Thanks for taking a look at Rock the Ages.
Please know that this is a beta site. We are new at this and learning as we go. Please be patient with us and help us make this site as good as it can be. You will find comment sections throughout this website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know if you see things that we need to address. It’s okay to tell us the good stuff too. Thanks for coming. Please read on.
Rock the Ages (RTA) is a FREE web-based social network for a select audience, those 50 years old and older, who are ready to commit to maintaining their functional age at or below their chronological age for the rest of their long strong lives.
RTA is sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona and Tucson Medical Center. We have them to thank for this beautiful website…and the fact that you can buy RTA “stuff” at cost. Membership is free!
It’s all about fitness, responsible eating and connecting with others. RTA is not for the timid, but for those who are ready to work every day, forever, to make life better than you ever hoped…and you cannot do it in isolation. Prefer to be alone? Then RTA may not be for you.
Think of it as your new job. If you are ready to go to “work” every day (joyfully), excel at your work, and be accountable for your goals, then RTA is for you.
You simply MUST read this book, “Younger Next Year”, by Chris Crowley and Henry Lodge, M.D. Buy it today! The book inspired us and it will surely inspire you. If you don’t read it, we can almost promise that you won’t really “get it”. And when the rest of us are talking about it, you will be left out. So, there you go. Please click here and buy the book.
You will not find this to be a high-tech website. RTA is not about technology. The site will grow as we do. Our members will build the site with us, through participation. Speaking of participation, send us a great photo of you doing something active. We will add it to the site.
First…keep in mind what “Younger Next Year” tells us: See your doctor, perhaps for your yearly physical, to make sure that you’re in good enough condition to begin a serious six-day-a-week exercise regimen. Rule out the possibility that you have a condition that you’re not aware of that could become a serious threat to embarking on a new exercise program. Then let’s get started!
