Full Backcover Description
Advanced Step Challenge is true to its title — yes it’s the step video you’ve always wanted but haven’t seen before. Amy Bento leads you through four different challenging routines and includes a bonus section of “Power-ups” for that extra fat-burn. “Advanced Step is step aerobics with a triple shot of espresso, only more addicting.”
Amy Bento's Advanced Step Challenge
Beginner: Just starting out, very overweight or haven't exercised in over six months.
Intermediate: Active in sports, dance or any regular exercise (2 to 3 times per week).
Advanced: Very active in sports or consistently work out four or more times per week.
Aerobics Impact: Higher
Lower Impact: Both feet never leave the ground at the same time. This minimizes stress on your knees.
Higher Impact: Includes movements like jumps, hops and skips. Very high-impact is called plyometrics.
Mixed Impact: This alternates or combines the above styles.
Aerobics Choreography: Complex
Basic: The easiest to follow. It ranges from simple walking-style marches to sports and athletic movements.
Complex: More intricate combinations and patterns. They're ideal for people who like to dance.
Moderate: More interesting than Basic, less dancy than Complex.

Certified instructor description:
Non-stop and super-challenging with lots of directional changes. This workout kicks off at maximum speed and just never slows down (no intensity-busting “break downs” or “add ons”). Instead, it starts with the complete combo and keeps repeating. Even if you miss an early move — and you probably will — you'll know exactly what to expect the next time (or you can use Amy's demo section to preview the more complex sequences). The choreography features lots of turns, leaps and backwards steps (e.g. “crazy shuffle,” “scoop around,” “about face”). It ends with a 7-minute bonus segment of ultra-advanced plyometric drills. High-energy instructor and very driving music. ©2006.
