What Is FMS Certification – Advantages & Benefits

When you become an FMS certified exercise professional, you will experience firsthand the efficiency and proven results of the FMS system. You will gain access to an exclusive community of certified practitioners, a wealth of constantly updated professional resources, and the database of diagnostic tools and exercises that is key to the FMS system. Certification differentiates your business and gives you an edge over the competition. FMS certification also provides an invaluable opportunity for exercise professionals to maximize their required continuing education credits.

Who Should Get Certified

ANYONE in a position or situation that prescribes exercise as a way to improve performance and lifestyle should consider becoming certified in the FMS. The FMS signifies an intuitive evolution of the exercise, fitness and health profession.

The system is the product of years of innovation and groundbreaking research. The FMS provides a standardized approach to assessing fundamental movement, identifying limitations and asymmetries, and developing individualized corrective exercise programs.

The philosophy behind the FMS is rooted in the concept that, in order to maximize performance, the whole body must be functioning properly. When the body is considered as a chain of individual elements, it’s reasonable that a weak link weakens the entire chain. Ignoring a weak link increases the potential for disaster, and strengthening the wrong links will not improve the integrity of the chain. The FMS provides the means to identify and resolve any weak links that may be jeopardizing the body and its healthy motion.

The FMS is applicable to any population in fitness or sports conditioning. Its standardization streamlines assessment and makes recommending exercises more efficient. And the language of FMS makes it easy to communicate with physicians, reducing the risk of misdiagnosis and redundant work.
