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.

Certified instructor description:
An innovative and effective workout that integrates gliding discs into nearly every exercise. The aerobic section uses the discs to provide low-impact, fat-burning fun. The toning segment uses the discs to boost resistance and increase range of motion (e.g. a "walking push-up" where you're moving the discs as you're raising your body). The fast-paced cardio moves are surprisingly diverse. They range from simple slides and lunges to burpees and mountain climbers. The body-sculpting exercises are also varied. They include planks, cross-overs and seated oblique work (that often incorporate a core-strengthening or balance element). Requires a loop-style band and gliding discs (paper plates will work). ©2011.
