I'm a 27yo sports fanatic and bioscience engineer. Whatever sport or task I'm performing, I will give it my all to be the best possible me. I'm really grateful that Etixx helps me to achieve this. I've grown up spending most of my free time on inline skates but my olympic dream has pushed me to switch asphalt for ice. Last winter I proudly represented Belgium at the Beijing Winter Olympics in speedskating.

My favourite Etixx products
I use the Isotonic Lemon almost every training session. It gives me the right amount of energy and water so I don't run out but also don't overload on sugar. The Natural Oat Bar is perfect for my long endurance trainings on the bike. It's not only super delicious, it also makes sure I don't get hungry towards the end.
My favourite healthy snack is the High Protein Bar. I'd call it a guilty pleasure but it's not even guilty, just a pleasure!

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
Sport has been a key part of my life since I was a child. I spent years searching for the sport that would give me the most satisfaction. From dance, to judo, even to gymnastics and fitness. But nothing could match the feeling that running still gives me after all these years, time after time. I have found my release, my passion. A way to forget everything for a while and to prove to myself that I can do more than I ever thought I could.Lee mas
