Sport was not really my favourite hobby until my 5th son got cancer and running kept me going, literally and figuratively. From 0 to 5km and finally to full marathons (secretly my favourite distance). With perseverance, a good schedule and Etixx this is definitely possible! With support from Etixx, I can achieve these goals and my body gets the right nutrition at the right time.


My discipline

Running -> AV de Liemers


Number of hours’ training per week

4 - 6 hours

 

"Work hard,
everthing is possible."

My favourite Etixx products

  • I use Magnesium Instant Stick every day.
  • Multimax tablets autumn/winter and when training increases
  • Arginine 1000, 1.5 - 2 months before the marathon, to reduce tiredness after strenuous training sessions.
  • During long endurance runs, my favourite, Sport Gummies, great during long training sessions!
  • Carbo-Gy 3 hours before long endurance runs
  • Sport Hydro Tab, in the water bottle during training sessions in warm weather
  • Isotonic (in 500 ml water) 10 min before a long endurance run
  • Recovery Shake Chocolate (with unsweetened almond milk) after a long endurance run or interval training

Athletics

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.
