Amy Bento's In the Ring
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: Moderate
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 non-stop kickboxing challenge that sometimes uses a medicine ball or dumbbell to maximize effectiveness. It's fast-paced and fun with exceptionally well-structured “kickbox choreography” (i.e. your upper and lower body are working together in true aerobic-style combinations). The upper-body moves range from punches and blocks to “speed bags” and “elbow smashes.” The complementary lower-body exercises include jump kicks, crescent kicks and “machine gun kicks.” Short medicine ball segments are inserted between the kickbox intervals. Moving the ball high-to-low across your body increases fat-burning as it engages your core muscles (and adds variety). Requires a 5 to 10 lb. medicine ball or a dumbbell. ©2008.
