Marcel Van Delft

Marcel Van Delft

My name is Marcel from Delft, an avid cyclist, who has been cycling since 2005. I have a broad interest in cycling sports and regularly wearing a number on my shirt for a training race is good for the adrenaline. I like to share my passion for the sport and in doing so I try to inspire and motivate others. In 2019, I was asked to become an ambassador for Etixx NL, which I agreed to with very little hesitation because I was already very familiar with Etixx through the cycling world. I am proud of the support Etixx gives me to achieve my (sporting) goals and I am very happy use my experience with Etixx products to help other athletes.

"More Pain, More Gain."

My favourite Etixx products

EVERY DAY:

  • Multimax. The perfect supplement to my daily diet. At breakfast, I take 2 tablets to give my body the right amount of daily vitamins and minerals, which keeps my body in top condition for optimum performance.
  • Magnesium Instant Stick. I take this 2 hours before I go to sleep, which makes me sleep more peacefully and my body absorbs the magnesium better.


DURING:

  • Isotonic. My favourite isotonic sports drink for years, I always have some in the cupboard. This definitely goes in my drinking bottle for competitions/training sessions.
  • Energy Sport Bar and the Nutritional Energy Gel. These are always in the back pocket of my cycling shirt
  • Carbo-Gy I use this carb-loader in preparation for a competition and during long endurance training sessions, as well as in the winter months because you can drink it warm.


AFTER:

  • Recovery Shake PRO LINE. I take this immediately after more intensive training sessions or long, endurance training sessions to replenish any lack of proteins and calories. This means my muscles can recover in an ideal way. A truly top product!


My personal records

  • 14x “Friese fietselfstedentocht” (The “Eleven Cities Cycling Tour” in Friesland)
  • Rondje Nederland
  • Schleck Granfondo

I'm always looking to challenge myself and I constantly want to push my own boundaries and break my own records. Being involved in sport is a must and gives you a healthy mind. As an Etixx ambassador, I try to get that message across and encourage people to start exercising. The Etixx products provide that extra boost to deal with training sessions and to help get my body in top condition and maintain it.

Athletics

High-level athlete but also military reservist. In my everyday life I am sunny, in a jovial mood. But once on the track, the lioness in me takes over. I have often been given a quality which is the fact of having a steely mind.
