I am a 26-year-old marathon runner with very big ambitions. Since the beginning of 2022, I have been living 100% as a professional athlete because of my contract with Topsport Defence. This gives me an excellent opportunity to get the most out of my sports career! I am also active as a coach within the Altius project of Runners' Lab Athletics Team and I enjoy delving into the world of stocks and real estate.

My favourite Etixx products
In the past I have used both Beta Alanine Slow Release and Iron 125 AA. These products have helped me get strong results every time. Despite having a sensitive stomach and intestines, these supplements have never hindered me.

Trail running and ultrarunning
Enjoying life is very important to me so family time, travelling, foodies but definitely running are my priorities. I can also combine my running story with the rest so that is definitely a plus.Lee mas
I am Axelle. I am 22 years old and a gymnast. The event I like and do best is floor exercise. I am also a student, studying biomedical laboratory technology. I mainly use the Etixx Health Supplements. This isn't used much by us yet because it isn't really an endurance sport, we mainly have to be fast and explosive. But if we ever have an energy dip, the Etixx products are an excellent help.Lee mas
I am an athlete who is not easily satisfied with a performance. I always want to do better than the previous race and keep improving my personal records. I like to learn quickly. Sometimes I try to imitate or learn a technique by watching other athletes. I am very motivated during training and I don't give up easily, but sometimes I dare to let my head hang down when things don't go as I had hoped. I am always open to humour and jokes on and off the slopes.Lee mas
