Last weekend, I finally took my incredibly knotted work-from-home self into the massage therapist for a treat myself day. She ended the session an hour later by begging me to come back very soon because she still didn’t have enough time to work all the knots out of my shoulders.
Why did I just ramble on about my personal life? To make the point that all of our posture kind of sucks right now — being stuck at home and all — and you’re all probably feeling just as tight and sore as I am. Yet, who has the money to pay $100 plus every time they need a massage?
This Saturday August 15, they’ll be slinging a whole bunch of workout gear for excellent prices, but the stand out is absolutely their ‘Aldi Massage Gun‘ with a bunch of interchangeable heads for a ridiculously good $90.
The Aldi Massage Gun has all of the standard that you’d expect from a large Australian retailer; Multiple massage heads, standard body and relatively quiet noise output. For $90 it really is hard to go wrong. That being said though, the $90 price point has become a lot more competitive these days with Target, Kmart, and Harvey Norman all stocking massage guns around this price point. And after reviewing those there are a few obvious draw backs that can be seen. All In all through, its a stock standard massage gun that does offer a decent impact without the price tag.
With such a competitive price point, we have to say that there are a few pros here. The Aldi massage gun itself offers an okay power output for its price. If we were to rank it against all the massage guns we have tried it probably sits between low to moderate. The problem with most massage guns is that they are only available online. This means that you have to order the product before you can try it or simply hope that one of your friends have already taken that gamble. Its a real positive to be able to walk into your local Westfield and give it a go for yourself.
- Only $90
- Low to moderate power output
Some of the major drawbacks here are just any form of value added features. There is no new structure, a minimal 3 massage heads, solid plastic handle, no screen only 3 power levels and it doesn’t even come with a carry case. So when we are talking about stock standard, it really is exactly that. If Target and Kmart never released their massage guns then we feel like you could justify it with the price tag. In comparison though, it simply doesn’t stack up. The power output is not that bad, providing a low to mid level output in comparison to others we have tried.
- Standard handle structure
- Only 3 massage heads
- Plastic handle
- No screen
- 3 power levels, 1 hours of battery life
- No carry case
- Gone in 15 mins of sales due to very limited stock at limited store
- Good warranty, but what are the odds that you kept your aldi receipt as the warranty?
