About Kudos

Kudos is a remote personal training and nutrition coaching service that combines an app, Twilio, and machine learning to enable our certified trainers to drive incredible results for clients with a few minutes of labor per month.

Our core thesis is that humans need human support & accountability to stick with difficult behavior change. Personal trainers can provide this push but are too expensive and inconvenient for the vast majority of people. We bring elite level personal training and nutrition coaching to clients when and where they want, at a price they can actually afford.

Our mission is to make millions of people healthier by democratizing access to expert training, and we're scaling toward that goal. We grew 3x between December 2018 and January 2019, have amazing unit economics, unheard-of monthly retention of 95%, extremely happy clients paying $1,140/ year, and an amazing team of remote coaches.

Company Culture

First and foremost we are mission-driven. We want to build an incredible multi-billion dollar company by actually creating incredible value for our clients and making a major dent in the obesity epidemic. Beyond that, we are focused on transparency, clear communication, moving fast and being data driven.
