Welcome to One Step Beyond Multisport

Welcome and thanks for stopping in. One Step Beyond is a multisport coaching company based in Cary, North Carolina. We provide coaching services to all levels of age-group athletes - from first year triathletes competing in their local sprint series, to the long-distance veteran looking to maximize his or her training time. We also host multiday training camps and one day Powerstroke triathlon swim clinics around the Southeast.

OSB has three coaches on staff - Marty Gaal, Brianne Gaal, and Melissa Hall. We also offer nutrition coaching through Jennifer Patzkowsky, RD/LDN. All of our coaches remain competitive as age-group triathletes and runners. You can read more about our coaches and their coaching philosophies on the About One Step Beyond page.

OSB's current athletes train between 5 to 20 hours per week depending on their experience and available time, and we use a mix of training methods and mental preparedness to maximize athlete performance. Essentially, plans for athletes focusing on shorter distance races include more high intensity work than athletes training for long distance races. Training loads and recovery periods are also adjusted for age and life stress related issues. We strongly believe in building a strong base of aerobic conditioning before moving into interval based sessions. We also believe in supplementary strength training to maintain or improve power, for general conditioning, and to prevent injuries.
