Top 6 Reasons A Theragun Is Worth The Splurge: What Makes It The Best
Let's face the facts: A couple hundred is no small sum to spend on a small device that literally serves one purpose, I'm talking about the Theragun of course. Considering the abundance of cheaper alternatives on the market, it is easy to see why prospective buyers often question if the Theragun is worth its hefty price tag. We're here to set things straight with 6 reasons why the cult favourite and industry gold standard, Theragun, is worth every penny.
Reason 1: It's Quieter Than Ever Before
Even die-hard fans of the previous Theragun generations will admit that the Theragun is pretty loud. However, the new Theragun 4th Generation now features a proprietary brushless motor with state-of-the-art sound insulation QuietForce Technology. This reduces the noise levels by up to 75% compared to the 3rd generation devices which had a distinct rattling noise akin to a mechanical drill.
Now, the new Theragun series is as quiet as an electric toothbrush whilst retaining all the power and percussion depth it is renowned for, allowing you the freedom to enjoy a bed time massage without worrying about waking the neighbours!
Reason 2: It's Super Ergonomic
The Theragun features a patented Triangle design which provides users with a great degree of flexibility. The ergonomic triangle handle allows users to position their hand as needed for full-body reach, making it easy to target tricky areas such as your back and neck muscles without seeking outside help (or straining your arm). Additionally, the adjustable arm featured in the Theragun PRO model also prevents wrist strain and arm fatigue, making the whole experience pleasant and enjoyable.
Reason 3: The Battery Lasts Incredibly Long
The Theragun Prime packs 120 minutes of battery life while the Theragun Mini and Theragun PRO pack 150 minutes of battery life per charge. Percussive therapy sessions typically last about 10 to 20 minutes each time hence the extensive battery life that the Theragun 4th Generation has to offer is more than enough to get a good session in without having to worry about reaching for a charger.
Reason 4: It Has A Ridiculously High No-stall force
Stall force is essentially an indicator of the power and intensity a massage gun can provide. It refers to the amount of pressure and force that can be applied to a massage gun before its motor stalls. Frequent stalling is the number one way most massage guns fail as at best it causes the battery life to deteriorate and at worst it can lead to motor burn-out.
The Theragun PRO can withstand up to 27kg of stall force while the Theragun Prime can withstand up to 14kg so you can press the Theragun as hard as you'd like into your skin for a truly satisfying deep tissue massage without the risk of stalling the motor.
Reason 5: It Packs A Serious Punch
Amplitude measures how far the massage gun head will travel and how deep the gun will hit. The higher the amplitude, the more intense the massage will be. The Theragun PRO comes with a high quality Japanese industrial-grade motor engineered to precisely deliver 16 mm of amplitude at a speed of 40 percussions per second on the body. This allows for tissue penetration that is 60% deeper than average massagers, providing you with muscle relief and enhanced repair, decreasing pain and increasing range of motion.
Reason 6: It Comes With Personalised Wellness Routines
The Theragun practically comes with a virtual physical therapist in the form of the Therabody application. Therabody learns from your real-time activity and behaviours through integration with major health apps such as Apple Health, Google Fit and Samsung Health. It then uses this information to recommend curated personalised wellness routines created by Dr Jason and Therabody's team of physical therapists, trainers and health experts.
Each Theragun is bluetooth enabled and can be linked to the Therabody app to provide real time feedback on applied force and speed control. Get the most out of your massage gun and with 24/7 guidance at your fingertips through the Therabody application, a feature unique to the one and only Theragun.
Let's face another fact: Theragun continues to dominate the industry it pioneered in spite of the presence of cheaper competitors. Backed by A-list athletes and celebrities ranging from Cristiano Ronaldo to Adam Levine, Theragun is no fluke or scam. It is simply a brand that is dedicated to the needs of its' community and remains committed to its promise to deliver the most effective percussive therapy device in the world. So to answer the question of whether the Theragun is worth the hype and worth your money, we only have one thing to say.
