Tested: The Theragun G3

Working out can be hard, but the pain that comes after is even worse, and while we all want to run off and get a massage, that’s not possible for most of us. That’s why Theragun has become so insanely popular.

For those of you that don’t know, Theragun is a hand-held device that offers a deep muscle massage treatment. The claim is that it will make you feel better, move better, and recover faster with tension and soreness relief, so we thought we would put that to the test.

So we grabbed the Theragun G3, hit the gym and let the 30-day test cycle begin with this percussive therapy device.


What is percussive therapy?

Percussive therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation intended to reduce muscle soreness and increase range of motion.

Percussive therapy devices use a hammering or thumping movement in addition to vibrations. Some models also use circular motions, and most offer varying speeds and pressure.


Does it work?

While there are many opinions on percussive therapy, it’s used to reduce pain and stress and is used by sports therapists and athletes the world over. While we know that nothing gets rid of all pain, issue, swelling etc, it’s been proven to help the majority of users for a variety of issues.


How was the experience with Theragun?

First, I’ve not taken the time to test any of the other devices on the market, but I have to admit, I’m pretty addicted to Theragun. I didn’t have any significant issues to deal with, so I’m not claiming that it will fix all problems, but it’s incredible for relief from workout or exercise pains, strained, stretched muscle, and honestly felt like it just over helped with the recovery process.

It also just feels terrific and relaxing, which can help to unwind at the end of a long day or after an intense workout.


If you’re looking to get some relief from your high-intensity life, then the Theragun may be the perfect purchase for you. Theragun G3 is available for CAD 499.00.
