Functional Movement Screening (FMS)

Functional Movement Screening (FMS)

It’s important to identify muscle dysfunction before starting a strength training or cardiovascular program to prevent injuries. FMS is widely used among physical therapists, strength coaches, and personal trainers to help participants recognize imbalances and potential injuries.

Body Composition (BodPod)

Body Composition (BodPod)

The BodPod uses measurements of body volume and mass to precisely calculate amounts of fat and fat-free mass. The BodPod assessment will allow you to:

  • Accurately measure body fat percentage – a key metric of overall health and fitness.
  • Track changes over time in fat mass and fat-free mass.
  • Calculate resting metabolic rate as well as total calories burned per day at four different levels of physical activity.


  • BodPod assessments are conducted at the Recreation and Wellness Center 123 SE Harvard Street Minneapolis, MN 55455. 

Individual Assessment

An individual BodBod assessment takes approximately 10 — 15 minutes to complete. However, we advise to have about 30 minutes open in your schedule in case of technical difficulties.
