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.

The “Daily Duo’able” 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. Highly recommend this program for couples!

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!!

I am so proud because I’ve actually been reading the Just Duo It, Daily Duo’ables! I love how quick and simple the emails are, how there are daily themes and only one is work out related, how Ryan and Alex are nonjudgmental, and more related resources are available if you want to read further. It’s an excellent mix of unique material. Since it’s and short and sweet we both read and discuss daily!

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 & Colin

We love the Just Duo It program. Super excited for more date night recipes to meal prep! Loving the program! The Daily Duo’ables 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.

– Amanda & Chris

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!
