Refactor Your Body


Sitting, pizza, deadlines, caffeine, hot fixes, burgers, and office politics is a seriously destructive pattern to your current and long term health.

But you can start fighting back today.
That’s where we come in.

The Why


Why DevLifts exists

Quote Icon

We exist because I know what it’s like to be a developer and start accepting aches & pains, depression, anxiety, bad sleep, weight gain, and a host of other health problems as reality. It wasn’t until I started changing my lifestyle that I discovered these problems didn’t have to be my reality. We exist because I want other developers to come to the same realization. We exist because we want to help them learn how to cultivate a healthy lifestyle.

Fight Back


Do any of these apply to you?

We understand the health and fitness problems associated with the lifestyle of developers. Everything we do — from creating training and nutrition to writing content — will always be done in service to helping you solve these problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not interested in becoming a bodybuilder. Is DevLifts for me?

Yes! We will have plans suited for all sorts of goals and lifestyles. You set your goals. We're here to provide you with resources and motivation to achieve them.

Are you qualified to be giving fitness advice?

Firstly, Thad is a certified personal trainer, and J.C. is currently an ACE personal training candidate. Thad will be making and signing off on the plans until J.C. finishes his certification.

Secondly, J.C. is a developer himself who has experienced firsthand some of the health problems brought on by the average developer lifestyle. Not only will this influence all the training and recommendations given by DevLifts, but it also means there’s a great deal of empathy he will be able to have for everyone.

How is DevLifts different from existing fitness sites?

Firstly, we're specialized. To our knowledge, DevLifts is the only developer-centric fitness community on the Internet. Everything we do revolves around helping you, the developer, achieve a healthier lifestyle. This means you benefit from a highly targeted approach and an encouraging, like-minded community to keep you going.

Secondly, no fluff. We're not here to waste your time or play games with you — we're here to help you feel better, look better, and live longer. And all our content and programming will be published to that end.

How is DevLifts different from hiring a personal trainer?

Only in the ways it needs to be.

Less expensive. Thad works as a traditional private trainer for his day job, and his lowest-paying client still racks up a $360/month bill.

No chaperones. We get that it can be uncomfortable having someone look over your shoulder and chit-chatting while you’re trying to work out. That’s another beauty of DevLifts: all the expertise of a certified personal trainer — without the trainer.

Community. Benefit from a community of like-minded developers who are on this journey with you. We haven’t met any personal trainers with membership forums or Slack channels.
