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.

Trail running, running, cycling, and triathlon

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.

CrossFit and mountain biking

I am very adventurous and don't quickly say “no” to a challenge. I love adrenaline and competition. I try to look after my body and mind as well as possible so that I can explore my limits. Thanks to the Etixx products, I can combine my work as a physiotherapist perfectly with my sport, in terms of preparation, having the right energy during exercise/training and for the recovery period afterwards.

Obstacle course racing, survival run and athletics

I am an enthusiastic girl who is bursting with energy. I am a student of Tourism & Recreation Management. I love adventurous challenges. I have only recently become an Etixx ambassador so my experience is still very limited, but I think the Etixx Ambassadors Team is fantastic!
