I didn't have Gavin so I did what any parent would do - I looked up classes to take to burn calories because that is what I do for fun. Well, not really but I wanted to treat myself out to dinner so I wanted to pre burn the calories that I was going to consume. Signed up for the free day pass. Everything was seamless... signing up for the pass and coming in for the first time to sign-in. There were no pressures to sign-up. I was honest and told the gentleman that this is a one time thing because I didn't have my kiddo... I changed and started warming up on the stair master. Please note that they do have lockers but no shower facility. I was there for a 5:30 class but I didn't know it started (I put my phone in the locker). Maybe an announcement would be helpful but I quickly joined in and was sweating bullets throughout the class. The instructor was nice, fierce, and challenging. I was the only girl in the class but that didn't stop me from trying to complete each exercise. Sometimes I slowed down and sometimes I had to stop to take a quick breather. I loved it. I was a mess when the class was over... I appreciate the pass because it allowed me to try the facility out w/o any issues or guilt. It was a great environment and I will never forget how I felt after that brutal workout.. D.U.T. (daily ultimate training). I highly recommend. More...
Great gym with a great vibe. Very friendly staff and professional personal trainer. The equipment are fairly new and up to date. Very great athletes come to this place and are very knowledgeable about the workout and exercises More...
I was given a 2 week trial by the manager, Gary and I had a very good experience with them. I came to the Daily Ultimate Training a few times with Mathew and it was great. The training kicked butt, the coach was motivating and everyone in the team was so friendly and helpful. I felt very welcome and no pressure by Gary or Mathew to sign up for membership. It's a big small, family style gym which is not where I normally go but it does the purpose. Too bad that I already had started my 2 year membership with another gym. Thank you so much, Gary and Mathew and everyone there, I will seriously consider UFC to be my gym when I buy membership next time. More...
Was in San Jose for a few weeks and dropped in for a few BJJ classes while I was in town. The UFC gym was close by and had a shower on site which helped a bunch. I was hesitant at first and thought the place would be a bit clicky. I was wrong. The guys at the front desk welcomed me into the gym and gave me a tour of the facility. Its smaller than I expected but kinda homie. The attitude was fun and I never saw anyone with a bad attitude. I took classes from professors Nick "Eastside" Borbon and Patrick Welsh. Both instructors were great and provide a ton of one on one attention to the students in the class. The students in the class are all welcoming and willing to train hard. The level of experienced students was the only downfall in my opinion, not that I am much better but it's always fun to get choked out by upper belts. This is made up by Nick rolling with the students as well. Not one complaint from this guy regarding a drop in class. Thanks UFC San Jose, I appreciate your hospitality. I'll be back when I can. More...
The best workout and great technique class! Allen is a great coach and you'll have a guaranteed good workout.Learn to fight, lose weight or both! This is the place.
My 11 yo kid (girl) goes to Brazilian Jujitsu here with coach Alex and LOVES it!This is an awesome skill and discipline for kids to learn, and I have the reassurance of knowing my girl is going to have a better chance of defending herself in a less than ideal situation. Her fitness has improved and she really enjoys it, everyone there is really nice, and it's worth every penny. More...
Its coming up on 2 years since deciding to enroll my daughters in Jiu-Jitsu @ufcgymsj. Coach Alex is very encouraging with unique strategies for each individual. He takes the time to listen and make sure all your questions are answered. Very helpful in BJJ, kick boxing, wrestling, Muay Thai, and general nutritional areas.Coach Pirate brings the technical Jiu-Jitsu to the game. Showing ways to always advance, and move smart in Gi and No-Gi. Coach Yannete, Coach Mat, Coach Jimmy, are always cheering us on and maintaining the cozy home like feel that we love here at UFC Gym San Jose. Whether you enjoy a casual work out, or you are training to be a high level competitor, they have what you need. This place has been so much more to my kids. The relationships they are building and life skills they display are a reminder why we love coming here! Strongly recommend!! More...
This place is awesome. Love the coaches here. They really know what they're doing. Love the training they provide. Big Shout to coach Wayne and coach Alex.
Coach Allen and Coach Mark are the best! This gym provides many classes at many convenient times. They push you and help you so you can achieve your fitness goals. I STRONGLY SUGGEST THIS GYM!
