After a (youth) career in athletics, I switched to the Belgian bobsleigh team. After a few years, I retrained from brakewoman to pilot, while also completing my Masters in physiotherapy. In 2015, I was employed part-time by Sport Flanders as pilot and I am now about to start my 10th bobsleigh season. Qualifying for the Olympic Winter Games in 2018 was an amazing feeling and made me dream of doing more in 2022, in Beijing. I now practise my sport full time, while also being a proud Godmother to my nephew, the apple of my eye. I am very proud to be part of the Etixx ambassadors team, a super-talented and motivated group of athletes and sports enthusiasts. Being supported by such a professional company with good-quality, clean products gives me an extra push to achieve my dream of a top result in Beijing 2022!

but I'm closer than I was yesterday"

My favourite Etixx products

As an explosive athlete, I mainly use the power and performance range. To gain muscle mass, I use HMB every day and do regular cycles of creatine. In addition, I use the Multimax, Magnesium 100% Bisglycinate PRO LINE and Collagen Complex every day.

During my training, I use the Isotonic (forest fruits or lemon), Energy Marzipan Sport Bar or Energy Nougat Sport Bar so that I have enough energy to be able to give 100% in everything I do. After strength training sessions, I use the High Protein Shake or High Protein Bar and recently also the new Recovery Shake PRO LINE. For competitions, I also use the Caffeine Energy Shots or Caffeine Sport Gummies to boost my concentration

Atletismo - Salto con pértiga

Soy Fleur, 23 años, saltadora de pértiga y estudiante de fisioterapia. Practico el atletismo desde los 6 años. A los 15 me especialicé en salto con pértiga. El deporte es mi afición y mi pasión. Soy un animal competitivo, me encanta superar mis límites físicos y me mueve alcanzar mis metas. Además de en la pista de atletismo, también puedes encontrarme entre mis libros de texto, sobre la bicicleta de carreras o en una acogedora cafetería. Los productos Etixx me ayudan a rendir de forma óptima durante los ajetreados periodos de entrenamiento y competición y, de este modo, seguir persiguiendo mis objetivos.

Distance running, cycling and padel

I am Jeroen D'hoedt and I like to practice a number of sports including running, cycling, padel, tennis, mountain biking, etc. The nice thing is that Etixx has the right products for each of these sports in its range, ensuring optimum recovery between training sessions. I have also been able to take part in a few Etixx events such as the Ghent-Wevelgem Cyclo, a fantastic experience!
