Team Beef Virginia

Lean protein is an essential part of an active lifestyle to rebuild muscle and shorten recovery time. Team Beef Virginia is a community of athletes that understand and value the importance of nutrition in their training regimen. The Virginia Beef Council, along with 23,000+ cattle producers across the state, sponsors these athletes in order to fuel them and foster an environment for them to make BOLD differences in their sports and their abilities through the power of beef. 

Be BOLD: Push yourself to new limits. Whether you're a runner or a mountain climber, there is room to accomplish things you didn't know your body could do. More literally, BOLD stands for Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet. Beef packs a punch when it comes to nutrition, helping your body recover faster and fueling you for the finish!
