Provide mainly online plans, completely tailor-made, in line with your level, your time available to train, your race plans for the season.
Answer all your questions, however trivial they may sound. Insist on the importance of stress management and listening to oneself.
Work mainly with triathletes, road runners, trailers, cyclists, endurance swimmers, but also cater to specific needs (swimrun races).
I also work with 'unfit' people through the corporate programs I have designed.
Myself a very competitive triathlete (3x Ironman World Championship 2001, 2002, 2011) and ultra-endurance athlete in general (80km swim event, Ultra Trail 100 miles, etc.), I did my most spectacular sports feats while working full time as an international banker and a father of two. As such, I am one of the few coaches who understand well what it is to work under stress and still want to compete... without losing your job or destroying your marriage.
After years of informal coaching and hard training while being a top executive, I gave up the banking environment, did a Master's in Sport Management and started my own coaching business, beyond the line - endurance coaching and consulting.
I am a very structured person when it comes to planning (applying Joe Friel's principles) but also understand the imperatives of life. Still an athlete (qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in 2016), I am always looking for the edge and I am open to new trends, while remaining down-to-Earth.
I have a holistic approach to endurance sport, tackling stress management, nutrition, strength and conditioning, mental strength, on top of the usual aspects that you may expect.
I welcome everybody as long as they are self-motivated and respectful, believe in hard work and have a positive attitude.
beyond the line is about helping you reach the finish line, making sure you enjoy the process that leads you to that line and providing personal fulfilment that will stay with you after that.
