The Axon staff is a truly unique piece of workout equipment. People who frequent the gym are likely familiar with a wide array of fitness gear: from dumb bells to bench presses to a whole bunch of other things that one would have to go to the gym to know the names of. The Axon staff isn't like any of those, though; the app-connected stick guides users through workouts by measuring the forces applied to it during suggested exercises.

The staff has LEDs that run down its sides, and these lights turn on in accordance with the amount of pressure being applied to the stick. The precise numbers come through on AxonFit mobile app, but those LEDs provide immediate feedback for the user mid-workout.
