Enjoying life is very important to me so family time, travelling, foodies but definitely running are my priorities. I can also combine my running story with the rest so that is definitely a plus.

10h

 

"The more miles i run,
the more food for my belly."

My conviction for choosing Etixx as sports nutrition partner

In recent years, I have been experimenting with different brands and have not had a fixed line in my sports nutrition. It is definitely an added value to find all the products within one brand, especially if it is well supported.

Running, cycling, swimming and strength training

I have been doing sport since I was young and it’s super to inspire and motivate people through my blog or Instagram channel. Etixx products improve my performance and I exercise more efficiently. My 1st marathon would not have been a success without Etixx!

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.

Bobsleigh

After a (youth) career in athletics, I switched to the Belgian bobsleigh team. After a few years, I retrained from brakewoman to pilot, while also completing my Masters in physiotherapy. In 2015, I was employed part-time by Sport Flanders as pilot and I am now about to start my 10th bobsleigh season. Qualifying for the Olympic Winter Games in 2018 was an amazing feeling and made me dream of doing more in 2022, in Beijing. I now practise my sport full time, while also being a proud Godmother to my nephew, the apple of my eye. I am very proud to be part of the Etixx ambassadors team, a super-talented and motivated group of athletes and sports enthusiasts. Being supported by such a professional company with good-quality, clean products gives me an extra push to achieve my dream of a top result in Beijing 2022!
