Craig Cooper: Your New Prime
“The message of Your New Prime is about how to get out of complacency in middle age and how to start thriving forward in life. So often we get to our 40s and 50s and we think that this is it and we can't change anything. However, my message is that it doesn't have to be like that. As you age, your focus should be about thriving, not complacency.” – Craig Cooper

Your New Prime By Craig Cooper
Feel great and perform at your best in the boardroom, weight room, bedroom, and beyond with this indispensable health and wellness guide: Your New Prime debunks current thinking about men’s health and shows how every man can continue to operate at his peak at any age.
Getting older may be inevitable, but in Your New Prime, serial entrepreneur and men’s health expert, Craig Cooper, shows men that they don’t have to accept the “natural” aging process.
Based on the latest scientific research and Cooper’s personal experience warding off diabetes, preventing cancer, and naturally increasing his own testosterone, Your New Prime is a comprehensive guide to the questions every man has as he ages. Tailored specifically for the “New Primers,” men forty years old and up, the book covers a wide range of vital topics—from improving sexual health and the impact of decreasing testosterone to proper nutrition, preventing memory loss, surviving the “mid-life crisis,” and achieving peak physical fitness.
Your New Prime provides an indispensable 30-day program designed to help you lose weight, boost energy, and transform eating habits. Divided into easy-to-navigate sections, the book also contains essential information about how to influence “epigenetic” traits and reverse the effects of aging, while quizzes, audits, charts, tables, and callouts help readers determine and address their specific personal needs.
Practical, honest, and vitally informative, Your New Prime details a lifelong strategy for maximum health—and will help any man perform his best, no matter what his age.

Power Quotes From The Show
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge
“As we age, our focus on life changes and we strive to stay in the game. Most of our injuries happen from silly accidents like tripping over a shoelace or losing our balance and falling. It's so important that we focus on the ability to put ourselves in a physical condition that allows us to participate in life at a certain level.” – Craig Cooper
“We're victims of the media telling us that our low energy, joint pain, and low libido is a natural part of aging that can be fixed with a pill or gel. Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way. There's a massive amount of lifestyle changes that you can make which can get you back on track again.” – Craig Cooper
“Anything that activates better heart health will also activate better sexual health. For nutrition in general, the Mediterranean diet is probably the best diet for that. Too much or too little of anything can be counterproductive. Specifically, the amount of protein, fats, carbohydrates can affect sexual health and testosterone.” – Craig Cooper
“The two main naturopathic prescriptions for natural testosterone production are sleep and weight loss. Every single study supports men getting more sleep; at least seven hours every night. If you're ten pounds overweight, you'll get a 10% increase in testosterone once you lose the weight.” – Craig Cooper
