You’ve seen that Theragun massage gun all over social media and so I’m putting it to the test to answer once-and-for-all, is it really worth it? My answer may surprise you!
It’s time for another episode of “Is It Worth It…Let Me Work It” where we look at one particular product that’s getting some buzz, we buy it, try it, and let you know if we think it’s actually worth it. Not everything is going to be worth it!
Everyone has been talking about Theragun for a while now and so I got my hands on one (their Pro version) that I bought myself, thank you very much.
Out of all the massage gun brands out there I have to admit Theragun really is the best, in my opinion. They’ve been around the longest, have a wide variety of quality massage guns, and really are trailblazers in this space.
If you’re new to the massage gun space, most are utilizing vibration therapy in order to provide a variety of health benefits. Some of these benefits you may experience include:
- Increased muscle mass
- Improved circulation
- Increased bone density
- Reduced joint pain
- Boosted metabolism
I’m not going to lie. When I purchased mine, I did experience a bit of sticker shock (priced at $599). But I was looking forward to using it and testing it out. Here’s how I tested it and how long I tested it:
- Used it for 4 weeks
- Pre and Post workouts (4 times per week)
- Once per week (before and after a run)
- Focused mainly on my legs and lower back
When it comes to the pros and cons of my Theragun experience, here’s how it went.
Let’s not forget about the cons:
Ok, so this is it. When all is said and done, is Theragun really worth it?
So this is really a tough one for me to answer. I do want to go on record saying that it totally worked, did what it said, and made me feel great. But for me, it really does come down to the price.
At $599, I felt that even though it is a top quality massage gun, the price is just not really worth it, especially if you’re not really a pro athlete. Plus, there are a few other massage guns that (Hyperice massage gun and Homedics massager) do basically the same thing, but for a much cheaper price.
For example, the Hyperice comes in at only $299 and the Homedics option comes in at only $99.99. I’m fully aware the quality may not be the same as Theragun, but for what most of us need, you’re still going to get the same effects for a much cheaper price.
So, for me, Theragun really isn’t worth it. However, if money is no object and you want something that actual professionals use, you can check it out.
