What We Know

“For our 21 year old son, Jordan, Yomi Karade and I. F. P. have been a Godsend.
I. F. P. allows other areas, beyond the physical, to develop. Social interaction abilities and motor planning are just two such areas that are fostered in the environment that Yomi and I.F. P. provide. Jordan has not only become more physically fit, improving his posture and his endurance, but he also has greatly overcome motor planning challenges, thus increasing self-esteem and confidence .Jordan consistently looks forward to his workouts with Yomi. We, his parents, consistently look forward to witnessing more and more development and growth in Jordan’s many accomplishments that he achieves with all that I. F. P. and Yomi Karade extraordinarily provide.”

“My son, Brian, has been training with Yomi for eight months, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Brian works out twice a week in a program that Yomi designed specifically for him. His posture has improved, his strength has increased, and, best of all, he smiles throughout each session.”