This place is great! Good instructors, flexible class times, and a great vibe. I'm a regular at boxing conditioning and Daily Ultimate Training (DUT). This place is a microcosm of silicon valley with a diverse membership and helpful staff. I've been working out at this gym for over 2 years and the recent remodel has the place looking clean. All of the instructors are good - I've had Janet, Alex, Marc, Matt, Alan, Gary, Wayne, Jimmy, Brass, Murph, Julian, etc. The reason the place gets crowded at times is because the classes are good and the membership cost provides great value. I've seen entire families working out together along folks of all ages. Bottom line - this gym is what you make it. You can nitpick and find fault in anything but really it comes down to YOU. Its your health, so get off your butt and start working out - you will feel much more positive about life and your fitness level will increase dramatically. More...
Awesome staff, love working out there and it will keep you in shape!
great people work here
Im like the gym my son he goes to the training every day and he loves it :)

Thanks for letting me take the DUT class yesterday, great gym. Next time I'll try out the boxing class.
If any of you (Oscar) in Honolulu, visit our UFC BJ Penn gym :) Aloha
I signed my son up here. He absolutely loves it here. They are professional and created a positive atmosphere for all people. I have only done 1 class myself but will sign myself up soon. Alex and Jared are whom I spoke with but the entire staff/trainers are awesome to work with! Sign up as soon as you can! More...
I started 3 weeks ago.. The energy here is nothing but positive and I can't say enough good things about Coach Chris and Coach Alex ! Highly recommend this gym
First and foremost I usually don't write a review just because and actually takes time to do it, however, I've been coming since late last year to this gym after being a member of most of the name brands you usually see out there nowadays and with that said; in my own opinion this gym brings excitement, desire to work out, sense of belonging, mostly everyone tries to know everyone, very consistent people working out, I feel like this is my gym in my garage and I work out with friends just like back in the old time if you know what I mean and by the way did I mention the coaches......this coaches are pretty good to work with and I strongly suggest you book a session to try them out and I guarantee you will not regret it because is so much FRICKIN FUN!!!!! that is what I have to say so far. More...

Amazing gym , very motivating, great atmosphere . If you are time constrained and want to work on all aspects of fitness , this is definitely the place . They have regular one hour group classes which address all aspects of fitness and basic martial arts skills. All trainers have extensive mma and fitness background.I have taken personal training sessions with Chris Murphy , he is very knowledgable with the science of mixed martial arts as well as traditional functional fitness. In addition to this he is a great teacher who breaks down complex techniques into simple steps . All the other trainers Freddy, Miguel , Aaron, Scott , Jarod conduct awesome classes . More...
This gym is amazing, I love how the coaches push you to do and be better!
I really appreciate the hospitality. Many gyms aren’t open on Sunday let alone I’m not a member and was able to get a work out in. Thank you!!
Cool place to train. Not over packed with people. Be ready to train hard sweat big and learn a art.
good staff and clean gym . like all in this place
My kids 10 & 6 y old boys Love this place to do Brazilian Jyujyutsu!!! Coach Alex is amazing! They do lots of exercise and lots of fun things
Welcome to family
Few more things I love about UFC after almost a year. Coach Reuben's boxing conditioning classes are awesome! He makes sure you get a killer cardio workout, super fun, and really focuses on boxing technique. We do a lot of partner work and usually end the class with body shots which is the funnest for cardio, Coach Brass and Julian will definitely push you hard! The staff knows everyone by name and most of the members know each other too! More...
(Translated by Google) Class schedules vary, the place is very nice, and very profecional service.(Original)Los horarios de clases son variables, el lugar es muy agradable, y el servicio muy profecional.
I've been coming here for almost a year now. The classes are challenging but fun, and now that they have a new batch of coaches, I've been really enjoying the workouts. I don't like feeling crowded, which is great because the class sizes are small and to be honest it's pretty empty unless it's 'prime time' (5-8pm), so if you have a flexible morning schedule it's a great gym to be part of. It is not cheap to be a member, which is the only downside, but since bootcamp style kick/boxing workouts are my absolute favorite, I'm probably going to continue despite the 'lure' of other more affordable gyms. I did start personal training here and while I was hesitant to start because of the pricing, my trainer is amazing and I feel like I get so much out of each session that it has been very, very worth it. My only advice to management would be to make sure the coaches keep changing up their workouts, as for a little while in 2017 the classes were starting to feel all the same and the circuits felt all too familiar each time I attended. But since the remodel I'm really impressed with the quality of the gym and trainers and it seems to have injected some new energy. Great place to be! More...

