The at-home fitness company’s virtual reality offering will enable a first-of-its-kind workout that takes immersive fitness to a whole new level, without ever leaving home.
(BOSTON, MA) — Liteboxer–the at-home fitness company that combines patented hardware, game dynamics, hit music, and expert training to create the world’s most immersive workouts–today announced its entrance into the metaverse with Liteboxer VR. The first of its kind VR fitness experience will be available on the Meta Quest, featuring real in-app expert trainers with new workouts daily. Liteboxer VR will also offer motivation-based competition and an extensive music library in partnership with Universal Music Group, bringing music that ranges from Lady Gaga to YG into the virtual ring.
The First VR Experience Created by Fitness Experts
Unlike other VR fitness offerings, Liteboxer VR is built to be fitness-first and champion a sports-at-home experience. Liteboxer VR is the first fitness VR offering to provide real trainer-led workouts that cross the boundary of motivation into actual coaching and interaction. Instead of an exergaming video game, Liteboxer VR is a full workout experience that is built to fit into a gaming format, not the other way around.
Amp Up the Adrenaline with Head-to-Head Competition
Liteboxer VR will feature leaderboards and the ability to compete in direct challenges with friends, family or fellow Liteboxers around the world, making every workout feel like the main event. Challenging other users is as simple as posting a great score and then inviting another user to see if they can beat it. A notification will alert the fellow Liteboxer VR user that they’re invited to duke it out within the metaverse. Users can keep track of their performance with in-app leaderboards and personal stats, and also share their victories across social media with an in-app option to publish results.
eSports With All the Sweat, but No Sweaty Controller
Using its precise hand-tracking software–a first for fitness virtual reality–Liteboxer VR offers a controllerless experience, enabling users to square off in challenges with or without the additional hardware. As the only Meta Quest fitness app that offers a controller-free workout, Liteboxer is launching the next generation of VR fitness today, equipping its users to enjoy an intense workout experience without the need to grip bulky hardware.
Craft a Playlist Suitable for Champions
Liteboxer VR’s vast music library will be refreshed daily, touting motivational Punch Tracks that push users to land blows to choreographed hit music. Contrasting its fitness app predecessors, Liteboxer VR has an added layer of curation, enabling its users to personalize a playlist song-by-song that gets their fists moving and heart pumping. Users who want to challenge their friends to the latest track by Billie Eilish or The Weekend, or throw it back with a song by Bon Jovi, can simply select the song, send a challenge, then kick off the competition. For those who want a quick workout between meetings or before starting their day, Liteboxer VR offers quick play tracks for a one-off workout session that lasts as long as the user needs it to before throwing in the towel.
“We’re thrilled to bring Liteboxer VR to market, blazing a trail for the VR fitness revolution and expanding access to first-class fitness that looks to the next wave of fit-tech innovation,” said Jeff Morin, CEO and Co-founder of Liteboxer. “The dawn of the metaverse points to a demand for a deeper sense of connectivity. Virtual reality workouts connect people in a way that’s more meaningful than a 2D screen on a tablet, phone or computer. With just a VR headset and your will to win, anyone can now workout anywhere in the world with the best trainers, tracks and fitness technology.”
Liteboxer VR will be available for purchase by consumers in the Meta Quest Store beginning on March 3rd, 2022, enabling users to step into the ring for a full sensory fitness experience that evokes an emotional response formerly unique to sports. Regularly priced at $19.99/month for first-time Liteboxers, Liteboxer VR will be free for those who already own Liteboxer’s innovative Floor Stand or Wall Mount models and subscribe to Liteboxer’s membership program.
