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!

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 2023
- Run an average of +300km/month
- Some Etixx (running) events 😉
