The Meaning Behind 'Peak State'

Peak State of Mind

The idea for Peak State originated when our Founder, Danny, was spending time in the mountains working on a trail crew, working with his hands, and living a life that felt like his own sort of "peak state" - an optimal mental and physical state of being. Starting the business in Colorado (also debatably the "Peak State", as CO is home to more 14,000 ft peaks than any other state), was ideal for the concept, due to the amount of like minded folks taking an interest in nature and the outdoors. Thirdly, as a wellness brand, each and every product is formulated to help you feel optimal, mentally and physically, or in other words, to help you feel good and in your peak state. 

But regardless of the nature inspired origin, mountainous headquarters, or feel good ingredients, we didn't stop there. We asked a range of people to answer the question, “What is Your Peak State?” The answer to this question meant entirely different things to each person, and here’s what we found:

My peak state is…

4. Removing the Ego (and Pushing Yourself)

These are just a few stories about what a Peak State can mean, and it is different for everyone. Each and every person can find that state of being where they are passionate about life, are reaching their optimal potential, and for some, it's the stillness of a morning cup of coffee. What's your peak state?
