FMC Level 2: Advanced Movement Coaching

Agility and mobility education for fitness professionals

The FMC2 workshop goes beyond the initial movement analysis sessions, and takes movement coaching to the next level. In this session we explore advanced movement coaching, non-traditional movement patterns, mobility, agility, and coordination. We discuss how the science of fascia, motor skill development, internal organ systems, and overall health are complemented by effective movement training, and often hampered by traditional training methods.

The skills learned in this session are invaluable for helping clients overcome their physical (and mental) limitations, reduce injuries, have more energy, and enjoy exercise more. This session is a master class in how to more effectively use your body, and how to better coach clients towards movement skill acquisition. We build on the coaching framework and skills from FMC1, and set the foundation for movement excellence both inside and outside the gym.
