Stijn Fincioen

I am Stijn Fincioen and I have been doing athletics for over 25 years now. In addition to being an athlete, I am also a ‘Trainer A’ [top-level trainer] for middle distance/long distance. I now pass on my experience and knowledge to my athletes at Olympic Brugge and the West-Vlaamse Alliantie (WVA) I was already there when Etixx was launched and I feel particularly good with these products. They provide good support alongside my daily diet. In 2019, I became an Etixx ambassador. I am happy that, as an ambassador, I can share my experiences with other athletes so that they can prepare themselves optimally according to their personal goals.

Athletics -> West-Vlaamse Alliantie (WVA) and Olympic Brugge

"Dream Believe Achieve"

My favourite Etixx products

The Etixx Isotonic thirst-quencher is my fuel during long training sessions and competitions. I always use the Recovery Shake PRO LINE after strenuous training sessions, longer endurance training sessions and competitions. The Etixx Sport Hydro Tab is fantastic when training in hot conditions, because that is when I lose a lot of fluid. I also use the new health supplement Collagen Complex in course form for my weak tendons, which have a lot to contend with during my many training sessions and competitions.

Running, cycling and football

Triathlon

I am passionate about sports. Since I was little I admired professional athletes because I grew up in a family passionate about sports. When I started practicing triathlon, a sport that brought together three passions, I dreamed of being what I am now, and being able to participate in some Olympic Games. I feel fortunate to be part of the Etixx team, but above all, to maintain it over time and that they continue to trust me and my work. It is a luxury to work with a brand like this, which makes you feel valued and loved.
