Certified Functional Strength Coach


"From a quick glance the CFSC may seem similar to other certifications out there. But once you take a closer look, you will see we are building something that will revolutionize the fitness industry. Even with the current gold standard certification of the strength and conditioning field, all you do is sit down at a computer and answer multiple choice questions. What about the ability to coach athletes and clients? What about being able to modify your athlete's or client's program on the fly when situations occur such as not being able to perform an exercise correctly due to fitness or pain? This is where the whole idea of, “The Art of Coaching” comes in. The ability to address these situations as they occur on the training floor."


 

Functional Movement Systems


"Functional Movement Systems is a company with a mission to help people move better and then move often. The philosophy was introduced in 1995, at a time when there was no systematic tool to identify movement asymmetries or major limitations in functional movement patterns.

The system promotes collaboration between performance and rehabilitation professionals through the use of two tools - the Functional Movement Screen™ and the Selective Functional Movement Assessment™. Both tools evaluate movement but are separated by a clear distinct marker. That marker is pain. If movement produces pain, the individual would be sent through SFMA. If pain is not present, then the FMS is the appropriate tool."


 

Precision Nutrition


"Precision Nutrition is the largest private nutrition coaching and research company in the world. Yes, we do plenty of clinical research and consult with many of the top universities & organizations around. But that's not what sets us apart. Where we're unique is our coaching for clients and professionals. It's personal, it's research-driven, and it's life-changing. Plus, it generates new research that we can apply in the future.
