I just finished the CAFS program and it is terrific! Lenny Parracino and Pat McCloskey did an awesome job of systematically communicating very practical information.

Every aspect of the CAFS online course was incredible. It was organized on every level, from the outline to the very last video. I wanted to applaud you all for investing the man-hours into developing a well-thought-out system for Applied Functional Science®.
