I am passionate about sports. Since I was little I admired professional athletes because I grew up in a family passionate about sports. When I started practicing triathlon, a sport that brought together three passions, I dreamed of being what I am now, and being able to participate in some Olympic Games. I feel fortunate to be part of the Etixx team, but above all, to maintain it over time and that they continue to trust me and my work. It is a luxury to work with a brand like this, which makes you feel valued and loved.

My favourite Etixx products
The Etixx product that I use the most on a daily basis is undoubtedly the Recovery Shake, which helps me regain fatigue after each workout. Depending on how the training was and what I need to recover, I take the High Protein shake, which gives me a recovery bonus.
During exercise, every day in each of the swimming or cycling training sessions I do, I take Isotonic, which helps me hydrate myself and replace the electrolytes lost during exercise.
In competition, undoubtedly the Isotonic Energy Gel and Nutritional Energy Gel, depending on how hard it is in terms of the weather. If we expect a race with a lot of heat, I resort to Isotonic Energy Gel, which helps me hydrate myself and recover glucose levels faster.
My greatest sporting achievements
As the triathlon is not measured by time, I can only highlight my participation in the 10km route of Laredo, with a time of 29'04 ''. I have participated in some medium distance triathlon, such as the Zarautz triathlon and the 70.3 in Cascais, where I achieved a victory.

Ik ben een 400m loopster en Belgian Cheetah (4x400m) met enkele pechjaren en blessures achter de rug. De Etixx producten helpen tijdens de dagdagelijkse recuperaties en noodzakelijke supplementen voor een topsporter maar hielpen mij ook tijdens mijn revalidatie. Het gamma van Etixx is heel groot en omvat alles, voor elke mogelijke sportdiscipline. Als topatleet wordt je ook regelmatig gecontroleerd op doping dus is het heel aangenaam dat ik bij Etixx daaromtrent geen zorgen heb met hun 'Informed Sport' kwaliteitslabel.Lees meer
