Hostyle Conditioning on why Zumba sucks

Why I think Zumba Sucks…This title could also be ‘Why I think Elliptical Training Sucks” To be really honest I don’t think it sucks…well not for the first 30 – 60 days anyway if you are very, very out of shape physically and lack the mental capacity to push your body very hard.
