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.


My discipline

Trail running and ultrarunning -> Add Tongeren
 

Number of hours’ training per week

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.

Athletics - Pole Vault

I am Fleur, 23 years old, pole vaulter and physiotherapy student. I have been on the athletics track since I was 6 years old. At 15, I specialised in pole vaulting. Sport is my hobby and my passion. I am a competitive animal, love to push my physical limits and I am driven to reach my goals. Besides the athletics track, you can also find me among my school books, on the racing bike or in a cosy coffee bar. Etixx products support me to perform optimally during busy training and competition periods and thus further pursue my goals.

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.