I signed my 3 boys up for the UFC gym and it has been nothing but a positive experience. I think they have the best coaches. My boys originally started boxing, but soon after fell in love with jui jitsu, now they want to do it more than boxing. They have competed in 6 tournaments , so far this year, winning 8 gold medals, 3 silver and 4 bronze. I never would have thought that this would be life changing for the boys, but it has. I see an improvement in attitude, focus and respect. Thanks to coach Murphy, coach jimmy and don't forget coach Alex. They are all awesome and really care about the kids. If u r hesitant to try it, I say, give it a shot. More...
My son Richard loves Jiu jitsu, thanks to Coach Murphy. He has a passion that he teaches with. I love the way he treats the kids like young adults, with respect and they respond very well to it. These kids are learning life lessons, discipline and respect for themselves and others. For my son this has translated into improved focus and completing tasks at school and home. Thank you Coach Murphy, you are great influence on Richard. More...
My son Anthony who is 10 started the New Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu kids class in November of 2016 and since then he has been in almost a dozen tournaments and has won nearly all his matches. The credit for this goes to his Coach Chris Murphy and his Checkmat team. Coach Murphy is hands down the best coach I have seen, I have coached sports myself and what I love about Coach Murph is that he implements discipline, attentiveness, and integrity when he teaches. I have noticed in the nearly 9 months that my child has been attending Coach Murphs class that his self esteem has increased as well as his physical and mental ability. Coach doesn't just train kids for competition, he trains them for success as growing people. I recommend Coach Murphy to any parent looking to get their kids in BJJ. Coach earns the UFC Gym San Jose 5 stars alone, the gym could use a cleaner look and more mat space. 2 thumbs up. More...

Very nice people, I love to hang out here!
Good place to train
Very nice people, I love to hang out here!
Love this gym! When I started a few months ago I was intimidated until i realized it's not like other gyms .. it's like everyone wants you to succeed with your goals. If you want results and you go a few times a week to the classes and talk to a coach you're on the right track . But the classes are amazing - I do that DUT and boxing conditioning a few times a week and try other classes as well. The facility is clean and it can packed (weekday evenings) but you always have motivated people around you. More...
Never in my life I thought I would love coming to a gym so much. I've been training with Alex for about 6 months now and I reached my first weight loss goal in 3 months. Which was to lose 30 pounds. I am currently working on my second goal. I've never felt so fit, strong and healthy in my life since I've started to train with alex. My life has changed completely with his help. Every workout is different, fun and challenging. Alex is currently teaching me how to box which has given me the necessary confidence and defense technique for an emergency situation. He has taught me that it's not about failing it's about how many times you're able to get up and push through. A lot of what Alex has taught me is not only useful in the gym but is useful in life. I definitely recommend training with Alex if you're looking to better yourself mentally and physically. More...
Update: Beginning Year 3!! Still here and getting better and more healthy.I've been mostly doing 1:1 training with Chris Murphy (one of the coaches there), and attending the occasional class. I have never been as fit as I am today at age 55. My lean muscle mass has increased dramatically and my body fat percentage (as measured by DEXA scans) went from high teens to low teens. The fact that I have been with one trainer for 3 years tells you what I think of the product. Without even working on it, other physical activities like my mile time have vastly improved. While the classes are good, the one hour spent 1:1 with Chris is intense and unrelenting. We'll start out with rope skipping, and then he mixes up mitt work, varied conditioning workouts, and then sparring. He's ramped me to the point where I can go pretty hard for most of the hour, hitting the wall and then moving past (most days anyway lol). I learned that is when the gains begin, with any work you can do after hitting your first wall. Never experienced that in Crossfit. The difference here I think is the 1:1 approach. Chris is fully attentive during your session. Every detail of your balance, footwork and striking is constantly being improved. During sparring, he emulates several different approaches on you, to give you good looks at different styles you might encounter. He'll do the conditioning workouts alongside me, e.g. the sled pushing, which will really test your mettle. You can't slack off or fake it with this guy, his sharp eye is on you constantly. If you are serious about learning striking and boxing (BJJ too, as he's a brown belt), you have an awesome trainer in Murph, as he's called. He'll bring his A game EVERY time. Not once has he come and not provided an intense and positive session. He has a large group of various amateur and professional fighter friends that he learns from and brings to you. Highest recommendation. More...
