RXchips announces a new CrossFit product that helps you count rounds during a workout (WOD).
Redondo Beach, CA. — July 18, 2013 — RXchips today announced the first ceramic chip designed to count CrossFit rounds during a workout (WOD) and keep track of personal records (PRs).
The RXchip is 1.5” in diameter and comes in blue, red and yellow. RXchips are sold as a set of 15 or 30 to individual CrossFit athletes. The chips are designed with bright colors to stand out on a dark gym floor. The unique part about the RXchip is that it’s blank on one side. This blank side works as a mini journal or mini white board. You can write with a permanent marker to track PRs or a dry erase marker for temporary use.
Many CrossFit athletes use different techniques/items to count their repetitions or complete rounds during a WOD. Pennies, plastic poker chips, paper and pen, chalk markings on the rubber mats, dry eraser board and marker, etc… RXchips is the to solution to these counting techniques. Using RXchips eliminates the mess of using chalk on the gym floor and saves time compared to writing each round on a piece of paper. We find most people use chalk since it’s readily available at gyms, but gym owners are stuck with having to clean the messy chalk marks.
RXchips function in several ways. During a WOD they are moved or stacked to count rounds. Before or after a WOD they are used to write on. Some gym owners have shown interest in awarding their CrossFit members with these chips; for example: a chip could be awarded to someone that reaches a goal or RXs a WOD for the first time. The trainer could then write the WOD and time on the chip, sign it and award the chip to the member.
Founded in May 2013, RXchips is an idea that CrossFit Redondo Trainer Joe Persichina and his brother Mike came up with when they designed a custom chip for CrossFit Redondo. Since then the RXchip was created. The first gyms to use RXchips are, CrossFit Redondo (California) and CrossFit Reykjavík (Iceland).
