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.

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.

Certified instructor description:
A solid step program with interesting moves, excellent cuing and lots of variety (no endless repetition). These innovative combos are designed to burn fat as they subtly challenge your mind and body. It's a fun workout -- you get smooth transitions with choreography that always matches the music (taught add-on-style, using classic eight-count patterns). The progressions build in both intensity and complexity. The first combo uses the simplest moves; the last features fast footwork and lots of around, on and off-step sequences (but very few spins or back-to-the-camera motions). ©2009.
