Sport has been a key part of my life since I was a child. I spent years searching for the sport that would give me the most satisfaction. From dance, to judo, even to gymnastics and fitness. But nothing could match the feeling that running still gives me after all these years, time after time. I have found my release, my passion. A way to forget everything for a while and to prove to myself that I can do more than I ever thought I could.
A few years ago, I chose not to keep my passion to myself, but to share it with as many people as possible. I really wanted to inspire people, to show people around me that where there’s a will, there’s a way. And that everyone can do it. That you don’t have to exercise for twenty hours a week to call yourself a sportsperson. That it is possible to make time for yourself after a busy day at work. And that afterwards, you will feel so much better.
And that’s also how I found Etixx. A sports nutrition brand with the same vision as me. Together with Etixx, I let those around me see that nutrition plays an important role in every type of sport and every type of sports enthusiast. Whether you swim, run or cycle. Whether you are a professional cyclist and cycle 25 hours a week or meet up regularly with friends from the cycling club on a Sunday morning. Nutrition, in combination with sport, is important for both recreational and professional athletes. I have been a sports coach and blogger by trade for a while now, providing my clients and followers with a daily dose of motivation. I love this!

My favourite Etixx products
Since I exercise almost every day, I often have difficulty supplementing my usual diet with the optimum levels of protein and carbohydrates to promote muscle repair. That is why there are two Etixx products at the top of my list: the Energy Sport Bar (Raspberry flavour, really delicious) which I eat before training and the Recovery Shake or Recovery Bar which I drink/eat after an intensive training session or competition. The new High Protein Bar (cookie & cream) is my all-time favourite snack.
In addition, as a runner, I have never been spared injuries. Running is also known as a sport that puts a lot of strain on the joints and muscles. That is why I’m a big fan of the “Collagen Complex” which contributes to collagen formation for cartilage and bones to function optimally.

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.Read more
