A certified personal trainer via app & text for $3 a day

People need human support & accountability to make difficult behavior changes like better exercise & nutrition. But personal trainers are just too expensive! Kudos leverages a data-driven app & text messaging to provide daily training from a certified trainer for $3 a day.

  • Pros: 

    - Hold myself accountable for my workout.

    - Help to build muscle and achieve my personal goals.


    Nothing much so far.

    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.

    I've been using Kudos for six months and highly recommend it. I've knocked minutes off my running pace and am stronger than I've ever been. The workouts are tailored to my goals, schedule, and equipment access (I don't have a gym membership). I get a great variety of cardio and strength training focusing on different areas, and continue to challenge myself. I had no idea how much I'd enjoy dumbbell workouts before since I never really knew what to do!

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.
Congrats on the launch guys!! @john_gardner @agilgur5
Great product and a low barrier way to try to improve one’s health
wouldn't do the pricing per day, monthly perhaps? For a minimum of 6 or 12 months?
Hi @tiesg92, our pricing is in fact monthly, but with no minimum, and you can cancel anytime. Some of our clients choose to pre-pay for multiple months as well. The "$3 a day" was meant to compare how it only costs as much as a coffee to get into great shape with our service. We'll think about how to word that more clearly, thanks for bringing that up Ties!
