What has been your credo in life that helps you overcome each challenge?
You need enthusiasm, to be passionate about ideas that you think are good, to follow things through to the end.
Can you share some of your training tips to perform better?
Set realistic aims in order to make progress in their sport. To dream of course, but to try to progress methodically.
What advantages or benefits has the COMPEX Wireless brought to your performance?
This device is great, it is very practical as the programmes and the pictograms are very clear, there’s no longer any need to read the instructions or of being afraid of getting lost, everything is contained in the device. The fact that you no longer get tangled up in any wires, that is amazing. The advantage is that you use it more quickly and easily.
What are your preferred programmes and when do you use them?
I have free rein from my trainer to use all the active recovery programmes, all the massage programmes … I regularly benefit from these by using it at rest times, often at the beginning of the evening. After sitting still in a car or on an aeroplane, it is great to drain the legs immediately or sometimes even during the journey, the Wireless is practical for this. This winter I have tested the Reinforcement and Strength programmes, “it contracts powerfully”, it is not a laughing matter and it requires you to be very controlled. Now the sessions are more specific, i.e. in the activity, but if the weather’s too bad to go out riding a bike, you put it on a “Strength programme” in order to store the gain.
What is your ultimate goal in your career?
It’s the track, the quest, the pursuit of an ideal which no matter what goes beyond the result itself. The focus is on the London Olympic Games in 2012. Then I will have to come up with a realistic new plan, even if I already have a dream in my head.
