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.

of your comfort zone."

My favourite Etixx products

Magnesium 100% Bisglycinate PRO LINE is a supplement that I always have in the house, since I am naturally susceptible to cramps. A nightmare for any athlete. I keep this under control with Magnesium and can always push myself to the extreme.

I use Carbo-Gy before and during competitions or training sessions in combination with an isotonic drink (Isotonic) to constantly replenish the necessary carbohydrates.

Recovery Shake PRO LINE is vital in my opinion, optimum recovery is essential when you exercise almost every day.


My greatest sporting achievements 

UTMB and Diagonale des Fous are both exceptional 100-mile trail races over an extremely arduous route.

Furthermore, in addition to a heap of other ultra-trail races, I am also very happy with the number of mountain peaks I have conquered independently in mountaineering, such as Dom de Mischabel and the better-known Mont Blanc.

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.

Table tennis

I am a motivated person who likes to keep busy, you can usually find me with a full diary and a smile on my face. I became an ambassador for Etixx this year, but I have been using the products for much longer. I often suffer from energy dips and I have found the solution to this in Etixx’s products, including the Sport Gummies and the Energy Sport Bars. But, looking forward to the Recovery products afterwards can also increase motivation during training. The Etixx ambassadors team is a great group and I am proud to be a part of it!
