This book provides an overview of the research and history that Gray Cook and Brett Jones sells at FunctionalMovement.com. While dated, the techniques explained for the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and Selective Functional Movement Assessment SFMA are really the same today as they were then.
In this review, I am not going to cover the FMS or SFMA components that are discussed in the book. The reason being is that there is ample discussion of these two services from the hundreds of people who have taken the certifications. The book does cover more than just the FMS and SFMA, and that’s the parts I am going to discuss. In addition, if you don’t have the cash to pay for the FMS or SFMA certifications, this book does provide a very detailed explanation of how to perform these techniques.
