Question about English (US)

Please someone help me with this.

I just heard someone say "It will shave off a couple of years off my life"(Native english speaker, Brit)
you see there are TWO 'off's.

But, from what I learned, It should've be "I will shave a couple of years off my life".
Am i wrong?
