Customized Massage Experience

The Power Plate Pulse 2.0 offers a luxurious experience without breaking the bank.

The Power Plate Pulse 2.0 feels compact and durable, and features everything you’d expect from a premium massage gun. At $250, it’s slightly less expensive than other leading brands. Four vibration intensity levels allow you to find the right pressure to truly customize your massage experience.

Level 1 offers 1,300 percussions per minute, and level 4 offers 3,300 percussions per minute. And our reviewers noticed a big difference between each level.

It also comes with six different massage attachments to ensure a thorough massage for all your nooks and crannies. Fleet Feet reviewers noticed how easy it was to change the heads compared to other massage guns.

“Incorporating the Power Plate into my regular post-run routine has been huge for increased blood flow, muscle relaxation and recovery,” says one reviewer.

“It’s really easy to use as it’s surprisingly comfortable to hold and changing the head is really easy,” says a reviewer. “Plus, the AC adapter makes it easy to charge the gun on the go.”

Although this massage gun is powerful, you’d never know it based on sound. It boasts a whisper quiet motor, so you can watch TV, talk on the phone or listen to music while massaging.

The Power Plate Pulse 2.0 is available in black and red and comes with a one year warranty.
