Sometimes, a single phrase can change your life.
That happened to me in 2014, on a trip to LA, when I was introduced to Dave Asprey and the term ‘biohacking’. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, biohacking is the idea of using the best tools that modern science has to offer to become the absolute strongest, healthiest, and most kick ass version of yourself.
Needless to say, Nick and I became instantly hooked by this concept — and by Dave himself — and we pretty much made a complete transition to the ‘Bulletproof’ way of life (the wellness philosophy that Dave created and espouses)... and we’ve literally never felt healthier and stronger.
If you’ve never heard of Dave Asprey, he’s the founder and CEO of Bulletproof (a high-performance coffee and food company), the creator of Bulletproof Coffee, host of the Webby award-winning podcast Bulletproof Radio (one of my all-time favorite podcasts), creator of the wildly popular documentary Moldy and a New York Times bestselling author.
From Silicon Valley entrepreneur to biohacking pioneer, this man uses himself as a human guinea pig to uncover groundbreaking techniques to give you control of your biology so that you can reach a whole new level of high performance, health and strength.
Not only is he one of the most well researched and respect people in the health industry, he is also incredibly humble and nice as (gluten-free) pie.
I am bursting with excitement for you guys to hear from him today.
Get ready for your mind to be blown.
