Default Functional Movement Screening?

One of the personal training groups at the gym I've started at offered this as part of there initial sign-up package, not sure if it was useful or pseudoscience. Is this something that goes beyond what a good trainer could correct for? For background, I'm just looking to work with a trainer to learn proper lifting technique. I'd certainly be open for whatever a good trainer was telling me (like if I just wasn't cut out for a certain kind of lift), I just don't want to get caught up in a lot of PT-esque style exercises if they ultimately aren't warranted or are overly specialized.

Can you provide more information? It's not really clear what the content is.

Here's a critical article about FMS:

Also, FMS got crapped with researches, I never saw research validating it's use.

@Determinism I only did a little bit of Googling, basically it's some sort of movement analysis trainers can do. All the initial stuff I saw was trying to sell me something (like becoming FMS certified). @zLeeKo confirmed my suspicions that it isn't offering anything that's been validated/accepted.

Default Functional Movement Systems

I know just a little bit about FMS and that is the developer, Gray Cook, is a well known CSCS and PT. The focus of FMS is to look at a series of dynamic movements and spot areas of weakness to prevent injuries before you head into your training/workout program. Gray Cook has some YouTube vids on FMS.

Personally, Id go for FMS depending on the qualifications of the certified person. You can check the FMS what they look at, etc. on the YouTube videos for more info.
