Sport Performance + Medical Fitness Training FAQs
What is a Movement Screen?
A movement screen uses unfamiliar movements to identify how your body compensates or adapts during functional activities. By identifying these uncontrolled movements or “weak links” we can assess your risk for musculoskeletal pain and performance deficits. Using your screen results we will create a safe and effective training program designed with your deficits and specific fitness goals in mind.
I already work out. Is a movement screen really necessary?
We strongly recommend participants complete a movement screen prior to commencing a training program. The screen identifies your specific impairments and allows your trainer to devise a specific plan to best meet your needs. It’s analogous to an orthopedic surgeon requesting an MRI prior to surgery. The MRI, a diagnostic test both confirms and eliminates impairments allowing the surgeon to devise a plan for surgery, minimize the unexpected during surgery and maximize your long-term outcomes.
How long does it take to complete a screen?
Depending on the screen selected, it will take between 30-90 minutes to complete. Upon completion of your screen, one of our experts will review your score, discuss the impairments identified in your report, and recommend a retraining program for you.
Do I need to get screened before I take a class?
No. However, it is strongly recommended that a movement screen is performed before you join our fitness classes or retraining sessions. The screen identifies your specific impairments and is a key piece to educating you about your body. Knowledge is power and this knowledge will allow you to get the most out of your workouts.
Who is appropriate for movement screening?
We have screens, training programs and sport performance training appropriate for people of all ages and fitness levels.
How long will I need to train to Get Results?
Using your movement screen, our experts will craft a program specifically for you. With consistent retraining, significant changes in alignment and coordination can be achieved in 6-8 weeks with power and strength changes observed in 10-12 weeks.
What should I wear?
Please be sure to wear comfortable clothes and tennis shoes that you can comfortably move around in.
