John Gardner

Founder & Lead Trainer

John founded Kudos because he’s obsessed with helping people get in shape and because conventional fitness services are just too expensive, inconvenient, inflexible and ineffective. He’s a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and has been training folks for 10+ years. Prior to founding Kudos, he was a senior executive at BuildZoom, a home improvement marketplace, and an advisor to Fortune 500 CEOs as a Consultant at Bain & Company. He received his MBA from Dartmouth and BA from Columbia University. He loves working one on one with clients, leveraging technology to help them excel and bringing data driven decision making to bear in a market that is all too often full of hot air.

Tom Kremer

Cofounder & Lead Engineer

Tom founded Kudos because his experience as a collegiate and Olympic-caliber swimmer showed him that anyone can stick to healthy, active regimen and love it with the right mindset. After swimming with Olympic coaches, trainers, and athletes in preparation for Rio and his 21-time All American career on Stanford’s swim team, he turned to tech to help bring structure and accountability to anyone’s workout schedule. He completed his MS at Stanford studying Human-Computer Interaction and his BS from science in Computer Science, and has been leading the engineering charge at Kudos ever since.
