Aldi’s $90 massage gun is an exact dupe of the $900 version

As anyone who’s ever stayed up late enough to see Danoz Direct can attest, the novelty of getting new gadgets wears off pretty darn quick. (See: the Ab Circle Pro currently gathering dust at the back of my garage.) Every now and then though, one crops up with real staying power. Enter Aldi’s $90 massage gun.

Courtesy of the German retailer’s Special Buys range, the product is essentially a cheaper version of the Theragun which retails for $899 in Aus. It comes with five interchangeable heads and three intensity settings, depending on your desired pressure and the muscles you want to target.

It originally went on sale back in January and quickly garnered cult-like status for its ability to effectively ease pain and tightness without breaking the bank. 

“What a bargain, these things are so expensive usually,” one person wrote on Facebook. “This is the last thing you would think of Aldi selling,” another added, explaining they’d paid a pretty penny for a similar product. One fan admitted she uses hers every day and it “works a treat.”

As for the other items featured in this month’s fitness-themed sale? A boxing tower and bag ($199),  exercise bike ($199) and compression tights (starting at $14.99).

We know how we’ll be spending this lockdown (sorry, wallet!) This promotion will be running in-store as of August 15.

What’s your go-to way to ease muscle pain?

  1. Aldi always has some Awesome Deals on everything and they are only for a limited time. Really love some of Aldi’s Cloth Masks they make your skin feel wonderful.

    This Massager sounds great will check it out in Aldi.

  2. It looks like a power tool. I doubt it would be good for the back of my neck.

    I do yoga stretches &, if necessary, a hot water bottle when I’ve got muscle aches. A bath with magnesium salts is soothing, too.

  3. I have a thing like that I got as a gift for Chrissy. I know what you mean – I haven’t had a chance to use it yet – it’s one of those foot bath massager pool things that you plug in. Maybe now I remembered about it from reading your comment I’ll pull it out of the cupboard this weekend! ; )

  4. My parents have two of those electric massagers and I guess they use it on and off but it’s best to put it where you can see it otherwise out of sight out of mind.

  5. Wow!! That looks amazing!! I love massages especially, now with working from home I feel like my posture is a tiny bit worse at home and been feeling it in my muscles a lot more (either that or I am just feeling my age) haha

  6. Aldi has some amazing stuff sometimes!

    Me personally, I’d prefer the real deal over what appears to be a somewhat frightening contraption, but whatever floats your boat. For now I’ll stick to massaging in some magnesium oil spray stuff whenever my muscles tense up.
