It seems every beauty and health magazine is telling you 30 is the new 20 or 40 is the new 30, but fitness magazines are acting like 40 is the new 80. (Stole this from Jim Wendler.)
But it’s right! People constantly are looking for reasons (read as excuses) to be lazy. They think they hit this magic number and society says it’s time to hang up the hard training for yoga and aquatic classes.
Granted you’re not the young, bulletproof self from your early 20s. Drinking til 5am then getting up and working construction all day before 10 rounds or hard training at night, but honestly… who wants to do that anymore?!
But!!!! You can train as hard as you can recover from. So no all-nighters and 10 rounds of hard rolling or bag work, but you can definitely still train BJJ and Muay Thai 2-3 nights a week.
But I want to spend time with my family?
We get that too, but let’s be honest. You’re a way better person when you blow off the steam from work, daily stresses, and traffic. You know, that annoying Subaru in the left lane going 5 under? Yeah. That would get Mother Teresa to cuss… anyways… Training makes you a better parent, significant other, and human. Whether you’re 8 or 80.
And last but not least, one of our members, Bonnie, fought and won her first Muay Thai fight AT 62 YEARS OLD!!!!!!! She’s competing in her first BJJ tournament this month! (May 25th 2019).
So having rugrats, working full time, and a husband or wife is at home, doesn’t mean you’re dead. It means you have so much to live for! Stop using them as excuses and start using them as reasons to be the best version of yourself. Be a part of the fastest growing and best community in Asheville!

Hear from our members:
Just past the VA Hospital, this place is welcoming to people of all walks of life.nnThe environment is clean, safe, and nuturing. The staff are committed to their students, their craft, and each other.nnThe studio is surprisingly mobility friendly, although people in motorized wheelchairs would find it difficult to navigate beyond the front area.nnI am most impressed by the genuine and friendly connection the staff has with everyone, including each other.nnIt is refreshing to see a complete lack.
At first I was taken back by all of the text messages. I know now my coach even sent me a video. But a thought in the back of my mind told me only people that care about you contact you a lot. Only a person that cares about your health would send a video. So I Google the address and went without a text. My coach greated me with a smile. The feeling went you walk in the door is welcoming. You just want to come in and stay a while. I scheduled my orientation. When I arrived for my orientation I sa.
I stumbled into Rogue Combat Club and had some previous experience, but the sole focus on nogi has significantly leveled up my grappling game. Great instruction with a variety of styles and tough rolls. Plus, they make a bomb recovery protein shake that rotates monthly. What else could you want?.
Initially, I went in with some anxiety. I'm not in great shape, nor do I have any experience with martial arts. However, everyone at Rogue, instructors and students alike, have all been incredibly friendly and welcoming.nnThe atmosphere is lively and fun, and the gym is clean and looks great.nnI'm very happy with becoming a member at Rogue..
I have only been a member at Rogue for about 2 weeks and I have to say it has already been such a great experience. Everyone I've met has been super supportive, patient and kind. I feel more confident and am buzzing with endorphins when I leave. 10/10 recommend coming in and seeing for yourself what this gym can do for you!.
