About this project
Your personal gym for fitness at home, office, or on the go. The DoubleFlex Black is powered by our patented SpiraFlex resistance technology used to keep NASA astronauts in shape on the International Space Station.
World's only exercise device that applies resistance to both sides of muscle groups in one motion, building a balanced body in less time.
Combining strength with movement, without weight or momentum, our portable gym is a new approach to functional fitness.
The DoubleFlex Black is the "professional grade" second generation, featuring more resistance, additional cable extension and folds up to fit in your pocket or carry bag. Engineered for durability and long life.
Make the commitment to fit fitness into your lifestyle!
A SMARTER WAY TO GET FIT
What makes the DoubleFlex Black different than other fitness products like free-weights and resistance bands?
Free-weights work great but are not portable, and trying to control momentum can cause joint pain. Resistance bands produce progressive resistance (like rubber bands), which means the muscle is only fully activated at the end of the movement.
SpiraFlex resistance is smooth and linear like free-weights, without the weight or momentum. SpiraFlex FlexPacks rated at 5 and 10 lbs. snap onto the DoubleFlex Black, providing up to 20 lbs. of smooth resistance (feels like more, as you can't use momentum like weights), yet the entire unit weighs less than 2 lbs.
The DoubleFlex Black is the only device that provides abduction and adduction resistance during a single exercise movement, building a balanced body more efficiently. Also, since the DoubleFlex does not use gravity, a much wider range of functional exercises is possible in all planes of movement.
Whether you are an athlete or just beginning to exercise, the DoubleFlex Black can help you achieve and maintain your fitness goals wherever you are. No excuses!
The DoubleFlex Black provides SpiraFlex resistance to opposite sides of muscle groups during each DOUBLEFLEX movement, in all planes of motion, building a balanced body in less time.
Fitness Director Nick Bolton has created a range of unique DoubleFlex workout programs for all fitness levels that maximize the patented features of this revolutionary new product: from 5-minute targeted workout snacks to full-body 20-minute HIIT programs.
Laura Jones has created yoga and Pilates programs that add strength and flexibility to classic routines.
All programs are included on the DVD and available online for streaming.
Inventor Paul Francis was in the coffee shop below his office reading an article about NASA searching for a solution to prevent astronauts from losing bone density and muscle mass during long duration space flights. Francis believed his SpiraFlex resistive technology could be the answer. He contacted the Chief Medical Officer at NASA and was invited to give a presentation at Johnson Space Center, which led to his SpiraFlex team developing the first Resistive Exercise Device (iRED) for use in space. So far, over 50 crewmembers on the International Space Station have kept in shape using his patented SpiraFlex technology.
Paul Francis left the architectural profession to become an inventor (over 20 US and 32 foreign patents so far), launching products in the hardware, personal care and fitness industries. He has also licensed SpiraFlex resistance technology to Nautilus Inc. to power their top of the line home gym, the Bowflex Revolution.
Francis founded OYO Fitness to integrate SpiraFlex into On Your Own fitness solutions that fit into your fast paced lifestyle. Can't make it to the gym? No problem.
Dr. Ryan Harrison first discovered our original first generation silver DoubleFlex when searching online for a new fitness product to add to his workout routine. He was intrigued with the technology and design. After using the device for several months, he realized that it would be a great fit for the wellness program he directs at Hillcrest, which now provides DoubleFlex group exercise classes to its members 4 days a week.
Fitness Director Nick Bolton developed DoubleFlex workout and nutrition programs for all fitness levels, which were used in his highly successful 10-Week DoubleFlex Challenge Program. Using the original first generation DoubleFlex 3 to 5 times per week and following nutrition guidelines, 15 participants lost an average of 17 pounds and 19 inches in just 10 weeks.
One of the advantages of the DoubleFlex is that it feels like free-weight or cable machine resistance, yet weighs less than 2 pounds. You can skip the crowded and expensive health club, and enjoy a total body workout at your convenience.
OYO Fitness creates innovative fitness solutions to enable you to get fit On Your Own — helping you meet and beat life’s challenges.
OYO integrates SpiraFlex technology into fitness products that are lightweight, compact, and provide the same benefits as training with free weights.
Studies show that resistance training not only builds bone density, lean muscle, and burns fat — you will also feel better, look younger, and live longer!

Risks and challenges
No project is without risk, but we have worked extremely hard to mitigate all unforeseen risks in the development, manufacturing and fulfillment of the DoubleFlex Black.
First, the DoubleFlex Black is the second version in the DoubleFlex product line (the first being the original DoubleFlex Silver), so we have already successfully designed, manufactured and fulfilled thousands of units to customers. We are utilizing the same manufacturing and fulfillment partners as the DoubleFlex Silver.
Second, the DoubleFlex Black is an improved version of the DoubleFlex Silver, developed after testing multiple working prototypes. The same OYO Fitness team of engineers and prototypers have developed the DoubleFlex Black, so we know it will hold to our highest standards of portable fitness durability and life cycle.
Third, at OYO Fitness we have an outstanding team of designers, engineers, and fulfillment experts to ensure the entire process from design to manufacturing to fulfillment is executed without a hitch. If a problem arises, we are confident that we will solve them.
Even with our successful track record, there are still risks with backing a Kickstarter campaign—please carefully read Kickstarter's guidelines about what exactly it means when you back a project.
We're excited to implement our manufacturing and fulfillment plan immediately after the campaign and aim to fulfill on time to each and every backer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The funds raised on Kickstarter will be used to cover tooling, injection molds and manufacturing costs for the DoubleFlex Black.
For the Kickstarter campaign, right now we will ship only to; United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Singapore, Sweden, United Kingdom. However, in response to your requests we will be adding additional countries shortly.
After the Kickstarter ends and the DoubleFlex Black is in production, we will expand our international shipping options. Thanks so much for your patience in the meantime.
Shipping is free if shipped within the United States.
Outside of the United States, shipping costs depends on the reward you selected, as well as the destination country. We have worked with our fulfillment partner to get prices as low as possible and haven’t placed a markup on any shipping costs.
When shipping outside of the United States, the receiver will pay the import fee.
We will collect your shipping information and confirm the rewards you selected upon successful funding of the DoubleFlex Black Kickstarter campaign.
Yes, a One Year Warranty. OYO will gladly replace any defective units or broken parts within the first year after you receive your DoubleFlex Black.
Not right now.
We want to be conservative with the resistance level on these first units. We will lifecycle test the first production samples with 25 and 30 lbs. of resistance. If they pass all our tests, we may offer additional 5 and 10 lb. rated FlexPacks at a discounted price to our backers and rate the unit to 25 or 30 lbs. of total resistance.
With free-weights you use momentum to swing the weight, which decreases the exercise force on the muscle. Our SpiraFlex technology does not use gravity and momentum is not created, so the DoubleFlex's 20 lbs. of resistance actually feels more like 25 lbs. compared to free-weights.
