Hi, I am a Ghent masters student studying Sports Management at UGent. As well as being a football trainer (SV Zulte-Waregem), activity leader and manager (Kazou and Route du Soleil) and a volunteer at the Ghent Red Cross, I am first and foremost a keen sportsman. After competitive swimming and football, I set my sights on extreme challenges: running 100km, Marathon des Sables, swimming the channel Dover-Calais, etc.

My favourite Etixx products
During long training sessions, I mainly use the Isotonic thirst-quencher, since eating large amounts is not easy while running. After a training session, I use the Recovery Shake (kiwi/raspberry), and after an intensive/interval training/long training session (>2.5 hours) the Recovery Shake PRO LINE (I can recommend banana). During a long cycle, I use the Energy Marzipan Sport Bar as an extra, because it fills you up and marzipan is a secret guilty pleasure of mine.

Running, mountain biking and cross duathlon
A positively-minded lover of life, who likes to challenge himself. In the last few years, I have discovered that with discipline and focus you can always get more out of yourself. The use of Etixx products also plays an important role in this. For me, this has become a vital part of my daily routine. Another fun fact, it's also thanks to Etixx that I met my girlfriend, who just like me, is a real go-getter - a perfect match!Lee mas
CrossFit and mountain biking
I am very adventurous and don't quickly say “no” to a challenge. I love adrenaline and competition. I try to look after my body and mind as well as possible so that I can explore my limits. Thanks to the Etixx products, I can combine my work as a physiotherapist perfectly with my sport, in terms of preparation, having the right energy during exercise/training and for the recovery period afterwards.Lee mas
