Sjoukje van den Boom

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.


My disciplines

  • Running -> Atletiekvereniging de Keien (De Keien Athletics Club)
  • Cycling
  • Fitness


Number of hours’ training per week

6 hours 
 

"Never Give UP!
Keep Moving Forward!"

My favourite Etixx products

I use the Magnesium Instant Sticks almost every day for good recovery, along with the Recovery Shake PRO LINE. Collagen Complex is also an essential part of this. Since my injury, I use this either in my shake or in a glass of water to maintain my tendons with the right protein and vitamin C. For strenuous training, I also use the Arginine 1000 pills so that I get less tired.


My greatest sporting achievements 

Silver medal in the National Championship half marathon women’s masters (2018)


My personal records

  • 3000m: 00:10:35
  • 5km:00:18:45
  • 10km: 00:38:29

  • 21km: 01:29.45


My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021

I would love to run in another National Championship again. On the track or on the road for a half marathon. Unfortunately there is no date set yet.

Conocí el triatlón a través de mi padre que lo practicaba a nivel popular y siendo muy pequeño lo acompañaba a las carreras en las que participaba en Galicia.

CrossFit

I am Marieke, 28 years old and devoted to CrossFit. CrossFit has become increasingly popular among athletes in the last few years, which makes me very happy! It is a sport that constantly challenges me. I ask a lot of my body and, with Etixx’s support, I can continue to do so.
