Originally, Coach Bewley developed the DWMA while coaching at the University of Dayton. While certified in Gray Cook and Lee Burton’s Functional Movement Screen (FMS) summative assessment, Bewley needed a warm up before exercise in tandem with way to formatively evaluate athletes more frequently and easily. So, he came up with the DWMA to help him and his athletes identify their strengths and weaknesses to target areas that need work. As Bewley began to share his program with peers and colleagues, many expressed interest in purchasing his DWMA program, which in turn, inspired him to create a high-quality, instructional program for the DWMA system.
