Cycling - I am Marith Vanhove and I’m 17. I am in my last year at the Topsportschool in Ghent where I am studying modern languages and top sport. I have been racing in competitions at the highest level for 10 years now and later I would really like to build a possible professional career. In addition, I am also very sociable and easy to get on with and I like helping people when they need it. The Etixx products give me the chance to achieve my goals and give the best of myself in training. It also really nice to be able to try out the latest products and share my experiences with my followers. I have had experience using Etixx products for a number of years and I am also very satisfied with them! Becoming an ambassador of my favourite sports nutrition brand is also great motivation to work toward my next big goals!

you can always do a little more.”
My favourite Etixx products
I use Etixx Energy Sport Bars every day, preferably the chocolate and raspberry flavour. To recover properly, I finish off my training session with a Recovery Shake. During competitions, I use the Nutritional Energy Gel to get the best out of my performance. In addition to that, I also like using the Isotonic to stay hydrated during training and in competitions. After strength training in the gym, I go for a High Protein Shake or High Protein Bar.

Obstacle course racing, survival run and athletics - I am an enthusiastic girl who is bursting with energy. I am a student of Tourism & Recreation Management. I love adventurous challenges.

Ambassador since 2020
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.Read more
