Triathlon - I am passionate about sports. Since I was little I admired professional athletes because I grew up in a family passionate about sports. When I started practicing triathlon, a sport that brought together three passions, I dreamed of being what I am now, and being able to participate in some Olympic Games. I feel fortunate to be part of the Etixx team, but above all, to maintain it over time and that they continue to trust me and my work. It is a luxury to work with a brand like this, which makes you feel valued and loved.


My discipline

Triathlon -> Universidad De Alicante (UA)
 

Hours of training per week

30 hours

 

"Bad times are
the best learning."

My favourite Etixx products

The Etixx product that I use the most on a daily basis is undoubtedly the Recovery Shake, which helps me regain fatigue after each workout. Depending on how the training was and what I need to recover, I take the High Protein shake, which gives me a recovery bonus.

During exercise, every day in each of the swimming or cycling training sessions I do, I take Isotonic, which helps me hydrate myself and replace the electrolytes lost during exercise.

In competition, undoubtedly the Isotonic Energy Gel and Nutritional Energy Gel, depending on how hard it is in terms of the weather. If we expect a race with a lot of heat, I resort to Isotonic Energy Gel, which helps me hydrate myself and recover glucose levels faster.


My greatest sporting achievements

As the triathlon is not measured by time, I can only highlight my participation in the 10km route of Laredo, with a time of 29'04 ''. I have participated in some medium distance triathlon, such as the Zarautz triathlon and the 70.3 in Cascais, where I achieved a victory.

Ambassador since 2020

Roller skating and Ice skating - I am fanatical about everything I do. Once I start something, in sport, at university or anywhere else, I try to do my best. Last year was my first year as an Etixx ambassador and this fits in perfectly with this vision. This year, I have really noticed a big difference when training. I always had the right amount of energy with the Etixx products and the recovery support afterwards was better. Consequently, the quality of my training sessions clearly improved.
