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.

My favourite Etixx products
I use the Magnesium Instant Sticks almost every day for good recovery, along with the Recovery Shake PRO LINE. Collagen Complex is also an essential part of this. Since my injury, I use this either in my shake or in a glass of water to maintain my tendons with the right protein and vitamin C. For strenuous training, I also use the Arginine 1000 pills so that I get less tired.
My greatest sporting achievements
Silver medal in the National Championship half marathon women’s masters (2018)

My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021
I would love to run in another National Championship again. On the track or on the road for a half marathon. Unfortunately there is no date set yet.

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!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

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
