House of Hustle was created while sitting around the dinner table as a family of seven in the home of Dominic and Gina Peralta. After several hours of sharing ideas, the name House of Hustle was ultimately the name that everyone was passionate about. So why the name, House of Hustle? We wanted to create a place that was not just a training facility that would train beginner to high level athletes, but more importantly was a place that athletes, as well as their families, would think of as a home away from home, with a family atmosphere. The type of place that you are greeted by your name no matter how many people attend the facility. The following days were spent creating a logo. After many iterations, we settled on a logo. The one you see on our door when you walk in.


We started training outside, behind middle schools. Early on, the training sessions comprised of our own children and their friends. As more people started attending, we eventually started to rent a court at a church in the neighboring city. During this time, we became a Blue Zones certified participating organization, which promotes healthier living, conducted community events to spread awareness of our services and give back to the community. After several months of renting, we eventually found a place to call home in Fort Worth, TX. We put up our own finances to get everything we needed to get started. It was such a scary thing to do considering that we did not have enough athletes attending for it to make sense at the time. Little did we know that we would have the opportunity to train some amazing athletes over the next several years at this location. We have had the privilege of training athletes that have went on to play all levels of college volleyball and basketball. We have even had some semi-pro athletes come to House of Hustle to workout as well. 


As part of our continued growth, we recently converted House of Hustle into a nonprofit organization. In doing so, our goal is to continue to expand the reach of people that we can serve to help further their athletic careers. The decision to pivot organizationally will allow us to help families that were like us, families that struggle financially. With multiple kids that all participated in sports, we often found it extremely difficult to put all the kids in quality training at the same time. Being able to assist families that might be currently struggling financially is of great importance to us, as we have been in their shoes, and all kids deserve to be able to participate in quality training and programming.


Throughout the years we were always looking for a larger facility to expand. Finally, last year, two additional units became available for rent next to our location. Our family and friends helped us tear down partition walls, remove offices, remove restrooms, hang A/C units, install new electrical and new lighting, install sheetrock, texture, as well as paint. It was truly a marvelous display of what House of Hustle is all about. Once again, we put in our own finances and with the help of a generous donation from a family member we were able to get the wood floor that would be the main attraction of the facility. Our court has since served as the home for us to run practices for leagues that we administer, 3v3 games, pickup games for adults, team practices for not only our 6 teams that have been created but for other teams as well in our community.


In October of 2023, our facility was flooded due to improper drainage behind our building. We experienced some minor flooding in our smaller unit but were assured that the flooding would not be an issue due to the installation of a French drain. Despite the assurances, the French drain was ultimately not able to handle the amount of water that would collect behind our building. The drainage has since been corrected by rerouting the gutters from the back of the building to the front of the building and the installation of a curb that controls the runoff that comes from the adjacent property. Although we worked as fast as we could to clean up all the water, the damage has proven to be irreparable. We have already had to remove a 1.5 ft against the one of the walls to mitigate the bowing of the floor from expansion due to moisture. Although the removal helped the side of the floor, the damage is becoming more evident throughout the middle of the floor. We have had several estimates provided to us and it will cost approximately $75,000 to remove the current floor and install a new one. We will also require another $14,000 for the upgrade of an HVAC system to ensure that the temperature can remain at a constant temp that helps minimize the expansion and contraction of the floor. Lastly, we will be unable to provide services during the construction time so we will need $6,000 to cover the down time that we will be unable to conduct business.


Thank you deeply for wanting to learn more about our story and we hope that with your help we can repair our floor and return our facility to the amazing place that it has become.
