Introducing… Christine de Jong
Introducing… sporty chick Christine de Jong – PR & Social Media Manager
My name is Christine and I’m 29 years young. I work at the Hunkemöller head office in Hilversum and live
in the happening city of Amsterdam.
I really love working out, although I love travelling and eating just as much. My perfect day is a combination
of all three. I prefer to work out as much as possible, and manage to do so around five times a week. I run four
times a week, and every week I do boot camp with my mentor Jill Meij from Mey Lifestyle Coaching.
Last Sunday, I ran the Amsterdam half marathon, and the Egmond half marathon in January is in the diary
once again. What goals have I set myself? Ha ha: a faster run time than 1 hour 56 minutes, and of course,
remembering to enjoy the beautiful surroundings – such as the beach and dunes in Egmond.
Working out makes me feel liberated; I can let go and recharge. Sometimes I’m not in the mood, but
when I get back in I feel great and re-energised.
I’ll be honest; I’m a bit vain and think it’s important to look good when you’re working out. Pink is my
favourite colour, which is the colour of my Nike trainers, and the rest of my outfit often (but not always)
has a pink theme. Below I’ve listed a few Hunkemöller must-haves, including some good sport bras
and great work-out tops and leggings.
My tip for the readers? When you’re finished working out, drink Vita Coco coconut water; it’s very re-
freshing and thirst-quenching. Vita Coco is a completely natural drink, rich in essential minerals that
are extremely hydrating. The coconut water is also low in calories, contains no fat and is absorbed quickly;
my ideal fitness drink!
