My favourite Etixx products
My favourite product is Etixx Recovery Shake PRO LINE. If I am at a tournament, whenever I win my match, I have to play again the next day. The Etixx Recovery Shake PRO LINE helps me to recover fast, so I start the next day in better shape. After strength training, I prefer to take the High Protein Shake to maintain and build my muscle mass. I highly recommend this.
Also, during the match, Etixx helps me to keep my energy levels up thanks to the Isotonic Drink Energy Gel and the Caffeine Sport Gummies. I think these gummies are super, because, thanks to the 80 mg of caffeine, they keep my concentration and alertness sharp after hours of training. I feel good with Etixx sports nutrition. I chose Etixx because it works. In addition, Etixx has a very broad range of products. As a sportswoman, this makes it very attractive, particularly for the variety after a long period of training and matches.

My tip for beginner tennis players
Top up enough, so use the Etixx Isotonic, Energy Gels and Sport Gummies in good time during training, before your energy reserves have depleted, that way you will be able to train for longer.

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.Read more
I am a 400 m runner and Belgian Cheetah (4x400m) with a few years of bad luck and injuries behind me. The Etixx products help during everyday recoveries and provide the necessary supplements for a top athlete, but also helped during my rehabilitation. The Etixx range is very broad and comprises everything, for every possible sports discipline. As a top athlete, you are also checked regularly for doping, so it’s great that. with Etixx, I don't have any concerns about that with their ‘Informed Sport’ quality label.Read more
