All About: Contemporary Athlete

Contemporary Athlete

Contemporary Athlete is a high performance training facility for athletes of all ages and all disciplines.  Hard work and results are what this center is all about.  Trainer Dave Bender (with lots of certifications after his name including:  ACSM personal trainer, Level 2 USA Powerlifting Coach, Russian Kettlebell Challenge Certificate, Level 2 USA Rowing Certified Coach, USTFCCCA Endurance Specialist, IYCA Youth Fitness (Level 3) Speed and Agility, and Nutrition Specialist) has been a competitive athlete for as long as he has had the ability. His love for supporting others is what ultimately helped him decide to open Contemporary Athlete.

His training philosophy goes something like this:

“those that train here are here to work, to challenge themselves and to discover where the line in the sand is and then to jump over it, in order to achieve their performance goals.”

David Bender is serious, but not scary.  I recently joined a group training for women and it was pretty intense, but an awesome workout!  Even in the group setting, Dave was very aware of everyone’s individual goals and tailored the workout to meet their needs.  I worked extremely hard in class, but found the workout to be effective and results-driven.

Contemporary AthleteDave works with people at all stages of their pursuit of health and fitness, from Olympic Hopefuls, High School Athletes and folks who have yet to channel their inner Ninjas and even those who are in the process of recovering after physical injuries.  They work with Dave individually, or in groups and challenge themselves frequently.

“The end goal is the development of a highly functional person. Anyone who has increased their performance, whether on the track, bike, mat, gridiron, court, on the water, in the pool, or just walking down the street, makes them a better person, ” says Bender.  And that pretty much sums it up.

Open House on Saturday, October 5th!

If you have been curious to meet Dave in person and check out what this unique facility is all about, here’s your chance!  Join us on Saturday October 5th from 2-5 and learn what it means to be a part of Contemporary ATHLETE.  The event will include delicious and “real” food from Good Morning Cafe in Ballston Spa.   Make sure you are around at 3pm for a demo of the famous “warm-up” and even kick off your shoes and get a chance to try it out for yourself.
