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?
