I am a fanatical triathlete who is both active and a coach to triathletes on the side (DVO Coaching). Etixx supports me with top-quality (sports) nutrition to improve my performance. I have a range of Etixx products to choose from before, during and after a training session/race so I can always give my body the product it needs.

"Pain is temporary,
quitting lasts forever."
My favourite Etixx products
The Energy Nougat Sport Bar during training is just delicious! In addition, I use the Etixx Isotonic a lot during training. After a strenuous training session I often take the Recovery Shake PRO LINE or Recovery Sport Bar.

Hello, I am Thomas De Bock, 30 years old and working as a doctoral student at the research group of sports management at UGent. In between working hours I run a lot of kilometres, mostly in preparation of a marathon. In the past, I have already tasted European and World Championships but I still have two major goals in my athletics career, namely to run under 2h10 at the marathon and qualifying for the Olympic marathon in 2024.Read more
I am a motivated person who likes to keep busy, you can usually find me with a full diary and a smile on my face. I became an ambassador for Etixx this year, but I have been using the products for much longer. I often suffer from energy dips and I have found the solution to this in Etixx’s products, including the Sport Gummies and the Energy Sport Bars. But, looking forward to the Recovery products afterwards can also increase motivation during training. The Etixx ambassadors team is a great group and I am proud to be a part of it!Read more
