Massage guns are everywhere these days—even Justin Bieber uses one—but these high-tech devices are more than just a fad: They’re an awesome way to relieve post-workout stiffness and give sore muscles a much-needed boost after an intense exercise session.
It’s basically like a foam roller, but more rejuvenating because these nifty little handheld devices use vibration and percussion to assist in muscle recovery. Although they look like they’re from the future, they’re pretty easy to operate, and right now, you can snag not one, but three neat devices from Theragun—one of the most respected makers of massage guns in the biz—for up to $150 off.
The three massage guns on sale right now are all crowd-pleasers, but our favorite is definitely the G3, which comes with four foam attachments and a travel case. Ergonomically designed for comfort, the G3 really packs on the intensity. It was too much for some people who used it in our labs (again, this massage gun really brings it vis-à-vis power) BUT our tester thought it would be perfect for serious athletes in search of relief after a grueling workout or particularly long run.
The G3 usually retails for $399, but right now you can get it for $349, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this particular device. The G3PRO and liv are also on sale and come with the same distinctive triangular-shaped handle that makes Theragun’s units so uniquely easy to hold onto and control.
Both the G3PRO (on sale for $449 instead of its typical $599) and the liv ($199, marked down from $249) have their own benefits, however. With the former, you’ll be getting more attachments—so instead of the four that come with the G3, you’ll be getting six—and you can fully adjust each arm for all-over body reach. The liv, meanwhile—Theragun’s smaller, sleeker and most affordable device—offers up just two foam attachments and a travel pouch but could be the perfect pick if you’re just looking to try a massage gun out for the first time.
No matter which model you choose, you stand to save some money. With each massage gun, you’ll get access to Theragun’s free companion app, which is accessible via iPhone or Android. It allows you to select which body area you’d like to massage, and then directs you on which attachment to use, along with the duration you should target for that particular spot.
The best part of grabbing a Theragun massage gun now? Each model sold will [go] CUT help provide 100 meals to people in need across America through the Feeding America program (as well as similar charities across the globe). So, not only will you be helping your own body feel great and recover, you’ll also be helping others get access to much-needed resources. All in all, we call that a win-win.