Great instructors! Teaches the foundation of what MMA is. Took the boxing and kick boxing class, instructors have great knowledge what they do and felt comfortable and not too overwhelmed.

Thanks for letting me take the DUT class yesterday, great gym. Next time I'll try out the boxing class.
I've been coming to this gym for 3 months now and absolutely love the classes, personal training and the staff. I have had multiple surgeries on my leg and Coach Murphy has helped me maximize my athletic potential through safe/smart training.... I can honestly say I haven't felt this good in years! After my initial review I injured my knee and was out for 6 months... I've been back for a few months and the staff has been incredibly supportive and accommodating with modifying exercises, I feel stronger than ever! The only thing keeping me from giving a 5 star review before is the floors really needed to be redone. Since then there is new management and the gym is being remodeled soon More...
This is not a gym you come to if you like putting makeup on to cruise on an elliptical. like you see people do @ Bay Club or Equinox. This is for people who like to SWEAT, get down and dirty and be super sore and actually challenge themselves. I like a little grit and this place has it- and I mean that in the best way possible. I recently moved back to SJ from Redwood city, I was going to Undisputed Boxing and was super pleased when I heard this gym was down the street from me. I feel like this is a hidden gem, hard to say because I've only taken two classes, however- both times there was plenty of space and it was not packed at all. My old gym had so many people and we did the same stuff every class, literally same stuff...every class. Both the classes I've attended at UFC have been with Miguel- very attentive, and very tough workout. I'm so sore right now it hurts to sit at my desk and write this review. I also want to give a shout out to Ruben who signed me up- very helpful guy. He called me exactly when he said he would the next day to get my info and lock me in. There is also a young woman there and she is super sweet and also attentive and helpful.So far so good- if anything changes i'll update, I'M EXCITED to work out here. More...
The General Manger (Alex) is a stand up guy. 2 thumbs up!
I love ufc gym and I love working out with chris murphy. He is the best coach I have ever seen. He really really encourages you to reach your goals. I have one by one sessions with him and I learn a lot from him. If you want to train different come to this gym. You won't regret it. More...
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GYM, it's Utterly Addicting. Thanks so much to Coach Chris Murphy, for teaching such great techniques today's 6:30 class and making it understandable. The workouts are designed to push, and that's what I like about the class. I would give it 10 stars if I could. #TRAINDIFFERENT#UFCGYMSANJOSE More...
You get what u pay for!!!! Expert coaching and challenging classes. They will push u, encourage u but won't demean u... coach Freddy, Miguel, Jarod are all experts in martial arts. Don't come here if ur looking for easy, group x. Come here if u want to be challenged and learn self defense techniques. Plus it's the UFC .... expect to train different. More...
Great gym. Since all the classes are included in the monthly price, this gym is focused towards getting you to come in every day for a class. Since I'm going to classes every day now, I feel like I'm getting in shape significantly faster. The class sizes are small enough that anyone can have their questions answered and have personal time with the trainer. Overall I'm very happy with joining this gym. More...
Ok, so this was my first boxing class w/UFC San Jose. Overall, I received a "Sweat-worthy" workout and I am happy about that. The reason for 3-stars is because I was told that proper hand-wrapping technique would be provided, as well as stretching and thorough training would be provided just before class begins. I have had previous kickboxing experience in a professional dojo, but that was quite some time ago. I forgot how to wrap my hands (sad. I know). Hand-wrapping and stretching were NOT even mentioned and class began right away with a light jog. I found someone to help me, but it interfered with class time. As for the thorough training, the instructor appeared to be explaining the punch combinations but his voice could not be heard due to the music volume and the fact that he was always on another side of the workout area. This was kind of frustrating because the next exercise would begin before confirming that everyone actually heard the instructions. There are other instructors on the schedule, so I think that I will try again on a different night. I will not judge the entire business based on this single experience and I know that every trainer/coach has his/her own style; this was just not what I expect or desire. I will try another class and update my review!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Ok, so I finally visited another class and the other class was amazing!! I guess its all about finding the right fit! I am on a mission for fitness and I am pleased with my decision to make this my gym. More...
