Functional Movement Screens and Sports Performance Testing

We are very pleased to announce that Compete Sports Performance & Rehab will now be offering Functional Movement Screens (FMS) and Performance Testing services. The FMS is a reliable baseline to screen and evaluate movement which is key to providing information valuable in devising performance programs as well as risk of injury and is currently used in the NFL Combine. Compete's Performance Testing includes weight, bodyfat, 20 yard dash, pro agility shuttle run, vertical jump and kneeling medicine ball throw. More tests such as 40 yard dash and bench press may be added as needed.

We suggest that the services be repeated every two to three months to see the athlete's personal gains.
