I am very adventurous and don't quickly say “no” to a challenge. I love adrenaline and competition. I try to look after my body and mind as well as possible so that I can explore my limits. Thanks to the Etixx products, I can combine my work as a physiotherapist perfectly with my sport, in terms of preparation, having the right energy during exercise/training and for the recovery period afterwards.

My favourite Etixx products
Nutritional Energy Gel with cola flavour, by far my favourite while exercising. Tastes delicious and fills you with energy instantly! I often take the Energy Sport Bar or Energy Marzipan Sport Bar to work just before a training session to quell any initial feelings of hunger. It’s also pure nutrition for my muscles: Creatine and High Protein Shake.
My greatest sporting achievements
- Participation in the Olympic Games Vancouver 2010 Bobsleigh.
- 3x finisher Grand Raid Nissramont (long tour)
- Winning and making it onto the podium in various big CrossFit competitions

- Snatch: 65kg
- Deep back squat: 115kg
My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021
The current measures make it difficult to plan the season, but we still train almost every day. The CrossFit motto is therefore very appropriate: “expect the unexpected and prepare for the unknown”

I played football in the Dutch Premier League until I was 18. I found out I was talented at other sports (running, cycling etc.) and discovered rowing through my college. I have now been doing the sport for 3 years indoors and another 1 year on the water. After becoming world champion in indoor rowing, my main goal is the Paris Olympic Games in2024 (on the water). I am now entering my second year as an Etixx ambassador. I am very happy to represent a brand that, just like me, always aims to be the best!Read more
Sport was not really my favourite hobby until my 5th son got cancer and running kept me going, literally and figuratively. From 0 to 5km and finally to full marathons (secretly my favourite distance). With perseverance, a good schedule and Etixx this is definitely possible! With support from Etixx, I can achieve these goals and my body gets the right nutrition at the right time.Read more
Running, cycling and strength training
I am addicted to exercise and the feeling of exploring and extending my limits while exercising. Sport is a very large part of my life, which I definitely could not do without now. I have had very good experience with the Etixx products during my long endurance training sessions and with the recovery products. Good quality, nutritious and they taste really delicious.Read more