I was looking for a new place to work out after moving back from LA, and decided that I wanted to learn how to fight. Since this UFC gym is super close to my house, I thought I'd give it a shot. Started boxing with Coach Murphy, then going to jiu-jitsu classes, and now I practice it with Coach Murph during personal training sessions as well. After only two months of training, I'm in WAY better shape than I ever was doing Crossfit in LA for six months. Plus I can kick some ass now, instead of just doing random weight movements. It's seriously the most fun workout I could imagine, and Chris Murphy is the best trainer anyone could ever ask for. He genuinely cares about the progress I'm making and believes in me even when I don't believe in myself, and it really makes a huge difference. 10/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone. More...
Group fitness is the way to go! Don't get me wrong, I like having "me time" at the gym. But there is something about working out with other motivated individuals that is just so inspiring. The classes are tough (I'm literally drenched in sweat after a 1-hour class), but very rewarding. All of the coaches are very knowledgeable and approachable - there's something to learn from these guys! I've been told the Sunnyvale location is much bigger, but this facility is clean and has enough room to accommodate a full class (albeit it's smaller size). If you are looking to train different, UFC Gym is the place for you! More...
Chris Murphy's coaching has the whole package. Not only he helps me cut weight, gain muscle, increase stamina, boost up my fighting game but as well as better my mental game like confidence, tenacity, and toughness. He knows what he is doing and makes the whole process of fighting simple to understand. He also is a positive character I like to you surround yourself by since I have a long big journey ahead of me. His comedic comments will keep you entertained. If Yelp allowed me to rate more stars, I would have. Chris is a great coach training me the UFC game which is both fun and badass. More...
Super excited starting out here with Freddy!!! Going to get amazing results with so much help and support!
today was my first day and I had a blast it was in intense definitely going back can't wait for my new journey so excited for the new year
ese es el donde Boy pero todos los demás mis respetos Defensa Personal bien mus respeto para a todos mis amigos que que están ufc
I joined about 9 months ago and it was one of the best decisions I've made. As some background, I wrestled in high school and then did a few years of judo and BJJ afterwards and try to stay in shape year round. But for the past 10 years or so I had fallen into the usual monotonous workout routine which consisted of machine cardio followed by some lifting. Workouts had become boring and uninspiring and I realized that I needed to mix it up.My first week here, I started with the group boxing classes and I was humbled. Damn, "fitness" is redefined when you don't set your own routine and your own breaks. These classes are great for cardio, core and basic boxing and kickboxing technique. Almost all the trainers have some fighting experience so it's not a nonsense boxercise class. The gym has lots of heavy bags, a ring, some matspace, a double ended bag, speed bags, some cardio equipment and weights. They don't have a ton of weights so if you need to do a 20 set chest workout and your focus is to increase your max bench or squat then this isn't the gym for you. And this is primarily a boxing/kickboxing gym right now but grappling classes are in the works and should be starting soon.After a few months, I started training with Chris Murphy aka "Murph." Murph loves what he does and is good at it. Since I'm a big MMA fan, I was intrigued by his background. He's a professional fighter who actually lived in Brasil for a couple years and trained at Nova Uniao. Nova Uniao is the fight camp where Jose Aldo, the pound for pound # 1 MMA fighter in the world trains. Murph has a solid background in boxing, wrestling and BJJ. His sessions mostly involve boxing and basic fitness but he also offers one on one jiujitsu training. Working out with Chris has gotten me into great shape and my boxing technique is improving each week. I like that he works me hard and takes me out of my comfort zone because that's the way to get into real shape.The last thing I'll say about the gym is that it really has a family feel to it. The trainers and the management are all down-to-earth and friendly and know me by my first name. No meathead, bro personal trainers walking around like they own the place. If you want to get into real shape or are tired of the same old routine, then check this place out. More...
No matter what your goal or skill set you can benefit from this gym. They have a variety of classes that are a tremendous way to build cardio and skills. All of the coaches are personable and knowledgeable at their craft so dont be scared to ask questions. My personal goal since joining was to train in boxing. I've been taking private sessions with Chris Murphy who is an excellent coach as well as a talented fighther. He has done a great job accessing my weakness' and helping break bad habits which is crucial in the sport of boxing. I have seen drastic improvements in just a months span. Thanks UFC Gym! More...
