Martin Tobias - biohacking to upgrade the human mind and body

Episode 65: Live Long and Master Aging

Imagine being able to build as much muscle in one 12-minute workout as during four, hour-long sessions; or forgoing months of physical therapy for an injury treatment plan lasting just a few days.  Enter the world of biohacking and Bulletproof Labs in Santa Monica, California. 

The machines inside the futuristic fitness and healthcare center may look like something out of a science fiction film, but they were built, according to CEO Martin Tobias, around the practical concept of becoming as healthy as possible with minimal effort. Bulletproof Labs describes itself as "the world’s first human upgrade center for the mind and body.” it offers interventions such as cryotherapy, light therapy, atmospheric cell training, adaptive resistance technology and a gym-busting, computerized curling device called a Cheat Machine. 

In this LLAMA podcast interview with Peter Bowes, Martin explains the mission and technology behind Bulletproof Labs and his personal passion for hacking his way to a younger cellular age.
