Aussies experience the Theragun revolution this year
The global leader in percussive therapy and wellness champion, Theragun, Inc., has recently launched three new game-changing wellness devices in Australia, including the professional-grade G3PRO, the premium G3, and the lightweight, simplified liv for everyday relief.
With over a decade of research and development dedicated to breakthrough science, Theragun is renowned for developing solutions which help relieve muscle tension, improve performance, and assist recovery. Benefits also include accelerated muscle repair, increased range of motion, activating muscles, and helping to naturally relieve stress and tightness. The perfect partner to the devices, the user-friendly Theragun app, offers personalised guides on how to use your Theragun, based on your specific needs.
"We're thrilled to have launched Theragun in Australia, the perfect market for us and one where we believe we will be able to make a massive difference to people's lives. A nation defined by its love of the outdoors and active lifestyle, we can't wait to see the Australian response to our products," said Dr. Jason Wersland, founder and creator of Theragun. "We've had huge success in our homeland of the US, alongside the UK, Europe and China, and I truly believe Theragun will help Australians live fuller, happier, tension-free lives, and empower them to take ownership over their own health and bodies."
Fully customisable, the G3PRO provides the ultimate Theragun experience and includes six attachments, allowing for a range of uses including trigger point therapy, pinpoint muscle treatment, and more. Retailing at $849, the G3PRO is the most powerful percussive therapy tool on the market. It also features a proprietary ergonomic multi-grip design, two speeds, and a protective travel case. The G3PRO is the third iteration of the ground-breaking Theragun device, and has evolved in a way that provides new health and wellness solutions for all body types.
Featuring a sleek profile and monochromatic black or white design, the G3 is Australia's new essential companion for complete whole-body healing and recovery. Priced at $549, the G3 provides the quietest Theragun experience, and like the PRO, the G3 has two speeds " one standard speed and a lighter speed for sore, sensitive areas. The G3 also comes with a protective travel case and four physician-designed attachments that are compatible with the G3PRO, engineered to maximise user capabilities.
The liv provides powerful, deep muscle treatment and is the everyday solution to support tension and stress relief, priced at $375. Portable and powerful, the liv offers the Theragun standard 16 mm amplitude and one easy-to-use speed at 40 percussions per second. The liv comes in a dual-toned colourway of black and white, with a satin travel pouch and two attachments.
Officially launched in the United States in 2016, Theragun is now a global wellness industry leader and its products are trusted by over 250 professional sports teams worldwide, physical therapists, trainers, chiropractors, celebrities, athletes, and everyday people in over 50 countries.
Review: My partner is a CrossFit fanatic (my appointing, not his) and he has wanted to try a massage-gun for quite a while, especially a Theragun, and he couldn't be more impressed with the product. As he knew what to expect he wasn't surprised by the concept of a strong vibrating "massage" gun-like device, although I thought it felt a little weird however the relief provided is worth the initial strangeness.
Just quickly, a massage-gun is a device that works as a masseur that you can easily use, on yourself, anywhere, anytime! Interestingly, the Theragun was actually developed by a chiropractor (who was probably tired of relieving everyone else's sore spots and not their own)…
The Theragun G3PRO is a machine that certainly does work and can repair, heal and fix tired muscles. Mr CrossFit suffers from Bicep Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow and shoulder mobility issues and he says (numerous times, now, to everyone that will listen) that using the Theragun before a training session has been helpful in allowing him extra mobility. The extra flexibility provided from using the Theragun to loosen tired muscles enabled him to perform stronger movements and improve his squat snatch and overhead squat, significantly. He found the online tutorials most beneficial when using the machine on his specific issues.
Mr CrossFit (it's really sticking now and he is going to hate me…) said the regular use helped him with recovery especially as his currently training, most days, for an upcoming competition and when I asked what his overall favourite thing about the Theragun G3PRO was, he said "it does exactly what it says it does".
As I'm currently pregnant, I'm sore EVERYWHERE and although I received clearance on using the product with my Obstetrician and a Midwife, I did have some areas I needed to stay clear of. I had great relief when using the Theragun on my sore quads and glutes, especially before bed – yes, a massage in the comfort of your own home and bed... #dream
My favourite part about the Theragun is that you can use it on yourself or on another... I'm truly not saddened by being replaced by a massage-gun. Our Theragun G3PRO is now always on charge… because it's continually being used! We both would definitely recommend the product for anyone (CrossFit fanatic or not).
