Robin Hendrix

I am a distance runner of 28 years old and I live in Kapelle-op-den-Bos. I started taking part in international championships at the age of 22, and the Olympic Games in Tokyo were the biggest event I ever had the privilege of taking part in. Until last year, I was still studying for my bachelor's degree in architecture at the LUCA school of arts in Brussels. Since this year, I have been practising my sport professionally under contract at Topsport Belgian Defence. I dream of achieving a top 10 place at a World Championship or Olympic Games.

My favourite Etixx products

Recovery Shake PRO LINE: The ideal recovery shake I need after heavy workouts.

Iron 125 AA: I use it to go on altitude training, where it is crucial not to have an iron deficiency. In addition, the included vitamins ensure good absorption.

Night Protein Shake: Helps me to recover well during the night from a heavy training or competition.


Why are you satisfied that Etixx has become the new sports nutrition partner of the Runners' lab Athletics Team?

Etixx's extensive product range makes it easy for me to use products I feel comfortable with and which are necessary in the sport I practice. Moreover, Etixx has many years of experience in sports nutrition and its products are of very high quality.
