Marieke Odink

I am Marieke, 28 years old and devoted to CrossFit. CrossFit has become increasingly popular among athletes in the last few years, which makes me very happy! It is a sport that constantly challenges me. I ask a lot of my body and, with Etixx’s support, I can continue to do so.


My discipline

CrossFit


Number of hours’ training per week

10 - 12 hours 

 

"No challenge, no change."

My favourite Etixx products

I use the Magnesium 100% Bisglycinate PRO LINE and Multimax from Etixx every day. When I’m training, I throw a Sport Hydro Tab in my water bottle to stay sufficiently hydrated. You don't just lose fluid while training, but also other important things such as salts and electrolytes. The Sport Hydro Tab provides this, and it makes the water taste better! After a strenuous training session, I take a High Protein Shake to top up my protein levels for repair and muscle growth.


My personal records

  • Deadlift: 153 kg
  • Clean and jerk: 85 kg
  • 500 meters on rowing machine: 00:01:41
  • Half marathon (21km): 01:52:00 


My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021

Since there is no CrossFit competition due to Covid and I am using videos, it is a challenge to find a challenge ;) For the year 2021, I am going to work on becoming a stronger version of myself, which will mean I have fewer injuries. So, back to basics and then building up from that. If anyone thinks of a fantastic goal, share it with me!

(Half) marathon, triathlon and yoga

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.

Bobsleigh

After a (youth) career in athletics, I switched to the Belgian bobsleigh team. After a few years, I retrained from brakewoman to pilot, while also completing my Masters in physiotherapy. In 2015, I was employed part-time by Sport Flanders as pilot and I am now about to start my 10th bobsleigh season. Qualifying for the Olympic Winter Games in 2018 was an amazing feeling and made me dream of doing more in 2022, in Beijing. I now practise my sport full time, while also being a proud Godmother to my nephew, the apple of my eye. I am very proud to be part of the Etixx ambassadors team, a super-talented and motivated group of athletes and sports enthusiasts. Being supported by such a professional company with good-quality, clean products gives me an extra push to achieve my dream of a top result in Beijing 2022!

Tennis

I am Sofia Costoulas, I was born in Genk and I am 16 years old. I started playing tennis when I was 4 years old and I still love it. I study human sciences and besides tennis I like to be creative. My biggest hobby is Pokémon, both Pokémon games and collecting Pokémon cards. I am a great animal lover, so if I didn't travel so much it would be Pairi Daiza at home ;-) My biggest dream is to take part in the Olympic Games and win a medal for Belgium.
