Did you know that there's a way to put your body through a (mild) workout without actually heading to the gym? Simply go to a sauna.
How does it work?
Saunas are typically heated to high temperatures (usually, 158 to 212°F), which does two things to your body: 1) It creates an environment that induces sweating, which is how your body eliminates toxins, and 2) It gives your heart a workout by dilating your capillaries and improving your blood flow.
Plus, saunas have been found to help with a number of health issues, including: chronic fatigue, congestive heart failure, mild depression, and Rheumatoid arthritis.
So, what are you waiting for? Here's a list of my top five favorite saunas in Manhattan.
