Combo Course: FMS (Level 1) + FMS (Level 2)

Did you know that AC Milan (ITA), Bayern Munich (GER), Borussia Dortmund (GER), Ajax Amsterdam (NED), Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and many Premier League teams have already applied Functional Movement Screen?


FMS is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality in individuals with no current pain complaint or known musculoskeletal injury.

These movement patterns are designed to provide observable performance of basic loco motor, manipulative and stabilizing movements by placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility and motor control is not utilized.


Why do functional movement limitations and asymmetries matter?


Abnormal patterns in fundamental movements impair movement quality. This leads to asymmetries, motor control dysfunction, loss of propriception and stability. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.

Relationship Between Functional Movement Patterns and Sports Performance


According to the performance pyramid, having correct functional movement patterns is essential for building and improving physical and sports performance.

Who can apply FMS?


Doctors, physiotherapists, trainers, exercise professionals and students.

FMS Level 1




1. Gain a historical perspective on movement
2. Independently and accurately learn to administer the Functional Movement Screen within a reasonable amount of time
3. Understand the difference between mobility dysfunction and motor control dysfunction
4. Interpret the difference between the raw and final score of the Functional Movement Screen
5. Independently and accurately understand how to interpret the scoring system of the Functional Movement Screen
6. Assign corrective exercises based on a FMS score

The Level 1 course is designed to teach the exercise professional how to effectively provide a movement profile and corrective exercise intervention for active individuals. Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents 7 movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, 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 following patterns will be screened:

1. Deep Squat
2. Hurdle Step
3. Inline Lunge
4. Shoulder Mobility
5. Active Straight-Leg Raise
6. Trunk Stability Push-Up
7. Rotary Stability

The goal of this workshop is to introduce you and your staff to the benefits of utilizing this orthopedic screening process since functional movement patterns are the base for core training. At the heart of the system are the Functional Movement Screen score and the movement patterns, which are directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

The FMS (level 2) Advanced Corrective Exercises workshop is designed for the FMS Specialist who wants more insight into the system. The focus will be on using the screen to direct your exercise recommendations and progressions. There will be additional assessments and functional exercises and how they influence the FMS. 

Key Concepts: 

Remove the Negative
Performance vs Durability
Are you Correcting or conditioning?
Are you targeting the Weak Link?
Challenge vs Difficult.

This workshop will include lectures, demonstrations and plenty of lab experience. The practical part includes lots of ‘advanced corrective exercise essentials’, such as chopping and lifting, dead-lifting variations and rolling techniques! You will learn new additional tests and functional exercises and learn how these will influence the FMS! Important parts of the Popular Secrets DVD-series are integrated in the course.

If the announced registration fee is in a foreign currency, participants shall pay the equivalent in Turkish Lira according to the effective foreign exchange rate of the Central Bank of Turkey on the given payment day.
