Best gym in San Jose, bar none.


Great experience training here during the summer. There is a fantastic gym culture where everyone is very respectful and is there to improve and learn. There is a good mix of levels from newbies to semi/professional fighters. I started off new to MMA, and I've grown a lot in my experience with Coach Dave and the other Coaches. Would highly recommend signing up. The free class is a great way to see if it works for you :)


It’s my favorite gym have everything what you need from martial arts 🥋 to strength training.100% recommend !!!! …

Ok so if your fat and keep telling yourself, I gotta get to the gym. This is the place to be!!!!! Had my first workout today and it was great. No intimidating crazies staring at you either. Just come get your workout on and go home. Smells like a gym, looks like a gym, by golly it's a mofo gym!!!!


Great place to train whether you're an inexperienced fighter or a PRO. Conditioning is crazy if you really want to workout. Great professional staff with 10+ years of professional experience in the fight game. Everyone has mutual respect towards others, and treats you like family. You may get intimidated by these scary looking martial artist's, but everyone is actually friendly despite them beating the living lights out of each other haha!


What can I say about this gym? It’s nothing like any gym I’ve been to. When I started my journey to becoming physically fit I was down and out battling depression and anxiety. It was hard for me to even commit to going out in public to do this. From the start the Hills made me feel comfortable, every one at the gym is none judgemental, no one makes you uncomfortable or they are out. It was perfect for me. They have both been nothing but incuraging from day one. It’s crazy how I can share my life with two strangers who actually care. They are my gym family. You meet a lot of great motivated people here who become friends, who become gym family. Instead of walking into a gym full of strangers and creepers, you walk into a zone of incuragemnent and support. It was way more than I ever expected to get out of my money. Yes I go to get in shape, but for me it’s the moral support I receive that seperates this gym from any other.My first day Mrs. Hill killed me, I was like what am I getting myself into?!? She’s not even taking it easy on me?! Because she knew I could do it! She pushes me every time I’m there, every time I think I can’t she tells me to “c’mon you can do it”. It’s inspiring when Mr. Hill comes up to me after class and says he saw me and I’m doing really good.From their meal plans and 3 times a week of personal training I have seen a dramatic difference. The results are amazing and addicting. The strength I have gained both mentally and physically from Hills Training is priceless. I will only continue my journey with them now. Summer body here I come!I highly suggest if you haven’t already, to check them out. It’s like no other environment you’ve worked out at before. I love DarkHorse Gym and my awesome trainers Marica and Isiah Hill.


Amazing training and workouts, good staff, and reasonable membership prices.
