Evy Gruyaert

TV personality

Coach Evy Gruyaert started as the first coach in the Start 2 Run app. In 2006 she presented the programme Vlaanderen Sportland for Flemish television, in which she made a tour through the Flemish provinces and motivated everyone to (start) exercising. The TV programme led to a podcast and book that formed the basis for the Start 2 Run app in 2013.

Her motivating words “I am proud of you” have guided hundreds of thousands of Flemish and Dutch people to their first 5km or another sporting goal since the start of the app.

Running and Yoga are an ideal combination to keep your muscles flexible and strengthen them at the same time. To alternate effort and relaxation and to improve your posture. Discover Yoga through the Yoga met Evy app and do yoga where and when you want.

Sitting still is something Evy Gruyaert is not familiar with. She is the active face and voice of VIER with programmes such as Stukken van Mensen and de Leeuwenkuil, and together with Kevin De Geest she presented the daily Joyride programme on radio Nostalgie.

In 2020 Start 2 Run released a new edition of the Start 2 Run book together with Evy. The book guides you through your first 10 weeks towards 5 km and is also a useful guide afterwards to find the answers to known runner questions.
