Eye on Fitness: Fitness The Right Way

Posted: Updated:

Whenever you are involved in a fitness program, the key is doing it the "right" way. There's a new program at the YMCA called Functional Movement Systems. It's designed to help the participants move better. Here's this week's Eye on Health.

One of the two exercise physiologists at Minot's YMCA who are certified in "Functional Movement Systems" is setting up a demonstration of the type of exercise they do as part of the screening in this program. In this exercise Kyra is looking at core stability, because most every movement begins with a strong core, in other words, strong abs.

At the Y, some of the classes, athletes and other exercisers are often given an FMS screening as part of a fitness assessment. Its a 15 minute screening that will determine strengths and weaknesses, and identify movement patterns, then the trainer can build a program with that person in mind.

Kyra Brookins, Exercise Physiologist "to really promote better movement patterns, whether its an injury or to promote better performance for an athlete"

Any person, any age, at any fitness level, can benefit from the FMS screening and follow-up program. Kyra says its a great tool for trainers to create a more structured, and safe fitness program.

"injury prevention, better health"

Trainers that are monitoring the progress an athlete or exerciser, to create the most beneficial movement patterns and exercises for that person, Functional Movement Systems through Minot's YMCA. For Eye on Health I'm Carla Burbidge
