I Reviewed 12 Amazon Massage guns - Which ones the best?

There are many massage guns out there at all different kinds of price points. Are they all the same? Does the 50 dollar massage gun cut it? The answer to that question is NO. You definitely get what you pay for.

There are 2 main things that differentiates massage guns and that is Power and Amplitude.

Power you can measure by stall force usually from 30 lbs all the way up to 70 lbs

Amplitude which is the distance the massage head will travel is usually from 8mm to 16mm.

The higher end massage guns usually have a high stall force and amplitude and the cheaper ones will be on the low end. 

I've reviewed 12 massage guns and in this blog I'll tell you which ones the best.

The links below are affiliated links so if you use them it won't cost you a thing but it will help support my efforts. 

12. AGITATO

Discontinued massage gun that wasn't that great



11. TAOTRONICS\

Super popular style of a massage gun but definitely not worth the coin. Hard pass on this gun



10. OPOVE M3 PRO

Amazons most reviewed massage gun but this one was more vibration than punch. 



9. VIGOROUS INNOVATIONS

Good massage gun but the price wasn't worth it.



8. RECOVER FUN

For $99 this massage gun is worth a look at. 



7. FUSION X

https://lifeprofitness.com/?ref=9vtx_pxsmcr Use Gokurunnerten for $10 off

Heated massage head kicked this massage gun up the list.




6. FUSION FX

https://lifeprofitness.com/?ref=9vtx_pxsmcr Use Gokurunnerten for $10 off

Different modes along with the heat got this massage gun to #6




5. LIFEPRO SONIC 

https://lifeprofitness.com/?ref=9vtx_pxsmcr Use Gokurunnerten for $10 off

Solid massage gun for about 100 bucks. Good stall force and 12 mm amplitude.




4. OYEET NEX

If this were a tad big bigger in amplitude I'd probably put this one at number one. You won't be disappointed by this mini massage gun as it does pack a punch. 



3. URIKAR AT1

Strong powerful massage gun with 16 mm amplitude and 60 lbs of stall force. Solid especially at a pricepoint of $145



2. ACHEDAWAY PRO

Use code "jeremy25" for $25 off

My discount code makes this a little cheaper but it still a bit pricy at $299. 

This one has the strongest stall force at 70 lbs. Powerful massage gun for sure



1. LIFEPRO PULSE FX 

Use Gokurunnerten for $10 off

Solid massage gun with 16 mm and 60 lbs of stall force for $199

The compactness of the gun makes it worth the buy.

Jaybird Vista - The in ear workout buds

The Vista brand is one that I've trusted for many years now. I think the first one's I got were the Jaybird X2's which I loved until Harvey flooded my car which had them in them and they stopped working. 




Fast forward a few years and I got myself the Jaybird Vista truly wireless earbuds. From day one they were great and in the following I'll list out my pro's and con's of them

Pros
  • Bluetooth 5.0 - The connection to my devices was great I could almost run a full 400 meter track with it not breaking up at all if I left my phone in the stands. THATS IMPRESSIVE!
  • Earbuds can be used independently - With each earbud containing their own bluetooth "antennae" these earbuds can be used independently of each other. Great for ultras where you want one ear exposed
  • Battery life - the battery life on these are about 6 hours but if you keep recharging them in the case you can get 30+ hours easily
  • Comfort - I've had these on for multiple hours and I do not get ear fatigued at all.
  • Sound - Some bluetooth earbuds can be lacking in the sound department but these are loud and bassy. With the jaybird app you can customize them even more to however you like them. 
  • Indestructible - these things can take a beating either with water or a physical pounding with its military grade rating. 
Cons 
  • USB-C charger must only be charged with a low output voltage charger. Meaning you do not want to charge these with your fast charger usb plug or you may risk shorting out the system. (customer service was really easy to work with when replacing them for free)
So as you can see the pro's here definitely outweigh the con's. Overall these are a great pair of earbuds to get if you are looking to buy them for yourself or for others. 

Price: $179 
Buy them here Jaybird Vista

AchedAway Pro Review - Best massage gun

 I got this product for review from AchedAway and they sent me over their pro version that just came out.

