FMT Movement Specialist Certification

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 that stereotypical standards and measurements to 'ideal' movements we can provide a more COMPLETE strategy to movement and screening by looking at the complete person, their environment and their unique 'parts'.

FMT Movement Assessment

Day 1

  • The FMT Movement Assessment Course is designed to help health and fitness professionals learn safe, simple, and effective tactics to assess ‘conscious’ movement. Attendees will learn multiple assessments along with intervention strategies of the fundamental movement of squatting.

FMT Advanced Movement Assessment

Day 2 

  • The FMT Advanced Movement Assessment Course is designed to help health and fitness professionals learn safe, simple, and effective tactics to assess and address  ‘unconscious’ movement. Attendees will learn multiple assessments alongside multiple interventional strategies to influence the movements of walking and breathing.
