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.

Foundational Athleticism includes the most foundational nine measures of athletic performance determined by Woodgrove Prime and the standards of the physical conditioning industry, with each of the tests featured in an existing professional combine (specifically NFL, NBA, NHL, MLS). These nine elements are measured across all sports which also provide a cross section of "pure" athleticism.
Our sports professional staff at Woodgrove Prime then compares each tested athlete's score to normative data specific to their age and sport. Additionally we provide a take-home performance document with recommended areas to improve.
A series of physical tests compliment the "Foundational Athleticism" component by adding to the specific demands of different sports. The current list of sports includes Baseball, Basketball, Football, Golf, Hockey, Lacrosse, Rugby, Soccer, Softball, Extreme Sports and Tennis. Additionally an "All-Other/General Sport" category features the most common physical tests beyond the foundation for athletes who do not fit the sports previously mentioned.
The tests were determined by a cross section of experts within the individual sports as well as within the sports performance industry (Combine 360 - the global measurement standard for improved performance 2012).
