Rethink the way you recover.

Let’s be real: In the age of get-up-and-go, the chances that you’re taking proper care of your body post-cardio or lift session, or eight-hour work shift, are low. Recovery is serious business, and right now there may be no bigger name in the game than Theragun.
What/Who It’s For
The Not So Good
When it comes to size and price tag, the Liv is something I could see myself using weekly. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of its pricier counterpart, sure, but it just felt more realistic for my lifestyle. Also something to mention: Theragun sells the attachments separately if I want to bolster my collection.
Using Theragun’s percussive devices showed me that taking care of my body can be done in ways I have never considered before. When used over time, it soothed my tender muscles and past injuries. It made me feel looser and as if I had performed an entire stretching routine in under five minutes.
If you’re not an elite athlete but place high value on recovery (and you should), the Liv is a worthwhile investment. Just try not to boomerang the experience. There are enough videos on the 'gram already.
