Fernando Alarza Vicente
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.

I am primarily someone who doesn't give up easily and who sees everything positively. In addition to running for myself recreationally (60-100 km/week), I am also Charlotte Van Hese’s trainer. The aim is to make her a real top athlete without her losing the pleasure of running. The Etixx products are a fantastic asset for my (now much less) injury-prone body. I am very proud to be a part of this top team!Read more
Cycling, mountain biking and running
My name is Marcel from Delft, an avid cyclist, who has been cycling since 2005. I have a broad interest in cycling sports and regularly wearing a number on my shirt for a training race is good for the adrenaline. I like to share my passion for the sport and in doing so I try to inspire and motivate others. In 2019, I was asked to become an ambassador for Etixx NL, which I agreed to with very little hesitation because I was already very familiar with Etixx through the cycling world. I am proud of the support Etixx gives me to achieve my (sporting) goals and I am very happy use my experience with Etixx products to help other athletes.Read more
