I am primarily someone who doesn't give up easily and who sees everything positively. In addition to running for myself recreationally (60-100 km/week), I am also Charlotte Van Hese’s trainer. The aim is to make her a real top athlete without her losing the pleasure of running. The Etixx products are a fantastic asset for my (now much less) injury-prone body. I am very proud to be a part of this top team!

tough runners do!"
My favourite Etixx products
- Isotonic Drink Energy Gel during training sessions: easy to use, the body doesn't object to the gels, delicious.
- Recovery Shake PRO LINE (banana) after strenuous training sessions and competitions: a shake that I find hard to resist. Really delicious and also super useful for recovery!
- Collagen Complex every day: injury prevention in a pot! Flavourless is a plus point here!
- Carbo-Gy/ Natural Oat Bar/ Energy Sport Bar before training sessions (especially if I plan to go for a run after work): handy energy-deliverers that I switch around according to the training session/time of day. The Natural Oat Bars in particular taste heavenly!
My personal record
Not giving up after a lot of injuries, 3 operations and literally having to start again from 0.
My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021
For 2021, I mainly want to be able to cover a lot of kilometres. We are planning competitions later (partly due to Corona)!

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
