Step 1: Choose a Litesport product

First things first, it’s time to choose your Litesport! And you’ve got a few options…

Litesport launched in 2019 with our original Litesport Floor Stand. Then in 2021, we added a more space-friendly option with the Litesport Wall Mount. And in the past year, we’ve branched into the metaverse with Litesport VR and made boxing more accessible with Litesport Go, an anywhere, anytime workout solution. 

Each option combines hardware, game dynamics, top-charting music, and expert training all into one high-intensity boxing workout. But they’re each unique in their own way, with different benefits and experiences

The right one for you depends on your interests, space limitations, and workout preferences. Here’s a breakdown of each one:

Litesport Go

Litesport Go is an on-the-go wearable fitness technology featuring two punch-tracking sensors that you strap to both wrists. They’re small enough to slip into a purse or beach bag and light enough to pack in your checked bag. This means that with Litesport Go you can work out just about anywhere! 

Litesport VR

With Litesport VR you can enter a virtual boxing ring for a full sensory workout without ever leaving your living room. It’s like having one of our world-class Trainers right in the room with you, guiding your every punch or calling out motivation as you slam battle ropes or rack up points on the speed bag

Floor Stand

The Litesport Floor Stand features a Liteshield with six targets, an uppercut pad, a tablet shelf, and a full platform. The Liteshield contains six targets with force sensors and over 200 LED lights to detect and track your every move for the ultimate at-home workout experience.

Wall Mount

The Litesport Wall Mount features the same LED force-detecting Liteshield, uppercut pad, and tablet shelf as the Floor Stand. But, unlike the Floor Stand, instead of a platform it’s wall mounted for a smaller footprint. This makes it easier to enjoy Litesport in smaller spaces where you might not have enough room for a larger platform. 


Step 2: Find a location for your Litesport

As you’re choosing the right Litesport for you, make sure you’re keeping space limitations in mind. Some of our Litesport products, like the Litesport Floor Stand, require a certain amount of space to fit in your home.

If you’re purchasing the Floor Stand there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The location you choose will need to have an electrical outlet within 4 feet, and ideally should be close to your wireless router. This is to ensure a stable connection when accessing in-app content. 
  • While the Floor Stand itself has a footprint of 37.6” x 55.5”, we recommend leaving 12" of clearance in the front and sides of the platform. This extra clearance will allow for any shift in location during your workout. 
  • If you purchased the platform extender, this adds 18" to the length of the platform, so you will need to dedicate a bit more space. 
  • Additionally, many of our Trainer workouts incorporate off-platform activities, such as calisthenics or yoga. Due to this, we recommend having a good amount of floor space so you can have the best experience. 

Here are the space requirements for all our Litesport products:

Litesport Product

Space Requirements

Litesport Go

None! Just a flat floor and enough room to throw some punches.

Litesport VR

You'll need a safe and unobstructed space measuring at least 6.5 feet by 6.5 feet

Standard Platform: 55.3" L x 37.5" W x 54”-64” H (adjustable range)

Step 3: Sign up for a Litesport membership

All Litesport products offer free access to a limited selection of workouts. But a Litesport membership takes your workout to the next level.  

Here are the membership options for each Litesport product:

With Premium, you unlock access to 500+ workouts, top-charting music, new content added daily, plus other Premium features. Not sure yet? We also offer a 7-day free trial of our Litesport VR premium membership. 

Litesport Go

With Litesport Go, there’s no reason not to get a Litesport membership. Because when you commit to an annual or 24-mo membership starting at $13.99 per month you’ll get your Litesport Go for free. But if you’re interested in month-to-month you also have the option for a monthly membership for $18.99 per month plus $100 for the Litesport Go Sensors. 

Included in your monthly, annual, or 24-month membership is an ever-growing library of over 800+ workout options from expert Trainer Classes to single-song Punch Tracks. All featuring some of the best top-charting music. Plus new content added daily! 

Floor Stand & Wall Mount

After purchasing your Litesport Floor Stand or Wall Mount, you’ll unlock 30 days of free access to a Litesport Membership. Giving you new daily content, unlimited on-demand workouts, best-in-class Trainers, and more. 

