I further understand that at the conclusion of the exam that I will be provided with a detailed report (“Report Card”) with an analysis of my strength, symmetry, trends and benchmarks.

The Report Card will also include a customized warmup, recovery and/or strengthening for the day of the test. I understand that based on my age, history of soreness and injury, time of year (in-season, off-season), Report Card results and my feedback (based on daily check-in), the Program will provide recommendations designed to reduce the risk of injury by tracking strength and ROM trends over time to identify fatigue and movement restrictions.
