Sport was not really my favourite hobby until my 5th son got cancer and running kept me going, literally and figuratively. From 0 to 5km and finally to full marathons (secretly my favourite distance). With perseverance, a good schedule and Etixx this is definitely possible! With support from Etixx, I can achieve these goals and my body gets the right nutrition at the right time.


My discipline

Running -> AV de Liemers


Number of hours’ training per week

4 - 6 hours

 

"Work hard,
everthing is possible."

My favourite Etixx products

  • I use Magnesium Instant Stick every day.
  • Multimax tablets autumn/winter and when training increases
  • Arginine 1000, 1.5 - 2 months before the marathon, to reduce tiredness after strenuous training sessions.
  • During long endurance runs, my favourite, Sport Gummies, great during long training sessions!
  • Carbo-Gy 3 hours before long endurance runs
  • Sport Hydro Tab, in the water bottle during training sessions in warm weather
  • Isotonic (in 500 ml water) 10 min before a long endurance run
  • Recovery Shake Chocolate (with unsweetened almond milk) after a long endurance run or interval training

CrossFit, weightlifting and bobsleigh

I am 23 years old and just graduated as a master in LO & Movement Sciences. I grew up in a gym and did competitive gymnastics until I was 18 years old. Then I made the switch to CrossFit and since a year also weightlifting. I live for sport, also academically and really any sport can fascinate me. I have big ambitions for the future and I am determined to achieve them one by one.

Running

Hellooo! I am Inge, soon to be 30. Although I used to prefer shorter distances (400m), I am currently enjoying long endurance runs in particular. I have completed my first half marathon. 2020 was supposed to be the year of my marathon, but unfortunately... Luckily, running is something we can also enjoy on our own. I have now been an Etixx ambassador for just over a year. Although I was totally not into sports nutrition before, I have now more than discovered the benefits. Using the right products at the right time really can make a world of difference, not just before, during or after your training runs, but certainly also in competitions. And no, you definitely don't have to be a professional athlete for that. The main lesson I’ve learned thanks to my experience with Etixx is that your body works like a car. With the right fuel and a small amount of timely maintenance, you will always get further.
