Why Athlete Story Club?

As an athlete, you know the power of practice and putting yourself out there. Other people recognize elite athletes for having these qualities. But when we are to use them in life after sports, doubt usually sets in. Why? Because we've been conditioned to think that we need to have something to "fall back on" to have a place in what other people call "the real world."

The Athlete Story Club is about the power of networking and leveraging the skills and experience we already have as world class athletes to develop and generate value from where we are. We have a different background than our non-athlete friends or family and it's okay to want to use that.

You don't have to start over from zero. You don't have to go back in line and try to fit in and catch up.

I'll be your host - and first great connection :)

I'm Anja Bolbjerg, founder of Athlete Story. I'm a 2x Olympic finalist in moguls skiing and former Freeride World Tour skier. I have been through retirement form sports not once, but twice, as you can read in my sports career resumé. 

I've felt how easy it is to lose momentum in life after sport trying to find your new mission, looking for where to "fit in" - even though I had it all planned out and with something to fall back on.  Fortunately I've also felt the validation and satisfaction of using my athletic background to help others.

Nobody wants to be that former athlete who's living in past glory, so we want to prove ourselves outside of our sport. 

At the same time we know we have something special to contribute with as former top level athletes.

My mission with ATHLETE STORY is to help you define that and use that, so you can tap into that as a competitive advantage.
How you can benefit from joining Athlete Story Club:
  • Environment of excellence. You will stay in that athletic environment and mindset of practicing and putting yourself out there on game day in our challenges and events
  • Awesome connections. You will get a direct connection with other former world class athletes who are either going through the same as you right now – or who have been there
  • World class team. You will get access to a panel of experts when it comes to positioning yourself in life after sports - professionally and personally
  • Adapted training facilities. You will get access to trainings created specifically for athletes who want to leverage their sports career for new exciting opportunities and thriving in life after sports
  • Support and entourage. You can keep momentum by having people who understand where you come from to spar with, get feedback from and bounce your ideas off.
Sounds great to be part of this exclusive community for former athletes?    - Of course it does, right ;)

What makes this community different from other athlete communities?

We focus on what you have to build on from your sports career. The general advice for athletes in transition is that we need to have something "to fall back on" as athletes. It can be a good idea – but not necessarily the best for you. 
As athletes we know that if you want to succeed in sports, that has to be your clear priority. So even if you did study while competing – it was probably not a priority then and you didn't develop a big passion for anything or it didn't give you any clarity on what you want to work with.

At Athlete Story we take a different approach. We prefer to focus on how you can bounce forward and how you can add value to others. Some people have an MBA - but you have your Athlete Story to set you apart. You can leverage and own that for life.

So don't lose too much momentum trying to fit in when you have a great chance of standing out!

As a member of the Athlete Story Club you will be in a framework where you can find guidance and support to help you find and develop your strengths and re-ignite your fierceness for a successful and exciting career after sport.

Anja's sports career

With 20 years on the international skiing scene, the keywords in Anja Bolbjerg’s skiing career are longevity, persistence and passion. She counts 2 Olympic finals, one World Cup victory and 25 top10 finishes in moguls skiing.

It was not all successes though. While leading the world cup one month before the Olympics as the only ever skier from a country with no mountains, she herniated 2 discs in the lower back.

This was the beginning of 6 years of struggle with extreme pain, one injury after the other eventually putting an end to her moguls skiing career.

Not feeling quite done, she later returned to skiing in a new discipline, qualifying for the prestigious Freeride World Tour reserved for the top 10 freeride skiers in the World - 12 years after being at her best in moguls skiing.

How Anja has leveraged her sports career

While Anja got a masters degree in engineering, it was her skill set, passion and experience in world-class sports that weighed in when finding her purpose in life after sports.

Anja has since  helped athletes and executive athletes keep the edge.

Through her injuries and comebacks, Anja developed a fascination for the power we all have to influence our body and prepare it specifically with the right training and conditioning. She used her athlete story both to set herself apart from other personal trainers and to inspire hope that her clients could do the same.

The first time I felt that another person could benefit from my unique skill set and experience was incredibly satisfying and exciting. Somehow I didn’t expect that. I thought I had to become an engineer!” says Anja.
