Struggling to find a massage gun for your post-workout recovery that won’t break the bank? Look no further – we’ve rounded up the best massage gun deals for Black Friday 2020, from Theragun to RENPHO.
If you don’t have one already, you’re bound to wanna get one: With a myriad of reported benefits, it’s no surprise that massage guns are increasingly becoming a staple in the arsenals of sports professionals and amateurs alike.
Using percussive therapy, the recent innovation can help to prevent injury, provide temporary pain relief, improve blood circulation, release lactic acid, break up scar tissue and reduce stiffness by hyper-targeting specific muscle groups through vibration – all in just a few minutes and from the comfort of your own home!
Although it’s an investment that will be a saving grace for your sore back, legs, arms, neck or shoulders, a massage gun doesn’t often come too cheap. Luckily, we’ve done the research for you, and scoped out the best massage gun deals to look forward to this coming Black Friday, to alleviate your post-workout woes without sending you broke!
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday 2020 will be on Friday, 27 November.
As it takes place the day after Thanksgiving in America (traditionally the fourth Thursday of November), Black Friday falls on a different date each year. It is on this day that many retailers offer online and in-store price-slashing discounts on a wide array of goods and services, including electronics, clothes, shoes, beauty and more.
What massage gun deals should you look out for?
As an increasingly popular tool for at-home sports therapy, massage guns are sure to make a splash in this year’s Black Friday sales. Based on previous sale events, you can expect to see top deals from sellers and brands including Amazon, Theragun, and Catch.
Amazon did not disappoint on the Black Friday bargains front in 2019, discounting a huge range of electronic products by as much as 50 per cent.
The mega retailer stocks a few different highly-rated massage gun brands that we’ll be looking towards on Black Friday, including RENPHO and Jollyfit. In particular, we love the look of the Renpho Muscle Massage Gun (which has 81 per cent five-star reviews!) and the Chiurr Jollyfit Massage Gun (with a 4.5/5 average from nearly 6,500 reviews).
In 2019, Theragun offered generous discounts on live percussive therapy devices and the G3PRO and G3 massage gun models. The G3PRO model was offered for 33 per cent off, down from $849 to $569. With the recent release of even more advanced models like the Theragun Pro 4th Gen, Theragun Elite, Theragun Prime and Theragun mini, we’re hoping that this year’s Black Friday deals will see us saving hundreds once more.
Theragun is yet to release which of their products will be included in Black Friday 2020 sales, but if it’s anything like last year, we bet you’ll be snagging a bargain!
Catch have always delivered exceptional Black Friday deals over the years, including sales of up to 70 per cent off – and we’re sure this year will be no exception to the rule.
Catch have already launched their Black Friday 2020 landing page to give us a hint of the deals that will be on offer come November. And in great news, it looks like their amazing deals on tech could include massage guns from Steady State – the chosen massage gun brand of NBA players! So keep your eyes on the cute as Hot Pink Power Plus and Mini Charcoal Black models, whose prices are likely to drop this Black Friday.
Are massage guns effective?
Yes, they are. Massage guns can effectively target problem areas of muscle groups, helping to temporarily ease pain, loosen tissue and increase blood flow. A few minutes with a massage gun can save an exxy trip to the massage therapist! As one RENPHO reviewer wrote, “I do a lot of running and sports and this massage gun works very well to relieve my muscle tension and aches very quickly…I would comfortably recommend this to anyone who leads an active lifestyle, and will be recommending this product to my family and friends”.
Do massage guns get rid of knots?
By increasing blood flow to a specific area, massage guns can help to reduce muscle tension and inflammation – in turn helping to knead out any knots you might annoyingly have. Knots can also potentially be loosened by using a massage gun before intense exercise to warm up your muscles.
How often should you use a massage gun?
Theragun recommends using a massage gun two to three times a day for effective use. You can activate and wake up your muscles before you start sweating by using a massage gun for even 30 seconds – or 10-15 seconds mid-workout on a specific muscle group. Just don’t stay on one spot of your body for too more than a couple of minutes to avoid tenderness or bruising of the skin.