I moved to NorCal about the 6 months ago and one of the best decisions I've made is join the UFC San Jose Gym. Oscar, Miguel and the rest of the staff have created a great team environment to enjoy training, build relationships and learn about your fitness goals. As I've always been a boxing fan and had some experience in the sport, I was more inclined to focus on boxing. I recently started doing 1:1's w/ Chris Murphy and have truly enjoyed the workouts and can see the immediate change in my technique.The top 3 reasons ( in no specific order) you should train w/ Chris:1- He is both, a fighter and a trainer. This makes a big difference in his approach to combine challenging workouts w/ a pace that is optimal for you to experience results.2- He takes time to give you additional insight on the sport. This is really good for someone like me that might watch several PPV fights a year and you always end up catching something new.3- He is very professional and sets a good tone for the gym overall. Training w/ Chris is fun! More...
If you want incredible results, then UFC Gym is the place to train. I've been part of this gym for a year and a half now. Training at this gym is a privilege and the mindset you build while training here will push you to excel in your fitness goals. All instructors are great but the biggest reason for me to train here is the Head Coach/Trainer, Chris Murphy. Since I've been doing 1:1 training with him, I've been seeing great results in my strength, endurance and picked up a lot on my boxing techniques. Chris has deep knowledge and experience in fighting and he will push you to the limit to reach your goals. Highly recommended. Training here will change your life. More...
I started training in November. I could tell right away Chris Murphy was an excellent coach. Chris has a very impressive background and it shows in his expert instruction. He has a genuine love for the arts of Boxing, BJJ and MMA. I have been training in Martial Arts all my life and I am learning and becoming a better athlete through Chris's authentic coaching. Chris takes in consideration my needs and pushes me to be my best. The UFC gym is a clean pleasant training environment. The members and staff are friendly and I always feel welcome there. I would recommend both the UFC gym and my trainer Chris to anyone. More...
Just signed up within the last week, and I got to say that this gym is the best value out of any workout environment I've seen in the area. Anybody else is not even close.I had specific goals to get back in shape ( wasn't in terrible shape, but I let myself go the last year or so), learn how to box, and get some tips on basic self defense.When I signed up, I was expecting to pay something around $150 a month, which is what most chain facilities charge for similar type of amenities and training. I was shocked to find the price way lower than that, and took advantage of a promotion to extend my service agreement. I checked out other MMA type gyms and boxing establishments and I would have paid a lot more and gotten less in return.Note: The classes can be tough if you are just starting out, you have to learn to pace yourself and not try to impress anybody, otherwise you are going to pass out in the first 20 minutes. However, the staff is well-trained and they will keep checking in on the beginners. Lot's of fundamentals are taught regarding stance, hand movements, strikes and technique. This is important so members can learn how to hit correctly and not hurt themselves. Significant time is used hitting the heavy bags and pairing up with partners to practice the combinations.What is also great is that there is a 50/50 ratio of men to women, which means the instruction is solid. Feedback from women I talk to previously is that they are either intimidated by MMA training or they have gotten bad instruction in the past, but here that is definitely not the case.Miguel, Chris and the other trainers have lots of experience and are very good at taking the time to teach you right. Most importantly, they have classes throughout the day ( as opposed to just nights) so it is easy to find a class to fit your schedule. More...
Best workout I've had in a long time. Training with Chris Murphy has been great! We started two weeks ago and I'm down about 5 pounds. I'm well on my way to meet the goals we set at our first session. He's a great trainer - positive, fun, and flexible hours. Couldn't recommend anyone better! More...
Recently, there were some changes (in a good way!) in this gym. New management, a couple of new coaches, and a different way of teaching classes - you get to do mitts now too (if you want to), so it's not just a pure cardio class. I'm working with Chris Murphy on my wrestling and boxing skills, but he is also an experienced BJJ, strength&conditioning, and MMA coach. You can't go wrong with this guy. If you give him your 100%, he'll always go the extra mile for you and will help you reach your goals. His classes are intense, but you'll get the results! Oscar is the new manager and tries hard to keep us happy here so you'll be taken care of. You can try classes for free so come and check it out yourself!Dream big, work hard, expect results! More...
Great intence full body workout. I just came back after 6months first day was rough.I'm feeling great now, definitaly going to sighn up for the whole year. I just move from NYC and as a student in Muay Thai and Boxing..I was looking for a solid gym and profecional stuff. If you want to lose waight and chalange yourself, build your full comfidance and cardio come check it out you have nothing to lose.Thnk you guys. More...
