Important Member Information on New Safety Measures

Thursday, June 11, 2020

Move by BJC reopened June 18. Here’s what our members can expect as they return:

  • High-risk/senior hours are 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. each day. Please make an effort to get your exercise in during a different time if you do not fall into the high risk or senior demographic

  • Regular cleanings of the facility will continue although we will no longer be closed during those cleaning times. Please be aware that we conduct full cleanings of the facility upon opening, at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day, and upon closing the facility (M-F). On weekends, we will be cleaning the facility between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. During these cleaning periods, equipment may not be in use for a short time (10 minutes) while our disinfectants and cleaning solutions are applied.

  • The doors to the 4220 Duncan Building will remain locked during the coming months; you will need your building access card to access Move.

  • We will require daily registration for all of our group exercise classes, as new capacity guidelines limit the number of participants.

    • Follow these steps to register for a group exercise class:

      1. Log into your member portal for the first time via the desktop website

      2. Download and Log into the Move by BJC app 

      3. Select classes from the bottom window

      4. Select the class you would like to attend and click sign up at the bottom of your screen, click confirm

    • To unregister for a group exercise class:

      1. Log into the Move by BJC app a minimum of 15 minutes before the class 

      2. Select classes from the bottom window

      3. Select the class that you signed up for and click unregister at the bottom of your screen, click unregister in the pop up window to confirm

  • What you need to know about your registration:

    • NO-SHOW POLICY: If you are unable to make your registered time please be sure to unregister at least 15 minutes prior to your start time to avoid being charged a $3 no-show fee.

    • If your desired class is full, you have the option to add your name to the waitlist and you'll be notified if space becomes available

    • If you do not attend your class and do not unregister you will be charged a no-show fee

    • Please notify the front desk staff that you need to check into your class

    • Please do not arrive prior to your registered group exercise class

    • Registration will open 48 hours prior to the start time

    • You will be screened prior to entering the facility, which includes fever checks with a no-touch thermal scanner. We will also confirm your class registration at this time.

      • To speed up this process, you can complete your screening prior to arrival and present a screenshot:

    • All members are required to wear a facial covering during the entirety of their visit. Facial coverings must cover nose and mouth at all times.

    • The portion of our locker room containing showering facilities will not be accessible. Please bring only what you need to exercise (keys, phone, towel, water bottle), as storage is still limited and towels will not be provided.

    • Strict social distancing standards will be in place on the workout floor.

    • Water fountains will not be operational, but bottle fillers are available.

    • You must have a credit card on file to purchase items in our pro shop (drinks, supplements, Move apparel).

Information Regarding Classes and Other Services
  • Our group exercise studios will be available for rental to small groups and be used for small capacity group exercise classes and training; we will continue to host virtual “group” exercise for those who have a Virtual membership add-on. Furthermore, a “group” may only consist of a single individual and others in a “home group”, i.e. those who have maintained a living space together throughout this pandemic period. Reservations must be made to participate in a class, and thorough cleaning of the studio will take place before and after each class.

  • Traditional group exercise classes, led by a live instructor, will not be offered until our team has reviewed and incorporated City of St. Louis safety standards.

  • All other services including personal training, massage therapy, assisted stretch and LesMills Virtual are available. These services will be provided in strict accordance with current City of St. Louis and CDC guidelines.
