The goal is to improve all elements of fitness, flexibility, muscular strength, and cardiovascular fitness. It is usually performed to music in a group setting and led by an instructor.

With the goal of preventing illness and promoting physical fitness, participants perform various routines comprising a number of different dance-like exercises. Formal aerobics classes are divided into different levels of intensity and complexity. Aerobics classes may allow participants to select their level of participation according to their fitness level.
