One look at Liteboxer lets you know that we’re not just another heavy bag. We’re an at-home sports experience for all fighters and fitness enthusiasts.
The goal is to get more than just a great workout — although we know you’re here to sweat. It’s about creating a convenient, high-energy experience that ends with sweaty smiles and the confidence to march (and punch!) to your own beat.
So how does Liteboxer provide all of that? By utilizing lights, music, and tempo to power your workout and maximize your performance. The result is an experience that mimics the physicality, rhythm, and emotion of sparring in a ring with a partner, but from the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Here’s a breakdown of all the elements of your Liteboxer experience that come together to make you a stronger and smarter fighter, one jab-cross at a time.
Liteboxer On-Demand Workouts
The Liteboxer app runs the entire Liteboxer experience. You can download the Liteboxer app on both iOS and Android. After downloading and creating an account, establish Bluetooth connectivity between Liteboxer and your Liteboxer app using your own tablet or phone.
On the Liteboxer app with a Liteboxer Membership, you’ll get access to new daily content, unlimited on-demand workouts, top-charting music, best-in-class trainers, and more.

The green LED lights guide the way to where most of the action takes place on your Liteboxer: the Smart Shield. The Liteboxer Smart Shield contains six targets with force sensors and over 200 LED lights to detect and track your every move.
As the music begins, our Rhythm Technology syncs each light to the beat. Then, the LED runway lights originating from the shield's center tell you where and when to punch.
Think of your Smart Shield as your sparring partner. The top three targets are swings to the head while the bottom three are body shots. No matter where you’re punching, you’ll know you’ve made an accurate hit when the lights turn green.
For every hit, our force sensors are tracking your accuracy, punch streak, and force - a combination of how well you can keep up and how much power you pack in your punch. These results are stored in your profile in the Liteboxer app, so we can measure, guide, and build the best workout possible.
We collect and report your results daily so that you can track your progress, set goals, and try and beat your best score. Share your score with a friend to see who’s the king or queen of the ring!
LED runway lights originate from the shield’s center and travel towards one of the six targets. When the lights reach the center of the target, that’s your cue to punch. That light is your guide! You want to follow the light, track the light, and punch the light.
We also offer classes at different difficulty levels for every fighter. What separates the difficulty are the runway lights. In Beginner mode, the runway lights travel at a certain speed depending on the song that’s playing, whereas in Advanced mode, the runway lights in the same song travel at a higher frequency to increase difficulty.
During Trainer Classes, your Smart Shield is sometimes used to prompt you to throw an uppercut. To throw an uppercut punch, shift your weight into your front foot and bend into a slight squat as you drive your lead arm up to punch the hyper-absorbent Uppercut Pad located right below your Smart Shield.
Uppercut punches expand your muscle engagement as you rotate your hips, pivot your back heel, and drive your fists upward to strike the lower shield. This keeps things interesting as you switch up your punches throughout the class, building extra power and breaking a serious sweat.
You can raise or lower the Liteboxer shield to personalize your experience such as:
- Getting the most ergonomic height for your body to minimize strain through repeated use
- Mimicking different sparring partner heights
- Allowing other family members or friends to experience Liteboxer by adjusting the height to suit their needs
To get started, we recommend lining up the center of the shield to your shoulder height, but play around with the height to find what works best for you.
To adjust, loosen the height adjustment handle on the back of the pole with one hand while using the other hand to grasp onto the handle located on the back of the shield. Raise or lower the shield carefully, keeping your grip on the shield's handle. Once set to the desired height, tighten the handle before removing your hands.
After setting up your Liteboxer app and Membership keep your own phone or tablet on the Tablet shelf below the Uppercut Pad. This position ensures a stable Bluetooth connection between Liteboxer and your device.
When you’re in the middle of a fight your eyes are on Liteboxer’s Smart Shield. But your personal tablet or phone positioned on your Tablet Shelf is there to shout out cues from your trainer and to help you quickly check on your score or any device notifications. With the Liteboxer app, your phone or tablet on the Tablet Shelf acts as a trainer who’s always in your corner.
You’re a fighter and Liteboxer's platform is your arena. The advanced design allows for your body weight to be the counterforce to your punches so there’s no need to weigh things down with sand or water. The rigid steel frame allows you to punch as hard and as often as you can.
Your Liteboxer platform has a footprint of 37.6” x 55.5”. To accommodate any movement from the shield and your limbs during a heavy workout we recommend leaving 12" of clearance in the front and on the sides of the platform.
For fighters over 6'1" we recommend purchasing our platform extender to give you a little more room to move during your workout. This adds 18" to the length of the platform, so you’ll need to dedicate a bit more floor space.
Many of our trainer-led workouts will incorporate off-platform activities, such as strength training or yoga. For off-platform workouts, it helps to have extra floor space near the platform so that the trainer is still visible to you on your phone or tablet.
Before you can box with Liteboxer, you need to glove up! Gloves protect your knuckles and wrists from the impact of your punches. Plus, they give extra weight to your hits and help you channel your inner fighter.
Our Liteboxer gloves come in two sizes: small and large. To determine the correct fit for your Liteboxer gloves, measure from the base of the palm to the top of the index finger.
- Small: Less than 8 inches or 20cm
- Large: Greater than 8 inches or 20cm
You get access to a pair of gloves as part of your Liteboxer purchase, but you can always buy more for friends and family to use.
Boxing wraps also play a major role in protecting your wrists and knuckles from the impact of the punch, without adding too much extra bulk. They’re also much easier to clean than your gloves, helping to keep everything smelling (somewhat) fresh.

- 2 handles
- 2 door stoppers
- 2 ankle wraps
