework that health and fitness professionals can use to assess and intervene in patients and clients with subconscious movement dysfunction. Topics such as cognitive awareness, neurological, midline and mechanical control and tactical intervention will be discussed and practiced. Lab experiences will include assessment, practice and corrective techniques that will be immediately actionable by students after completion of this training course. 

These courses are intended for health and fitness professionals with all levels of prior movement screening experience. All supplies needed for the course and lab experiences are provided. 

Functional Movement Training (FMT) Certification courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers – depending on location and class type.
