The follow-up orientation will review workouts and make adjustments to exercise routines as needed. We recommend two appointments for beginners. Appointments can be made at the Front Desk (ages 15+). FREE TO YMCA MEMBERS.

Functional Movement Screen

A screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns. The score of the screening can help target potential problems and track the progress of corrective exercises that will be recommended. Schedule an appointment with Alvin White, ACSM CPT, to do your screening. In a follow-up appointment Alvin will help you identify those exercises that will help restore proper movement and build strength. Because no one moves perfectly, everyone can benefit from being screened.
See Front Desk to schedule an appointment. Screening and follow-up appointment takes approximately 15 minutes each.
