Of course, breaking a sweat at the gym always works, but here’s the better news: You can use your GreatLIFE membership to warm up without actually exercising.

And there’s no better time to try it than our upcoming multiple days of frigid weather.

Escape float

Literally shut away the wintery world with a float session at Escape Float Spa.

Rest and unwind with a 60-minute float at 3400 W. 49th St., where GreatLIFE members receive up to 20 percent off memberships.

Sauna session

So, it actually is 3 degrees. Or below. That’s where 3 Degrees sauna business and GreatLIFE can help.

Members receive discounts to the sauna business, which has a location at 57th Street and Louise Avenue and another one opening soon at 26th Street and Sycamore Avenue.

The 40-minute session gently raises your body temperature by 3 degrees, leaving you relaxed, detoxified and with amazing health benefits.

Tan time

Even if you’re nowhere close to a sunny beach, Year Round Brown can at least make you forget it when you look in the mirror.

GreatLIFE members receive unlimited sessions for $11.95 per month at this full-scale tanning salon, which includes spray tanning.

Flock here

Here’s the most clever way yet for GreatLIFE members to warm up. Head over to the Butterfly House & Aquarium, where the tropical conservatory is kept at a balmy 80 degrees.

Bring something to read or bring along the kids and forget about the cold temps outside as 800 free-flying butterflies surround you.

GreatLIFE members receive half-price admission Tuesdays and a 25 percent discount any other weekday. Want repeat trips? Annual memberships are 25 percent off for GreatLIFE members, too.
