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 Movement Assessment Objectives

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

  • Identify the role of neuromuscular movement assessment
  • Assess conscious(cortical) and unconscious(cerebellar) proprioception testing for the patient/client as it relates to human movement.
  • Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions and neuro/somatic  restrictions (Brain vs.Tissue).
  • Integrate the“3 Movement Pillars”and how they relate to human movement control and performance (Brain (Neurological/Psychological), Midline,), Mechanical)
  • Evaluate movement assessment techniques to identify faulty motor patterns in fundamental movements (e.g.squatting).
  • Critique and demonstrate proper use of compression floss bands, foam rollers, kinesiology tape (as a motor control tool) and mobility balls for movement limitations.
  • Screen and develop  movement with the use of exercise bands, agility and conditioning equipment as well as body weight correctives with appropriate progressions and regressions.
  • Integrate the use of digital motion analysis to objectively capture human movement.

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.

FMT Advanced Movement Assessment Objectives

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

  • Examine the role of neuromuscular movement assessment
  • Assess automatic/unconscious awareness of human movement (breathing and gait) by screening the balance and coordination systems.
  • Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions  and neural/somatic restrictions (Brain vs Tissue)
  • Integrate the“3 Movement Pillars”and how they relate to human movement control and performance (Brain (Neurological/Psychological), Midline, Mechanical)
  • Demonstrate movement assessments that identifies the ability to associate and dissociate segments of the body as they relate to gait/breathing movement patterns.
  • Apply, practice and employ corrective strategies that involve the ability to associate (integrate) and dissociate (mobilize) different segments of the body.
  • Critique and demonstrate proper use of compression floss bands, foam rollers and mobility balls for movement limitations.
  • Assess and develop improved movement behaviors with the use of exercise bands, kinesiology tape and agility/conditioning equipment as well as body weight correctives with appropriate progressions and regressions.
  • Introduce and integrate the use of digital motion analysis to objectively capture human movement.
