Releasing sweat is an effective way to lower body temperature, as is taking a cold shower or swallowing an igloo. Keep your physique regular with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 30-day unlimited membership package at Apex Mixed Martial Arts (a $124 value), which includes:

Under the well-toned guidance of pro MMA award-winner and co-owner Joey "Boom Boom" Rivera, Apex Mixed Martial Arts buffs up bodies with a facility, staff, and classes aimed at advancing students in mixed martial arts. Both aspiring fighters and pacifists looking for a muscle-blasting workout are welcome to strengthen limbs, accelerate heartbeats, and rehearse scary faces in Apex's 5,500-square-foot training space. Cardio, weights, and locker rooms bolster the well-rounded Herculean haven, where massage and chiropractic offices tame, realign, and sing lullabies to post-cooldown bods. Clients make use of more than 1,600 square feet of mats for sparring and toning tendon slabs, and two fighting cages, punching bags, and a 20-square-foot boxing ring give athletes a feel for the fight or a place to practice dramatically spitting out water.
During a 45-minute private training session, Rivera—the 170-pound champion of the World Fighting Federation and Cage Fury Fighting Championships—shares secrets of professional fitness and his favorite crochet techniques. Students can use skills honed in their training session to increase performance in classes in striking, MMA, grappling, or kids' MMA.
