Advanced Athletic Evaluation
PFSP's advanced athletic evaluation provides the athlete with a complete picture their overall athleticism. We are able to provide critical and valuable information to any professional athlete that will be a comprehensive review of their body, athletic condition, and methods to reduce and prevent injury.
- Statement of Goals
- Statement of Strengths/Weaknesses
- Nutritional Behavioral Questionnaire & Profile
- Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
- Sport Specific Power, Speed, and Agility Testing
- Foot Strike/Balance Testing (sport-determined)
- Static Flexibility/Joint System ROM-Symmetry Testing Specific to Your Sport
The key things the athlete and/or coach will take away is a firm understanding and inventory of their body, both from a base and higher-level functional pattern. Our mission is to enable the athlete to be a better, more efficient and effective version of themselves with a more targeted approach to training, leading to improved results. Until we know how to train you we can not help you achieve your goals, our evaluation process helps us figure out how to properly train your body.
