About us

Connecting, inspiring change and transforming lives!

Our mission at Bender’s Gym is to enhance the lives of people of all ages and abilities in our community by providing an amazing fitness experience. The owners, staff and fitness instructors at Bender’s Gym strive to motivate our members to establish positive habits, change sedentary lifestyles and improve their health through regular physical activity. By connecting with and inspiring change in our members, the Benders and their employees believe they can help transform lives.

In 2006, Tom and Amanda Bender opened their first 24/7 fitness facility to realize their dream of helping those in the Decatur, Alabama, community meet their fitness goals and objectives. Adding a second facility in Hartselle, Alabama, in October 2007 and a third facility in Madison in October 2008, the Benders continue to share their vision, offering 24/7 secure access, exceptionally clean facilities, state-of-the-art equipment and outstanding group-fitness programs.

The Benders are so certain that you’ll find what you need at their clubs that they offer a free pass so you can see why they pride themselves on having the best gyms in Alabama.

The Benders believe in encouraging success in members of their Alabama gyms by creating engaging fitness experiences.

  • All facilities’ group-fitness schedules include the Les Mills programs BODYPUMP, BODYSTEP and BODYFLOW.
  • All classes at Bender’s Gym, including free-style class offerings, are led by fully trained and certified group fitness instructors.
