Thanks for stopping in. One Step Beyond is a multisport & triathlon coaching company based in Raleigh / Cary, North Carolina. We provide online coaching and personal training 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.

Led by Marty Gaal and joined by Brianne Gaal and Daniel Scagnelli, we have been competing since the 1980s (or 90s depending on when we were born) and have been coaching professionally since 2002.

About One Step Beyond
OSB is led by Coaches Marty Gaal, Brianne Gaal, and Daniel Scagnelli. All of our coaches remain competitive as age-group triathletes and runners.

OSB coaches are certified by accredited national bodies in a number of disciplines. Please read more about our coaches, their backgrounds, and coaching philosophies.

Our coaches 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. Periodized plans, training loads, and recovery periods are 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. All training is specific to each athlete based on that athlete's background, athletic experience, goals, and needs.

One Step Beyond is pleased to be a sponsor of the following organizations and races in 2021:
