Last year FitChicks, as well as Oxygen Health & Fitness, underwent a big transformation as a change of clientele saw some long term FitChicks leave the scene and a whole score of new girls step up to challenge themselves. This change in personnel had a profound effect at bringing everyone closer together and the FitChicks community is stronger for it. All three of our FitChicks Kiama timeslots are now very tight groups with friendly personalities and a hard working but fun loving attitude that sees the girls push, motivate and encourage each other through their workout sessions.

Functional Movement Screen
Put simply, the 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.
The FMS simplifies the concept of movement and its impact on the body. Its streamlined system has benefits for everyone involved – individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians.
Communication – The FMS utilizes simple language, making it easy for individuals, exercise professionals, and doctors to communicate clearly about progress and treatment.
Evaluation – The screen effortlessly identifies asymmetries and limitations, diminishing the need for extensive testing and analysis.
Standardization – The FMS creates a functional baseline to mark progress and provides a means to measure performance.
Safety – The FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. It also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.
Corrective Strategies – The FMS can be applied at any fitness level, simplifying corrective strategies of a wide array of movement issues. It identifies specific exercises based on individual FMS scores to instantly create customized treatment plans.
