Speaker & Workshops
I’m a high-performance nutritionist and firmly convinced that nutrition is a performance determining factor. It’s my passion to guide athletes of all levels to become the best version of themselves and achieve their biggest goals.
Marije graduated as clinical dietician at the University of Ghent. She then further specialized in sports nutrition at the HAN in Nijmegen (NL), successfully completed an additional Advanced Sports Nutrition course at BARCA Innovation HUB Universitas (ES) and graduated from the Universidad Europea in Madrid with a Master of Science in Sports Nutrition. In 2020 she also followed a Chefs Training in Belgium. Turning nutritional guidelines into stunning plates and delicious dishes makes her smile. Ensuring evidence-based advice is very important that’s why Marije attends to several Sports Conferences annually. Not only the sports nutrition, but also the other fields of the Topsport like mental health and training methods is of her interest.
She has already five years of work experience and worked with several successful sports-medical companies such as Energy Lab, Football Club Brugge, REV-training Physio & Revalidation Center, Deceuninck-Quick-Step Cycling Team and Team Jumbo Visma Cycling.
Every person is unique and that’s why a personalized approach is key. With her own created nutrition application ‘MyNutritioncoach’ she ensures also a daily online support for the optimal nutrition strategy.
She is currently having a collaboration with UAE team ADQ Women Cycling and advices a lot of recreational and professional athletes in different sports (cycling, triathlon, swimming, tennis…).
When Marije is not working on her laptop, conducting consultations with athletes or preparing tasty healthy meals, she loves spending time in the mountains for hikes and bike rides. The competition life she left behind, but she is still a very passionate horse rider in her leisure time.
