DELRAY BEACH, FL – May 23, 2017 – Seeking to improve his mind-muscle connection and maximize gains from training sessions, Timothy O’Donnell has incorporated the Halo Sport headset by Halo Neuroscience into his training regimen. As a seasoned competitor with a triathlon career spanning more than 13 years, he has seen appreciable gains in his speed and endurance with this specialized headset through which he can also listen to music while working out.
“I’m incredibly excited about the results I’ve seen since incorporating Halo Sport into my training program this year,” said O’Donnell. “I’ve seen an increase in my power output on the bike and I’ve been producing my fastest run splits in years. The Neuropriming sessions with Halo Sport have been a fantastic way to improve my efficiency in all three disciplines and when it comes to Ironmans, efficiency is king! Kona is won in the details of your preparation and I’m grateful to have Halo as a key part of mine.”
The headset incorporates an array of primers that electrically stimulate the brain’s motor cortex to decrease the amount of input required for neurons to fire. When paired with quality training, this has been demonstrated to result in increased strength, explosiveness, endurance, and muscle memory.
“Halo Neuroscience is proud to partner with Timothy as he prepares for Kona,” said Dan Chao, CEO and co-founder of Halo. “Having Halo Sport tried, tested, and incorporated into training by one of the world’s best triathletes is a huge honor.”
The Halo Sport headset is an integral part of O’Donnell’s quest for the 2017 IRONMAN World Championship in Kona. In 2016, O’Donnell produced his personal fastest time at the IRONMAN World Championship – 8:16:20. His prior finishes include 3rd in 2015, 5th in 2013, 6th in 2016, and 8th in 2012.
