Q: I take my training and recovery very seriously. I am interested in the Theragun, but it’s expensive. I have seen similar products locally that are more affordable. Do you recommend I get one?

A: For those in the dark, a Theragun is a hand-held self-massager. Sounds great. It looks like a power drill and literally pounds the body at 40 beats a second using a technique the makers call “percussive massage therapy”.
