Fit at Any Age for Active Older Adults

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: Lower
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: Basic
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.

Upper body: Arms, chest and back.

Certified instructor description:
Created and led by a “baby boomer,” it's an easy-to-follow series of back-to-the-basics exercises (no fancy Latin choreography, no heavy-bass music). But it is effective — the aerobics will definitely burn fat; the toning will definitely sculpt your body. Sue Grant is joined by two other boomers; each one demonstrating the moves at a different level (e.g. you can choose a basic “plank on the knees” or challenge yourself with a “hip rotation plank”). The always-low-impact cardio features familiar favorites like grapevines, kicks, step-touches and Charlestons. The toning includes classics like squats, bicep curls and push-ups. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2008.
