Roughly 85% of New Year's resolutions never make it past the hypothetical phase, according to an unfinished study that was abandoned in early February. So this year, take care of your resolution before the New Year with today's deal: $39 for a 30-day trial membership to Boston Sports Clubs (a $225 value). Your membership is valid at any of the 25 locations in Boston, Greater Boston, and Rhode Island. Each club offers different amenities such as pools, saunas, basketball courts (also great for turtle races), juice bars, and babysitting services so explore your options before heading out.

Integrated Touch & Bodywork's skilled and licensed technicians deftly remove unwanted hair from nether regions, keeping areas bare for swimsuit season. Delicate hands daub targeted areas with soy wax, which locks on to the follicle fillers and enables quick removal of the hair all the way down to the roots. Lasting approximately 45–60 minutes, the process leaves a parcel of smooth skin that can remain sleek up to four weeks, easily enough time to infiltrate the secret mannequin cabal.
Offering a wide range of skincare and waxing services for men and women, Jolie Laide owner Jillian Brice and her skilled staff streamline skinsuits like a fleet of human Zambonis. Clients can choose to gloss over their lifemobile components with a 45-minute back purifying ($35), 20-minute eye treatment ($15), 45-minute skin therapy session ($75), and more. You can also apply your Groupon toward more pronounced pampering such as an aromatherapy saltscrub ($120) or an enzymatic mudwrap ($135). Being cocooned in super-mud (known in the biz as "beauty filth") also gives you more time to appreciate Jolie Laide's inviting atmosphere, spacious facilities, gentle pastel colors, and touches of retro décor.
