duo life


We help couples like you engineer a life you love with the love of your life. Transform your bodies and minds while strengthening your relationship. 

We are a husband-wife duo and engineers who left behind comfortable jobs to optimize happiness and health, together. 

After six years in the fitness and nutrition industry, our top question was, “How can I get my spouse to work out with me?” Too often, prioritizing health is a challenge for couples. So, through lots of research and self-experimentation, we have developed a program to help you “Duo Life.” 

Imagine a life where health is simply a natural by-product of doing what you love, together…

Duo Lifers

After years of post-collegiate sports laziness and a few added pounds on the scale, I “finally” came to Ryan and Alex and dragged my wife along. We started an in-home fitness and nutrition program together and got hooked. Over the years, I have lost 20 lbs of fat and gained it back in muscle. Now that we had our second baby, we are even more excited to raise our girls in a healthy household. As far as the Duo Life team, though? Yeah, they’ll help you get where you want or need to go.

One day I left the doctor knowing that if I didn’t change my habits I wasn’t going to be around to watch my children grow up. I found Ryan and Alex Duo Life on Facebook and I was surprised to find that there were real people on the other end eager to help. They have been mentors to us for years. I have lost 87 pounds, 84 inches, and went from a size 24 to a size 8. My husband joined me in my healthy living journey and the energy and confidence we have is amazing!!

– Sarah and Andrew

Ryan and Alex are two of the most adventurous people I know. Colin and I love all things Adventurous and that is what attracted us to this Duo! We believe that couples who train together and experience new things together just have a better relationship! We wanted a change in our training and nutrition and they helped us find the perfect plan to follow for our combined goals. We are now working out together more than ever, have seen great results, and are eager to try more programs!

– Allison and Colin

Ryan is such an awesome coach! He’s been there for me whenever I’ve needed him. He gives sound advice and is an amazing motivator. The best part is we have so much fun while we’re busy crushing our goals! There have been plenty of laughs and smiles shared throughout our journey together, and I’m glad to have his support. If you are looking for some extra advice or motivation, do not hesitate to reach out to him and hear what he has to say. It’ll definitely be worth your time.

I (Ally) lost 5 inches but I refuse to weigh myself. Part of my goal is to not stress about weight and focus on feeling and making healthy choices. I’ve gotten so many compliments on how toned I look. I am feeling better and better every day.  This challenge group has been the best thing to happen to me in 2018! I have fought my biggest enemy through this group… myself. All of your guys’ support and motivation made it a no brainer to hit play and drink my shakes. I <3 my workout family!

– Ally and Matt

My husband and I love the Duo Life Community! Within days we are already feeling the benefits of better nutrition and exercise. Ryan and Alex got us started on a yoga challenge which is perfect and we added in Shakeology, which tastes amazing!! We already decided to do another harder challenge when we finish this one. Thanks for helping us every step of the way and being quick to answer questions and provide support. If you need support in your duo, you’re in right place!

– Rachelle and Pete

Thank you!!!

We’re in such a routine now, it feels like something’s missing if we’re not working out in the mornings!

– Jennifer and Lance

I finally have a before and after transformation to be proud of and I’m not even done with the program! Down 8 inches and have no clue what I weigh. It doesn’t matter, I feel great!

– Michelle

The “Daily Duoable” emails in the Just Duo It program have been great.  We’ve enjoyed that they’re short and sweet and give you the right amount of motivation and awareness for the day ahead.

– Jenna and Erik

I am so proud because I’ve actually been reading the Just Duo It, daily duoables (that’s a win itself)! I love how quick and simple each message is, how there are different themes that are not always work out related (I have always had sleep issues so I found that one especially meaningful), how you guys are nonjudgmental, and there are more related resources available if you want to read on further. It’s a good mix of material and short ‘n sweet so we both read and discuss the duoables often!

Ellie and Jason

Super excited for more recipes to meal prep! Loving the program! The Daily Duoables are helping us focus on smaller goals and challenges. I definitely look forward to my daily email to guide my day. Chris and I spend a lot of time apart and we always enjoy reviewing together on our nightly FaceTime date. Great program (Just Duo It) so far ?

- Amanda and Chris

Your latest Life Letter really struck a chord and really got me thinking on how I need to make a healthy lifestyle a priority. A month or so ago, I got an email from my oldest brother who is 52 saying that he has throat cancer. Although I can’t do much about the cancer thing, it got me thinking that I can do something about my life and health. Just wanted to say thanks for being there for me as my health coaches. You and Alex are doing more for me than you realize. Keep doing what you do.
