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.

Trail running, running, cycling, and triathlon
Sport has been a part of my life since I was a child. When I discovered trail running through my climbing partner at the end of 2015, this sport grew into my biggest passion next to cycling. Covering ultra-distances over inhospitable terrain. Overcoming yourself, nature and the elements after an endless battle. Finishing a challenging trail run or skyrace gives me great satisfaction. Running gives me the faith and mental strength to keep going at all times. Both on a professional, personal and sports level. Etixx is an important link in this chain. You find the necessary willpower, determination and physical capability within yourself. But having the right nutrition before, during and after exercise can sometimes be the key to success.Read more
I am an athlete who is not easily satisfied with a performance. I always want to do better than the previous race and keep improving my personal records. I like to learn quickly. Sometimes I try to imitate or learn a technique by watching other athletes. I am very motivated during training and I don't give up easily, but sometimes I dare to let my head hang down when things don't go as I had hoped. I am always open to humour and jokes on and off the slopes.Read more
