We make companies move
We are a group of expert companies who believe that human energy is the most vital element for creating real progress in organisations and society. We help our clients create workplaces where people can be better, feel better and talent can flourish.
Our vision is to move people, organisations, and society so they can thrive.
It is our ambition to improve the wellbeing and performance of all our customers. We believe that high well-being and high performance go hand in hand. So that people, teams and organisations can truly thrive.
We do this by energising them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
True wellbeing can only be achieved when it’s approached holistically. The wellbeing of an individual, team, organisation and society is defined by its physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. All our programmes and solutions are built around these 4 principles.
Energy Lab motivates people and companies to move more and live a healthier lifestyle. We create and implement sustainable and impactful wellbeing journeys, including inspirational sessions, activations, workshops, and life changing experiences for our customers. We offer testing and coaching services in our labs and via online applications.

Coaching has been an essential part of Energy Lab and at the root of our DNA for many years. Not only do we coach some of Belgium’s top athletes like sailing champion Emma Plasschaert and Sport Vlaanderen Baloise cycling talent Rune Herregodts, we also take pride in discovering new, young talent and coaching them towards their first steps as professional athletes and later on guiding and supporting them throughout their careers.
Justine Ghekiere: how riding the Virtual Baloise Tour lead to a career as a professional cyclist.
It all started two years ago when Justine decided to participate in the first edition of the Virtual Baloise Belgium Tour – a virtual event to replace the real Baloise Belgium Tour as the covid pandemic was in full swing back then. Her results were so astonishingly good that the Energy Lab coaches wanted to take a closer look at her cycling skills, so Justine came in for physical testing at Energy Lab Ghent. She blew our coaches away again with her performance during the physical bike test. The trained eye of coach Ward Van De Capelle spotted Justine’s talent right away and convinced her to try out for the Lotto Cycling Talent programme, on which she managed to get a spot. The programme allowed her to be coached by the Energy Lab coaches so she was able to explore her full potential and learn how to reach a professional level.
Fast forward to 2022… She is living her dream of being a professional cyclist as a member of the Plantur-Pura team. In the last two years, Justine has already proved to be a talented athlete with several successful performances in the greatest cycling competitions, including a 19th place in the World Championships.

Deloitte TOP Impact Journey
The ‘Deloitte TOP Program’ is a two-year program for starting talents at Deloitte Tax & Legal. The aim of this program is to train resilient and agile talents who will become the leaders of the future at Deloitte.
The icing on the cake for the ‘TOPpers’ is the impact journey in the Alps at the end of their traineeship. During this journey they will work on themes such as their Growth versus Fixed Mindset and look back on the past two years of the program. The mountains contribute to being able to slow down, step out of your bubble and completely disconnect from the daily grind. A wonderful journey where many great insights are gained that help them with their further career at Deloitte.
