I couldn't find an existing question asking this, and the accepted answer for How does training work? says:

I don't think your returning Pokémon is buffed or damaged, but I can't say for certain

So, do you need to heal your Pokemon after training in a Gym, i.e. are they damaged? Do you need to revive them?

Yes, after training at a Pokégym, if your Pokémon takes any damage, they will need to be healed. Note, if your Pokémon loses, he will faint and need to be revived.

Yes you do need to heal your pokemon after training in a Gym. The lowest they can go down is to 1 hp if it is your own team's gym while they can faint in an opposing faction's team which is when you need to use revive. Personal experience.
