High-level athlete but also military reservist. In my everyday life I am sunny, in a jovial mood. But once on the track, the lioness in me takes over. I have often been given a quality which is the fact of having a steely mind.

Athletics: 5000m -> Pays de Fontainebleau athlétisme

My convinction for choosing Etixx as sports nutrition partner

I chose Etixx initially because I met a Belgian athlete who let me taste an Etixx Protein Bar after a session and I really liked it, it woke me up.
Secondly, I was also looking for a nutrition partner who would accompany me until Paris 2024, because I felt energy problems in my day and during my sports practice.

Knowing how much nutrition is an important factor in performance and for my health, I decided to turn to Etixx. They would come here to complete my preparation and solve this energy problem.


My favorite Etixx products

I tried the Natural Oat Sports Bar in Kenya after a session, I lacked energy. It immediately gave me my energy back!

I also just tried Magnesium 2000AA with red fruits, I really liked it, it's so fresh!

Running, Cycling and fitness

I am a happy Brabant girl, who swapped going to the pub for running. After I beat breast cancer in 2011, I made a change of direction. It seems it was a good decision as I’m still very passionate about it. Hopefully, there will be many more great times over the various distances; I actually enjoy all distances. I am now back on the road after an injury. I am very happy that Etixx has continued to believe in me, and with their products I am convinced that there are still many good things ahead in terms of running. I am very grateful for this wonderful support, it helps me to recover faster and be able to train harder so I can reach my goals.

Athletics (marathon)

Hello, I am Thomas De Bock, 31 years old and working as a doctoral student at the research group of sports management at UGent. In between working hours I run a lot of kilometres, mostly in preparation of a marathon. In the past, I have already tasted European and World Championships but I still have two major goals in my athletics career, namely to run under 2h10 at the marathon and qualifying for the Olympic marathon in 2024.

I am primarily someone who doesn't give up easily and who sees everything positively. In addition to running for myself recreationally (60-100 km/week), I am also Charlotte Van Hese’s trainer. The aim is to make her a real top athlete without her losing the pleasure of running. The Etixx products are a fantastic asset for my (now much less) injury-prone body. I am very proud to be a part of this top team!
