“I had to find a good training gym after moving back down to the South Bay from Oakland. I decided to check out AKA-Sunnyvale since they were under 2 miles from my office. After walking through the doors, I was greeted by Alex who runs the gym. He was so receptive and helpful with going through the different programs they offer and breaking them down by price point. I decided on the boxing/kickboxing combo and I’ve never been happier with my fitness routine.
The boxing instructor, John, is very kind, helpful and non-intimidating. Anthony and Zack teach the kickboxing classes and they’ve also designed a similar environment to John’s boxing class. The environment at AKA and the skill-set of the instructors is top-notch and I could never see myself training anywhere else.
Thank you Alex, John, Anthony and Zack for all you do- working out has gone from being a chore to a hobby for me. I’d recommend AKA to anyone looking to take their training to the next level.”

“I’ve been pretty much putting off my foray into martial arts all my life. I was a complete beginner when I arrived. Each and every person I met made me feel at home.
AKA Sunnyvale is beginner friendly. They offered a free introduction class and then a complimentary class to whatever class I was interested in. I’ve been fortunate to work with all of their instructors and I could not ask for more. Alex, John, Anthony, Jon and Zach all share a passion for their sports and they’re more than willing to share that with those who are interested.
Having been a member of other gyms in the past, I found AKA a break from the norm. Its family orientated, that means small things are different, their coaching setup is not a revolving door and you can work your technique with someone who’s not going to be gone in 2 months. They get to know your name, there’s a good atmosphere and the people who go there are motivated and share the same work ethic. On the mat in whatever we do, the same shared ethos of helping everyone around get to the next level.
I’ve been there a little over 6 months and have ditched my other gym, its that good.”
