During a recent training camp that I was privileged to help out with, I came to the realization that these high level (albeit, still developing) athletes have remarkable resilience to injury and are driven through passion, monetary compensation, and sheer joy to keep plying their trade.
What is so different about them compared to us when looking at human movement? Not much!
If your goal is not to play high level hockey, or get to the finals at Wimbledon or simply get through the week exercising at the gym 3-4x a week or playing recreational golf, then so be it.
A tennis player still needs to lunge allowing for great mobility in the legs and pelvis. A recreational swimmer still needs to rotate to seamlessly move through the water with proper biomechanics.
Is your upper body and lower body coordinated?
A soccer player still needs to run quickly and change directions at a moments notice.
Isn’t this what we usually do when we actively participate in sports? Isn’t this what professional athletes do day in day out?
Nobody is perfect either. The athletes we tested are quite the athletic specimens but they needed to be tested through the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) in order to see if there was potential for injury.
The FMS is an assessment tool we apply as a risk assessment tool in order to determine what potential a client has for injuring them selves. There is no pass or fail! We want to see EXACTLY how you are moving so we know where to start!
In order to BE better, we have to MOVE better. This will reduce our risk for developing chronic injuries over the long term allowing us to thoroughly enjoy our activities
When we create an Exercise Action Plan, along with goal setting, we use your FMS scores to determine where we need to start you on your exercise program. This way, every 4-6 weeks, we reevaluate and continue the progress improving any imbalances!
Come in for a Fitness Assessment and we will show you how to move better, pain free!
