The new year is right around the corner, which means most people are starting to amp up their fitness routines. Harder workouts generally produce sore and aching muscles — but you can stave off the excuses and keep up your wellness momentum with the proper self-care routine.
To this end, getting a massage therapy gun is one of the best things you can do. These devices can help reduce joint and muscle pain, increase circulation, break up knots, release trigger points, and improve your overall recovery, which is why even professional athletes use them.
Massage gun brand Theragun has doubtlessly propelled this technology to the forefront of the fitness scene, but they’re not the only brand worth your time—which is a good thing since their models can run close to $600.
These five self massagers are much more affordable alternatives to the much-lauded Theragun. Pick the one you want and use coupon code GREENMONDAY20 to save an extra 20 percent off the sale price.
