Theragun Pro: $429

Best Buy


Theragun Pro is a professional-grade device constructed for physical therapists, trainers and other professionals, but it’s also great for athletes, however amateur. Like the Theragun Elite, it is equipped with an OLED screen and a customizable speed range of 1,750 to 2,400 PPMs (percussions per minute) with three presets. However, instead of 40 pounds of force, the Pro boasts 60 and is the only model with an adjustable arm, allowing for easier use.

The Theragun Pro comes with six attachments: a dampener, standard ball, wedge, thumb, cone and super soft tip. A two-year warranty (compared with just one with the less expensive models) makes it more appealing for anyone who might use the gadget daily. 

Theragun Pro, $429 (reduced from $599)


Theragun Elite: $329

Theragun Elite

Therabody


The Theragun Elite is really simple to use — you control the intensity of the massage via an up or down press of a button and by varying the pressure you apply on your muscle. (We recommend, from first-hand experience, starting with a lighter touch.) The triangular design makes it really easy to reach all areas of your body on your own, at just the right angles — even those otherwise hard-to-reach spots on your back. It includes five attachments — a dampener, standard ball, thumb, cone and wedge.

It’s a high-end splurge, to be sure, but trust us — you’ll wind up getting a lot of use out of this massage gun once you know how good it makes you feel after a session.

The best price on the white Theragun Elite is direct through Therabody — you’ll save more than $100. You’ll get the best price on the black Theragun Elite at Amazon, where it’s on sale for $20 off.

Theragun Elite, $329 (regularly $399)


Theragun Mini: $179

Therabody


The second generation Theragun Mini weighs just 1.43 pounds. It offers 20 pounds of force and three speeds — 1,750; 2,100 and 2,400 PPMs. While the three standard-size Theragun models are Bluetooth enabled, the mini is not. The Mini may not replace the need for a full-size, full-powered massage gun, but it is a great supplementary option for anyone who travels often or wants to bring a massage gun to the gym.

The Mini is covered under a one-year warranty.

Theragun Mini (second generation), $179 (reduced from $199)


Hyperice Hypervolt Go 2: $109

Amazon


The Hypervolt Go 2 boasts 40 watts of power, two head attachments and three speeds. Its main selling point is its extreme portability – its lack of heft is meant to literally keep you on the go.

“I was gifted a full-size Hypervolt which I use regularly for my legs after runs,” a verified purchaser on Amazon said. “When I travel and do runs away from home, I surely miss my massage gun. So I purchased the Hypervolt Go 2. It charges quickly and is quiet. It will definitely be a good traveling companion for races that are away from home.”
