Each class is accessible to a wide range of participants, with easy to follow choreography, low impact steps, and moderate steady-state aerobic intensity that can be taken up or down a notch based on each individual's ability. It is the perfect class for those who are unfit or new to exercise, and is ideal for those who work out regularly as everyone needs one or more days of moderate aerobic activity in their weekly regimens. It is social, yet doesn't require a partner, and doesn't depend on any special dance background or ability. In short, Country Heat Live classes are high on energy, low on impact, and easy for anyone to follow along.
