ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
The B.O.N.A. Foundation was founded by Keith Tobias Scruggs in September 2009. Keith was an over weight adolescent. He weighed 133lbs in the 3rd grade, 190 in the 7th, and then grew four inches and lost 20 lbs in the 8th. This weight loss was due to the meanest football coach in the world (or so it seemed), Coach Ray McGowan. Coach McGowan’s philosophy was no sugar during football season.
In the year that the weight came off, and seeing how everyone’s attitude toward him changed, he developed an ever burning passion for good health and fitness. Throughout the years, Keith has won various drug-free Power Lifting and Body Building Contests. The peak in his career came at Texas Tech University when he became the ADFPA (American Drug Free Power Lifting Association – Now USA Power Lifting) Collegiate National Champion. He held the 198lb Dead Lift Record with a lift of 650lbs for over 5 years. This record secured his place as a lifter in the elite BONA Power Lifting Team that included Larry Bolden, Derek Jenkins, Eric Fomby, and Coaches Jan and Terry Todd. Keith later coined the secret acronym BONA into Building On Natural Ability.
It was during that time at Texas Tech that Keith developed the hobby of helping others with their fitness journey. He was the President of the Body Building and Power Lifting Club, and became certified as a personal trainer. His passion for good health was contagious and quickly spread to others.
In 2000, Keith left his career as an engineer to pursue his fitness interests full time creating BONA Industries, which has developed into BONA Supplements www.bonasupplements.com, BONA Fitness www.bonafitness.com, and BONA Wellness www.bonawellness.com. Keith has spent countless hours helping clients in many different aspects of their fitness. These clients include everyone from young people and house wives, to professional athletes, corporate wellness programs. He was also the host of the Keith Tobias - Healthy Investor Radio Show for several years on Business Radio 650 AM.
Keith’s ever burning desire to assist individuals in their journey has spread through the stakeholders of the BONA Foundation, and will now be available for overweight and underprivileged children. The Foundation will provide unparalleled opportunities for success to those children who have significant financial and weight obstacles that could not be overcome otherwise.
