All the Gyms have levels called prestige. The gym's prestige is increased and decreased wheter or not a challenge has has been defeated or if a challenger has defeated the gym. If the prestige is 0 then the gym is lost and another team can claim it. You can notice it because the gym become white.

If the Gym is under the control of your team you can station a Pokémon there in order to fortify the gym to don't lose prestige. As the gym increase the prestige, more players are able to place Pokémon there. You can also train your other Pokémon to the Gym.

If a Gym is already claimed by another team, you can challenge that Gym using your own Pokémon. You will use a team of 6 Pokémon to engage a battle to decrease the prestige of the Gym you will claim control.
