There’s a subscription element, naturally, to this Peloton-of-boxing setup, that offers trainer-led workouts as well as a prolonged training program. This is fronted by Leyon Azubuike, a former US heavyweight, kick-boxer Eliza Shirazi and fitness trainer Emily Collins. If you’re in a hurry, quick workouts can help you squeeze some bag time into your day, while challenges let you compete against your peers.
Unfortunately, as with its rivals, there’s little accessible or affordable about Liteboxer’s business model, aimed squarely at those with buckets of disposable cash. The Liteboxer device itself will set you back $1,495.00, plus a monthly subscription of $29 a month (after your three-month trial expires). Then again, that figure is about the same you’d pay for a year’s worth of weekly boxing classes at a US gym. So if you’re serious about fitness, and feel like you’d use it more than once a week, it probably pays off.
Liteboxer is available to pre-order in the US right now with shipping expected to begin in August.
