From Broken to Freak Athlete

    Who am I?

    My name is Mathias and I am a Danish former professional cyclist who suffered from multiple crashes which prevented me from doing the most simple things pain-free. 

    I have always been fascinated by health and the human mind around learning new skills. I am studying educational science at Aarhus University in Denmark. 


    Why ATG?

    After suffering from a knee injury after a major crash, I came across ATG and Ben Patrick in my return to cycling journey. The break gave me time to think more deeply about what I wanted my life to look like, and what stuck with me was how narrow my frame of reference about perspectives on life was. My whole childhood, my life was routine: school, train, eat, and sleep. While this simple way of living is had its benefits, I was ready to grow.

    ATG exercises got me back to an injury-free body, but I didn't stop there. Now I am truly passionated about the training philosophy and I love to explore my weaknesses in the gym. Everyday is another step in my journey from broken to Freak Athlete.
