I am passionate about sports. Since I was little I admired professional athletes because I grew up in a family passionate about sports. When I started practicing triathlon, a sport that brought together three passions, I dreamed of being what I am now, and being able to participate in some Olympic Games. I feel fortunate to be part of the Etixx team, but above all, to maintain it over time and that they continue to trust me and my work. It is a luxury to work with a brand like this, which makes you feel valued and loved.

My favourite Etixx products
The Etixx product that I use the most on a daily basis is undoubtedly the Recovery Shake, which helps me regain fatigue after each workout. Depending on how the training was and what I need to recover, I take the High Protein shake, which gives me a recovery bonus.
During exercise, every day in each of the swimming or cycling training sessions I do, I take Isotonic, which helps me hydrate myself and replace the electrolytes lost during exercise.
In competition, undoubtedly the Isotonic Energy Gel and Nutritional Energy Gel, depending on how hard it is in terms of the weather. If we expect a race with a lot of heat, I resort to Isotonic Energy Gel, which helps me hydrate myself and recover glucose levels faster.
My greatest sporting achievements
As the triathlon is not measured by time, I can only highlight my participation in the 10km route of Laredo, with a time of 29'04 ''. I have participated in some medium distance triathlon, such as the Zarautz triathlon and the 70.3 in Cascais, where I achieved a victory.

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!Lee mas
I am Stijn Fincioen and I have been doing athletics for over 25 years now. In addition to being an athlete, I am also a ‘Trainer A’ [top-level trainer] for middle distance/long distance. I now pass on my experience and knowledge to my athletes at Olympic Brugge and the West-Vlaamse Alliantie (WVA) I was already there when Etixx was launched and I feel particularly good with these products. They provide good support alongside my daily diet. In 2019, I became an Etixx ambassador. I am happy that, as an ambassador, I can share my experiences with other athletes so that they can prepare themselves optimally according to their personal goals.Lee mas
