This weekend me and Lindsay are down in Garden Grove taking a seminar on FMS (functional movement systems), the same system that was recently mentioned in a New York Times article regarding Stanford’s strength and conditioning coach, and how by using FMS, he has completely revolutionized athletic development. We hope to adopt the same principles to screen our athletes at Paradiso using standardized testing specific to each athlete, giving us a blue print on the exact strengths and weakness of each athlete. This way we can help prevent injury and improve performance. I am personally very excited to get this going because once again, this gives us another tool that sets us apart from other gyms in SoCal, nationally, and internationally. More details soon to come!
