Using the Sauna &/or Steam room at my gym is a reward and motivation for working out. It helps your skin, eases you exercised muscles and helps get the nasty toxins out!
If you have never tried the steam room or sauna give it a go. Take some ice cold water in there to drink and maybe add few drops of essential oil to the steam outlet ie orange, grapefruit to make your time in there even more rewarding.

Our health club has a very nice sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi facility (for both men and women, and also a very large public jacuzzi). I really, really like the large jacuzzi and reward myself after a good work out with a long relaxing soak in the jacuzzi. It makes me look forward to workouts.
Drinking more water to hydrate and flush your system
My health club has a steam room and sauna. I will use both to relax and sweat, but also to hydrate my body inside and out. The heat makes you drink lots of water and cleans the pores. I also feel like I am on a mini vacation 198
