What Are Mitt Drills?

Mitt Drills center around real punch combos that your Trainer will build on progressively as you box to the beat. It’s the next best thing to having a Trainer in the room with you. Because, with mitt drills, it feels like they’re really there in your living room calling out drills as you throw punch after punch. This kind of student-to-trainer interaction is brand new to the VR fitness space and we’re excited to keep exploring how these classes elevate your at-home workout experience. 

How Does It Work?

In these workouts, we've programmed the lights and music to sync with your trainer’s instructions. All you have to do is listen to their cues, follow your trainer, and get lost in the music. After your workout is complete, you can view your force, timing, and accuracy metrics in the Litesport app. By tracking your progress and pushing for that personal best, you can get stronger with every class. 

  • Increase the difficulty: Mitt Drills range from beginner to advanced, with options for every athlete.
  • What to choose: Short on time? No worries, we’ve got options ranging from a quick 5-minute sweat session to 15-minute burners. Mitt Drills are perfect for squeezing a workout into your busy schedule. 
  • Best-in-class trainers: Our trainers have years of fitness experience and come from a variety of backgrounds including boxing, careers as professional athletes, and dancing. With these pros, you can get some of the best total body fitness instruction leaving you more agile, stronger, and confident. Instead of a lonely boxing match with a stationary sandbag, our professional trainers are right there in your room calling out instructions and encouragement as you line up your punches with their mitts.
  • How to play: Choose a 5-minute Mitt Drill workout for a quick pick-me-up or add Mitt Drills to a Litesport Playlist for a longer workout. 

Train Your Reaction Time

Boxing is all about quickly and effectively responding to the movement of your opponent. That’s why reaction training (through exercises like Mitt Drills) is just as important as all other aspects of boxing training. Training quick reflexes also strengthens your mind-body connection, creating better alignment between you, your body, and your environment. 

Pad work or pad training is an incredibly common method of reaction training in any boxing gym. And Litesport Mitt Drills is the VR equivalent of pad work. It helps train your reaction time on a moving target, while also giving you the chance to practice both offensive and defensive moves in rapid succession. But instead of needing to recruit a partner, you’ve got a built-in trainer right there in your living room.
