Lesson Plan

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’.

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.  

Functional Movement Training (FMT) 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. If your profession & state is unavailable, we do not currently offer CEUs – however, we are continually adding additional licenses.

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to

  • Define and  compare  conscious  and  subconscious movement evaluation and training strategies
  • Define an d evaluate  client psychological/personality traits that influence human movement
  • Compare and contrast methods of brain-based (neurological) vs mechanical screening and assessments of ‘conscious’ movement 
  • Evaluate and justify the importance and utilization of midline (core) control in order to improve effectiveness and efficiency of ‘conscious’ movement 
  • Understand and  discuss  the use of digital motion analysis to objectively capture human movement 
  • Outline factors that contribute to effective movement performance  
  • Critique and demonstrate therapeutic movement tactics with compressional floss, foam rollers and exercise bands   
  • Evaluate and justify differences between neural vs. somatic restrictions (Brain vs. Tissue  influences) on conscious human movement

This course is 6 hours in length and a 30 Question multiple choice quiz will be required after completing the course to receive your CEU certificate. A 70% test score is required to pass and receive CEUs. The quiz can be open book and unlimited attempts on the quiz are allowed.
