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

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.

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!

Athletics (3000 m steeplechase and cross)

I am Jeroen D'hoedt and my main sport is athletics (middle distance). In addition, I also enjoy a huge number of other sports including cycling, tennis, mountain biking, etc. I do these sports mainly in the ‘off season’ or as an alternative due to injury. 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!
