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.
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.
Founder at DevLifts
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.

Upon signing up, we’ll send you an in-depth questionnaire to get to know you, your goals, how you feel, your experience level with exercise and dieting, and more. We’ll then create a customized training plan tailored to your individual needs and check in with you each week to answer your questions and make sure you’re on track to achieve your goals.
You’ll also be invited to join our private Slack community, where you can ask us questions directly and share your progress and what you’re learning with other developers who are also on their fitness journey.

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.
