Fernando Alarza Vicente

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 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.

Running, Cycling and fitness

I am a happy Brabant girl, who swapped going to the pub for running. After I beat breast cancer in 2011, I made a change of direction. It seems it was a good decision as I’m still very passionate about it. Hopefully, there will be many more great times over the various distances; I actually enjoy all distances. I am now back on the road after an injury. I am very happy that Etixx has continued to believe in me, and with their products I am convinced that there are still many good things ahead in terms of running. I am very grateful for this wonderful support, it helps me to recover faster and be able to train harder so I can reach my goals.
