Amy Bento's Advanced Step Challenge 4
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:
A high-energy, fun-to-do step workout with an endless variety of interesting combinations. The fat-burning is non-stop. Amy Bento never breaks the intensity or rhythm by slowing down to “teach” a pattern. Instead, she just keeps layering in new combinations and options (fortunately, her excellent form, cue-ahead instruction — and the 15-minute pre-workout tutorial — make it all doable). The transitions are super-smooth; your feet always seem to end up in the right place for the next combo. The moves are athletic and complex, but never “dancy.” They include repeaters, glides, spins and jumps that often use the entire bench (e.g up, over, around and behind). ©2010.
