Can you briefly introduce yourself? Tell us about your sports background and achievements.
I am Demi Chin, 17 years old, and I started kickboxing when I was 10. Currently, I train every day and also regularly teach and provide personal training to the new generation. Last year, I became the European champion at the Youth Fighting League. Recently, I participated in the World Kickboxing Championships in Germany, reaching the finals but unfortunately losing. The day after, I competed in Kick-Light, where I became the world champion.
How did you come into contact with our sports nutrition products?
I got introduced to House Of Nutrition through my father, Kevin Chin, and your sponsored fighter, Ilyasse Koujjit.
What are some of your favorite sports nutrition products from us and why?
What are some of the biggest challenges you have overcome in your sports career?
I really wanted to become a champion in the youth category, and I trained very hard, resulting in winning the European and world titles last year.
Can you tell us more about your daily routine, training, and nutrition schedule?
I currently train twice a day, doing cardio in the morning and kickboxing in the evening. I try to eat as healthy as possible, monitor my calorie intake because I want to stay around my competition weight, ensuring I don’t have to cut too much weight before my fights. This way, I’m at my strongest during competitions.
Do you have tips or favorite ways to use our supplements?
I usually make my protein shake with water, but when I’m at a good weight, I sometimes make it with milk or even tastier, with vanilla ice cream. It’s very unhealthy but delicious.
Besides nutrition, what other factors play a significant role in your success as an athlete?
Getting enough sleep, eating healthily and adequately, staying hydrated, not overtraining, and taking enough rest when needed. Additionally, I have regular conversations with my trainer, keeping me mentally sharp and focused on kickboxing.
How do you stay motivated to train and improve your performance?
Kickboxing is my passion, and I go to the gym with a lot of pleasure. Occasionally, I have a bad day, but then my trainer is always there to turn things around. I train at different gyms to work on my technique and strength and become better.
Can you tell us about a specific person who inspires you and why?
Someone who inspires me is my father. He never misses a training, always accompanies me, and takes me everywhere I need to go for training. I want to give my best for my father. I’m also inspired by Cheyenne Aldus, a multiple-time world champion in both K1 and Muay Thai. We have become friends, and she inspires me even more and helps me when I need it.
If you could switch places with someone from another sport for a day, who would it be and why?
I would like to switch with Shadé van Oorschot. She is in the Dutch national gymnastics team. She does exercises on the beam and the mat, and I think it looks super cool. Sometimes I wish I could do something like that too.
What are your future goals in the sport, and how do you think our products will continue to support you?
I can be brief about my goals; it’s to achieve even more titles in kickboxing. As I’m getting older and my body is changing, I want to continue using the supplements from House Of Nutrition to stay in top condition. I want to sincerely thank you for the sponsorship, and I will make sure you are proud of me.
