Kudos has been a game changer for me in achieving my goals through accountability and simple yet effective workouts.

I've been using Kudos for my personal training for a few months and so far the experience has been really good.

Previously, I tried ClassPass, and many other workout apps (such as Freeletics etc). But there was never a service that can meet my personal needs perfectly. Also, trainers keep adjusting the workout plans based on my feedbacks. For example, we decide to do jogging instead of rowing because my hip hurt after sitting too long. Most importantly, the feeling of someone instead of some app notification to remind you to work out definitely makes myself more accountable to go to the gym on a regular basis.

I would recommend Kudos to my friends who don't want to spend too much money on personal training (in person training costs about ~$600 in SF a month), but still want the personal fitness plan and experience. It's a game changer for me and I never regret it.

Pros:

- Hold myself accountable for my workout.

- Help to build muscle and achieve my personal goals.

Cons:

Nothing much so far.

Hi Product Hunt! John and Anton here - we built Kudos to democratize access to high end fitness. We all need the kind of support, structure, and accountability that certified personal trainers provide, but we need it when and where we want, and without the $100/ hour cost. With Kudos, your certified trainer creates a personalized exercise and nutrition plan each week, and then makes it easy to stick with it, providing daily guidance via text message and our app. We’re offering $25 off the first month (normally $95) for folks who find us on Product Hunt. Just sign up at https://www.kudos.fit/producthun... We would appreciate all feedback and suggestions on how we can improve and scale Kudos to help millions of people get fit.

Kudos has completely changed my relationship with exercise. I’ve always been able to come up with a somewhat legitimate excuse not to work out (trainers are too expensive, classes are too expensive, I have no idea what to do when I get to the gym...etc.) Kudos has solved all of those issues for me. My trainer has taken time to get to know me, my schedule, and my goals, and crafts weekly workouts for me that are getting me to where I want to be on a daily basis. Health is so important, so I‘m so thankful Kudos has made it affordable. I can’t say enough about it!

Pros:

I’m in the best shape of my life. Unlike classes, Kudos fits into my work travel schedule & best of all- it’s not breaking the bank!

Cons:

I haven’t run into any cons yet

I was tired of feeling like I just couldn't get to the gym, eat right, or get to my fitness goals. I just couldn't do it. Things would always come up, work was hard, life was stressful. And no amount of inspirational memes was working for me. Kudos has changed that. No joke. I do not review random stuff. I am writing this review for people like me who may just be tired of feeling like their fitness goals just sort of keep slipping away. I have gone from 185 lbs to 168, and sure that has taken a year, but you know what? I would NOT have gotten there without Kudos. The idea of, scheduling requirements, and cost of group fitness or personal training just isn't for me. And when I finally accepted that, I realized that something like Kudos could work for me. And it has. It's really cheap too, when you consider how much I spend on coffee alone. I've had a few friends and folks I love sign up recently and it makes me happy to think that they're going to be getting the kind of results I've gotten for myself. I love me my Kudos. Thank you guys.

Pros:

Helps you achieve fitness goals you can't get to alone

Cons:

None, honestly.