I've reviewed maybe 7 or 8 massage guns so I know what to look for in massage gun.


 

One of those things is amplitude. The AchedAway Pro has a 16mm amplitude which is the most out of all the massage guns I've tested. Why is amplitude important? Well it makes the difference between a massage gun that feels more vibratory vs one that feels more punchy. This one definitely packs a punch!


The next thing that I look for in a massage gun is power and the way you find that out is by its stall force. The stall force on the AchedAway is 80 lbs which means you'll have a hard time trying to stop the massage gun if you press it against your body. 

Besides that you can find out my thoughts along with my pros/cons in the video below. 


Regularly it cost $299 but check out my discount code down below

I have a discount code that will get you $25 off the gun - JEREMY25

Purchase the AchedAway Pro here: https://achedaway.com/?ref=9vtx_pxsmcr

Heated Massage gun REVIEW - FusionX massage gun


Massage guns are everywhere nowadays. If you look up one massage gun on google or youtube ads start popping up for all kinds of massage guns so it's tough to weed out the good from the bad. In this review I'll go over the pros and cons of the FusionX massage gun and let you know if its worth buying.

THE PROS

1.  Heated massage head - this massage gun has a heated massage head that heats up much faster and much hotter than their previous massage gun the fusionFX. It can reach temperatures of 100 - 130 degrees Celsius. Is it uncomfortably hot? No but it almost reaches that when first on but in my experience it does cool down after you use it a bit. 

2.  It's QUIET - Massage guns are no longer these jack hammer machines that burst your eardrums. It's just about as loud as a portable fridge that you would find in a dorm. Quiet is good for your relaxation. 

3.  Good battery life - It'll last you about 3-5 hours depending on usage.

THE CONS

1.  It's a little big - Bigger than other massage guns that I've used but it's most likely because it has that heating element. 
2.  Doesn't go deep - The amplitude of this massage gun is only 10 mm so while it does percuss it doesn't give a big punch. On high settings though your calves will feel it. 
3.  Price - May be a bit pricey for some but with the heating element and my promo code it can get more affordable. 

So what is that discount code? Just use "GOKURUNNERTEN" to get 10 bucks off the purchase of a FusionX Percussive massage gun.

I'm a BibRave Creator - Sharing my discounts!

Alright so for those that didn't know, before I did YouTube, I was a pretty active blogger, well, semi active blogger. I wrote many race reports, reviews, and other blog post and then I found my love for videoing/editng and YouTube. Both of these let me explore my creative side.

Last month I applied to be a BibRave Pro which is pretty much an awesome community of runners that help promote races, running and running brands. Perfect fit right? Well the people over at BibRave pro thought so too! So I've been accepted as a BibRave pro ambassador as a part of their "creator" program which is more so for my videos on YouTube. This is a new program for them and I'm excited to learn and grow with them.



 So what does this mean for me? Well it means I get FREE RACES!!!!! Oh wait... COVID-19 well I will still get free races once they do come back but also free virtual races which I'll review on my blog or on my YouTube channel.  In these reviews I'll let you know all about the race from start to finish. BibRave is a race review website so it's great for those who travel to races or just want to know if a race is worth spending the moolah on.

Besides free races I will also be able to review cool running gear such as shoes, headphones, buffs, etc... While I already do this on my Youtube channel it is a lot of work to email companies to get product for review. It'll be good to have them do this for me and I'll get to pick and choose which product fits me and my viewers. Reviews are something that helps grow my channel and who doesn't like free stuff? This also means I get to share discount codes to both races and running gear with you which I'll list below.

So excited to be a part of the BibRave community as a BibRave pro!

The Yeti I need for my Truck

So I've really been wanting to buy something for my truck for these crazy Texas summers. Many truckers have a hardcore cooler in the back of their truck bed and I think it's time I finally splurge on one too.

I'm debating on a couple of coolers and these are the ones I'm thinking of

1.  YETI Roadie 20 - its small but gets the job done


2.  Tundra  65 - freaking huge but might be overkill

<meta name="fo-verify" content="050980c7-340e-48be-975e-3d8f79732b05">

Alright let me know which one you would get. Here's the link to http://bit.ly/373y44I for you to check out all the coolers they have.
