I've been familiar with Zuka and BodyRock for a few years now and have tried a few times to follow the weekly routines, but have failed. I'm giving it a go once again. I'm not too far from my weight goal (15lbs) but my fitness level is not where I want it to be. I'm hoping that having a team to communicate with (and answer to) will help me keep on the ball. <BR> Looking forward to this year and all the new challenges it will bring.
