I am Marieke, 28 years old and devoted to CrossFit. CrossFit has become increasingly popular among athletes in the last few years, which makes me very happy! It is a sport that constantly challenges me. I ask a lot of my body and, with Etixx’s support, I can continue to do so.
Number of hours’ training per week
10 - 12 hours
"No challenge, no change."
My favourite Etixx products
I use the Magnesium 100% Bisglycinate PRO LINE and Multimax from Etixx every day. When I’m training, I throw a Sport Hydro Tab in my water bottle to stay sufficiently hydrated. You don't just lose fluid while training, but also other important things such as salts and electrolytes. The Sport Hydro Tab provides this, and it makes the water taste better! After a strenuous training session, I take a High Protein Shake to top up my protein levels for repair and muscle growth.
My personal records
- Deadlift: 153 kg

- 500 meters on rowing machine: 00:01:41
- Half marathon (21km): 01:52:00
My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021
Since there is no CrossFit competition due to Covid and I am using videos, it is a challenge to find a challenge ;) For the year 2021, I am going to work on becoming a stronger version of myself, which will mean I have fewer injuries. So, back to basics and then building up from that. If anyone thinks of a fantastic goal, share it with me!

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
Running, cycling and strength training
I am addicted to exercise and the feeling of exploring and extending my limits while exercising. Sport is a very large part of my life, which I definitely could not do without now. I have had very good experience with the Etixx products during my long endurance training sessions and with the recovery products. Good quality, nutritious and they taste really delicious.Read more
Running, mountain biking and cross duathlon
A positively-minded lover of life, who likes to challenge himself. In the last few years, I have discovered that with discipline and focus you can always get more out of yourself. The use of Etixx products also plays an important role in this. For me, this has become a vital part of my daily routine. Another fun fact, it's also thanks to Etixx that I met my girlfriend, who just like me, is a real go-getter - a perfect match!Read more
