- There are four main percussive Theragun devices. There is the mini, the prime, the elite, and the pro. The mini percussive massager is ultra-portable, the prime is the classic Theragun percussive device, the elite is a premium option, and the pro is professional-grade. Theragun has the world's leading percussive therapy massage devices. They're known around the world for their deep muscle treatment, enhancing muscle recovery, relieving stress and tension, and soothing discomfort. These Theragun devices are smart percussive therapy massagers that provide productive healing and pressure to all different body types.
- The Theragun percussive devices have amazing features that tailor to each individual user. Specifically- the pro, elite, and prime have movable arms that allow for pressure to be applied on different parts of the body at different angles. The arm that applies the pressure works with 60lbs of force. The pro, prime, and elite also have bluetooth capability that connects with a user's smartphone. The Therabody bluetooth app connected to these percussive devices integrate with Apple Health and Google Fit. This app learns from an individual's behaviors and sends routines that can be sent to the percussive devices via Bluetooth?. For example, if a person has sore legs from running, there are percussive routines, pressures and speeds that specifically target and are created for leg pain vs. tender shoulder pain.
- The Theragun pro has 300 minutes of battery life before the batteries need charging again. The Theragun prime and elite both have 120 minutes of battery life and charge by plug. All three devices last from two to three hours which is more than enough time for a percussive muscle targetting massage.
- The elite, prime, and pro, percussive devices all have customizable speed settings and the mini has 3 speed settings. The customizable spped ability is a major highlight of Theragun percussive devices because competitors only have three speed settings like the mini. Being able to customize the speed gives users more control over their therapuetic experience with their Theragun.
Typically the cost range begins at $199 for the mini, $299 for the prime, $399 for the elite, and $599 for the pro. Right now, there are sales on the prime for $249, the elite for $349, and the pro for $449. There are also two Theragun special addition percussive devices. One is by Product(RED) the famous company fighting the aids crisis and all the prices are the same as listed for the mini, elite, and pro (they don't have the prime with Product (RED). Then, there is the special edition 24K Gold PRO Theragun percussive massager for $999. There are also rollers, fitness mats, adapter sets attachments, and chargers that are priced anywhere from $20 for a Standard Ball attachment massager, to $543 for the 'Work From Home' set. There are also balms, tinctures, and lotions available on the site that can be used with the Theragun massaging- the price range for these products are $49-$80.
Without sales, here are the compared costs between the Theragun, TimTam, and Hypervolt massagers. First off Theragun offers four different options for their percussive massagers. TimTam and Hypervolt only offer three. The Theragun mini, Tim Tam pocket, and Hypervolt GO, are all priced the same at $199. Then at next massage level, is the Theragun prime priced at $249, the TimTam all new priced at $249, and the Hypervolt priced at $349. The Theragun Elite is priced at $399, the TimTam pro is priced at $499, and the hypervolt plus is priced at $399. The Elite and the Hypervolt plus are the same exact price, however because Theragun has a fourth option, the Pro, which is priced at $599- it makes Theragun seem more expensive. Their Pro option is $100 more than the Tim Tam pro option, however Theraguns first three percussive massages, are comparable to the first three options by TimTam and HyperIce.
Theragun has easy to clean attachment massage heads. The Theragun pro has four, the Theragun elite has five, and the Theragun prime has four. Theragun pro has the super soft attachment, the dampener attachment, the standard ball attachment, the attachment and the cone attachment. They're used for purposes. The super soft attachment is actually used for sensitive areas including bones, the dampener attachment has an impact level of three out of ten and its use for tender areas and it preferred for all over use. The standard ball attachment and the web attachment are both a five out of ten impact level and are great for large muscle groups and for really decreasing lactic acid levels. The thumb attachment is a seven out of ten impact level and is used for trigger points in the lower back, and the cone attachment is a ten out of ten impact level, which is mostly used to pinpoint muscle treatment. The Theragun elite and prime have a few less attachments then the PRO but the impact is similar, and a customer can always shop for more attachments.
All the Theragun options, including the Theragun mini, can be financed monthly. Depending on which Theragun a customer purchases, the financing changes. The option to finance makes the product more accessible.
There is a two year warranty on Theragun percussive massagers and always free shipping.
Theragun percussive massagers have won several awards and been recognized in several magainzes. Theragun won the 2020 GQ Fitness Awards, Men's Fitness Best Buy Award, New York Design Award, 2020 Most Innovative Company Award, and several others.
Considered the most expensive percussive therapy guns compared to competitors and also seen as loud in unboxing videos on youtube and in customer reviews. It is much louder than it is advertised. On the Theragun website, there is a 'See it in Action' option and all the options don't include an accurate sound depiction of the product.
The mini isn't very small. It's portable, but it's not as small as the TimTam pocket power massager. This can make it hard for users to see it as portable and it's hard to hold. Also, the mini is reviewed well but is said to sometimes not have an effect of deep muscle tensions and specific muscle problems. There are several reviews outside of the Theragun site that have said the Theragun mini stops charging or working very easily, and after a few months the QuietForce technology stops and it gets louder. It's very possible all of these customers had defective products, but that shouldn't be happening either. Lastly, the Theragun mini only requires a small amount of stall force to shut off. This device is not for a deeper massage and it unfortunately only comes with one attachment head.
The Theragun prime is only sold in one color, while the mini, elite and PRO all come in two colors - black and white. Currently, the PRO comes in the special edition Product(RED), but there is usually only a black color option.
There are customer reviews that say the Theragun doesn't help with hard to reach places if an individual is massaging themself. There are also reviews discussing how loud the Theragun actually is, and many complaints about the Theragun percussive massage attachmends cracking after only 2 months of use.
The ideal target market for all Theragun percussive massage guns are ages 27-60. Although Theraguns are great for age ranges outside of these parameters, the price targets a higher income individual, couple, or family. All athletes, gym-goers, sports teams, and sports physical therapists are a great target market for the Theragun.
How long does the product last?
Theraguns have 120 to 300 minute battery life and a 2-year warranty. They are supposed to last for years- It depends on how much it is used/battery life/condition of the device. It doesn't say on the website or on other websites how many years.
There are currently sales on Theraguns website for some of their percussive devices. The sales range from $50-$150 off only for a limited time during the holidays. Sales usually occur during holidays. There are currently extended returns until January 15th, 2021, for customers purchasing Theragun devices as holiday gifts.
GOOD FOR GIFTING?
This product is expensive, but not too expensive to give as a gift. It's not an everyday gift, because once an indivudal has one, they won't need to buy another for a while. However, because Therguns have accessories for seperate purcahse, it is a gift that can be added on to after its given. Theragun percussive massagers are great gifts for family and friends that are in need for muscle therapy. Tense and sore muscles in the back and neck are very common, and who doesn't like a massage?
