Functional Range Assessment

Functional Range Assessment

The Functional Range Assessment (FRA) is a diagnostic tool for examining how you move on a joint-by-joint basis. It is a measurement-based assessment system that objectively measures a person’s movement capacity for each joint. The FRA uses baseline measurements to provide an objective and scientific assessment of movement capacity, thus removing guesswork and enabling objective progress tracking.

Don't guess—get assessed

Results Guaranteed

We use the Functional Range Assessment findings to create movement baselines for your unique body, like progress pictures, but for your joints. FRA helps improve your movement capacity by providing objective measures for each joint. Additionally, if you suffer from chronic pain, FRA can help alleviate it by identifying and addressing the root causes. Then, if you have pain or issues of any kind, we’ll get to the root cause and give you actionable solutions to get you on a path toward success.

You will walk away from the FRA having made discoveries about your body and how best to make improvements.

How well can you move?


The Problem

Most of us go through life tolerating things like neck and back pain or a shoulder that doesn’t seem to move right.

Regrettably, there’s a widespread belief that stiff and achy joints or chronic pain are just part of life, leading many to endure it and hope it improves over time.

It rarely does.

The problem solved by Functional Range Assessment


The Process

The standard approach to exercise looks at things from a “functional” standpoint: can you squat, do push-ups, or deadlift heavy weight? This approach works for some but leaves most people scratching their heads as to why things don’t feel right.

At Motive Training, we don’t just focus on a few key areas. We take a comprehensive approach, examining all the joints in your body. We use advanced measurement procedures as part of our Functional Range Assessment (FRA) to assess joint passive to active ranges of motion. We also incorporate soft tissue assessment to influence the central nervous system (CNS) for greater joint range of motion and strength. This thorough approach ensures that no aspect of your joint health is overlooked.

From there, we can see how well each joint coordinates with the others to create solid, healthy movement.

The Results

After your Functional Range Assessment, our coaches will customize a training plan that gets results and promotes longevity and a pain-free lifestyle. The FRA helps improve body control, which is essential for functional range conditioning and mobility training. Additionally, the FRA contributes to improving mobility, providing safe and effective relief by alleviating sore spots and increasing relaxation.

Say goodbye to tight hips, lower back pain, and faulty ankles.
