I am fanatical about everything I do. Once I start something, in sport, at university or anywhere else, I try to do my best. Last year was my first year as an Etixx ambassador and this fits in perfectly with this vision. This year, I have really noticed a big difference when training. I always had the right amount of energy with the Etixx products and the recovery support afterwards was better. Consequently, the quality of my training sessions clearly improved.

"Perfect practise makes perfect."
My favourite Etixx products
I use the Isotonic at almost every training session, especially during long endurance training sessions. This gives exactly the right amount of energy so that you don't get hunger pangs, but you also don’t take in too much sugar. The Recovery Shake PRO LINE is also essential. To be able to give the best of yourself, every day repeatedly, you have to recover properly from your training sessions, and the Recovery Shake PRO LINE is ideal for this. Lastly, I also always have Multimax in the house. As an athlete, you demand a lot of your body and the Multimax gives you a little boost to help you stay healthy.

Athletics (5000m and 10000m)
I am Simon Debognies, a professional distance runner with the Ministry of Defence and the Runners' Lab Athletics Team. I am currently specialising in the 5000 metres and the 10000 metres. In the longer term, I want to make the step to the marathon. The running bug has been with me since I was a child, and I caught it during my first school cross-country run in the park at the end of my street. Immediately afterwards, I joined the local athletics club and the starting shot was fired for a career as an athlete. Many worn-out running shoes later, I have Belgian and European medals in my pocket, as well as experience at international championships. Now, with a lot of passion and ambition, I am working towards my next goals.Read more
