Dr. Daniel Chao, CEO of Halo Neuroscience and creator of Halo Sport, dedicated his whole life to understanding the brain and its function. Specifically, how electrical stimulation can help the brain more rapidly improve physical performance, cognitive function, and overall happiness.


Halo Sport is the first-ever brain stimulator used to accelerate movement-based learning. In other words, it speeds up the development of skill, strength, and endurance, depending on the type of training that you pair with it.


Halo Sport works by applying non-invasive, mild electrical current to the motor cortex (part of the brain responsible for movement), allowing your brain to build stronger connections and learn movement faster. For example: You can wear Halo Sport for 20 minutes before your training session, which gives you one hour of what neuroscientists call “hyperlearning” or “hyperplasticity”. Training with it accelerates gains across skill, strength, and endurance.


In this episode, we talk to Dr. Chao about how the brain is wired for movement, how to increase mastery of movements by 50%, incorporating meditation and visualization into performance that matters, how to increase fine motor skills and advanced movements through brain stimulation, how to maximize performance in CrossFit with 20 minutes of use in your warm up, and more.
