For the most stubborn aches and pains, the Theragun Elite is there to provide quick relief.
Theragun says its Theragun Elite reaches 60 percent deeper into your muscles than the average massage gun, helping break up tightness and adhesions to increase circulation to affected areas and promote recovery.
The Theragun Elite comes with five different attachments and an ergonomic handle, making it easy to massage different types of muscles, and a protective carrying case lets you take it on the go.
“This massage gun has been a game changer for me,” Caroline says. “Not only is it lighter and quieter than the other guns I’ve tried, but it’s a lot easier to hit different muscle groups thanks to the triangular-shaped handle. My old massage gun just had a traditional handle and it was a bit difficult to hold it behind me to target my hamstrings and glutes.”
Equipped with Theragun’s QuietForce technology QX65 motor, a brushless motor surrounded by insulation, the Theragun Elite is quieter than most massage guns. This makes it easy to watch TV or listen to a podcast while working out any sore spots. An OLED screen shows the speed settings and battery life of your device.
“The Theragun Elite feels much lighter than the other massage guns I’ve tried, and it’s also quieter,” Caroline says. “It was easy to figure out how to turn it on and adjust the different levels of pressure. I love how you can actually see what the speed level is and what the battery level is on the digital screen—it makes it easy to use.”
The Theragun Elite is easy to charge with the included power adapter or a wireless charging stand, which you can purchase separately. Plus, this massage gun is equipped with Bluetooth capability. This means you can connect your device to the Therabody app which hosts preset treatment routines along with recommended massage plans based on your usage.
Overall, the Therabody Theragun Elite is a do-it-all massage tool. The five interchangeable heads make it easy to focus on sensitive trigger points like feet, shoulder blades and your IT band. The triangular shaped handle allows you to massage hard-to-reach areas like your back, glutes and hamstrings.
“Having this massage gun has really improved my experience during the first few minutes of my run,” Caroline says. “I’m able to thoroughly massage the knots and tightness that plague my calves before I get started, eliminating the soreness that often accompanies warming up. The size is reasonable for a top-tier massage gun, and while it’s not technically travel-sized, I can fit it into my carry-on bag while traveling.”
