Running - 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

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.

Kayak - Etixx has now been my sports nutrition partner for 1 year. With the help of their products, I have managed to gain an extra 4kg of muscle mass without gaining any fat. Etixx is very helpful in providing support on nutrition advice. The group of ambassadors is an extremely nice and tight group and I feel that all the ambassadors can count on each other.
