Tracie Long's Focus: Power Up
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.
Toning Emphasis: Total Body
Upper body: Arms, chest and back.
Lower Body: Legs, thighs, hips and buttocks.
Abs: Abdominals (stomach), core and sometimes lower back.
Total body: Tones all three of the above muscle groups.

Certified instructor description:
A wide variety of moves in a compact, very challenging program. Similar in intensity to the early “The Firm” step workouts, it’s a diverse blend of aerobics and toning (Tracie was an original Firm Master instructor). The first section burns calories with powerful, high-impact jumps (up on the step, and then off). The second segment intermixes step aerobics with wide-ranging, off-step movements. The last section features a medley of equally-intense body-sculpting exercises (e.g. on-step, “plyometric push-ups” are tough!). Straight-forward, one-on-one cuing. ©2010.
