Make a solemn fitness vow that's legal with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a one-month membership at either Diesel Fitness in uptown Dallas or at Fitness Evolution in Denton (a $75 value). As a special bonus, you'll keep the monthly rate if you decide to join either gym after the one month offered with this deal. You'll also get $100 off the $199 initiation fee.
