“Along my ongoing journey from triathlon newbie to endurance junkie, Olivier is the crucial compass which gives me the assurance I’m training at the right intensity and volume to reach safely my goals.”

“The input, support and experience from Olivier made a big difference and gave me a lot of motivation to keep pushing myself beyond the line!”

“Olivier’s programs are “home-made” so they are not only tailored to my strengths and weaknesses but they are also refined over time integrating my feedbacks and Olivier’s observations.”

“I contacted Olivier to get advice and I got back much more than expected, the professional help, support, guidance and motivation that I got from him has been phenomenal!” 

“I highly recommend Olivier’s coaching program if you have a goal you are wanting to achieve. Thanks Olivier and may the relationship, coaching and results continue !”

French-born Olivier Baillet spent most of his 20 years of his banking career in international roles. All these years, he also had a ‘parallel life’ as a competitive distance athlete. After leaving his banking career in late 2013, Olivier completed a specialisation module in Sport Management part of an Executive MBA program and then launched Beyond The Line, with the idea of providing the level of coaching and consulting services that he had searched for during his athletic and professional careers but never found.

Olivier reached his success in endurance sports through trials and errors, being self-coached all his life, constantly exploring new ways and learning a lot in the process. He now shares his expertise gained along the years.

Nostalgia... 3 years ago I was finishing my 4th Ironman World Championship over a span of 17 years. The world is in shambles and triathletes mourn the cancelation of Kona 2020. It will come back. I will come back. One day...

Sometimes, it’s not about the climb, it’s about the reward... blueberry and raspberry tarts at the top of Granon pass.

Today is not about climbing a pass, even if we did climb one. Riding the ‘boucles’ (loops) set in the Hautes Alpes are the most enjoyable days on the saddle we can have. The views are stunning, and we end up climbing over 2,000m (almost) without noticing. #beyondthelinecoaching #beyondthelinevirtualrides #serrechevaliervallee #iamspecialized #cuoreofswiss_asia
A well deserved coffee at the top of Lautaret: Personal Best today! These months riding indoor on Zwift are paying big time... and give me hunger for more PB chase :-) #beyondthelinecoaching #beyondthelinevirtualrides #Iamspecialized#cuoreofswiss_asia
I now pre-record my Mental Strength Training sessions for indoor rides and still provide them for free! #beyondthelinecoaching #mentalstrengthtraining
