About this project
*For more details about the DoubleFlex Black PRO and other stretch goals, scroll down near the bottom of this page.
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.
Imagine a total body gym that only weighs 2 lbs., yet produces up to 25 lbs. of smooth resistance — and fits in your pocket!
World's only exercise device that applies resistance to both sides of muscle groups in one motion, building a balanced body in half the time.
Combining strength with movement, without weight or momentum, our portable gym is the new way to get fit anywhere, anytime.
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 with a 3 year warranty.
Make the commitment to fit fitness into your lifestyle!
Since 2012, Backercamp has helped make over 5,000 projects possible.
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 25 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 on the DVD and available online for streaming. Our Work Out Video App will stream the latest videos to your mobile device too.
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.
- The DoubleFlex Black PRO has built in sensors to track reps, sets and resistance, and will bluetooth connect with our OYO Coaching App to provide real-time feedback and coaching. It will also share your data with other health apps.
- The PRO requires a $49 upgrade to your DoubleFlex Black if you have already ordered, or if haven't ordered yet you can select as a new reward - The DoubleFlex Black Pro for $179.00.
- Due to additional development the Pro will ship in October.
Upgrading to the PRO is really simple if you have already ordered the DoubleFlex Black — you just need to increase your pledge amount by $49. Here's how:
- Log in to Kickstarter & go to the OYO DoubleFlex Black campaign
- At the top it should say "You're a backer" and what you pledged. Click the "Manage your Pledge" green button.
- The next page will show your pledge details — click the "Change your Pledge" blue button.
- In the Pledge Amount box add $49 to the total price there (this price will be the cost of the reward level you selected + shipping to your country).
Note: if you selected a reward with multiple DoubleFlex Blacks or have doubled your pledge to get two DoubleFlex Blacks, you'll need to add $49 for however many you want to upgrade the DoubleFlex Black PRO (for example: if you selected the Small Group Package and want 2 of the 5 DoubleFlex Black to be PRO, add $110 to your order).
Last, if you don't have a time to upgrade but still want to upgrade to the PRO, you'll be able to upgrade during our Backer Survey that you will receive within three to four weeks.
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
