Hi, I am a Ghent masters student studying Sports Management at UGent. As well as being a football trainer (SV Zulte-Waregem), activity leader and manager (Kazou and Route du Soleil) and a volunteer at the Ghent Red Cross, I am first and foremost a keen sportsman. After competitive swimming and football, I set my sights on extreme challenges: running 100km, Marathon des Sables, swimming the channel Dover-Calais, etc.
Number of hours’ training per week

My favourite Etixx products
During long training sessions, I mainly use the Isotonic thirst-quencher, since eating large amounts is not easy while running. After a training session, I use the Recovery Shake (kiwi/raspberry), and after an intensive/interval training/long training session (>2.5 hours) the Recovery Shake PRO LINE (I can recommend banana). During a long cycle, I use the Energy Marzipan Sport Bar as an extra, because it fills you up and marzipan is a secret guilty pleasure of mine.

(Half) marathon, triathlon and yoga
Sport has been a key part of my life since I was a child. I spent years searching for the sport that would give me the most satisfaction. From dance, to judo, even to gymnastics and fitness. But nothing could match the feeling that running still gives me after all these years, time after time. I have found my release, my passion. A way to forget everything for a while and to prove to myself that I can do more than I ever thought I could.Read more
