You cannot know how far you’ve come in your progress unless you know where you started. This Fit Test provides that baseline for us when you begin your training. You will also perform this test approximately 6-8 weeks into your training to check your progress, think pre test and post test. This test consists of 6 exercises designed to show you a snapshot of where you are now and will act as your fitness baseline giving you an idea of your strength, power, endurance, conditioning, core strength, and balance capabilities. These exercises include…
1: the Vertical Jump (lower body power)
2: GTS Pull-ups (upper body strength)
3: Medicine Ball Throw (upper body power)
8: Plank Hold (core strength)
7: Single Leg Balance (strength imbalances)
6: the 300 Yard Shuttle (endurance).

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is the product of an exercise philosophy known as Functional Movement Systems. This exercise philosophy and corresponding set of resources is based on sound science, years of innovation, and current research.
Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.
The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.
Exercise professionals monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.
The FMS simplifies the concept of movement and its impact on the body. Its streamlined system has benefits for everyone involved – individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians.
