    One of the best gyms around town. Got into better shape, lost weight, gained confidence, and made new friends. They're willing to work with you with whatever your goals are. I walked in with zero experience in any type of martial arts. The coaches took their time with me to properly teach me technique; explaining everything to a point where I could understand it. I never felt like I was slowing down other students; in fact they supported me and helped me along the way. Everyone here - coaches, staff, fighters, students - have such big positive energy that will give you drive to come back and do better in classes. They genuinely care about your growth both in and out of the gym.
    One of the best gyms around town.

    Great staff with amazing instructors to help guide you through each class. They teach everything from Muay Thai, BJJ Gi/No Gi, MMA, Professional Wrestling, Tae Kwon Do, Boxing, Capoeira, and more! With hard work and dedication, their classes and work out regimen took me from 250 lbs. to 210 lbs. Do the work, do your best, and keep training even when you don’t want to, feel tired, or want to take a break and these guys will get you the same results! I can’t recommend Hybrid Martial Arts & Fitness highly enough!

    Best place in Chicago. The trainers make it the best place to train. Not just their overwhelming 60 years of experience between them in all mixed martial arts. It's there dedication and heart that makes the difference here. It's not just a business it's more than that. They're here for you. Train you. Grow you. And the environment is exactly what you imagine. It's not some clean cut coorperate ufc gym. That are just there to create memberships. It's the real deal. Old and modern equipment. Get to train on what generations of fighters have been training on.  Just a real environment for training and fighting and having fun. Great hearted owners. Are involved every step of the way. And make it a friendly fun and serious training facility whether it's for peak fitness, or aspiring to be pro.
    It’s the real deal.

    Absolutely intense boot camp! The instructor made sure I did each station correctly as did the students. I joined a group of very supportive and dedicated individuals and felt right at home. It's my first time in 8 years exercising due to medical issues and I couldn't have joined a better establishment!! I highly recommend Hybrid.

    Being a Mom, I was super reluctant when my husband said we should sign up the kids for Tae Kwan Do, Boxing, and Wrestling. All I could think of was all the injuries my little ones would come home with. It's been a year and a half now and even though there have been a few bruises, I can't imagine not being part of the Hybrid family. Everyone there has been so welcoming and they constantly encourage everyone to be their best. The kids have learned not just Tae Kwan Do, Boxing and Wrestling skills, they are learning self-defense and more importantly respect for everyone and everything. Hybrid will always be part of our family.

    I have been coming to Hybrid every morning without fail for the past 3 months. I'm delighted to say I have finally found my home. I've noticed positive physical and emotional changes as a result. This gym is unpretentious, low key, and with instructors who really care about not only your physical wellbeing but also about you personally. The clientele is also extremely diverse across gender, age, racial, ethnic, and professional backgrounds. Many people from the neighborhood and surrounding areas come to this place. It feels like a real community. This signals to me that the founders have worked hard to create and foster an inclusive gym culture and it shows. If you or family members are looking for a safe, challenging, and fun space to get in shape this is the place.
    It feels like a real community.