Overall a nice small gym with awesome instructors and grueling but fun classes. I signed up because I wanted to change up my workout routine with boxing classes and liked how the schedule was full of classes each day, great for whether you want to start your early morning strong or let go of some stress in the evening after a long day of work. I've only taken boxing, but kickboxing and BJJ classes are also offered if you're so inclined. The classes are a mix of boxing drills, cardio and bodyweight exercises for a good all-around workout. Shah, Miguel and Brandon are great instructors who are all motivating and easily approachable. They each have their own style and I was able to pick up something different in terms of technique in their classes, so I'd recommend trying them all out. I definitely prefer going to classes in the morning as they're not so crowded and you get can more individual help on form.I also wanted some more work on technique, so I signed up with some personal training sessions with Shah. He really helped me with my form, footwork and timing and I was able to progress at a great rate. I really liked the variety in his sessions as we'd train combinations, footwork and defense, heavy bag and speed bag. He's really fun to work with and will definitely help you reach your fitness goals. More...
If you are looking to get in shape and more importantly remain in shape this is a great place. The exercise routine here is very sustainable and you will learn to fight, defend yourself, improve flexibility, co-ordination, the boxing and kickboxing combo not only works out your body but also your brain in terms of focus, reflex and coordination. This is old school -real deal, not some lousy unsustainable 30 day work out plan, so be patient. Shah, Miguel and Brandon are excellent trainers. Plus the music here is awesome, the trainers go the extra mile to customize the play list to fit the workout. I have taken personal training session under Shah, it is excellent , he has very good communication skills, attitude and very professional. My boxing and kickboxing skills have improved a lot. I do not believe in violence, but if someone does threaten me, I am prepared to defend myself and kick some butt. More...
I cannot rave enough about this gym!1) the staff is professional - at what other gym does this actually happen From the front desk to each individual trainer, they take the time to get to know your name and are genuinely helpful. 2) each workout is intense and effective! I never leave disappointed. This gym pushes me wayyyy harder than I would ever push working out on my own. Totally worth it. 3) the facility is always clean, and maintenance issues are taken care of in a timely manner. Booyah. I love all the trainers and look forward to every class, but a big shout out to Shah! If you are looking for a personal trainer, he's the one to go to - excellent classes, super energetic, and he focuses on the results YOU want to achieve. Five stars. I love love love this gym.

I've been a member at UFC San Jose since Feb 2014 and can honestly say it's one of the best gyms I've been a member of. Helpful staff, great equipment, not as intimidating as I expected (ha!), and a packed schedule of classes. Shah is an awesome instructor who after 9 months still kicks my butt in his boxing/kickboxing classes. No two workouts are the same, so classes are never boring. People are awesome, and membership fees are reasonable. I also see Shah for personal training, and honestly at first I wasn't sold on personal training. I've had bad experiences with over-zealous trainers who were more concerned with THEIR goals than mine. That said, Shah's a kick ass trainer! Whatever your goals are, whatever level you're starting at, he's there to help you get where you want to go. I would never have been able to push myself to be where I am now, so thanks Shah! Come check out a class and I can almost guarantee you'll be hooked! More...
I'm signed up! Sign up with me for a hefty sweat and a heavy burn on calories. OMG, I wanted to change up my cardio routine a bit to shock the body and boy did this happen. Keep in mind that i've only been doing a couple short cardios each week before diving into one of UFC's classes but I was sweating profusely within 15 minutes of starting the class, during, and for about 15 minutes post class. I think this is just what my body needs.Check it out if you're looking for a high impact and effective cardio session or trying to hone down on some defensive skills. More...
Amazing experience... Great coaching. Very hard workout.
I like the classes they offer. I am never bored. The trainers keep you motivated and are extremely helpful. Thy are always upbeat and ready to help you reach your goals. All you have to do is show up and they take care of the rest :) More...
I've been a member now for awhile. Staff and trainers are excellent. Looking forward to 2014 and the new classes that are coming.
I wish I had known about this place a year ago and instead of Club One. Gross, but I probably sweat more here in one class than when I would work out at Club One Silver Creek or Santana Row. Oh well, better late than never. I inquired online and Amanda contacted me right way. She wasn't pushy at all and convinced me to come in and take a trial class. Took a kickboxing class with Kelvin & I loved it. Ended up convincing my neighbors and BF to join with me. Don't knock it til you try it. Take a free class! More...
