The Nutrition Oasis serves as a resource room, providing fuel for athletes before, during, and after training. It includes access to Gatorade products, Made to Order smoothies, recovery beverages, fresh fruit, Made to Order sandwiches, Greek yogurt, trail mix, and many other high performance snacks for all Olympic sport athletes. A new and improved Oasis opened during the summer of 2013 and includes a much larger space to accommodate a full-service smoothie bar, nutrition education area, food prep and storage space, an additional sports nutrition office, and room for small catered events. This space allows the Sports Nutrition Program to continue to improve how it serves Virginia Tech student-athletes from a food and nutrition standpoint.
The Nutrition Oasis exemplifies the VT Sports Nutrition program's philosophy that Food is your Fuel. The majority of items served are whole foods and nutrient dense, which the staff strongly believes is the fundamentals of improving athletic performance and overall health.
