Surfing combines timing, balance and endurance into something that we can call the “art of motion’.
O.P.O vision and its applications(performance and recovery) help us getting closer to the art of motion. When you’ll try it, you’ll understand the subtleties hidden into O.P.O expertise and the values the team is carrying.


I got the opportunity to meet Loïc Aumont in San Francisco a couple of years ago and was introduced to his new project at the time. O.P.O Consulting had not been created then, but I saw the potential first-hand as I was working on a start up project myself. Loïc and I started talking a lot and I began to apply some of his expertise to improve my surfing skills.

400m hurdles U20 France Vice-Champion

That's when I had the opportunity to take part in a mental preparation course, with other athletes, supervised by Loïc Aumont. He has guided us towards a fine line of performance psychology. At the beginning, I was skeptical of his method, which was out of line, far from our habits, although intriguing and stimulating. During this course, we worked to identify the limits that deprive us of expressing our full potential.

Using the premises of the O.P.O. method, I learned to be more lucid during training and competition. I learned the importance of a fine approach to mental preparation and how to implement it in my daily life.


I started track and field at the age of 17, after practicing several different and complementary sports. I then discovered the 400m hurdles, which corresponded well to my profile as an athlete in that I wasn't the fastest but showed a rare resistance to suffering and a courageous mentality in the effort.

This discipline requires intensive and hard training, especially to develop the anaerobic lactic acid pathway. The mind also plays an important role in the training sequence and in questioning oneself once the results have been achieved. In 2019, I signed my personal best in 53''32 in U20.

For a long time, I believed that all I had to do was train hard and focus on the stopwatch to perform. However, my body began to show the limits of such an approach.

At the beginning, I was skeptical of his method, which was out of line, far from our habits, although intriguing and stimulating. During this course, we worked to identify the limits that deprive us of expressing our full potential.

This approach paid off the following year when I finished 4th in the final of the French Championships (senior category) over 400m hurdles, beating my PB in the semi-final (52''43) and then in the final (52''41). This year, in 2020, I became the U20 France Vice-Champion, behind Wilfred Happio, the 2019 U20 European Champion.

Using the premises of the O.P.O. method, I learned to be more lucid during training and competition. I learned the importance of a fine approach to mental preparation and how to implement it in my daily life.

Finally, I understood that listening to oneself is an integral part of performance, and is as important as physical preparation, recovery, muscle strengthening or technical work.

I would like to thank my trainers and Loïc for the work they have done together to help me go beyond my limits.

Sprinter (100m, 200m)

I toasted the stages by winning the French Junior Indoor Championships during my first year. I was then selected in the French Junior team, but I seriously injured my quadriceps. My body wasn't ready to support the level of demands that the high level requires.

It was during this reconstruction phase that I was able to experience the philosophy and methodology put in place by Loïc Aumont.


My name is Assadillah Karani, I landed on the track more than 6 years ago, after spending a youth playing soccer. My qualities of speed naturally oriented me towards sprinting (100m and 200m).

I toasted the stages by winning the French Junior Indoor Championships during my first year. I was then selected in the French Junior team, but I seriously injured my quadriceps. My body wasn't ready to support the level of demands that the high level requires.

It was during this reconstruction phase that I was able to experience the philosophy and methodology put in place by Loïc Aumont.

At that time, we created a working group with my coach Benoit Constant, Loïc, my physiotherapist, and other athletes. I gradually developed as an athlete but also as a man. I learned to apprehend my thoughts, my feelings on the track, and not to play another character than my own. This in-depth work allowed me to abandon the destructive doubts that surrounded me and hindered my fulfillment.

Loïc's role in this change was decisive. I have integrated the premises of the O.P.O. method and I now think that it is its key concepts and their practical applications that make the O.P.O. movement specific. 

Some of them have particularly marked me:

The first concept, "The Mobility Triangle", still allows me to progress today thanks to a complete vision of performance. Applicable on the track and in professional life, it helps to easily identify blockages and to act on them before they unbalance the general harmony.

The third concept, "The patient actor of his own path" made me aware of the role I had in creating my own path and making my own way. Through my thoughts and actions, I can choose my destination and set up a path to get there.

During these 6 years of work, we have done group workshops, mental preparation courses, and long training sessions. We have experimented many tools that now allow me to coach groups of young athletes, while remaining focused on my olympic goal with the Comoros. 

I can't wait to discover the next chapters that the O.P.O. method has in store for me. Thank you and see you soon on the track.

At that time, I didn't know that this would lead to the creation of a movement of such magnitude as O.P.O. What I can say after years of high level competition is that despite our late meeting, the application of the O.P.O. concepts and method made me evolve in a very short time, and my only regret today is that I was not able to take full advantage of such expertise to exploit my full potential during my career.


I met Mr. Aumont in 2016 when I was at the end of the race for the Olympic qualification for Rio. The work started at his practice during an osteopathy session where we exchanged on my career, my expectations and objectives, before proceeding to a complete and fine body rebalancing.


Then he went several times to my training place to meet my trainer and attend sessions.


We continued the work during the Paris Tournament, where Loïc followed us throughout the event to get a glimpse of the conditions, the organization and the constraints to which we are subjected.


Three days of training followed the competition with twice-daily training sessions gathering the best athletes in the world.


Loïc's relevant and singular analysis on the physical, mental and behavioural level allowed us to set up pre-session objectives and then debrief them after the sessions, while also resolving specific concerns on the physical level. Although he is not a judoka, his advice had an impact on my strategy.


His work helps to link body and mind, to release blockages, to make the athlete aware of his real potential, to increase it and thus increase his performance.

110-meter hurdles

O.P.O Consulting has been a real discovery in my young high-performance career.
In my first career, I was a professional dancer without any medical staff. Now, I’m a sprinter specialized in 110 meter hurdles. Nevertheless, when I started to perform, significant hip blocking slowed my progression. 110-meter hurdles are the hardest discipline in track and field. In fact the demands are so important that we cannot accept additional constraints. That is the reason why, my early sprinting career has been plagued by injuries, in particular on my hamstrings. My body was totally imbalanced and fragile.

When I started to work with O.P.O Consulting, especially with Mr Aumont on The Performance Optimization Formula, a new sensation of harmony and a freedom of mobility appeared in my body. It was a long and deep process to help my body to expression its potential.

During all these osteopathy sessions, Loïc Aumont proposed an additional expertise on the field, during training, internships or discussions with my coaches. They shared with us new exercices, psychological performance follow-up, etc… All is done to mix performance and prevention. The objective seems to put your body in balance and your mental health to be free to express your own potential.

After 2 years with him, results are here. I have won my first national title. My personal best improves every season and I has integrated the TOP 15 in France at 22 years old. So I can confirm that O.P.O Consulting has improved my performance and prevented injuries better than all machines that I’ve ever tried before.

With O.P.O Consulting, I have learned to push my limite beyond all I thought possible.
