Leslie Sansone's 5K with a Twist
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: 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.

Certified instructor description:
An in-home walking workout that features two-minute, higher-intensity “power bursts.” The bursts include moves like jogging, kicking and skipping — higher-impact versions of the basic steps you already know. The bursts are designed to maximize fat burning effectiveness while helping to simulate the feel of an actual 5K outdoor race (about 3.1 miles). Leslie also boosts the intensity of her usual low-impact walking steps by using faster music and incorporating lots of arm motions. Throughout the workout, you'll be motivated by Leslie's chatty commentary and an on-screen countdown timer. ©2009.
