What is an FMS movement screening?

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a pre-participation screening tool developed by physical therapist Grey Cook MSPT, OCS, CSCS, RKC. The tool is crafted to identify compensatory movement patterns that are indicative of increased injury risk and inefficient movement that causes reduced performance.

We utilize this tool in your 20-minute movement screening assessment. We take you through 7 different fundamental movements (hence the name The Vital 7™) and rank each movement, then select the class that would benefit you most, based on your ranking.

How does The Vital 7™ work?

As we condition our body—our body mechanics change. The purpose of The Vital 7™ is to keep up with these changes using the movement screening to test and measure your results. This way, we are able to keep up with your most urgent need and keep your imbalances to a minimum, preventing future injuries.

The classes run for five straight weeks (1-2x a week, your choice). The Vital 7™ is a program dedicated to getting results, so it’s not a drop in class. All participants are committed to attending the full program and are aware there are no make up classes.
