There is a lot of info out there and certifications besides Gray. It really depends on if you want this for your own/client contact knowlege or one that will look good for a job/employer…
“Biomechanics” is what you may want to look at as far as becoming more educated on: how parts of the body “mobilize” vs. “stabilize” and how to train either depending on a client’s needs or weaknesses.
Best around for scapular knowledge!!
Hello Jennifer Landry,
The best depends on the clients you help and your employer. Then you want NCCA and CECs approved by your current certification. I like the functional training and older adult courses, then corrective exercise. Since you are increasing your knowledge, take what interests you the most and add on with the other courses that catch your interest.

Having been FMS certified for a while now, I can say that it is very well worth pursuing. I do a Movement Screen on every client that starts a program at our facility. The feedback that the client gets is often eye-opening. Also, the functionalmovement.com website offers a variety of progressions for corrective exercises based on functional movement deficiencies presented in a Movement Screen.
But as others have stated, there are other great minds and certs out there when it comes to mobility and stability. You may want to check out Gary Gray (Gray Institute – “the GodFather” of functional training). Also Kelley Starrett has some good stuff out there (although his mobility approach is a little more aggressive).
