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!

"I may not be there yet,
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

CrossFit, weightlifting and bobsleigh

I am 23 years old and just graduated as a master in LO & Movement Sciences. I grew up in a gym and did competitive gymnastics until I was 18 years old. Then I made the switch to CrossFit and since a year also weightlifting. I live for sport, also academically and really any sport can fascinate me. I have big ambitions for the future and I am determined to achieve them one by one.

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.

Tennis

I am Sofia Costoulas, I was born in Genk and I am 16 years old. I started playing tennis when I was 4 years old and I still love it. I study human sciences and besides tennis I like to be creative. My biggest hobby is Pokémon, both Pokémon games and collecting Pokémon cards. I am a great animal lover, so if I didn't travel so much it would be Pairi Daiza at home ;-) My biggest dream is to take part in the Olympic Games and win a medal for Belgium.
