Master Trainer who can motivate you through your toughest moments in the ring.
With 20+ years in the ring, as well as on the pitch, this boxer turned pro soccer athlete is here to WIN. That’s why Anthony is our Lead Trainer and Director of Talent. He knows how to turn a workout into a transformation of mental and physical growth. With his unique combination of strength, agility, and mindfulness he’ll quickly become your biggest motivator as he helps inspire you to give it your all in the ring.
Training style: Expect a focus on boxing foundation as well as a journey to self-discovery. With Anthony, you aren’t just learning how to box, you’re focusing on your personal growth.
Our favorite class with Anthony: Try one of Anthony’s FOCUS classes on 3 Punch Combos or Speed. He does a great job of walking you through proper boxing techniques while keeping you on your toes (literally!).
High-energy dancing pro with a can-do attitude and dance moves that’ll leave you in a better mood with every workout.
Lissa is a professional dancer, entrepreneur, and fitness instructor with 7+ years of fitness training experience. As a dancer, Lissa brings her own special rhythm and energy to each Litesport workout, encouraging you to have fun and not take yourself too seriously as you punch your way towards your fitness goals.
Training style: Lissa’s training style is powerful, energetic, soulful, and motivational. With her big energy and encouraging instruction, it’ll be easier than you might expect to give it your all in Lissa’s classes and have fun in the process.
Our favorite class with Lissa: We love time traveling with Lissa in her 30 Min Trainer Led 90’s Edition workout. You’ll be finding the beat and punching it out to 90s hip hop tracks including “No Diggity” by Blackstreet and “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan. You might be dancing as much as you’re boxing, but either way, you’ll be sweating through some full-body fitness.
Competitive triathlete focused on building your speed, agility, and mental edge.
As a former baseball player and current running coach Max knows how to get you working hard and having fun in the ring. Yes, his classes are going to be hard, but he promises that they’ll never be discouraging or negative. He strives to create an environment where everyone can find success and celebrate their wins. He’s here to make you smile, make you sweat, and build up that boxer’s grit and determination.
Training style: Max's classes are full of high energy, a positive attitude, and Bieber fever. In his own words, Max describes his training style as “very straightforward with a major emphasis on PMA— Positive Mental Attitude.”
- Strength and form-focused
Our favorite class with Max: It’s no secret that Max loves a good Bieber ballad, which is why we recommend Max’s 4 Song Sparring Session Justin Bieber edition. We also recommend pressing play on his 4 Song Sparring Session Pop Rock Battle and 3 Song Sparring Session Dance Beginner because they’re in the top five most played workouts of 2021.
MMA and Kickboxing fighter with a lifelong passion for sharing the grit, edge, and confidence boxing gave him growing up.
With 8+ years of fitness training experience and a background in Muay Thai, wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu, Krav-Maga, and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) we’re over here wondering if there’s anything that GW can’t do. For GW, boxing began as a means of self-defense, protecting himself from bullying as a kid. Since then, that practice has turned into a lifelong passion as he’s moved from student to competitor to teacher.
Training style: With an extensive background in multiple forms of martial arts, expect a unique blend of MMA-inspired strength training and boxing in GW’s classes. You’re going to work hard and sweat a lot because GW is here to push you harder than you’ve ever been pushed before.
- Easy to follow
Our favorite class with GW: Our most popular Trainer Class in 2021 was GW’s 15 min Hip Hop Beginner workout. And for good reason. This class gives a great overview of the six signature punches while taking you through shadowboxing, endurance exercises, core work, and boxing drills.
Brooklynette dancer and Trainer who’s ready to share her confidence and energy, one class at a time.
Jill is a Brooklynette dancer for the NBA Brooklyn Nets team with 4+ years of boxing and personal training experience. Between dancing and personal training, Jill knows how to pump up the energy while pushing you to build both strength and endurance. In her classes, Jill wants you to find your confidence and get lost in the music every single time.
Training style: Jill’s energy encourages you to light up the ring with a beat-driven boxing experience that maximizes your performance and boosts your confidence. She wants you to be able to look in the mirror at the end of your workout and feel amazing about your effort and hard work.
Our favorite class with Jill: According to Jill, you should leave any of her Trainer Classes or Sparring Sessions feeling like “a jillion bucks”, But, we especially recommend checking out her Build + Restore Glutes + Abs classes. As a dancing pro, Jill knows how to target those muscles in a way that’ll make you feel extra sore the next day.
Cheerleading alum who’s ready to lead you through your next workout with a positive attitude and upbeat teaching style.
This Florida native turned New Yorker has 6+ years of boxing and training experience, not to mention 10 years of competitive cheerleading. Even though she didn’t grow up boxing, Aliyah is no stranger to challenging sports. She spent 10 years in competitive cheerleading and has experience dancing, playing volleyball, and weightlifting. Her hard work ethic, stamina, and fitness background make her the perfect Trainer for your next workout.
Training style: Expect to have fun as you work out with Aliyah! Throughout class, she’ll encourage you to keep moving and punching with her infectious positivity, hilarious honesty, and motivating instruction. And simple and effective is the name of her game. Aliyah knows how to structure a successful workout that kicks your butt but leaves you feeling great at the same time. After all, she wants you to get in a good workout, but she knows that the real goal is to have fun and feel good about yourself in the process.
- Simple and effective
Our favorite class with Aliyah: We love celebrating the queens of hip hop with Aliyah in her 3 Song Mitt Drill Hip Hop Queens workout! In this class, Aliyah leads you through 3 rounds of boxing and weaving and non-stop combos as GloRilla, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and Doechii take charge of the beat. You’ll use all 6 targets on the Liteshield in this class as you get those arms working and muscles pumping. It’s a great way to have fun, get in a quick sweat, and build your boxing skillset.
