NBFA: Committed to advocate a drug-free fitness community

“Many athletes are into it, but nobody wants’ to talk about it. It’s an unspoken taboo”, Reijo del Prado, a National Body Building Title holder boldly confessed about the realities of Steroid use among athletes today in a media launch of  Natural Body Building and Fitness Association - NBFA.

 In a small gathering of fitness enthusiasts and health advocates, the Natural Body Building and Fitness Association was officially launched at the Fitness Exchange Gym in Makati city, to advocate and promote body building and fitness and maintain competitive edge even without the use of illegal muscle enhancement such as steroids.

The mission of NBFA is to promote natural body building as a safe lifestyle alternative that can discourage the use of dangerous drugs for athletic and recreational pursuit. NBFA envisioned itself to be a globally recognized advocacy group that acts a conduit in preserving high integrity of sportsmanship by establishing high level of community awareness and interest. 

Officers and Directors of NBFA Inc.
In the launch, NBFA founder, Mr. Reijo del Prado gave his testimony how he was once a user of steroids to further his career in the sports of body building. He also shared the consequences of his actions where the organizers of body building competition stripped him from the title he won and was suspended to compete for two years. From his experience, that almost lead his career in a total lost, he encountered an enlightenment to clean up his action and vowed not to return to his old ways ever again.

First set of officers of NBFA Inc. taking their oath...
After a short furlough in body building, he encountered several like-minded body building enthusiasts who are immersed with the “practice” and are committed to pursue body building without any blemish of illegal drugs.