I've officially been a member here for a month and what can I say, this is like my second home. I come every day and I can honestly say that this is the best gym that I have ever been a member of. There are so many classes offered throughout the day so you really have no excuse not to go. The staff is friendly, supportive, and helpful and the gym is clean and doesn't smell like other fighting gyms. The rates are reasonable, especially if you come take a class at least 4 times a week. Alex or Amanda will hook you up with a great rate and always provide service with a smile. Now, for the important stuff. I've taken the boxing, kickboxing, mma, and personal training classes and they all are amazing. There are many instructors, but Caleb, tony, David, and Shah are my favorites. Caleb is very friendly and works with you to break down your technique while still providing you with a great workout. Tony will kick your ass. Every time. Period. His classes make me sweat more than I ever have in my life and he teaches you lengthy punching/kicking combos that teach you speed and accuracy. David seems intimidating but he's a funny guy with a great amount of energy. He forces you to push your limits and makes sure you've got the correct form. With small classes, he has you workout in stations which provides you with one on one workouts (mitt work/thai pads). Shah is by far the nicest instructor, he's funny and energetic and provides you with a great workout As well. He makes sure you've got the correct technique and will catch your punches too! Shah also teaches mma/Bjj classes. Chris is a great personal trainer. You tell him what you want and he delivers. Kills you in a time span of 30 minutes, but the one on one attention is unbeatable. Love doing mitt work with Chris! Helpful hint: morning classes are best. Fewer people in the gym means more individual attention. Plus you get the feel of personal training without paying extra!Just join already. You won't be sorry More...
Just joined this Gym I felt right at home from the start and the price is great too
UPDATE: It's been 15 months since I started and I'm still going three times a week to the classes (which are still unlimited with membership), an hour of hell but you feel so good afterwards for the rest of the day. We could use more people in the morning, come on by, ask for a tryout class. You won't be disappointed.I've also gotten some Personal Sessions with the coaches in Boxing and Fitness. The Boxing coach, Shah, is an excellent instructor and he helped me improve my form (as it was I kept straining my shoulder, but it's much better now). If you want to improve your boxing form and get a good personalized workout, I highly recommend Shah!Original Review: I did the P90X series at home a couple years back, went the full 90 days. I got back into decent shape, but it was a lonely process, and Tony Horton was always going to be douchey, no matter how many routines I mastered. Why, Tony? Why did you not acknowledge my accomplishments? So this year I turned 40, and I saw that UFC had a place around the corner from where I live, so why not? DAMN that first free class killed me, but it was amazing how great I felt the next day (in addition to being sore as hell). The kickboxing class wasn't just some string of cardio drills masquerading as training, they really want you to know how to punch, kick, knee and dodge, they just know how to make it fun. I've been going for a couple months now, and I am hooked. I'm in the best shape I've been in since I was 17.The only danger is you have to keep up the momentum! If you go once a week, every single class you take will be the hardest class ever (this took me a month to figure out). Make time for at least three visits a week (you can attend any and every class you want, unlimited), and each week spend an hour or two of free time in the bag cage and on the mat. The trainers are all experienced and each have a unique teaching method, which if you balance properly, is WORLDS better than P90X, Insanity or whatever you do in the comfort of your own home. It helps to have someone bulldogging you for an hour, believe me.Cost is reasonable, plus if you can, pay for a set of 5 personal training sessions (beyond the 3 free they give you for signing up) and you can learn some great techniques that you can do in your free time between classes. I can't recommend this place enough. More...
Hello, are those arm muscles I have not used since...um...never?! I had a blast trying this place last night. I will admit that my performance was less than spectacular, but the trainer and assistants were very patient. It was a pleasant surprise to work out with such friendly class mates. The pricing schedule is not outrageous, but this gym is fairly new so get your booty in there and sign up before everyone finds out about it. There is plenty of parking a good spread of sessions and a Starbucks in the same parking lot. Okay, I am not supposed encourage dehydration, but hey. Give them a call and arrange a visit, it is worth it. Do not follow your GPS, that will take you to McDonalds. It is on the corner shopping center on Payne and Winchester. The trees block the signage and you might miss it. No five stars because I just tried it, I will update soon. More...
