Meet Team Refuel: NBA superstar Chris Bosh, Olympic athlete Apolo Ohno and University of Minnesota hockey strength coach Cal Dietz [one of STACK's coaches] top the list. Team Refuel is searching the country for someone else to join its roster of elite athletes, coaches and trainers “who know low-fat chocolate milk is a ‘natural’ for post-workout recovery.” And that elite athlete just might be you.

Team Refuel advocates drinking low-fat chocolate milk after a workout, claiming it naturally contains most of the nutrients other recovery drinks must add in the lab. Plus, low-fat chocolate milk has the right mix of carbs and protein to refuel muscles after a tough workout.

The Team Refuel website offers a handy breakdown of how low-fat chocolate milk repairs and rebuilds muscles, rehydrates and replaces electrolytes. And they back up their claims with a variety of studies showing just how chocolate milk helps you gain lean muscle and refuel your body.

If this sounds like a team you want to join, go to RefuelWithChocolateMilk.com to apply as an individual or as a group. Applicants will be voted on, and each month, the five athletes with the most votes will be invited to join Team Refuel. Each will receive a $250 grant. The five groups with the most votes will each receive $500.

Applications are accepted from the 1st to the 15th of each month. If you are  selected, consider using your grant for training equipment or camps that will improve your athleticism.
