Level 2 and 3 are more geared to fitness professionals, but again are still very helpful for the public who is looking to expand their knowledge of movement, fitness, and health. If you have a body, and move it each day, you will benefit from this workshop series!
Second, FMS is also very standardized, and not typical of many common gym exercises (that’s part of the point). Our FMC protocol is based on the 7 Primal or Foundational movement patterns (Push, Pull, Hinge, Lunge, Squat, Gait, Rotate), as well as scapular and pelvic bracing strategies. We teach you how to gain competence in performing the primal movements, coach these skills, and effectively evaluate movement as part of a highly interactive onboarding session for a client. This process builds differentiation, rapport, expertise, sets a foundation for program design, and future client sessions.
FMS and Primal Pattern Coaching work well in conjunction with each other. FMS is great for ongoing “check-ins” and to evaluate the effectiveness of the movement coaching you’ve provided to your client.
While we cover many of the animal movement styles in Level 2, the FMC workshop series takes a more practical approach to foundational movement patterns, and focusses on the coaching aspects of technique (alignment and activation) throughout each primal pattern and exercise variation. If you are a personal trainer or fitness instructor, you will see a much more positive impact on your business with the skills provided in the FMC series.
