Peak 40: The New Science of Mid-Life Health for a Leaner, Stronger Body and a Sharper Mind (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Be more, don't do more. Train smart, eat better and balance your mindset and mood as you enter your mid-life.

This is the first book that is specifically designed to help you optimise your physical health, mental well-being, energy levels and intellectual acuity with a simple, science-based plan of action.

Life at 40 is very different from life in your 20s or 30s. This is the period when you begin to encounter roadblocks to peak wellness. In fact, it can be the most challenging decade of your life - when you reach peak tiredness, peak stress and when you realise that your body isn't what it used to be. That you can no longer eat, sleep, move or exercise as you used to.

Peak 40 will guide you through the myriad confusing lifestyle messages and help you understand:

How to restore flexibility

How to train with achy joints, knees, back, shoulders...

Whether a plant-based diet is right

How to maintain bone health

Whether to lift weights

Who should do HIIT (and who shouldn't)

The importance of glucose control in your diet

Whether living with anxiety and/or low mood is normal

How to reset expectations

But these aren't questions with binary answers. Dr Bubbs will help find the best combination for YOU and maximise your mental and physical performance. This book is the roadmap to the BEST YOU in your 40s.

Dr Marc Bubbs ND, MSc, CISSN, CSCS is a naturopathic doctor, performance nutrition lead for Canada Basketball and performance nutrition consultant for a portfolio of professional and Olympic athletes. Marc is the author of the best-selling book Peak: The New Science of Athletic Performance That is Revolutionizing Sports. Marc also hosts The Performance Nutrition Podcast, connecting listeners with world-leading experts in human performance and health, and regularly speaks at health, fitness and medical conferences across North America, the UK and Europe.
