WELLNESS @ 4240:

WORK OUT AT THE BJC WELLAWARE CENTER

We have negotiated a novel, experimental benefit: completely free off-peak health club access for ALL CIC clients. From 8am to 4pm, Monday-Friday, you have free access to the BJC WellAware Center, located at 600 S. Taylor Ave, just a few blocks down Forest Park. 

BJC's’ regular monthly membership costs +$50, and CIC has also negotiated a group rate for all CIC clients providing all-hours access: $36/month (All-Inclusive). This all-hours membership is month-to-month (no annual contract!), has no joining or termination fees, and includes network access to all equipment AND classes. Classes! If you have a group health plan, you should also check it because it may subsidize this price down further.

To get started, swing by our concierge desk to pick up a fitness application form. Bring it filled out to the BJC fitness facility and you're in.

relax with a massage

Sign up for a massage with our resident massage therapist Sarina Prouty! There are appointments available from 10:30 to 3:30 in the Big George Brock conference room every Wednesday. Her rate is $32.50 for half an hour, or $65 for a full hour, but be sure to stop by the CIC concierge desk to pick up a coupon for $10 off your first massage. Sign up for your massage on Roomzilla and let the tension float away.

FRESHEN UP BEFORE GETTING BACK TO WORK

The 4240 building has three locked shower rooms on the first floor south hallway, and they now include a towel service! See security at the first floor desk to borrow a key and return it when you are done.

I BIKED TO WORK TODAY! WHERE CAN I PARK MY BIKE FOR THE DAY?

We have hanging bike racks in the back of the mail room, as well as a pump, chain lube, and other tools. You can also find outdoor bike racks by the east & west building entrances.

Is there anywhere i can work in another city?

CIC has spaces in Cambridge, Boston, and Rotterdam, and has plans to expand! Your existing card is your CIC Passport and will give you access to all of our spaces. Go to the location, scan your card, and head to the main reception desk, where they will point you to the best areas to work. You are also welcome to reserve conference rooms and phone booths in any CIC location using our Roomzilla sites. Over time, CIC expects to be adding locations, and when we do, you’ll be the first to know!

We've also joined a growing global network called StartUp Federation which gives you the option to work in a ton of other cities. Just submit this form 48 hours before you visit the space. In addition, if you participate in the Impact Hub Boston community (available to you for free as a CIC client, with a sign-up process), you have limited access to the 70+ Impact Hubs all over the world

I'M NURSING. IS THERE A SPACE AT CIC THAT I CAN USE?

Yes! One of our phone booths, Casa Loma, is also our Mother's Room. The Mother's Room offers soft light, comfortable seating, private fridge, curtains, and a lockable door. Book time in the Mother's Room on Roomzilla. 

There is also a nursing room on the first floor in one of the locked shower rooms. Pick up a key from the security desk anytime!

I LOVE CIC AND ITS STAFF. CAN I REFLECT THIS BY PUTTING CLOTH ON MY BODY?

That was a weird way to ask about CIC swag, but it does indeed exist! We've created a Zazzle shop and priced the items as low as possible. If you've ever wanted to rep CIC, now you can!
