Functional Movement Screen

Have you experienced problems with your knees? Back? Athletic  Performance? Balance?

The Functional Movement Screen is a ranking and grading system created to document movement patterns that are key to normal function.  By screening these patterns, functional limitations and asymmetries are readily identified.  Basic movement pattern limitations can reduce the effects of functional training, physical conditioning, and dist6rot proprioception (body awareness).  At the heart of the system is the Functional Movement Screen Score, which helps to target the problem and track progress.  The scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.  Sign up at the Fitness Center Front Desk.

It's the intensity of your workout that's key. A short-burst, high-intensity workout boosts your metabolism and tones muscles. Get moving with a 30-minute "quickie" routine that includes cardio and resistance training. Enrollment in this course includes unlimited access to the Fitness Center.
