Hi, I am a Ghent masters student studying Sports Management at UGent. As well as being a football trainer (SV Zulte-Waregem), activity leader and manager (Kazou and Route du Soleil) and a volunteer at the Ghent Red Cross, I am first and foremost a keen sportsman. After competitive swimming and football, I set my sights on extreme challenges: running 100km, Marathon des Sables, swimming the channel Dover-Calais, etc.
Number of hours’ training per week

My favourite Etixx products
During long training sessions, I mainly use the Isotonic thirst-quencher, since eating large amounts is not easy while running. After a training session, I use the Recovery Shake (kiwi/raspberry), and after an intensive/interval training/long training session (>2.5 hours) the Recovery Shake PRO LINE (I can recommend banana). During a long cycle, I use the Energy Marzipan Sport Bar as an extra, because it fills you up and marzipan is a secret guilty pleasure of mine.

Athletics (3000 m steeplechase and cross)
I am Jeroen D'hoedt and my main sport is athletics (middle distance). In addition, I also enjoy a huge number of other sports including cycling, tennis, mountain biking, etc. I do these sports mainly in the ‘off season’ or as an alternative due to injury. The nice thing is that Etixx has the right products for each of these sports in its range, ensuring optimum recovery between training sessions. I have also been able to take part in a few Etixx events such as the Ghent-Wevelgem Cyclo, a fantastic experience!Read more