After your 30-day free trial is up, you still have access to a Litesport free account including 20 basic punch tracks, three Trainer classes, and three sparring sessions. However, you’ll miss out on unlimited top-charting music and best-in-class Trainer instruction so we recommend continuing your Litesport membership to get the most out of your Litesport experience.

Step 5: Download the Litesport app and create an account 

If you haven’t already, it’s time to download the Litesport app and get your account set up so you’re ready to start your first workout. Head to the App Store or Google Play Store on your device and search “Litesport”. 

Once downloaded, you can create a new profile by selecting “new user”. Once you create your profile, the app will guide you through a sequence of questions to set up your account. It’s super easy to follow and the app will give you step-by-step instructions so you’re ready to go. 

Step 6: Connect or pair your device to your Litesport

Now that you have the app and your Litesport, it’s time to connect or pair them together. Follow these simple steps depending on your product:

Litesport Floor Stand or Wall Mount

  1. Head to your device’s settings and make sure your Bluetooth is set to “on''.
  2. Allow for sharing and location services within your device’s settings.
  3. Log into the Litesport app and press the white Settings gear at the top right-hand corner of your screen and select “pair Litesport”.
  4. The app will display a target on your device in green, go ahead and hit that corresponding target on your Litesport Shield.
  5. You’re ready to go!

Litesport Go

  1. Head to your device’s settings and make sure your Bluetooth is set to “on''.
  2. Allow for sharing and location services within your device’s settings.
  3. Turn on your Litesport Go Sensors by short-pressing the triangle-shaped power button. A green LED light will begin flashing to let you know the sensor is powered on
  4. Log into the Litesport app and press the white Settings gear at the top right-hand corner of your screen and select “pair LB Go”.
  5. Follow the instructions on your app to pair the left and right sensors and slide them into the pocket of your wrist straps. A green flashing light on a sensor means Bluetooth is not connected. A blue flashing light means the sensor has successfully paired. If you see a red flashing light, the battery is low and may need charging.
  6. Check that the right and left sensors are on the correct wrists and that the sensor power button and wrist strap arrow are pointing down toward your hand. Use the flap on the wrist strap pocket to secure your sensors in place during your workout. You can tighten the straps using the velcro tab adjustment.
  7. You’re ready to go!

Litesport VR

If you’ve just purchased an Oculus VR headset, you can follow these instructions from Oculus to get your new headset up and running. If you already own an Oculus headset and you’ve downloaded the Litesport VR app then you’re ready to go! 

Step 7: Start your first workout

Now that you’re all set up and ready to go it’s time to start your first workout! We offer three different levels of difficulty for every fighter: Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced

No matter the level, all classes are going to push you to do your best and work your hardest. But if you’re new to Litesport or boxing in general, we recommend our beginner-level classes as a great place to start. Here are a few great options for your first workout:

After you get a handle on your first few beginner-level Trainer classes, try one of our Punch Tracks which allows you to pick your own music and box to the beat. You can select a single song or a few together to make a personal playlist. Choose easy, medium, or hard to get the right challenge for you. 

Step 8: Customize your experience

There are plenty of ways to personalize your workout experience with Litesport! Here are a few options to turn your workout up a notch:

  • Update your settings: For personalized content recommendations, take some time to answer the onboarding questions that pop up the first time you sign into the Litesport app. These optional questions help us recommend the best content for you by getting to know you, your goals, and your preferences. If you skipped them, you can head into your Settings at any time and select “Manage Recommendations”.
  • Start liking songs: The more you interact with the app and express interest in certain workouts, the better able we are to recommend content you might like. So start liking or favoriting workouts so we can provide you with personalized content recommendations. 
  • Build your first playlist: Our Playlist Builder feature lets you pick and choose the selection of workouts you want, put them in order, and press play to advance seamlessly from one to the next. It’s one of the easiest ways to build the workout you want, with all your favorite music, Trainers, and classes.

Step 9: Join the Litesport Facebook community
