My name is Nick Holslag, I am one of the partners of
Halo Headband products in San Diego, California.
I have been an athlete my whole life competing in a multitude of sports. Still today at age 59, I try to sweat every day either by mountain biking, trail running or weight lifting
At age 11, I began playing little league baseball, football and lacrosse. I played football in high school, lacrosse through college and then participated with many club teams.
I pursued a career as a personal trainer by opening and operating a private gym. I have been a Certified Personal Trainer and nutrition advisor for over 30 years. Through my career I have trained all types of athletes from beginners to pros in a variety of sports from pro baseball players to endurance athletes.
I have been a competitive mountain biker for over 34 years. I have competed mostly in cross country races and 24-hour races. I am also a committed trail runner and have competed in trail running races in many distances from 10K to ultra-marathons.
For seven years, I was the head varsity high school lacrosse coach for both the boys and girls teams.
Mountain bike racing was the inspiration that led my training partner and me to invent the Halo Headband. We were simply tired of getting burning sweat in our eyes during racing and training.
