    I do a fair amount of weight lifting so aches and tightness come with the territory. I've got a nagging labral issue in my shoulder that i've been dealing with. I ran this little guy on that shoulder for a good hour the other night and while it was left feeling a little sore it wasn't bothering me quite as bad during my next lift. Today after a 5x5 set of squats I noticed some discomfort in my right quad and I used this massager on it and it was definitely providing some immediate relief. I wouldn't say gone, but was definitely helping. The device is surprisingly powerful for a battery operated massager. The charge lifespan seems quite good so far. I can use it for about an hour. I haven't had a ton of time to use it on my back or hips, but it's quite nice on legs, arms, and neck so far. I would highly recommend this massager!!

    The Theragun G3 is an incredible device, that works wonders on your muscles. I’ve been looking for something like this for awhile now, and the G3 doesn’t disappoint. Everything about the G3 screams high quality. From the parts and craftsmanship, to the heavy duty carrying case that it comes in. This device is sure to last a long time. The G3 comes in a heavy duty carrying case that holds the main unit, the extra attachments, and the charger. This makes for a great way to stow away, or take with you. The G3 comes with 4 different attachments, each of them have their own use for muscle relaxation. The Dampener is for general use, bony and tender areas. The standard ball is for everyday use, especially for workouts. The thumb which is a smaller and more stiff tip, that acts as a thumb, is made for lower back and trigger points. Lastly is the cone, this is for pinpoint focused muscle treatment, like the wrist and/ feet. I have tried all the attachments, and I can confirm that they all work as intended. I am no expert at massage therapy, and to be totally honest I had no idea where to, or how to even use the G3. This is where the handy and very well designed app comes in. The Theragun app not only has the full manual built in, but it has detailed instructions on how to use the G3 for every part of your body. This really puts things into perspective, while ensuring you that you’re using it properly. The G3 was designed with both using it on yourself, as well as using it on others. The G3 was made with a multi-grip angle, this allows you to reach parts of your body that otherwise would be inaccessible. There are 3 different areas to grip and hold the device, and the rubber finish makes it easy to hold so it doesn’t slip out of your hand when using it. The first time I tried the G3 on myself I was really amazed at how well it works, it really glides right over your skin with little to no effort. I will say that the unit is pretty loud on the highest setting, but that’s easily forgivable after you experience how good it feels. Lastly, the G3 comes equipped with a built-in rechargeable battery, which is stated to last 60 minutes on a full charge. The uint has a series of 6 lights on the side of it, which lights up indicating how much battery you have left. I think for the amount of power that the G3 offers, the battery life is right on point. Overall, I am extremely impressed with the Theragun G3. The G3 comes equipped with everything one could ask for in a portable massager, plus some. It did wonders on my sore muscles and helped me to work out many knots that I had built up. The Theragun app, acts as a great interactive instruction manual, that teaches you everything you need to know about the device. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, weather to loosen up for workout, or for simply massaging.

    This is the best device on the market! After trying a friend's Theragun at the gym I instantly felt better. I used it before my workout to loosen my muscles and warm up, and I used it after my workout so I didn't feel sore the next day. I bought one and have been using it almost daily. The price was a concern but I was able to claim the Theragun on my health spending account at work because it is a medical device.


  • Too good!

    This thing has quite the motor in it, my gosh!! All other massage devices that I have tried are either too general, too soft, or both. I don't know of anything else out there that can offer the speed and precision that this allows for. I kinda wish there was an option for a slower speed as that would be nice at times too.

    I’m not a huge fan of stretching so I looked into the Theragun as a substitute to get blood flowing post workout. It hasn’t disappointed as it has helped speed up my recovery. It’s been a great addition to my home gym. I only buy quality equipment such as Rogue and Theragun is no exception. The quality of the product makes it seem like a commercial rated equipment. The sound is quiet but the power is tremendous. This isn’t your grandmas massager by any means. My routine is to use theragun pre and post work out now to help blood flow and I believe it’ll help recovery as well as prevent any injuries. I was hesitant to purchase it but after trying out my friends theragun I knew it would be a mainstay in my home gym. Instead of saving a few bucks on cheap knockoffs, I’d suggest getting the genuine product and invest in theragun.

    I work at a desk job for long hours and over time I have built up these two bulges around my neck and shoulders. I'm in pain all the time. When my friend introduced me to Theragun I was ecstatic. I ordered this and it couldn't arrive a minute too soon. I've been using this the minute I got it and it's been such a huge relief on my shoulders and back. The G3 is just the right amount of strength with interchangeable knobs. It's relatively quiet. For the first time in a long time I felt relief in my shoulders. I love it and its worth every penny spent. I'm finally able to get a full night's sleep without any pain.


  • Check Mate Game Over!

    I've purchased massage machines in the past, for shoulder and back pain. All typically the same, and at some point stopped using it. The Theragun is just different. The intensity of the massage is utterly ridiculous and can't be compared. Deep tissue consistency that you couldn't get from other devices in the past. This changes the game completely. This would be a great stocking stuffer this holiday season.

    First impressions on opening the shipping box, this thing is well packaged. The carrying case is perfectly formed to hold the Theragun in place, don't have to worry about it sliding around when you need to take it with you. And it is solid. The Theragun feels very industrial, not flimsy at all which bodes well for how strong this thing is. I was a bit hesitant and intimidated by the pulsing, concerned that it might be too strong but turns out there was no cause for concern. I've only tried a couple of the interchangeable tips thus far. The default tip is the most comfortable and broad so it covers more surface area. Opening it up the unit had some charge however I plugged it in to bring it up to a full charge before testing it out. Even after about 5-10 minutes of use there was a ton of charge left. And for the results - I used this after a heavy leg work out, quads were tight. Within just a minute or two of focused massaging with the Theragun my muscles were starting to relax. Amazingly near instant results. I've already been spreading the word to friends and family.


  • Perfect for my on-the-go needs

    As a videographer, I’m constantly traveling and lugging equipment around and holding camera rigs during production and I’m yet to find a better massage tool to combat the soreness I experience after long work days. Highly recommend for creatives on the go or anyone putting their body to work on a daily basis.

    My girlfriend and I use it every night before bed to relax our backs and my neck. I sit at a desk all day and get tight pretty easy. Theragun was recommended by my massage therapist and I couldn't be happier with the results!
