Meet the Harrison Twins (Lewis and Owen)
Lewis and Owen Harrison are from the United Kingdom. They were born in small English town called Kendall. The Harrison twins have always been athletic. When they were younger, they both played football (soccer in the U.S.), and the two of them were highly competitive with each other despite playing different positions.
This competitive spirit stuck with them throughout school and other sports. After their professional football contracts ended, the Harrison twins branched off to do their own thing. Lewis became a personal trainer, and Owen joined the Royal Marines.
In 2012, after four years in the Royal Marines, Owen left and joined his brother as a personal trainer. The two of them soon became interested in fitness modeling and decided to join together to make their fitness modeling dreams a reality. Though they were once competitors, the two of them were now partners.
The competitive energy that flowed between them allowed them to push themselves to the top of the fitness modeling world. Owen and Lewis Harrison work diligently to ensure they grow together in order to remain successful. Their identical appearance is their brand, so they work hard to maintain their similar looks and physiques.
Owen and Lewis were born to a warehouse worker (their dad) and a hairdresser (their mom), and before turning to fitness modeling and bodybuilding, the Harrison twins worked typical everyday jobs too. Owen was a laborer, and Lewis was a painter and decorator.
The Harrison twins have shown that sibling rivalry can yield very positive results if it is used as a force for positive change rather destructive competition.

Height: 5’10” (178 cm)
Weight: 187 lbs (85 kg)

Owen and Lewis make sure that they eat the exact same thing so that their physical appearance does not differ too much. Even when they eat out or splurge on junk food, they make sure they order or eat the same thing.
Owen and Lewis cycle their carb intake between high-carb and low-carb days. Because of their genetic makeup and high metabolisms, carbs do not affect their weight as it does many other people, so they do not try to avoid them like some other fitness models do.
Owen and Lewis’ daily food plan is as follows:
1st Meal: This meal consists of 2 whole eggs, 2 egg whites, 1 scoop whey and 4 ounces water. Half an hour later, they drink 2 scoops of whey protein in 4 ounces of water.
2nd Meal: Their second meal is 2 scoops of whey protein, 1 banana, and 5 ounces of coconut milk.
3rd Meal: For their third meal, the Harrison twins eat 7 ounces of tuna and 2 tablespoons of low-fat mayonnaise.
4th Meal: Their fourth meal is 5.5 ounces of chicken breast, 1 cup of kale, 1/2 cup of Mushrooms and 1/2 cup of sun-dried tomatoes.
5th Meal: Their fifth meal is 9 ounces of chicken breast, 3.5 ounces of sweet potato and 1/4 cup of green beans ingested with 1 scoop of whey protein and 4 ounces of water.
6th Meal: The twins’ final meal consists of 7 ounces of tuna, 4 whole grain rice cakes and 2 tablespoons of low-fat mayonnaise.
On Sundays, the Harrison twins have a cheat day and enjoy alcohol and fast food. They are strong believers that bodybuilding shouldn’t keep you from enjoying life and enjoying your favorite foods.

How The Harrison Twins Can Inspire Us
Despite being identical twins and working diligently to ensure they eat the same things and exercise the same way, Owen and Lewis have different strengths. Owen has a stronger back so he is able to deadlift more than Lewis, and Lewis has a stronger chest than Owen so he is able to press more than his twin brother.
The lesson the two brothers have learned from their differences is that at the end of the day, everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, even if they are genetically the same.
This lesson can inspire us all not to compare ourselves to other people because at the end of the day, we are the only person who is exactly like us, so to compare ourselves to other people is a disservice to us all.
