The BJC WellAware Center has been helping residents of the Central West End and Forest Park Southeast look well, and feel their best since 1998. The 10,000 square foot facility provides more than a workout, because its mission is to provide a fitness experience.
What sets the BJC WellAware Center apart from other area fitness centers is the level of service and qualifications of its fitness professionals. The centers team of exercise specialists hold degrees in exercise science and are certified by either the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Strength and Conditioning Association, or the American Council on Exercise. All are industry leaders in health and fitness education.
New group fitness classes in 2011, are designed to get members motivated. Mommy Fit, taught by new mom and fitness pro Becky Morr, is a stroller exercise class designed to help new moms lose their baby weight. New moms are able to socialize with other new mothers, and since baby is part of the workout, bond with their new bundle of joy. A new mind-body class, “Flow in the Park”, combines tai chi, pilates, and yoga in a tranquil location at the bottom of Art Hill. Added to those are the popular kettlebell and Zumba classes which train and tone from head to toe.
The Center’s best kept secret is the membership price with no long-term commitment.
