Bulletproof is best known as the company that got people to start putting butter in your coffee, but they do a whole lot more than that. Dave Asprey, the man who founded Bulletproof and wrote The Bulletproof Diet, is one of the first online entrepreneurs; he sold the first item to ever be sold online, a t-shirt with the caffeine molecule on it. Dave then started applying his tech skills to the body, becoming one of the premiere biohackers in the health & wellness space. Bulletproof Labs is the next logical step in his grand biohacking experiment. Measurement, Mind, & Body The first thing you’ll do when you enter Bulletproof Labs is measurement. For people who really want to dig in, their nurses can take your blood to look at your hormones, inflammation, macronutrients, and telomere length, in addition to things like your weight, cell health, stage of ketosis, executive brain function, coordination, and more. After they have that data, they are able to make really comprehensive training decisions for that specific individual. This is because Bulletproof Lab’s goal isn’t fixing the outside of your body – they want to train you at a cellular level, because when your cells are healthy, everything else improves as a side effect. “At Bulletproof Labs, we really do believe that every person who walks through our doors is already perfect. They have the full capacity to do anything that they could ever want, and our job is simply stripping away limiting beliefs, stripping away inflammation, and giving them more access to their own capacity.” Resources: Learn more at bulletprooflabs.com Connect with Amanda on IG: @myfavworkout
